K’Beq Interpretive Site

Kenai Peninsula

This riverfront site, run by the local Kenaitzie tribe, is a refreshing reminder of what this area was like before the flood of sport fishers. A quarter-mile boardwalk winds past an ancient house pit and other archaeological relics, while interpretive panels address berry picking, steam-bath building and more traditional methods of catching fish on the Kenai.

Several guided tours depart throughout the day, and of course there's a gift shop.
