What an excellent experience! When COVID cancelled our wedding, we were looking for something adventurous to do during the time we’d already taken off. We got ahold of Cory and he helped us plan the ultimate Alaskan adventure! From the staff, to the food, to the fishing, we had the most wonderful time! We are definitely hoping to return in the near future and would recommend this to anyone. This trip was so much more than your normal Alaskan fishing trip!

This is our second visit to the Lodge. We returned because of the outstanding fishing, in camp staff and guides. This is a family friendly place to visit with beautiful scenery. The accommodations are outstanding! The best fly fishing we have ever experienced. We are planning another trip very soon.

While this was my first time to Alaska for a fishing trip, it was not my first time with an outfitter for hunting and/or fishing. This lodge was truly first class from start to finish. The communication (especially during these tough Covid times) was perfect. We knew what to expect from landing in Anchorage, to flying out on Rust's (another first class operation) to landing at the lodge. Out guide, Jarod, busted his butt for my brother and myself. He is truly a keeper for you guys! While fishing was a little slow for the Pink and Sockeye that we hoped to target we never felt cheated in out trip. That is why they call it fishing. We had beautiful weather, great lodging and fantastic food. Chef Nicole does it up right. I could go on and on, but just know that I hope to be back soon as there are not many places out there that get a 5 star from me.

The Wilderness Place Lodge is an ideal Alaska experience. We just completed a fantastic 3-day stay. The members of the Wilderness Place Lodge provided exceptional service. Our experienced and professional fishing guides (Wyatt and Trenton) brought us to excellent spots, set us up with ideal tackle, and provided sound advice helping us catch plenty of fish. Most important, our guides did a great job ensuring our 2 daughters (ages 8 and 10) had fun and caught fish. The cabins were perfect: comfortable beds, great windows (for views and cool breezes), nice little wood stoves (if needed), and warm water with excellent pressure to get cleaned up after a long day fishing. Meals were delicious; especially considering you're at a pretty remote fishing lodge. And it turns out this isn't an accident because most of the kitchen team (under Head Chef Nicole) had true culinary training. Colleen and "Chef Dave" manage a smooth operation and were quickly on top of any special requests (i.e., dietary, schedule, etc.). Finally, our daughters had a blast enjoying time with Griff (The Wilderness Place Lodge dog). The Wilderness Place Lodge is a great way to see some of Alaska, catch fish, and create memories!
