Parked the RV and walked to everything we wanted to see. Would have given 5 star but only 1 washer out of 6 was operational. Pay showers? Weird but we just used the RV.

Best Spit Campground

Campground is pretty great for being a parking lot (gravel)/RV style place. There is on-site laundry, bathroom and shower facilities that are kept pretty clean.

Dogs must be leashed at all times while on the premises.

WiFi is available however Apple products seem to issues connecting to it.…

Gorgeous views…terrible dump station

We dry camped on the beach front lot, site 98. Views were amazing and the site was clean and level. There is a walking path next to this site, but does not intrude on camping space. Fire pit and picnic table provided.

The dump station is unlevel, in the wrong direction. There are two sides to…

About This Campground

If you’re looking for someplace to camp on a beach where you can enjoy stunning mountain views, glorious sunsets, and whales dancing on the waves—all from right outside your tent’s door—look no further than Alaska’s Homer Spit. Located 230 miles southwest of Anchorage, where Alaska’s Highway 1 ends on a tiny finger of land extending out into Kachemak Bay, this oceanfront retreat rewards those who make the effort to get here. Nature lovers will relish the eagle and wildlife watching, anglers can cast for epic halibut and salmon catches, and foodies will enjoy the village’s farmers’ market and many eateries and art galleries. The campground at Homer Spit features 122 campsites where tent and RV campers can make themselves at home across the bay from the glacier-capped peaks of Kenai Peninsula. Campsite options include beachfront tent sites (no hookups), beach view RV sites with electrical hookups, and interior tent and RV sites with electrical or full hookups. Most sites are equipped with picnic tables, and all have access to drinking water, restrooms, showers, laundry facilities and a dump station. The campground has Wifi service, and is within walking distance of most of the town’s shops and restaurants. Sites can accommodate vehicles/trailers up to 40 feet. Rates range from $30–$50/night; reservations recommended. Known as the “Halibut Fishing Capital of the World,” anglers can fish from the end of the spit or charter a boat for fishing offshore. No gear, no problem. Many fishing outfitters rent and sell fishing gear. Several wildlife watching tours are available, including tours by air for whale and bear viewing. After a day on the bay, enjoy food and beverages at the world-famous Salty Dawg Saloon, or live music and dancing at Alice’s Champagne Palace. There’s also a few local breweries and a winery for sampling some of the local elixirs. Homer also hosts a variety of fun and flavorful events through the summer worth checking out.
