Kasilof Beach Road

You’ll either enjoy a peaceful walk through a secluded and beautiful estuary ripe with birdlife—or have a ringside seat at the annual salmon dipnetting extravaganza, featuring hordes of crazed locals armed with 10-foot poles. The beach road emerges from the forest at a river-mouth lined by dunes, tidally influenced beach, an estuary and broad salt marsh. The woods to the north and south offer a chance to view bald eagles and moose. Several distinct habitats occur within a few hundred yards of the river mouth due to the dramatic change with each tide.The mouth of the Kasilof River was once used by Dena’ina Natives to gather and dry salmon.
