FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

WHERE IS NASH BAYFRONT CAMPGROUND?

We are located near the City of Seward, which is approximately a two hour drive south of Anchorage, Alaska. Simply follow the Seward Highway South of Anchorage and follow the signs to Seward.

Before entering the City of Seward, take a left on Nash Road. Drive two miles, turn right on Riptide Lane, after passing sign that says "Nash Bayfront Campground" on back of antique truck. To enter the campground, simply take an immediate right (marked with another sign), and drive between the building and pay station.

HOW CLOSE IS THE BEACH?

Campground property is adjacent to the river that is a three minute walk to the ocean. We have a well traveled trail on the near side of the river that leads directly to the beach where everyone catches salmon. We also have our own trail that crosses the river and gets you on the far side of the river which is advantageous for all the tiny veins of water that run up into the shore during high tide.

Early in the summer, around the middle of May through July, you can expect to catch Sockeye/Red Salmon from the beach. Later in the summer, from late July until September, Coho/Silver Salmon can be caught from the beach. Please note that each person fishing is responsible for acquiring appropriate licensing by state law.

WHAT FACILITIES ARE AVAILABLE?

Our campsites are dry and do not have electricity. We do have outhouses available to those who need one. The City of Seward offers an RV dump site and potable water located near the Waterfront Campground on Ballaine Boulevard.  Drinking water is available at main house at campground entrance.  We also have Ice/Water Vending Machine, and Pepsi Vending Machines on side of main house.

HOW DOES PARKING WORK?

We charge $15 per vehicle for day parking. We have a fair amount of room to park vehicles, and it's only a few minutes walk away from the beach. 

DO YOU TAKE RESERVATIONS?

Reservations can be made via Campspot at https://www.campspot.com/book/nashbayfrontcampground

WHAT ELSE DOES THE CAMPGROUND OFFER?

Our campground has a longer evening sunset during the summer, as we are not veiled by the mountain shadows that downtown campers experience. We have longer days! Free Community Grill area (propane provided) and picnic tables. We also have a luxury camper and a  small cabin available for nightly rentals.

Firewood and snagging hooks are also available for sale.
