    Question fishing...?

    I am considering purchasing land for a recreational camp for me & my family in Alaska. What areas are best for fishing & accessible hunting?

    Hey ranman not to be rude, but alaska is a HUGE place. If you cut it in half then texas would be the third biggest state.

    If you want info....
    how much you willing to spend?
    Does it have to be on the road system?
    How good of fishing are you talking about and for what species?
    How remote do you feel like getting?
    How cold can you handle? or are you going to only be there in the summer?
    Do you have a boat or would you have one?

    Let us know, and someone who has a cabin will help you out! I live in anchoraqua, and don't have a cabin.

    Good luck.

    There is no land up here. It's all taken. We're already shoulder to shoulder.

    Cool thanks

    akbrownsfan for some REAL input. Sounds like the guy has a dream to me. Oh that's right we want to visit because of the great people, not because of the fish and game. LOL

    i wonder how rich you have to be to get up one day and get online and ask where to buy good hunting /fishing land... kind of sad if youre going to pay hundreds of thousands without ANY prior knowledge of alaska

    You don't have to be rich at all. Remote land can be found for reasonable prices, and the guy is here trying to get some knowledge of where to look.

    I get the jokes about not wanting more people up here, but the outright hostility to those coming here looking for information is disheartening at times. These forums are largely a friendly and helpful place, and I hope we can keep them as such. If you don't enjoy sharing information with those looking to visit or move to Alaska, then don't respond. As for the negative comments, let's give those a rest.

    Default Alaskan Property Aquisistions...

    They are all over the place, and yeah it's a big place.

    Since my favorite is Kodiak Island, I'll tout it. The marine climate (fog) chases the casual traveler away, and as a result the island is not as crowded as mainland Alaska. It also takes an hour hop to get to and from Anchorage, and that additionaly contributes to its ease in people pressure. The town of Kodiak (population around 7,000) has a terrrific road system (100 miles of it and now 60% paved) and full shopping opportunity. Lots of deer (Sitka) make for good hunting, and for the acute trigger finger there is mountain goat and of course the big bear.

    Needless to say, the fishing is excellent and world-class.

    Visit http://www.kodiak.org for the community website for an overview, and then monitor http://www.kodiakdailymirror.com to punch the classifieds for property listings.

    Prices are reasonable and the people are friendly. If I was to pick and pay for my piece of the pie, that island would become my slice...

    Default details?

    this post lacks any details or signs of serious intent. most people would be willing to help but the question is too open ended for a state like AK...

    this might be a spam post...

    Default Land

    It all depends what you are looking for and how far you want to drive to fish. Kenai has some nice lots for about 8- 10 k per acre. Sterling is a good location, close to the Kenai river and not far from other good fishing spots. I was just up there a few weeks ago and looked at some lots but couldn't interest the wife in buying any. Just going to do a fishing vacation every few years and kick myself for not buying any land. Land is only going to go up and it is a great investment.

    He said "Kenai has some nice lots for about 8- 10 k per acre", not River frontage. And there are many lots for that and less.

    I think you missed the sarcasm in the third line.
