Perched on the river banks of our beautiful remote river, Wilderness Place Lodge sits on 10 private acres in the heart of the Susitna Valley, 80 air miles northwest of Anchorage. We are a full-service, deluxe Alaska fishing lodge and eco-adventure company focused on the best service and hospitality. Our home river is a freestone river system meandering 60 miles from its source at Chelatna Lake on the border of Denali National Park. The river is famed for its large runs of all 5 species of Alaska pacific salmon and healthy native populations of Alaska Rainbow Trout. Our fishing lodge offers all-inclusive, full service packages for any duration stay. You can arrive and depart on any day of the week, which makes our operation very unique and comfortably flexible. The private deluxe cabins are modern with comfy mattresses, fine amenities and full bath/shower within. The food is top notch and the staff is the friendliest people you will meet. We take pride in hospitality first to be sure all our comfortable and feel welcome at our unique wilderness place.

Wilderness Place Lodge focuses on keeping the small up-close-and-personal approach unlike many larger resort environments.

With one guide for two to three guests, and a one-to-one staff ratio, you can experience a highly customized fishing vacation with all the spoils. Stay in one of the seven modern guest cabins on our 10 acre private riverside parcel. Meal options and fishing schedules are flexible, so plan your time here as you please! Local, micro-brew beer, wifi, all fishing gear, and top-of-the-line fishing waders are included. The fabulous fishing, friendly staff and fine amenities draw a 50% guest return rate each summer. Plan well in advance if you want to include Wilderness Place Lodge in your next Alaskan adventure. To request further information or brochures, secure online information form.

Experience our remote, scenic clear-water tributary, and the spin and fly fishing opportunities that abound!

Visit our Alaska fishing page for complete guide to Fishing Alaska. The lodge boasts awesome Alaska salmon, trout and grayling fishing right in our home waters! Our remote river system fills with strong runs of five Alaska salmon species each summer. Trophy king salmon (15-50lbs) enter the river in early June and run strong through the 10th of July. Sockeye and pink salmon arrive in large numbers in mid-July followed by silver salmon and chum salmon. Our river also boasts a thriving native Rainbow Trout fishery. While there's great trout fishing throughout the season, early to mid-June, late July, August and September are peak trophy Trout time. Seeking a change of scenery? Try a boat outing to a nearby chain of lakes for excellent Northern Pike fishing throughout the summer. Pike fishing in this very different fishery is excellent with spin or fly fishing gear.
