Located in the Alaskan wilderness, animals are commonly viewed while on excursions from the lodge. Typical to the area are moose, coyote, black bear, brown bear, wolf, marten, fox and beaver. Bald eagles and hawks are a daily sight at the lodge, as are numerous species of waterfowl. Trumpeter swans gather in May and nest in surrounding areas. The swans and other migratory waterfowl remain in the area through September.
We can arrange spectacular flight seeing tours of Denali (Mount McKinley), as well as area lakes and glaciers. Flight seeing is an excellent way to get a panoramic view of the many mountain ranges and to eye the abundant wildlife of Southcentral Alaska.
We have the only known (we never under estimate Alaskans) regulation size indoor racquetball court in the Alaskan Bush. The court is set up to also accommodate wallyball, handball and other sports in addition to racquetball.
