We were a tough group to accommodate. We came in on Friday and left the following Thursday which is unusal. Most guests stay from Sunday to Saturday. Dorothy and her crew were exceptional and welcomed us as they would any traveler even though I am sure we made scheduling a nightmare. Dorothy is a hoot. It's literaly like talking to... More

My dad, brother and I took our second trip to the Kenai Peninsula and were looking for a better experience than when we stayed at a cabin in Soldotna 5 years earlier. From my first phone call in January Dorothy great. She helped us choose a week based on what type of fishing we were looking for, let us know... More

My job is to travel and evaluate outfitters and lodges like this one, so I always approach each expedition with some caution. Dorothy Baker being an on site owner put me at ease over the phone and once we arrived, I was elated with the operation. Each and every day got better and better. The folks leaving called her "Aunt... More

My husband and I traveled to the Kenai to pick up a dog last May...Crooked Creek looked to be the nicest place so we booked it for several nights...I wished it had been more. If you want an authentic Alaska experience, with the cuisine far beyond your expectations stay with "Aunt Dorothy"...the woman is amazing! The room was so comfortable,... More

My family went to Crooked Creek blind, only having seen an add in the local fishing paper. We could not have been more surprised and pleased. On the night we arrived, another large party of fisherman from Hawaii were there, celebrating their catch. Hence we began the stay with a yard party, filled with new friends, sashimi and the most...

My wife and I were looking to fish the Kenai Peninsula without the worry of the "uncertainties". We were more than pleased with the friendly welcome and hospitality of Aunt Dorothy from the moment we arrived until our departure. Every day was an adventure; from the fishing ,the fly-out, the excellent meals and the evening conversation with other guests. Dorothy... More

Crooked Creek Guide Service, Cabins and RV Park is a priced-right, well run, rustic, no frills place. If you are looking for fresh flowers on your pillow and fine wine with dinner you will not be happy here but if your idea of a great time is rising at 3:00 AM to get on the water by dawn, starting the...

What a perfect place to stay and see what Alaska has to offer. My wife, two girls and I started visiting Crooked Creek and Dorothy, affectionately none by all as, Auntie Dorothy when the girls were 8 and 9. This has been our third trip back and just as memorable as the first. The lodge is located very central to... More
