Picture yourself on the deck of a beautiful cabin, pondering the serenity of the wilderness. Look for our resident moose or listen to the great horned owl in his favorite lookout tree on top of the hill. Knik River Lodge is remote enough to be true wilderness, yet just one hour by car from Anchorage. Perfectly situated for exploring Southcentral Alaska, we invite you to share our magical part of the world.

Sunny weather, beautiful scenery, lovely company made for a very memorable weekend. The Knik River Lodge is very nice and easily accessible. Service is excellent, facilities are well maintained and the beds are very comfortable. One thing vacationers should realize, this is a
