Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Tolsona Wilderness Campground is 10 miles from Glennallen at milepost 173 on the Glenn Hwy, between Glennallen and the turnoff for Lake Louise.
There's plenty to do and see in the Copper River Valley including some of Alaska's native villages such as Mentasta, Chistochina, Gakona, Gulkana, Tazlina, Kluti-Kaah or Copper Center, and Chitina. The Copper Center Museum and the Ahtna Native Heritage Center are also worth a visit.
The region is also known for the far-ranging mountain views, the glaciers and rivers and extensive wildlife. Fishing, hiking, canoeing and kayaking are some of Alaskans' favourite activities.
Watersports are available in the five major rivers, all accessible by car. These rivers are the Gulkana, Klutina, Tazlina, Tonsina and Copper Rivers. The campsite is conveniently located near Tolsona Lake.
Hiking is best in the Copper River Valley, thanks to its dense tree forest, and on the Matanuska trail to the glacier.
