Gakona Lodge

7 days a week From May through September

Gakona Lodge is one of the oldest lodges in Alaska!  The lodge is very nice and we have attempted to keep it Historic.  The cabins are also historic and have been recently remodeled .  If you want to truly experience Alaska, this would be a great place for you to stay.  Wolf in front Lobby of Gakona LodgeIf you are expecting a fancy hotel then you should probably consider other accommodations.  The cabins all have private bathrooms, and most of the rooms in the lodge have shared bathrooms as in the days of old.  We do have wireless internet and public access to internet.  We're confident that you'll find the lodge cozy and refreshing.  In the winter, the Carriage House Restaurant is closed but we do offer a continental breakfast for nightly customers and home-style meals for those on extended stays.  Our cabins are available in the winter for extended stays.  We are adjacent world class salmon and trout fishing on the Gulkana, Delta and Klutina Rivers and 2 hours away from awesome halibut fishing.

During the winter we are open Friday and Saturday nights.  During the Summer Solstice (Mid to late June and August), we have our famous "Half-Way to Christmas", "Half-Way to New Years" and "Half-Way to 40 Below" parties.  This building originated as the "Shower House" for the Army Corp of Engineers in 1942 when they were constructing the ALCAN Highway in response to the Japanese Invasion of the Aleutian Islands.
