Directions to the Lodge
We are located in a remote area of Delta Junction (shown on the following map). For directions from Fairbanks or Anchorage, click on the following drop downs. For more detailed directions, click on the button below and you will be directed to Google Maps.
From Fairbanks: Go south from Fairbanks to Delta Junction, Alaska for 1.5 hours. The last place to eat or buy any personal items is in Delta Junction before you travel to the lodge, another 38 miles south on Highway , so get what you might need, top off your tank, and come south along the Delta River to your home away from home. You will see the “round mountain” on the right hand side, called, “Donnelly Dome”. Keep your eye open for caribou. Just past “Donnelly Dome” are two wonderful pull-outs, the first being the Alyeska Pipeline viewing pullout and the next is the overlook over the Delta River and the Alaska Range. Mt. Hayes will be visible in the distance! You should see a lot of moose along this drive so take your time. The last ten miles to the lodge from Ruby Creek on is 55 mph. The bridge before the lodge is “one Mile Creek” and you will see the old roadhouse at mile 227.4 first with the lodge up on the bluff. We have a sign and orange cones at the bottom of the driveway. Come around to the mountain side of the lodge to find the entrance.
approximate travel time 5-6 hours: Take a right at Palmer off the Glenn Highway, then take a right at Glennallen on the Richardson Highway (Highway 4) and drive 2 hours north and you there! The bridge just before the lodge is named “One Mile Creek” and the lodge will be just past the bridge on your right with orange piling cones at the base of the driveway.. It is sometimes easy to miss because of the bluff hiding the lodge. Remember to watch your mile markers as we are located at mile 227.4 on the Richardson Highway. This is wide open country. You will enjoy the Rainbow Mountains and amazing views of the Eastern Alaska Range en route to the lodge! Watch for sheep sightings!
