Easy to get to, hard to leave. Rapids Camp Lodge is just an 80-minute flight from Anchorage, yet it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life. Unparalleled fly fishing in the heart of the famed Bristol Bay watershed — home to enormous rainbow trout, five species of salmon, Arctic char, pike, and grayling.
Rapids Camp Lodge was designed exclusively with comfort in mind; our entire philosophy is to create ease for our guests. In every sense we are a reflection of a passion for excellence. Rapids Camp Lodge is a facility with a fishing program like none other in Bristol Bay. We own 60 acres and over a mile and a half of river frontage right in the heart of Bristol Bay, and this private oasis provides a perfect location from which to launch our expert fly-out program. With a spare-no-expense ideology, we have assembled the most spectacular fleet of planes and boats ever put together in one package.
In the main lodge we have eight spacious, double occupancy rooms, each with a private bathroom. We also have a two-bedroom “House on the Hill” that accommodates 3 or 4 people. Nestled into the bluff this house gives small groups or families a wonderful private setting. No matter which lodging option you chose, you can expect comfortable to enjoy fine linens and beds just as if you were home. Lodge amenities include a fully equipped workout facility, quiet reading room, open bar for beer and private label wine, beautiful new Jacuzzi, high-speed wireless Internet, and satellite television. (On the occasion we have less than a full house we do accommodate single anglers.)
Compared to other wilderness fishing lodges, we have a huge advantage in being connected to town by a road. This accessibility to daily flights from Anchorage allows our world-class chefs to pamper us with meals of the freshest ingredients.
We serve only the finest meats and wild game (duck, Kobe beef, venison, etc.) and have fresh produce delivered weekly. With the freshest Halibut and Salmon available, our chefs create mouthwatering culinary delights. Our chefs delight in preparing exciting, yet hearty creations with ingredients from gourmet vendors from all over the country.
Our chefs serve up a hearty buffet which is different each morning. Everything from Eggs Benedict to fresh baked goods will greet you. You will always have your choice of fresh fruit, juices and hot Starbucks coffee to get your ready for a day of battling Alaska’s biggest fish.
While out for the day you will be fed a hot shore lunch of Salmon (weather and bears permitting). If you are rafting or hiking we send along a delicious picnic lunch. Please feel free to make requests. If you are fishing on the Naknek expect a nice hot lunch at the lodge.
After a hot shower and cold beer from the bar, you will enjoy tasty appetizers – cheeses, local seafood, in house smoked Salmon, etc. Dinner shortly follows featuring fresh salads, the finest meats, homemade sauces and incredible deserts all served plated in 5 star yet casual settings.
