Great location , with super friendly staff. Accommodation was nice , with a family friendly lodge. Fun meeting people from all over the world , who came to fish for Silver Salmon. We arrived at the peak of the season , however the region experienced the worst rainfall in 20 years resulting in discoloured water and very poor fishing conditions....

It's hard to pick the best thing about WPL - but if I had to, I'd say it was their staff. I have gone on two great trips there - and both have been "off the charts". The cabins are nice, clean, and very nice Tempurpedic beds. The food? 5 star gourmet, all the way. Flat out amazing, given that...

Our holiday in Wilderness Place Lodge was spectacular. Atmosphere, hospitality, guide and fishing was amazing. Jason and back of house staff created a home away from home feeling. Dereck and his team created fantastic meals, particularly freshly caught wild Alaskan King salmon. Our two nights stay in Solitude island was unforgettable. Thank you and see you again.

We travelled to Wilderness Place Lodge all the way from New Zealand on a bucket list trip. We were not disappointed. All our expectations and goals were met. The friendliness of the staff, fantastic facilities and epic fishing made this a trip we will never forget. We will certainly be back.

Just completed our first trip to wilderness place lodge. Came with high expectations given trip advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed.

I only had time for a single day of fishing on Lake Creek with the Wilderness Place Lodge but it was absolutely terrific. Noah was an outstanding guide, not just because I caught fish (though I did) but because the whole day was so enjoyable.
