Situated beautifully up in Thompson Pass is Blueberry Lake and on that lake is Blueberry Lake State Rec Site. With 14 campsites it's small but surrounded in beauty. Site 15 is reserved for the host. This is raw camping just restrooms, firepits, and picnic tables. The whole campground is paved which is wonderful and there are two pavilions along the lake for use. Blueberries abound for picking when in season and Valdez is just a pretty drive down the road. Loved everything about this campground. Wonderfully clean bathrooms and only $25 a night.
I did not get to camp at Blueberry Lakes because we were driving through at mid-day, however it is definitely somewhere I would like to camp one day. This area is as you are coming off of the pass and if it is a clear day you can see mountains for miles and some incredible views of glaciers. There are some great walking trails around the lakes. I'm guessing that there are lots of blueberries here in the summer. We we're coming through in September so it was already past berry season. Do be aware that the restrooms are closed in the off season. The park is open but the facilities are unusable. This is a great place to stop and stretch your legs and take in the views on a clear day. You won't regret it!
