Ninilchik, a fishing community of about 700 people, lies on the west coast of the Kenai Peninsula on the Sterling Highway and offers a panoramic view of an active volcano range. Sport and commercial fishing and tourism are the main industries of this unincorporated community, 38 miles southwest of the city of Kenai and 188 road miles from Anchorage.
The peaceful "small town" atmosphere of Ninilchik and it's central location make it the ideal place to stay when you tour Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. Ninilchik is far enough from "city life" to give a sample of the flavor of real Alaska, yet close enough to everything to make it convenient. The community itself offers full amenities with beautiful campgrounds, both public and private, lodging and restaurant facilities. Shopping for tourist treasures provides a worthwhile venture in Ninilchik, with several unique shops to choose from.
Beaches, rivers, and boat launches provide access to Cook Inlet for world-class salmon and halibut fishing. Roe's Fishing Charters are available for some of the finest saltwater fishing to be found anywhere in the world!
