We Loved Red Eagle Lodge in Alaska

by Pam on August 29, 2011

I don’t usually write a post about a specific place where we stayed during our travels as we have stayed at so many places that it would get old really fast.  However, I wanted to highlight Red Eagle Lodge as I thought it was one of the better places we camped during our road trip.

Red Eagle Lodge is located in Chistochina, Alaska and it is run by Richard and Judy Dennis.  We stopped at  a gas station nearby, and while pumping gas, Richard came to talk to my husband and he told us about his lodge.  It was perfect timing as we had been wondering where we would stay for the night.

For just $13 you can pitch your tent, use the firewood to make a fire, and enjoy their beautiful bathhouse.  The bathhouse is so clean and well put together that you will feel like a hundred bucks after using their showers.  Rather than the grungy coin operated showers that we have gotten used to, this bathhouse made us feel like we were staying in a five star hotel.

We also had access to the Internet during our stay, and Judy kindly offered to lend us a board game or a video if we wanted to entertain ourselves.  They also offered the use of their bicycles if we wanted to bike one of the nearby trails.  We felt right at home during our stay at their lodge and we were really grateful.  This made our first night in Alaska truly enjoyable.

If you are not into tent camping, you also can park your RV at their lodge for $18.  You can also rent one of their cozy cabins.  Folks with tents and RVs have the option of having breakfast for $5 each.  Cabins with a private bath and kitchen cost $110 (based on double occupancy).  Cabins with shared bathrooms and showers cost $85-$95.  Breakfast is included.  For more information, check out their website at www.redeaglelodge.net or call them at 907-822-5299.
