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 all of us who live here. 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.
But what sets this Alaskan “home-away-from-home” apart? Why do so many visitors frequent here?
Cooper Landing is home to the spectacular Kenai River, surrounded by natural abundance. Cooper Landing has been designated —“The Gem of the Kenai”. The beauty that surrounds Cooper Landing all year round is simply unparalleled, even in Alaska! If you stay with us at Drifters Lodge, you will see why Cooper Landing has been voted the Best Place to Live in Alaska.
The Kenai River’s baby blue waters and world-class fishing is one of the greatest assets of this town. The variety, abundance and size of the fish available in the Kenai River are unparalleled. The Kenai River is joined by a number of other natural wonders in Cooper Landing, such as, the breathtaking Chugach Mountains, the famous Russian River, The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and so much more. Cooper Landing is home to seven different types of large Alaskan mammals (Bears, wolves, Fox, coyote, Dall sheep, Mountain Goat)-no other place in Alaska can boast the potential for viewing such a variety of mammals in one place! The awesome Bald Eagles soar above the Cooper Landing area year round. The Bald Eagle is almost always visible in the sky or on a tree top somewhere.
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. In addition, the area offers scenic floats, horseback riding, nearby ocean fishing, rafting, mountain biking, hiking, bird-watching, kayaking and flight-seeing.
