We stopped here after Kelly was too crowded for us to fit. We waited for another RV to leave and snagged their waterfront spot. This place gets packed when weather is nice. Overall a very peaceful spot.

Peterson Lake Campground is a level, gravel parking lot on the northern shore of Peterson Lake. There are four sites around the edge of the parking lot as designated by tables, two of which are directly on the lake. There's a small boat ramp and a single cast concrete pit toilet. The campground (and Kelly Lake from the same entrance road) is not well signed at the highway (near mile marker 69) and thus doesn't get much traffic. Great access to the lake, and while my phone didn't show any Verizon 3G bars, I was able to get 4 bars with the antenna and amplifier.

Only one other boat on the lake when I was there in mid-June, 2013. Everyone else was shoulder to shoulder on the Kenai.
