We stayed at Big K for 4 days on a fishing trip at Umpqua River. We have fished in Mexico and Alaska, and this trip is just as good - even better than Alaska since we caught King Salmons. My husband and his friend did great on both days they fished, and took home about 150 lbs of salmon. Big... More

We did not actually stay at Big K this time, as our travel plans changed. However, we are writing this review to let travelers know about the exceptional customer service on the reservations making, and reservations canceling side of choosing a place to stay. We can't say enough great things about how easy and informative making a reservation was. Our... More

We had similar experience as Cid G from Portland, lead fishing guide TH was sarcastic and rude to our group a year ago. We will not return until he is gone! Previous years trips with brother old guides were great. Rest of lodge and restaurant was fine.Trout pond was fun.

Top of the line fishing resort as far as we are concerned. Everyone here is friendly, helpful, and happy. Big K is a multi-generational ranch in a beautiful location, even in the rain! Bass galore on the Umpqua River plus impressive chinook salmon. Ours were cleaned by our guide right on the drift boat and frozen by one of the... More

We went to Big K as a family outing; with intentions to fish, explore and hit the coast. We were taken with the view and beauty. Unfortunately, we were under constant scrutiny by the staff and the only other guest complained about our kids and my boyfriends cigar smoke. Our meal was slow and over-priced, but good. I suppose the... More

The Big K is located in a beautiful part of Oregon with the pleasant small town of Elkton near by. It is close to the Oregon coast and not too far from Eugene. The picturesque landscape makes a perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony as well as a great reception! Kathy and her crew have everything worked and are experts.... More

My husband is an avid fly fisherman and I enjoy plein air painting. The big K is well suited to satisfy both of our needs. A few hours drive from Portland, and we had a very pleasant weekend.
