This Clam Gulch 7 acre property offers Bluff tent camping in three locations:  Campsite 1 The Meadows, a very large meadow overlooking Cook Inlet, Campsite 2 The Grouse Nest, a secluded private camping spot and Campsite 3 The Sweet Spot, a secluded  meadow with an unbelievable view of Cook Inlet and Mount Redoubt .   Wake up and watch the surf roll in from 200' up.  The only thing you will hear is birds and surf. 

The Site 1 The Meadows, is a very large meadow which is kept mowed.  It is accessed by foot on a loop trail from the parking area (the Moose Trail).  It is close to the outdoor table and gazebo allowed for guest use.

Site 2 The Grouse Nest is a smaller, more private meadow  widely separated from the larger meadow,  on a different  loop trail to the Bluff.  Site 2 can be accessed by one vehicle.  Yes, there have been grouse seen here!

Site 3 The Sweet Spot  is the newest campsite.  It is also on the Moose Trail, and has an unbelievable view of Cook Inlet and Mount Redoubt.  Have coffee and watch the sun rise.

Trails to the meadows are maintained and marked. Campers may  use the gazebo, picnic table, swing, charcoal barbecue, and the granite table located on the Bluff near the Owner's cabin.

Vehicles must park in  designated campsite parking areas, and campers take the short walk to Site 1 Site 2 or Site 3 camping meadows.  

RV campers please reserve Campsite 2, The Grouse Nest, and park in the Campsite 2 Parking Spot.  This is the closest campsite to the very large parking area.

There is a fancy outhouse available for use. We provide  hand sanitizer and toilet paper.  There is also a first aid kit.   Campers please bring your own water.   We recommend 8 gallons for two days.  Closest potable free water for refills is Rocky's in Kasilof.

 Volcano and ocean views to die for!

Dogs are allowed but must be on leash.  Pet waste must be cleaned up immediately.  Campers must pack out their trash.

This is approximately 3.5 hours from Anchorage. Clam Gulch Beach is 4 miles, Deep Creek Beach and Ninilchik Beach is 14 miles.  Anchor Point and Homer are less than an hour's drive.

Serena's campsites had a great view and was a wonderful location for our office retreat! The site was away from the city and right on the bluff. We would recommend this site to anyone!

This is a beautiful place to camp and Serena is a great host. We stayed in site 2. You can park right in front of the site and it has plenty of space and a nice trail to the bluff. The property is great, full of beautiful views of the ocean and volcanos and great art. We would stay here again.

Serena has an incredible spot for sunset views and birding. We saw 2 youth eagles soaring from the lookout spot with mt redoubt in the background. Absolutely stunning! Her dog, Pretzel, is also precious. Highly recommend!

Serena’s space was magical! The sweet spot is truly named that for a reason. We had a lovely stay, met Serena and her pup and enjoyed the magnificent views while cooking dinner over the fire. I will absolutely be coming back!

We loved staying here! The Sweet Spot had amazing views and was a short little hike from the parking spot. We got a little lost when we got there and Anthony took the time to show us around the site.

Incredible host they were friendly and gave great tour of the place when you arrive. Beautiful view whichever spot you choose to camp. Stayed up to watch sunset and wasn’t disappointed. Sleeping felt nice and safe too. Plus the wind picking up hearing the trees was incredible.

Everything about our stay was magical. The only complaint I might attempt to voice would be directed at myself for arriving so late and therefore having less time to spend at this amazing property. However even that would be an insincere, hollow complaint. Things happen for reasons of course!
Arriving in the dark with the girls snoring blissfully unaware in the back seat, necessitated a solo-trek in the near dark in search of The Sweet Spot.
Its hard to explain how a midnight exercise of deliberate tip-toeing through the trees on friendly, unpretentious, trails under the moonlight was so satisfying. How being continuously & hopelessly "lost" when in-between glimpses of hand painted signs that seemed to indicate the way to every camp but mine, didnt frustrate or vex. In fact, the symphony of crashing waves acting as a playful, mocking compass, just happened to be exactly what I needed to get outside of my own head.
Somehow I circled around, couldnt find the way I'd come and then ended up exactly where I was supposed to be. From there a 2nd trail took me straight back to my truck to fetch the girls. How could I have missed it before?
The campsite in the daylight was even more beautiful then I expected. Nothing disappointed and I left feeling more then refreshed.
