It is a beautiful time of year to visit Kachemak Bay State Park. Alaska's first state park, and only wilderness park, it contains roughly 400,000 acres of mountains, glaciers, forests and ocean. Hiking and camping along the shoreline and in the surrounding forests and mountains are excellent. Above timberline, skiers and hikers will find glaciers and snowfields stretching for miles. Special park attractions include Grewingk Glacier, Poot Peak, China Poot Bay, Halibut Cove Lagoon, Humpy Creek, and China Poot (Leisure) Lake.
