A server refills a glass of wine for a table of people on an outside deck.

Take in the views of the Alaska Range from the deck.

With Alaskan beers on tap, 50 bottles of wine, and a full bar (including spirits from the Alaska Distillery), the Base Camp Bar, is a great place to grab a drink before having dinner in the adjacent North Fork Restaurant. Try a margarita made with wild Alaska blueberry vodka, a perfect drink for a sunny afternoon on the big deck, which features great views of the Alaska Range. You can order appetizers, or select from the lunch and dinner menus with their pub-style food and lots of fresh seafood.

The décor features beautiful wood timbers and vaulted ceilings. It’s decorated with Alaskan art and has flat-screen TVs and bar seating.

It draws a big crowd for lunch—folks who want something a bit smaller than 20,320 (the other restaurant at the lodge serving lunch). The fish and chips, hand-dipped in an Alaska Amber beer batter, is a huge hit at both lunch and dinner. For something a little lighter, consider the Alaskan salmon BLT.

It’s also a great spot for a cocktail or a drink with appetizers (try the chili or house-made crab cakes) before heading next door for dinner.

The bar has an extensive wine list, with a selection of 50 bottles, plus plenty of local beers on tap and Princess’s signature drinks, like the margaritas and mojitos. Sip a sweet iced drink on the deck and soak up views of the Alaska Range.
