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.

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.
