Clean, quiet, professional and friendly staff, nice interior design. Walking distance to historic copper mines, walking distance to hiking tour offices. Need bush-plane to get to the town. Would definitely return there !

The cabins are very clean and new. On the large side. Well appointed with coffee maker and microwave. Great place to enjoy outdoors around Palmer. The Helicopter tour to the glaciers and visit to the Dog sleds is not describable. We took my granddaughters who rode in the sleds and met the dogs...what an experience. Heli pilots were very experienced... More

This relaxing retreat is situated at the end of a 10 mile road. This was truly a lovely experience. These facilities only have separate lodging cabins for each family. Our cabin had a king bed with a fridge, coffee maker and electric tea kettle. Our cabin was nicely decorated, comfortable and quiet. We did not take advantage of any special... More

We took the helicopter/dogsled tour. We are a family of four. We drove up from Anchorage. We chose this particular tour since they could accommodate all four of us on one helicopter. it is about an hour drive from Anchorage. The day was gloomy, and the staff contacted us by phone to warn us that we might not be able... More

Unfortunately, we did not stay at the Knik River Lodge. But after seeing how beautiful its setting was, we wish we had! We did, however, do their glacier dog sledding tour. It was as wonderful as expected! It was a bucket-list thing for me to take my 80 year old father dog sledding in Alaska. This was our third attempt!... More

The Lodge is at the end of the Knikriverroad and is situated at a beautiful spot. The nice and cozy lodges are surrounded by snowcovered mountaintops and you can see the Knik River down the valley. When you drive up there's a good possibility to spot moose! Watch out because they could be walking on the road. The cabin we... More

Definitely going back!! My husband and myself planned an Alaskan vacation for my 30th birthday. After finding the Knik River Lodge while doing research, it definitely exceeded our expectations! It's located in the most perfect isolated location near Palmer, AK. Only an hour from Anchorage, AK and 25 minutes from Palmer, AK. Giving you that Alaskan feel of a log... More

When we first thought about Knik River Lodge of course I viewed the Trip advisor comments, and as a result of some I was sceptical. I contacted the Lodge by phone and spoke to Peter the Owner Manager as we really wanted to go on a helicopter and do a dog sled ride. Peter assured me that it would be... More

I recently led a weekend photo workshop at the Knik River Lodge, and the location was wonderful- you're right at the doorstep of the Chugach Mountains, overlooking the massive Knik River gravel bar. The cabin layout was ideal for all of my guests, plus they're cozy and comfortable, and have just the right amenities so as to be both rustic... More

My hubby and I were given a groupon gift certificate to stay at the Knik River Lodge. We are locals (we live in Wasilla) and we figured it would be fun to head out there without knowing what to really expect. We arrived later in the afternoon and got settled in our cabin. They asked up what time we wanted... More
