Welcome to the Historic Hope Cafe & Campground

Proud to be formerly the Seaview Café, Bar, and RV Park

In choosing this new name, we honor Hope’s past and the legacy of the Seaview while looking forward to our next phase offering exceptional “end-of-the-road” Alaskan hospitality.

The Historic Hope Café & Campground proudly offers “end-of-the-road” Alaskan hospitality at its (un-fancy) finest. Please join us this summer and enjoy our rustic lodging, creative casual dining, and authentic small town cultural experience on the beautiful shore of Turnagain Arm in Hope, Alaska (ancestral land of the Dena’ina Athabaskan People).

The café and campground are located 16 miles down the Hope Highway on the Kenai Peninsula (two hours south of Anchorage) and are situated amidst native ecosystems on the tidal flats of Cook Inlet’s Turnagain Arm near the mouth of Resurrection Creek.


Built during the pre-Klondike gold rush boom of the 1890s, the Historic Hope Café is a preeminent landmark of the Downtown Historic Hope District and is centrally located near most local attractions (including the Hope and Sunrise Historical Mining Museum), as well as a multitude of recreation opportunities, and a few neighboring businesses.

It is our privilege to share this special place with guests from near and far. Thus, we take seriously our responsibility as Good Stewards of the area to honor it with respect and sustaining contributions to the land and our community. Thank you for your support of these efforts, and for your interest in visiting us! We’re excited for the opportunity to host you soon in Hope, Alaska.
