Wow, what a great destination. If you are the sportsman looking to bag some of Alaska's salmon this is the place for you. Dorthy ask for your plans and makes all the accommodation so you don't have to do the search. She has multiple river boats with great guides like Brian. If your wanting some halibut you can get out...

My husband won a free trip to this fishing resort in Alaska. I went along and had the best time ever - it was worth paying for me to go. And we'd go again. The lodge was beautiful, our room (the duck room) had the best view in the place of Crooked Creek. The bed was so comfortable, the sheets...

Can't say enough good things about the staff here at Crooked Creek! Dorothy runs a top notch retreat and her staff is fantastic. From the moment we were picked up at the airport in Kenai we were completely taken care of. From transportation to meals to fishing excursions, all were thoroughly planned out. Accommodations were comfortable and inviting. The lodge...

Crooked Creek Retreat is a stunningly beautiful property that overlooks the most peaceful creek. We enjoyed evenings by the fire pit getting to know some of the other guests. Staying here is like staying in someone's very nice home, though there is plenty of personal space. The rooms are large & there is a nice, fluffy robe in your closet....

My son recently graduated from high school and I had promised him a memorable trip to either Africa to hunt or to Alaska to fish. I did as much research as I could, including using Tripadvisor, other internet sites, and talking to numerous lodges, outfitters and customers of the places I was considering. I will tell you that my research...

We have tried to reach out to you. Unfortunately you were blown off the salt and were here during a peak season. The weather was such that it wasn't safe and you would not have been able to stand up. When all the boats are blown off there are a lot of people who did not get out. It was...

We spent a week at this amazing resort in July. Every time we prepare some of the halibut and salmon we are brought back, we again recall the memories. They made us feel like part of THEIR family.

My husband and I are from Florida and are spend a lot of time fishing. We have dreamed of going to Alaska to fish for years, specifically for halibut and salmon.
