We had an overnight stay at the Gakona Lodge and Trading Post. Currently the new owners are in process of updating the lodge but we had a very nice stay. The cabin room which we were in was very comfortable. The sound of the flowing river behind the cabin was very relaxing. We had breakfast at the restaurant. It was a continental breakfast and met our needs. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.
One hint, which has nothing to do with the lodge, is that it is in a remote area. If you want soft drinks/snacks, be sure to stop before getting to the Lodge for the night. There is a package store on the way to the lodge coming in from Glennallen. Glennallen is about 15 miles from the lodge where a pretty big store is located. Chistotina is about 34 miles from the lodge where another store is located (closes at 6 PM)
