Katmai National Park and Brooks Lodge are in the bush. If you are wanting luxury, go somewhere else. The cabins are small. The beds are comfortable. The shower is great. There is heat and electricity. The food is very good. There was fresh salmon every...More

The infrastructure at Brooks consists of a seaplane base (basically just the lake and shore), a meeting cabin (where the bear training takes place, along with some evening ranger talks), a dining hall, a combination office/store, cabins (I believe there are 16 of them), trails...More

The cabins (built in the 1960's) have comfortable bunk beds that require some agility to get into. The upper bunk is 2' from the top, so no sitting on the lower bunk for adults. Good mattresses, tight quarters though. Food is reasonable, plentiful, well prepared...More

We are park collectors and came to this part to not only check it off our list but also to see bears and we were NOT disappointed. We saw mama bears and cubs, bears fishing in the falls, bears swimming and fishing in the marsh....More

About
Description
In the Heart of the Magnificent Katmai Wilderness Brooks Lodge overlooks the world famous Brooks River in the heart of Katmai National Park. The lodge, originally conceived as a fishing camp, has been in More operation since 1950. The facilities have seen continuous upgrading and have gained a world-wide reputation, attracting visitors from all continents. Bear viewing at Brooks Falls is only a short walk away. Guest accommodations consist of sixteen modern rooms all with modern private facilities. Rooms accommodate two to four persons. The beautiful main lodge building boasts a spectacular view of aquamarine Naknek Lake. Its large circular fireplace is popular for evening relaxing and reminiscing about the day's adventures. Hearty Alaska fare is served three times a day buffet style in the dining area of the lodge. Cocktails are available for purchase at the lodge bar each afternoon and evening. The world famous bear viewing at Brooks Falls is only a short walk from Katmailand's Brooks Lodge. As many as fifty bears live along the mile and a half long Brooks River during the salmon season. Many visitors see bears within minutes of arrival. All visitors are instructed by the National Park Service on how to conduct themselves in "Bear Country". Superb sportfishing is available adjacent to the lodge on the Brooks River and on the Brooks and Naknek Lakes. The Brooks River is fly fishing only. The Brooks Lodge fishing packages are for independent minded fly fishermen who want to experience the great sportfishing of the Katmai area without the expense of a fully guided sportfishing lodge. Including fly outs in your stay will provide the means to fish other hot spots and allow you to take advantage of the variety of species of fish available in southwest Alaska. At Brooks Lodge you are just 22 miles from the volcanic "Valley of 10,000 Smokes". The Valley is the sight of one of the most violent eruptions in modern history. Novarupta Volcano exploded in 1912 with blasts of hot winds and gas which spewed hot glowing pumice and ash, destroying all living things and burying more than 40 square miles of lush green valley under ash deposits to depths of 700 feet. Daily tours of "Valley of 10,000 Smokes" depart from Brooks Lodge daily. Comfortable accommodations in the heart of the magnificent Katmai wilderness make this a truly perfect vacation spot. Less
