Our First-Hand Experience

Martha, our Family team traveler that is in her mid 70’s joined us on this trip.  Oh the memories we have with her catching her first King Salmon and it was a whopper at over 30 pounds.  We have the photos to prove it and her expression says it all!

Bear camp in domed tents overnight was a highlight as we flew by tundra plane landing on the beach.  The afternoon and the next morning we spent observing bears and lots of them including youngsters.  One day we took a trip to Seward and along the way we hiked to a glacier.  Then once in Seward, our large boat took us to see the huge glacier and lots of marine life.  A whale breached right in front of us and numerous others played nearby. What a treat!

Right in front of the lodge we caught Salmon on our own in the evenings.  We say that this trip was like a cruise on the ground with so many activities to choose from.  We will remember this trip with Martha for the rest of our lives.

Sitting on 25 acres of the original homestead site, the Kenai riverside lodge is at the very core of all they do. Overlooking the confluence of the Kenai and Moose rivers and an amazing view of the snowcapped Chugach Range, the envy of other Alaska fishing lodges features a quarter mile of what is unquestionably the finest shore fishing on the Kenai River.

In addition to the great Kenai River fishing, the confluence of the Moose and Kenai also provides them access to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge…just over a mile upstream from the lodge this warm, meandering and shallow stream is home to a prodigious amount of wildlife- nesting Tundra Swans, giant Alaskan Moose and Brown Bear, Lynx, Otter, Beaver, Eagles, Osprey and much more call this area home.  Each evening canoes and kayaks are on the beach for your use to explore them on your own… Also offered guided trips that range deeper into the area and return via shallow running custom riverboats.

You won’t need to travel with your fishing equipment as all equipment is included in their packages!  This is an all-around fantastic lodge whether fishing is your passion or sightseeing nature is your goal.

When we visited this amazingly diverse lodge, we were impressed with the variety of activities.  Each day was a new an unique new adventure for us.  The whale breaching that you see in the photo above was just off the bow of our boat!  We spent the night at the lovely bear camp where we saw cubs playing in the streams, big brown bears walking through the water on the coast line.  What an amazing sight to see, only to be followed by killer whales and glaciers in the same afternoon.  We hiked to beautiful glaciers, caught big King Salmon, fished from the banks of the lodge and at the end of our adventure, we chose a float plane back to Anchorage where we explored the city.  Our time at this lodge was a perfect combination of fishing and activities and it makes for a fantastic family adventure.
