On our way to 'North America's most westerly highway point' we discovered this great spot. Drive all the way to the end of Anchor River Road. There you'll find a small parking lot (near the boat launch) and you have easy access to the beach....More

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.
