Miller’s Landing to Callisto Cabin & Derby Cove Water Taxi

Callisto Cabin and Derby Cove are two popularly requested drop-off sites for the Miller’s Landing water taxi. There are two State Park cabins there for rent – one at each destination.

These cabins are on the Caines Head 5 Mile Coastal Trail – listed as one of the top 10 hikes in Alaska. The trailhead begins near Miller’s Landing, is tidal dependent and goes five miles along the shoreline to Caine’s Head.

At Caines Head there are more hiking and photo opportunities – see Caines Head Trail and Caine’s Head for more information on the trail.  There are good fishing opportunities too, off the beach in front of the cabin sites for salmon during salmon season.

It also makes a good cabin site for kayakers to spend the night. The cabins here are in excellent condition and hold eight people – see State Park Cabins for more information.

Thumb Cove is one of our most popular destinations. It has everything!  Salmon streams for excellent salmon viewing, State Park Cabin rentals, and lots of wildlife – whales, sea otters, and tons of eagles (near the salmon stream), and we do have an occasional bear sighting. Enjoy great fishing for salmon, an excellent kayaking area (if you want a guide we can arrange that too…), and good berry picking for blueberries and salmon berries, yum! Swimming, believe it or not, on hot summer days has been done here! Fantastic tent camping, lots of hiking trails, bear hunting in the fall for black bear, what else could you ask for?

At Humpy Cove, you can also find remote cabins, accessible only by float plane or water taxi – talk about seclusion and privacy! Check them out here.
