Our main lodge and guest log cabins are situated on 16 forested acres along the beautiful Naknek River.

After a long day of adventure, join us in our well appointed main lodge to sip on your favorite beverage, sit down to a wonderful meal, enjoy a movie or sports game on our 90 inch flatscreen TV, read a book from our collection, play cards or board games with friends, relax in front of a cozy fire, and plan your next days adventures with our experienced guides.

On your down time, wander down to the riverfront and cast out a line as there is excellent fishing from our 200 ft private dock. Leisurely kayak or paddle board right from the dock on the crystal clear waters of the Naknek river. Relax and view bears, water fowl, bald eagles, moose, the occasional sea lion, and a multitude of other wildlife from the safety of our wildlife viewing platform overlooking the river. Enjoy shooting sports? Everyone from novice to expert can head down to our trap deck overlooking the river and “break some clay”. Supervised by Gold Creek staff; all guns, clay and steel shot are provided.

Chef Amy

Amy was born in the Midwest and grew up camping, fishing, canoeing, and hiking. Always drawn to the kitchen she started cooking meals for her father around age 10. Working in the industry from a young age as a waitress then bartender she always wound up in the kitchen helping. At her step mothers’ Italian restaurant, she began learning how to make pizza dough, sauces & other Italian specialties. At 22 she left for Alaska spending the next 3 years driving across the country between Alaska and the Florida Keys.

While attending the culinary program at Art Institute Fort Lauderdale she began working at James Beard nominated Yardbird Southern Table in South Beach for Chef Jeff Mcinnis. Jeff moved to NYC to open Root & Bone and requested Amy to come to help with the opening. Once in NYC and seeing the opportunities for learning Amy worked for respected Chef Marc Myers at Cookshop one of the pioneers of farm to table movement. From there she went to Eataly and the opportunity to be involved in events like Identita with renowned Chefs Mossimo Botura and Alex Atala. In her free time she would spend time in as many kitchens as she could, trailing at ABC kitchen, Ivan Raman, O-Ya, Shalom Japan, Megu, Barrel DC to name a few.

After 5 years in the city Amy decided to take some time off and do some traveling. Seeing the opportunity to come back to Alaska and do a little fishing she joins us here at Alaska’s Gold Creek Lodge.
