We booked the "Russian House" through Drifters Lodge an adult family vacation. It had comfortable beds, perfectly outfitted kitchen, nice televisions, and everything else you could think of, PLUS a gorgeous view. The fire pit was our favorite place, stocked with abundant wood. We could fish right from shore if we wanted. This property has the extra surprise of having a wood burning sauna, and it was a very nice experience after fishing on the river all day. Chris is very hospitable, and had the sauna all fired up for us one night. All of the staff and the fishing guides do a great job. They go out of their way to answer any questions and help you out if needed.
Our fishing wasn't so productive as we would of liked, but we enjoyed the river. I would have liked the guides to have a motor for the part of the river they could of used them in. I highly recommend the float trip even if you don't fish, the scenery is gorgeous. We were only half hour to Seward and ocean fished there and had a blast, and fought and caught fish there. If you are a avid angler you will love the Russian House if you are bringing a small group. The drive to Cooper Landing from Anchorage is extremely scenic and will amaze you with it's natural beauty. Be sure to stop at Alyeska and take a half day to do the rain forest hike before or after your trip.....really spiritual, and an amazing part of Alaska you wouldn't expect to see! Cant wait to come back to Drifters for another family fishing trip. I hear August is good fishing too!
