Where Do Hosts Live?

Alaska State Park campgrounds are rustic, but clean and beautiful. Each campsite has a parking pad, a picnic table, and a fire pit. Each campground has water, latrines, and refuse containers. Some host locations have access to telephone and electricity. The campgrounds are near recreation attractions – lakes, streams, mountains, fishing, and wonderful views.
