Bicycles and Sea

Situated right along Bird Creek bike path this is a great place to stay if you love to ride your bike. Whale watching and fishing are also two things to help pass the time, if you need it. Each site is nicely level, close to bathrooms and camp host on site. 28 dry campsites and 2 cabins for rent. 7 night stay limit but a great spot for if you want to stay close to Anchorage.

Simple family fun

All spots are close to one bathroom or another. Train does run by at 6 am so it makes a great alarm clock. Quiet time ends at 6 am. Half the camp sites are next to the bike path so watch your dogs. Dry camping and you can reserve cabins but have to do way in advance.

Great spot close to Anchorage!

Can fill up quickly during the summer, so will probably be full if arriving later in the day. Nice, simple campground. A very short walk from the beautiful bird creek. And despite close to the rail road, trains were very infrequent during our stay and not a bother.

Quick place to camp with amazing view

It is close to Anchorage and has good fishing close. The view are to die for.

You are close to Bird Creek to go fishing. The campsites are really nice with nice bathrooms, fire pits, and tables. In the aspen trees and with amazing views of the Cook Inlet. This is one of the most beautiful places to camp. It can be hard to find a camp site on busy weekend because it is so close to Anchorage.

Beautiful but be bear aware!

My wife and I stayed at the beluga cabin for a couple nights last July and had quite the memorable experience. The surrounding area of the campground is beautiful and located right on the Turnagain Arm. There is a nice bike path that connects through the campground that you can take advantage of for a nice bike ride or hike but be aware of wildlife. My wife and I ran into a large juvenile brown bear on the trail leading from the restrooms to our cabin. He gave us one hell of a scare as he came out of the brush 10 yards away from us and reared up on his hind legs to check us out.


We stayed one night at Bird Creek and were unable to get a site when we came back through the area. It sits just south of Anchorage but you would hardly know it! Great to watch the fishing, along a nice trail, and a convenient walk to a small store. We had some grizzly visitors and a moose pass right by our site.

Gorgeous unbeatable view

This campground is great for being out of town a little. The views are amazing. Amazing access to many trails! Waterfalls galore nearby.

Bird Creek Cabin AK

Bird Creek camp/ RV/ Cabin site is a beautiful 25 minute journey south of Anchorage. Far enough away but close enough to town if you feel the need to get back to the city.

We rented a cabin 95$ a night and took aprox 12 young ladies in the chilly month of November! Daring, I know! But state restrooms made sharing a bathroom easy :)

there is a small wood stove and wood supplied for each cabin which was amazing! A lil kitchen area is built in for your food prep pleasure- must bring stoves and water. No electricity so bring your choice of lighting. Also I recommend headlamps for winter months as bathrooms are a small treck from the secluded wooded cabins.

Bunks are built in and a loft makes for plenty of room.

There was a beautiful table with a map in the top- pretty awesome!

There is a walking trail and it's close to the inlet for beluga whale watching and if your lucky a bore tide!

Rv sites and tents sites available as well- plus table and fire pits at each site.

Bird Creek campground

We arrived late Friday night. Through the generosity of the Bahama mamas we shared their campsite for Questival. Perfect site close to Anchorage. Well appointed campsites great fire rings and tent pads. A bit close to the road but there's no other options with the mountains in the water so close.


Our campsite was Llamazing. Great space with fire pit and picnic table. Easy to reserve day of. We were able to easy walk down to the inlet for sunset. Gorgeous!
