We absolutely love going to Nikiski Pool. We always have a great time. However, the website does not give enough information for travelers. For example, Nikiski Pool will only accept cash or checks. They do not accept plastic. The website does not tell you that...More

What can I say? I would swim here everyday!! As it was, it's a 12-mile drive, but worth it. The water is a comfortable warm, unlike the high schoo in Ketchikan. The people there are nice. And I adored the hot tub. If you're overweight,...More
