If you really want to get away from it all, book an RV in Kodiak Borough and camp at Pasagshak River State Recreation Site. This small 25-acre site was created in 1980 to give recreationists access to the unbelievable, pristine land and waters in Pasagshak Bay. This bay is on the east side of Kodiak Island, the largest island in Alaska and the second largest in the United States. It’s home to a range of Alaskan wildlife, including 3,000 Kodiak bears, a subspecies of brown bear.

The Pasagshak River is three miles long and feeds water from Lake Rose Tead into the Gulf of Alaska. It's one of the best fishing spots on Kodiak Island or even southern Alaska for that matter. The recreation site is also perfect for kayaking, hiking, and just enjoying the Alaska wild. You'll feel like you're at land’s end.

Getting Outdoors

Most Pasagshak River State Recreation Site campers come for the fishing. Anglers can catch numerous species of salmon, including sockeye, chum, pink, and silver salmon. You’ll also find some beautiful Dolly Varden in the river too. You can fish from shore or kayak and will need a proper license to do so. You can get an Alaska fishing license in Kodiak if you missed it on the mainland.

Wildlife viewers and photographers can be overwhelmed at Pasagshak River with the beautiful scenery and animals that either live on the island permanently or pass through in annual migrations. You’ll get up close with bears, bald eagles, and seals. When the time is right, you're sure to see spouts from whales passing by the island, which you can view from your campsite or lookouts accessed by hiking trails.

The beach in Pasagshak Bay is perfect for beachcombing, where you can look for shells, sea glass, and driftwood. If you want to get above the water, there are numerous hikes accessible from the road to the bay. One of the most rewarding hikes is the moderate Pyramid Mountain hike, granting explorers expansive views of the wild landscape. Or, if you prefer to explore in the water, the protected bay is also great for kayaking.

Camping at Pasagshak River

Taking a rental RV to Pasagshak River State Recreation Site isn’t an easy task, and is one of the reasons you won’t have to share the park's campground with many other people, even in the summer. It’s going to take some time and planning. You’ll have to get your motorhome to Homer and be sure you have a spot on the ferry to Kodiak Island. The ferry ride is just over nine hours, and then it’s another hour over winding mountain roads to the campground at Pasagshak River State Park.

Once you arrive at the campground, you'll find six RV sites that can accommodate a campervan rental up to 40 feet long. You'll be sharing the campground with an additional six tent sites. All of them overlook the beach, with immediate access to the river. This is a primitive campground with just a few pit toilets, a hand pump for water, and picnic tables. All campers will need to pack out their trash, as large-scale garbage removal is challenging. You won't find any hookups here, but there's a dump station in Kodiak, one hour away. Pets are allowed here as long as they’re on a leash.

Exploring the Area

Kodiak has a lot to offer despite its small population. There are some great museums on the north end of the island, one hour from Pasagshak River. These museums include the Kodiak Maritime Museum, the Alutiiq Museum, and the Kodiak Military History Museum at Fort Abercrombie. There’s also a very active arts council in Kodiak dedicated to showcasing the works of their talented local artists. When you’re tired of cooking in your motorhome, head into town for some fresh seafood.

You won’t just want to limit your sightseeing to the Pagashak Bay area and the town of Kodiak. Hire a guide to view the bears, fish in other areas of the island, or go on a whale-watching tour.

There are some services on the island of Kodiak, but you’ll be sure to pay extra for them. Buy your food and supplies in Anchorage if you can and refuel in Homer before getting on the ferry. You'll find basic provisions in Kodiak, and there is fuel available, but it's more expensive. Be sure to check out Seward, not far from Homer, for even more exceptional waterfront RV camping in Alaska.
