This was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend R and M Rustic River Camp. Our little riverside dry cabin was so cozy and beautiful. Outhouse was comfortable and clean. The only thing we were sad about was having to leave without saying goodbye to our hosts who were wonderful.

Staying at missy and randys cabin was the real highlight of our trip and we HIGHLY recommend it, from the grade A+ customer service to the built in white noise machine (the creek) by our bed at night and the extremely convenient location to the chena hot springs we had an amazing time and only regret not booking a longer stay, but we will be coming back on future trips. Like most good things in alaska, the cabin is a little bit of a drive off the beaten path however missy, randy, their adorable dog bailey and quaint cabin by the river are well worth the drive.

This rustic cabin experience is the best deal you’ll find, period. The two hosts quickly became life long friends and were incredibly accommodating and friendly. We drank beers with them around the fire 2 out of our 3 nights. They have several amenities that are not listed. The cabin is adorable and warm. You can sleep with the door open to the sound of the river as there is a mosquito net. Don’t pass this place up... it’s the best you’re gonna get!
