Big Dan’s Riverfront Lodge

Big Dan’s Fishing Charters is excited to add Soldotna lodging to the list of adventures we provide.  Formerly Smokin’ Joe’s Lodge, Big Dan’s Riverfront Lodge is conveniently located 2 miles from the center of Soldotna, Alaska. We look forward to continuing the great service that Smokin’ Joe’s had provided over the last 30 years to all new and returning visitors. We will do our best to ensure that everyone who stays with us has a memorable experience. 

Enjoy the endless days soaking in the view from our incredible deck and fire pit overlooking the Kenai River. Bring your meals out to the deck and watch for wildlife that might make a showing around the property. During the evening you can share fish stories and enjoy the company of others around the large fire pit. 

Sarah, Big Dan’s better half, will welcome you upon arrival to show you around and help get you settled in. If you are scheduling a special package, your itinerary will be ready for you at the time of check in. We own and live right here. We will be here when you arrive and all during your stay, ready to assist you in any way we can.   

Check-in time: 3:00 pm | Check-out time: 11:00 am

We can customize packages as well as provide lodging only if none of these options fit your needs.
