What our guest have to say....

Dear Everyone At The Maclaren River Lodge,

I was able to fulfill a 20+ year dream this past August.  I first saw the Maclaren River Lodge in 1995 during my first trip to Alaska.  This trip North I was able to stay at your lodge and go grayling fishing up the Maclaren River.  I've been to Alaska over a dozen times and this was one of the very best outdoor experiences of my life.  A big thank you to everyone at your lodge.  All of you contributed to me having a super time there.  I hope to stay at your place again.

We made our first trip to Alaska in June of 2018 and were excited to have the opportunity to travel on the Denali Highway. We were out among the moose, caribou and grizzly bear.

We stayed at the Maclaren River Lodge in the Aurora Cabin on June 15th. It was a stormy day and there was not internet service but that just made our stay more quiet and enjoyable. The cabin was spacious with an awesome view. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the food and service was awesome. Although small, the bar served the purpose well.

We would recommend Maclaren River Lodge to anyone who is not looking for spending the night in the great outdoors in a cabin. We will definitely return to the lodge on our next trip back and will want to stay in the new cabins that were being built.

Hello Alan and Susie
And staff......

I just wanted to thank you all for a pleasant weekend at your lodge, never being on the Denali Hwy before in the 37 years I have lived in Alaska was a true delight.
The beauty of that country is well beyond amazing....Both you and your staff made me feel at home and very comfortable during the stay. The food was great, plentiful and at a modest price.
Some of the other guests were so entertaining as well and I was happy to fit right in at Maclaren River Lodge. Hoping to see you this winter in Fairbanks.

Will be posting on Trip Advisor next😎


I stayed at your remote camp a few weeks ago and had such an incredible time. Thank you so much! You have done such an amazing job with the camp. I hope more people can experience your camp! Thanks again!

I wanted to thank you for the excellent stay. You will be seeing more of me
on and off duty. I am still learning the ropes around here and I hope to
take some time this summer to bring my wife and stay with you all again.

I was not sure if you had any place to put a review but if I could be
quoted, here you go...

"The food was great and the company greater. You have to experience the
excellent staff, patrons, and breathtaking views at The Maclaren Lodge."

Thanks again,
