Thread: Tazlina Lake

  1. #1

    Default Tazlina Lake

    My family and I are going camping around Matanuska Glacier next weekend. I have been looking for a lake in the area to set up camp. I found Tazlina Lake on a map, but can't seem to find any campgrounds around the lake on the net. Is there any campgrounds around the lake? If so, do they have outhouses...for the wife and kids? Is it a good/safe lake to canoe around with the family? Dose anybody suggest a better lake that is near Matanuska Glacier?

    Any replies would be greatly appreciated!

    There is a nice public campground with a beautiful view of Matanuska Glacier. Its on the hill above the glacer. Its so nice that its frequently full, and then there can be a lot of noise as its next to the highway and a gravel pit. But I dont know of any lakes in the area with campgrounds. There are a few lakes with fish and you could canoe like long and bonnie lakes but you would have to drive to them. Tazlina lake is a long ways away....

    Tazlina Lake has no road access and it is a reasonably advanced three to four day trip to float the Little Nelchina River to the Nelchina River to Tazlina Lake to Tazlina River, which is how most floaters access Tazlina Lake. There are no campgrounds anywhere on the route. And the water is definitely extremely unsuitable for canoeing with a family. Even with a cataraft, many portions of the trip require skill and concentration.

    Tazlina lake is huge and will get really nasty in short order. I'm thinking is is not a canoe lake.

    Go to Lake Louise, Weiner Lake, or Tangle Lakes.
