Hatcher Pass backcountry

Absolutely love Hatcher Pass, have hiked or camped there every year. I usually stay on the Archangel side. There is a remote spot near the end of the road, down by the river, with a makeshift bench and a fire ring. Does have an outhouse nearby. Beautiful views, mountains, sunsets. Hiking trails all around. The lodge at Hatcher is about a 10-15 minute drive.

Porcupine campground, Hope, AK

Small campground, limited spots. Best to call ahead and reserve dates. Gorgeous views of Turnagain Arm and sunrise/sunset. Down the road from a fabulous coffee shop.

Upper Skilak Lake

Quick visit while exploring the Kenai peninsula. Clean sites. Lots of bear scat! Have bear spray and keep you food in designated bear proof containers at campground. Close to plenty of lakes and hiking trails.

Tangle Lakes campground

Camped here plenty of times, mile 21 along Denali hwy. Beautiful area and views, always clean. Picnic tables and fire rings. Most sites have raised grassy areas for tent camping.
