With the current uncertain times of COVID-19, our Creekbend Team is taking measures to help support and protect our small community of Hope, Alaska.

Both the market and cafe will remain open with limited hours to support local residents. Per mandate, the cafe is open for take-out orders only. We are making extra efforts to limit exposure and spare as many supply trips to Anchorage as possible for folks. Residents can request any general or specific grocery items needed at Coldwater Market. We are also offering delivery of both groceries and take-out orders for the Hope and Sunrise area moving forward. 

Until further notice, we will not be announcing any summer events. Future reservations for the campground and lodge can still be booked online. We will be posting any new updates on Facebook, as more information becomes available.

We appreciate your tremendous support through this difficult time!

Your trip to Hope, Alaska will be one you will never forget!


Hope is a historic mining town, founded in the late 1800's. The discovery of gold in Six Mile Creek set off one of Alaska's first gold rushes. Within a year, more than 3000 miners settled in the area. 


Hope, Alaska hasn't changed much since the gold rush ended. Today, Hope is a quiet and historic trip back through time. Hope is what visitors to Alaska envision the state to look like - mountain views, wooded surroundings, log cabins, unique cafes and friendly people. The year round population is anywhere between 150 and 250, depending on who you ask. The Hope School is K-12, and it has about 15 children.


The natural area provides an epic place for outdoor enthusiasts to travel, year round. Rafting, fishing, hiking, skiing and more. We ask those visiting Hope to acknowledge our historical and natural significance and go out of your way to respect the land and community. Pick up trash, even if its not yours, respect private property, drive slowly in town, and perhaps donate to a local cause to help support keeping Hope clean, beautiful and a one-of-a-kind Alaska town!

Hope. Small Town. Big Adventure.
