Since its inception in 1983, Silver Salmon Creek Lodge has operated an outpost Tent Camp, situated 10 miles south of the lodge along a quiet, picturesque salmon stream with volcanic Mt. Iliamna as a back-drop and Cook Inlet in the foreground. The camp is designed for adventurous anglers and photographers seeking to get off the beaten track into a truly remote wilderness setting, while still enjoying comfortable camping.
The camp is designed for parties up to six, and only operates from late July through early Sept. This coincides with the salmon run which infiltrates the stream, providing excellent angling opportunities for coho and char, as well as coastal brown bear and bald eagle photo opportunities.
The camp utilizes fabricated Hansen weatherport tents, which are rainproof and very durable. Although rustic, campers enjoy large tents, elevated padded cots with warm sleeping bags, a full kitchen and comfortable camp chairs around the fire. The guides ensure the guests are well fed and enjoy a safe and rewarding Alaskan wilderness experience. To remain compliant with Nat'l Park Service regulations, the amenities are kept simple, with no running water (fresh water is supplied daily).
Silver Salmon Creek Lodge supports ecotourism principles by operating in an environmentally sound manner and supports responsible travel that conserves natural resources.
