I think the real prize here is the staff. Everyone is just super nice. Our guides were patient and had a good sense of humor. By mid-week the lodge had a family feel to it. The cabins were very clean and cozy. Pretty rustic - but comfortable. Some of best sleep I've had lately.

The lodge was a long walk away, with no transportation between locations. If I had my choice again, I might have paid more to go to the lodge across the river, more $ but more amenities. Great staff at the actual lodge although.

Thank you for giving us a try. Our RV Park property is located on the banks of the Upper Kenai River with a small section of river access, although each RV site does not have riverfront views. We hope the rest of your time in Alaska was wonderful.

Great location on the Kenai River. Clean cabins and quiet area. Great dining facility. The guides are polite, proficient and know their jobs. Fish are cleaned and vacuum packed and frozen and boxed for shipment or for air travel.

Hi Ron, This is Alaska Wildland Adventures responding. We weren't sure if you intended this question for an Anchorage hotel or us. We provide complimentary fish storage for guests who fish and stay with us at Kenai Riverside Lodge, and we can help provide a list of Anchorage hotels which offer fish storage if you're interested. Please let us know how we can help! Very best, AWA

"Bring enough cash for tips - I tipped a couple of the guides and needed more $ to leave the lodge staff - they are great!"
"All rooms are great surrounded by trees or facing the Kenai River."
"No river front cabins, either backing the river or forest setting all seemed excellent."
"This place is a small group of cottages on the Kenai River."
"All are very nice. Rustic, clean, porches with chairs, baths, etc. My husband says it is the nicest fishing cabin he's had."
