Driftwood Wilderness Lodge is located on a secluded lagoon on Kodiak Island with breathtaking views of Uyak Bay. The lodge sits not far from small village of Larsen Bay which is home to about 100 year around residents. At Driftwood Wilderness Lodge you're able to create your own adventure in the wonders of the wilderness...in addition to incredible saltwater & freshwater fishing you can also choose to experience Kodiak hunting, wildlife viewing, nature photography, hiking & more!

Larsen Bay is a truly amazing place that’s surrounded by Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, a whopping 2,812 square mile preserve that engulfs most of Kodiak Island. The refuge features rugged mountains highlighted by alpine meadows, abundant wetlands, and long-lasting spruce forests. Kodiak Island wildlife viewing is endless and we have plenty of Kodiak Brown Bears and hundreds of different species that call this island home. Kodiak Island also is home to 600 breeding pairs of bald eagles and on the water our guests will spot seals, sea lions, sea otters, porpoises, puffins, and whales. Take time to come enjoy the beauty of Kodiak Island, where the only noise is the occasional bush plane.

Fishing with Driftwood Wilderness Lodge

If you’re looking for an amazing Kodiak fishing charter, you’ve found the right company. Most guests of Driftwood Wilerness Lodge choose saltwater fishing charters that target salmon & halibut...and you don't have to venture too far the lodge features protected bays and inlets that are close to the village. If you’re looking to go fishing for salmon, halibut, lingcod, and rockfish in a remote & beautiful Alaska setting this is the place for you. If you're looking for freshwater fishing they're also a short boat ride away from stream fishing for salmon, steelhead, and Dolly Varden....guests can also take a trip the Karluk River, which is world famous for its sockeye salmon and king salmon runs during the summer months.

Staying with Driftwood Wilderness Lodge

Enjoy the beauty of Kodiak Island without worrying about equipment, meals, or lodging because they got all that covered. All you have to do is relax and work with Captain Nick to plan out your incredible adventure. When staying with Driftwood Wilderness Lodge you have two options. You can choose to stay at their Wilderness Camp which is a 1,500 sq ft hand built cabin on the shores of Uyak Bay. The camp was hand built by Nick and volunteers...all wood was salvaged from the sea and milled onsite and the construction was featured on the DIY Network’s program Building Alaska! The camp is rustic but Nick says that's what makes it so special.

For those guests looking for more modern amenities they also have a lodge situated in the village of Larsen Bay just steps from Humpy Creek. This newer location offers 4 guest bedrooms, two bathrooms and has all the conveniences of home, including a washer and dryer. Larsen Bay is home to about 100 year round residents and during the summer months, when the local cannery is open for business, the population of Larsen Bay jumps to 300, and the local store is open for business. They have all the personal items you may wish for and ice cream! Larsen Bay is a truly amazing place that’s surrounded by Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, a whopping 2,812 square mile preserve that engulfs most of Kodiak Island.
