Four years ago I wrote a review after our first stay here. Not much to add except that we enjoyed four days of peace and quiet. Price is still $15. This time we stayed in Site 7, complete with a bit of view through the trees. 35 feet is likely as big as you could go here.

Overall Rating

This is one of two campgrounds that are a part of the Ninilchik State Recreation Area. This campground is on the south side of the mouth of the Ninilchik River on a bluff above the beach. The entrance is a gravel road next to the Buzz Espresso shop. There are 14 sites including three double sites. A separate dump station ($5) facility located on a paved road to the right just before entering the campground. There is a campground host on site. The road within the campground and all of the sites are gravel. The sites have no services but there is fresh water near the center of the loop and at a location on the dump station loop. At least seven of the sites (including 2 doubles) back up to a partial view of the Ninilchik River and the small Russian Orthodox Church on the far side. One side of the third double site (#14) has a wonderful side view across the Cook Inlet to the mountains on the far side.

There is a set of stairs down to the beach. This campground is very popular when there are good clam tides, but this year clamming is closed on the east side of the inlet and the king salmon fishing is restricted to just three weekends. At noon on Wednesday prior to the Memorial Day holiday there were two campsites (plus the host) occupied but everything was full by Saturday evening.

There were five bars of fast AT&T, both 3G and 4G LTE, a good little espresso stand within walking distance, and over-the-air TV so we can watch the Indy 500. It is located near the Sterling Highway, but essentially out of sight of the road. The road noise is barely perceptible, at least at site 14. Don’t know if it is true all summer, but we really enjoyed watching the bald eagles and otters from our site in May. Promise not to tell anyone else about this place! The only way it could improve is if it were free.

Just Finding Our Way: Gone Fishing
