Camp right on the banks of the Matanuska river while staring at the magnificent King Mountain, Pinnacle mountain, and Craig Mountain! Over 10 acres with only 5 camp sites! Close to Kings river and some of the best ATV trails in the State! The Matanuska river offers some of the best rock hounding in the area and when the river is low, kids love playing in the shallow river streams and sandbars!

Fantastic stay
We booked Wolverine 1 and even though the host was at our site so we had to use another, it was a great stay. We were in a campervan and it was very easy to find and easy to get to. I recommend turning around right at the pull off so you can get down the trail going forward. We were the only people there and it was fantastic!

Not Private but Great Views
Overall, great experience and beautiful location. Site 2 lacked a fire ring (we built one) and there were no toilets as listed on the listing. I recommend spot #1 because it is right next to the river, compared to #2, which is not directly on the river but you have access to it.

Quiet and huge campsites! Great spot to book if you are looking to get away from crowded state parks. Loved being able to hear the river all night!

Site 3
This site was easy to pull in and out of (23LDE Grand Design). If coming from Palmer, there is a pull off just past the entrance that I would recommend turning around at. That made getting in and out pretty simple. We loved the area - lots of river bank to walk and some areas that were safe enough to cross. There was some road noise - but nothing that some music couldn’t drown out. Overall, recommend - will be booking again!

Unsafe Private Property Campground
HipCamp Confirmation Number: 1879893 1) The entrance to this Private Property and Unofficial Campground; North 40 - River's Edge, had no signage on either side of the road, a busy single-lane highway and very difficult to find. 2) The angle of the narrow driveway down to the property was very steep. It is in no way accessible for an RV of any length. 3) Major concern; It was raining heavily. I was afraid I would be unable to evacuate in a safe manner due to property conditions being muddy, and my vehicle would get stuck. I did not feel safe at this property. 4) Due to the remoteness of property, there is no cell service. Nowhere on the HipCamp website, app or owner's information is it listed as a "Boondocking" campground. 5) The drop-off at the edge of my assigned space number 1 and the Matanuska River is roughly two feet and is quite dangerous. 6) I tried several times to call or otherwise contact the "Owner/Operator"; an Esther Sanderlin, by cell, text and messaging via HipCamp, to no avail. My personal experience was negative. I am requesting a full refund for both of the nights I purchased to camp at North 40 - River's Edge Campground. I do not recommend this private property as a campground.
