Naknek River Camp - Alaska's Affordable Alternative

Naknek River Camp Rates

The guy that coined the phrase that "everything is bigger in Texas", had obviously never visited Alaska. The mountains are taller, the rivers are endless, the salmon runs are almost uncountable, the rainbows are monsters and the bears are bigger than you can imagine until you see one up close.

We don't accept the premise that Alaska fishing can only be for the rich. It is true that the prices are also bigger in Alaska - there are almost no roads in the state so everything and everyone is transported by airplane, which is costly - but we have done everything we can to bring the price of a trip down to a reasonable level.

We are trying to provide an all-inclusive trip, but some visitors may want to customize their trip.

Fly-outs - Many float plane destinations are available for a day trip. The cost for a fly-out trip varies with the distance to the chosen destination, but many guided trips are available for $300 - $500 per person per day.

Bear and other wildlife photo safaris - In the course of our normal fishing day, we will likely have many opportunities to see and photograph the abundant wildlife populations. However, some serious photographers may want to spend more time pursuing the perfect photo. Let us know in advance of the trip and we will make sure that we plan a day or two in areas that maximize your opportunities for great photographs.
