This review is for the City of Homer campground. There is a commercial site with this same name at the end of the spit (much more expensive and not any nicer for motorhomes). Level gravel parking lot with tight sites right on Kachemak bay and roomier sites just back a little bit. Spectacular views of mountains and glaciers. Many folks stay here with their boats. Fishing cleaning station and dump station available ($2). Easy walking to tourist activities: fishing, flight seeing, bear viewing, water taxis. Bike/walking trail nearby. Watch for eagles on the lampposts. A bit noisy and a somewhat of an industrial feel. We'd stay here again.
Very nice municipal park. Electric hookup sites in open grassy area next to local park with playground. Grassy sites have some leveling challenges. Non-electric sites in forested area with good privacy. Under a small airport approach, but not much traffic. A few short hiking trails that need some maintenance. Clean restrooms. No WiFi, but reasonable 3G coverage. We'd certainly stay here again.
Clean park with great views. Excellent management. Above average Wi-Fi. Good beach access and nice walking. Looks right out on the volcanoes of Cook Inlet. Sunsets are fantastic. Sites are a bit narrow. The staff tries to spread folks out, which helps. We'd stay there again.
Wonderful National Forest park. Lovely paved, level sites with great privacy. Spectacular mountain and glacier views, even better if you drive or walk closer to the Portage Valley visitor center. Great place to stay for the 26 glacier cruise in Whittier: highly recommended. You get to Whittier via a shared 2.5 mile railroad tunnel. Eastbound on the half-hour, westbound on the hour. Trains, whenever. Williwaw creek has excellent salmon viewing. Outrageously beautiful graded and boardwalk trail, the Blue Ice Trail. Great hosts. We'd certainly stay here again.
Excellent campground just 12 miles from Anchorage. Just off highway 1, so there is some road noise. Right on the Eagle River. Good access to Eagle River Nature Center and trail system (highly recommended): 12 mile drive. Close to Fred Meyer and Wal-Mart. All sites are paved and pretty level. Dedicated sites on the river for tents. Really good choice for quick access to Anchorage. Very well maintained park. No running water except at the dump station. 4 day limit: more than enough time for Anchorage chores. Good 3G access.
