Though it’s challenging to condense all of Alaska’s beautiful camping spots into one list, there are a few that have been cherished and highly regarded by locals as well as visitors for decades. Each campground in Alaska holds something truly unique and special for each camper.
Since camper’s preferences vary, we’ve compiled a list that features the best activities and attractions that can be found at the state’s most highly rated campgrounds.
- Brushkana Campground: Located close to Denali National Park, right off of Brushkana Creek, this campground is known for its easy access to wilderness exploration and, of course, animal sightings. The site permits RVs, cars, and tent campers. It also contains a public restroom and running water.
- Quartz Creek Campground: Located in Cooper Landing, about an hour away from Lost Lake, this is a camping spot of unmatched, pristine scenery right alongside the beautiful Kenai Lake. Campers can spend their weekend fishing, relaxing, and enjoying breathtaking views over the lake’s horizon.
- Red Squirrel Campground: Located in Fairbanks, this unique campground is known for its strategic positioning to view the Northern Lights when they decide to make an appearance.
