Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. At this time there are no trails, facilities or designated campsites in Swan Creek Protected Area. However, the Salmon Run Forest Recreation Site is located across from the protected area, on the north side of the Copper River Forest Service Road at about the 30 km marker. The Salmon Run site has three campsites, picnic tables, fire rings and a pit toilet.


While campfires are allowed, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of campfires and using camp stoves instead. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. No firewood available.
