Get a taste of the Alaskan wilderness at this gorgeous lodge and cabins near the Kenai River. They offer several family-friendly accommodations, including a three-bedroom suite in the main cabin that can sleep up to five people. A smaller family might want to book the lodge’s Black Bear cabin, which can sleep four people on four twin beds. The cabins are quite simple, but comfortable, with a small refrigerator, beds, dresser and bathroom. Every cabin has a covered porch facing a large outdoor fire pit gazebo, where drinks and appetizers are available nightly. Also within a few steps of your cabin is the dining yurt. Yes, all meals are served family-style in a yurt. All-inclusive packages cover your breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks, dessert and fresh-baked bread, prepared by a full-time gourmet chef.

The Alaska Hooksetters Lodge sits on a high ridge overlooking the river valley. You can be on the water and fishing for salmon within minutes. Fishing and sightseeing packages are fun and flexible, and can include halibut fishing on Cook Inlet, trout fishing on a mountain lake, or bear viewing in Katmai National Park. Lodge owners handle all the planning and provide all the gear. You’ll be in good hands with experienced guides, whichever daily adventure you choose.

Amazing memories!

by Tracie00

My dad, Kipp, my uncle, David, and I just returned from an amazing trip at Hooksetters with Russell Fishing. Out of 5 stars, I'd give them a 10! They more than exceeded our expectations of our first trip to Alaska fishing. We've done some guided fishing trips before and the guides with Hooksetters are top notch! They're friendly, knowledgeable, and put you right on the fish. We limited out almost every day and even if we didn't, we had an outstanding day fishing and talking with the guides - learning about the local area and ecology. I'd be remiss without talking about the food - oh gosh! I'm a big foodie and I planned on having standard fare for dinner each night. I was so wrong! Every night we had a meal I could have easily spent lots of $$$ on in a high-quality restaurant. Halibut, salmon, seafood linguine, tenderloin - with the best desserts also. Including strawberry-rhubarb crisp, my dad's favorite. The highlight of the evening, though, was sitting around the campfire sharing fishing stories with Glenn and all the other guests. We also saw a lot of animals including an almost nightly walk-through of Moose. I thought this was a once in a lifetime trip - but now we are already planning another visit back to Hooksetters. Once is just not enough!
