Thread: RV Campground and Reds on the Kenai

    Default RV Campground and Reds on the Kenai

    Hey all thought I would find this by doing a search but have not been able to. The wife, mom-in-law, and I will be in the Kenai area this coming weekend (Thur-Sat) and are hoping to get into some reds. I have fished the russian before and was going to default to there but some online reading got me thinking maybe there was somewhere else I should check out.

    We have a truck with slide-in camper so I was wondering if anyone knew of any great RV park type campgrounds (even ones with no electrical/etc. as we can go without) that we could stay the night in and fish right there on property (or nearby). My readings revealed that there were "many" but I figured I would ask our favorite forum for suggestions on the best of the many.

    Tight Lines,

    There are alot of places you could stay, some with better fishing than others. Although I have places that I would prefer to fish that aren't next to a campground you might want to check out Centennial Park. It's just below the Soldotna bridge. There are places to fish above and below the boat launch area. If your not sure you want to stay there just ask them to let you drive through and check it out. Imo its a better place to stay than most parking lot style campgrounds. But if they are full you may have to stay in overflow/parking lot style camping. Wish I was heading down that way to get some fish.

    AKBighorn is right on the money. Was at Centennial last Saturday. Fishing was slow but nice big fish. This weekend should be good fishing.
    Good luck

    The last 2 weeks of July is typically the best time. The run slows down about the first of August.

    Thanks for the replys guys looks like Centeniall is in the lead for our direction. Doing the little bit of research that I could sounds like there may be a number of boardwalks to fish from as well as wade in areas, and some boot in areas. We have waders but I was thinking that just our hip-boots would work out well or should we stay on the boardwalks to fish. Any ideas?

    Was at centennial last Saturday and Sunday as well, good fishing but the campground is packed. A lot of people were driving around looking for a spot to camp/park...and one ***hole removed someone's camping ticket, drove around the block and park his truck where that other family was camping.
    He then proceeded to argue with the other guy saying there was no ticket there. I mean really???
    As far as areas to fish...you can either fish the banks, wade thru 2-3 feet of water, or fish from the boardwalk.

    Have fun, drive safe and tight lines!
