The Kenai River is the most popular place to fish in all of Alaska. It offers grand views, an abundance of delicious king salmon, and a relaxing getaway for people from around the world. Just as there is no shortage of fish in the river, there is no shortage of lodging options for tourists.
People who want to fish in the Kenai will need to decide what kind of experience they want before they settle on where to stay. For those interested in maximizing their time spent in the great outdoors, there are plenty of campgrounds and RV parks near and on the river. Campers will certainly enjoy staying in the beautiful Alaskan wilderness but are also at the mercy of the weather and mother nature. For those who prefer a sturdy roof over their heads, there are a lot of chain hotels and motels in the area and in the nearby town of Soldotna. These are sometimes far away from the river and do not usually provide fishing gear or guides, so you’ll have to hire a pro and drag all your gear with you from home. There are also rental cabins on the river, but you will run into similar problems: no gear and no guides.
Smart travelers know the best way to enjoy the Kenai on their Alaskan vacation is to book a room at a lodge. There are dozens of lodges along the Kenai, but none as good of a deal as the Gone Fishin’ Lodge on the Kenai River. This cost-effective option offers absolutely everything you’ll need for your big fishing trip. They have comfortable rooms with wireless internet, daily breakfast, experienced and licensed guides, fishing equipment, and the cleaning gear and freezer you’ll need to store all the fish you’re sure to catch. Plus, their affordable price is hard to beat. So stop searching for the perfect place to stay and book a room at the Gone Fishin’ Lodge on the Kenai River!
