7 Reviews of Matanuska Glacier State Rec Area
So many rules

You would think that a city allowing ATVs to right next to the roadway would allow you to drink other campgrounds. There are just way too many rules for me. This is an option if there are no other campgrounds in the valley open but I would always try for State recreation site with less rules.

Pleasant small campground

Very pleasant little campground with some sites being well-separated and private.  There was quite a bit of noise from a nearby cabin but it was reasonably quiet otherwise.  Proximity to the glacier was a big plus.  Sites are probably too small for large RVs or trailers.

Gorgeous Glacier Views

Never would have thought to stop at this small but beautifully gem. Only 10 campsites total at $20 a night this place is just orgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. The fall leaves here were so beautiful. Hiking nearby gives you something do besides just sit and rejuvanate.

Pass it by

Pot hole parking lot. No alcohol, locked in at night, reservable, not every site has tables, fire pits, half the sites are locked off not in use, restrooms, small picnic pavilion, boat launch, $20 a night, host firewood $6.

Gorgeous Glacier

The hike to the glacier is magical. You feel like you are walking on gravel but are on the actual glacier. Absolutely beautiful!
