Beautiful morning views

The campsite was simple and great to be in! The views towards the mountains were spectacular and watching the mountains reflect on the waters surface was breath taking! Make sure you secure your spot early.

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…

Fun place with restaurant, bar, store, liquor, to-go foods.

Great base location in the central Kenai Peninsula. Easy commute to Seward, Kenai, Sterling, (1 hour) or Homer (2 hours). Many excellent trails all around the mountain and Kenai and Russian River area where Gwins Lodge and Roadhouse is located. Primitive only. Porta-John. Bring water. Fire wood for…

  • Kenai River is 100 ft. across the Sterling Hwy. The Russian River comes in about 2 miles downstream. Famous for salmon fishing. Reservation@GwinsLodge.com

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…

Tent campers paradise

There are so many options to backcountry camping and you don’t even have to walk very far. You can drive down and camp at the pull offs. RVs are not recommended on this road.

The deep you go the less bugs

This may have the nicest wood panels ever stuck to a plastic port a potty. The bugs are pretty heavy right next to the river but deep in the woods are are very few. Great place for exploring. Walk in campsites are very close and have bear proof food storage.

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…

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…

Not the best in the valley

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…

My favorite place in Alaska

The “city” of Girdwood is awesome. This place has trails that can take 30 minutes to complete up to 2 days (Crow’s Pass) with a views that can’t be seen anywhere else. There’s Alaska pretty and then there’s this place.

For the winter, I would still recommend coming out here if for nothing more…
