This is a beautiful campground on a large lake. The fishing for grayling and rainbows is good, there is a gorgeous view of Mt. McKinley from the entrance to the campground, before you descend to the lake. This is remote, but on the main highway.

Beautiful lake. We did the whole loop, and while it’s very scenic, I wouldn’t recommend this hike, as the trail is very overgrown. I’d say for more that half of the 5 miles, the trail itself is difficult to see and footing is precarious. Also some erosion on the side of the path, making it easier to slip downhill. We saw loons and the swans and lots of wildflowers. Maybe would suggest seeing the lake by canoe . . .

This is a most beautiful lake accessible from the Park highway with rather easy walking around the lake. Bird watchers would love it especially if the Trumpter Swans we saw are present.

We walked part of the trail around Lake Byers with a very knowledgeable guide called Bernard who knew all about the flora -what was edible, what was poisonous, what the animals ate etc. We also saw several birds and ducks on the lake including loons and swans. He explained the history of the area and showed us an abandoned house where its original family hunted and raised children off the grid. It was the best experience of my travels to have this experience combining my love of nature, walking and flowers.

My friend and I took a nature walk here as an excursion with Princess. Our guide, Mo, was so knowledgeable and friendly. This area is already gorgeous, but she made the experience all the more enjoyable. It was so interesting to learn about the plants and wildlife in the area. She even pointed out which berries we could taste, and the watermelon berries were really good!
