5 Reviews of Matanuska River Park Campground
Didn’t like highway noise and lots of traffic drives through

Great place to get out for a quick trip or trail trip for children. We had a few campsites next to each other between our groups which was great. The kids had a park they could play at, needs a lot of attention though. Seems after hour parties come here and don’t clean up. Big yard area in park to throw football or small soccer game. There’s a volleyball net set up. Also grills and covered pavilions for day use. At the camp site there is areas for fire and most have picnic tables. Very close spots with paved road in. Bathrooms available in day use area, locked at night according to the sign but we used them later than said times. Short walk to the river, we had a blast with kids and dogs at the water.

Not the best in the valley

This is not my favorite campground in the Matsu Valley. It is a great opportunity if you have a group of people who are looking for campsites right next to each other. Camping spots are not dispersed and you can see into the campsite next to you. This is not a bad campsite, it just would not be my first or second choice.

Very Family friendly

This campground has lots to offer. Water and sewer via dump station…30 amp service available up top. Wooded tent and RV sites down the hill in “The woods”. There are bathrooms with showers, large green area for soccer, frisbee, ect. Volleyball court, covered picnic areas, great hiking. Just off the Matanuska River with trails down to the river. Very convenient to town. Hosts were great.

Not terrible

There are a number of places you can stay in the valley. There are a number of trails. This is an option when other campsites are full.

First to Review
Family Awesomeness!

Although there is no no alcohol allowed this campground is just pure cool. Quiet times from 10pm to 8am, they have a dump, day use area, tons of trails, and fire rings. There are several loops to choose from with a paved RV section up top. Sherrod loop is only 30 feet but much more secluded than above but with no hookups. Pull throughs sites above with over 87 sites total including the paved and dirt road ones. 4 pavilions with a playground and dog station.
