Kenai Backcountry Lodge

Kenai Backcountry Lodge is located on glacier-carved Skilak Lake and is accessible only by boat from Kenai Riverside Lodge. Located at Milepost 50.1 on the Sterling Highway, Kenai Riverside Lodge is an easy two-hour drive from Anchorage or one-hour drive from Seward. Originally built in the 1930s as a remote hunting lodge, Kenai Backcountry Lodge was lovingly restored and renovated to preserve its historic character but allow for a few modern conveniences.

Each morning, you'll wake up to a hot breakfast buffet before heading out for a guided activity. You might walk in to the aroma of hot blueberry pancakes, bacon, fresh fruit, coffee and tea. Your guide will meet you in the lodge for breakfast and soon you'll be gearing up for a great day of adventuring. A beautiful array of sandwich materials and sides like fresh fruit, homemade cookies and snacks will be available for you to pack a lunch that you'll love, and enjoy while out on your activity for the day. In the evening you'll come home to a four-course meal, served family-style in our lodge. Share stories about the day over a glass of wine or Alaskan micro-brew beer.
