Did you know...the beautiful waters of the Cooper Landing area are uniquely tinted TURQUOISE by suspended ultra-fine glacial silt?  

Cooper Landing is rich in native and pioneer history. Joseph Cooper and his crew traveled up the Kenai River from Cook Inlet in 1884 then later in 1896 exploring for gold. Kenai Lake was at that time called Lake Long with the miner’s camp called Lake City. This was renamed Cooper Creek Landing around 1914 and then changed again to what is now known as Cooper Landing. 

The Gem of the Kenai Peninsula, an Emerald in summer, and a Diamond in the Winter. Conveniently located in the middle of the Kenai Peninsula, nestled in the majestic Kenai Mountains along the beautiful waters of Kenai Lake and the upper Kenai River.
