The Sluice Box Bar at Clearwater Mountain Lodge

Serving the Denali Highway since 1982

Being right in line with using resources that you have in the wilderness, this bar popped up and began July 4, 1982. It was an old trailer that was refurbished and constructed into a bar. So, where exactly is it on the property? Just behind our gas station to the right.

Enjoy a quick bite to eat – burgers, brats, all beef franks, & chicken sandwiches. Or some fries and a soda! Oh – did we forget to mention ice cream or frozen novelties, we have that too! We have your drip coffee needs or latte, cappuccino & espresso – using LavAzza coffee ~ a European tradition for over 115 years!

During hunting season we keep some hot sandwiches on hand as well. Make a “dinner” reservation a day in advance to have a meal in the dining room. This is especially popular on ribeye night – leave your camp fire behind and let us pamper you!

We offer a full line of adult beverages – liquor, beer (Alaskan, domestic and import), cider, wine and bottled wine.
