Overall Rating
  1. Somewhat remote yet visited by many locals :).
  2. The lake (pond) is stocked with rainbows. Best fishing is at the head of the lake by the highway - during the evening.
  3. Can be BUGGY if no breeze.
  4. You will also get various 4-legged visitors; usually a moose but have seen a few bears wander through the campground.
  5. Tonsina Lodge is right down the road. Pretty decent Russian Food.
  6. Serves as a starting point for rafting the Tonsina River or access to various ATV trails.
  7. Closest store is at the top of the hill 5 miles away. There is another one in Kenny Lake (15 miles with gas station).
  8. Cell coverage is hit/miss. Better once you get on top of the hill but provided by a local provider.
