“Good hiking”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We took a hike around Byers Lake. It was a good trail in beautiful country. I gave 4 stars because it was quite rainy and there were several mud puddles we had to negotiate around. The rain isn't the fault of the lake, but it was part of the experience.

“Campground”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

It was quiet very nicely kept the area was a nice touch to the end of our motorhome adventure. The trail behind the campground to waterfall was tempting but we were not prepared for a bear visitor at the early evening timeframe. The lake was gorgeous but the mosquitoes were in full force nothing bug spray did not control.

“Flat water and blue skies”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Great place for lunch, a paddle and views of Denali. Highway cutoff sign missing so watch the mile markers. Well worth the time.

“Great campground!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Nice campground. Big Mosquitos! Nice kayaking. Very peaceful and serene. Good hikes closely too, although we never went on any (heavy rains). Stop at the veterans memorial up the road for free coffee, hot chocolate, and friendly volunteers!

Took a 2 hour hike around part of Byers Lake. Guide shared lots of information about the plants and things that we were seeing on our way. An easy hike on gentle terrain. Delightful guide.
