Great place to get out for a quick trip or trail trip for children. We had a few campsites next to each other between our groups which was great. The kids had a park they could play at, needs a lot of attention though. Seems after hour parties come here and don’t clean up. Big yard area in park to throw football or small soccer game. There’s a volleyball net set up. Also grills and covered pavilions for day use. At the camp site there is areas for fire and most have picnic tables. Very close spots with paved road in. Bathrooms available in day use area, locked at night according to the sign but we used them later than said times. Short walk to the river, we had a blast with kids and dogs at the water.
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.
Right off the Highway this RV park is not bad. Although I prefer my camping more rural. If you are visiting and just want to start one way out of Anchorage this could be a choice for you. With everything from cabins, to full RV hook ups, to dry RV camping, and lakeside tent spots this is a good option for a first stop on a great Alaska adventure. Because of it’s proximity to Anchorage, Wasilla, and Palmer you are not far from anything. There is good cell and internet service here as well and stores to get everything you need. Spaces are close to each other and I would not recommend spending my entire camping trip there, but they are a good option if you need something close. Cell Service: Yes Internet: Yes Distance from Anchorage: Bug Factor (1 minimal to 10 too many to enjoy): 45 miles
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
This is one of the better mat su campgrounds. It does have some great day use parking and 39 campsites. On clear days the lake is beautiful. The trails are nice and well-maintained we also enjoyed the dog park. There are a number of pavilions that can be used but people with reservations to have priority.
This is not my favorite campground in the Matsu Valley. It is a great opportunity if you have a group of people who are looking for campsites right next to each other. Camping spots are not dispersed and you can see into the campsite next to you. This is not a bad campsite, it just would not be my first or second choice.￼
