The Kenai Riverside Resort is an all-inclusive Alaska fishing and lodging experience. We are conveniently located just a few miles above the Soldotna Bridge. Furthermore, our secluded 2 Acre wooded setting is directly on the banks of the mighty Kenai River. The all-inclusive resort provides you with unique canvas cabins, great food, wonderful social environment, friendly guides, and plenty of fishing opportunities. This is a beautiful section of the river. In addition, our location just above the Soldotna Bridge means we have great access to both the lower and middle sections of the Kenai River. Therefore, many of the fishing adventures can leave directly from our resort. Also, depending upon which adventures you are on that particular day and others are only a short drive. Our location on the river also makes for great sockeye fishing right from our banks during the Kenai River sockeye run.
The Kenai Peninsula and the Kenai Riverside Resort are easily accessible with a beautiful drive around Turnagain arm. This scenic drive leads you through the Chugach National Forest and Kenai Wildlife Refuge. Whether you’re planning for a long stay or just a few days you’ll feel at home at the Kenai Riverside Resort. We know you will absolutely enjoy the hospitality we provide.
We’ve spent countless hours fishing the waters of the Kenai Peninsula and adventuring in the surrounding areas. You can really never be bored here and we’re so fortunate to be able to share it with you. Our resort is located directly on the Kenai River. We are only a few minute’s drive from the heart of Soldotna, for a reason – it’s simply the best place to be. As a matter of fact, the mighty Kenai River has one of the largest runs of king, sockeye, silver, and pink salmon in the world. And it’s all right outside your door. Most other adventures are a short drive.
Join us for our pre-dinner social hour! Leave the cooking to us and enjoy the meals prepared by our staff, all while listening to live Alaskan music. Coupled with one of the finest views found anywhere. Our menu focuses on fresh catch and we are always excited to share with our guests how we prepare salmon gravlax, blackened salmon risotto, seafood tacos, our chowder recipes, and much more. In addition, with our on-premise smoke shack, we’ll teach our techniques for smoking salmon so you’ll be able to take that home as well
We take pride in what we do here in Alaska. More importantly, we love sharing it. Our staff is patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. We’re dedicated to providing you with the best experience possible.
