Exploring the little fishing town of Hope, Alaska
As we head further into the Kenai Peninsula, our next stop is the little fishing town of Hope, Alaska.
Camping in Hope
Pro-top: don’t arrive in Hope, Alaska on the weekend during the fishing season without a campground reservation if you want to stay right in town. They were all full when we arrived on a Saturday but seemed to clear out on Sunday.
No worries, though. We just stayed in a pull-out a little bit out of town and drove into Hope to explore. There are several pull-outs just outside of town where you can boondock.
Ours had a water view. And there was even a fire pit set up in a clearing in the trees.
We took one of the cars and drove into Hope to explore.
It’s a cute little town. Most of the buildings are historic.
They even have some restored cabins you can tour that are set-up with furnishings from the period.
When we arrived Saturday, people lined the creek salmon fishing, Many of them seemed to leave Sunday, but there were still plenty of folks trying their luck. And there appeared to be little luck involved. We watched people pull fish out every time they threw their hook.
And the views of the mountains were beautiful!
All in all, it wasn’t a bad little side trip, but you might be more inclined to go there if you like to fish. As vegans, we aren’t into that.
