Camping in the forest has never been so easy.
My wife and I arrived to a completely empty campground! We chose campsite #17
because it was slightly more private with plenty of surrounding trees. We stayed for only one night.
We disconnected the trailer and spent the day restocking on food, fuel, and firewood in Delta Junction. The firewood bundles at Buffalo Center Service gas station are the largest firewood bundles we’ve ever seen - so make sure to stop here.
The campground is next to a small airfield with small planes and a few helicopters. There was hardly any noise, so don’t let this airfield dissuade you.
The mosquitoes aren’t bad, but you’ll still want candles and spray. Some squirrels and birds, but no view of mountains.
The weather was mostly sunny with passing rain showers. I suggest wearing rain gear as it rained on me without warning often.
I didn’t see any online reservations for this campground, so its first come first serve. You can reserve a public use cabin, maximum 4 people, that is near the entrance. A picnic shelter is also available for reservation. You’ll also find plenty of parking, picnic tables, and BBQ pits for day use. There are two restrooms and a few water spigots throughout the campground.
