The North Peninsula Chamber of Commerce welcomes you! Located north of the city of Kenai on the scenic Kenai Spur Highway, the North Peninsula has many attractions waiting for you.
The village of Nikiski and the “north road,” local term for this area, has everything you need during your visit. It hosts a variety of restaurants, full grocery store, hair & nail salon, health spa, gift shopping and more. Best of all, some of the friendliest people in Alaska.
Favorite to Alaskans statewide is the Award Winning Nikiski Pool, a one of a kind indoor swimming pool. The kids will love the 136 ft. water slide and mushroom waterfall. Including lap swimming, Jacuzzi, a 13-ft deep diving pool and a large family swimming pool with depths ranging from zero entry to 4 1/2 ft. Nikiski Pool is handicapped accessible. Look for the signs, you can’t miss it.
At the “end of the road” is Captain Cook Park, it’s known as one of the most beautiful state parks and best family campgrounds on the peninsula. Captain Cook Park offers wonderful beach combing and spectacular views of Mount Spur, Mount Redoubt and Mount Illiamna. Two campgrounds are available: Discovery Campground that has 53 big campsites with individual parking spaces and Bishop Creek Campground with 12 walk-in sites. Remember to keep your food locked in your car or you may be visited by a black bear.
On a hot day bring the family to Stormy Lake where there is a swimming beach and a boat launch so you can enjoy water skiing and lake fishing.
Join us for “Family Fun in the Midnight Sun” which is held on the third Saturday in June each year at the North Peninsula Recreation Service Area. A community wide festivity that includes games, food and prizes for kids and adults of all ages.
