Our Guests Love The Northern Way... and so will You!

“My family has fished from Camp Esnagi for over 15 years. We missed last year to "try something new", but went back to Esnagi wanting to try again with new owners. What an improvement. The camp is beautiful, relaxing, and accommodating.”

Stewart McCabe

“I can't say enough about the service and comradery that Paul and his head guide provided on my trip. They both went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and get us on the fish and big fish! I would recommend Camp Esnagi to anyone and look forward to many, many more trips to the lodge.”

Jared Jensen

“Absolutely top notch service, owner and employees were super kind, and the fishing second to none. Would recommend this place to anyone.”
