This lot would be perfect for someone who wants a remote homestead, a hunting camp with easy access to wilderness, a jumping-off point for the Togiak NWR wilderness area (or Wood-Tikchik State Park); it would also be a fun recreational lot for someone that lives and/or works in the Dillingham area. The area is ridiculously beautiful, very quiet (not on the road system, but a quick flight from Anchorage), and mild (climate-wise) by Alaskan standards. I made an informational video, copy and paste the URL (CL does not allow coding direct links):

Lot 5, Block 9, Snake Lake Subdivision
9.6 acres; currently asking $15,900 (3,900 down, then $300/month for 40 months with no interest). Possible discount for cash offer. I bought this from DNR in 2019ish and sold it once in 2021 (had to foreclose and learned the process costs about 4k, hence asking for 3,900 down so I don't take another loss).

Pros:
-There are no snakes in Snake Lake. Or in Alaska, for that matter.
-No restrictions, covenants, or property taxes (not in an organized borough).
-Bordered by state land on the west for a short distance, then by literally millions of acres of wilderness area in the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge.
-Small creek runs through the property.
-Good soil by local standards—well-drained gravelly loam till.
-Amazing views. One of the most beautiful places in Alaska.
-Lots of wildlife, including caribou (2 local herds), moose, bear, wolf, beaver, lynx, etc.
-Excellent local fishing (you want to get salmon from the bay, though—they get in worse shape the farther upstream they have to swim). Bristol Bay has the largest wild sockeye salmon runs in the world.
-Local town (Dillingham) has a large airport, daily flights from Anchorage, hospital, schools, stores, a University of Alaska extension, friendly people, and lots of fishing jobs in summer. It is also a regional hub for many surrounding villages.
-You can drive to the lake from Dillingham.

Cons:
-You cannot drive to Dillingham from the rest of Alaska.
-The lot is remote. Transporting things there would be tricky, and building materials are expensive in Dillingham (though there are local trees available on state land that could be used for building).
-You would need a snowmachine for winter access and a skiff or plane for summer access.
