Granite Creek Campground is set in the captivating Kenai Mountains, surrounded by wildflowers and spruce forests. The rugged mountains of the Kenai Peninsula are one hour south of Anchorage.
Biking is a popular activity at Granite Creek, with a paved bike path along the Seward Highway that extends for five miles south to the Hope Road. While on the path, look for raspberries to pick and wildflowers to smell. Fishing is considered intermediate, and Dolly Varden trout are among the tasty fish you might catch.
Look for wildlife like moose, snowshoe hare, black and brown bears and mountain goats, or sit back and listen to water rushing through the glacier-fed Granite Creek.
The 19 sites are set apart from each other, so you'll get a sense of true nature and quiet. Most sites are right beside the creek. Bears frequent the area, so please make use of the bear boxes available.
Set in the Chugach National Forest, the campground is along Granite Creek, a roaring glacier-fed river. Towering mountains, a mature spruce forest, and many glaciers describe the spectacular sights that await.
A mile east of Granite Creek is the Johnson Pass Trail, a well-maintained 23-mile trail of mostly level terrain and breathtaking vistas. Nearby is Six Mile Creek, with Class V whitewater for rafting and kayaking.
