    This is a horror of a campground. Let's start with the tubing. There is no fishing were there is tubing, so much for Alaska wilderness. Parents do you know where your kids are? People do you know where your dog is? Toilet paper in woods, understandable, bathhouse is a disgrace, ever hear of cleaning it? Birds got into the trash, don'...moreThis is a horror of a campground. Let's start with the tubing. There is no fishing were there is tubing, so much for Alaska wilderness. Parents do you know where your kids are? People do you know where your dog is? Toilet paper in woods, understandable, bathhouse is a disgrace, ever hear of cleaning it? Birds got into the trash, don't clean it up, it's no worse than the stink from the dump station. Maybe have it pumped? Loud, dirty, sad really.

    This is how I grew up camping. Sites are spread out and have trees and bushes, unlike many Alaskan campgrounds. This one has a stream or small river that meanders through and almost every site is right on the water. When I visited, the water was flowing pretty quickly, which could be a deterrent to those with small children or animals....moreThis is how I grew up camping. Sites are spread out and have trees and bushes, unlike many Alaskan campgrounds. This one has a stream or small river that meanders through and almost every site is right on the water. When I visited, the water was flowing pretty quickly, which could be a deterrent to those with small children or animals. I had read that visitors can tube the river from entrance to exit, then repeat. Many campgrounds in Alaska are either like a parking lot with marked spaces and hookups, or are wooded with no conveniences. This one has both. Dump site on premises. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. About 3/4 mile off AK 1. $39 for 30 Amp, $49 for 50 Amp. Helpful friendly staff. GS discount.

    We stayed here in 2007, and decided to revisit our old "most favorite campsite in Alaska". Tolsana Wilderness did not disappoint. It's a beautiful campground, every site is on the river, and well spaced from other sites. It's beautiful, quiet, and "our kind of camping" because you're in nature, not a parking lot.

It's a beautiful campground, every site is on the river, and well spaced from other sites. It's beautiful, quiet, and "our kind of camping" because you're in nature, not a parking lot. It's well worth the $33 a night, and the 3/4 mile gravel road drive in. Tolsana Wilderness is still our favorite privately owned campground in Alaska...12 years running.

    Really lovely wooded camping with a young family running it. Every campsite is on the Tolsona River. Your choice of electric and water or not. All the amenities plus wifi depending which site. We would definitely stay here again.
