The Port Vita Camp (Latitude N58o 03.86', Longitude W153o 04.63') is a year-round facility located at the site of a former herring oil refinery built in the 1930s. Some of the buildings have been remodeled and are still in use today. Remnants of old structures and machinery around the property provide an opportunity to investigate and ponder the unique history of this remote facility.
Since 1995, we have been engaged in an ongoing project of improving and adding new living quarters. All of our cabins are equipped with wood burning stoves, and will sleep one to three people comfortably making them perfect for small families or small groups of fishing companions. Each cabin also has it's own small bathroom with a flushing toilet and running water, as well as a private deck with stunning mountain and ocean views.
Our main lodge provides a central living and lounging area, perfect for getting comfortable after a successful day of fishing. There is a wide selection of movies, games to play, a bar area to mix up a cocktail, and plenty of room to just relax near the fire and read or swap stories.
The main lodge is also the place to be when hunger strikes. With a a large open kitchen and spacious dining area, you can pull up a seat at our hand crafted dining table and enjoy the generous Alaskan home cooked meals, often featuring the "catch of the day" and served family style. We use our Italian wood fired pizza oven often for preparing numerous treats, and regularly enjoy barbequeing on our custom made smoker barbeque. Enjoy the awe inspiring ocean views from inside, where the heat from the wood stove will keep you warm on the cooler Alaskan evenings. Or get yourself outside to relax on our spacious front deck where you can watch the eagles as they soar by.
