Upper looop at Swiftwater Campground in Soldotna, Alaska.

The upper loop at Swiftwater Campground is better suited for trailers and longer RV's but only a couple sites can handle the full size Class A motor homes. Be sure that there is a site that is long enough and level enough before filling in and paying the camping fees. Campsites are rough and very uneven.

Note: Swiftwater Campground is for the most part a tent or small RV campground that is less than adequate for full size RV's. The better option for big rigs is found in Centennial Park Campground on the other side of town or at King Salmon Campground just a couple miles away on te Kenai Spur Highway.
