We had such an amazing time last year that we just HAD to come back this year! King season did not disappoint with 40+ pound fish on back to back days. The lodge and service is impeccable, the staff is amazing, the food is delicious, and the guides are the best on the river! They treat you like family and...

Alisa, Chase: Seriously, what else can we say? You guys rock. Thanks for bringing it and gracing us with some southern charm and much humor. Love the personalities that congregate at this place, but you guys took it to a new level. We're grateful for your return trip and for sharing your experience with everyone. We miss you much and...

Top notch. Fun adventure, great fishing, all made even better by the incredible staff. I would go every year if I was able to find more time in my schedule. I would highly recommend the Wilderness Place Lodge if anyone is thinking of an Alaskan fishing trip.

Our fishing experience was a belated birthday present for my experienced fisherman husband. That said, I wanted to learn to fly fish. I don't know how they did this, but they gave us the most amazing fishing guide I could ever imagine. Greg, became my was my "fishing trainer." He was so patient! There weren't very many 60 year old...

I gave the lodge 5 stars because 10 was not an option. I have traveled to the lodge twice now and my second trip was even better than the first. I can not say enough about the staff at the lodge, spending time at the Wilderness Place Lodge is like going to the most wonderful resort in the middle of...

This is our second trip to WPL and we plan to return many more times. The lodge and staff are excellent and the fishing for silvers and chum unbelievable. Lake Creek is very remote and not at all crowded if you're willing to walk a bit. Jason and his staff are wonderful

To be honest, words cannot describe the experience we had at Wilderness Place Lodge (WPL), but still I'll give it a shot: WPL is quite frankly amazing! First of all, the fishing is incredible. For instance, during our first full day at the lodge, we – three anglers in total – caught about 40 salmon, both Chum, Sockeye, Pink and...

Every year when we leave we say we have to do something different next year - then we come back to WPL! What does that tell you? Wilderness Place Lodge is the ultimate salmon fishing experience, with some spirted, lively rainbow trout thrown in for a little diversion. We met our guide Greg briefly last year and were so pleased...

Four days at The Wilderness Place Lodge - an absolute and complete joy ! The experience was to give my grandson his first "big adventure" for his 7th birthday and allow for one-on-one time with his dad, his grandfather and his uncle and a "guys only week". The lodge and their staff exceeded our expectations by providing not only great...

My son and I just returned from WPL. Words alone can’t describe the level of satisfaction we both had with this lodge. A few do come to mind however – IMPECCABLE SERVICE from every person working at the lodge, AWESOME FOOD including a few cold beverages, OUTSTANDING PROPERTY…the cabin, lodge and firepit to hang out for some good conversation, laughs,...

Where to start. In a nutshell, every aspect of our fishing experience could have not been any better. The ENTIRE staff is there to accommodate to whatever your heart desires. As soon as we landed (on water) we were greeted with such a positive and friendly guide. You can tell they enjoy what they do. Take a short boat ride...
