There is a beautiful 9 hole golf course located just 3.4 miles from the Buskin River Road. It is located at milemarker 2.7 on the Anton Larsen Bay Road. There is a clubhouse, driving range, and club rental available. Open from April-0ctober generally. In the snowy months it's a great place to cross country ski. Beware of the fairways that run along the forest as there are bears spotted here each year!! It's not called Bear Valley Golf Course for nothing!!
Here you can see the runway of the airport in Kodiak. It really makes you go Hmmmmm...... when you get up there and see the runway. If you are flying into Kodiak and the plane has to pull up at the last second there isn't going to be time! You will be hitting the mountain!!
Right at the mouth of the Buskin River is a long sandy stretch of beach. On a hot day of say 72 F or 22C you might enjoy kicking your shoes off and feeling the warmth of the sand! Or playing frisbee or other beach activities. On these "hot" days you won't be alone as half of Kodiak seems to escape the town and they pick their favorite spot to relax. The Buskin River is popular as it is very close to the down town area and the closest sandy beach town!
