"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - a beer in one hand, a cigarette in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming “YAHOO!

The King Ko Bar And Meditation Center

Whether you have been out commercial fishing, sport fishing, or studying Gregorian chants at the local seminary all day, you can always look forward to a break at the King Ko. Previous "entertainers" who have "performed" at the Ko have included Olivia Newton-John (hustled pool), John Denver (whined), Cheech Marin (smoked salmon), Tré Cool (beat the skins), Naknek's own Grace Slick and, of course, the Beatles (see our history page). As our new season approaches, check back here to view our monthly entertainment updates as they come together.

Be sure you attend any bar activities that might be planned during your stay in King Salmon. As you can tell from the pictures below, you will meet some very friendly - and often very unusual people - all of whom share your love of life and a kindred love of the outdoors. And now, a few selections from our photo album from recent years:
