Featured Accommodations on the Kenai River
Staying on the Kenai River is an experience in itself, but location location location is so vitally important to a GREAT Kenai River experience. Ideally a low bank height provides the best fishing conditions for Red Salmon (sockeye) and Silver Salmon (coho) fishing, yielding perfect water conditions for both. The first 21 river miles from the ocean offer access to fresh-from-the-ocean salmon that are of the highest possible quality! That’s also right in the heart of the best King Salmon (chinook) fishing on the Lower Kenai River…where the 20 hottest King Salmon fishing hotspots are either within sight (Sunken Island, Poacher’s Cove, Harry Gaines Quarter Mile, Slide Hole, Airplane, Big Eddy) or just a short boat ride down river (Stewart’s, Falling In Hole, The Pillars, Eagle Rock, Beaver Creek, Mud Island, The Pasture and more), and the world record 98 pound 4 ounce King Salmon was caught by Les Anderson of Soldotna.
The peacefulness of waking each morning to the sounds of bald eagles calling each other, salmon splashing as they prepare to spawn upriver, and the therapeutic hum of fishermen casting their lines into the beautiful turquoise waters of the Kenai is truly paradise for those who love the great outdoors.
These are sights & sounds reserved for you on the lower Kenai River! While the conveniences of town aren’t far away, you’d never know it from the peace & tranquility you feel here on the river. Don’t be lured into staying at a discount place off the river, where the only sights you’ll see are traffic, run down properties with junk piles, crowded public fishing areas and pesky mosquitos. Experience the Alaska you’ve been dreaming of!
