Klondike RV Park is located approximately 150 miles south of Anchorage, in Soldotna, AK – The heart of the Kenai Peninsula. We are one block from the Kenai River and less than 5 minutes from downtown Soldotna.
Our campground, with its unique location, backs up to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. This enormous tract of forests and lakes (nearly 2 million acres) occupies much of the Kenai Peninsula and offers over 200 miles of hiking trails. The Refuge Visitor Center is within a few miles of the campground.
The trip from Anchorage to the end of the road at either Seward or Homer is considered one of the top 25 most Scenic Highways in the U.S. There are 32 miles of mountain scenery, mountain streams, wooded mountains, mountain meadows and steep canyons. The Kenai itself is regarded by Alaskans as a priceless jewel.
From Anchorage to Soldotna you will pass by the Turnagain Arm, Potter Point State Game Refuge, Chugach State Park, Beluga Point (where you can spot Beluga whales), Alyeska Resort (with a ski lift in summer that takes you to the top where you can see 7 glaciers), Twenty Mile River, Portage Glacier and Summit Lakes. Then you take Highway 1 cut-off toward Soldotna and Homer and go through Cooper Landing and over the bridge that links Kenai Lake and Kenai River. The next 10 miles you drive along the picturesque glacier-colored Kenai River. You will pass the confluence of the Russian River with its ferry and continue through Sterling to Soldotna, your access to the Kenai River, which is teeming with trout, steelhead and several species of salmon going home to spawn.
From Soldotna day trips to Homer, Seward, Exit Glacier, Clam Gulch, Kenai National Fjords, Ninilchik, Seldovia, and Kodiak can be taken.
