Make Cooper Landing Your Home Base for Kenai Peninsula Exploration

Cooper Landing is a premier Alaska destination, not only for visitors from around the world, but also for our Alaskan neighbors. The Kenai Peninsula is referred to as “Alaska’s Playground” by Alaskan residents. Why? Because Cooper Landing offers much more than your average Alaskan destination.

Cooper Landing on the Mighty Kenai River

Cooper Landing is home to the easily accessible yet mighty Kenai River, ripe with natural abundance. Cooper Landing is known by a very descriptive and quite fitting name—“The Gem of the Kenai”. The beauty that surrounds Cooper Landing all year round is simply unparalleled, even in Alaska!

But what sets this Alaskan “home-away-from-home” apart? Why do so many visitors frequent here?

The mighty Kenai River’s beauty is the greatest asset of this town and it is joined by a number of other natural wonders, including the baby-blue waters of the Kenai itself, the breathtaking Chugach Mountains, the famous Russian River and so much more. Better still, this beautiful natural habitat is home to scores of fish and animals. In fact, Cooper Landing is home to eight different types of Alaskan mammals-no other place in Alaska can boast the potential for viewing such a variety of mammals in one place! Lastly, the awesome Bald Eagles soar above the Cooper Landing area year round.

Cooper Landing is not just a picturesque town to take in with your eyes-the area offers many great recreational activities, too. Fishing is the primary draw to Cooper Landing’s lodges and hotels. In addition, the area offers horseback riding, nearby ocean fishing, rafting, mountain biking, hiking, bird-watching, and flight-seeing. Drifters Lodge is the best home-base for you to experience it all!
