Lake Alpine Lodge sits overlooking the Lake and Campgrounds. Scattered in the trees around the lodge are 45 summer cabins on U.S. Forest Service land. They are very small, very rustic, rarely come up for sale, and when they do they sell quickly. When you purchase a cabin at Lake Alpine, you are not purchasing the land the cabin sits on, only the cabin. Access to the cabins in winter is restricted as the road to Lake Alpine is closed to all but snowmobile traffic. Of course you can ski or snowshoe as well but no cars or trucks.
