TripAdvisor Rating


This remote lodge on the Upper Kenai River is all about the classic Alaska wilderness experience. The 16 rustic log cabins are simple, but comfortable, and will have you feeling like an early pioneer, only with electricity and indoor plumbing. Each cabin sleeps four people, so a bigger family might want to book two cabins. There is no TV or internet. You won’t need it with the stunning scenery and rushing river right outside your cabin door, though. The all-inclusive rates include all of your meals. There’s a huge breakfast buffet each morning, a packed lunch for your daily excursions, and a gourmet, family-style dinner waiting at the lodge when you return each night.

The Kenai Riverside Lodge is near the town of Cooper Landing, on the shore of Kenai Lake in the middle of the peninsula. It’s two hours south of Anchorage, but the lodge’s free shuttle makes it effortless to get there. The lodge offers customizable packages for your daily activities. First and foremost, you’re on the banks of one of the greatest sports fishing rivers in Alaska. Beyond that, your family can go rafting on the Russian River, hiking in the Chugach National Forest, or deep sea fishing in nearby Seward. Back at the lodge, you can relax on the deck, play horseshoes, and warm up in the wood-fired sauna. With all that the Kenai Riverside Lodge has to offer, there’s no reason to go anywhere else for a wonderful family adventure in Alaska.

Salmon Fishing and River Rafting

by BillyKmd

This is a busy lodge in Salmon Season...guided fishing, fish cleaned, frozen, packed and shipped. Cabins a bit cramped, but clean and serviceable. Comfortable lodge with good food, happy hour daily with nice snacks. We went rafting down the Kenai River, very pleasant.

Always dreamed of an Alaska salmon fishing trip with my Son. Could not have picked a better overall experience - outstanding staff, excellent property, great food, top notch equipment and beyond incredible fishing.
