Anchor Point Beach

The first written descriptions of the land and people of the Kenai Peninsula are found in the 1778 journals from the British sponsored expedition of Captain James Cook. According to legend, Anchor Point got its name when Captain Cook lost an anchor near the mouth of the river.

The Anchor River is one of Alaska premier fishing areas. Please consult current fishing regulations provided by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for information on seasons, closures, limits, and methods and means before you wet your line.

Anchor Point is operated by Alaska Rec. Mgmt. (907) 522-8368 or (907) 748-2553.
