Certificate of Excellence
Picture yourself on the deck of a beautiful cabin, pondering the serenity of the wilderness. Look for our resident moose or listen to the great horned owl in his favorite lookout tree on top of the hill. Knik River Lodge is remote enough to be true wilderness, yet just one hour by car from Anchorage. Perfectly situated for exploring Southcentral Alaska, we invite you to share our magical part of the world.

We did not have a problem being in touch and had a great stay. My guess would be a technology problem since they are fairly remote.
