Alaska Residents: Stake Your Own Parcel of State Land

Aug 14, 2019 | Monitor

ANCHORAGE—The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is inviting Alaskans interested in owning a piece of the Last Frontier to participate in the 2019 Remote Recreational Cabin Sites staking program.

Alaska residents may submit applications with a $75 application fee in person, by mail or online between 10 a.m. on August 19 and 5 p.m. on October 11. The drawing will be held November 5. Free brochures describing this year’s Remote Recreational Cabin Sites offering are available online at http://landsales.alaska.gov and in print from DNR’s Public Information Centers in Anchorage and Fairbanks.

“This is an opportunity for Alaskans to own a piece of Alaska and the Alaskan dream,” said Governor Mike Dunleavy. “The Remote Recreational Cabin Sites staking program is part of my administration’s goal to put more state land in the hands of Alaskans so they can get out and enjoy our great state with their families.”

Winners will receive authorization to stake their parcel within one of four staking areas:

The Innoko II area along the Innoko River, 65 miles northwest of McGrath
The Kantishna II area, along the Kantishna River, 70 air miles west of Fairbanks
The Redlands II area, along the Chitanana River, 25 miles west of Manley Hot Springs
The Mankomen Lake area, near Mankomen Lake, 30 miles east of Paxson

Successful stakers sign a three-year state lease while the parcel is surveyed and appraised. Survey and appraisal costs are in addition to quarterly lease payments. Stakers may buy their parcels for the appraised value, minus paid costs.
