The Municipality of Anchorage offers rustic camping opportunities during the summer months at Centennial Campground. Find yourself surrounded by the forest right in the heart of Anchorage. Visit our historic log cabin office, toast some s'mores over the fire, and let us welcome you to Alaska.

  • Do not keep food stored in your tent or outside in a cooler. Discard your garbage in the bear proof containers provided.
  • Do not bother the wildlife. Don't put yourself, others, or them in jeopardy because of your actions.
  • Children must be supervised by parents at all times.
  • All vehicles must remain on roads or in parking lots at all times. No more than two vehicles per campsite are allowed.
  • Minimize noise or other disturbances in order to maintain the serenity of all parks. Quiet time begins at 10 pm.
