Description
Looking for something a little off the beaten path? Want to explore the rugged terrain of Alaska with the guarantee of a safe, comfortable place to rest your head (and your doggo's head, too)? The Buskin River State Recreation Area might be the perfect spot for you! This recreation area, located right on the Buskin River, offers you and your doggo the chance to camp (whether it's in a modest tent or a giant RV) for an affordable rate (ranging from $10-$28 per night) and a few creature comforts.

With this campground, you can expect a spot that's a touch off the grid (no wifi access or cell coverage) but still offers you some of the amenities you'll need. There are vault toilets, picnic areas, picnic shelters, food storage lockers, fishing docks, campfire rings, drinking water available, firewood, water access, and tent and RV sites that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

You'll be able to fish, hike, hunt, berry pick, beach-comb, and explore all the nature and wildlife that Alaska has to offer, all from your campground! There are even old military roads that connect WWII structures that are all hidden in the thick, spruce forest on the north side of the park. 

While there are no explicit dog rules listed on any of their sites, you and your pup should be careful to abide by several safety precautions. If your dog is not 100 percent reliable just with voice command, we suggest you keep your dog on a leash at all times. The reason being, you're in the middle of bear country, and if your dog won't listen to your commands, they're at a serious risk of getting hurt or killed, and putting you in danger, too. We recommend you always clean up after your dog, keep their leash to a maximum of 6 feet, and keep them on their best behavior.
