Lake Beauty

Lake access, picnic area, trails, pretty forest areas , host, no pull through sites however so large rigs may be tight. In my video I accidentally state no motorized boats on the lake but yes they are allowed. Bear proof trash. FCFS, firewood 8 and 2 for 15

Canoe Trails!

6 miles of canoe trails on Nancy Lake to keep you nice and busy all weekend long. Tons of hiking, camp host, firewood for sale $8 or 2 for $15, several lake access day use sites with picnic tables and fire rings. Bear proof trash so they are here people.

Underwhelmed

Mainly just a parking lot, good access to deshka landing for fishing, camp host, dry camping, $15 FCFCS. The fire here a few years ago have left the drive into the campground sad and burnt out, but new life is now growing on some.

Beautifully tucked away

Far enough off the main highway to feel away from it all. Two lakes to fish with hiking trails to explore. Ranger talks nightly. Nice large sites with a huge group area. Some sites are FCFS but most reservable on line and booked way in advance. Firewood available for purchase and pavillion is rentable for events. All sites have electric too. Beautiful campground with clean bathrooms.

Awesome Gem in the Woods

Wonderful fishing access to Montana Creek, nicely wooded secluded spots with no hookups, some wide open spots with hookups available up front but no privacy. Quaint little store with wonderfully friendly host. Great hiking trails down to the confluence of Montana Creek into the Susitna River. Recycling bins for plastic bottles as aluminum cans available. Loved the trees and greenery but quick access to fishing made this campsite ideal for us.

Tight & Train Tracks

Not the best of RV camp spots that we've had, but at least it was close to downtown Talkeetna. The campgound backs up against the railroad tracks so at least twice a day you get to hear the trains go through. Yes the freight train going through in the early morning woke us up. Friendly owner, showers, and a small gift shop made this spot a bit more tolerable. Only a few spots had trees between each other. More of a parking lot than a true camoground.

Friendly Homey Campground

Operated by JJS, Jennifer, James and Steve this is a wonderful campground for fishing and relaxing the weekend away. Open year round with great prices too. On the confluence of the Susitna and Kashwitna rivers is it a great launching off spot for fishing. A good mix of open sites overlooking the Susitna river on loop A, and also more private sites on loops B and C. Pet friendly with 5 new pet waste stations installed this year. Need a morning mocha, Jennifer makes the best!

Large campsites for RVs and tents

We camped here in July 2019 and we had two families. We had tons of space for a 30ft trailer and two trucks and we liked that there was a small grass area for a tent. We had electric and water hookups and we even had cell service. Most of the sites seemed big and well spaced apart so you didn’t feel like you were on top of other people. The campground was very beautiful and clean and quiet. Even the pit toilets were clean and well maintained. We found the location to be excellent - both Talkeetna and Denali NP were day trips for us. We would highly recommend this campground.

Childhood favorite! Family friendly campground with boat launch

I grew up at this campground…literally every weekend camping was spent here! Its changed since I was a kid but it's still a great campground. There are TONS of spots (60 I think) with a mix of secluded spots and also group spots. There are two main loops one in the woods and one along the river where there is a boat launch and where you can fish from shore. There are well restrooms and a shower facility as well. Definitely one to keep in the rotation of spots or to make it your go to family spot like it was ours for so many years

Some of the best Winter Camping and Snowboarding around.

This is a great place to build a snow cave or do some winter camping. It gets cold so dress warm in the -20--40 range. There are lots of great places to drive up to and snowboard to the roadway. There is no camp site so you need to pack in all your stuff. If you are into winter camping it is amazing.
