Might be a dumb question, but better to appear dumb than to be dumb standing there with a ticket in your hand from the local constabulary. I havenít been down to the Kenai for a couple of years, but on the south side there used to be a pay gate just before the beach as well as a slef pay box down at the mouth. I normally park somewhere on the road side of the pay gate and take the 4 wheeler in from there. I always assumed that you could pay at either the entrance of the beach, or at the mouth and didnít have to pay for both as sometimes the pay booth isn't manned, but with the way things are going these days nothing is a sure bet. You are supposed to display your pay stub in the window of your vehicle, but if you park on the road side of the pay gate between Canary Road and the pay gate, or in the parking lot by the gate, assuming there is a parking spot, you obviously wonít have the pay stub with you if you 4 wheel down to the mouth. What is the accepted protocol these days as I know the local constabulary is always down at the mouth although they have never asked to see my pay stub. Very friendly folks by the way, but I donít care to see the unfriendly side.
