Commonly known as Alaska’s favorite playground, the Kenai Peninsula boasts activities ranging from backpacking to rafting to world class fishing.  Located in quaint and remote Cooper Landing, the Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge overlooks the majestic Kenai River.  Situated approximately 100 miles south of Anchorage and 50 miles north of Seward, the lodge is open from early May through mid-September with a variety of seasonal positions available.


Bordering the Chugach National Forest and the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, the Kenai Princess Lodge is surrounded by natural beauty.  Located in the small community of Cooper Landing, this 86 room lodge sits high on a bluff overlooking the beautiful turquoise waters of the world famous Kenai River.  The entire Kenai Peninsula, located south of Anchorage, is commonly referred to as “Alaska’s Playground”, making for excellent outdoor opportunities.  When not working, employees enjoy fishing, hiking, canoeing/rafting, mountain biking and more.  Optional tours offered through the lodge, such as horseback riding and boat excursions into Kenai Fjords National Park are available to employees at discounted prices.
