My husband & I loved everything about the Caribou Lodge! When you walk in the lodge it smells like grandmas been cooking all day long! Thanks Pam! When its time for a hike we got to see some of the most untouched land we have ever laid eyes on.
We saw 2 moose, plenty of bear & 1 big blonde grizzley! Not to mention the Eagles, hawks & the very large owls. Thanks Mike!
I personally didnt think this was roughing it at all. We normally sleep in a tent & have to dig a hole! So the Caribou Lodge for me was great! The cabins were well heated....not that we needed it, the bed spreads are very very warm & cozy. The showers room was also heated with a good supply of hot water. We coudln't get enough of the place. My husband & I went fishing on the back side of the lodge at the bever dams. He actually caught some fish on his fly rod! We have yet to meet better people than Mike & Pam. They provided both the entertainment and the hospitality that you wouldn't expect from people who live there lives "in the bush". We would reccomend the Caribou to anyone looking to get away from it all, relax, take in the Alaskan wilderness & beautiful surroundings. We miss it already & our wonderful new freinds Mike & Pam, we hope to see you someday soon....dont forget about the trip we talked about!!!
