Following is a brief overview of the travel logistics to and from camp. For further details please carefully read our “Travel & Logistics” information sheet, which we will send to you via email or regular mail.
To King Salmon
We prefer that guests travel all the way to King Salmon, AK and overnight the Friday before your departure to camp. You may stay in Anchorage Friday night but must arrange your air travel for the next morning (Saturday) for an arrival in King Salmon NO LATER THAN 10:00 a.m. If you choose to arrive in King Salmon Saturday morning, your departure to camp that day may be delayed. Please inquire for more details.
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 Friday, call your lodging provider for shuttle service from the airport.
The next morning (Saturday), Egli Air Haul will shuttle your party to their hanger then transport you from King Salmon to the camp via bush plane and/or helicopter. The flight is 1 to 1½ hours and 3 round-trips are typically required to get all guests and gear to/from camp.
In 2010 we added a helicopter as part of our standard charter aircraft fleet. This is a HUGE advantage in more reliably and consistently getting you to/from camp during poor weather days. The weather conditions on the Alaska Peninsula can be notoriously challenging, but now you don’t have to worry so much about getting stuck in King Salmon or at camp. Worry less, fish more!
Departing King Salmon
Egli Air Haul will return for you the following Saturday. Your flight that departs from King Salmon on that Saturday should be arranged to leave NO EARLIER THAN 4:30 p.m.
Please bring “soft” luggage (two medium duffel bags are much better than one large bag) and do not over pack, as these specialized aircraft have limited cargo space. There is a strictly enforced 50 pound per person weight restriction, including rods/reels, day packs and duffel bags. Yes, you can get everything within 50 pounds. And you can safely leave extraneous items in the Egli Air Haul hanger.
