Return to Anchorage


Silver Salmon Camp is located on the western shores of Cook Inlet.

We coordinate travel from Anchorage, Alaska by small plane on a one-hour, scenic charter flight over tidal marshes, streams and volcanic mountain ranges.

Accommodations in the lodge feature cabins, a separate restroom facility with a banya (traditional sauna), and communal dining and living areas.

ATVs are used to transport participants for nearby fishing, bear viewing and sightseeing activities.

For participants interested in taking advantage of the world renowned silver salmon fishing, SCF will arrange an opportunity for you to purchase the appropriate fishing license. Information about rules, regulations and acquiring a fishing license online will also be provided.
