We stayed for one night on our trek along Nabesna Road. The campground is fairly new, I believe it was totally redone in 2012, however it appears to have suffered from frost heaves and both the road around the campground and the campsites are very uneven due to the frost heaves. Some of the sites are long and/or spacious and there are picnic tables and fire pits at each site. The pavement on Nabesna Rd ends at mile 15 and it's hard packed gravel the rest of the way to the campground.

Camping here is free. We camped at Kendesnii Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have four wheel drive, take the trip to the end of Nabesna Road. We didn't see much wildlife (one moose), but the scenery is incredible.

This is a free campground, located at mile 28 of Nabesna Road. Stop at the Slana Ranger Station first. Grab a free audio CD that will narrate your drive on Nabesna Road and inquire about free camping opportunities along Nabesna Road (there are quite a few). Kendesnii is the only real campground among those. 10 sites with picnic tables and fire pits and no amenities other than two pit toilets. No water source. But amazingly quiet out here and stunning views of the Wrangell St. Elias Mountains on the way in and from the campground. Sites are level and in the open. A small trail leads to the adjacent lake. Nabesna Road is paved till mile 10 or 12 and the it's gravel. Pretty good road to Kendesnii, rather rough beyond. Our next trip to Alaska will include a few days on Nabesna Road again. We camped at Kendesnii Campground in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Grab a free audio CD at the Slana Ranger Station. Nice narration while you drive on Nabesna Road. Return it on the way out.

Several trailheads to hiking trails of different lengths and difficulty on the way.
