We spent 3 days at the Lodge in late August-probably a little late in the season but that was OK - the Lodge grounds are amazing in that it was a happening place in the past. The current owners are in the process of renovating and maintaining all the buildings--a daunting task as there are quite a few. They do need some help with meals as there are a lot of mouths to feed for one person in the kitchen but they did a great job.Great Experience.

This was the tail end of our 10 day Alaska family vacation. It was our follow-up adventure following a cruise. I had been many times to AK in the '90s - But I had apparently never seen it the way God intended, This is an amazing place, we had an awesome time. The family who runs it made us feel like one of their own, our son had a blast exploring and playing with the kids. We hiked, we napped by roaring fires, we had sumptuous meals, we awed at the beautiful scenery, watching the river go by, enjoyed the quiet.I could write a book here about how great it was and we've spent a lot of time talking about going back. We should have stayed longer. The cabin we stayed in was cozy, well appointed, but with the lodge, the wilderness, the river, we hardly were there except to sleep. Bathroom/shower were also well appointed, clean and plenty water pressure. If you are going to Alaska, particularly Denali, skip the big hotel/resorts, get away from the crowds and go to Wood River Lodge. It is absolutely worth the extra travel. (and the Fly Denali people were awesome too BTW) If you want to really see Alaska, and experience Alaskan hospitality go to Wood River Lodge.

We (family with 2 kids and a dog) spent 3 days in the lodge. Before that we did many other activities (helicopter tour, dog sledding on a glacier, boat tour between icebergs, safari in the tundra) but the stay in this lodge will be the most memorable. The conditions are very nice (not luxury but very clean and comfortable cabins), the food is good, and there is a bar with pretty good choices of drinks. The prices are very reasonable for such a remote place. The only way to get there is by a small plane and you will see amazing views while flying to the lodge.

This place is very relaxing and has a lot of hiking trails and lakes to see the amazing scenery. Food is very good. Chris and Amy are the best and will do what they can to make you comfortable and enjoy your visit. Didn't want to leave.

This was my 7th trip to Alaska, and I've seen a lot of places, and Wood River Lodge is one of the most magnificent experiences I've had. I highly recommend going there. Host family that runs the place is great, location is really beautiful and you feel completely isolated from the rest of the world. The only way to get there is to take a bush place, and owners can help you with that. Great place to go with your partner, family or friends.
