Williwaw campground is one of our favourites in Alaska. The signage to find the trail is absolutely terrible. This is also in the wrong section of Tripadvisor and should be moved to Portage or the Girdwood area. The trail is wonderful with a large amount...More

We stayed in the Williwaw Campground and hiked around the trails. Very nice. There is lots to do. Make sure you check out the nature trail when the Salmon are coming upstream! I believe this is part of the USFS Chugach NF.

Decent beginners trail, other than the occasional bear sighting this trail is great for families, friends who don't get out much or sweethearts. It is a National Park Service trail and well kept.

We loved this beautiful, amazingly well organized campground. While you are here make sure to eat at Whittier Alaska Swiftwater Seafood Cafe. Great food and an amazing view!
