Sitting at Girdwood gas station looking for a camp sit
Since you posted in the middle of the night, I assume you found somewhere to sleep?
For future reference, the closest would be Crow Creek Mine. The nicest one would be a short drive to Williwaw CG (a few miles along the cut-off to Whittier) and also along that road is Portage RV. More info: www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/alaska/girdwood
Well ... if you ever make it back to Girdwood ... drive up Crow Creek road to the first bridge and turn left on a single lane dirt road. The road goes up about a quarter mile. There is a walking trail through tall spruce that goes to a small creek with plenty of places to pitch a tent. Back in the mid 70's there was a group of us (mostly Veterans) that spent an entire summer in there. Nobody bothered us and we had very few visitors. Girdwood was always camper friendly back then and I am assuming the small community has the same attitude.
I've spent many nights sleeping in my van at a pullover...seen lots of northern lights over the years at them too! ;)
