I have given the best advice I can to everyone that has posted on here. Spent a week out there this month. You cannot get a 4 wheeler there in the winter. We pull them in on a sled with a snow machine. To get one there in summer you would boat it to the Tolovana river then maybe ride it to the lake.

Is there some sale on Amazon for lots on this lake??? Seems to attract a bunch of keyboard warriors who like saying they bought something they didn’t. Interesting read though. I’m gonna sell everything and walk to deadman’s lake from Key West. I’ll fish the lake for Tuna that I’ll sell to nearest towns Sushi Bar. Will I need anything more then shorts and t-shirt during winters there???

I too wonder what the fascination is with outsiders and Deadman Lake. It's not like it is the only place to buy remote land in Alaska.

It's not even a big lake either. The other 2,999,999 lakes are irrelevant I'm assuming.

Default Resurrect the Deadman

Greetings all,
I found this thread after purchasing Lot 29 Block 1 at Deadman Lake (Subdivision). NOS482 are you still out there? My 4.5 acres is the East half of your former purchase. Were you ever able to get there? Is the property as described? Northside middle of the lake about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way up the hill? In response to why, for myself, too many years spent as a practicing alcoholic to have an orthodox retirement, therefore unorthodox! As my golden years are going to be spent traveling the country, it will be nice to have a place to go home to, even if it ends up a tipi. In the meantime, 6 Summer vacations to reconnoiter, and prepare. Thanks for listening.

Oh mercy. Sounds like you bought this sight unseen despite all the warnings to the contrary. You don't state where you are from but I'm going to bet you have no idea what living out there will be like, let alone traveling to and from the place.
