“Tranguil setting for an overnight”

Reviewed Aug 03, 2019

Overall Rating

This free campground is nicely maintained by the USF&W Service. The pit toilets are all spotless and the Gravel sites spaces far apart. Along with an interpretive trail that cuts across the campsite, there are also 6 canoes available to borrow for rides on the lake in the day use area!

“Free camping right on the lake ”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2019

Overall Rating

This is a very nice campground with great amenities. They offer free canoes and nightly talks about the area. The host were also very lovely when I was there. It’s a large campground but not a lot of camping spots so it fills up quick and the access to the lake is mostly just a dock. The lake is lovely and big but the wind blew the w... more

“Awesome Wildlife Refuge campground along the Alaska Highway. ”

Reviewed Oct 25, 2018

Overall Rating

We have stayed at this campground a couple of times, and have enjoyed our time here. Both times we have stayed there have only been a couple of other campers each time. Our stays have been during the off season, so that makes a difference and there wasn't a camp host there at the time for that reason. If you own a larger rig, take c... more

“free camping on a lake”

Reviewed May 31, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a great campground - part of the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge which has a visitor center a few miles away. Sites are level, have tables and fire pits, the vault toilets are clean, and there is plenty of space between sites. There is a day use area with a dock which was not in yet as it was early season. From that area t... more

“WOW! This is free?”

Reviewed Aug 04, 2017

Overall Rating

Great campground with very clean pit toilets, dock, camp host, life jackets to borrow, swimming area, big campsites with privacy and Tetlin NWR talk every evening. Small campground but well worth the stop before or after crossing the AK/CA border. Lakeview campground looked nice also but was full when we pulled in.

“This is one of two campgrounds in Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge”

Reviewed Feb 25, 2016

Overall Rating

We did not actually camp in this campground as we camped at Lakeview Campground also part of Tetlin. We did visit this campground to paddle in the lake here and we checked it out pretty well. This is a bigger campground in area and the lake is much bigger. Still okay for kayaking but keep your eye on the wind. More people here but stil... more
