Beach front camping

I've heard that the beach front sites go quickly at this campground, but if you can get one I highly recommend it! If you are tent camping you can pitch your tent right on the beach (be tide aware). Beach sites are $35 and other sites are $30. Bathrooms are clean and have lots of sinks and stalls. Showers are $1 and are not timed. Laundry is $2 to wash and $1.50 for 30 mins. of drying. There is also a gift shop and WiFi here.

Home a Quant little fishing town with a drinking style.

I love Homer this campground is right on the beach. Amazing views a chance to see whales from your tent what could be better.

Spectacular Sites Right on The Spit

Of course this being a prime location for tourists, locals, and others it can get pretty crowded especially during the “summer.” The views are so amazing you’ll quickly forget about your close neighbors. Walking distance to almost everything. Sunsets are out of this world.

Very crowded. The first row is on the beach, but goes very fast!

Easy access for all sizes of campers.


This past weekend was my first trip camping in Homer. Decided to find a spot on the spit and I was not disappointed. The view was fantastic and watching the sunset was gorgeous. You do end up really close to others camping on the beach as well but when it’s a weekend in the summer I’m not sure what else you’d expect. Being within walking distance to everything is also a plus.

epic sites!

roughing it to the max, but close proximity to all the sites of Homer’s Spit and epic views! often rowdy groups, but mostly clean! the ground is all rocks and the winds are fierce, but it’s a great weekend spot!

Spitting Image of Alaska

The spit is such a unique place to camp and explore. It does assume a stop at the Salty Dawg Saloon as well as a swing under the gift shops. Kachemack bay has an abundance of critters and sea shells making beach combing amazing. aren’t a bike to explore more or just walk the boardwalks and smell the sea air.

Summer Camping

We camped for two nights this summer. It was absolutely gorgeous day and night. The camping was easy and there was plenty of space for our tents.

solid spot on the spit!

Great amenities. Water and electric hookups, has shower houses and restrooms on site. Wood for sale. Wireless internet availabvle. Has a few ocean view sites. Others are big enough for slide outs and awnings. Dog friendly but not much room for them if they need to stay outside. Great fishing close by in the hole or at the end of the spit for flounder.

Beautiful, free & Busy!

Lots of eagles, but don’t feed them!

people love this campground and it’s near the tourist part of homer, convenient for the farmers market too.

wonderful place to camp, but there are other more private campgrounds nearby and it’s even worth going across Kachemack Bay for glorious private campsites.
