We went to Crooked Creek Oufitters at the end of June 2018. My husband had wanted to take a fishing trip to Alaska for several years but I wasn't too excited about the "fishing" part. I surprised him the previous Christmas by booking a seven day trip. This ended up being one of the most, if not the most, enjoyable vacation of our life time. The lodge is located about three and half hours south of Anchorage on the Kenai peninsula by a creek in a beautiful setting. The lodge itself is well built and very well maintained. Our host, Dorothy, and the staff were super friendly and professional. Everything was well organized, the food was excellent and the fishing super fun. The staff and fishing guides did absolutely everything for you and went beyond expectation. We caught our limits of salmon and halibut every day and came home with over 85 lbs of fish. We just did not want to leave when it was time to go and we are seriously considering going back soon. Even Remi, the lodge dog, was as precious as can be!

We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful week we've enjoyed here at Crooked Creek! The care you put into planning events, meals and our well being is truly extraordinary.

My wife and I enjoyed our time at Crooked Creek immensley. Their guides were all very professional and very patient. The fishing on both the river and the ocean was awesome. The side trips we took to Seward and Homer were well worth it. We saw more beautiful scenery than I can possibly express. Lastly, Dorothy treated us like royalty. And the food was off the charts! Truly, a trip of a lifetime.

My name is Joseph Debone and I'm from Norwalk, CT. I've returned to Crooked Creek Outfitter for my third consecutive year and I've had quite an exciting trip! I had a great day halibut fishing, a great day fishing for silver salmon, and two friends of mine who have never caught a king salmon before caught two king salmon on a drift boat on the Kasilof River. This is a well run organization that will take care of your fishing needs during the day time, and great food and comfortable lodging at the end of the day. The staff is cordial and well-versed. The guides are exceptional. Housekeeping staff and the chef do an exceptional job. I highly recommend it to the novice fisherman or the experienced sportsman.

Fantastic experience! Excellent service. Staff is exceptional. All fishing trips have been beyond expectations. The best thing is that there is nothing I have to do - from food, lodging, fishing, everything. Just show up and have a good time! Crooked Creek Outfitters is a journey worth taking!

Letter From Dorothy
I invite you to come and spend a week with us in my lodge, Crooked Creek Outfitters. The doors were first opened to guests in July of 2007 and we have been growing ever since. I am here year round, we do not lock up and go to the lower 48 in the winter. What makes us special is that we take care of all the details. Our goal is to make sure you have the best experience possible from the moment you arrive until we are waving good bye as you are pulling out of the driveway.
I know that it is difficult to pick the right location and then the right outfitter when there are so many on the web. The Kenai Peninsula gives you accessibility and variety. Most remotes and in the southeast you fish the same thing and the same place everyday. On the Peninsula you will have variety, salt fishing Halibut and multi-species, Salmon, Trout, rivers, lakes, streams, something different everyday or repeat your favorite.
Arrange your flight from your home town into Anchorage, rent a car and drive down to us or fly into the Kenai airport and we can pick you up or you can rent a car there. With a vehicle you can go out and about for sight-seeing and other activities.
I would love to have you stay with us for the first time or again. All of you who have stayed with us in the past helped make the last ten years a great success. We have made memories together. I would enjoy seeing you again or meeting you for the first time.
I will welcome you like your favorite aunt would, I will take care of details, serve wonderful fresh food, schedule the best activities and fishing trips I can. You will love it here and immediately feel at home once you walk in the front door. I have worked hard to make this a high end lodge/outfitter and balanced that with real, down home comfort. I love to see our guests down at the fire pit throwing horse shoes or sitting around the tables after dinner laughing. When the boats pull in I can't wait to get out there and check the catch. I ring the bell and yell, “Boats are in!" Then we all sit around the hanging rack and I get to listen to the recounting of the day’s events. Pictures, filleting, stories, laughs, guides joining in with some good natured ribbing of each other, a couple of beers handed out. Come join us!
I look forward to hearing from you,
Crooked Creek Retreat & Outfitters|59325 Sterling Highway Kasilof, AK 99610 | 907.252.9612
