The world famous Russian River Ferry is located at the confluence of the Russian and Kenai Rivers on Alaska’s beautiful Kenai Peninsula. The ferry services one of the most productive salmon sport fishing areas in all of North America.



Travel south from Anchorage by the Seward and Sterling Highways approximately 111 miles to Milepost 55 on the Sterling Highway, Alaska State Highway 1. The ferry is on the left, just a few miles past the Russian River Campground.
