Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge Activities

Located at Cooper Landing on the Kenai Peninsula, the Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge stands near the confluence of the Russian and Kenai Rivers, site of the most fantastic salmon fishing in all of Alaska.

The lodge is the base for many wilderness activities and the starting point for the scenic drive to Seward, gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park.

Cooper Landing was first settled by the Kenaitze Indians, who set up fish camps along the upper Kenai River. More recently, Cooper Landing was the site of the first gold discovery in Alaska in 1848, the year before the California Gold Rush. Early Russians discovered the gold but proved more interested in the fur trade.

From Cooper Landing, the Kenai River flows 75 miles before entering Cook Inlet. World-famous salmon and trout fisheries, scenic float trips and hiking trails are all located just a short distance from the Lodge’s front door.
