Grizzly Lake RV, Slana, Alaska

If you're too busy looking at the scenery, you might drive right past this place in remote Slana along the Glenn Highway south of Tok. The campground is simple, offering a few cabins and ten to fifteen sites, five of which have a 20 amp electric hookup. Located right off the highway down a somewhat steep driveway, this place is quiet and peaceful. The owners are local folks that will help you with whatever you need. Time seems to stop here and even though you may have an electrical hookup, you realize when staying here that you are in the wilderness. This park is set along the shore of a small lake, Grizzly Lake. The lake is stunning with the backdrop of the Wrangell St. Elias National Park mountain range as its backdrop. Sunrises and sunsets here are awesome. We were one of three campers here during our summer stay. There was definitely a sense of camaraderie and we enjoyed visiting with our neighbors about their experiences as Alaskan natives. The campground has bumpy, potholed dirt roads and gravel/dirt sites. Hookups sites have fire
pits and are not situated along the lake. We opted for a non-hookup site so that we could enjoy the lakeside view. These lakefront sites are narrow and, with slides, could be tricky to maneuver in and out of when the campground is full. There are paddle boat and boat rentals for a small fee. We loved that the one fee included both types so that we could enjoy both. I especially loved my private rowing service provided by my younger son! Restrooms, dump and water fill are all available here along with a friendly, helpful staff. There is no laundry and no reservations. All sites are first come, first served.
