Official State of Alaska Vacation and Travel Information


Clam Gulch State Recreation Area  

Clam Gulch State Recreation Area

The western shore of the Kenai Peninsula, from Kasilof to Anchor Point, is renowned for its clamming but the most famous spot of all is Clam Gulch State Recreation Area, a 129-acre park from whose sandy beaches hundreds of thousands of razor clams are harvested annually. The state recreation area is generally regarded as the best spot in the state by clam diggers due to its easy access, the nearby campground and gradual gradient that makes for wide beds.

Clamming aside, Clam Gulch is a spectacular place to spend the night. The majority of the recreation area is situated on the bluffs overlooking scenic Cook Inlet, giving way to a panoramic view of the Aleutian Mountain Range and its three tallest peaks - Mount Iliamna, Mount Redoubt and Mount Spurr.
