Fav place ever!!

We loved this place! The yurts were clean and cozy. They had a well stocked kitchen and lots of extras. Pancake mixes for breakfast, firewood, soap and shampoo. The owner was so helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this place. Worth the trip to Seward!

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.

Fun place with restaurant, bar, store, liquor, to-go foods.

Great base location in the central Kenai Peninsula. Easy commute to Seward, Kenai, Sterling, (1 hour) or Homer (2 hours). Many excellent trails all around the mountain and Kenai and Russian River area where Gwins Lodge and Roadhouse is located. Primitive only. Porta-John. Bring water. Fire wood for sale as well as liquor, beer and wine on-site. MJ 420 store 1 mile east. Fun place with restaurant, bar, store, liquor, to-go foods.

Lots of bugs

Love this little Campground at the end of the Hope highway. Great place for side trips. We went the last weekend of the season and the bugs were still pretty thick. Seriously the forest service has some pit toilet magic because what ever they do smells strangely pleasant. Which is worth noting.

Backcountry sites and road side

Follow the road to the North trail head. There are a number of campsites across the bridge, on the side of the road or in the parking lot. The restrooms are a single pit toilet in the parking lot at the trail head. If you are biking or hiking be sure to sign the book. This place gets buggy so bring bug dope.

The view is amazing, when the park is closed

This park fills up quickly and does have electric hook ups. I was very surprised by the smell. After salmon spawning season a number of dead fish wash Up on shore and rot and early in the autumn it is pretty strong. The views really are amazing and it is right down from a public toilet. Be ready to see into your neighbors RV and it is always worth a call ahead because of the limited campgrounds in Hope they can fill up quickly especially if there are bands playing in the area on the weekend.

Bring a kayak

This hidden gem is first come first serve and worth it if you can grab a spot. The lake is perfect for a quiet kayak just waiting at the waters edge to see wildlife. There are normal amenities here with pit toilets. But the view is wow.

Such a beautiful drive

This is a standard campground with large spots that should fit the biggest RV. There are some pull through spots as well. Bring bug dope or a screen shelter because the mosquitoes are big and hungry even late into the season.

Camp anywhere you can find

This is the best camping in Alaska. Just find a spot big enough for your rig it tent and pull off. There are many regularly used sites that have rock fire rings already made. Always make sure you are not in a drive way and that there are no POSTED signs to keep off property. Bug shelters highly recommended because depending on the year it’s mosquitoes, flies, or bees.

1 mile in on Trail River Road

This is a huge campground.  91 spots, a group site and a loop just for RVs and can be booked online. The road out to this campground is bumpy so take it slow.  There are many potholes in the dirt road to this campsite. I almost missed the turn headed here so watch for the Trail River Road sign.  There are a number of pull throughs.  I did like 2, 11, and 14 but there are lots of options.   There are also some site like 4 and 5 that are together if there is more than one vehicle in your group.   Cell Service: no Internet: no 2020 Cost: $18 Distance from Anchorage: 97 miles Best sites: 2, 11, 14 or any pull though Bug Factor (1 minimal to 10 too many to enjoy): 6
