I am looking for a campsite put tent down hangout by myself cook on the fire wood buy at the store can you ask much cost stay out here for one night.

Didn’t like highway noise and lots of traffic drives through

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.

Lots of bugs

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.

Backcountry sites and road side

Follow the road to the North trail head. There are a number of campsites across the bridge, on the side of the road or in the parking lot. The restrooms are a single pit toilet in the parking lot at the trail head. If you are biking or hiking be sure to sign the book. This place gets buggy so bring bug dope.

Such a beautiful drive

This is a standard campground with large spots that should fit the biggest RV. There are some pull through spots as well. Bring bug dope or a screen shelter because the mosquitoes are big and hungry even late into the season.

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

If you are looking for a central RV park this is the place

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

About an hour from Anchorage

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

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

Campground could is a little love

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.
