Price for Alaska state park cabins going up

KENAI, Alaska — Campers will soon see a fee increase for public cabins maintained by Alaska State Parks.

The Peninsula Clarion reported that the increase, between $5 and $10 per night, depending on the cabin, will go into effect May 15 — though prior reservations made for the cabins will not be changed.

State parks deputy director Claire LaClaire said many of the state’s 66 cabins have been booked for months.

LeClaire said the state has not changed its fees for state park cabin reservations nine years and the state has continued to add cabins and seen use expand during that time. She added fees from cabin-use as well as state maintained campgrounds and boat launches are used to pay for staff, utilities, operations costs and supplies for park areas.
