After skirting the north end of Kenai Lake, you enter scenic Cooper Landing (Mile 48.4). This picturesque outpost – named for Joseph Cooper, a miner who worked the area in the 1880s – is best known for its rich and brutal combat salmon fishing along the Russian and Kenai Rivers. While rustic log-cabin lodges featuring giant fish freezers are still the lifeblood of this town, the trails, rafting and kayaking opportunities attract a very different sort of tourist.
