Small, close to Seward, good fishing and hiking. Beware of bears
Ptarmigan Creek is one of my favorite places to take friends camping in AK. It is on the way to Seward, and a close drive to visit Exit Glacier. The creek can be pretty rapid, but the fishing is good. Pack your trash away, there are bears in the area. I used to make this a required camping stop after going to the Girdwood Forest Fair.
