I gave the lodge 5 stars because 10 was not an option. I have traveled to the lodge twice now and my second trip was even better than the first. I can not say enough about the staff at the lodge, spending time at the Wilderness Place Lodge is like going to the most wonderful resort in the middle of... More

This is our second trip to WPL and we plan to return many more times. The lodge and staff are excellent and the fishing for silvers and chum unbelievable. Lake Creek is very remote and not at all crowded if you're willing to walk a bit. Jason and his staff are wonderful

To be honest, words cannot describe the experience we had at Wilderness Place Lodge (WPL), but still I'll give it a shot: WPL is quite frankly amazing! First of all, the fishing is incredible. For instance, during our first full day at the lodge, we – three anglers in total – caught about 40 salmon, both Chum, Sockeye, Pink and... More

Every year when we leave we say we have to do something different next year - then we come back to WPL! What does that tell you? Wilderness Place Lodge is the ultimate salmon fishing experience, with some spirted, lively rainbow trout thrown in for a little diversion. We met our guide Greg briefly last year and were so pleased... More

Four days at The Wilderness Place Lodge - an absolute and complete joy ! The experience was to give my grandson his first "big adventure" for his 7th birthday and allow for one-on-one time with his dad, his grandfather and his uncle and a "guys only week". The lodge and their staff exceeded our expectations by providing not only great... More

My son and I just returned from WPL. Words alone can’t describe the level of satisfaction we both had with this lodge. A few do come to mind however – IMPECCABLE SERVICE from every person working at the lodge, AWESOME FOOD including a few cold beverages, OUTSTANDING PROPERTY…the cabin, lodge and firepit to hang out for some good conversation, laughs,...

Where to start. In a nutshell, every aspect of our fishing experience could have not been any better. The ENTIRE staff is there to accommodate to whatever your heart desires. As soon as we landed (on water) we were greeted with such a positive and friendly guide. You can tell they enjoy what they do. Take a short boat ride... More

In short…this trip was amazing! When I started planning a trip to Alaska for my husband and I, the only thing on his list was salmon fishing. We did a ton of research on various fishing spots and lodges before we settled on Wilderness Place Lodge and I am so glad that we did!! The property is beautiful, the food... More

Just returned from 3 fantastic days of fishing. My husband and I learned to fish, while our angler grandson hooked some beauties thanks to our wonderful guide Max. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves thanks to the setting, the hospitality of everyone on staff, plus the delicious food and comfortable cabin. We'll be re-hashing this trip of our great memories for years... More

Short Version: We just spent 4 days/4 nights at WPL and the fishing was great! We caught fish everyday - seven different species in total. Our guide, Andrew, was amazing. He put us right on the fish wherever he took us and knew exactly what to use and how to fish it. The staff was unbelievable, catering to every desire... More
