Fishing Lodge on the Niukluk River

Along the banks of the Niukluk River in the heart of the Seward Peninsula, lies Alaskan NW Adventures Fishing Camp. This is a friendly place far far away from all the hurry-scurry of city life. Remote and untouched beauty surrounds you no matter what season of the year it is.

Our Camp

Your cabin is just a few feet from the river side. The bedrooms has comfortable beds and linens. The living area has a couch and a table with chairs. There is a wash house with hot showers and flush toilets. The Main Lodge is where you will have your meals.

Home-Cooked Meals Included

BJ (Toms wife of 37 years) is your hostess and will be doing all the cooking. Aside from keeping the fish camp in line she found time to raise 3 kids. We have raised our family during the summer at the camp you will be at. Now our grandchildren spend time with us at the camp.

About Us

Tom and BJ have lived in White Mountain, Alaska their whole lives. Tom has fished the river system since the early 1970's. He started a reindeer herd in the early 1980's put Tom in rural Alaska year around. In the mid 1990's the herd crashed and we decided to put our efforts into fishing and hunting. The lodge began as an Alaskan subsistence camp.

Native Alaskan Culture and Wildlife
Our Camp at Sunset

Tom and BJ’s Lodge reflects our families’ Iñupiat heritage.

We follow the traditions of hunters-gathers also known as a Subsistence living. We hunt, fish, and harvest our food by natures clock: to follow the mating seasons and migration patterns of the animals.

Through the seasons we gather native foods in the Eskimo* tradition. In the summer we pick greens, berries and cut dry fish. In the Fall, there is moose and whale hunting. We make native foods out of all we catch. In the winter, we harvest king crab though the ice with crab pots. We put a couple muskox in the freezer by March. Spring brings us into seal hunting. In mid-May, we hunt ducks and geese.

Our stories and traditions that have been handed down through the generations. We will share a slice of our life with you while you are staying at the Alaskan Northwest Adventures Camp.

*The term “Eskimo” mostly refers to Iñupiat and Yupik peoples of Alaska. In Alaska, Eskimo is in common usage according to the  Alaska Native Language Center. Today most refer to the indigenous people of Alaska as “Native Alaskan.”
