Quiet Seclusion

Camping is free and no registration required, just set up in an open spot. Spots are secluded and spaced far apart. Sites are nothing but a gravel pad. A communal cooking, fire, and food storage area is provided. Non-potable well water. Clean vault toilets. Very quiet. The weather was often much…

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.

Lovely campground tucked into the woods outside of main Seward township. Lots of open space. Clean restrooms and a playground for the kiddos!

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.

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.

The great thing about this place was the price point at which it’s going for definitely makes you want to stay twice as long

Online registration, Huge sites, Amazing views, and a well maintained campground this place has it all. And cell AND internet service. Many Alaska campers know that one bar of cell service is a luxury but being able to get your email too. This is glamping.

Need 4x4 for this road. Pack it in, pack it out.

The road after the sign is rough and a good 4 X 4 or ATV is recommended. This 7-mile hiking trail will take you to Lost Lake. After a 2-mile incline hike the trail opens up and levels off half way in.

The Forest service recommends that you camp on Lost Lake at designated campsites. This is…

Primitive but beautiful

Another campground I never knew of. Primitive campsites with stone rings for camp fires. Amazing place to camp of the weather cooperates.

There is no sign showing you to turn into the campground just a dirt road that leads into gravel area for parking.

There are many connecting trails across…

Worth the hike

This is an awesome location, certainly worth the hike. You should plan to stay a couple nights if possible. Typical forest service cabin, right on the river, with very likely nobody else around for miles. Great Alaskan experience.

Russian Lake

The Barber Cabin is just one of many forest service cabins available for rent around the state. All are in outstanding locations, and this is one of my favorites. There are lots of bear in the area, and for those wanting the security of 4 walls, this is a great option. The camping at the lower…

One of our favorite campgrounds

Russian River is a very popular campground June-Aug...and particularly during the Red Salmon runs which start roughly the second week of June and July...and peak over a roughly two week period for each run. No hookups, but bathrooms in each campground and a dump station on the way out. Expect to…

Flush toilets!!!!!

Okay so basically if there is running water and a soap dispenser the campground gets an automatic 3 stars. But this is a really nice campground. Probably my favorite in Alaska this season and I’ve been to a lot.

Tall trees. But come prepared for rain. You can see through the trees to the other…
