Kasilof RV Park

Kasilof RV Park has modern, clean facilities in a park-like setting, making it a favorite Kenai Peninsula RV park.

Enjoy the nature of Alaska and get away from parking-lot style parks and combat fishing campgrounds.

Centrally located on the Kenai Peninsula, we are close to the major salmon fishing rivers of the Kasilof and the Kenai, king 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.

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.

We have updated our Salmon Fishing Prime Times and Clamming Tide Tables for 2015, as well as our Halibut Fishing Suggestions, so you can determine the best dates to come to our area for fishing and clamming.

 

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

The park is also noted for bird watching—with eagles flying over and more then twenty other species having been spotted—its abundant  wildflowers, and wildlife.

2014 was another great summer! The weather was wonderful with temperatures in the high 60’s to high 70’s, and lots of sunshine with occasional rainy days. Compared to the lower 48, the summers in Alaska are fabulous and it is so beautiful.

We managed to take a group up to Denali National Park this fall and it was really a great and beautiful trip. Although it was pretty rainy and we didn’t get to see Denali (Mt. McKinley), we did get to see a lot of beautiful country and lots of bear, caribou, mountain sheep and a few moose. We highly recommend that trip and the daily Seward Wildlife Cruises for enjoying all the wonder of Alaska. Part of our group also had a great float-plane trip across the Cook Inletbear watching and fishing.

Fishing was good for us, but there were problems with the King salmon fishing and the halibut fishing. Read the Blog post for the details. Some comments though: If you are expecting to fish for King (Chinook) salmon, you have to realize that the numbers coming in the river are way down although we are hoping they will improve. Also, clamming on the Kenai Peninsula is poor due to over harvesting of the clams. Fish and Game have closed down several of the most popular clamming sites, but some are still open (be sure to check with F&G to find out which ones). Also the west shore of the Cook Inlet is loaded with clams and there is no limit. Red fishing has been and should be fantastic. Trout fishing in Johnson Lake was also excellent this year.


We had a good year with lots of great people coming to camp with us. We have made so many friends over the past few years. 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. Howeverdo check with us because we sometimes have people that leave early or cancel their reservations.

Hope to see you this summer!

We had a great time last year with lots of wonderful campers visiting. 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. 

Our office includes a small shop of Alaskan gifts and fishing supplies such as hooks and flies for salmon fishing and small hooks and line for trout fishing in Johnson Lake. We also have some fishing equipment (rods, reels, nets) for rent and will be happy to show you places to go for fishing. We have access to local guides for King salmon fishing and Halibut fishing and will be happy to provide the information to you or make reservations for you.

With the large number of salmon brought into the park to be cleaned each summer, we decided that it was time to rebuild the cleaning table. It now has a cover to keep off the sun and the rain, three cleaning sites and water hoses at each site. We are still not allowed to dump fish scraps in the local river or in the waste containers so please plan on taking your scraps back to the rivers where you caught the fish. none New Cleaning Table
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. We are not allowed by the Forest Service to have campfires at the campsites due to the natural areas between the sites. However, the campground firepit has been a great alternative!
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 firepit for grilling.

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 hope you will join us for a few days, a week, month or even the whole summer!
