Cooper Landing

Cooper Landing located at the north end of Kenai Lake and just 100 miles (160 km) south of Anchorage is a popular summer tourist destination thanks to its scenic wilderness and proximity to the world-class salmon fishery of the Kenai River and Russian River.

Experience Alaksa fishing at its best. Guides take clients to pursue sockeye and coho salmon, Dolly Varden and rainbow trout in the upper Kenai River and the nearby Russian River.

Cooper Landing is also a popular starting point for raft trips down the Kenai River with a number of outfitters offering raft trips ranging from gentle floats to thrilling Class III whitewater in the Kenai Canyon.

After a day on the water, anglers and rafters alike can return to Cooper Landing, which features a wide range of lodging, restaurants and other visitor services.

The heart of town is a five-building national historic district at Mile 48.7 of the Sterling Highway. In a picturesque setting beneath towering mountains and along the banks of the Kenai River is an old post office, a schoolhouse from the 1950s and a homesteader’s cabin that today houses the Cooper Landing Historical Society Museum.
