Matanuska Glacier State Recreation Site
Mile 102.2 Glenn H
Alaska 99674


Unusual because of its blue color (created by ice density and summer light), this park is also home to the state's largest active glacier that is reachable by foot. They are open from May to the end of September, weather permitting. The campground is located at mile 101 and there are 12 sites, water, toilets, picnic tables, and fire pits; there is also a large paved rest area for RVs that has a dumpster, interpretive shelter, and a great scenic picnic area. Glacier viewing platforms are accessible on the Edge Nature Trail leading from the campground. This campground is closed during the off-season. There are no electric or water hookups at the campgrounds.
