The best camping near Fielding Lake State Recreation Area guide



Tucked away in the Alaska Range, you’ll find the quiet Fielding Lake State Recreation Area, sitting pretty at 2,973 feet above sea level. Out here above the treeline, ice can linger on the lake until July, but that’s hardly a hindrance. The boat launch will get you in and out of the water with ease, and the fishing is absolutely fantastic. You can cast your line for Arctic Grayling, lake trout, and burbot, just read up on state fishing regulations before heading out. The campground is rustic, with 17 campsites, and even toilets. If that sounds a bit too primitive for your tastes, there’s a public use cabin that can be reserved.

When to go

The best time to visit Fielding Lake State Recreation Area is during the summer months, from June to August, when the weather is mild and the days are long. Winter visits offer a starkly beautiful landscape, but be prepared for cold temperatures and limited access.

Know before you go

  • Check weather conditions before your trip, as Alaska's weather can be unpredictable.
  • Be aware of wildlife in the area; carry bear spray and know how to use it.
  • Prepare for limited cell service; plan your route and communicate your plans beforehand.
  • Respect the natural environment; practice Leave No Trace principles.
  • Accessibility may vary; contact the park office for the latest information on trail and facility access.
