Johnson Lake Campground
One of our favorite campgrounds in our early years in Alaska was Johnson Lake in Kasilof. It is relatively close to Homer--only a bit over an hour away--and has a beautiful lake, nice big campsites and some years, berries to pick. We'd given up fall camping for 8 years while the kids were in middle school and high school cross-country running, and have rediscovered the joy of fall camping once again with our empty nest. We didn't even have a full day, leaving Sat. evening after the Homer High football game and coming back early Sunday afternoon, but it was a delightful break nonetheless, even with rain nearly the whole time. The campground was pretty full but peaceful, with little traffic. I managed to find a few lowbush cranberries in the process, which will be wonderful come Thanksgiving!
