My daughter and I just finished our 4 night stay and we could not be happier. So much to do including: fishing, otter, seal and eagle watching, hikes to view the bears, and time at the archery range and skeet shooting. All were truly enjoyable but it was the people there that really made the difference. Luke, our guide who... More

Tipping is not mandatory, but is a gift. If asked what the normal gratuity is, the American standard has been 10% for decades. If not otherwise specifically directed, the guides always received the bulk of any tips. More

Our party of 9 arrived on a Friday evening just in time to enjoy one of Brian's perfectly prepared meals, the selection and taste was second to none! The next morning, after another hearty meal prepared by Brian, we headed out on the boats with Luke and Garret. We have been to several establishments who were more than happy to... More

It is very hard for me not to give Afognak Wilderness Lodge five stars. However, certain events and issues can't be ignored, hence the four star rating. Let me explain, starting with the good. My husband, daughter and I spent four magical days at Afognak Wilderness Lodge, and I must admit it is one of the most enchanting destinations to... More

After a slow start in the competition against my two friends who already had several large ling cod and halibut in the boat, I finally hooked the big one! My first halibut, weighing in at a modest 100 pounds and with a fight that you can't imagine, you must experience it! After a twenty minute tug of war with this... More

I have had the good fortune of being able to visit Alaska many times due to the fact that my brother lives on the Kenai river. Needless to say I have enjoyed many great memories with my family and friends fishing the Kenai. This year two of my friends and I decided spend a couple days on the Kenai then... More

My husband and I have just returned from our two day stay at the Afognak Wilderness Lodge. I planned the stay at the end of our vacation in order to save the best for last. It was that and more…much more than we expected. After our trip down from Mt. McKinley and Denali via planes, trains, buses, taxis with shuffling... More

My family and I went for five days in August. We were ruined by the experience. Now nothing else compares to the beauty of the wilderness and the wildlife. The accomodations were excellent and the food superb. Luke, one of the guides and the son of the owner was well seasoned and willing to do any activity we had in... More

We had a great 4 nights here. The cozy cabin was better that I expected. Josh, "Mac" and Garrett were excellent guides and thoughtful in helping in every way. The food and homemade bread was a big hit...thanks for everything!! If you want to view wildlife, this is the place!!

I was here in July 2011 and was lucky enough to return for another 4 nights in mid May 2012. Truly, it felt like coming home. Weather was fabulous, new cook, same comfy room.
