Perfect Fishing Campground

The Russian River Campgrounds are actually made up of five loops, King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Rainvow Trout, Red Salmon, and Steelhead. There are 4 handicapped designated spots, but each site has a picnic table and firepit. Nice separated some with views of the mountains and even a few with partial river view. Perfect fishing spot and also a nice paved home to the Russian River Falls. Watch for bears at all times and always have your fishing license on ya.

First to Review
Into the Woods

Small campground only 9 sites, no host so pack in your wood. This poor campground needs some road work, lots of pot holes and short sites so large rigs won't fit here. You pass over three one lane bridges with a max of 10 tons allowed. Set far back tons of privacy. #4 has a creek view, #9 and #7 were both also nice sites. Large sites great for tents however with food lockers. Watch for bear activity as we saw fresh Scat. If you want to get away from people this canpground is for you.

Fishing Oh My

Along the Kenai River a great place for RVer's that are needing a fishing fix. The main lodge is just a short walk away too. Grocery store, shower, laundry ADA accessible, Ice and Propane make this a wonderful stop. All sites are a bit close together but there are trees on the outside.

Hidden Fun

Hidden Lake canpground is made up of three sections. Skyview loop the furthest from the lake is the largest with sites large enough for any rig. #6, 10 15 and 20 are handicapped only, do not park here unless you have tags or hanging proof. Ridge Loop and Lake Loop are both tighter and have signs warning of limited manuverbility. Sure #6 on lake loop is ADA and #1 on Ridge loop is ADA. There are trails down to the lake from the upper two, ridge and skyview. There is a free boat launch to access Hidden lake which has trout, dolly garden, kokanee and land locked salmon. Seven day limit at only $10 a day. There are day use covered picnic pavilions, an amphitheater, hiking trails and camp host. The walk in tent area is very private and tree covered. All sites have tables and fire rings. Love this place!

Outdoor Heaven

Fishing, hiking, boating galore. Paved pads with gorgeous sites some right on the water. Tent sites at $5 a night and Standard sites for camper and RV's run $10. This beautiful lake was hit by the Swan Lake fire this year and the campgound has been closed, however we drove through last weekend and the campground survived the fire! Still nicely surrounded with trees for privacy we were very happy to see it undamaged.

Fire Damaged

Went to check out Lower Skilak Lake Canpground and if course due to the Swan Lake fire this year it is closed. Unfortunately the fire damage looks to have maybe taken out the whole campground so please double check before you go. I hope they restore this beautiful campground for next season.

Emerald River Beauty

Out 15x35 site with 35 amp hookups had great access to Kenai River and close to fishing the Russian River. Great views of the emerald green Kenai with a dock for small boat launch and fishing. Store with espresso, coffee and ice cream in site. Great spot for parking then zipping to all the fishing spots close by. There are spots that have both sewer and electric we chose views over sewer.

Right on the Kenai river

If you want to salmon fish for a few weeks every summer this is the place. You can call and check to see when there running or you can just check with Alaska Fish and Game. When they’re running in the thousands it’s pretty much full so you would need to reserve ahead. This RV Park has their own private boardwalk so it makes it a little more managed. Full hookups $70.00 plus tax.

Closed

They were bought and the new owners are not going to operate it as an RV Park.
