A riverside location and immaculate grounds make this the most unique campground near Cooper Landing: you can step out of your RV and cast a line for salmon! You’ll find 28 RV sites, tent sites, and six inexpensive B&B rooms, all right on the banks of the Kenai River. Fish for famed Kenai River sockeye, then grill your catch at your site’s fire ring. The entire operation is professionally managed, with friendly staff and well-kept grounds. Plus, campground guests get up to $15 off the company’s river float and fishing trips!
Just off the Sterling Highway, this campground is easily accessible and quiet. You’ll find riverside RV spots that open to great views of the Chugach Mountains. Most sites have picnic tables, fire rings, 20/30-amp electric hookups and water, and the campground has clean bathrooms with hot showers, complimentary morning coffee, a fish-cleaning station, and freezer space for your fish. There’s a viewing platform overlooking the river, where you can look for moose or bald eagles, and there are a few fishing holes within walking distance. You may not catch your limit, but you can wet the line whenever you feel like it.
The six-room B&B, in a log building, is strictly no-frills, but you’ll find clean, comfortable rooms with one double bed and one twin bed. While they may be basic, you won’t find more affordable lodging in the area—there’s even a continental breakfast. It’s the perfect choice for hardcore fishermen and adventurers who want a warm, clean, affordable room to return to in the evening.
And because the campground is just off the highway, it’s a great base for exploring the Kenai. Hop on the highway for easy access to the town of Cooper Landing or other fishing spots and hiking trails. Or settle in for a night around the fire ring, listening to the gentle rush of the Kenai River.
