Just outside of Palmer by the intersection of the Parks and Glenn Highways, this is a peaceful, quiet campground. That’s because motorized boats aren’t allowed on the lake, and the campground gates close each evening at 10 p.m. (It used to be quite a party spot, but that’s changed in the last five years).
There are 10 sites here, good for RVs or tents. They all overlook the lake, which is open to canoes and kayaks. You can rent a boat here, or mountain bike/hike the trails, which connect to the Matanuska Greenbelt system.
On hot days, the place will be filled with kids swimming, while on cooler days, the fishermen and canoeists will have the lake to themselves.
