Amazing Fishing Opportunities

Kenai River Lodge – Private Shoreline

Kenai River Lodge is family-owned and operated right here in Soldotna, Alaska. Since taking over the lodge in 2012, we’ve treated every customer like they were a part of our family. Our services are the best around, and they come with a personal touch.  

We have over 400ft of bank fishing reserved for guests of the lodge only. We have walkways with stairs to wade down into the river. We offer BBQ grills, a fire pit with firewood, two fish cleaning tables, and a fish hanging station for photos. We also have a freezer room containing two chest freezers that may be used on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are hooks on the outside of each room for hanging waders. Come join us at the Kenai River Lodge!
