Finger Lake State Recreation Site is located 0.7 mile west of the Trunk Road/Bogard Road intersection. The campground offers a quiet retreat between two cities, Palmer and Wasilla. There are 24 campsites, 2 group-use camping areas, 25 picnic sites, water, toilets, and a boat launch. The recreation site provides lake access for boaters and sport fisherman. Finger Lake has good fishing for Rainbow, Arctic Char, and Grayling with access to winter ice fishing.

Boaters on Finger Lake are advised that the Mat-Su Borough enforces special motorized use restrictions that require boat motors to have mufflers, cowlings, and exhaust systems. No motors may be operated from 11:00pm -8:00am. No wake zones are in effect within 100 feet out from shoreline.

Tours, classes, and paddle craft rentals are available from Paddle Sports by True North AK.

A limited number of campsites are now available by reservation through ReserveAmerica.com. Reservations are available from approximately Memorial Day through August, but is subject to camp host and staff availability. Several sites are still available on a first-come, first served basis.
