Words can’t describe

But I’ll do my best. We went for a drive today and found that wonderful camp ground unfortunately we did not get to say there because of trees that needed to be worked on. But you can bet we are going to be going back and staying there it was a cute little place beautiful lake and I can’t wait tell we get to see it all. It was just a bit windy and the boat dock was rocking but that’s because we have never been on a floating boat dock before 😂.

scenic lake

the lake is near the sites but most are not on the lake. there is a dock and entrance for launching canoes or kayaks. we stayed in a dry cabin. It had a bed platform and built in table and several chairs. the porch had a roof which was nice when it rains. reservations can be made online. there are pit toilets and pump water.

Quiet spot with lots of recreational opportunities

Beautiful lake with lots of camp spots and 3 public use cabins.

Canoe and kayak rentals are available at the lake from Denali Southside River Guides www.denaliriverguides.com

Great lake for fishing, swimming, and wildlife viewing (trumpeter swans, black bears, moose). The loop trail around the lake is a great short day hike, with a few cool bridges. From this trail you can connect to Kesugi ridge trail.

There's no view of Denali from the campground or cabins 1 & 3, but the hike to the east side of the lake does, as well as cabin #2

Cabins are also great for winter aurora viewing!

Beautiful Lake

if you have read any of my reviews, it may be apparent that we prefer the campgrounds without many conveniences. Byres Lake is one. The roads are full of potholes and nothing is very close, but if you like it that way, this is a great place. the fishing is good. Boat rentals available.
The weekends are busy but very quiet during the week. Many people were swimming in the lake.

Wonderful stop on the way to Denali

Multiple first come, first serve loops with spots for both tents and RVs. Reasonably priced ($20/night), picnic tables and fire rings, plenty of trees for hammocks, vault toilets, a water source, and close to the interstate. The lake is gorgeous and has a trail to hike around it.

Absolutely amazing!

Incredible! Big spaces, clean bathrooms, really great large tent pads and long RV spots. Large space between each spot! Very secluded. Clean, well kept, each spot has a fire pit, sitting bench and picnic table. Lots of hiking trails. Public use cabins, boat rentals, dock and water access with life jackets. There is a trail that goes around the whole lake. This campground does not have cell service for GCI, maybe one bar with AT&T. I can’t say enough good things honestly, oh and it’s amazingly quiet. Worth the visit.

Anniversary Worthy

My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Byers lake. It was early spring and we got to experience rain, snow, hail and sunshine all within two days.

We hiked up the ridge for amazing views, kayaked around the lake and saw swans and moose and had a peaceful weekend with one another.

Early in the spring the campground doesn’t get as full as other times so we felt like we had the place to ourselves.

We are so grateful for the parks and that we have such amazing places to visit and celebrate life.

Perfect calm lake and mountain views

Bring your fishing gear! This canoground’s lake has a good supply of trout. Even found a greyling! The back country camp sites are in a remote walking distance. Plenty of sites year round with many hiking trails branching from the main trail head. Fire rings included in sites.

Byers Lake

Large campground with plenty of choices to pitch tents or hook up rv. Clean facilities. Fire pits and picnic tables. Near lakes for canoe/kayak and plenty of hiking trails.
