Gwin's Lodge is a series of 15 cabins that sit along the Kenai River just west of Kenai Lake. The lodge is direct along Highway 1, the Sterling Highway. Getting here is fairly easy and the road, though two-lane is a very pleasurable drive. We flew into Anchorage and then rented a car. It is about a two-hour drive from Anchorage to Cooper Landing. You can also fly into the town of Kenai and rent a car. The drive from Kenai to Gwin's Lodge is about 45-minutes.
The cabins here are well appointed and come with a kitchen, dining area and usually one-bedroom. Cabins sleep up to six guests though there are options for cabins that sleep two or four people. The on-site restaurant serves up awesome food. Expect an awesome fishing adventure. There are an on-site tackle shop and plenty of non-fishing things to do around the area.

The Fish, The Rivers, and the Guides
Because this is the Upper Kenai River, the fish run just a bit later here. If you want Kings check with your guide. If you want Silvers, Late August through September. If you want Sockeye, June, July, and August. You also want to take some time and fly fish for the trophy rainbow trout that are here. An outstanding guide knows where the King spawning beds are, and that is where the 30-inch trout and the Trophy Dolly Varden will be found.
Overall, you cannot miss with Gwin's Lodge and Cooper Landing.
