The Kenai Peninsula and Southcentral Alaska Sights

Kachemak Bay State Park and State Wilderness Park

  • Park (National/State/Provincial)

Fodor's Review

Recreational opportunities in this beautiful park, which encompasses about 400,000 acres, include boating, sea kayaking, fishing, hiking, and beachcombing. Among the attractions here are Grewingk Glacier, Poot Peak, China Poot Bay, Halibut Cove Lagoon, Tutka Bay, Humpy Creek, and China Poot (Leisure) Lake—trails accessible from Kachemak Bay lead to all of them. Facilities are minimal, but include 20 primitive campsites and five public-use cabins ($50–$65 a night).

Most Homer water taxi operators can drop you off and pick you up at specific points and can provide advice about hiking, camping, and kayaking trips.
