“Beautiful lake but sad circumstances ”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2019

I’ll start by saying that is is a lovely area and the lake was beautiful but to many upsetting events took place in my 4 days there.

Pros: right off the road, free, and lake is lovely.

Cons: uneven sites, no host, noise from road, local dog begging for food, and I was robbed.

I came back to this campground after staying the night at deadman’s lake CG and going to Tok for supplies. I was going to go back to deadman’s but this CG is much smaller(no big motor homes) and has better access to the lake. I decided to stay since it was closer to where I was coming from and seemed pretty nice.

Upon arrival there were only two other campers staying at the camp but only one spot that was taken was level. All other campsites were super uneven and impossible to stay at without blocks.
Next there is a very skinny but friendly dog that kept by everyday looking for love and food. He’s very nice but has no manners and when the locals who came to get him each night seem to care less if they followed there car back home or not.
Finally on my last morning there I decided to go kayaking for a short trip around the small lake. When I returned my back window was smashed in and wallet and phone were taken. Along with all my stuff being gone through. This was also when the campground was full. I saw a sketchy truck drive though the campground everyday and while I was on the water when I was robbed. The authorities were helpful but they said that this has never happened before.

So overall I would recommend staying at deadman’s lake where there’s a host and it’s not right off the road. Minus the fact I was broken into the sites were still super uneven and the location isn’t the best when wild dogs are running through your site.

The other review was so lovely and I would’ve loved to love this spot but I want to warn others of what can happen

Oh Tetlin how we miss you! We camped here on our way into Alaska and ended up staying a full week in early July 2014. We vowed to return on our way out and we did, staying another week in late August. Just a beautiful, serene spot. Waterfowl galore. Loons and trumpeter swans serenade you. Beavers are active and fun to watch, slapping their tails when you paddle too close. Lake Yarger is beautiful and always offers something new in every light. A small campground - not for big rigs but up to 24 ft. Okay. No water, but vault toilet serviced regularly.
