The City of Soldotna is situated along the banks of the Kenai River, approximately 10 miles inland from the shores of Cook Inlet. Our community is at the heart of the Central Peninsula area, near the communities of Kalifornsky Beach, Kenai, Kasilof, Clam Gulch, Nikiski, Anchor Point, Funny River, and Sterling. Within driving distance are the cities of Homer, Seward, and Anchorage.
Soldotna's location at the center of the Peninsula offers residents and visitors alike access to amazing, big nature -- from world-record salmon in the Kenai River, to wild caribou herds, to migratory waterfowl on the Kenai River Flats and in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. The Refuge is made up of nearly 2 million acres of untouched wilderness, dedicated in 1941 by President Roosevelt.
Our status as a hub for retail and professional services means that folks visiting our community benefit from top notch healthcare services, access to a wide variety of shopping and dining amenities, and a healthy choice of hotels, bed and breakfasts, cabins, and other lodging establishments.
