Rate includes local tax. Stayed four nights in backin site to golf course. Green grounds, green trees, nice view, creek. Good utilities, with pole between two sites for trailer or motorhome. Very clean. Reasonably quiet, good location to Astoria and Warrenton. Very clean grounds. Gravel sites acceptable and mostly level. Wide street makes easy backin.

Date of Stay:

Nice ocean side state park, meets the high standards of the OR state parks. Asphalt sites are reasonably level. No sewer and just two lanes at the dump station at the entrance. Walk to small town Manzanita for basic services, or back to highway 101 to reach more. Watch out for low hanging scrub pines at sites. I did not see sites for big rigs, considering the narrow loop roads and trees all about. Very busy in the summer: reservations are a must.

Date of Stay:

This is dry camping at its finest. There were only a dozen people there at any one time during our five days. It is quiet, and beautiful. It is a short walk to the beach. It is two miles to the Castle, which is worth the trip by itself. There is a good dump station, though it has only two lanes for that large facility. There are water spigots at every few sites.

Date of Stay:

It features nice sites, clean with lots of greenery. There are turkeys roaming through the sites. The larger sites are in the last loop at the end of the road. We found the old style sewer connection too far back to use it. I drove into a pull through upon departure for the sewer, and almost scraped my 35' trailer on the electric post. It is a good location between SLO and Morro Bay.

Date of Stay:

Nice setting next to a lake, though it was too cold in August to swim. Pull through sites have small trees between them, with average width. Narrow driveway for exit. Power pole is kind of strange though. 50amp service with a 30 amp dogbone secured to it by a chain. Can't use direct 50amp power. Only through the 30 amp dogbone. Good WiFi and water pressure. Was VERY CLOSE to the highway.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful wooded provincial park overlooking the Fraser Canyon. Long sites, tho not so level as it sits on a mountainside. Dry camping, tho water taps in the park. Sanitary dump listed, tho we didn't try it and don't really know if they have one.

THIS PARK IS CLOSED.

Date of Stay:

Decent sites, though the central utilities means paying attention to the side you pull into. Plus it has excellent WiFi service. The septic station near the center of the park, smelled up the area, including our site. Smelled even when people were not dumping. Worse when they were. We didn't spend any time outside. We will probably return to the park in a few weeks, but will certainly stay away from that area.

Date of Stay:

Nice dry quiet campground 15 miles into the park. We preferred this to Riley, due to the noise from the park entrance. Moose and grizzly bears and other wildlife passed through the CG. Has a good view of Mt. Denali when it occasionally emerges. Be careful of the large pull through sites. The curve of the site and the 4x4 timbers along the edges can fool you. I should have backed into mine, rather than pulling in. Wound up moving the 4x4 just to park. (Shhh!) Rate based on Golden Age pass.

Date of Stay:

Wooded sites with lots of room between them. Varying lengths on sites. Divided into A sites for long rigs, and B sites for shorter ones. Good water and septic dump. Only negative was the noise from road construction and helicopters one and two miles away at the entrance. So we moved to Savage CG afterward. Then there is Denali: fabulous. Get there early with a big rig, or maybe you suffer!

Date of Stay:

Short, very narrow sites. Unattractive. I heard that the WiFi didn't work well. $40.50/night ain't worth it, but in keeping with AK prices. Sadly other parks in Anchorage looked worse. "Port in a storm." We stayed one night, filled our larder at Freds and Costco, then moved on. Try Eagle River SRA 13 miles north, tho dry camping. Or dry camp at Fred Meyers, a few miles east of this park.

     

Kenai RV Park

Kenai, Alaska

Date of Stay:

Small park one block from the bay. Owners on site are very friendly and helpful. They even have an espresso stand on site! Plus the Burger Bus one block over for great hamburgers. We chose this park after reading mediocre reviews of nearby Beluga Park. Too true. (Those spaces are much too close together. If you don't rent a higher price view lot, you are closed in). Rate here is based on $200/week, then add $12 tax.

Date of Stay:

Same as others' experience. We dry camped for five nights at the Itiderod park at the southern end of the town, with an unrestricted view of the bay and mountains. The most fabulous view in our three years of FTing. $15/night, max two weeks. $5 to dump plus good city water. Wide backin spaces, long enough for our 35' trailer. Very nice town. Lots of wildlife activities. Would have been a 10 with utilities. But we wouldn't trade the view, and our little 10 space park was quieter than the larger ones further north.

Date of Stay:

We stayed in the upper part of the park without sewer, because the lower part is too crowded and near the road. Nice sites up here, mostly back in's. Some of the hookups were on wrong side of the RV, but with no sewer, this doesn't really matter. Free Wi-Fi was OK during the day, but slow in the evening. Owner very nice. Great free showers. They sell the cheapest diesel I could find in Whitehorse. Even a mechanic available to change your oil, or you can use the pad to change your own for $5. RV wash for $1 for 3 minutes (I think). Coin operated dog wash too, with commercial tub. We will come back on our return from AK.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful setting, with favored sites backing up to the lake. No services at the site. Water spigots on the road. Despite the description on the park web page, NO SANI-DUMP (Dump station). They closed it two years ago, but have not updated the description. Closest dump north is in MacKenzie at the municipal park, where you can stay at a dry site free for up to three days.
