Recreational Improvements Underway at Bird Creek Campground

Posted: August 10, 2012 - 6:07am

ANCHORAGE — The Bird Creek Campground’s ongoing rehabilitation project is expected to be completed by June 2013 and the campground is expected to reopen at that time, according to Chugach State Park officials.

The campground, located near Milepost 101 of the Seward Highway and approximately 20 miles south of Anchorage, has been closed for the last two summers due to the presence of extensive stands of dead and dying spruce trees which pose a public hazard due to their increasing susceptibility to unexpectedly snap and fall without warning.

Most of the hazard trees have been removed but the campground will remain closed for construction. The campground rehabilitation project includes moving the entrance approximately one-quarter mile to the south of its present location just past the Seward Highway Bird Creek bridge crossing, and additional parking for access to the paved Indian to Girdwood trail. The project is being paid for through both state and federal funds.
