Beautiful backdrop

Pretty private and a great location. Tons of opportunities for outdoor activities from hiking, biking, paddling, and ATV on specific days. Lots to love. Prepare for chilly weather any time of year because of the elevation

Summit Lake need I say more

This is a really different campground.  Built on the side of a mountain it has some strange campsites.  Its close proximity to Summit Lake and lake access earned it 4 stars.  Really great place to take a kayak.  If it was not for the water aspect it would have only gotten a 3 star review.  Some of the sites have the picnic tables at a higher elevation than the parking pad. If you have accessibility issues this is something you will want to watch out for.   There are lots of bugs so bring you bug dope. The spots are large so you can fit a big rig in them however the campground is a bit tight so you will have to watch the turning of these bigger rigs.   Cell Service: no Internet: no 2020 Cost: $18 - $28 Distance from Anchorage: 75 miles Bug Factor (1 minimal to 10 too many to enjoy): 6

Clean, Great Service and Beautiful Park

From the moment you step into a clean office, the staff are very friendly and answer all my questions. They even bring the fire wood to your site. We didn’t use the park bathrooms but I did se them cleaning them frequently. Great picnic area and even has basketball courts. We got a spot right in front of the river and it was Ana amazing awakening. This is by far one of the best parks I’ve seen in Alaska and prices are super affordable. Only reason is missing a 5* is because there is no R.V. dumping station and limited electrical spots.

Worst camp ever

No garbage cans (not even a bear proof). Camp host nowhere to be found. It was full packed. This was the 3rd weekend in Aug. The outhouses stank.

Wet

This is Whitter. Land of beauty, glacier, the tunnel, and wet. Maybe not always rain but definitely wet.

This is a very small town with amazing views. Campground is situated right off the water and is very, very damp. I would not suggest tent camping if you have the option. This is a great place to car camp and the cost through the tunnel is $13.00. Views of glaciers great you as soon as you exit the tunnel. The best spots are right along the waters edge, but again bring your Extratufs.

If you are in a tent camping stay here

This campground features 50 camping sites some are along the creek side. Make sure you plan ahead since the tunnel runs one way once an hour. Check your departures times. The tunnel is always a fun trip.

The cost is good at $20 an RV and $10-$20 for a car and tent depending on the number of people in the party. With level spots and little other tent camping choices these spots can fill up. There are no reservations and sites are first come first serve. There is plenty to do in Whitter, the drive, the tunnel, and the price make this a great option to stay.

Always plan for rain.

Stay here or day trip here

Really nice staff at the gate. Great Holidays Campgrounds takes reservations on their website but close it off 48 hours prior to your arrival date. So left over spots become first come first serve.

Well maintained facility. Is more a parking lot style but there are lots of options here especially if you have a boat or water craft.

Worth the stop

This is a great option if you are traveling between Anchorage and Fairbanks and want to stop in between. This campground is situated right on the river and when it is clear there are good views of Denali. Behind a gate you are sure not to get only campground or boat traffic.

With an $8 WHEELBARROW of wood you are sure to keep that campfire going. There are a number of sites along the rivers edge or if you have little ones there are 26 spots far enough form the water you can ease your worries. The prices are good so if you make your way here its is worth a stay. If you are visiting go to their Facebook page and they give regular temperature/weather updates in the summer which is nice.

Great campground!

Friendly staff, nice campsites and fishing. They even had a coffee shop!

Nice little getaway

This campground is nice, picturesque, and spacious. Lots of trees for privacy! We like it because it’s close to home and a town, so a morning trip to get coffee is not out of the question. I hear that at least one of the local pizza places delivers here too! (Haven’t tested that out personally.) Nice, paved, level campsites for RVs, and plenty of space to put a tent on softer ground.
