Kink River Public Use Area

This land is managed by the Department of Natural Resources.  We stayed on the river bed right off the Old Glenn Highway.  We were on the North side of the bridge and to the left side.  Very spacious place and easy accessible for cars or RV’s of any size.  

We camped on the other side of the bridge.  We are just out of the frame and would be sitting just to top and left of the picture.

There are tons of spots with already made rock fire pits or just set yourself up next to water, just be sure your back far enough that when the tide comes in you don’t get a flooded campsite.  nGreat 4G internet and for the most part quiet.  There was the occasional 4-wheeler or truck that sped by .  Now we did only stay from Monday night until Thursday afternoon.  Fact is that this place gets crazy on the weekends.  Its the cool place for everyone to go party and people tend to get unruly.  We didn’t want to have that much fun:)

Our view was of Pioneer Peak
Mountain and the beautiful sandy Knik River.  By staying here we were very close to Anchorage, Wasilla and Palmer. h We stocked up food, water gas and ran errands too.  We were actually in Butte, Alaska that has a small gas station with minimal snacks.  Right around the corner is a pick yourself farm, Pharahs Pioneer Peak Farm that is always a fun trip.  The Bodenburg Butte Knol hike thats rather easy but gives you a nice view about the valley.  There is also the Reindeer Farm and a Musk-Ox Farm in Palmer.
