Welcome to our Alaskan getaway! Come pitch a tent and enjoy the midnight sunsets and sunrises with a beautiful backdrop of the Alaskan sky. Our ideal location by the lake allows for swimming among other water activities. We have seasonal gardens that you can pick fresh produce from - check with the host for seasonal vegetation. Feed the birds, get dirt under your fingernails, sleep in a tent, drive to the mountains (about an hour away!) or take a hike. You might even get the host to take you rock climbing. Enjoy Alaska, that's what this getaway is all about - we look forward to your stay! You cannot drive to the tent sites it’s park and walk but they aren’t far 500ft at most. There’s no water on site but we can grab you a few gallons if you need. You will need to have contact with the host before coming as the neighborhood is gated!

We would ABSOLUTELY recommend going to this site. Amelia and her husband were so very helpful and nice, they helped us with moving all of our items to the campsite and pointed out all the edible berries and gave us a complete walkthrough of the area, and made us feel very welcomed and safe. The land is beautiful and peaceful and was so quiet and nice. The area for burning wood was perfect and we were able to cook our hotdogs with no issue. The bathroom they provide was also very clean and sanitary and they provided clean drinking water. The lake is amazing and they also provided life jackets and kayaks for us to use which were great. The only downside to the whole experience was that our son got ill and we had to leave early. We wanted to stay a few more days but because our 14-month-old son had gotten ill we had to leave which made us very sad because we didn't want to leave this beautiful place. Amelia and her husband were wonderful people and made us feel so very welcomed and we appreciated that so very much. Even when we left early we were totally fine with paying the full fee and we had no intentions of asking for reimbursement but Amelia did do so. Even though we didn't stay the entire time we totally would have been ok with her keeping the fee because it was very much worth it even for the time we were there. We definitely plan on going back and we for sure recommend anybody wanting to camp in a beautiful, rustic, peaceful, and quiet area to go to this spot!

Beautifully positioned homestead in the making - was truly wonderful to get a peak into the lives of those devoted to natural living. The lake is quiet and perfect for a swim, kayaking or fishing.

The campsite was perfect, easy to pitch a tent and start a fire. Plenty of space for my hammock. Amelia and family were great - I greatly enjoyed my several conversations. They were kind and friendly, but gave space to chill.

Hope to come back next year and check in on the progress!

We camped with Amelia and her family on our way to Fairbanks. It was superb. Their hospitality was genuine. They have really created an awesome space in the wilderness. Do yourself a favor and book a stay!
