Ok so we'll presume you know about bears and how to look after yourself in the backcountry. Great area for hiking with clear trails and absolutely breath taking views. However it's all close to civilisation so day trips really work. The Rangers are really helpful. The rock isn't.

I live one block from Chugach State Park in Anchorage, AK and I would have to say the reason we bought our house. Awesome trails that I can walk with my dog, husband, Family and friends. Almost always see wildlife and it is a beautiful park. I would highly recommend to any outdoor enthusiast. Right now my Husband is photographing... More

It was very cool to watch the salmon spawn right below your feet. Such a neat walkway where this could be observed. The Chugach is clean and awesome.

Beautiful drive for a couple of hours before heading to the airport. As with all our Alaska drives the views were amazing. Would like to have been able to see more but alas our time was up.

We were in Alaska a week before sending our son to University of Alaska at Anchorage. So, there was some rush involved in this location (laundry, trips to Walmart for school stuff). We visited lovely Seward and on the way back my darling wanted to go straight back to Anchorage, but mom took a left. Holy cow. We hiked up... More

Hike to Exit glacier - easy hike and fantastic view. Highly recommend if you're in Seward anyway to do a day cruise. Don't need a guide. Stop at the ranger office if you have questions.

This is a gorgeous location, but so is every thing around here. We pulled off the highway at the campground at Eklutna Lake to take a bathroom break and stretch our legs on our way down to Seward from Anchorage. The latrine toilets there are pristine clean and easy to get in and out of on a mobility device. But... More

Our group headed up Bird Ridge for a "3 hour tour." I was sore for three days after this hike to the point but the views were well worth it. We only had some lightweight binoculars but we were able to watch a herd of dall sheep on a nearby mountain. Next time I'd take a scope with more range... More

We camped here a couple of nights. Like all of the state parks in Alaska the place is pristine and beautiful. There are latrines, fire pits and well marked camping sites. Very affordable.

Chugach state park has a lot to offer from hiking trails to campgrounds, glaciers and just a nice drive through the park. Really nice road.
