After finishing up the 2018 season at the lodge and having some time to contemplate the lessons learned from this past season and how we would like to improve going forward. We have decided to make a couple of changes for the upcoming 2019 season.
In order to offer a couple of single-occupancy rooms we will be reducing the number of guests at the lodge from 12 to 10. This will allow us to offer two single-occupancy rooms at a rate of $12,000 and four double-occupancy rooms at a rate of $10,500. The two single rooms will be sold on a first-come first-serve basis.
On Mondays your round-trip charter flight from Anchorage to King Salmon will be on a local air taxi, Katmai Air. We will book those flights for you and that cost is included in the weekly rate. The flight out to the lodge will depart Anchorage at 3:00pm (you will need to check in at 2:00pm), landing in King Salmon around 4:00pm. Katmai Air departs from Lake Hood (4125 Aircraft Drive, Anchorage). They have a free shuttle that will pick you up at the airport and bring you to their office to check-in. You can call them directly when you land and request a pickup, 907-243-0649. Many hotels that offer an airport shuttle will also bring you to Lake Hood. So if you’re staying in Anchorage prior to your trip to the lodge you can arrange a shuttle with your hotel or with Katmai Air.
On the following Monday morning you will fly in our float planes from the lodge to King Salmon. We recommend booking your return flight from Anchorage no earlier than 2pm to allow for any weather delays. Upon arrival in Anchorage, Katmai Air has a free shuttle that will bring you to the Ted Stevens Airport, or to any nearby hotels.
