Imagine casting dry flies to rising Grayling and into the shimmer of the midnight sunset. Imagine a peaceful morning of sipping coffee while listening to the ocean’s roar and then casting to dime-bright Silver Salmon, full of rod-bending power. Ahh, the stories you’ll have to tell when you return home. Crystal Creek Lodge offers three exclusive options for your next Alaskan adventure. Set between snow peaked mountains, boreal forests, vast tundra and the sea, our remote bush camps offer unique opportunities to experience intimate fishing in the untouched wilderness of Alaska. So, if you love the outdoors and the feeling of being closer to nature, then let us know how we can fit a remote camp into your schedule.

Guests may choose to experience one of three remote camp destinations during their visit. NOTE: visits to these camps are by advance guest request only and should be considered only by those who desire a hardy wilderness experience and can bear leaving the luxury of the lodge for a night.  All camps have BASIC comforts. Yantarni has the better accommodations of the three. Camps are limited to four persons per destination per night and by first request basis:
