The town now known as Sterling was originally called “Naptowne” when it was first opened for settlement in 1947. However, the area—which had a few homesteaders by then—acquired a post office in 1954 which was given the designation of “Sterling” after the Sterling Highway that served the area.
An archaeological site, containing prehistoric Dena’ina house pits, has been discovered near Sterling, showing that the area was inhabited in prehistoric times.
The main industries around Sterling today are support for tourism and sport fishing and hunting.
Sterling is adjacent to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and also two Alaska state parks. Scout Lake State Recreation Site is a 164 acres (66 ha) day-use only park. The park has a picnic shelter and a lake stocked with rainbow trout and Arctic grayling. Morgan’s Landing State Recreation Area is the headquarters for Alaska State Parks on the Kenai Peninsula. The park is 279 acres (113 ha) and has a campground and one of the few public access points for bank fishing on the middle Kenai River.
