All groups and individuals must obtain a permit to camp or use the Rapids Camping area. Specifically, this is the area with a food storage locker, picnic table, latrine and metal fire ring. Increased vandalism and destruction of forest resources has prompted us to monitor the area regularly and to work toward restoring damaged sections.
Permit fee: $2 per person with a maximum of 24 persons and (6) 4-person tents at this site.
Check-in time: Noon Check-out time: Noon
If you have more than 24 people in your group, you must obtain a permit from Chugach State Park officials (907-345-5014).
Only permit holders, may use the area which includes the food storage locker, picnic table, latrine and metal fire ring. Please attach your printed permit to the designated sign post and make sure the date and # of persons is clearly visible. The latrine is located about 50 feet beyond the picnic area. Please bring your own toilet paper. The latrine was finished in September 2018 with support from a grant from REI.
IMPORTANT: You will need to select a date PLUS the total number of adults and children. If you don't do this on the first page, the fee will not be calculated correctly.
