Description
Donnelly Creek State Recreation Site is located in Alaska on the Delta River. It is known as one of the most scenic campgrounds in Alaska, so it may be crowded during some times of the years with fewer crowds at other times. This site offers sweeping views of the Alaska Range that will take your breath away. It is only made of 12 campgrounds and is never crowded in the conventional sense. It is secluded and by no main roads, so you will have the ultimate peace at Donnelly Creek. 

You will have access to restrooms and water, but that is the extent of the amenities here. It is indeed a bare-bones camping experience. There are firepits you can use as well, with no restrictions. Tons of wildlife is located in this area as well. Moose, caribou, bears, porcupines, beavers, and snowshoe hares frequent the area. 

There are many places to hike, mountain bike, cross-country ski, watch birds, and just enjoy nature and the scenery. There are some tables for eating and trash pickup as well. Your dog is allowed at this location, and there are no restrictions, although the leash requirement is they must be leashed in the campground and may be unleashed in the countryside as long as they are controllable with voice commands. However, we recommend a leash at all times since the abundance of wildlife, such as bears, are in the area. 

You will not find any poop bads provided at this location, so bring poop bags with you to clean up after your dog. Always make sure you give your dog plenty of water while camping. This is made easy with the hand pump water station available at the site. 

Overall, this dog-friendly campground is peaceful, quiet, small, and gets you into nature and the Alaskan countryside without modern distractions. You are your pup are sure to love this quality time together.
