Situated along the Salcha River in interior Alaska, and easily accessible from the Richardson Highway, the camp area is perfect for those experiencing Alaska by bike, motorcycle, on foot, or by travel van.  There is ample space for pitching your tent or hanging your hammock in this peaceful setting, and a large fire pit is available for your enjoyment.  Camper Vans are also welcome, or any other smaller camping vehicle.  *Currently, the camping area is primitive, but plans are in place for building tent platforms and covers, adding picnic tables, and other features in the near future.  These will most likely be available late this summer (2018) or in the spring of 2019.
