An Outdoor Barbeque Music Jam

Easy to social distance in the clean mountain air!
July 2020

We have cancelled the Barbecue Music Jam on July 3rd and 4th due to the spike in COVID cases in Alaska. We decided not to take a chance, and keep safety as a priority this summer. We are still open to the public but require reservations so we can keep our social distancing protocols so remember to call ahead.

Happy Birthday America! Be well and follow the rules so we can all come out on the other side of this wildfire, whole, happy and healthy.

About the Lodge

The Lodge at Black Rapids, located in Alaska in the heart of the Alaska Range, accessible by highway or air, is a year-round “Alaska Luxury Lodge & Adventures” and home of the historic Rapids Roadhouse. It is a beautiful facility that sits atop a bluff overlooking Black Rapids Glacier and the Delta River in “Alaska’s Last Frontier.”  

The lodge is owned by Annie and Mike Hooper who are hands-on owners, overseeing every aspect of the Lodge’s operations and your onsite hosts. The Hoppers began construction on the new lodge in the summer of 2001 with the idea of preserving a piece of Alaska’s pioneer part and a new commitment to creating a new tradition of accommodations as a gateway to the wilderness of Alaska and the frontier of the north. The two-story timber-frame lodge is the essence of their imagination and plans for showcasing Alaska using  local timbers and showcasing Alaskan artists’ works displayed throughout the lodge.

The Lodge at Black Rapids provides fantastic year-round adventures, exquisite gourmet meals, abundant wildlife, glorious northern lights exhibits and so much more. Accommodations include ten private, ensuite guest rooms, each uniquely designed and decorated with luxury comforts ensuring an excellent and deep sleep for every guest. Outside you will find easy access to hiking trails, a river walk or simply enjoy a relaxing afternoon sitting on the deck absorbing the beauty of Alaska.

We can host special events such as Corporate Parties, Conferences, Retreats, Reunions, Family Celebrations, Weddings, Honeymoons, Anniversaries, Private Events and of course vacationers looking for a spectacular experience. Customer service is the number one priority. The team at the Lodge at Black Rapids treats every guest as if they are family.
