Where to Stay

RV Parks & Campgrounds

Season: May 25 to Aug 31

Halfway between Anchor­age and Glen­nallen, where you’ll find a vari­ety of accom­mo­da­tions, a deli­cious din­er, and tons of adventures

Be care­ful, it’s easy to miss this turn-off as you drop down the hill, but look out for the sign Cari­bou Creek Recre­ation­al Area.” This sel­dom-used camp­ground is a qui­et place to camp, away from high­way noise. It has fire rings and pic­nic tables, and there’s a trail to the creek. It’s a one-mile walk to the water. It’s a nice stream and it’s part of the State Recre­ation­al Gold Min­ing Area. So bring a pan and try your luck!

The camp­ground is pret­ty open, since bark bee­tles killed the big, old spruce trees. The camp­sites attract RVers and campers, and each of the 24 sites has a fire ring and pic­nic table. There’s potable water at a hand pump.

The prop­er­ty includes a hot tub and sauna, and the grounds have gor­geous views as well as access to 12 miles of main­tained trails.
