Nice, clean campsites. Everything is in pretty close-quarters but the campground seems quiet and family friendly. The state did a good job of making the sites level and planted grass in the tent spots. Finger Lake itself is great for different activities and it’s a realitivly quiet area for being so close to town.
My biggest downside are the prices. $25-$30/night. Pretty steep cost for no hook-ups and to not have a more private party setting. It’s just my opinion, but if you are in a tent site, you really shouldn’t have to pay over $20 (at the very most) to camp. We need to keep camping an affordable hobby for families (and just people in general).
First trip to Valdez and we stayed here due to a recommendation. Prices were, in my opinion, a little steep considering what you got. RV spots were TIGHT and awning to awning with your neighbor. Entire place was a gravel parking lot. They do have a nice facility with clean restrooms and showers, fun community fire pit and nice views. You’re literally right in town. You must pay in advance, of course and they do not give refunds, period. We had to cut our trip short and we’re out the cost of a night of camping. Policies are there, which I can respect. We just didnt forsee our stay being shorter- only due to the fact that unless you’re out on the water, there really isn’t much to do there. All in all a fine experience, just not my kind of camping personally.
We stumbled upon this campground in our way home from Valdez over the 4th of July holiday one year. We were pleasantly surprised! The place was very clean and huge! Kind folks who were happy to chat and help us out. Beautiful property with a little river running through it. Hiking trails, private spots and family events available. Very child-friendly place. The showers and bathrooms were clean and their store was very nice and convenient. Overall great place and we will venture to Flennallen again to stay here.
We have stayed here a few times and it has been nice. The area is great for fishing, we have always only fished there for silvers in early fall. Many places to hike around and you’re right on the creek. Campground is kept well and clean. I don’t feel like we had enough privacy between camp spots.
I grew up camping at Deception Pass with my family and we always had a great time. The camp sites are generous sized enough and we always felt like we had a good amount of privacy. The views are unbelievable and there are many places to hike around. Some wildlife can be seen around the grounds and out by the water. Overall a peaceful place to camp and enjoy nature.
This is a family favorite. We enjoy the beautiful lake, hiking trails and just the peace and quiet the campground has to offer. Sites are pretty generous and private. Hiking trails are bountiful and beautiful. There is a canoe trail between some lakes around the area and South Rolly Lake itself is fun to take your canoe or kayak out on.
