Outstanding trout fishing, fall colors, great food, helpful staff, and comfortable cabins made for a wonderful mid-September trip. This is a very well-run operation that caters to diverse groups but my experience was limited to fishing the Kenai River, which was great, with lots of rainbow trout and Dolly Varden, and also a few coho salmon.

Thank you for staying with us, and we wish your time at the Riverside Lodge was longer. The majority of our guest cabins are reserved for multi-day programs offered through Alaska Wildland Adventures. Although we include breakfast with overnight stays, you are correct that we do not have a traditional restaurant on the property, and our dinner service is reserved...

We enjoyed our stay at Kenai Riverside Lodge. Staff was nice, location great. We also enjoyed two of their trips (fishing and rafting). Rafting wasn't too spectacular. Food wasn't top notch. Specifically, they never served salmon altough we were in sockeye salmon paradise! Recommendable nevertheless.

Thanks for visiting us. Although our chef staff incorporates salmon into various entrees, we strive to have a diverse menu for our family-style dinners served at the lodge. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation.

Where to start.... Great staff, great food, great location, great scenery and comfortable cabins. We went for a 2 night stay to fish. Dave was our fishing guide and was excellent. Fishing the Upper Kenai River was an experience. Definitely would do it again.
