Cooper Landing

Cooper Landing is a picturesque community nestled in a wooded mountain valley at the north end of Kenai Lake and is famed for its superb salmon fishing.

Set along the Russian and Kenai Rivers, this settlement was first discovered by Joseph Cooper and is home to great wilderness and nicknamed the Emerald for its turquoise-tinged glacial waters. Visitors flock to the area to witness the exciting salmon run and spot bears.
What it lacks in physical size, this modest destination in the heart of the Kenai Peninsula makes up for in its selection of recreational activities. Delight in hiking, horseback riding, camping, or rafting, just to name a few - there is plenty to explore in this road-side hamlet.

For a complete Alaska experience, consider adding Denali National Park to your vacation itinerary.  Home to North America’s tallest peak, Alaska’s iconic wildlife, and over 6 million acres of wilderness, it is truly a destination not to miss.
