If you are planning to stay in Anchorage,
RVs to park overnight in their parking lots.
But if you are looking for something that more resembles the camping
experience (or if you have a tent and need a place to pitch it) then this
campground would be the best place within the city of Anchorage.
Head north on the Glenn Highway and take the Muldoon exit
headed south. There will be blue
camper signs along the route. Turn
left on Boundary Avenue. Take
another immediate left into Centennial Park.
Follow the road around as it becomes a frontage road for the Glenn
Highway. The entrance to the park
will be on the right side of the road.
There are 88 camp sites.
As is typical with city campsites, each site is side by side so this is a
combat camping situation. The cost
per site is $13.00 for out of state guests and $11.00 for Alaska residents.
The sites accommodate either tenters or RVs, but there are no hookups.
The restrooms in the campground have running water toilets and showers
that campers can use for free. Most
of the campsites have a picnic table and a fire ring. There is also a children’s playground.
