We are the closest lodging near the confluence of two world-class salmon streams - the Kenai River and the Russian River.

Rustic accommodations!!!!! Traveling with a group of 7 beach campers from New York, we stayed at Gwin's Lodge for one night. We had a wonderful experience there, the cottages were very comfortable, especially the beds and the entire staff were very friendly and helpful. We stopped in the restaurant for a drink before dinner, the waitress Cassidy couldn't have been more delightful, even brought us baskets of pretzels. We again stopped there for lunch a few days later, very happy we did! The food was delicious and served quickly, again by Cassidy. If your passing through Cooper Landing, don't pass up for breakfast, lunch or dinner!! Great experience!!!

Chocked full of salmon and other seafood; a rich cream based chowder. Friendly staff and a bar on the other side.

We were on Cooper landing for two days and ate dinner at gwin's both days! The service was very friendly and considerate, and the food was pretty darn tasty for something fast. Not many healthy options, but I don't think that's gwins' intention. Stop here for some great burgers, some really yummy salmon chowder, or a hearty sandwich and you'll be glad you did :)

We rented the cabin with 2 bunk beds. All you need for a good nights sleep so you can start your day of fishing, hiking, kayaking or whatever adventure you have planned.
