Reservation, Deposit, and Payment Policies:

Space is available on a first-deposit, first-reserved basis. We recommend making reservations more than one year in advance. Before October 1, a $500.00 per person deposit is required to secure space. The balance of the 50% deposit is due by October 1. After October 1, a 50% deposit per person is required to confirm a reservation. The balance of payment is due 90 days before the reservation date.

Prices posted reflect current-year pricing. Due to the extremely high costs of operating a business of this caliber in remote Alaska and long-term unforeseeable increases in overhead and operating expenses, Crystal Creek Lodge reserves the right to increase prices in order to operate at a reasonable profit. Prices for the following year will be posted on October 1.  Those with deposited reservations may cancel with notice by October 31 and receive a full refund if they deem the price increase to be unacceptable.

Cancellations: $500.00 of the deposit is non-refundable after October 1 of the year preceding the trip dates. A deposit may be transferred to another person who is not booked at the lodge for the current season. If it is necessary to cancel a reservation, written notice must be received at the Crystal Creek Lodge office by January 1st of the current season year to receive a refund of deposits less the $500.00 per person non-refundable fee. All cancellations after January 1st will result in the forfeiture of the full deposit and/or trip payment unless a substitute is provided.  There will be no exceptions.

My daughter and I have been coming to Crystal Creek for years. This year we had 10 people in our group. Every single person raved about the trip being one of the best weeks of their lives! The fishing is incredible, with big rainbows, beautiful dolly vardon, grayling, and salmon. The lodge is beautiful, with big comfortable rooms, wonderful housekeeping, a terrific tavern area, lockers for each guest, and lovely common areas. The food is delicious. The fishing equipment is as good as it gets, so there is no need to bring your own. The 4 Beaver airplanes are in pristine condition and flown by very experienced pilots. However, what makes CCL so extraordinary is the people. The owners, guides, chefs, kitchen staff, and support staff are committed to making sure that each guest has the trip of a lifetime, and they deliver every single time! They are friendly, encouraging, hardworking, and fun to be around. I cannot imagine another place with a better team, better accommodations, or better fishing. I would never consider going anywhere else in Alaska!
