Public campground with some seasonals. Great location very near the spit shops and fishing fleet. The fishing hole was mostly unproductive during our one week stay. I do not think it is as good as in years past for some reason. View of fishing hole and area was good. No facilities other than a dirty rest room, fish cleaning station and a dump site. Public campground in Seward is nicer and cleaner with electrical hook-up option--for a fee. After several trips to Homer area, it is not as appealing as in years past--in my opinion. There is a lot to do in Homer and it is a special place not to be missed! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice place to stay if you are only looking for dry camping. We parked right next to the fishing hole and walked to the shops at the harbor. Our neighbor welcomed us into camp with a big plate of delicious beer battered halibut and blackened halibut. Very friendly people at this camp, and a great place to watch the bald eagles. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This review is for the City of Homer campground. There is a commercial site with this same name at the end of the spit (much more expensive and not any nicer for motorhomes). Level gravel parking lot with tight sites right on Kachemak bay and roomier sites just back a little bit. Spectacular views of mountains and glaciers. Many folks stay here with their boats. Fishing cleaning station and dump station available ($2). Easy walking to tourist activities: fishing, flight seeing, bear viewing, water taxis. Bike/walking trail nearby. Watch for eagles on the lampposts. A bit noisy and a somewhat of an industrial feel. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is essentially an all-gravel lot for dry camping right near the deep-water marina and the "fishing hole" on the Homer Spit. It's city-run and has a fish-cleaning station and an inexpensive dump station with potable water available. The city has another similar setup off the Spit near the Post Office. Many sites are separated by old railroad ties and are about 30' wide. "Beachfront" sites aren't lined off and are more appropriate for big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This review is for the campground right past the fishing hole. The sites are all back in. Most sites have numbers along the wooden dividers, but the sites along the water front don't seen to all have numbers and most don't have dividers. These are very close. There is a water fill and a dump station. The views are great. Homer is a fishing town and a little touristy. We would stay here again. They need a better layout and a host would be helpful as people were rolling around the dividers. There is no shade. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are three different camping areas on the Spit. The first you come to is Mariner Park on the right at the base of the Spit. The second is across from the Fishing Hole about 3 miles from the base on the right. The third is on the left just past the Fishing Hole. There are portal potties and flush toilets at the Fishing Hole area. There are no showers or dump station, although there is one in town across the highway from the post office. There are some picnic table and homemade fire rings on the beach. Parking is on gravel. If you can do without hookups and don't wish to pay high fees, this is a nice way to go. The views are splendid. You will see everything from tents to high-end motorhomes here. There is a 14-day limit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
