NOTES: It's a 1.3-mile run from the boat ramp to the outflow of Skilak Lake into the Kenai River; most boaters use an outboard, though it can be rowed or paddled. The campground offers drinking water through several hand-pump wells, however in most Alaska campgrounds, it is recommended that water be filtered, boiled or otherwise treated before drinking.

This campground is administered by the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.

Fishing

The Lower Skilak Lake campground does not offer fishing directly from shore, however if you have a boat, fishing opportunities in the middle section of the Kenai River are excellent.
