Stayed at RW's for a week at the end of June to early July. The property is well maintained, clean, and accommodating. The room was spacious and the housekeeping staff came daily to empty trash and tidy up a bit. The king salmon fishing with a guide was non-productive. We did however, see fish being caught in several areas of... More

Since one of the ladies in our group is handicapped, we rented unit number 7, which is fully ADA compliant. The unit had a full kitchen and a view of the Kenai River from our front porch. Daily maid service was excellent. The fish processing and packaging is excellent. Since only one of us fished, RW made arrangements to suit... More

The facility was really nice. It was clean and well maintained. The fishing trips were spectacular and the guides were knowledgeable. We took two halibut trips to Homer. You definitely need to have a vehicle or you can't get to the halibut fishing or the fly-out trips. We would go again.

If the three main things you are looking at for an Alaska trip is fishing, location & lodging this might be a good choice. I stayed here in August 2013 with my elderly father and the accommodations were clean & comfortable and has free wifi. Restaurants & full scale grocery store were close so that made it easy to outfit... More

But this is a no frills resort its all about the fishing!! let me repeat fishing! RW's boats are super clean and well taken care of. The rooms are... More

I purchased a trip here through a fundraising auction and was a little skeptical at first because of some of the reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We arrived late on a Saturday evening and were greeted with a smile by (Deanna) and told we were not scheduled to fish for the next day and that was... More

Checked in on a Saturday and was told that King Salmon fishing was closed on the river indefinitely last Thursday. Off to a bad start!!! The good. The property is really nice and the condos are great. Very clean and spacious. The entire property is very well maintained and beautiful. They take good care of your fish and are a... More

hmmm it's a very *flexible* place i guess. The time of departure was confirmed one day before. And somehow i thought the day trip for silver salmon charter is deep ocean trip. Guess not. Basically we only spent 5 hours on two spots on the river, and the spots are just sorta part of the resort. But it costs 220... More

No matter how hard they try, you can't catch when there are no fish in the Kenia River. Upper Kenia was closed and they just opened lower Kenia the day we got there. From what we saw....or didn't see...very, very few are catching fish. The Russian River "combat fishing" grounds were bare. Every year, the numbers are diminishing. I realize... More

My sister and I went up to RW's. Our guide Nate was the best. We were a bit early for the first run of Kings. But that is why it is called fishing not catching. But we still brought in two Kings and had the best time in the boat. Nate not only meet us with a smile he kept... More
