We had groupon here with heli ride, the room was very nice, clean and new, I love their little balcony with dinning table outside! Great towels, bed and bedding, all very nice. The only thing is the on site dinning, it was very busy with only one waiter. He didn't want us to sit outside and also told us the... More

While the cabin was nice and the staff friendly and helpful, I found the following to be very lacking: 1. No advance notice of no wifi or cable. 2. Breakfast is only a small continental tray brought to your cabin. No selection is available. 3. On arrival, I was arbitrarily told that my 11:30 dog sled trip was moved to... More

We only stayed one night in Knik River Lodge, at the end of the road near Palmer. Nice cabins, could use a little landscaping instead of just gravel. 21 little cabins altogether. Pretty view of the mountains across the river. Nice inside, with fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker. Dinner in the yurt was very good, but they had only... More

Although it is 'off the grid' Knik River Lodge has all the luxuries of modern convenience (except wifi and cable, but enjoy the view instead). We had a wonderful and filling dinner at the yurt (make reservations) which included king salmon, breaded pork, French onion soup, balsamic bacon salad, and dessert of creme brûlée or chocolate mousse with berries. We... More

Our cabin was very clean, comfortable and nice, smelled like Pine. There was a TV in the room and you could borrow DVDs from the main office. While we stayed there 2 nights we only ate on property the first night. The food was VERY good but pricey and they did run out of things towards closing.

Knik River Lodge is nice. The cabin we stayed in was new in June 2015. Cabins have a mini-fridge and microwave, and Keurig machine. The cabins have wood or faux-wood flooring. The view from the front porch is amazing. There are helicopters that take off several times in the morning (but not before 8 AM) so if you like to... More

The lodge has several specials advertised in different places, we chose a Groupon for two nights, nightly dining credit and helicopter ride. When booking on the website, they ask you to pick two different dates for arrival. Our first choice in June was unavailable, so we were given our second choice in July. You are also asked to choose a... More

Awesome and clean lodges that had the fragrance of being in the woods! The helicopter to Knik Glacier was the most memorable and exciting trip of our entire 2 weeks of travel in Alaska! The Ididarod team there was gracious but "mushing" on top of the world was breath taking!! Stunning mountain peaks and gorgeous skies! We also brought home... More

This charming group of cabins is at the end of a 10+ mile road off the main highway. There are no other services around. We arrived after the time to order in-room breakfast for the following morning and found out that the nearest restaurant is 25 miles away in Palmer. Fortunately, we had scheduled the Helicopter/Dog sled tour at 11:00... More
