Deep Creek State Recreation Area in Cook Inlet is legendary for its halibut and king salmon runs, making the campsites in the park very much in demand. Bald eagles are visible year-round. In the month of May, sandhill cranes and other shore birds inhabit the saltwater marsh. Whales, seals and otters can be seen offshore.

Marine Services LLC, is a private company that provides tractor assisted boat launching services at Deep Creek beach under a permit issued by Alaska State Parks. This service allows recreational boaters and charter operators to launch boats into Cook Inlet. Cost is $55.00 per launch and retrieval.

The beaches from Clam Gulch to Ninilchik are the most popular areas for digging razor clams in Alaska. The razor clam, a filter feeder, relies on plankton for food. The life cycle of the razor clam is simple and unique. Razor clams usually reproduce first at age four to five, and live about 14 to 18 years. Reproduction is triggered when Cook Inlet waters reach a temperature of about 55 degrees Fahrenheit, usually between late July and early August.
