My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the King Salmondeaux Lodge. The Riverside Cabin exceeded our expectation. It was exceptionally clean, had a comfortable bed and pillows and the cabin was stocked with everything we needed - and the view of the Kenai River from the deck is amazing. The lodge grounds, pavilion and bon fire areas, grills…were all well-kept and clean. The On-Site Managers, Oakley and Brian, greeted us upon our arrival, and Brian and Peggy went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, had everything we needed, and they answered the many questions we had about the area. Brian demonstrated the technique for catching Sockeye (my first time) and it was not long before the first fish was hooked. We highly recommend the King Salmondeaux Lodge and look forward to our next stay in August!

Clean and quiet and Leslie will take such good care of you. She's lovely and understanding. Lots of fun and I would stay there again. The "black out" shades could be a bit darker and completely block out the light in the bottom bedroom for the summer, but the forest green was not too bad! So more black out shades all around, especially if sleeping in the loft, and I could see that being a better night's sleep for those of us in the lower 48. ;) Also, lots of great wildlife including moose and bald eagles, so have the camera ready!

Our visit to the Lodge was excellent! Leslie and Seth took great care of us, and we enjoyed walking out the door, grabbing a rod, and fishing whenever we felt like it. Very well outfitted. The cabin was perfect for our family of four plus grandparents. We especially liked the outdoor pavilion for grilling and eating together. It was very convenient to run into Soldotna as needed, but felt very secluded.

Loved it. The property was beautiful and peaceful. The hosts were nice and helpful. The kenai river was a few steps away. Made my anniversary even more special. Cant get any better then that. Will definitely go back if we get a chance.

This was my first time here. Leslie was GREAT providing excellent hospitality and service for activities. My boys used the extra Alaskan summer sunlight to play badminton, frisbee and toss the bean bags around which were all provided by the lodge. Of course there were fishing poles and all the gear available for use as well for no additional fee. They even have staff to process the fish! We've made some great memories grilling freshly caught fish and eating outside on the picnic tables. The view from the upstairs bedroom looking at the Kenai River is amazing! I loved seeing eagles soaring over the Kenai River while sitting in bed.

In June 2018 my Dad and I made our second visit to King Salmondeaux Lodge. This year was even better - we were joined by some friends and took advantage of renting one of the very large Deluxe Cabins. The stay was fantastic. First off, the Deluxe cabins worked great for two families - each level with two bedrooms (each bedroom has a queen bed and a set of bunk beds) and a bathroom with a shower. The lower level also has a full sized kitchen with full-sized appliances, a large kitchen table and a nice large sofa. The kitchen was fully equipped with pots, pans, cutting boards, toaster, microwave, coffee pot, dish towels, cabinets full of odd-and-ends seasonings and basics (flour, etc), paper towels, and more. The shower situation is great for a large group - two showers with on-demand hot water heaters means nobody gets a cold shower! The location of King Salmondeaux can't be beat - right on the banks of the Kenai river, a couple of staircases heading down to the bank for "steps from your door," bank Sockeye fishing. The lodge is quiet, peaceful, and the location seems remote when you are there, but is only a short drive into town to gather necessities or head out for dinner. The staff at the lodge are also phenomenal. The couple that manages the Lodge, Leslie and Seth, are the perfect hosts, being attentive, accommodating, and just really friendly people! Seth is a wealth of fishing knowledge, helping guests get set up with sockeye fishing rods (many high quality setups are provided for lodge guests) as well as hip waders, rubber boots, nets, "fish bonkers," stringers, and sage advice from his years of experience. Leslie makes sure that everything runs smoothly, from managing the staff and making sure the guests are well taken care of. Maddi is in charge of cleaning and packaging your fish catch, and she does a fantastic job making sure your fish is cleaned, vacuum sealed, and packaged up when your time at the lodge is (sadly) over. She even came in to the lodge one evening on her day off to be sure that our freshly caught fish was process and frozen as soon as we brought it to the lodge - truly going above and beyond! Everyone at the lodge is extremely focused on making sure the guests have everything they need for a seamless Alaskan experience, from coolers provided at each cabin, to fresh ice being constantly available to fill your coolers before heading off to catch fish. The lodge are also experts on setting up fishing trips for salmon, halibut, and even fly-out trips to remote places for pristine fishing without another soul in sight. King Salmondeaux is a full-service, five-star fishing lodge with great people that really make the difference. This past year was our third time to the Kenai Peninsula fishing, and our second year in a row staying at King Salmondeaux. On our future trips we will undoubtedly make this our lodge of choice! If you are looking for a lodge that is impeccably clean, well-maintained, modern, has ideal location, is family friendly, is run by true professionals who are incredibly hospitable, look no further than King Salmondeaux!

A group of us stayed at the King Salmondeaux Lodge for five nights and 6 days, they scheduled fishing trips on the Kenai and Kasilof rivers a halibut trip and a fly out fishing trip. All were scheduled and choreographed with out a glitch. The lodge is on the banks of the Kenai with great views and fish ability. The folks managing the lodge were friendly and helpful. The trip felt like staying with long time good friends. The buildings are new and clean with the rustic camp styling with all the conveniences. Great fishing trip and adventure. Look forward to returning again. Ryan N

The King Salmondeaux Lodge worked out perfectly for 4 fishermen on vacatiion in Alaska. The site, beautifully situated on the banks of the Kenai river, was exactly what we wanted, a place where we could arise early, light off the coffee pot, microwave some breakfast sandwiches and head out to fish. A couple of days when we limited out early, we were able to nab a red or 2 from the bank in front of our cabin. Brian did a fine job packaging and freezing our catch and having it boxed and waiting for us by 7:00AM bail-out day. . Tip:There was a big, off season, price break August 15th and later.

Just returned from our first trip to Alaska. 8 adults spent 4 nights in large cabin on the Kenai River. Leslie scheduled two charters - halibut for 4 people and king salmon for the other 4. Both trips a great success. After, we fished for sockeye in the river. Lots of activities around the lodge in addition to fishing. Not sure we adjusted to the long daylight hours, ending up having supper at 11:00pm. Young guys on our trip didn't want to leave. Lodge provided fish cleaning and shipping service. Highly recommend for family or large groups. Look forward to returning again.
