Travel logistics between our OUTPOST camp and King Salmon are much simpler compared to our SAFARI camp. Because of the helicopter transport to/from camp and camp’s closer proximity to King Salmon, you are far less likely to experience weather-related delays (compared to the SAFARI camp or many other Alaska fly-in lodges). Under most conditions, you can expect predictable travel between camp and King Salmon on Saturdays.
To King Salmon
We prefer that guests travel all the way to King Salmon, AK and overnight the day before your departure to camp. You may stay in Anchorage that night but must arrange your air travel for the next morning for an arrival in King Salmon NO LATER THAN 10:00 a.m.
Once in King Salmon, contact our charter company, Egli Air Haul at (907) 246-3554 to let them know you have arrived in King Salmon, or you may press #20 at the airport call terminal. If you are overnighting in King Salmon, call your lodging provider for shuttle service from the airport.
The next morning, Egli Air Haul will shuttle your party to their hanger then transport you from King Salmon to the camp via helicopter. The flight is a ½ hour.
Departing King Salmon
Egli Air Haul will return for you at the end of your trip. Your flight that departs from King Salmon on that day should be arranged to leave NO EARLIER THAN 3:00 p.m.
Soft-side luggage is mandatory (two medium duffle bags is better than one large bag). Do not over pack and do not bring large hard-sided roller bags, as the helicopter has very limited cargo space. There is a strictly enforced 60 pound per person weight restriction (including rods/reels, day packs and duffel bags). Yes, you can get everything within 60 pounds. And you can safely leave extraneous items in the Egli Air Haul hanger.
We prefer that guests avoid bringing large “bazooka-type” rod carries; 3 and 4 piece fly rods and 2 piece spinning rods travel best on the helicopter.
