BROOKS FALLS ~ KATMAI NATIONAL PARK ~ ALASKA
Brooks Lodge overlooks the World Famous Brooks River in the heart of Katmai National Park. The lodge, originally conceived as a fishing camp, has been in operation since 1950.
Guest accommodations consist of sixteen modern rooms all with modern private facilities. Rooms accommodate two to four persons.
The World Famous bear viewing at Brooks Falls is only a short walk from Katmailand’s Brooks Lodge. As many as fifty bears live along the mile and a half long Brooks River during the salmon season. Many visitors see bears within minutes of arrival. All visitors are instructed by the National Park Service on how to conduct themselves in “Bear Country”.
Brooks Falls has been forever etched in the mind of angler, and is now becoming known to the world for its bears, who also love the fishing.
In the Heart of the Magnificent Katmai Wilderness
The facilities have seen continuous upgrading and have gained a world-wide reputation, attracting visitors from all continents. Bear viewing at Brooks Falls is only a short walk away.
Superb sportfishing is available adjacent to the lodge on the Brooks River and on the Brooks and Naknek Lakes. The Brooks River is fly fishing only. The Brooks Lodge fishing packages are for independent minded fly fishermen who want to experience the great sportfishing of the Katmai area without the expense of a fully guided sportfishing lodge. Including fly outs in your stay will provide the means to fish other hot spots and allow you to take advantage of the variety of species of fish available in southwest Alaska.
At Brooks Lodge you are just 22 miles from the volcanic “Valley of 10,000 Smokes“. The Valley is the sight of one of the most violent eruptions in modern history. Novarupta Volcano exploded in 1912 with blasts of hot winds and gas which spewed hot glowing pumice and ash, destroying all living things and burying more than 40 square miles of lush green valley under ash deposits to depths of 700 feet. Daily tours of “Valley of 10,000 Smokes” depart from Brooks Lodge daily.
Comfortable accommodations in the heart of the magnificent Katmai wilderness make this a truly perfect vacation spot.
Reservations may be made through Katmailand, Inc. (800-544-0551 or 907-243-5448) or by calling any travel agent.
Thirty Years of ‘AMAZING’ Fly Fishing Experiences!
WOW! What a magical experience. The staff are superlative. Everyone treated as though we were as important as family.
My favorite place on earth! I have been there many times, and loved every minute of every visit. I just wish I could be there again this year.
Kulik Lodge – Great Experience. This is a destination fishing lodge but there is plenty of wildlife and sites nearby if fishing is not your only interest. The fishing, however, was excellent.
