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 unbelieveable 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.

Magical land rejuvenates soul
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.
Such a lovely place! I loved everything about it. Unfortunately we arrived late, had to head out pretty early and it rained but it’s a beautiful beautiful place. Definitely want to come back some other time. Loved all the cute little affirmations around the campsites. Lovely place.
Peaceful and restorative!
Serena’s space is absolutely gorgeous. We stayed in site 3 - overlooking the volcano and the bay. We stayed up until the summer sun set in front of the fire pit with the occasional eagle flying overhead. It was very peaceful! Serena was incredibly helpful and responds quickly to messages. The outhouse was super clean and well-kept/stocked. We would absolutely recommend this as a peaceful stopover between busier towns on the peninsula (it’s also only 40 mins from Homer!) Try the Thai restrictions in town!
We stayed at site 3. Beautiful view of the mountains across the water, soft ground, a nice bench and table provided by the host! We loved our stay and would definitely stay again!
Heaven on earth
We absolutely loved this campsite. There were lots of nice touches and hands down the cleanest outhouse I’ve ever been in. The view was incredible & if you’re lucky enough for the clouds to clear and you can see the volcano, you’ll be blown away. The gazebo, seating and tables were really helpful when cooking and just staying out of the rain. Serena made a recommendation for our family to Kayak and that was the highlight of our entire week long trip in Alaska. I can’t say enough good things about our experience.
This is a BEAUTIFUL place to camp. It is obvious how much the host cares about her guests and loves this property.
Truly a place to get away from it all and get back to nature. Both my 6 year old and I were amazed at the views.
A great place for a beautiful get away and for those who travel lightly.
