Cooper Landing, Alaska

The small mountain village of Cooper Landing is located south of Anchorage, on the Kenai Peninsula, and is accessed from the Sterling Highway.

This picturesque village lies on the shores of the beautiful turquoise Kenai River which, along with Russian River, offers some of the best salmon fishing in the world.
