I do not have the GPS coordinates, but you cannot miss it. Head out of Anchorage on Seward Hwy down Turnagain Arm. The turn is roughly 2/3 the way to Seward and is well marked. The road is the first turn past the road to Girdwood. If you have specific need to have GPS coordinates, you might call the Begich-Boggs Visitor Center for Portage Glacier, as they are likely able to provide that info to you.
