Amazing experience! Any real fishermen would absolutely love this lodge and river. That being said, if you want 5 star room and a wine list at dinner you might want to try the Orvis Lodge down the river for 4 times the price. If you want to go to a FISHING CAMP/LODGE and have a great time this I'd the place for you. Very comfortable cabins. Great dinner homestyle dinners, and the guides even made a delicious shore lunch most days. All the guides full time year round guides and are extremely knowledgeable. They focus on fly fishing but also are very knowledgeable about spin fishing. Pairing that with being able to boat to Brooks Camp and the best trophy rainbow trout fishing in the world. Makes this the perfect Alaskan lodge.

What an amazing experience. The Owners and operators and team of the Naknek Fish Camp are all about hospitality and making sure they take great care of their guests. It is not a fancy resort and I appreciated that. Everyone was very real and kind. They catered to each and every guest in a way that made us all feel apart of the camp and really a part of the family. I hope to have an opportunity to visit them again. I loved that there was no cell service and no internet. It made the dining experiences very warm and friendly and I met a lot of great folks in the process:) thank you all!!!!

I’ve been to Naknek River Camp for 3 stays in 3 consecutive years. The first year was in mid July for the sockeye run. The next two years for Labor Day week, the start of really big rainbow trout season. Naknek River Camp delivers the greatest fishing experience for well under $5,000 perhaps on earth when you factor in the incomparable bear viewing. There are fancier camps on the same river at twice the price but they fish the exact same spots. Plus they have to fly into the incomparable Brooks Camp and perhaps the most beautiful spot in Katmai, Margot Creek. These are both accessible from Naknek by a very scenic boat ride. I’m a snobby lawyer and a picky eater. I’m not going to lie and say I wouldn’t rather have been at Rapids Camp or Crystal Creek eating elk or ostrich at dinner time. But, I paid $3,000 instead of $10,000 and enjoyed the best fishing of my life. The food was fine. Because the Camp does get mail, you can ship in anything that might make you more comfortable. I shipped in wine and high quality granola/beef jerky. The guides are excellent, the fishing is ridiculous and the beds are comfortable. It’s the best fishing trip possible for a great price. There are rivers that you can’t help but hook a feisty rainbow (Margot) or char (Contact/Ugashik) nearly each cast if your fly is correct. The rainbows on Moraine Creek are like submarines in shallow water. Damn, I can’t wait to return!

Great food, great guides, great fishing. Very nice Lodge, although we were in the Fox Cabin right next door. Friendly service, a lot of good advice. They pack lunch for your fishing trips. Caught King Salmon, Sockeye, Jumbo Rainbows and Arctic Char. Relaxing and exciting at the same time. Will return.

I spent a week at Naknek River Camp. It is a fishing camp and not a romantic getaway for you and your honey. That is not wat they advertise. Great place if you are interested in fishing only. Cabin: Was clean. My cabin had a chemical toilet. Some cabins have full facilities. The bathhouse was clean and shower water was warm. We were welcomed at the airport by Jim, the owner. Though out the week, I felt like family. Food: Every offering was first class home cooking. Fishing: My main guide was Mike. I spent the first 2 days at another lodge and caught all the species on bucket list except a silver. We spent 2 days throwing at the shore. My fishing partner manage to land 2 silvers in 2 days. My only silver hook up ended with a broken line. If you are new to fly-fishing, If you are new to fly-fishing. I would highly recommend Mike. The man has infinite patients with a neophyte like me. I learned a lot from him. Over all, a great week of fishing for the price.
