Explore Kachemak Bay State Park

Kachemak Bay State Park, a gem of the Alaska state park system and Alaska’s first state park, is located across Kachemak Bay from Homer. Covering more than 400,000 acres, Kachemak Bay State Park has more than 80 miles of trails – and no road access. The park contains mountains, glaciers, forests, oceans and rock formations that are evidence of the many movements of the earth’s crust.

Visitors will have to take a boat or airplane to reach this scenic destination. Spend a day hiking, camping, kayaking, or wildlife viewing and let the inner adventurer run wild. Water taxi transportation is available from the Homer Spit to the park, and destinations across the bay including Seldovia and Halibut Cove. Enjoy a fully narrated Kachemak Bay tour with stops at Gull Island Seabird Rookery and Eldred Passage. Spot whales, bald eagles, sea otters, and shorebirds and enjoy spectacular glacier views.
