We made a first stop in Chugach National Forest near Girdwood and two hours later we were still in it as we arrived Seward. Fishing season was just about to begin, and the first fishers were starting to arrive. RV rental people were starting to...More

I have to tell people that this is a true rain forest, so be prepared for the wet weather. It is likely to rain or snow there just about every day depending on the location. In the spring and summer, this forest is very lush...More

Spectacular scenery. It's actually impossible to miss if you're in Seward, since the forest literally surrounds the town! Really friendly and helpful forest rangers too!

We drove the Chugach National Forest en route from Seward to Anchorage. For about 40 miles, the Turnagain Arm was on the left side of the highway, and the Chugach National Forest was on the right side. It covers most of the eastern part of...More

This is a great National Forest with lots to offer (and lots of mosquitoes too!). Camp, hike, fish, ATV, endless opportunities. The part of the forest outside of Cordova, Alaska is very accessible from the Copper River Highway.

The most beautiful lake that we visited on our trip. We stopped here for lunch and were very surprised to find the place almost deserted. If we come back we would definitely stay at this campground. It is unbelievably picturesque.

We hiked the Haystack trail.. very well maintained and a great hike with awesome views. The gravel road gets more and more rutted the further you go.. so you have to go slow but it was fine.

We headed toward Girdwood which you drive along the coastline through the Chugach National Forest. Simply beautiful scenery very camera friendly. Spring thaw was going on so many waterfalls off the rock formations. Plenty of hiking trails - very lovely!

Cordova is an amazing little town, with great people and beautiful scenery. It does rain a lot and the weather can be very unpredictable so be prepared for anything.
