Kasilof Area State Parks
Kasilof is a small fishing village centered around its boat harbor on the Kasilof River, 3.6 miles west of the Sterling Highway and 15 miles south of Soldotna. Surrounding Kasilof are three state recreation sites popular among campers, anglers and canoeists during the summer months.
The largest of the three is 332-acre Johnson Lake State Recreation Area, which surrounds its namesake lake southeast of Kasilof. At the Sterling Highway bridge over the Kasilof River is the 50-acre Kasilof River State Recreation Site, a popular launch site for anglers in drift boats. To the west, at the river’s confluence with Crooked Creek, is 49-acre Crooked Creek State Recreation Site.
