Located at the most westerly highway point in North America, this campground is popular with tourists, locals, and out of town Alaskans alike. Lots of room, a clear water river, clean, and close to the beach.

Beautiful spot for a sunset. Spectacular view. Quiet & secluded. Camped within walking distance at Kyllonen's RV Park. Abundant wildlife.

I always go to Anchor River State Rec Area. What a great place to watch boats being launched by a TRACTOR into the water. Eagles and shorebirds abide, long walks on the beach...Just be aware, it can get windy down here. Dress in layers.
