The two RV Gypsies stayed at
Long Rifle Lodge
31406 Glenn Highway (mile 102.2)
Glacier View, Alaska

July 18, 2016

Matanuska Glacier State Recreational cabin and campsites are managed by Long Rifle Lodge. There is no glacier access from the recreational site, although there is a quick view of the glacier. Long Rifle Lodge had a dining area ideally located for a casual meal before or after a visit to the glacier. The dining room featured a view of the glacier and an exhibit of mounted wildlife, including a nine-foot grizzly bear. Open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the summer and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the winter.

Wildlife exhibits inside the dining area. The menu was casual and the food was fair. Karen ordered a glass of milk and the server said that "no milk was allowed to be served at this lodge." WHAT!
