“Best Spot on the River”

We’ve been Kenai Riverfront RV campers for 12 years and we think it is undoubtedly one of the best RV resort on the river. The red fishing is awesome and you’re within easy easy reach by boat of the great kings holes. This resort is also convenient to local services. Jim & Cindy & their kids have made this a wonderful family oriented resort from sing-alongs around the campfire to international volley ball games and special occasion pot-luck fish fries. Kenai Riverfront Resort is truly as enjoyable as you wish to make it!

“…Thank you so much for the wonderful (but way too short!) stay here at the Riverfront!  This was our first B&B stay and we were not too sure what to expect.  You have DEFINITELY set the standard high in our minds!  The view is incredible, the beds nice, warm & comfy and the atmosphere relaxing & friendly.  If we are ever blessed to be back in this area again, we will most certainly be back HERE!  By the way, the breakfast was awesome! ”

“…Jim & Cindy, I appreciate your hospitality.  I didn’t expect to such great service.  It’s real wonderful your Riverfront Suite!!  I love sauna.  It made me heal & relax.  It was “Gokuraku, Gokuraku” which means “Heaven”!  Thank you for dressing a salmon.  Your skill is kind of Japanese Sushi craftsman!!  It was nice exploration.  Besides you made us smoked salmon…it might be great fabulous memory in my life!  Thank you.”

“…Jim & Cindy, I’m finally taking some time out to send out a letter, thanking you and your family for the great time we had this last summer.My family, (including the folks) enjoyed every moment while staying at your place. The atmosphere was, relaxing and enjoyable throughout the whole time we were there. If Jim only knew how much I appreciated having a BBQ while camping, he would make it a center piece in his advertisement. The evenings were so relaxing just sitting around with the folks and visiting, while taking the kids out on the banks fishing and being able to spend some quality time with them.  Your culture of safe camping, brought a sense of comfort to Mary and I, especially because of our two young children. We have traveled to many a “fish camp” during our vacations in Alaska, and have always had to put up with other campers that had no consideration of others, or concerns for safety.  These qualities are recognized, and greatly appreciated. Not only was the visit to your place enjoyable, it was also relaxing!   My folks both enjoyed themselves tremendously while they were there. Mom caught a 63 pound King, Dad pulled in a 45 pound King, and of course, we caught plenty of Reds from the shore.”

“…even though we’re only spending one night in your Riverfront Suite, the time has been wonderful.  Your home on the river is beautiful!  Thanks for helping the guy from Brooklyn to catch his first salmon.  He plans on being up early to fish before we leave in the morning.  We’ve already discussed coming back next year and spending a few days with you..We’ll get NY’s famous Peter Luger Steak Sauce out to you as soon as we get home!  Thanks again!  P.S. Brian loved his Japanese breakfast with his fresh caught salmon.”
