Bear viewing lodges are located wherever bears fish, forage, or gather. The magnificent creatures may wander right through camp, or you may have to take a short hike (or boat ride) to see them. You can spend as little as 1 night, but we recommend 2 nights or more at your wilderness lodge; if you tire of the bears you can go hiking, canoeing, fishing, or take advantage of other activities.
A typical day of bear viewing includes a short hike to the viewing location, hours of photographing bears, then a return to the lodge for a gourmet home-cooked meal and cozy accommodations.
There's no better base for a fishing trip in Katmai than Brooks Lodge. Overlooking the river, the lodge has been run by the same family for over 60 years, so they really know the fishing here. It's not a fully-guided lodge, so you'll find affordable rates. You can also hire a guide if you want, or use their transportation services to get to remote lakes and rivers, or fish on your own. If you’re looking to explore the area, Brooks Lodge also offers bear viewing opportunities.
