Welcome to Kenai Backcountry Lodge

In the heart of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge’s two million acres of stunning mountain, lake and river habitat lies Kenai Backcountry Lodge: a unique, historic property offering discerning travelers a rustic and remote Alaskan experience. Tucked along the shoreline of a glacier-carved lake and accessed only by boat, Kenai Backcountry Lodge promises a picturesque wilderness setting rich with history, comfort, hospitality and natural beauty. Our commitment to eco-tourism is evident here, in the quiet operation of a custom hydro-electric system that allows for minimal dependence on fossil fuels. Nine guest cabins ensure a small group atmosphere at all times and a lighter footprint on the earth. All offer charming indoor amenities, including lodge-style furnishings, private bathroom and shower, private deck, linens, comforters, propane heaters and lights.

A photo can capture a thousand words, and our brand new videos capture even more! See for yourself the beauty and excitement which awaits when you join an Alaska Wildland Adventures all-inclusive tour or independent lodge-to-lodge vacation!

Like all Alaska Wildland Adventures’ lodges, Kenai Backcountry Lodge is an all-inclusive wilderness lodge featuring guided activities, delicious meals, private accommodations and round trip transportation either from Cooper Landing (for our self-drive friends) or from Anchorage (picking up and dropping off at local hotels or the airport).

Three ways to stay:

1. Enjoy Kenai Backcountry Lodge as a stand-alone package in your self-designed Alaska vacation itinerary.

2. Combine with Kenai Riverside Lodge and/or Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge to create a custom, flexible itinerary all your own.

3. Join us on a multi-day, all-inclusive Alaska Adventure that includes a two night stay at Kenai Backcountry Lodge!
