The headwaters of Alagnak Wild River lie within the rugged Aleutian Range of neighboring Katmai National Park and Preserve. Meandering west towards Bristol Bay and the Bering Sea, the Alagnak traverses the beautiful Alaska Peninsula, providing an unparalleled opportunity to experience the unique wilderness, wildlife, and cultural heritage of southwest Alaska.
Given its remote location and challenging weather conditions, Aniakchak is one of the most wild and least visited places in the National Park System. This landscape is a vibrant reminder of Alaska's location in the volcanically active "Ring of Fire," as it is home to an impressive six mile (10 km) wide, 2,500 ft (762 m) deep caldera formed during a massive volcanic eruption 3,500 years ago.
Imagine a place of whimsical beauty and larger-than-life landscapes: an ancestral home to ice-age giants and turbulent volcanic activity. A land that holds secrets to the intriguing history of human migration, sustains people that have lived here before its establishment as a preserve and continues to be part of a wide breadth of traditions. Bering Land Bridge is unlike any other place on Earth.
The end of the road is the beginning of a great Alaskan adventure at this new KOA, perched on the edge of Alaska's magnificent Kenai Peninsula. The campground provides a peaceful retreat in a truly remarkable setting. Gaze out across Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet, reveling in views of snow-dusted mountains, active volcanoes, fishing boats, surfacing whales and other wildlife. Terrific hiking trails lie just across the road. Downtown Homer is filled with great restaurants, local art galleries and museums. Visit the Homer Spit for more gift shops, local seafood and many activities, such as fishing, kayaking, four-wheeling and bear viewing. Take a ferry to the coastal communities of Halibut Cove, Seldovia and Kodiak.
