    Alaska's Gold Creek Lodge is an Alaska fishing and adventure lodge perched on the banks of the world-famous Naknek River in beautiful King Salmon, Alaska. Our lodge is at the entrance to Katmai National Park and located on the southwestern peninsula approximately 280 miles from Anchorage, within the Bristol Bay watershed. King Salmon is only accessible by air, which ensures you a truly remote wilderness experience away from the crowds. The Naknek River and the surrounding area hosts prolific runs of five species of salmon and is a designated trophy rainbow trout area. The Naknek river is a tidal river which brings in a fresh crop of salmon with each new tide, ensuring excellent fishing every day. The Naknek River is boasted by Fish Alaska Magazine as "the best rainbow trout fishing in Alaska", and we agree!

    From our adventure lodge as your luxury base camp, you can experience world-class guided fishing, float plane and heli fishing fly-out fishing, back country ATV adventures, hiking, sport shooting, kayaking, paddle boarding, excellent Coastal Brown Bear/wildlife viewing, beach combing, and exploring in Katmai National park. You will leave with memories that will last a lifetime.

    Gold Creek Lodge is a two generation family run, veteran owned operation. We exclusively invite only 12 -14 guests a week to experience this unique "fishing lodge", which truly is the ultimate adventure retreat. We at Alaska's Gold Creek Lodge are dedicated to providing you with personal service, and the epic Alaskan fishing adventure you've always dreamed of. What are you waiting for? Your Adventure in Alaska awaits...
