As told in other reviews, you can stay in the new lodge (about 200 yards from boat ramp check in lodge). What's good about the lodge if you stay there vs cabins is you walk downstairs to breakfast in the morning, or coffee anytime. Drawback is the rooms facing the fire pit. At night, some guest sit around the fire late and you can hear them. Don't miss the fire pit. This is Alaska so if you see people at the fire pit - join them. If there are 3-5 of you, then get one of the cabins. The cabins have their own deck, BBQ,Freezer, mini kitchen (microwave, refer, sink, coffee maker). 1st floor has separate bedroom, small open area with table, couch, tv and bathroom/shower; 4 single beds upstairs. They come thru each day and clean/make beds. Donnie and his family (including grandma & kids) run a great lodge. You can get your fishing license from him; he'll set up a Halibut charter; arrange with river guides to take you out from the cabin/lodge (everything is "on" the river) for fishing on the Kenia for Salmon. If you know the river and how to operate boat, you can rent one of his rental boats. If you take a Taxi from the Kenai Airport it's about a $20-30 ride. He also has great deck area with fish cleaning table. He has wood paths between lodge & cabins so its easy walking from parking area and lodge (for breakfast). Ask him and for a few extra dollars he may fix you a bag lunch to take out the next day for fishing. Plan in advance. He fills up fast - a testament to how great a facility they have.
