Cooper Landing has fishing, either on the river right in front of our place, primarily for trout yearlong or Silver Salmon later in the summer/fall. Salmon fishing mid summer is available down river a few miles at the confluence of the Russian/Kenai Rivers. There is a person 'ferry' and boat ramp/fishing access area with fee parking there. You can also find other, private bank fishing at other locations when the fish are running. Typically, there's always fabulous trout fishing year round in the Kenai river and its tributaries. Private, for hire guides are available during the summer months.
Rafting down the Upper Kenai is a FABULOUS daytrip. There are a couple of Rafting outfitters in Cooper Landing.
Horseback riding is also available in Cooper Landing. There's also many public hiking trails. During the height of summer, try the Russian River trail to the falls for the possibility of seeing Brown/Black bear fishing for salmon.
There are several GREAT restaurants in the area, a small grocery store and some great little gift shops as well in Cooper Landing.
