Cooper Landing sits at the heart of some of the best fishing in the world. It is located at the west end of Kenai Lake and near the world famous Kenai River. It was named for Joseph Cooper, a miner who discovered gold here in the mid-1890's. A school and post office opened in the 1920's to serve the local residents. Roads were built in the late 40's and early 50's to Kenai and Anchorage. The town stretches along several miles of the Sterling Highway and the Kenai River.
