Date of Stay:

A gravel lot with 8 full hookups for $20 right in town, across from both a restaurant and a supermarket. Also a separate dump station for passers-through, for $5. Great value. Good Verizon signal. There is a RR track right behind the sites but no trains passed while I was there. Note: This is not actually at the visitors center but a few blocks away. Only two sites were filled.

Date of Stay:

There is no reason this provincial park should cost $23! The sites are designated 'lakeside' sites but none are on the lake. The lake, itself, is not even pretty. Most $18 P.P. parks are far nicer. I would not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Half of the sites are right on the lake and most of those have gravel ramps for easy launching of canoe or kayak. Very nice park and excellent sites.

Date of Stay:

OK park, nice staff. The 'free Wifi' is limited to 50MB per 24 hours per device, which they don't tell you until after you've checked in. It is also very slow. The side-by-side sites are a little tight. Quiet most of the time but there was a power saw running much of the day while I was there. The cable TV was fairly limited but rare to get it up here at all.

Date of Stay:

Very nice Territorial park with gravel roads & roomy sites with good privacy. Would definitely return.

Date of Stay:

This is a pretty standard Alaska state park. Sites are dirt and shady. There are lake sites but all were taken. Hoped to see grizzly bears on the river but only saw one on my way out after my two-day stay. The road along the river is very busy with bear seekers and vehicles blocking the road but it is an easy walk from the campsites. Bald eagles in residence along the river. Was told that August would be better for bear viewing. Would definitely return.

Date of Stay:

The park itself is nice, sparsely used and no wonder, with the access road as bad as it is. Although the sign said '14% grade', it probably wasn't that steep but the potholes and general condition made it very unpleasant even with my small Class C. I don't think I'd return here unless the road was improved. The sites are gravel and not level.

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.

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.

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.
