There’s a new public-use overnight facility in Chugach State Park. Friends of Eagle River Nature Center have opened the Yukla Yurt, which can sleep up to six people. It’s a 2.5-mile hike from the Eagle River Nature Center, with firewood provided by volunteers. Rental is $65 per night or $55 per night for FERNC members. Visit ernc.org to make a reservation.
