Lowell Point is a census-designated place (CDP) in Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska, United States, just outside of Seward. At the 2000 census the population was 92.

Geography[edit]

Lowell Point is located at 60°4′18″N 149°26′37″W / 60.07167°N 149.44361°W / 60.07167; -149.44361 (60.071557, -149.443715).[2] According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 11.8 square miles (31 km2), all of it land.

The only road access is Lowell Point Road, an extension of Seward's Railway Avenue which begins beyond the Seward townsite boundaries, a short distance southwest of the Alaska SeaLife Center and the southern terminus of the Seward Highway. The road is a rough gravel road running along a thin strip of flat land between the mountains and Resurrection Bay, and provides access to the CDP, and beyond to Caines Head State Recreation Area and Fort McGilvray.

Lowell Point does not have a formal harbor, as the well-developed Seward Harbor is a short distance away, but small boats can make beach landings.
