The state park is simply wonderful. Don't know if there's camping, but if you contact the Indepndence Mine state Park, I'm sure they can help. The Hatcher Pass lodge is right at the park; it';s not luxurious---chemical toilets, for example, in the cabins--but the location is great. Be sure to get a four-wheel drive vehicle if you do the pass road---the rental car contracts forbid normal cars from using it, although it's not that bad if you don't mind risking paying for an oil pan or windshield our of your own insurance.

I don't know if there is an camping area near the mind but we stayed overnight on a pullout between the sign for Musk Ox Farm and the road to Independence Mine.
