    Default Pinks - Allison Point - Valdez

    Hey guys,

    I wanted to paddle a kayak through pinks this July. From the 7th until the 12 I want to spend in Valdez.

    I was wondering if any of you have any ideas about where to camp close to Allison point?
    I called up Capt Jim's campground but got this answering machine. On the message it said they only have 10 spots and they dont take reservations. I dont want to drive 8+ hours to find out they dont have room for me.
    Weird because online it says they have 75 spots.

    Any other suggestions??

    there has only been one or two campers over there. Unless people reserved in advance for pinks, I don't see a problem. The area has been greatly improved upon two years ago. Lots of parking and such. If you have a self-contained camper or such, I have not seen any no-camping signs at all.

    Thanks Dave, I thought you would know.

    I left a message so I hope they call back.

    I know there was a thread about a few places to camp for 'free' around Valdez but I cant find it.

    Smile Camping


    If you could not camp on the point there is a very big camground on the right as you enter town (for some reason I can't think of the name) but it is easy to see and is a short walk from the small boat harbor. It has really nice people and has LOTS of trailer parking and even a tent camping area as well. It also has a walk-in freezer for storing fish for a reasonable fee and it would only be a about a ten minute drive to Allison Point. I think its called Bear Paw RV Park? THe is also the Glacier Campground which is outside of town a little bit but not too far and it might be tent only? Hope this helps a little. I'm sure Dave knows these places better than me so he could probably provide some specifics if you need them. Anyway, I don't think you would be unable to find any place to camp. Have fun with the pinks it is impressive just to see the numbers of them when they are running.
