Upper Tutka Bay Campsite

Kachemak Bay State Park

Lattitude: 59°24'37.08''N (59.4103)
Longitude: 151°17'49.2''W (-151.2970)

A small primitive campsite nestled up in the grass where a small tributary enters the bay. Difficult to find unless you are determined.

Primitive tent sites, room for one or two tents, fire pit,  latrine, water from stream.   Water access must be done two hours before or after high tide since this upper end of Tutka Bay is very shallow.  Often used by hunters.  Other sites in Tutka are more attractive and have esier access.

Access Difficulty:
Hard unless using high tide. Need two hours before or after high tide.

Hazards:
Extremely shallow when tide is out and long beach to walk.

Molly and I didn't find this on our first try-will make another attempt sometime. Eric Clark of Ak. State Parks says they don't maintain it as so few people go there. I would not recommend making this your destination, other better sites nearby. Published water trail map says a yurt here, not so.
