Skwentna Post Office
Steve is the Post Master

Did you know that the Skwentna Post Office is located in an old trapper’s cabin? It is across the Skwentna River from the main community. During the spring and fall when the water is thawing or freezing, the post office is not open because it is impossible to get across the water. The mail is flown in from Anchorage on Mondays and Thursdays if the weather is good. it usually flies right over our cabin on Cub Lake. Steve picks the mail up from the airport and either snow machines or uses a boat to transport the mail across the river to the little cabin. Most of the residents who get their mail at the little post office would like to see it moved to the other side of the river so it can remain open year round.
