Just returned from our third trip to Crystal Creek Lodge. This is a first class experience. The fishing is incredible and the guides are the best you will find. Three planes dockside awaiting fly outs in the morning or you can spend the day on the Naknek river. The fish are cleaned, vacuum packed , and frozen after each trip...

The staff and owners of Crystal Creek Lodge are dedicated to addressing all the little details of your visit. From pick up to drop off, every need is attended to with professional class and with pleasure. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and affable. This is my second visit to the lodge and the majority of the guides are the same...

Look at the review. This place is incredible. They know how to do things right. I am already re-living the fishing and lodge highlights and looking forward to next year. This was my 10th trip to CCL and it keeps getting better. I feel like I am going back to camp each year and love it. Dan, Alex, Heather and...

It would be difficult to overstate how truly outstanding our week was at Crystal Creek Lodge. It was an extraordinary trip highlighted by a deeply professional and gracious team at the Lodge and world-class fishing excursions that will have you pinching yourself to make sure you haven't been transported to some Shangri-La summoned from the imagination of Roderick Haig-Brown or...

Many people attain a "speed bump" age and give consideration to their "Bucket List" items. Mine include spending time with my two best friends and sharing world-class experiences together. Look no further than Crystal Creek Lodge, (CCL). Once again (third time for me, tenth time for Tom) CCL provided a world-class Rainbow Trout and Silver Salmon fishing experience. I remain...

I can't say enough great things about Dan, Alex, Heather and the rest of the crew at Crystal Creek. We went for a wing shooting and fishing trip from Aug to Sept 2015. The fishing was great; on our first day we flew out for coho, and had all four limits in 45 min. We kept catching and releasing for...

As a child I grew up hearing Johnny Horton's song "North To Alaska" and watching the legendary western "The Far Country" with Jimmy Stewart. Needless to say I wanted to go to Alaska but had not idea what to expect. My expectations were a bit romanticised by culture and myth. To "cut to the chase," Crysal Creek Lodge delivers on...

We took our family of eight to the Crystal Creek Lodge where we had a fabulous time. The staff is so accommodating and comes up with wonderful adventures that interest people from 10 to 68. We flew to the Brooks River where we saw the bears trying to eat the salmon. We went beachcombing, we went fishing, and we flew...

We were able to see bears, walrus, caribou, seals, sea lions, whales, and a variety of birds on our visit. The lodge is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the guides and pilots were not only pros, but made our outings really fun. We didn't go to fish and we had a fantastic time! Sad to leave....

“There is only one King Bed I think. It is in the main lodge upstairs. Ask for this one! But bring eye shades for sleeping because it does not get dark until very late and some of the upper windows are not covered.”
