Grouse Lake Campground
5 units · Tents2 acres · AlaskaAt the end of Grouse Creek Rd, Grouse Lake Campground, which is a Walk in-Tent Only campground, borders Grouse Lake, and is approximately 7 1/2 miles north of Seward. The campground now sits where once the Seward highway ran prior to the highway being rerouted on the other side of the property along the AK railroad. The backside of each campsite butts up against a mossy rock wall where the road was once carved out of the mountainous environment. The front-side of each campsite has a beautiful view of the lake. Besides being a beautiful relaxing area to kick back and enjoy the summer, there are fish in the lake. According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, "during the open water season the best fishing is when Dolly Varden enter (August-September) and exit (mid-May through early June) the lake. As these fish migrate in large schools, be careful not to snag or foul hook the fish. Best ice fishing at Grouse Lake is from December through early April. Try single salmon eggs or small lures. 'Resurrection Bay Fresh Water' regulations," (Fishing in the Seward Area, http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/static-sf/region2/pdfpubs/seward.pdf 2016). And, since Grouse Lake, and Grouse Lake Campground border the Chugach National Forest, it is wise to remember, there will be wildlife. Besides seagulls escaping stormy Pacific ocean weather, there are owls, and eagles, and occasional ravens, humming birds and other small birds, land otters, beavers, moose, and the occasional bear. Chugach National Forest is abundant with wildlife, both small critters, and large critters. Keeping this in mind, and following the safety guides that can be found on https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=educators.wildlifesafety will ensure an Alaskan adventure to enjoy, journal, and remember. As the second largest forest in the National Forest System, Chugach National Forest is also in the northern most range of the Pacific temperate rainforest region. Therefore, rain-gear is essential for a more comfortable camping experience. For more info visit https://www.fs.usda.gov/chugach/ NO PARTIES OR EVENTS.

All camping options

There's only one place in the United States where you can see glaciers, rainforests, and the Northern lights, all in one trip. The magic is in the numbers: Alaska has more than 33,000 miles of shoreline, and 60% of the state is public land. For campers, that means that there are great campsites and killer adventures around every bend.

The best part? You don’t need to go far to get into the wild. An easy drive from Anchorage takes you into Denali National Park. The park has 6 million acres of wildland—and just one road!

Alaskan camping options are just as varied as the landscape. Try paddle camping in the soaring Kenai Fjords, or hike to remote backcountry tent sites in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. If glamping is more your thing, enjoy the ocean view from your luxury yurt in Kachemak Bay State Park.

In Alaska, you'll find an experience for everyone. In the southeast, watch bears roam along Glacier Bay and humpback whales surface above the waves. Near Fairbanks, you can soak in natural hot springs under the aurora borealis.

Summer brings warm, sunny days that are ideal for hiking; in the fall, the tundra near Denali blazes with color. If you're the hardy sort, winter camping brings unparalleled cross-country skiing and snowmobiling across the state.

Camping in Alaska doesn't have to be about pitching a tent in the backcountry or road-tripping along the Glacier Highway in an RV. Yurt rentals around near Juneau, Fairbanks, or Anchorage combine the back-to-nature experience of camping in the land of the Midnight Sun with enough home comforts to keep you cozy whatever the season. Check into a fully furnished yurt on the edge of Denali National Park & Preserve, snag one of the rustic yurts at Kachemak Bay State Park, or book a family-sized yurt with an on-site sauna at the heart of the Chugach National Forest. Yurt camping makes it easy to get outdoors year-round, so choose an oceanfront yurt on Orca Island in the summer months and enjoy fishing and paddling around Resurrection Bay or rent a heated yurt near the Chena Hot Springs in winter, where you can try dog sledding and spot the Northern Lights.
