It is midway down the Homer Spit. Cost is $72/night Typical for every where we have stayed in Alaska it is a gravel lot pretty closely spaced. Full hook ups. Have sites which face the bay need to reserve in advance. I would stay here again. I like everything but the price.
We went from Ohio to Alaska last year with a 36' fifth wheel camper and stayed at 56 campgrounds in three months. Heritage was one of our favorites. Very nice camp sites with full hookups. Excellent showers, very clean and laundry facilities larger than any other campground we have ever stayed at. Very nice people working there that are always willing to help in any way they can. Great coffee shop with doughnuts and a relaxing place to sit and enjoy them. It's all right on the water and a two minute drive to all the charters on the spit. I highly recommend this campground.
Camped not exactly at this location but down the road a bit.. tent camping only. $20 a night per tent, per tent. First come, first serve. Pretty stoked I got to see homer before it gets it’s heavy tourist season. Worth checking out, had a nice cup of joe at Coal Town Coffee, cute shops as well.
We ferried from Homer, which is a GORGEOUS ride. As mentioned below, we did an out and back hike from the South Grace Ridge trailhead to the summit of the ridge which provided some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen! The yurt is spacious and comfortable with its padded bunks. Such a beautiful experience.
The yurt is approx. 12 miles from the spit, on the N. shore of Tutka Bay, and is about 100 yds. from the drop-off on a rocky beach and is protected from breezes by the mature forest found in Tutka Bay. A solid gravel bottom provides good places to anchor your own boat. Suggested trips: The yurt is very close to the South Grace Ridge trailhead. Hike up switchbacks through the old growth forest, traverse the alder and grass transition zones, and find the alpine zone at about 1800’. There are spectacular views from the sharp ridges you encounter as you head N. towards the summit of the ridge. Look for rock ptarmigan in the alpine areas, mt. goats and marmot. Tutka Bay is also a perfect place to kayak, weather permitting. Go S.E. to the head of the bay and look for beaches and coves exposed at low tide that will provide landing spots. Head N.W. and just outside the mouth of Tutka Bay you’ll enter Little Tutka and find the Herring islands. You can also use the yurt as a starting place for a multi-day kayak trip, heading up the bay.
Heritage RV Park is the nicest campground on the spit. It is perfect for RV's and campers. However, they do not allow tent camping unless you are using the tent with your RV. There are electrical and sewer hookups. The sites are very close together, but they are right on the water so the views are great. There are showers, toilets, a common area, drink machines, gift shop, and everything you need in the main building.
I've heard that the beach front sites go quickly at this campground, but if you can get one I highly recommend it! If you are tent camping you can pitch your tent right on the beach (be tide aware). Beach sites are $35 and other sites are $30. Bathrooms are clean and have lots of sinks and stalls. Showers are $1 and are not timed. Laundry is $2 to wash and $1.50 for 30 mins. of drying. There is also a gift shop and WiFi here.
I love Homer this campground is right on the beach. Amazing views a chance to see whales from your tent what could be better.
Of course this being a prime location for tourists, locals, and others it can get pretty crowded especially during the “summer.” The views are so amazing you’ll quickly forget about your close neighbors. Walking distance to almost everything. Sunsets are out of this world.
Easy access for all sizes of campers.
This hidden gem is located right off the Sterling Highway as you enter Ninilchik. It has bathrooms on site, with other amenities typical of state rec campgrounds (water, tables, fire rings etc.). What this location has over other campgrounds is an amazing overlook out onto the historic village and famous Russian Orthodox Church, and a panoramic view of Cook Inlet with stunning, postcard worthy looks out toward Mt Iliamna and Mt Redoubt. The campsites are reasonably separated from one another, and there is room to park RVs at the individual sites. There is also an RV dump location nearby. The campground is located high on a hill above the Village, however there is a walkway path with stairs for beach and village access.
