“Quiet, convenient primitive camping option for exploring Hope”

Reviewed 9/6/2019

Nightly rate: $9
Days stayed: 3
Site Number: 12
Overall Rating

We were looking for a place to stay that would be convenient to visit Hope and hike in the area. We're self-contained in our 25 foot MH and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weekend in late August. This is a nice, clean CG a mile from Hope. There are approximately 30 primitive (no hookups) sites arrayed on a loop. There are a mix of tent only, back in and pull through sites. Some are nearer the water with views while the others are in the forest. The sites are generously sized and surrounded by trees for shade and privacy. The parking pads are paved and most require some leveling. There are pit toilets and trash bins. There are water pumps without threaded hoses to fill an RV. There's no dump station. There's good ATT and Verizon cell service.

I should have written this when I was there a couple weeks ago. Uploaded the pictures and then forgot the review until I went to link to it for an upcoming blog post.

This place is BEAUTIFUL! Classic National Forest single loop campground, but it looks like it is only a couple years old. Asphalt road and parking pads. A least three toilet buildings scattered around the loop. It is dry camping, but that's why they call it camping! The campground was less than half full midweek in late May, but there were lots of reservations posted for the weekend. Looks like it's pretty popular with the Anchorage crowd.

The Geezer pass 50% discount applies - $9 for most sites including site 25 that was deep enough for the truck and trailer plus the car.

The campground is on a bluff above the south shores of Turnagain Arm, but there is essentially no views from any of the sites. There is a trail that leaves the campground and follows the arm to the west. There was AT&T coverage (they're generally better than Verizon in Alaska) but it had pretty high latency so while the signal was certainly strong enough, data rates were slow.

This is not a long term campground for those depending on solar. Most all of the sites are heavily shaded. We would have been OK in Site 25 with the portable panel, but it was just one night and the batteries were charged already.

It's quite a ways off the Seward Highway to Hope, but the campground is super nice.
