Lynx Lake Cabin 1

There are three cabins on Lynx Lake. In most cases cabin one is the best option for float planes. It is on a point and you can tie up on either side so you can get protection for the plane in almost any condition. Like all cabins in the area there is a low amount of fire wood. Cabin two and three are right next to each other so if you have a group they would be a better option. There is a dirt road next to cabin two and three. I looked for a trail from cabin one to the road but did not see one.  If I was coming by car pick two or three. If you are coming by boat or plane pick cabin one.

  • Nancy Lake State Recreation Area is one of Alaska's few flat, lake-studded landscapes preserved in its natural state for recreation. Lakes, streams, and swamps make up just over half of this 22,685 acre area which lies between the Susitna River on the west and the Talkeetna Mountains on the east. The setting is great for canoeing, hiking, fishing, and camping. In winter, the rolling topography is ideal for cross-country skiing, dog-mushing, and snowmachining.

    Nancy Lake State Recreation Area is a 75 minute drive north of Anchorage. The community of Willow lies just north of the recreation area entrance at Mile 67.3 of the Parks Highway, and has a full range of services nearby for the traveler. The Nancy Lake Public Use Cabins are located on four of the larger lakes in the recreation area and are accessible by canoe, foot, or floatplane, in the summer, and skis, dog sled, snow vehicles, or airplane in winter. Planes can land on Nancy, Lynx, and Red Shirt lakes year round. In the winter, check ice thickness reports with the local state park office.
