Mount Prindle Campground


Bureau of Land Management

The Mount Prindle Campground is one of two campgrounds located at either end of the Nome Creek Valley, on the southern edge of the White Mountains NRA. The campground___s 13 sites, are situated among tall willow shrubs, below expansive alpine tundra meadows and Mount Prindle (5,286 feet), making it the ideal spot to begin a trip into the high country. From here you can enjoy gold panning in Nome Creek or explore the nearby Quartz Creek Trail. Campgrounds are maintained during the summer season (June thru mid-September) and have hand pump wells, trash cans, and outhouse-style toilets. Each campsite has a parking area, picnic tables, and fire rings. Firewood is not provided. The nearest RV dump station is in Fairbanks.

Nice quiet getaway

Nice quiet campground. Very little vehicle traffic due to the location being at the end of the road. Running river not too far from the campsite makes for perfect background noise to sleep too. Well ventilated outhouse style toilets were surprisingly clean. Bring your own firewood since there was no fallen trees to cut up.
