Daniels Lake Lodge's  acreage is wrapped around the cove at the lower right end of the lake. It encompasses the two short roads from Halbouty Rd to the center of the lake cove (Drift Cir and Scotty's Ct). The photo you see at the top of this page shows a third of one arm of the lake.


Daniels Lake has no public access so it stays quiet most of the time. Each leg of the lake is about two miles long, total is shoreline 10 miles, In one area, the lake is 110 feet deep, average depth is 30-50 feet. At the shoreline In front of us, it's shallow gravel where salmon like to spawn in late summer. At the end of the dock, depth is just above an adult's head.

The lake is spring fed & creates Daniels Creek which empties into Bishop Creek which flows into Cook Inlet near the entrance to Captain Cook State Recreation Area, about 6 miles north of us. Red (sockeye) salmon follow the creeks to to spawn at our shoreline in late summer.


Daniels Lake is so healthy lake that it has a wonderful population of native rainbow trout. Registered guests may rent a boat or canoe and use fishing rods for free. Each log room has a full kitchen gas BBQ to cook your fresh fish.
