Blackburn Cabins is located at:
Mile 1 Kennicott Wagon Road
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
Blackburn Cabins is located in the center of the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, along the five mile Wagon Road connecting McCarthy and Kennicott (within a mile from the footbridge and McCarthy).
If you drive or take a shuttle to the end of the road, you park there in the lot and walk over the Kennicott River on a footbridge. We’ll meet you on the other side and drive you the mile to our Blackburn Cabins. From there, you can explore by hiking, biking, or shuttle. Full arrival details will be sent when you make your reservation!
We are located near local tourist sites, convenient to the airstrip, yet in touch with nature and close to the land which is the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. You can fly in or come in on the mail plane from Anchorage. We are adjacent to the McCarthy Airstrip, which now provides fuel! If you’re motorcycle touring around Alaska, you can ride across the footbridge and right to the front door of your cabin! We even welcome guests year-round: You can snowmachine right to the front door of your cabin when there’s snow on the ground!
Don’t be shy about calling and asking about road and weather conditions, and what’s happening now that you just can’t miss out on… There’s always some adventure waiting here in the Wrangells!
Come by car, shuttle, or plane… we look forward to seeing you!
