Lodging in King Salmon, Alaska

03.02.12

The following gives you an idea about the different lodging options in King Salmon, AK for before or after your Alaska fishing adventure.

Be mentally prepared, lodging is generally overpriced for what you get compared to what you see in the lower 48 for the same money. Summer time economics do dictate – high demand and low supply. But also remember that it is VERY expensive to operate a business in rural Alaska ($10 for a gallon milk, for instance).

Prices are generally highest in July and August, but often drop at some point in September as demand drops off a bit.

    Rus and Carrie,
    You might consider posting a few restaurants in King Salmon that serve Dinner
    on your website. Once before, Ron and I were turned around because of weather on our
    travel day to camp and had to re settle at creekside inn for another night.
    Most B&Bs in King Salmon are breakfast only.
    Your input would be helpful for first timers in King Salmon who may need to eat dinner before their trip to camp on Saturday or if they are delayed a day by weather.
    Just a thought…
