Overall Rating

We have stayed here a couple of times, and have been here other times just for daytime recreation. A paved bike path can be found, that will take you all the way back into North Pole, fishing and swimming in the lake, or fishing in the river can all be yours. We always stay on the river side as there is less people and less mosquitos, and if there is a fresh batch of mosquitos around you better have some indoor shelter to get away from them as they will try to carry you away. If you get there after the main camping season, there is no charge yet the gates always stay open. As the other poster said, you can get a annual camping permit, however they do limit the amount of days you can stay in one month, however it could still be worth it as the reason for the limited stays at one time is to keep people from moving in. Eielson Airforce is nearby, so jet flight traffic is normal, and sometimes you can be rattled by a sonic boom so consider that your warning.
