There are so many beautiful lakes in the Kendi Pennisula area, but this one is certainly worthy of your time to visit.

Hired a float plane out of Soldotna, High Adventure Air Charter. Jeremy was our guide. What a great guide. Not only did he put us on a lot of fish but was very personable, knowledgeable and funny. I can't praise him enough for making our day absolutely incredible. Also saw bears and eagles.

Beautiful setting, awesome cabin on the lake, crystal clear water, great fishing, amazing nature...rude, intrusive, condescending hikers/residents of Alaskans who were all too eager to repeatedly remind me about their firearms. The trails are easy to navigate and very easy to travel--so much so that bikes are able to traverse with no hindrance. Dead wood is plentiful for cutting/splitting. Mountain... More

Pristine nature, Bald Eagles, saw 5 bears, caught limits of Sockeye. Fly over a volcano and a glacier to get there. Awesome.

My wife and I liked to hike the trail years ago. We camped at the lake three times and have just done the trail to the bridge several times. The bridge is a little more than half way to the lake. Nice spot fore lunch. It is a beautiful place.

Nice trail, not as strenuous as Sky Line. Could take the dogs along. Great views, good fishing. Fun day!
