Amazingly beautiful

Was amazed with the beauty and trails in this area. The campsite for tents have to be hiked in to get to. The RV sites can accommodate tent camping, with smaller tents. So many options to do, you easily forget you don’t have cell service. There are trails, lakes, site seeing and enjoying the peace. We saw black bears,  mamma and cubs. Very curious cubs got very close, momma didn’t seem to mind or get aggressive. Still be prepared for an encounter for your safety. There were lots of smaller critters we saw/heard and signs of moose. We have plans to visit other lakes, trails and camp sites along this route.

Open space.

It is average camp. The staff was a litle rude but hol the convenience af being close to those fishing chartes and stores. They have a very nice views. Bit expensive $ 72.

Favorite Homer Campground

We’ve camped with these folks for 50 years. The Spit has grown up around them, and it’s not as picturesque as it once was…but it’s still right on the beach, walking distance to all the cool stuff on the spit…and it’s affordable. Nice bathrooms with showers…electric available but limited. They take reservations, which is helpful for weekly campers.

Good central location

If you’re looking for a campground with access to the Kenai River, and walk distance to downtown Soldotna, this is it. Typical Alaskan camping…no hookups, but nicely wooded and mostly private. Walking distance to some of the best road accessible fishing in Alaska.


Awesome camping area, though campsites are really close together. Clean bathrooms and showers. Perfect if you want to spend some time on the spit, salty dawg saloon, restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Great views of the beach/water, we saw otters and seals every morning.

Bayside and beautiful

Everything you could need from showers to a club house. Not cheap but worth it. Make reservations because this place fills up.

Alaskan campground right in the middle of Soldotna

Grew up coming to this campground for the last 20 years. Many upgrades and nice trail system around the campground. Great place to camp with your dogs. However the dogs hate the grated boardwalks.

No cell service so bring a book

Really nice little campground. There were a number of other pay places that were full. We were luck to find a pull out. There is not charge for these spots and most have picnic tables and are right on the shore of the lake. Pit toilets are well maintained but is always suggest bring your own toilet paper because you just never know.

Hidden Fun

Hidden Lake canpground is made up of three sections. Skyview loop the furthest from the lake is the largest with sites large enough for any rig. #6, 10 15 and 20 are handicapped only, do not park here unless you have tags or hanging proof. Ridge Loop and Lake Loop are both tighter and have signs warning of limited manuverbility. Sure #6 on lake loop is ADA and #1 on Ridge loop is ADA. There are trails down to the lake from the upper two, ridge and skyview. There is a free boat launch to access Hidden lake which has trout, dolly garden, kokanee and land locked salmon. Seven day limit at only $10 a day. There are day use covered picnic pavilions, an amphitheater, hiking trails and camp host. The walk in tent area is very private and tree covered. All sites have tables and fire rings. Love this place!

Fire Damaged

Went to check out Lower Skilak Lake Canpground and if course due to the Swan Lake fire this year it is closed. Unfortunately the fire damage looks to have maybe taken out the whole campground so please double check before you go. I hope they restore this beautiful campground for next season.
