Great location

Ocean view site was beautiful. The place has a great common area/coffee place/gift shop, and over all a great atmosphere. Looking forward to visit this place again

Good spot to relax

We stayed for a few nights from midweek. There are 9 large campsites that can accommodate RVs and small groups. There are fire rings, a vault toilet, and a launch ramp into the river. You can access the lake from the river, but is about a mile upstream. There is not really a trail to reach the…

In the middle of it all

We stayed for 5 days in June. The fishing access was great. The staff keep this places very nice. I don’t know if it is just because they are clearing out all of the Bettle killed spruce, but they give you a real bundle of firewood for $6. I thought I would carry 2 bundles back to camp, but had to…

Can’t beat the location and views!

Very walkable and there are rental bikes all over to ride around the spot. We at captain patties and had a great meal, got lucky and had the seat closest to the window.

Great cliff views, quiet

We stayed a few days after Memorial Day so thinks we’re still on the quiet side for camping but we were the only ones at this campground! (Halibut just south was full). It was perfect for two adults in a Campervan that like privacy. Would not be great for young children as the cliffs could be…

  • view from #13
  • very short walk from pull in to table adds to privacy
  • you can call all the volcanoes when it’s clear

Nice campground at the end of the Spit

Nice campground with amenities. Wifi is good except when the campground gets more campers like on weekends. Mostly back-in RV sites though there are a few pull through sites.

Sites are very close to each other but location and views are excellent.

Magical Experience

Our family fell in love with Homer thanks to the beauty of this wonderful area. It certainly does help to have a playground nearby for the kiddos, and wildlife galore (there were moose near our campsite). It does get quite busy here and I believe that it is because of its location on the hill,…

Walk-in camping worth it!

Such an awesome lake. We pretty much had the area to ourselves. The walk-in campsites are spacious. We had easy access to the lake. Trout were abundant.

If you find a spot grab it

With the exception of the view of your neighbors the ocean is beautiful. There are so many things to find at the city campground. Toilets are open seasonally. 34 campsites, day use area, and a gazebo to rent. They are always looking toward improvements. This is a great place to camp and spend the…

Can’t be a hillside view

If you have kids. This is the place to be. You can walk or drive here and hang out under the picnic pavilion while the kids get their energy out.

If your traveling with littles this is the place.

5 campgrounds

There are 5 campgrounds in the State recreation site. They include Coho, Silverking, Slidehole, Steelhead, and Halibut.

If you are looking for camping closer to the beach try spots at Halibut campground. There are plenty of amenities in Anchor Point including store and Post office. Plus pizza…

Love State Parks

What can I say about the views. If you are wondering those are three volcanoes you can see, Augistine, Iliamna, and Redoubt. There is no fishing here and if you can find your way down to the beach there is a whole other world. Except traffic for local residents there are usually few people and…

camping and dipnetting

Great for RV camping. Tent camping can be done, it’s all paved area so bring padding to sleep on. Very family environment, kids playing games and enjoying the outdoors. Very packed during dipnetting season.
