We had a great time in the lodge. Eric and Heather were fantastic folks. Eric started our stay with a personal tour of the lodge, Bettles and the nearby community of Evansville. Very informative and interesting. We stayed at the Aurora section of the lodge. Room was quiet and comfortable. The staff to a person was always attentive, friendly and helpful. We can't say enough positives about the resident bush pilot Kevin. Safety first, he was personable and approachable. Great flight into Gates of the Arctic National Park. A must see. Take the raft trip down to old Bettles if you can. The ghost town is super interesting and the float down is wonderful.
