Date of Stay:

Very attractive, meticulously maintained campground. Well-trimmed grass sites, some back-in, some pull-through. My site was full hookups with CATV & Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi was very good. There was some traffic noise but this is a very nice park--the best I've seen in Alaska.

Date of Stay:

The road in is mostly dirt and is very dusty when dry, muddy when wet. The campground is probably very scenic when it's not cloudy & rainy as it was the two days I spent there. Sites very private, gravel, mostly shaded. The trail and wooden boardwalk along the falls is very nice. Did not use restrooms. Would come here again.

Date of Stay:

This is an OK park. Nice staff. The dump station is very strange--a deep cement hole, but it worked. Laundry room has only two washers & two dryers, one of which wasn't working. The pull-through gravel sites are side-by-side, sharing hookup posts. If the park had been full, it would have been very tight.

Date of Stay:

Got water & electric site at a great price. Gravel pull-throughs. No Wi-Fi but a good Verizon signal. There is a sporting goods store in front with a large array of fishing & hunting gear as well as firearms. Hardly anyone in the campground--only one other besides me. This is a very good choice in Tok and I would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

The setting here is spectacular and the sites private. The only negative was the absence of any garbage cans of any kind. Since I clean up after my dog, this was rather inconvenient. Not sure how a person could stay more than a few days.

Date of Stay:

After a very long and rainy day driving to Valdez, I was checked into the Bayside RV Park by a smiling young woman who made me feel like a welcome and valuable customer. It made me realize how much my perception of a park can be affected by the check-in process. Yes, it's a gravel parking lot with close sites but it's right on the bay with mountains all around and conveniently in town. I would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

These two loops have back-ins that are not suitable for large RVs and are not very level. But the park is quiet. There are no clear views of the lake from the campground [that I could find] but only from the boat launch area. Good 4G Verizon signal. No dump or fresh water.

Date of Stay:

The setting is especially nice, on the creek and surrounded by mountains. The CATV had 12 channels, Verizon was good but the Wifi was largely useless [common in Alaska]. Stayed four days and would return.

Date of Stay:

Checking in was a challenge, since there seemed to be no one around except a builder who was there remodeling the office and he had nothing to do with managing the park. Finally, a child located a young woman who checked me into a site. The site was ill-defined, as the utility pole sticking up through the high weeds was the only clue. This park is right on the highway and the traffic was loud and constant. The family [of the owner?] used the site next to me to build a fire and have a huge get-together one evening while I was there. The family doesn't care if anyone stays there or not and RVers are only tolerated. There was only one other RV there during the two days I was there. They would do well to spend a little more effort on the RV park instead of remodeling the office, in my opinion. I would not return.

Date of Stay:

Sites are paved and have views of nearby glaciers. The Trail of Blue Ice follows the creek, as well, and is a mile and a half to the Visitor's Center. Beautiful paved trails and settings, with picturesque bridges. Verizon signal weak. I actually visited this park twice in one month as it is so attractive.

Date of Stay:

Very pretty campground on the river. Paved sites & interior roads. Dump station with potable water fill. Excellent Verizon signal.

The older woman working at the desk when I checked in was quite rude so my first impression was not great. Later, a younger woman was in the office and she was much friendlier. The park is OK but nothing special considering the price. Laundry was $3.50 per load. Didn't use the restrooms. Sites are large and reasonably level.

Date of Stay:

Truly one of the most beautiful campgrounds I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. On the shores of Kluane Lake and surrounded by glaciated mountains. Sites back up to the lake and are private, surrounded by trees. Perfect.

Date of Stay:

This place was actually 'Closed', but when I inquired, the owner said I could dry camp for $10. I asked about Wifi and he said if I needed to use it for half an hour he would run the generator for me, which he did. Actually a very pleasant campground with grass & trees. Don't know why it's closed but appreciated being able to camp there overnight as I didn't need hookups.

Date of Stay:

This was a pleasant surprise--a spacious park with lots of green grass and staggered sites. WiFi was a little weak but usable. Laundry room small but clean. Only real downside was the traffic noise. Would stay here again.
