General

  • Family-friendly park in a prime area for canoeing, hiking and fishing
  • A 10-minute drive from the edge of Kenai National Wildlife Refuge
  • Kenai city 30 minutes’ drive; Homer an hour 30 minutes away

If it’s adventure you’re after, set your compass to point you in the direction of Alaska Canoe and Campground in Sterling, western Alaska. It's on the Kenai peninsula, close to prime spots for hiking, fishing and canoeing, and you won’t need to look outside the park to get started – the team will help you arrange everything.

Here for the fishing? Rent your tackle from Alaska Canoe and climb aboard a charter (from Homer, Deep Creek or Seward) to seek out halibut – keep your eyes peeled for sea lions, otters and even whales while you’re out on the boat – or try your luck on the Kenai or Kasilof rivers for king salmon, then have your fish cleaned, frozen and vacuum-packed before you leave.

Want to explore the Alaskan wilderness? Venture into Kenai National Wildlife Refuge with some sturdy boots, or with a canoe, kayak or raft in tow (rent them when you arrive) – the refuge is full of rivers and lakes, and there’s a shuttle service to bring you (plus equipment) from home base to the best spots. If that still sounds like too much work, sign up for a bear-spotting flyout trip, taking to the skies over the refuge to spy out some grizzlies and black bears.

You’ll work up an appetite fairly quickly ‘round these parts, so when you’re ready for some munch make your way back to Alaska Canoe to get the barbecue started (throw on some of your freshly caught fish if you’ve had a good day on the water) or try out one of the restaurants in Sterling or Soldotna (10 minutes away).

Please note

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

A charge of $5.00 applies for the use of the shower.

    Disliked: 

    Facility poorly maintained. Smoke alarms not working and there where none in cabin. Refrigerator did not work well resulting in loss of food. My husband slipped on wet porch and fractured his leg. The owner did not have the courtesy of even checking to see how he was doing. Kitchen in man cave smelled like propane.

From the manager...

Although In Alaska it’s legal to smoke pot.
It’s not ok to smoke it in and on our property. Many of our guests are offended by those that smoke pot.
We don’t allow its use here.
We were not aware of refrigerator problems, we keep extra replacement appliances here just for that reason.
All smoke detectors in our facilities are 10 heat detectors that also have CO detection.
The owner of the property works in the fishing industry and is away on the ocean and not available to check on the guest that broke his leg.
The Manager checked on these folks several times during their stay
And placed them in available rooms as they were displaced from a motel in a nearby town.

    Disliked: 

    Septic system failing and works poorly. Undisclosed fees for certain uses of items on the property like fish cleaning station. Very hard to get hold of and they closed yet left no after hours instructions readily visible at office.

From the manager...

Sewer is fine, children from a previous camping family dropped several 3 inch rocks down the sewer line in that site.
And About parking after hours?
We have on site campground hosts that were at the clearly marked campground host RV site nearest the office.
Same location every year.
This area of Alaska has a dip netting for salmon season, and this is for Alaska residents only.
The use of the fish cleaning station is for our paying guests.
Some of our dip netting customers invite people to use the fish cleaning station without permission.
They also bring additional people to the camp sites and also extra vehicles that they want to park for free, including boats.
Our campground does not have the room for additonal vehicles that people want to park for free.
and also the use of our facilities for folks that want to use these emenities for free!
Because a few of the dip netting folks are being dishonest about staying here and using the facilities we are forced to ask our local dip netters go find a facility that is better suited to handle there needs.
Alaska canoe wants all of our guests to have a wonderful experience , yet some folks want things for free.
This is a 28 year old facility with the same owner .
We appreciate our guests and are very happy to help good people get the most from the Alaska experience .

    Poor experience

From the manager...

Jon is a return customer that requested a specific campsite number 13 but on arrival he realized he had stayed in site 14 on previous visits.
unfortunately site 14 was reserved for a long term customer and those folks did not want to move .
He was not happy that we did not remember the site number that he had stayed in before.
He confronted the office manager with strong language about the situation and said that although he asked for the wrong spot during the reservation process that we should have remembered him and moved him.
After he used strong language on our manager he decided that it was an embarrassing situation he told our manager that he was sorry for speaking and using the words he did , and that he felt they should move on.
this of course is not what we wanted to happen, and we do our best to provide for our guests . Our goal is to always keep a nice and friendly campground that everyone feels happy to be here and enjoy.

Local attractions

Haven’t had enough of fab and scenic Alaskan nature? Travel on to Kenai Fjords National Park, an hour and a half’s drive from base, for hiking and boat tours through spectacular mountains and glaciers.

If you need a break from excursions on the wild Alaskan land and sea, there are plenty of more sedate destinations around here to explore. Start with a visit to the small city of Soldotna for the Historical Society and Museum, Alaska Berries winery, Kenai River Brewing Company and the Town of Living Trees (a chainsaw-carving studio that’s an absolute must), before continuing on to the coastal city of Kenai (30 minutes) to poke around the old town and take in the views over Cook Inlet from the sandy beaches.

Craving some more Alaskan booze? Make your way to Homer, an hour and a half away, for the Bear Creek Winery, Homer Brewing Company and Grace Ridge Brewery, then stick around for the Kilcher Homestead Living Museum (learn about the self-sufficient lifestyle of early pioneers), Miller Comb Museum, Salty Dawg Saloon and tons of galleries.
