Deluxe Tent Lodge
At Alaska West we run a deluxe tent lodge. What does that mean? Anglers sleep in heated tents with carpeted wooden floors. Our dining tent gives plenty of room to spread out, relax and enjoy our Alaska Gourmet cuisine.
We provide showers and sinks with hot and cold running water, and our outhouse facilities are cleaned and emptied every day. If you’re looking for white linen tablecloths, you should look elsewhere. If you’re looking for a very comfortable place to spend the week fishing, relaxing and enjoying a little corner of Alaska, you’ve come to the right place.
We call our facility a “tent lodge”. It is made up of a combination of permanent and semi-permanent structures, and is designed to combine comfortable living, eating, and lounging areas with a location right on top of a phenomenal river.
The dining tent is a spacious 24 feet x 60 feet heated structure with wood floors and is always kept neat and clean. It fixes to our kitchen, a permanent structure which has all the necessary equipment such as gas ranges, convection oven, microwave, refrigerators and freezers.
The lounge is a great place to relax after a full day of fishing. This large heated tent is furnished with comfortable chairs and tables. At your disposal are a refrigerator with cool soda, juices and mixers, poker chips with cards, board games, dart board, magazines, books, map board, and yes Wi-Fi. We also have a fly-tying bench with a limited supply of fly-tying materials and vises. In 2019 we revamped the lounge and it now sports one end with a covered deck and bug netting walls, great for enjoying a coffee or tea in the morning before hitting the river.
After returning from your day’s fishing adventure this ‘tent’ serves as a place for you to hang your wet waders, coats, boots and anything else you don’t want wet or dirty in your sleeping quarters.
Showers & Restrooms/Outhouses
Our showers have hot and cold running water with a sink basin and chair. They are cleaned daily. Our restrooms are indeed outhouses. They too are cleaned daily and they are strategically located near your tent cabin.
Tent Cabins/Sleeping Quarters
Your heated tent cabin is furnished with two single beds with full bedding and pillow, clean shower linen, nightstand, hang-down bug net, lantern, carpeted floor and clothes hangers. Our housekeeping staff will come through daily to make beds, empty trash and tidy up to ensure your new home stays neat and clean.
