TripAdvisor Rating


This huge, all-inclusive lodge sits on a high bluff overlooking the Klutina and Copper Rivers. It has 85 rooms and suites, but it fills up fast with cruise ship passengers traveling north on land excursions. Most of the rooms include two queen beds and room for a crib or rollaway, as well as a few basic amenities. Guests enjoy a free breakfast buffet in a two-level dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows. There are plenty of kid-friendly activities on the property, including horseshoes, shuffleboard and board games. Make sure you participate in the nightly flag ceremony honoring military veterans. Lunch and dinner are available in either the elegant Two Rivers restaurant or the more casual Whistle Stop Bar and Grill.

Located just off the Richardson Highway, 16 miles south of Glennallen, the Copper River Princess Lodge is designed to be your starting point for all that the area has to offer. The lodge offers a wide range of guided wilderness excursions that you can customize as you wish. Ride on a dog sled, take a rafting trip down the Gulkana River, or visit the old mining ghost town of Kennecott. The lodge grounds have several walking trails, and you can connect to the scenic Klutina Lake Trail in just minutes. With so much to see and do, the Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge is the ideal family destination in this part of Alaska.

Clean and comfortable

by 25beaver

Hotel is isolated and used mainly by travellers with Princess Cruise Line who seemed to get priority treatment on booking in and in the restaurant. Arrived to find cards for room 211 not activated and on returning to reception had to wait for receptionist to stop chatting and laughing with Princess Cruise Line Tour Manager, no apology given re the card. Room overlooked car park but was quiet, it had 2 double beds which along with pillows were comfortable, TV, desk & 2 chairs, hairdryer, bath with shower over, toiletries but no moisturising lotion. WiFi free but only available in Wrangell room on 2nd floor. Evening meal had a good choice but at last 4 were not available and they were out of rice so only mashed or roast potatoes available and had to wait over an hour for food to be served. Breakfast not good, adequate choice but tinned fruit and oats so thick they wouldn't all off spoon and other food over salted. No English breakfast tea bags only a few herbal ones and out of orange juice. Bar ran out of some red wine.

Amazing Location for Lunch

We were driving form Valdez, AK to Anchorage, AK and out in the middle of seemingly nowhere stop at this lodge. It is a great looking lodge. While we only stopped for lunch all the staff was very friendly. The food and service in the dining room was great. This was a real pleasant surprise in the middle of a long drive.
