AK: New owner plans private campground along Knik River

Listen to this story

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A new, private campground is coming to the Knik River area in the Butte.

Jim Parker recently bought a 93-acre parcel of land north of the river that includes a gravel strip near the water. He has big plans to improve the area and create the Knik Campground.

“The property came with five cabins so those will be back in the woods a bit, some tent camping, and then for people who have RVs. But the main thing that I’m working on is we need some kind of toilet facilities: water, power, things like that. So just the basic amenities for a campground,” Parker explained.
