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.
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.
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.
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
This is a small campground of only 12 spots that fill up during the peak season. The camp host is down the highway at Granite Creek campground (which I also recommend) so if there are no spots head down the road a few miles. Because this is a smaller campground there are less restrooms. This is a centrally located campground and a great choice for first time camping. Close to Anchorage but still out in the middle of no where with no cell phones. Bring extra blankets early in the season it gets pretty cold at these campgrounds. Cell Service: no Internet: no 2020 Cost: $14 Distance from Anchorage: 56 miles Bug Factor (1 minimal to 10 too many to enjoy): 4-7
We were in a rented rv making a last minute stay over in Seward. They had last minute room to boondock in an adjacent parking lot, which was also full in August. We stayed 2 nights, the second in an rv site in Resurrection. We saw some tents, but rv sites are located along the water. Even though sites are close together everyone minded their manners while we were here. There is a blacktop path that leads to the must-see Alaska Sea Life Center. The campground is also close to boat excirsions and restaurants at the dock. Pay shower, clean bathrooms, and a dump station. It was a peaceful stay with an awesome view of the ocean.
