Dan and Kim were awesome, the gear was in great shape and they went out of their way to work around our logistics and schedule. Small details can make or break a big trip, and Kodiak Kamps really came through. We will definitely be back!!

Kim and Dan,
Thanks again for the boat rental on my Kodiak Bear hunt this spring. Sending you pictures of the impressive bear we harvested. Not having a lot of experience with inflatable style boats, I was pleasantly surprised how easy the boat was to assemble and operate. I'm convinced that having one of your boats to get around the lake was a big factor in the success of our hunt. Your service was outstanding and the process of checking in/out was hassle free. I look forward to using your services for my next Kodiak adventure.
All the equipment that we used worked perfectly. The tent was the right size for the two of us with cots. There was plenty of room to store our gear. We never did use the table you guys provided for us because we thought it would make it difficult to move around the tent. As for the tent keeping us dry I really can't provide too much feedback because somehow we managed not to get rained on for more than 5 min over the whole week we were there.
Kodiak Kamps thank you so much for helping us on our recent successful elk hunt! As usual you went above and beyond with providing us the best working equipment, friendly service, and hassle free pickup/drop off. We appreciated that you had every thing ready to go for us at Andrew Airways so we could catch flight safely/quickly to Afognak since the weather was coming in.
We very much appreciated having the bear fences available after we got our elk since we spotted a few bears in the area. It also gave us some ease of mind knowing had them since we decided to bring our two year old hunting with us!
We look forward to renting from you again on our next adventure! Thanks again! Your the best!”

Hi Dan and Kim,
James and I really enjoyed our dinner with you!! The steaks and salmon were certainly a treat for us after a week of freeze dried food. Thanks for sharing your passion for beachcombing, your treasures are certainly unique, Kim. I will find a special place for the Japanese net float in my house. Give Sofie a pet for us.

Hello Dan and Kim,
Thank you for all the advice and great equipment for our hunt. All the equipment was in great shape and clean. Everything worked flawlessly from the camping gear to the boat and outboard. I highly recommend anyone coming to Kodiak to use your gear and not pay to have theirs brought up. Was very nice to have all gear delivered and picked up at the air service. Kim was nice enough to throw in a couple extra pieces of gear that made our time in the field even more comfortable. I will for sure be using Kodiak Kamps on my next trip to Kodiak.
Thanks again for a great experience with Kodiak Kamps' Seamax inflatable and Yamaha outboard as well as dropping them with our transporter prior to our arrival. They were in great condition and performed flawlessly during our hunt. In the end, they were key to our successful hunt given the rugged terrain in Spiridon Bay. With the raft we were able to take a 10'+ bear that from skull measurements (28 4/16') will likely qualify B&C. Attached is a picture.
Also, small world story but I understand you know my neighbor Greg Deal who lives directly across the street from us. He had very kind words for both you and your wife.
Thanks again for the great experience and please feel free to use me as a reference!
All the best,
Hi Dan and Kim,
The gear you provided was everything we could have hoped for. The tent was perfect for the unpredictable Kodiak weather. Boat and motor worked very well and was instrumental in getting us on the fish. When traveling from Denver it is nice to know everything we asked for is ready to go. Looking forward to more trips with you in the future.
Thanks Leonard Eartle
I wanted to THANK YOU again for the outstanding service and supplies provided to us during our recent hunt. I have to admit I was a little nervous about renting equipment for the hunt which we were undertaking. I quickly learned that we had nothing to worry about as you had obviously put a lot of time and effort into ensuring our equipment was in good running order. To top it off, you even had it delivered to and picked up from our air taxi. Your customer service was top notch and hassle free! I will absolutely utilize your services again on my next Kodiak adventure!
All the best,
Thanks for the outstanding customer service! The Kodiak Condo tents held up to extremely high winds and didn't let in a drop of water. I was skeptical about the bear fence, but after we had meat hanging I was VERY glad to have it. All your gear was clean and top notch, hope I get the chance to rent from you again!
I didn't take any pictures, forgot the camera, but the equipment worked as billed and I had zero problems with it. The heater and propane set-up was great. The 8hp motor was fine for the small boat. No missing equipment. The service on arrival was good as usual. Sending you some pictures of my son and I with bears we took at Uganik Lake. Both times we used Kodiak Kamps boats and /or tents and equipment.
I was just up there with Jon Bossert hunting. I want to thank you guys so much for your help. I had the time of my life. I hope to make it back up there next year.
Thanks for all you care and we love to know people like you. With love from our 3 and we hope to meet you again next year. We hope to camp again for about 3 weeks somewhere in the bay of the Katmai Coast and to use your equipment again. Thanks for your stories and welcome to us and for the use of all your material. We were lucky in that big storm at Katmai that we had good stuff with us. We have some pictures of the Kodiak Condo and will send them to you when we get back to the Netherlands.

Dan and Kim,
Thanks for the bear fence. We weren't sure how much we would need it, but waking up in the morning to see those big tracks around camp changed our minds. The fence performed just as we had hoped. We appreciated all the help you gave us.
My Name is Mark Smith. This past spring I harvested my Kodiak brown bear with my 60 lb Hoty Satori take down recurve. This was my 3rd spring hunt and I got him on the last day of a ten day hunt at 25 yards complete pass threw. We have used your rafts all three hunts and every thing worked great. Without a good raft & motor I would have never gotten my bear.
Thank you for your top notch gear & service.

Wanted to thank you again for all the help with the raft and chairs for our hunt. You are great to work with, and I look forward to using your service in the future. Here are a few pictures for you....
Thanks again for meeting us with the phone, etc. Really appreciate the good service.
Kim and Dan,
Renting a camp from Kodiak Kamps is the only way to go when hunting in Kodiak! Thanks to Kodiak Kamps I stayed dry, warm, and worry free on my recent brown bear hunt. All of the equipment was durable, reliable, and well maintained. Thanks to Kim and Dan we were safe from bears when they traveled into our camp twice (bear fences really do work), and warm when the weather started to turn. Not to forget that Kim let us use a shovel, bucket, and dome tent for free... All things we were very thankful to have in the field! Thanks again Kim and Dan for going above and beyond with the customer service! You helped make it a trip of a lifetime!

We had an awesome trip and all your gear worked out flawlessly! Thank you for your assistance and preparation. Without the boat, success would have been very difficult. Thank you! I'll send you photos and feel free to post them.
Dan and Kim,
This was another great hunt of the many we've done on Kodiak Island. Thanks again for hooking us up with top notch equipment. As usual, you had everything ready to go and even went the extra mile to get us a satellite phone at the last minute. All the gear worked wonderfully and we were able to weather a couple of brutal storms and get back out on the hunt. It was a tough hunt but we managed to harvest a couple of goats. I look forward to coming back to Kodiak year after year...see you next year!
Thanks Kim and Dan for your friendly and hospitable service. the SAT phone package your provided for my remote hunt was perfect, compact, waterproof and reliable! it was great to have that lifeline and ability to contact the air service company and others if need be. Thanks so much for your flexibility in meeting us at the float plane basin for delivery. You run a great outfit and I'll definitely be giving you a call next season.
