At 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/

Super Spot in Seward
I reserved sites 3 and 4 on 8/6 for myself, my girlfriend, our two dogs and my brother who was visiting from Oklahoma to celebrate my birthday. The campground was awesome! Charlottes was a very gracious host. She even delivered firewood at a most reasonable rate! I’m looking forward to another stay soon!!!

Charlotte was very responsive and helped out when we needed it. The camps are remote and you get to experience the wilderness first hand. The lake is beautiful. She has set up tarps for protection over the tables.

Best private family friendly camp!
Best camping location, atmosphere and our host Charlotte was amazing!
If you’re interested in a small intimate style on a lake surrounded by nature type of tent camping trip; I highly recommend this location as your choice.
Fishing directly from your campsite with kids was a huge highlight as a parent including the secluded family style camp sites.
