Lake Clark National Park has been our home for since 1983. We are pleased to show our guests all that this beautiful stretch of coastline offers. Watching brown bears at home in their natural setting, fishing for several species of fish, clam digging, canoeing and kayaking. We also offer amazing coastal boat tours to see numerous species like puffins, parakeet auklets, common murres, black legged kittiwakes, sea otters, harbor seals, dahl porpoise and much more.
Bear viewing is exceptional at the Alaska Homestead Lodge. You will enjoy watching the coastal brown bears with a trained guide. These majestic bruins are incredible to watch and the sows with cubs are simply adorable. The young bears are very energetic as they play and rough-house. We move into the field using ATV’s towing a custom built trailers to access the fields and tidal flights where the bears frequent. From there we go on foot, 100 yards to a quarter mile to get within close proximity of these amazing creatures. The guides are well trained to maintain safety while positioning the group for best photo opportunities. Many times you can view the bears right from the lodge as we sit down and enjoy delicious meals. This intimate setting is perfect for having those intrinsic wildlife experiences we all love.Book Now!
Fishing opportunities are world class at the Alaska Homestead Lodge. The main targeted species are Coho salmon, Chum Salmon, Pink Salmon and Dolly Varden. We can even arrange for a halibut fishing charter with our sister lodge if the tides and weather cooperate for a $150 pp, minimum 3 people. We fish from two main rivers, walking the banks looking for schools of fish hiding in the clear water pools. This area is enjoyed by both beginner and seasoned angler, fly and spin fisherman. The scenic back drops and abundance of wildlife makes this one of the best places to experience Alaska’s renown fishing.
We provide fishing rods and terminal tackle for those who are traveling light. You can get your fishing license prior to your visit HERE or we can write you one when you arrive. The daily salmon limit is 2 per day per person. We are happy to process, package and freeze the fish for you to take home with you complimentary. We do not arrange for shipping but can point you in the right direction.
Enjoy a 4-hour boat ride along the beautiful and dynamic coast line of Lake Clark National Park passing waterfalls along the way. At the island you’ll be amongst a swarm of horned puffins, common murres, tufted puffins, parakeet auklets, black legged kittiwakes and many more pelagic sea birds. Along the way we will look out for sea otters, dall porpoises, harbor seals, and what ever else Cook Inlet has to offer. It is a highlight for everyone who takes this tour.
Trip costs $150 pp and is subject to weather and availability but we try very hard to get everyone up to see the island.
