Description
Kachemak Bay State Park is Alaska's first State Park and the only wilderness area that spans more than 400,000 beautiful acres. This dog-friendly park and campground boasts a wide range of terrain, including mountains, forest, coastline, glaciers, and ocean. Visitors and their four-legged friends can choose to tent camp on one of the area's many platforms in the campground, stay in a yurt, or rent one of six public-use cabins at Halibut Cove Lagoon, Leisure Lake, Moose Valley, or Tutka Bay.

Camping is allowed in numerous areas throughout the park, and some areas include amenities such as fire rings, picnic tables, tent platforms, toilets, and bear-proof food storage. Located on the north Pacific Ocean, Kachemak Bay is subject to unpredictable weather, so visitors should be prepared for anything. The Bay's tides are the second-largest in the world, averaging around 15 feet, but reaching heights of 28 feet at times. 

In addition to the camping, hiking, and backpacking, there are plenty of opportunities to get on the water and explore the breathtaking coves and sea life, including whales, sea otters, seals, and porpoises. The bay can be rough at times, so visitors are asked to wear a life jacket at all times.

Whether out on the water or exploring the Alaskan wilderness by foot, Kachemak Bay State Park visitors are sure to fall in love with the stunning views and wide open spaces. It truly is America's last frontier! If you are planning a trip to the area with Fido, be sure to bring a leash, poop bags, and keep an eye on your pooch at all times. The area is home to many wild animals, including bears, coyotes, wolves, and mountain goats, so it is important to maintain control of your pup when visiting the state park.
