Be Bear Aware


Caravans are usually RV camping groups of 10 units or more with one designated trip coordinator.  Groups wishing to stay together can make a reservation and will be assigned specific sites in our established caravan area.  All RV caravan area sites have electric and water hook-ups.  Caravan units will be placed in the Godwin campground in spaces 500-517 or 518-535.

A group tent camping area is available in Forest Acres Campground for organizations and non-profit groups.  Reservation requests must be made by emailing or phoning us at least 30 days in advance.  Pre-payment is required.  You may call for availability         (907) 224-4068 or email .

*We do not take caravan reservations the last week of June through July 7th.*

RV Utility Camping
We upgraded in 2003 and now have 99 "utility" sites that include water and electrical hook-ups. Sites are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. The current price for a "utility" site is $40 per night.  Some of the utility sites are part of our designated caravan area. These specific sites are available to all campers EXCEPT when caravans are scheduled. Prior to site selections, check the bulletin board for caravan arrival and departure dates and sites that are reserved. In 2017, new picnic tables were purchased, to increase the number available to campers.  These tables are on some sites and are in high demand.

Ready Set Go! What Does Preparedness Mean for Area Residents and Visitors?
Posted: 10 Jul 2019 08:00 PM PDT
Evacuations are initiated for various emergency situations in Alaska. During a wildland fire response evacuation planning may be initiated as a precautionary measure. The Swan Lake Fire Incident Management Team, Agency Administrators and the Kenai Peninsula Borough Office of Emergency Management (OEM) personnel are working together to implement a "Ready Set Go!" plan for the Cooper Landing area. How can you do your part? When notifications are released, residents and visitors are asked to actively participate at each level for their individual safety and for the safety of the first responders and wildland firefighters.
LEVEL 1: “BE READY” for a potential evacuation. Get your evacuation supplies together.
Residents should be aware of the danger that exists in their area, monitor emergency services websites and local media outlets for information. This is the time for preparation and precautionary movement of persons with mobility concerns, pets and livestock. If conditions worsen, emergency services personnel may contact you through the emergency notification system “KPBalerts.” Residents and visitors should always practice a “Be Ready” state of preparedness regardless of conditions. Creating defensible space around your property is an effective way "Be Ready." Click HERE for Firewise Alaska information.

LEVEL 2: "BE SET" to evacuate. You must prepare to leave at a moment’s notice.

This level indicates there is significant danger to your area. At “Be Set” residents have two options: (1) Don’t wait! Voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside of the affected area; or (2) Be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice. Residents will NOT have time to gather necessary items if not already completed during the Level 1: “Be Ready.” THIS MAY BE THE ONLY NOTICE THAT YOU RECEIVE. Emergency services cannot guarantee that they will be able to notify you if conditions rapidly deteriorate. Area media services will be asked to broadcast periodic updates. If available, Community Emergency Response Team volunteers (CERT) in green vests may conduct door-to-door notifications with local law enforcement officers.


Danger to your area is current or imminent, and you should evacuate immediately. If you choose to ignore this advisement, you must understand that emergency services may not be available to assist you further. DO NOT delay leaving to gather any belongings or make efforts to protect your home. THIS WILL BE THE LAST NOTICE THAT YOU RECEIVE. Entry to evacuated areas may be denied until conditions are safe. Area radio and TV stations have been asked to broadcast periodic updates. These stations and the blog  will actively notify residents when it is safe to re-enter the evacuated area.

To build a seven day emergency kit, create a family plan or for more information on wildland fire preparedness before, during and after an evacuation, visit the Kenai Peninsula Borough OEM webpage at
