Unless you want 50 amps and cable TV, this is the place to be in Homer. A short distance from town and from the Spit touristy stuff but far enough away from both to feel like you are camping. The beach and wildlife are amazing and the water was the warmest I have felt in Alaska. Being right off the highway it can have some auto-noise, but the nights are peaceful enough.

Bring a bunch of firewood, you will want to have fires every night on the beach.

“Fabulous location on the beach between town and the "commercial" part of the spit”

Reviewed Jul 30, 2015

Overall Rating

This park has no hookups and is basically a gravel lot, but what makes it a five is the huge rocky beach with sandbars and dunes right in front of your RV, the views of mountains over Cook Inlet, and the eagles, otters and other birds that frequent the beach. And on windy days, the kite boarders come to play. Although I will not leave Alaska for another month or so, I am sure this will be one of my favorite campgrounds, if not the favorite.

But it is a gravel lot, with average spacing between sites. The only "amenities" are port-a-potties. I would only stay here in the front row, right on the beach, and it looked like much of the back row (there are only two) was for tents and a few smaller rigs. There is a bit of road noise, as the road is basically right behind the second row, but there is lots of space between the rows. There are picnic tables, but our site didn't have one (not sure if someone moved it to the day area) but we shared a picnic table with our neighbor as it was in front of the RVs). There are also fire rings on the beach. There is no water nor dump on site, but the city dump is just a couple of minutes drive towards town, and only costs $2.

The location is at the base of the spit, so it is far enough from the shops, restaurants and small boat dock to avoid the congestion that develops there yet it's biking (there is a bike path), walking (a long walk), or a few minutes driving distance from there. It's also really close to the town center, so you have the best of both worlds.

There is lots of space on the beach to walk doggies off-leash. If I return to Homer, this is where I will stay.
