Location and Access

Allan Point Cabin is situated within the vast expanse of the Tongass National Forest, the largest national forest in the United States, located in southeastern Alaska. Specifically, the cabin is perched on the northern shore of Hasselborg Lake on Admiralty Island, known for having one of the highest densities of brown bears.

Access to the site is generally by floatplane, and it's approximately a 25- to 30-minute flight from Juneau or a 60-minute flight from Sitka. There are no roads on Admiralty Island that will bring you to the cabin. Boat access is also possible but can be challenging due to the remoteness and potential for adverse weather conditions. It's essential to make arrangements well in advance for transportation since options can be limited.
