Just working for the weekends! Loving the new RV and exploring Alaska one campsite at a time.
Family Awesomeness!

Although there is no no alcohol allowed this campground is just pure cool. Quiet times from 10pm to 8am, they have a dump, day use area, tons of trails, and fire rings. There are several loops to choose from with a paved RV section up top. Sherrod loop is only 30 feet but much more secluded than above but with no hookups. Pull throughs sites above with over 87 sites total including the paved and dirt road ones. 4 pavilions with a playground and dog station.

Stop Over Site

Full hookups, but the place is for sale now that it is the end of the season. Hopefully it will get bought or reopen as it is a nicely situated RV spot with a restaurant on the premises. A great stop over spot.

Gorgeous Glacier Views

Never would have thought to stop at this small but beautifully gem. Only 10 campsites total at $20 a night this place is just orgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. The fall leaves here were so beautiful. Hiking nearby gives you something do besides just sit and rejuvanate.

Long Term Gem

A bit wide open and highway noise but on lake with laundry, showers, full hookups, firewood for sale, restaurant, matanuska lake access, long term parking too. Some sites have gorgeous lake views.

Pass it by

Pot hole parking lot. No alcohol, locked in at night, reservable, not every site has tables, firepitsx half the sites are locked off not in use, restrooms, small picnic pavillion, boat launch, $20 a night, host firewood $6

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.

Beautiful!

Tons of trails, lake access, dog park, playground, electric hookups, forested descent separation between sites, group site, restrooms, swimming, kayaking, canoe, and fish, 2 pavilions, 2 playgrounds too.

Perfect Fishing Campground

The Russian River Campgrounds are actually made up of five loops, King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Rainvow Trout, Red Salmon, and Steelhead. There are 4 handicapped designated spots, but each site has a picnic table and firepit. Nice separated some with views of the mountains and even a few with partial river view. Perfect fishing spot and also a nice paved home to the Russian River Falls. Watch for bears at all times and always have your fishing license on ya.

First to Review
Into the Woods

Small campground only 9 sites, no host so pack in your wood. This poor campground needs some road work, lots of pot holes and short sites so large rigs won't fit here. You pass over three one lane bridges with a max of 10 tons allowed. Set far back tons of privacy. #4 has a creek view, #9 and #7 were both also nice sites. Large sites great for tents however with food lockers. Watch for bear activity as we saw fresh Scat. If you want to get away from people this canpground is for you.

Fishing Oh My

Along the Kenai River a great place for RVer's that are needing a fishing fix. The main lodge is just a short walk away too. Grocery store, shower, laundry ADA accessible, Ice and Propane make this a wonderful stop. All sites are a bit close together but there are trees on the outside.

Hidden Fun

Hidden Lake canpground is made up of three sections. Skyview loop the furthest from the lake is the largest with sites large enough for any rig. #6, 10 15 and 20 are handicapped only, do not park here unless you have tags or hanging proof. Ridge Loop and Lake Loop are both tighter and have signs warning of limited manuverbility. Sure #6 on lake loop is ADA and #1 on Ridge loop is ADA. There are trails down to the lake from the upper two, ridge and skyview. There is a free boat launch to access Hidden lake which has trout, dolly garden, kokanee and land locked salmon. Seven day limit at only $10 a day. There are day use covered picnic pavilions, an amphitheater, hiking trails and camp host. The walk in tent area is very private and tree covered. All sites have tables and fire rings. Love this place!

Outdoor Heaven

Fishing, hiking, boating galore. Paved pads with gorgeous sites some right on the water. Tent sites at $5 a night and Standard sites for camper and RV's run $10. This beautiful lake was hit by the Swan Lake fire this year and the campgound has been closed, however we drove through last weekend and the campground survived the fire! Still nicely surrounded with trees for privacy we were very happy to see it undamaged.

Fire Damaged

Went to check out Lower Skilak Lake Canpground and if course due to the Swan Lake fire this year it is closed. Unfortunately the fire damage looks to have maybe taken out the whole campground so please double check before you go. I hope they restore this beautiful campground for next season.

Summit Fishing

This campground located on Summit Lake may not have hookups but the views and the fishing are worth it. $18 a night, with 35 sites to choose from. Our favorites are #1, 6, 8 10-12 due to water access. #24 is a beautiful mountain view pull through. The o ly downside as that most sites have picnic table and firepit behind the site and with a ramp up to them. Vault toilets, boat ramp, and drinking water all available. Tent sites with pads are over a quaint foot bridge to allow some separation from the road.

Beautiful Mountains

Beautiful mountain views 18 sites good for RV and campers and 19 tent sites. $14 a night, only dry sites. Located along granit Creek which has Dolly Varden. Food lockers, dumpster, hand driven water pump. These are reservable online but I have never seen this campground completely full. Off season there is no trash service or water. Great place to spot mountain goats too.

The Pass

Situated nicely in the Turnagain Pass this campground boasts big sites, tons of hiking options and beauty every way you look. Site with mountain views too! No phone service so you can fully unhook and hide. No campground host so make sure to bring your own firewood. 12 campsites at $14 a night, food lockers provided but no trash service so if you pack it in you pack it out.

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.

Overpriced and under developed

This campground is easy to miss as it sits below the main road. We went to stay here, even booking our site only to cancel due to medical reason and they only refunded us half. They charge $2 per dog per day on top of the $22 a night site fee, which for Alaska I have never encountered before. The top sites are up a one way road on the mountain side and luckily we did not encounter anyone when we went up. The idea of lugging our water gear down was not enticing and they over price their water gear. All in all an ok campground just not our style. Also this is an alcohol free campground.
