There are so many campgrounds to choose from within the Chugach National Forest and you can't go wrong with any of them! They are nice and private, friendly hosts, beautiful HUGE trees!

We thought Denali was big, but the Chugach National Forest consists of around 6 million acres of land. It surrounds Prince William Sound and spills over on to the Kenai Peninsula which is where we passed through it. It is the 2nd largest National Park in the United States and has everything a nature lover would want to see: forests of sitka spruce and hemlock, snow capped mountains, glaciers, rivers and shoreline areas. It is a sub polar temperate rain forest but the day we went through the sky were cloudless and brilliant blue. Just a wonderful place for hiking, fishing and observing wildlife. Spectacular scenery.

Enjoyed a visit to this National Forest. Didn’t have the opportunity to hike but enjoyed the top notch visitor’s center (and NP passport stamp!) and boat ride on Portage Lake to view Portage Glacier up close. Highly recommend!

We made a first stop in Chugach National Forest near Girdwood and two hours later we were still in it as we arrived Seward. Fishing season was just about to begin, and the first fishers were starting to arrive. RV rental people were starting to be seen on the roads and in the forest areas. Hikers and bikers were still in winter gear, but enjoying themselves. The area is prime for outdoor adventure. Depending on the area you are in fishing, hiking, or sight seeing may be the dominant activity. We did find that along the Seward highway there were many miles of paved trails running next to the highway with safe transition areas as they passed through turnouts and parking areas.
