Donna Lake Cabin

View from the cabinThe Donna Lake cabin is located on the north shore of Big Donna Lake, a small stocked lake located south of the Alaska Highway just east of the Gerstle River. The trailhead is about 30 miles southeast of Delta Junction, on the right at mile 1391.7 of the Alaska Highway, where there is lots of parking and a double-ended turnout with an ATV/snowmachine loading ramp.

There is excellent fishing for rainbow trout at Big Donna Lake, and beautiful views of the Alaska Range. The lake can be accessed by walking or by ATV during the summer months, and by snowmachine between late-November and mid-April, by way of a 4-mile overland trail.
