We were passing through and needed a place to stay for the night. On a weekend during the height of summer. It was very busy and crowded and noisy. But it served its purpose, needed a place to rest our heads for the night. When we want quiet, we'll head out into the woods.
Tent camping options in Talkeetna are limited. Thisnhround isnlovayed at the end of the main road in town. It’s super cheap and adequate space for a large tent . Dogs are allowed and there are fireworks and picnic tables at each site. It was overly quiet at night and I felt bad staying up with friends, taking and playing cards but quiet can be good . The views of Denali are just steps away towards he river. One of the best views of Denali in my opinion! One Flush toilet and running water available onsite! Close walk to restaurants.
I live in Talkeetna and we still frequent this campground. Close to town but tucked away, this campground has a lot to offer. Larger sites for multiple campers and Rvs and smaller sites tucked in the trees to protect your tent. If you get their early enough you can get a site that allows for you to launch your boat and park it right at camp as well!
