Rosehip Campground is situated along the Chena River in the Chena River State Recitation Area. This location is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike, offering visitors a chance to experience the beauty of Alaska's natural landscapes. The area is home to a variety of flora and fauna, including several species of fish that are prized by fishermen from around the world.
In 2016, a collaborative effort between the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, the Alaska Sustainable Salmon Fund, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service led to the installation of various measures aimed at preserving the area's delicate ecosystem. Specifically, 350-feet of rootwads, 350-feet of double brush layers, and 10-feet by 350-feet of vegetative mat were installed along the riverbank. These measures have helped to protect the riverbank from erosion and promote the growth of native plant species.
Today, Rosehip Campground remains a popular destination for nature enthusiasts and anyone seeking a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. The campground provides visitors with access to the Chena River and the surrounding wilderness, offering opportunities for fishing, hiking, and wildlife watching. Thanks to the efforts of conservationists and concerned individuals, the area remains a pristine example of Alaska's natural beauty.
