Stariski Campground is located at milepost 152 along the Sterling Highway between Anchor Point and Homer Alaska. $12.00 per night is the best deal you will get on a million dollar view of Cook Inlet. Eagles fly bight by your campsite too.

What a great challenge with a win/win scenario. 
 
Today at an event with President Obama, we announced the Little Box Challenge, a $1 million prize to develop the next generation of power inverters. This prize is one of Google’s many efforts to advance a clean energy future. We have a goal of powering our operations with 100% renewable energy, and to that end have contracted over a gigawatt of wind energy for our data centers. Beyond powering our own operations, we’ve also committed over $1 billion to 16 renewable energy projects around the world. Keep an eye on www.littleboxchallenge.com for more information in the coming months!

Will our homes and autos soon generate their own power? 
"Because it is extremely thin, could potentially be used to coat structures or even windows without getting in the way".
Solar power could soon be used directly in the manufacture of new solar cells, making production of a key chemical require zero energy.

Campsites are level, hard packed gravel with manicured grass and lots of trees.

For years we passed right on by Stariski Campground but this time we decided to stop and check out the views. The panoramic views were breathtaking; needless to say we stayed here for the night. Do yourself right, stop and see for yourself the amazing views of Cook Inlet from Stariski Campground.

This has to be read completely before the title makes any sense. Funny how this appeared in my mail the same day this was being spoken about as we were preparing to interview new candidates for employment.
Stephanie is a mother of two kids and recently had enough. She wrote and eye-opening public confession on her blog... after I saw it, I totally agree with her.

We had our Class A windshield repaired by Auto Glass Express as it kept popping out when we used the jacks and in a few instances when going over speed bumps in the RV Parks. They removed the glass and rubber seals, cleaned them and reinstalled them. We have never had a problem sense. That was in 2012. Now after a trip over the Alaska Highway we need a new windshield, we are waiting till we get to Spokane so these folks can help us with a nice new chip free view. Thanks guys, should be pulling in within the next few week.

When you are the only dog on the block you don't need to have service or even deliver the services you are charging for. That pretty much sums up Alaska Communications here on the Kenai Peninsula. We can't bring up a news site like KTUU without the browser locking up. Try something like CNN or USA Today and everything locks up... can't even close out of it till the page loads. NASTY!! Stinks being forced to move our Alaskan business back to Washington but this is totally unworkable.

Without any doubt some are confusing this place with the one run by the previous owners, This revitalized is the RV park, with cabins and wall tents that is without any doubt one of the highlights of the entire Alaska highway experience. As for courtesy, the owner makes sure you are happy, comfortable and satisfied with your stay. There FREE walking museum of actual vehicles and memorabilia from the construction of the highway is nothing short of amazing. Every detail of our stays exceeded expectations, that's multiple stays because the owner and crew has been fantastic hosts on each visit. Evening gatherings around the community fire introduced people to one another. Stories were shared about their favorite places to visit and the whole thing was lead by the owner. These reviews bothered me enough that I had to inject my two cents. We feel that NOT stopping at Discovery Yukon Lodgings is like missing one of the best parts of the trip. All too often we fail to review businesses unless something went wrong; that can happen. When you see how much work has and continues to go into these roadside lodgings, especially these that are off the energy grid and have to produce their own electricity you will be amazed at the quality of the service and the cleanliness of the facilities. This is a MUST SEE stop and I personally recommend it to everyone.

If water and sewer hookups were available this would be a 5 star campground with it's outstanding Alaskan atmosphere, excellent fishing and the paved walking and biking trails. Paved paths are equipped with highway underpasses and a bridge over the creek too. Aside from the excellent fishing, Montana Creek Campground offers a great base camp for exploring the town of Talkeetna as well as for day trips to Denali National Park.

When we're looking to get away and enjoy some relaxing time in Homer we often make our way to Bishops Beach in old town Homer. This is a nice area to relax, walk on the beach and have a quiet walk on the new Beluga Slough trail that is accessed from the parking lot. Been coming here for some 30 years and never get tired of it. When you're in Homer, give some thought to visiting Bishops Beach.
