Situated just down the road from quartz Lake State Recreation Campground Little Lost Lake Campground at Mile 2.1 has 12 pull in or back in campsites with picnic tables and fire pits. A large parking area, toilets, litter bins, and boat dock. The lake has Arctic char rainbow trout and some salmon stocke for fishing. A trail connects Little Lost Lake and Quarts Lake camping areas so you have access to both lakes. Not to be outdone by its bigger brother at Quartz Lake, Little Lost Lake campground is a gem of its own.
Wonderful surprise right on the lake. Camp host, 16 great sites situated next to Quartz Lake, with a walking trail down to Little Lost lake which has it's own campground. Lots of dual sites great for those who camp with friends. Only downside was the overnight lot was extremely uneven. $15 a night. Scenic overlook hike 1.7 miles one way for those who want to stretch their legs.
12 pretty tree filled sites, tables, firepits, $15 a night. The road through is full of pot holes but don't let it deter you, it just requires a little navigation. Nice space between sites for quiet and privacy. Restrooms, bear proof trash. One public use cabin. A great place to get away for quiet to reconnect and think.
Right outside Delta Junction this campground has a great day use area with multiple picnic tables and grills. A small picnic pavillion also adds to the day use appeal. Quiet sites with enough separation of peace and privacy. Firewood for sale $8 a bundle or 2 for $16. Close too all the Delta history and a great little stop off campground.
This weekend led us north up to Delta Junction. We'd originally booked a campsite at Clearwater Lodge but changed our minds and chose to stay at Clearwater State Recreation site after doing a drive-thru. 16 sites with two pull throughs, toilets, tables, water pump, and boat launch, all along the Clearwater Creek perfect for fishing grayling. Right next door to the Clearwater Lodge which has a wonderful outside deck a bar and awesome food for if you're not in the mood to cook after a day of fishing. $15 a night for camping and $10 for the boat launch, or $5 for day parking.
We really loved it here! This was our second time to the campground. The first time was on a weekend and every single spot was full. This time we arrived on a weekday and it made a world of difference - there were only a few other people around! The campsites were huge (see photo) and there was a lot of privacy between spots. The lake is lovely and there is a rental place that you just have to call and they’ll be there promptly. The bathrooms were also very clean and well maintained. We will definitely be back
We ended up here Memorial Day weekend because the other sites around Delta were full, but boy am I glad we made it. The campsites are large enough for multiple tents, have fire rings, and most have picnic tables. The bathrooms are also well maintained and the spots spaced out enough so you’re not right on top of your neighbors. What really makes the campground, though, are two things: Number one, NO BUGS! We saw maybe 5 mosquitoes over two days (which is unheard of in interior Alaska), and number two, THE VIEWS! Behind most of the sites is access to Donnelly Creek and boy oh boy the views of the Alaska Range are magnificent. We had a beautiful walk along the path and while it was windy, it was a beautiful day. The only negative is the amount of traffic in the highway nearby because of the proximity to the pipeline, but it’s not something that will keep us away.
Convenient location near Delta Junction. Excellent camping spots with jaw dropping views on clear days. The Alaska Range is breathtaking. Bathrooms well maintained. Great place stay a night or two and if you’re lucky to enjoy the Northern Lights.
