Indian is an unincorporated community along the Turnagain Arm, the body of water that branches off from Cook Inlet to form the Kenai Peninsula. Indian is on the Seward Hwy at Mile 103.5, about 24 miles from Anchorage.
The area is famous for the bore tides that rush into the Turnagain Arm. Indian is a rugged area adjacent to the Chugach State Park. The road parallels the Alaska Railroad betweem Portage and Anchorage. Indian Creek flows through Indian Valley into the sea.
The creeks are heavily fished for pink and silver salmon. There are avalanche gates and gun emplacements along the road here. The area is also popular for berry picking and bird watching.
