The Swanson River Lakes are a system of lakes connected by the Swanson River. They are located within the nearly 2 million acre Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. The lakes usually attract boaters, anglers, hikers, and nature enthusiasts.

Because the lakes are connected through the Swanson River System, it has one of the best canoe routes in Alaska. The canoe route entrance is located on Paddle Lake. Canoeing is open when the lake ice breaks up, about mid-May, until mid-October.

The Swanson River Lakes are located in the wilderness section of the refuge so there are no designated camping sites, cabins, or hiking trails close by. There are, however, hiking trails, boat ramps, camping sites, and public use cabins located within the Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area found inside the refuge.

Nature enthusiasts will be overjoyed with the abundant wildlife viewing the refuge offers. Wildlife that can be seen includes black and brown bears, moose, beaver, lynx, wolves, coyotes, weasels, and multiple species of birds.
