Cooper Landing boasts awesome fishing grounds on the Kenai River. Find fishing on the cottage's private waterfront property (fish for trout yearlong or silver salmon in the late summer/fall). Salmon fishing during the mid-summer months is best downriver a few miles at the confluence of the Russian/Kenai Rivers. You will find a small passenger ferry and boat ramp/fishing access area with fee parking there. You will also find private bank fishing at various other locations when the fish are running. Typically, there's always fabulous trout fishing year round in the Kenai river and its tributaries. Private, for hire guides are available during the summer months.

Rafting down the Upper Kenai is a FABULOUS daytrip. There are a couple of Rafting outfitters in Cooper Landing.

Horseback riding is also available in Cooper Landing. There are many public hiking trails. During the height of summer, try the Russian River trail to the falls for the possibility of seeing Brown/Black bear fishing for salmon.

There are several GREAT restaurants in the area, a small grocery store, and some great little gift shops as well in Cooper Landing.

Cooper Landing is a great 'home base' or 'jumping off' point to other places of interest on the Kenai Peninsula.

Opportunity to take fun daytrips to other points of interest include:

Short drive to either Seward or Kenai/Soldotna/Ninilchick/Homer to go sightseeing, shopping, fresh/salt water fishing, fly fishing.

Clamming during summer months during low tides in Clam Gulch/Ninilchick area approx 90 minute drive from Cooper Landing.

Two hour drive to Homer, Alaska.

Seward (35 minutes drive) has shopping, salt water fishing, glacier tours, Kenai Fiord tours, horseback riding, visit an Iditarod sledding team tour and an aquarium as well as many restaurants.
