Mountainous Campsite

We stayed at this campsite for one night. There was some woods separating the campsites. Some campsites were right along Granite Creek. It is dry camping as well. You can reserve your campsite since the campground is in Chugach National Forest. That is convenient to do on the Internet, however the website charges an extra $10 for reservations on top of the $14 for the campsite. So, it is somewhat expensive for dry camping. If you can catch a sunny day, it is a beautiful area to camp in!

Remote Campground

This campground was the best my family has stayed at yet in Alaska. We love the more remote and secluded campgrounds such as Hidden Lake. It is very wooded and there are several trails around the campsite. Some lead to lookout spots where you can view the surrounding mountains and lakes. You can boat and fish on Hidden Lake as well. There are no electric or water hookups though. However, there is a dump station as you head out from the campground and there are a few water well hand pumps around the camp.

Secluded Campground

We stayed at this campground for 2 nights in early June. The campground was clean and nicely wooded throughout. It was mostly empty at the time of our visit, with the closest neighbor two spots down or 75 yards away. Tolsona creek runs through the campgrounds, making for a relaxing atmosphere. Most spots have electric and water hookups, with a dump site near the office. They have showers and laundry facilities. The biggest drawback was the mosquitoes! Otherwise, our family enjoyed the campground. It was about 15 miles to Glennallen for supplies.
