Little Fawn Campground USFS, Bend, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Little Fawn campground is a Forest Service park with 32 sites. 20 regular sites and 12 sites for groups. We stayed in a group site with several friends. Some of the group sites are level and fairly nice, others present a challenge to get into and level an RV. There is a well for water, but it was out of service when we camped there. An arm of Elk Lake abuts some of the regular sites in the campground, but the water is low this time of the year and had receded away from the campground. There is a boat launch that makes the lake accessible.

Check the campground website before coming to see if the well pump is fixed. We camped at Little Fawn Campground USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Ellensburg KOA, Ellensburg, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice park just off I-90 in Ellensburg. Easy off and onto the freeway. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was level and shaded. We were a stone's throw from the Yakima river. Mature trees and green grass made the surroundings seem peaceful. We would stay here again. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Cultus Lake Provincial Park, Cultus Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in this park on our way through the area. The check in staff was friendly and efficient. Although our site (D-47) was long enough for our 20 foot trailer, it was very difficult to back into. Trees next to the narrow road posed a problem. The site driveway was up hill to the parking pad and I was glad to have 4 wheel drive to back our LIGHT weight trailer into it. Many site back up to the main road and there seemed to be traffic all night long.

On the other had the setting is beautiful and the restrooms were clean. The showers were clean also, but only provided cold water.

If you reserve a site here be sure to get one away from the road. We camped at Cultus Lake Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Kokanee Bay Motel, Cabins & Campground, Lac La Hache, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a delightful place to stay when in Lac La Hache. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park has been under the same ownership since 1978. It is right on Lac La Hache (lake) and the setting is beautiful. Our site backed up to a small creek running through the park and the site was a few feet from the lake. Many of the sites back right up to the lake. The creek was full of small fish and an eagle was perched in a tree at the edge of the park. there is gas station and restaurant right across the street. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Kokanee Bay Motel, Cabins & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

We enjoyed staying in this park on our way to the lower 48. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park including the showers and restrooms were very clean. Our site was spacious and level. This park is a little off of the main road, but easy enough to get to. Wi-Fi is available, but at an extra cost. We decided to forgo it for our stay.

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great park to stay at while in the area. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park was very clean. Also, the laundry room was very clean. We didn't use the restrooms or showers. The setting is beautiful and nearly the whole park is covered in green grass. The sites have trees between them. Our site was level and easy to get into and out of. We would stay here again.

Tatogga Lake Resort, Iskut, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is in a beautiful setting. Tatogga Lake is on the edge of the park and pretty mountains are nearby. There is lots of green grass and sites are plenty big enough. Unfortunately, the place needs some care. Junk boards and discarded chairs were seen around the sites. The restrooms and showers needed cleaning.

On the upside the lodge building is very nice and the restaurant there serves great food! Not sure if we would stay here again. We camped at Tatogga Lake Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Baby Nugget RV Park, Watson Lake, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in this RV park on our way home from Alaska. It was OK for overnight. Park could use some maintenance. Someone's junk left in our site and grass and weeds between sites could be removed. Wi-Fi only worked while standing outside office. Interior roads had some potholes, but could navigate around them. We would probably look for another place if in the area again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Northern Nights RV Campground, Glennallen, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

We found that this RV park was OK for the night while traveling through the area. The park is conveniently located right off of the highway. Our site was fairly level and easy to get into and out of. Showers were clean and bright. The only downside was that the business next door started making a LOT of racket about 6:30AM on Sunday morning! The manager said that the neighbor was redoing a metal building. We camped at Northern Nights RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Williwaw Campground - USFS, Whittier, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

We enjoyed staying at this campground. It is nestled in the gorgeous Portage valley. The sites are of ample size and not too close to the neighbors. The "Trail of Blue Ice" runs through the campground. It is a hiking biking trail that is several miles long that is worth the effort to travel. It is dry camping with outhouses and hand water pumps. Our site was level and was big enough for our 20' trailer with the p/u still attached. We only briefly talked with the camp host as we had reserved our site in advance. We used this campground as a base to explore the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Williwaw Campground - USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Portage Valley Cabins & RV Park, Girdwood, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This RV park is basically a big gravel parking lot. There are a few back-in sites at the edge of the campground that have grass and fire rings. Wi-Fi works good if your site is fairly near the office. The real draw for this place is the setting which is just beautiful! It is also conveniently located to Whittier from which we took a day cruise. Price seemed to me to be steep for what we got. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if we needed the water and electric hook ups. We camped at Portage Valley Cabins & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Riley Creek Campground (NPS Campground), Denali National Park, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has fairly nice sites except that most sites are short. It was probably constructed when RVs weren't as long as the typical RV is now. The restrooms are clean as well as the campground in general. The rate of $9/night was with the Senior pass discount.

The interior roads are very bad with numerous deep pot holes. When filled with water, you can't see what you are getting into. Even a little repair would be helpful!

There is Wi-Fi available at the Wilderness Access Center as well as washers and dryers. The campground is very convenient to the bus tours that are available.

There is a dump site available, but there are no hook-ups in the campground.

Reservations can be made, but not for a specific site. When you get to the park you have your choice of any site not yet taken, therefore it is wise to arrive early to get a site that will accommodate your vehicles.

We would probably stay here again. We camped at Riley Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Delta State Recreation Site, Delta Junction, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a simple state park along the Alaska Highway. We found that it was a good place for an overnight stay. The sites are spacious and treed. Some sites are not very level and may pose a problem leveling. The few pull through sites are wide spots in the interior road, but the rest are back in. There aren't any services here. Thee is a private airport next to the campground, but we only heard one takeoff during our stay there. We never saw a camp host our entire time there, just a few other campers. Although the park is just off of the highway, noise wasn't a problem. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. We camped at Delta State Recreation Site in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice park along the Alaska highway. It is in a beautiful setting . The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites are level and have some trees twix them. Wi-fi is only available at the office, but they have places to sit and do your internet. There are many old army vehicles on the property to view. After registering a park employee will lead you to your site. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.

Hi Country RV Park, Whitehorse, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a good place to stay while traveling the Alaska highway. It is close to the highway, but so close that noise is a problem. The sites have some trees between them and have picnic tables. Most sites are quite short and will require you to unhook your tow vehicle. I wish that I had asked for a longer site when reserving. Staff wasn't overly friendly, but answered questions if asked. Wi-fi worked great at our campsite. You get a 1/2 hour for free and then you pay for more time if you choose. We camped at Hi Country RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
