The Dutch Hideaway

1 site · RV1 acre · Wasilla, AK
We moved to Alaska in 2020 and fell in love with the Palmer area. As a family, we felt that being in the countryside was the best place to raise our children, which is why we chose this property. After a friend of ours parked her camper here for a few weeks, we decided to try renting out the spot to others visiting Alaska. 2022 is our first year hosting this site. We are a young family always looking for ways to earn some extra income. We are a family-friendly property. Our property's location is between Palmer and Wasilla Alaska. We are in a quiet neighborhood within a mile of four separate lakes.  Finger Lake State Park is close by and is the starting point for the 7-mile canoe trail that takes you through a number of lakes and streams in the area. We are 20 miles from the top of Hatchers Pass/ Independence Mine State recreation area where you can pan for gold and go on many different hikes. This property has the best of being close to the city but is still far enough away to feel like you are deeper in the woods than you are.
