Overall Rating

After a very full day in Whittier, we stopped here for the night before heading back to Anchorage.
The sites are a decent distance away, though some would be hard pressed to fit a larger RV. Our 24’ fit fine, and probably would have fit in most of the sites.
The campsite is close to the road, but there is very limited traffic so it didn’t bother us a bit.
There is a fire pit and pit toilets, but no hookups. There is also bear boxes and trash cans.
