Cooper Landing boasts awesome fishing grounds on the Kenai River. Find fishing on the cottage's private waterfront property (fish for trout yearlong or silver salmon in the late summer/fall). Salmon fishing during the mid-summer months is best downriver a few miles at the confluence of the Russian/Kenai Rivers. You will find a small passenger ferry and boat ramp/fishing access area with fee parking there. You will also find private bank fishing at various 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 are 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.

Cooper Landing is a great 'home base' or 'jumping off' point to other places of interest on the Kenai Peninsula.

Opportunity to take fun daytrips to other points of interest include:

Short drive to either Seward or Kenai/Soldotna/Ninilchick/Homer to go sightseeing, shopping, fresh/salt water fishing, fly fishing.

Clamming during summer months during low tides in Clam Gulch/Ninilchick area approx 90 minute drive from Cooper Landing.

Two hour drive to Homer, Alaska.

Seward (35 minutes drive) has shopping, salt water fishing, glacier tours, Kenai Fiord tours, horseback riding, visit an Iditarod sledding team tour and an aquarium as well as many restaurants.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: During our annual trips to Alaska, we fell in LOVE with Cooper Landing Alaska. It's right in the middle the Alaskan recreation area and fishing hub.. And, it's so gorgeous! Alaska's call Cooper Landing the 'Lake Tahoe' area of the North. Only 102 miles outside of Anchorage and easy commute to other major cities on the Kenai Peninsula like Homer, Seward, Kenai, Soldotna, Ninilchick, and Hope.

Why the Owner Chose Cooper Landing, AK, USA:
We chose Cooper Landing because of it's beauty, the river and because it's a quaint small town close to everything else.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There's literally so much to do either in Cooper Landing or nearby. Whether you just want to sit back, relax, stay put and 'read a book' or stay on the move, your options abound! Nearby rafting/kayaking companies or guided fishing outfitters can take you on a breathtaking scenic boat ride down the Kenai River where you may see an abundance of wildlife (possibly even a bear!) Horsebackriding opportunities in Cooper Landing with the Alaskan Horseman's Adventures. Many public hiking trails provide ample opportunity for the most activive traveler. Take an private air or helicopter tour to see the Valley of the Glaciers from nearby Seward airport. Fish for a 'barn door sized' halibut from either Seward or Homer. Fish your heart out in the Kenai River and beat the record for the World's largest freshwater caught King Salmon!
