There are four public use cabins located within the preserve. The cabins are along the Yukon River corridor; located at Kandik River mouth, Nation Bluff, Glenn Creek, and historic Slaven's Roadhouse at the mouth of Coal Creek. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There are several cabins located along the route that are private and not open for public lodging. It is the responsibility of the visitor to obtain necessary information and avoid private property.

Backcountry camping is permitted on any federally owned land within the preserve. Breezes that reduce insect levels blow on sand bars. Please practice low impact camping techniques and leave camping sites free of refuse. Pack everything out and leave NO garbage. A few primitive cabins are also open to public use along the Yukon. The land on either side of the Yukon River between Calico Bluff, near Eagle, and just below the mouth of the Tatonduk River is native owned. Hungwitchin Native Corporation asks that visitors refrain from camping along this 16-mile section of their lands.

Campgrounds and waysides operated by the Bureau of Land Management are located along the Taylor and Steese Highways. Both Eagle and Circle have small campgrounds located in or near each community.

There is no commercial lodging in the preserve. Commercial facilities exist in Eagle, Circle, and Circle Hot Springs.
