Anchor Point is northwest of Homer at the junction of the Anchor River and its north fork. This growing village thrives on its prime sport-fishing location and is the westernmost highway point in North America.
In the summer of 1778, Captain James Cook sailed into Cook Inlet looking for the Northwest Passage. Captain Cook lost a large anchor here to the powerful tidal currents, giving Anchor Point its name.
The area offers great lodging and dining choices. There are four excellent state campgrounds along the river and some private campgrounds.
The February Snow Rondi is a fun annual winter event. Memorial Weekend Family Fun Festival is this community’s way of providing a family atmosphere for the Memorial Day weekend. And Anchor Point goes all out for its In-dependence Day celebration on July 4th with events like the Rubber Ducky Race and community picnic. Christmas time brings a party for kids.
