Camp and Fish at Nash Bayfront Campground in Seward, Alaska located on Nash Road
The property, once home to a sawmill, has been family-owned for generations. We have nearly 6 acres of camping and parking with 360° views of natural beauty that includes mountains, the City of Seward, the boat harbor, and a far reaching view of Resurrection Bay. Adjacent to the campground are wetlands full of wildlife such as swans, ducks, eagles, hawks, river otters, moose, and sometimes brown and black bears.
Overnight camp in your RV, tent, van or camper.
Park for the day and fish with direct bayfront access.
We are located in the City of Seward, which is located approximately two hours south of Anchorage, Alaska. Simply follow the Seward Highway south of Anchorage and you will end your journey in Seward!
Before you first enter the City of Seward, take a left on Nash Road. Drive two miles down Nash Road, and on the right you’ll see a sign that says "Nash Bayfront Campground." To enter the campground, simply take an immediate right, stay on the asphalt and drive between the building and pay station.
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
Our campsites are dry and do not have electricity. We expect to have electricity in spring of 2024 and water and septic to follow. 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.
We charge $15 per vehicle for day parking. We have a fair amount of room to park vehicles, and you’re only a few minute walk away from the beach.
Yes! Reservations can be made via Campspot at https://www.campspot.com/book/nashbayfrontcampground
All during the summer our campground has a longer evening sunset, as we are not vailed by the mountain shadows that downtown campers experience. We have longer days! We have community grills (provide your own propane/charcoal) and picnic tables. We also have campers and a small cabin available for nightly rentals.
Firewood and snagging hooks are also available for sale.
