Description
You and your pup are adventurers, right? You guys live to be off the grid, doing your own thing, exploring all the areas other people would never dream of exploring. If this sounds like the two of you, then say hello to the campground of your dreams, the Big Shaheen Cabin in the Tongass National Forest. 

This cabin is one of three on the Hasselborg Lake and requires either boat, canoe, or floatplane access in order to get to the cabin. Elevated at 300 feet above the lake, the cabin sits under the canopy of an old growth forest at the edge of the Kootznoo Wilderness, an area that encompasses nearly 956,255 acres of the island. The cabin itself has two bedrooms and a living room, a kitchen area, and can accommodate up to 8 people. 

There are vault toilets outside the cabin, benches, a cooking counter, an oil stove to provide you with (some) heat, and several primitive trails that extend from the cabin directly into the forest. The cabin does not have electricity or running water, so, ensure that you're treating water or bringing your own. There are limited supplies, so you'll need to really prepare for this camping trip. 

Like we said, your pup is welcome to join you if you're planning to stay at the Big Shaheen Cabin and explore the rugged Alaska terrain, but they don't allow free-roaming dogs here. All pups must be kept on a leash if you have them outside the cabin or outside your vehicle. The leash is required to be a maximum of 6 feet long so that you're best able to control your dog. 

While there's no one on site to ensure you're controlling your pup, these rules are put into effect specifically to protect you, your dog, and the surrounding wildlife. Respect these rules, respect the nature around you, and remain aware of your surroundings, and you and your pup are likely to have a wonderful, remote camping trip!
