~~~Seward, Alaska ~~~

We recently visited Seward Alaska and I was enthralled with the beauty & views that were there... Our RV Park was the Waterfront RV Park which was run by the city and was a first come first serve. We did luck out and found 2 sites on the last row facing Resurrection Bay... However all sites faced the water and were terraced so everyone had a view. Great park if you can get into it! I suggest going in M-F...

Seward is situated on Resurrection Bay on the southeast coast of the Kenai Peninsula, 125 highway miles south of Anchorage. It lies at the foot of Mount Marathon, and is the gateway to the Kenai Fjords National Park. The City of Seward was named for U.S. Secretary of State William Seward, 1861-69, who negotiated the purchase of Alaska from Russia during the Lincoln administration







Cruise ships and freighters visit the area frequently... and the boat traffic in the early morning and evenng is very heavy... Fun to watch!!!








Exit Glacier is the only part of the park accessible by road. To get there take Herman Road at Mile 3 on the Sterling Highway. It is about an 8 mile drive to the Exit Glacier Area. There are many things you can do once there. Stroll the trails, walk very close to an active glacier, or take a ranger-led walk. It is a place where you can witness up close how glaciers re-shape a landscape and learn how plant life reclaims the barren rocky land exposed by a glacier’s retreat.






The ride out to Exit Glacier was very scenic and we enjoyed stopping and taking in the surrounding beauty of the Glacier, Mountains and rivers...




Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!
