Discover the magic of an authentic Alaska vacation where outdoor adventures, breathtaking nature and comfortable lodging come together for an unforgettable experience. Located on the beautiful Fish Lakes Creek and only three miles from Lake Creek, Alaska, Northwoods Lodge welcomes you to experience the heart and beauty of Alaska!
Known as a premier fishing lodge, Northwoods makes it easy to cast your line again and again on your vacation. Just a short trip away you’ll discover Lakes Creek, a 60-mile long river that runs north to south from Chelatna Lake in the mountains down to Yentna River and makes Northwoods the most productive fishing lodge in the area. Plus, they are a short boat-ride away from six other incredible creeks for even more opportunities to appease fishing-enthusiasts of all ages. Lakes Creek lets you enjoy plenty of excitement and challenges on your trip, featuring beautiful isolated islands and plenty of backwater areas for you to explore. Spin and fly-fishing are the most popular and the lodge’s professional guides will help you discover the best spots to reel in a trophy catch.
The lodge takes care of everything to ensure your trip is the best it can be. With 20’ custom-built boats, and state-of-the-art equipment including G-Loomis rods with Shimano spinning reels or Abu Garcia Bait Casters, you’re well-equipped for an adventure. To make sure you experience the most out of your time on the water, Northwoods’ CPR Certified fishing guides will be with you every step of the way. Their guides are Coast Guard Licensed and are a wealth of knowledge in both fly-fishing and spin-fishing. Your guide will take you on a thrilling jet boat ride to the area’s rich salmon and trout beds!
Guest Wilson Green happily said about his experience, “I had a wonderful time at your "compound.” The whole setup is well thought out and the fishing was great. Bill did a great job guiding us (it didn't hurt that we got our limit almost every day). We enjoyed your hospitality, food, and conversation and we hope that we can make a return trip here. It was a memorable time with my son as we were celebrating his college graduation, a time we will both cherish. Keep up the good work.”
From the moment you arrive at the lodge, you will be greeted by your fishing guide who will remain with you for the duration of your stay. The lodge prides itself on its close-knit and comfortable vacation experience, hosting only 12 guests maximum at a time and providing three to four guides on staff, ensuring everyone has a truly personalized experience.
