Eagle Beach Campground

The trails at Eagle River State Recreation Area are mostly groomed by the onsite caretaker, with occasional grooming by JNSC volunteers, .The campground and surrounding trails (~5km) are groomed for skate and classic skiing, with occossional skiing under the Eagle River bridge and back behind the Methodist Camp when snow allows. The trails start from the parking lot and wind through the campground, up-river, past the Berry Patch Cabin, and with enough snow can connect to additional trails at the Methodist Camp accessed under the Eagle River Bridge. The terrain is flat and can offer great river, forest, and mountain views. The forest can offer protection from on-shore breezes. Skiers with dogs should keep them under control and clean up after them. Permanent outhouses are available in the parking lot in addition to a charging station for your electric car! Located at ~milepost 28 on Glacier Highway, Juneau, AK, 99801.
