Soldotna, Alaska – Good Boondocking & Breweries

Soldotna, Alaska

We heard great things about Soldotna, but weren’t able to spend much time there. However, I’d be remiss if I didn’t call out a few great spots:

  • The Moose is Loose – This is supposed to be a phenomenal bakery. It was closed both days we were in Soldotna, so we didn’t get to try it, however I’d recommend checking it out if you’ can.
  • Fred Meyers – This is a dirtbag / traveler haven. It allows you to camp for free, plus has free RV water filling, a dump station, and propane. Also, there’s a short walking trail through the woods from its parking lot to St. Elias Brewing Co. Really awesome that they do this.
  • Elias Brewing Company – This is a cool brewery that’s made even better since it’s walking distance from Fred Meyers’ free overnight parking lot. I don’t think we were particularly impressed with the beer, but I remember thinking it was generally good.
