We wanted to visit Katmai National Park and finally settled with this lodge. We visited in July 2015 with my family and we are happy that we settled with Katmai Adventure Lodge. The staff are friendly and professional and everything went as planned. Brad the owner was very nice. I have been corresponding with him well before our July holidays... More

We stayed five nights in the logde, which was a great experience. We did a bear viewing trip and a day trip to the valley of 10 000 smokes. The cook was really fabulous. The rooms were sufficient. We booked by email contacting the boss of the lodge. The communication was very poor and at the end we had some... More

First off let me start off by saying the two guys who picked folks up at the airport and dropped them off etc (one from California and one from Pennsylvania) were extremely nice and helpful. Helped with luggage, took you where you needed to go and were very nice to talk with. Secondly our fishing guide, Juan, was great. We... More

Our son wanted to celebrate his 40th birthday by fishing for salmon in Alaska. We had been to Katmai Adventure Lodge four years ago for fishing, bear watching, & seeing the Valley of the 10,000 Smokes. We loved it then, & we loved it this year as well. The lodge has a variety of accommodations, but we chose the one... More

I had wanted to visit and fish Alaska for years. I know several people who had fished in various areas and after advice from them decided on a river location where I would not be dependent on flying out daily. KAL met my criteria in many ways - private room and bath, peak season for Silver salmon, personal guide, relatively... More

Alaska 2014 I have long dreamed of going salmon fishing in Alaska and found the Bristol Bay area in the Southwest is world famous for this. I also found there are several varieties of salmon which vary in size, quality and migrate on different rivers during different times of year. So I developed criteria for the trip: lodging with bedding... More

Our trip was a birthday gift to my wife to photograph bears, and wow did we see bears up close and personal. Our guides for bear viewing, Ted and... More

We spent 5 days here in July primarily for bear watching, but also spent a day fishing. A previous reviewer had it just right that feelings about this lodge depend on your expectations. If you want a 5-star Hilton Resort, this is not for you. If you are looking for a great vacation for either fishing or bear watching, set... More
