Kenai Riverside Lodge is situated on the scenic banks of the Upper Kenai River in Cooper Landing, the heart of the Kenai Peninsula. The Lodge has authentic and uniquely Alaskan ambience. There is nothing quite like relaxing on the lodge's expansive riverside deck while scoping for a bald eagle or watching salmon swim by in the mesmerizing turquoise waters of the Kenai. You can relax in your cabin when you are not fishing at this world famous fishing destination.
