visit_vogel_lake

The Refuge cabin program began in May of 2005.  The refuge has 14 cabins available for reservation and 2 cabins available on a first come, first served basis.  Cabins are a combination of new 16' x 18' log trapper-style cabins and restored historical cabins built by early residents of the Kenai Peninsula.  Reservations for cabins on the refuge can be made at http://recreation.gov or by calling 1-877-444-6777.
