The vibe at Eklutna Lake Campground
Drop some Eklutna Lake Campground knowledge on us.
What's not to love about Eklutna! The views at the water's edge are beautiful. The teal glacial water is stunning. On a warmer day you'll see folks kayaking, throwing sticks for their dogs, and relaxing lake side. If you head up Twin Peaks trail, there's a bench which overlooks the lake. Keep heading up and eventually you'll get to the peak for an incredible view which stretches the length of the 13 mile lake. You may even possibly find yourself amidst some mountain sheep. We were up there this past Memorial Day weekend and saw a bear run down the mountains into some brush. As for the campsite, it's a great location. A stones throw away, opposite side of some trees which is great protection from the glacial winds. A must visit!
Hey... We have been "camping here at Eklutna" since the first week in May, 2018. We expect to move on this next Sunday, 30 Sept 2018--it's been a wonderful Spring, Summer and Fall. There were NO leaves on the trees when we move in--there was still SNOW on the ground in many places within the campground! Summer came in June, and last Sunday, the 23rd of September was the busiest day ever! Every parking lot and campground site was filled with campers, hikers, lovers holding hands, moose and bear hunters, ATVers, and folks just enjoying the beautiful Alaska Fall colors. What can I say? We will miss Eklutna, the people we worked with & so many others that we got to know as Volunteer Campground Hosts; photos may fade, but memories REMAIN!
