|About Solo Creek
Solo Creek is a unique, remote and spectacular place. It sits at the head waters of the White River in the Wrangell Saint Elias National Park and Preserve. The Solo creek area has been a hunting camp and a place to provide shelter to weary travels since the mid 1800’s. At one time it was a camp for the hardy, brave individuals who hauled mail from the mining towns of Chisana to McCarthy and was a route for ancient travelers going to and from Alaska and Canada.
If you want to step back in time, pick up a copy of the book “Alaska Yukon Trophies Won and Lost” by G. O Young. He describes this area in exquisite detail and when you hunt with us you will see many of the areas he hunted in which inspired his book.
Our camp has a main “no frills” cabin which provides a rustic up stairs with client accommodations for sleeping. a kitchen for cooking wonderful home cooked meals as well as a sitting area for relaxing. We also have a shower house. If you have special needs you only have to let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate those needs.
Solo Creek is extremely remote and is in a pristine area of Alaska. You will often see wild game from camp and the lakes in this area offer tremendous Arctic Grayling fishing.
To get to Solo Creek you will need to rent a vehicle in Anchorage or Fairbanks Alaska and drive to Tok, Nabesna or McCarthy Alaska. Prior to coming to Alaska you will need to make arrangements to “book” a flight to and from Solo Creek. Remember you will want to make sure your plane reservations are “changeable” as the weather in the Wrangell Mountains can change dramatically in a very short period of time. It is possible to get “weathered in” for a week or longer. You will want to be sure that the folks at home are aware of this to prevent undo worry. We do have a satellite phone for use in emergencies. If you feel the need to communicate with your family on a frequent basis you can rent a satellite phone in Anchorage, Alaska or use our phone at a rate $1.45 per minute for non-emergency calls. If you need assistance with arranging bush plane reservations we will be more than happy to help you. The more advance notice the better.
