Overview

Overview

Located along Cooper Creek and the Kenai River, Cooper Creek South Campground presents a beautiful wooded area with sweeping mountain views.

Impressive wild inhabitants include moose, brown and black bears, mountain goats, bald eagles, lynx and wolves.

Natural Features:

At an elevation of 400 feet, Cooper Creek South sits among spruce and cottonwood forest trees. Kenai River marks the headwaters of Kenai Lake, which spans an estimated 14,000 acres on the Kenai Peninsula in the Chugach Mountain.

Chugach National Forest covers 5 million acres and is comprised of arid tundra wilderness, jagged mountains, deep fjords, glacier-fed rivers and the Prince William Sound.

Recreation:

Red salmon fishing is a popular activity, and both boat and bank fishing offer excellent catches.

The Kenai River also boasts class I and II rapids for kayaking.

The nearby Resurrection Pass Trail takes hikers and bikers on a 39-mile scenic adventure that climbs from 500 to 2,600 feet.

Facilities:

Cooper Creek South offers about 20 reservable campsites. Amenities include drinking water, vault toilets, picnic tables, campfire rings and dumpsters. Parking aprons are gravel and parking is limited. A dump station is available for a fee at nearby Quartz Creek Campground.
