On August 15, 2009 a new public use cabin opened for business at Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.  The new cabin is a 9 minute walk along the lake from the Kelly Lake Campground.  Site preparation work began in June and construction continued throughout the summer.  Park Ranger Gary Titus, the KENWR Cabin Program Manager, constructed the cabin with the help of his Cabin Crew, Mike Long and Iven Sjodin; the summer Youth Conservation Corps; KENWR Trail Crew; and the KENWR maintenance staff.  This cabin brings the total available public use cabins on Kenai Refuge to 16. 

The Cabin Program at KENWR contains a total of 24 cabins - 2 of which are on the National Historic Register.  There are 6 Administrative/Interpretive cabins, 7 new Reservation cabins, 7 historic Reservation cabins, 2 Historic first-come-first-serve, and 2 cabins that are on loan to museums.  Cabin availability can be viewed on the Refuge website at http://kenai.fws.gov/cabin.htm and reservations made by contacting the Refuge at 907-262-7021.
