About Us

Big Sky Charter and Fishcamp is a family owned and operated lodge, established over 40 years ago. We are now in our third generation of guides and staff and are blessed to say that the passion runs in the family blood.

We are not your typical, corporate-type Alaska fishing lodge.

We pride ourselves in knowing our guests by name, where they’re from, and making sure that their trip is full of memories that last a lifetime. We treat all our guests, whether they are first timers to Big Sky, or repeat customers, as friends and family.

Affordable and Family Friendly

Big Sky has built its business by offering affordable, family friendly Alaskan fishing adventures. Our cabins are cozy, quiet, and fully furnished with kitchens. Our guests can cook for themselves or enjoy eating out at nearby restaurants in Sterling and Soldotna. We are just 15 minutes from Soldotna with two large grocery stores.

Being on the road system means you have the freedom to travel to Alaska’s beautiful Kenai Peninsula too. Fly-in lodges leave you stranded in one spot, but from Big Sky’s central location in Sterling, we can help you see the best that Alaska has to offer. Ask us about halibut fishing, salt water combo trips, remote fly out fishing day trips, bear viewing, glacier cruises, gold panning, and day hikes.

500 Feet of Kenai River Frontage

We won’t blame you if you don’t want to leave camp though! Aside from the cozy atmosphere found around the fire pit each night, Big Sky offers a unique perk: 500 feet of Kenai River frontage. After the day is done you can flip for sockeye, cast for coho, or tempt a rainbow trout or dolly varden from our docks and fishing platforms. The staff and our guides all live on site and are ready to assist you with rods, tackle, and tips.
