This is the park which has over 190 designated campsites – lots of picnic tables, fir pits and lots of trees for privacy. The best thing is that it has good access to the Kenai River on top of being very near the Soldotna Historical Museum, rodeo grounds and ball fields. There are also accommodations for disabled campers with sites set aside for their use and 95 feet of dedicated fishwalk (ADA accessible).
Actually, there’s more than 850 feet of elevated boardwalk and 19 sets of river access stair units in this park – so don’t forget your fishing poles! The Kenai River does offer the best red and silver salmon fishing, and even the King Salmon!
But for my sister and I, this park and riverside boardwalks offered more of a photoshoot experience!
You can find fish names on many street signs throughout Soldotna and other Alaskan Coastal towns. I like those street names the best! It makes a great game to play with the kids if you have a carload of bored kids.
