It seems like driving nowhere... even the car navigation map is speechless... and then you arrive to a semi paradise. So calm. So hugging. Just like being at home but so far from yours. Great ace. Wonderful view. Lovely welcome. Friendly guys. And such a great restaurant. Alaska is once in a life time trip. So don't miss knik river... More

The Knik river lodge has a magnificent location near Chugach park. The cabins are not very large however. And when the weather is not good it can be very wet and cold. Dinner is served in a Mongolian style tent. Dinner is very good. Breakfast is served at the cabin. It is simple and not very special.

My wife and I finished our tour of Alaska at this venue; absolutely wonderful. Incredible Scenery surrounds the site; mountains and river. It is somewhat remote (20 miles from Palmer) but that just adds to its charm. The cabins are detached; so no noisy neighbours; and very comfortable. We had a large kingsize bed. The restaurant is a tent (Yete... More

I don't know where to begin when writing this review. There are so many things to write about. First, I was staying in Seward and couldn't find a place to stay that I liked for the next night. I found the Knik River Lodge on trip advisor and phoned about 9 PM, hoping that maybe they'd have a vacancy. Peter,... More

My wife and I spent two nights at Knik River Lodge on a recent trip to Alaska and were very happy with our stay there. The cabins are very clean and nice and were supplied with everything we needed. The setting is a quiet, beautiful river valley surrounded by mountains. The staff is friendly and helpful. We also took the... More

My best friend and I just recently came back from a week long stay. The lodge was quaint and the staff was fabulous! Not to mention, a couple of visits to the Yurt was pretty cool, the food was awesome! Arthur made our dining experience wonderful. He also gave us great tips about what to see at the Alaska State...

We stayed at Knik River Lodge from 14-16 August, 2014. The cabins were a dream come true. They are very cosy and clean with a great shower! The view was incredible, right across from the mountains. Wow! The cabins had their own veranda so you could sip your coffee / tea and be amazed by the view. The restaurant was... More

We can't say enough nice things about these cabins. They are quite a distance from the city and perfect little cabins with built-in picnic tables on the porches to enjoy the scenery. Breakfast was in a basket and included things such as yogurt, muffins, OJ, and toast. Yes, a yurt is a tent, but dinner in the yurt was divine!The... More

We were in Alaska for the third time and I had the best tour ever at this lodge! We enjoyed the sweet cabins, dinner in the yurt and the dark West Coast coffee, finally a good cup of coffee! All of this was wonderful but the helicopter ride out to Lake George to kayak with the icebergs was the trip... More
