Camp by the ocean or in the woods and enjoy weekly fun activities hosted at Miller's Landing lodge.
Miller’s Landing is accessed via Lowell Point Road, a beautiful 2.5 mile dirt road bordered by the mountain and Resurrection Bay. It’s hard to drive down without spotting Stellar Sea Lion, Sea Otter, Eagles, and more! There are salmon of all species fished for and caught right off the roadway as well, and many areas to pull aside to take a photo along the way.
The dirt road does have it’s drawbacks – the City of Seward manages the maintenance for the road and the residents of Lowell Point, and after a heavy rain the road generally has potholes. It is narrow in some places and driving the road in a motor home can be slow, but many people do it every day in the summer. The City is generally quick about it’s maintenance, though sometimes it can be a day or so before it is graded – be aware!
We recently purchased the property North to us, which has a dry campground as well! Formerly the “Silver Derby” campground, we’ve named it Miller’s Landing North or the Annex. This campground is bordered by Spruce Creek on one side, and the ocean on the other! It has a 4 person outhouse and is approximately 2 blocks or a 5 minute walk from the camp store and facilities at Miller’s Landing down the beach. This campground does not have running water or electricity, and again is a 5 minute walk to our laundry/shower house and plumbed bathrooms. It offers fantastic views and great fishing, and we look forward to improving it as the years go on! It is a great spot for tent camping and dry motor home camping, and we often rent out the whole area for weddings, family reunions, and events.
Please note that, due to space and parking constraints, our camp sites are meant for 4 guests/site and one vehicle/site (for RV sites, a camper + what is hauling it is considered one ‘vehicle’). For each guest over 4 there will be a $5 charge/night; for each vehicle beyond the first, there will be a $10 charge/night. We live in a small community and parking is at a premium, due to increased volume and the likelihood for guests to travel with multiple vehicles, we’ve had to build out multiple area parking solutions to keep the grounds less cluttered.

In some situations a raincheck worth 75% of your reservation may be issued at the discretion of Miller’s Landing management instead of the applicable cancellation charge. If this option appeals to you please suggest this at the time of cancellation. Rainchecks are good for one year and may be used for activities, camping or lodging owned by Miller’s Landing or towards the cost of hats, tee shirts, gifts, etc. sold in the Miller’s Landing store or items sold online. For items purchased online the customer is expected to pay for the cost of postage. Rainchecks may NOT be transferred to another person.
A 100% refund will be issued for any activity that was cancelled due to weather by Miller’s Landing. Miller’s Landing reserves the right to determine weather cancellations. Rain does not constitute cancellations.
Please note: Miller’s Landing encourages only guaranteed prepaid reservations. Unlike many other states, Alaska has a very short tourist season which can make it difficult for us to rebook when we have cancellations without ample notice.
If you are booking a charter and lodging and your charter , water taxi or kayaking is cancelled due to weather you are still responsible for the lodging or camping reservations and the normal cancellation policy applies. All of our activities are possible during rain, so rain does not constitute a cancellation. Miller’s Landing is not responsible for vehicle break downs, personal emergencies, flight delays, health issues or other unforeseen hardships. We will try very hard to work with you but the cancellation policy will need to be applied if we cannot issue a raincheck or find an alternative solution that appeals to both parties.
Please understand that Miller’s Landing also incurs a hefty financial merchant fee from our bank for the cost of charging your credit card and again for the cost of refunding it, and there is also a cost involved for the time involved in processing and refunding your reservation in employee costs. Our goal when taking your reservation is to have a solid, guaranteed prepaid reservation. We strongly discourage the practice of making reservations without having an airline ticket or making tentative reservations. Thank you for your understanding.
