This is a quiet place, with some sites on the lake and creek. We have twice stayed here and it is a convenient place to stay prior to going to or from Valdez. We camped at Squirrel Creek State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Treed campsite beside pond and creek. Rainbow and grayling fishing in pond. Pond had duck chicks during our stay. River otters also call this pond home. Big rigs can fit into sites. Big rigs should stay on the main road or scout before committing to some of the more narrow roads. Deep pots holes are present; however, they can be navigated if you go slow. Road and sites are gravel / dirt. Some road noise was present but not significant. Bugs were present but not horrible. No facilities; however, there is a full service campground near by that operates the Squirrel Creek Campground. Campground did fill on the weekend (later in the evening). We camped at Squirrel Creek State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This state campground appears to be very neglected. There were no fee envelopes available so it's free. The vault toilets were filthy and garbage was piled next to the overflowing dumpster. We chose Site #23 for our 40' motorhome, pulled in forward, and had a magnificent view of the small lake with a background of mountains. There was only one other traveler here. It was o.k. for a night but definitely not a destination. It is at MM80 of the Richardson Highway near Copper Center toward Valdez. We camped at Squirrel Creek State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
