The title says it all. Literally could spend a month doing so much! There is something here for the entire family. Biking, hiking, camping and four wheeling. Photo ops galore. Bring hand sanitizer and your own toilet paper if you plan to use any of the provided potties! Yikes! Beautiful.

This park is huge and amazing. We did an ATV tour in the rain forest area and it provided us with some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. Saw a waterfall and stream with salmon spawning. Also white water rafted on another section.

While it's not really a secret, most of us who live in Anchorage haven't really seen most of what southcentral has to offer right in our back yard. In the spring, when the warm weather is just starting to melt the snow off of the trails, the Turnagain Arm trail is one of the first to provide good, reasonably dry... More

Just driving down the Seward Highway I believe you drive through this beautiful place. Check out the BORE TIDE. Super cool wave the seems to go through the whole lake and last for about 23 minutes!! It's only about 4 ft. tall but locals gather to see the magic. Happens once a day around 3:00-4:00pm. check times online or at... More

You can camp here, walk the trails, or bike, but be sure to bring your camera along to capture amazing sights. You will see glaciers, waterfalls, gorgeous aqua blue glacial lakes, mountains, and more!

It's more like a highway passing through a large and beautiful wilderness area. Other than foot trails available for hikers, it's really just a scenic drive.

Chugs have is beautiful! You could spend days hiking the many trails that are throughout the park. You can access it via the Seward Highway...there are many scenic turnouts along the water as well. If I had to do our 10-day Alaska trip over, I would spend more time exploring trails here and skipped some other places we visited (Whottier... More
