I waited over 10 years to go to Katmai National Park. We ended up with 3 nights of campground reservations this year after I botched lodge reservations for 2017 and couldn't get over it, so we planned the trip as the end to an Alaskan adventure. I love camping, so in my opinion, it worked out better than being in... More

We stayed with a tent for four mights at the camp and travel to see the grizlies catch the salmones. Great opportunity to see it from very close. Our mission was to take great photos and we made it. The best time to be at the platform is earlyorning and late afternoon then it is less crowded.

This was a great place to visit. Watched the big Brown Bears catching salmon, got some hikes in, and stayed in a nice cabin. The rangers and staff at the camp were great too - always friendly and helpful, you could tell they liked working there. The food at the lodge was really good too.

Once I got used to the idea of a bear deterrent fence as the only barrier between me and the bears-it was amazing!! BTW, the ranger did come around and hook a meter up the the fence to check the fence. We had a momma bear and yearling munching on berries right outside the fence one evening. The bears don't...

The brooks camp campground was nothing special for a national park campground. They had cooking shelters and a place to store your food. The camp sites (tho not official spaces) where spread out so you weren't on top of each other. Because you have to cook at a shelter it and there were only three it could get very busy... More

We spent one night in Katmai NP during this July 4th weekend. We stayed in the camp ground. The camp ground has 3 food shelters where you can cook and eat, 1 food storage room and 1 storage room for other luggage (the park suggests to leave as less items inside the tent as possible in case the bear accidentally...

ACT (Alaska Cruise Transfer) bus took us to Anchorage to catch the Alaska air plane to King Salmon.

We booked our stay minutes after the reservations had opened up as I heard spaces fill up quickly. And now we know why. Brooks Falls is an incredible place to get up close and personal with BIG brown bears. There is no place like it in the World. We spent hours watching from the platforms, taking National Geographic quality photos... More

We made the mistake of going here first on our Alaska trip. It was amazing, so much so that everywhere else we went afterwards was a bit on the dull side (with a few exceptions obviously!). I'm not sure what to say other than the bears were incredible. It was full on the main viewing platform in the afternoon so... More

“Cabins are best, rooms at the ends of the lodge building are best there.”
  • Lodge room interior - toilet left, shower right.

“There are no good rooms. The cabins are all the same, 2 bunkbeds. If you can afford to have only 2 people in the room - do it, because the cabins are really small.”
