Why we protect fish and wildlife habitat
Our riverside location provides a true connection with Nature that makes our guests' stay even more rewarding. Wildlife such as Bald Eagles, waterfowl, the magnificent Arctic Tern, moose and the occasional caribou or Brown bear bless our location throughout the season. Its wise to keep your cameras close at hand since you never know when that perfect photo opportunity will occur.
We are dedicated to conservation of the Kenai River and its fish & wildlife resources. We leave the sensitive river bank at the lodge untrampled in order to preserve the natural habitat where young salmon and trout fry grow up feeding on aquatic microorganisms. On some days our guests can observe hundreds of young fry hiding and feeding along the riparian habitat in front of the lodge. In just 2 - 6 years, some of these tiny 2" fry will return to their Kenai River "home" from the saltwaters of Cook Inlet to provide anglers like you with that thrill of a lifetime battling those huge Kings!
