    Default Camping/Fishing North of Palmer

    I posted another thread about this in the fresh water fishing forums, but I thought I'd check here too with my questions more specific to camping.

    The wife and I planned to go to Tangle Lakes the weekend of May 21. We're looking for more places to camp north of Palmer that have things to do. I liked the idea of Tangle Lakes because of the ability to fish with out having a boat. But then reality hit and now I realize that the area will probably still be frozen.

    That is when I found myself with the following questiosn: Were can I camp north of Palmer where there are actually things to do if I don't have ATV's or a Boat? I have searched campgrounds but was hoping I could get a little insight from the experts about any places I may not have read about where there are kid friendly activies such as hiking, biking, and hopefully some streams and lakes that I can fish without a boat?

    The main place we seem to camp is King Mountain camp ground because that is where my wife grew up camping, but to me it is boring, I don't know what to do around there other than throw rocks in the water, and there is more highway noise than in my front yard! Maybe I am missing out on something that you know of that might be worth checking out? I don't mind driving up to 5-6 hours one way from Palmer.

    I know there is alot of info out there but any info that you would personally suggest will be gladly accepted. Thank you.

Also the other pictures posted are either from the road driving in or a hike of the skookum volcano trail. If you want a camping and hiking adventure with some fishing this is a place like no other. Just check out the site for all other information. A true back country experience. Any questions just ask.
