Seaside Farm

18 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents30 acres · Homer, AK
Seaside Farm is a 30 acre, magical, park like farm on the shores of Kachemak Bay, just outside of Homer, a few miles down from the Kilcher Homestead where I grew up in the 1940's! . Now a song bird sanctuary, with trails, lawns, gardens, trees, hay fields, and a private beach, cabins, a clover camping meadow, it was also once part of an original Alaska pioneer homestead. Although an organic farm, with hay fields, pastures, farm buildings and raspberry patch, it is also the home of hundreds of songbirds, moose, coyotes, wild hares, flocks of sandhill cranes, two sweet Morgan Horses, and an assortment of chickens. I love sharing my farm and home with travelers, and visitors seeking peace, nature, wildlife, walks on pristine beaches, and connecting with nature, in a real Alaska, original, and non touristy setting. This property has three different types accommodations: Rustic, cozy cabins (no indoor running water), a big field for tent campers only, and a few spaces reserved for 4 wheel drive vans , and similar small vehicle camping, including rooftop tents and occasionally a small pop up trailer. If you prefer camping away from the tourist crowds, you will find our soft clover meadows, surrounded by green trees and well kept lawns, a deluxe and memorable experience. The beach is a short walk down the trail, where its peaceful and private, with no motorized vehicles or noisy crowds, only the sound of the seagulls, and the waves. Van campers have a few special areas to park their vehicles, most with a stunning view of the glaciers and mountains. There is limited parking and turnaround space, and we like our farm peaceful and not too crowded to provide a special rural experience to all who visit this magical farm. It helps to call or text before you arrive to make sure we are on site and can help you with parking and other details! There are three cabins sprinkled throughout the property. Two are off grid, close to the beach, private and magical, with wood stoves. All cabins are able to use the main farm lodge amenities, just a few minutes walk away and have their own outhouses..all with amazing views! You can walk on the beach from the main lodge parking area, there is a covered camping pavilion available to all guests, a communal campfire spot and bbq grill, lovely maintained walking trails and meadows, and even wifi! We allow most types of dogs, but do ask you to contact us before booking with us, so we can let you know our rules before you travel. All dogs must be well behaved, social, on leashes and at owner's side at all times to protect our trusting wildlife from accidental harm, like our baby pheasants, moose, bunnies, and songbird nests! TOURS OPTION As the eldest of the Kilcher clan (yes, the homestead family portrayed on the "Alaska The Last Frontier" tv series), and when time allows, I'm open to give a special tour of the unique and historic Kilcher Family Homestead and original sod roofed, log cabin museum. Available only by special prior arrangement for an extra fee (donation to the museum)

Lazy J Ranch

7 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents40 acres · Homer, AK
My grandparents, Stany and Nelda Jones homestead here, my father was just a toddler when they moved here with his family from Texas. They homestead this area before there were roads, and could only travel to this location via the beach and climbing the bluff. My mothers family also Homestead on the Kenai, in Ninilchik, she was born and grew up there in the small river village. When her and my dad married they continued the Jones family tradition of ranching and farming. We decided to offer our family land and share its beauty with others. Your camping spaces are on a corner of the ranch property, near the shared gazebo fire pit. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Kilcher Homestead MiracleMeadow

4 sites · Lodging, Tents5 acres · Homer, AK
A few things that make my place unique: My 5 acres is part of the famous 620-acre Kilcher Homestead, as seen on “Alaska the Last Frontier” TV show. I am the 7th of the 8 children; Atz and Otto are my brothers. There is a special feeling here vibrating in the land, and why our parents picked this spot. Full outdoor kitchen with all you need to cook and wash up; BBQ, hotplate, pure drinking water, spices, pots/pans/dishes etc. Outdoor hot shower and outhouse with great views! The atmosphere feels so pure, so silent, so wild yet comfortable. Drive-in access sometimes, or have to walk 15 minutes, and no issues with mosquitoes!!! You get to meet me and maybe other family members as you cruise around. Homer is 35 minutes away, with oodles of things to do there: great restaurants, a lap pool, fun shopping, etc. We have quite good cell reception here. Lots of options to enjoy your stay!

Cabins near Homer guide

Overview

At the western edge of the Kenai Peninsula, Homer is an Alaskan adventure outpost that puts world-class parks, hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing, and boating within arms’ reach. Birders are drawn to the area each summer to view migratory bird rookeries by boat, while the surrounding Kachemak Bay State Park and Kenai Glacier National Park offer backcountry camping and extraordinary access to glaciers, mountains, and rugged coastal Alaskan terrain. Hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking are popular summer activities, while winter features opportunities for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

Where to go

Homer Surrounds

Just 25 minutes outside of Homer, the Stariski State Recreation Site has mind-blowing views of the Cook Inlet and snow-capped Aleutian Range peaks, plus a number of nearby private campsites. A bit further north, the famous king salmon runs at Deep Creek State Recreation Area attract anglers in June and July. In town, the Homer Spit is a great place to catch a water taxi to Gull Island for the chance to spot puffins and other seabirds. You can also embark from Homer on an epic birding trip to Kodiak via a ferry route that traverses the Barren Islands and parts of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge.

Kachemak Bay State Park and State Wilderness Park

Across the water from Homer (and accessible via water taxi), the Kachemak Bay State Park and State Wilderness Park provide superb wilderness access, including over 80 miles of hiking trails covering mountains, glaciers, forests, coastlines, and lakes. Visitors may spot seabirds; marine mammals such as whales, otters, or sea lions; and land animals like moose, bears, and mountain goats.

Kenai National Wildlife Refuge

This wildlife refuge protects much of the central Kenai Peninsula, and Homer is near the Skilak Lake and Kenai River sections of the refuge. This area is home to numerous rafting, canoeing, and hiking opportunities, all within striking distance of Homer campsites and RV parks.

Kenai Fjords National Park

Although Homer appears close to Kenai Fjords National Park on a map, the primary point of entry to this park is through Seward, which is roughly a 3.5-hour drive from Homer. If you can make it to Seward, this area is home to various ferries and charter boats that can take you into the park’s fjords and waterways. There is also hiking access to the park’s Exit Glacier Area just outside of Seward.

When to go

Alaska’s summers have long days, great weather, mosquito pressure, and lots of campers, so plan your activities accordingly. Peak birding and fish run seasons are roughly from May to September. Winters are frigid and dark, but travelers may be rewarded with snowsports and a glimpse of the northern lights.
