Are you searching for natural wilderness largely untouched by human hands? Located in Southcentral Alaska, the Chugach National Forest forms a great arc around Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska. It stretches more than 200 miles from the Kenai Peninsula to the remote and wild Copper River Delta. More than half of Alaska's population lives within a short drive to the Kenai Peninsula, making it the most accessible area of the Chugach National Forest.
The area hosts residents and visitors for fishing on the Russian River and Kenai River, camping in the expansive spruce and Hemlock forests as well as hiking and biking on an extensive trail system. Prince William Sound, the heart of the forest, envelops deep fjords and great walls of glacial ice.
The great outdoors are waiting. Ready to book your stay? Call 907-288-3178 today for cabin rentals and camping information at one of our 13 separate campgrounds.
