Kasilof RV Park

TIRED OF PARKING LOT CAMPING
& COMBAT FISHING CAMPGROUNDS?

Jon and Jan at KRVP

Jan and Jon welcome you to the Kasilof RV Park

Kasilof RV Park is different than most campgrounds in Alaska.
We are a small, beautiful park with 17 campsites separated by trees and flowers.

Centrally located in the middle of the Kenai Peninsula, the most famous salmon fishing area of the state. We take pride in calling our park a FAMILY CAMPGROUND where everyone can relax, get to know your neighbors, spend an evening together around the campground fire-pit talking, cooking hot dogs or S'mores, singing and having fun with new acquaintances.

Save Time—Save Money—Ditch the hassle.
We have several campers from local cities like Anchorage, Wasilla, and Palmer that spend the entire summer with us. This is what they have to say:

“…with such reasonable long term rates we found it less expensive to rent for the summer and leave everything set up at the site. No more hauling it all back and forth! I save so much time on set up, and my weekends are my own again! Now we have more time to enjoy the local sites and even more importantly—more time for fishing.”
                                                  Christine from Anchorage

Save even more with cheaper winter storage rates.

Kasilof RV Park is a great place to take a break from your busy summer—relax and enjoy nature with the occasional eagle, loons, and swans flying overhead or a momma moose with babies munching their way through the park.
Or take a walk around Johnson Lake or on the nearby beach at the mouth of the beautiful Kasilof River.

Moose enjoy the park setting too!

We are close to the major King, Red and Silver salmon fishing rivers of the Kasilof and the Kenai, King and Silver fishing on Deep Creek and Ninilchik river, charter boats for Halibut on the Cook Inlet, and clamming on Alaska's famous razor-clam beaches. Enjoy catching trout or boating across the road in Johnson Lake. 

Kasilof RV Park has modern, clean facilities, the bathrooms and showers are rated 9.5.  All of the park campsites have water and electricity.  Nine (9) of the campsites have sewer connection and we do have a dump station for your convenience.

New Firepit Our firepit is greatly enjoyed by our visitors. We spend many evenings with guests around the fire enjoying the company and meeting new friends. The campground fire pit has been a great alternative to have campfires at the campsites. It’s a great place to meet other people, hear good stories, sing songs and we furnish the firewood!There is also a grill that can be swung over the fire pit for grilling.

We have WiFi and a Propane filling station!
There are no Tent sites.

The park will be open this summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Kasilof RV Park is located approximately 15 miles south of Soldotna, AK. Use 21377 Crooked Creek Road, Kasilof, Alaska on your GPS.

See our Salmon Fishing Prime Times and Halibut Fishing Suggestions, to determine the best dates to come to our area for fishing. Clamming may be restricted for 2016- so be sure to check before planning a clamming trip in the area.

Again this year we are encouraging long term or summer camping.  We offer very reasonable rates for monthly, summer season, and yearly rentals. 

2015

In Alaska, the 2014-2015 winter had very little snow and much warmer temperatures than normal. The lack of moisture and even warmer temperatures in May (often in the low 80’s) caused many wild fires in Alaska.  Although we did have a fire on the Kenai Peninsula, it was well to the north and east of us. Finally in early June the dry spell was replaced with a series of rains easing the fire problem.  In July, the rains diminished and the rest of the summer was warm and beautiful.

Again the early season King fishing was limited on the Kenai River although the Kasilof had a good run of early hatchery Kings.  The early run of Reds to the Russian was a huge success.  In July, as the weather turned drier and warmer, the King fishing picked up on the peninsula.

The Halibut season was another successful fishery this past summer.  Although the majority of the fish were smaller in the 15 to 25 pound category, there were three fish caught above 200 pounds and one of them set a new record in the Cook Inlet of 403 pounds.  We did go silver fishing this year.

We did mange to go across the Inlet on a trip and catch our limit and managed to catch a few from the shore of the Kenai.  Unfortunately, the clamming season was very poor again this year.  The clams have been so heavily harvested in the past and some bad winter storms a couple of years ago really reduced the numbers available.  Hopefully they will improve this coming summer.  Please check with the Fish & Game to make sure that that the site you are planning to dig is not closed for the summer.  The warm winter made the trout fishing in the Johnson Lake really good and we saw several fish caught over 20 inches long.  We had a wonderful trip across the Inlet this year to watch the Bears and catch some Silvers.  Read the Blog to get all the details.

We have experience visiting most of the major scenic sites in Alaska and can provide information on what to see, when to go and how to get there (see Fun Trips). We can also make reservations for whale watching and sea life cruises, boat rides to Seldovia, airplane rides to see the bears, and bus tours into Denali National Park. These are special services for our guests at the park.

We had a wonderful time last year with lots of great people coming to camp with us. We have made so many friends over the past few years. Many visitors commented how quiet it was and how nice not to have the rowdiness of the fishing camps. We received many compliments of the cleanliness of our bathrooms and showers.
Remember that the last three weeks of July is Red season in the Kasilof and Kenai Rivers. We are always full during that period, you must make advanced reservations early. Last year we were full for those three weeks by the first of June
However—do check with us because we sometimes have people that leave early or cancel their reservations.

Hope to see you this summer!
