A lot of people ask us what has been our favorite park so far this year and that question is practically impossible to answer because each park is so special in its own way.
Perhaps a better way to answer that question, or to even ask it of ourselves, is to tweak it a bit—“what park would you have wished you had more time to spend in and definitely want to go back to?”
That seems more appropriate… Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska is definitely one of them.
This park and its surrounding area has some huge draws for the outdoor set—great camping, a cool local scene, and pristine Alaskan wilderness sprawling into the mountains and to the seas.
These are just a few of the reasons people want to visit the Kenai Peninsula.
The things that motivate us to return are the experiences had while there… once you experience the landscape, you will undoubtedly want to explore it more in a variety of different ways.
