HEADS UP: THE SEWARD HIGHWAY FROM MILE 8 TO MILE 0 IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION! TANKER TRUCKS WILL BE PUMPING WATER FROM GROUSE LAKE AT NIGHT DURING THE REST OF THE SUMMER: SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHTS. IT'S VERY LOUD! ALL NIGHT! FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHTS ARE OPEN. THEY WILL NOT BE PUMPING ON FRIDAY NIGHTS AND SATURDAY NIGHTS. I blocked out the days that they will be pumping, and left open the days that they will not be pumping. 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/ OPEN DATES: May 31st to Sept 14th, 2023. NO PARTIES OR EVENTS. TENT CAMPING ONLY. 15136 GROUSE CREEK RD, SEWARD, AK 99664

Serene and magical!
Beautiful, serene, and magical place to camp! Really nice touches by the host, including sheltered areas, large cleared spaces for tents and waterfront views, as well as fire pits and seating areas. The host checked in upon arrival and was accessible and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Absolutely Worth It
Charlotte’s campground was right on the water and very clean and well maintained! There’s plenty of wildlife and the host was great about monitoring the area for a nuisance bear. Very great camping spot!!

Campsite #5
My husband and I had the great experience. It was not expensive and it’s not too far away from town. The campsites, for a really roomy and not far of a walk from the parking lot to your campsite. We had the greatest experience with the owner. She is so nice and helpful. I do have to warn you that it does get cold at night, so bring warm, soft and warm blankets. me and my husband will go here again so recommend.

Relatively quiet, nice spot by the lake. There are definitely fish in there, & we saw some beavers swimming in the morning. Bring bug spray!
