Seward Waterfront Park, Seward, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have said this park is all about the view, if you are lucky enough to get an oceanside space or a third row space (third and fourth row are raised and look out over the first two rows). The view of Resurrection Bay and the mountains and glaciers is stunning. The park itself is a series of parking lots with gravel spaces marked out with white chalk lines. Not much character but it's all about the location. Only the center section has power and water; however, no sections have sewer. You have to go to the nearby dump station and fork over another $5. Fresh water is free. Not sure when they added 50 amp service but I was pleasantly surprised to find a 50 amp receptacle and breaker this trip. It's an easy walk to restaurants, the sea life museum, tourist attractions, etc. During the summer tourist months it is usually quite busy all week and on weekends it can be next to impossible to find a space; especially in mid August during the Seward silver salmon derby. We camped at Seward Waterfront Park in a Motorhome.

Kasilof RV park, Kasilof, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Kasilof RV Park is a small park with only 17 spaces, 5 of which are permanently occupied each summer. This is an "extended stay" park. In June and August the minimum stay is a week. In July the minimum stay is a month. They apparently get lots of repeat year to year business. The hookups in the full service sites on the front row are fine but only the front row has sewer, and 4 of those 8 spots are permanently taken. The remainder of the park is water and electric only, although they have a dump station. Wifi was decent while we were here and I'm sure it's partly due to the small number of patrons. Our site was long enough for our 43' pusher without toad, but due to some very unruly trees on both sides we barely got our slides out and couldn't use our awning. Branches scraped the roof and awning housings constantly in the wind.

This is another park that needs to seriously look at clearing out some brush and branches, especially if they want to keep saying they are big rig friendly. There are some turns on the park road and some sites and approaches that are too tight with the existing vegetation and overhanging branches. As it is, I wouldn't consider it as big rig friendly.

All in all this is a quiet, pretty, little park and it is moderately priced by Alaska standards. There is obviously a sense of community among many of the patrons/residents and everyone we met was quite friendly. The gracious lady in the permanent site next to ours walked around our second day and passed out bags of homemade chocolate chip cookies to all the various rigs.

This park is not a destination; it's a jumping off point to much of what the Kenai Penninsula has to offer. Other than a community fire pit, that's it for activities at the park itself.

If you have a normal size rig you will most likely be fine, but 40-45 foot Class A units with tag axles and multiple slides might want to think twice or risk scratching up their paint. We camped at Kasilof RV park in a Motorhome.

Baycrest RV Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

At Baycrest it is all about the view, as many others have already stated, and that is what you will be paying for. Other than a small camp store and showers and laundry there are no amenities and nothing to do except enjoy the view; assuming you are in an ocean side site. The sites are designed for back in parking, even on the ocean side, so if you are in a motorhome be prepared with long power cable, water hose, and sewer hose extensions if you want to face the ocean for the view. Water pressure is pretty low here. The sites are adequately sized, at least on the "upper" area. Most sites are 30 amp although about a half a dozen have 50 amp. Almost all spaces have sewer as well. They have a small paved overflow lot with nothing but a narrow parking space and even those were full during our stay. And that parking space will cost you $30. The park is clean and tidy and obviously well cared for. The young lady at the office was pleasant. There is a gas station at the entrance to the park with a very small quick stop type store but don't count on finding much more than drinks and candy. They don't really carry groceries so if you need to shop you will have to head to town where there are several full service grocery stores. If you realize the limitations and come for the view you probably won't be disappointed. We camped at Baycrest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Homer spit is the tourist hub during the summer and there are lots of shopping and eating establishments. They change from year to year so it's hard to count on things or make recommendations. It is several miles down the hill and out to the spit or shopping in town so if you don't have a toad or some transportation you will be at a disadvantage.

Heritage RV Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

Yes, it's expensive; however, in our experience it is the best RV park in Alaska. The view from the oceanfront sites is incredible. We have stayed here many times over the last 13 years and the experience is always the same; we come away satisfied with our stay. The oceanfront sites are almost twice as wide as most other parks. Our 43' 4 slide pusher fits with room to spare and that's unusual in Alaska. Sites are level and easy to get into. The oceanfront sites have rock fire pits. Bring plenty of wood. The utility's are contained in a proper lighted utility pole. Power outlets are tight and breakers work. The sewer opening has a heavy hinged cover. Others have complained about the cable but it's always worked for us. The wifi can be sketchy but it is provided by another company and is out of the park's control. The office people are friendly. There is a coffee shop and laundry/showers with an attendant. There is a free to use gas grill and a putting green. They have plenty of space for boat trailers etc. You are close enough to easily walk to all the restaurants, gift shops, and other tourist attractions on the Homer spit. No other park in Homer even comes close. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stoney Creek RV Park, Seward, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

As someone else pointed out, this is NOT a LUXURY RV park as claimed. Stoney Creek is a typical Alaskan RV park. It covered in small river rock and gravel with knee high weeds and grass that have grown up between spaces. There are nice grassed dog walking areas. Spaces are fairly wide and handled our 43' class A with 4 slides. The interior roads are easy to negotiate but can get dusty as people circle from the office to their sites and come and go throughout the day . The creekside pull-in row used to have a view of the creek but unfortunately over the years the alders along the bank have grown into a pretty impenetrable hedge. In all fairness, the land that they are on is possibly out of the park's control and the alders might have been allowed to take over for erosion control. Regardless; there is no longer a creek view and they lost much of the reason for being on that row. There are nice mountain views and eagles circle constantly. Some sites have nicer newer picnic tables, but ours had an older one that was missing boards and only had one usable bench. The 30 amp outlet (we reserved 50 amp) was cracked and worn and desperately in need of replacement. That is always one of my pet peeves; parks that charge a premium price and bill themselves as a luxury RV park and then don't put enough money back into infrastructure. Only sites on the outer rows have fire pits although there is a community fire pit next to the dumpster.

This trip we pulled into the office and were greeted with a sight of the camp dumpsters filled to overflowing and surrounded by a mound of trash. This is the worst year for bears and bear attacks that Alaska has had in decades, and allowing the trash to get to that stage was inexcusable. The wifi here is spotty at best and quits frequently. There are 12 basic cable channels. Stoney Creek is not a bad place to stay. It is just overpriced considering what you get and considering the apparent lack of maintenance. We camped at Stoney Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Willow Creek Resort, Willow, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Willow Creek is a typical Alaskan RV park. It is basically a rock and gravel pad next to a river with water and electric. There are a few sewer sites near the office but they always seem to be taken by long term residents. There are newer sites in the trees with grass but again just water and power. There is a dump station which several nearby parks don't even offer. The fishing is ok at times but the state regulations make the area in front of the park an on again off again affair. It closes for 3 days, opens for 3, etc. Read the regs before you fish. Weekends during salmon runs can get crazy. The infrastructure is getting a bit run down and repairs and upgrades don't seem to be getting done. Many of the electrical pedestals have outlets that are past being loose. They are scary. Water pressure can get low at peak times as well. Other than pop and a few fishing supplies don't count on finding anything to shop for. The on site deli snack bar closed years ago. The noise from the highway can get bad at times. Tame rabbits run loose around the property so dogs can get a bit frenzied. All in all it's not a bad place but for what you get it's pricey. We camped at Willow Creek Resort in a Motorhome.

Riverside Camper Park, Houston, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here many times over the years. It is a quick getaway destination. The park is small but the spaces are wide and you don't feel sandwiched in. The utilities are fine and each spot has power, water, and sewer. They also have a nice fire ring at each site and wood is available at a fair price. There are trees lining the park for a bit of privacy and shade during part of the day. You are right on the Little Susitna River and you can easily bank fish right there. There is nothing fancy about the park but it is always spotless and the owners are friendly and easygoing. It is one of our favorite spots. ALL SITES ARE BACK=IN! We camped at Riverside Camper Park in a Motorhome.

River's Edge Resort, Fairbanks, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

First and foremost; it is not big rig friendly. Our 43 foot class A with 4 slides barely fit in the space and we were unable to open all slides or use the awning due to overhanging branches and trees that are just wider than the space. This was their super deluxe 50 amp right next to the river best of the best site. Seriously; touted as the best site in the park The fifth wheel next door has their awning out and my water spigot will be dry because it is under their awning. No, I didn't choose the wrong spigot It's that tight in here This premier site is also next to the loop road. We are already covered in dust from the constant circling of rigs and vehicles My wife found this place on a list of ten RV parks to visit in your life. Seriously? You can do better. The folks in the office were pleasant but that doesn't make up for the disappointing site. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

This was just an overnight stay on our trip. The park is simple but they had full hookups.

The young lady that checked me in was pleasant and helpful. Sites were all pull through as far as I could tell. This time of year she just said pick any open site. Sites were huge but we had a lot of slope on ours and ran out of travel on our jacks. Luckily we had leveling pads

We didn't notice the train tracks went right by the edge of the park until a train came through. Luckily that was in the morning and not the middle of the night. A good and very cheap place to spend a few nights We camped at Caron Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stampede Campground, Williams Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice park

It was almost deserted at this time of year

The grounds are clean and we looked in the washrooms and laundry trying to find a soda machine

They were both clean

The spaces are rather narrow but we got all 4 slides out

It would not have been long enough for our 43' pusher with a toad but without a toad it was fine

It was a self check in but the attendant came around later to run our credit card

She was quite pleasant and we had a nice chat

This was just an overnight stopping point on our trip and from what we could tell there is not much around

The park is mainly there to support the annual Stampede (rodeo) and apparently gets totally full during that time. We camped at Stampede Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is beautiful

Lots of trees and landscaping but they need to prune overhanging branches

The space we had was a pull through and was long enough but at a rather tight approach angle

Utilities were fine but water and power were at the far end of the site and sewer was in the middle

Some rigs might need extension cords or extra water hose

You are REQUIRED to have Jack stand pads so be prepared. We camped at Deerwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort, Oceano, California

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a "last minute, couldn't find anyplace else in the area" choice

The park is all gravel pads and is quite dusty at times if the wind blows

There are a few stunted palms but otherwise not much that's green and zero shade

There are a lot of full time residents and rigs and many are not well kept

The hookups were adequate

The roads are a bit tight and some turns getting to the site took a couple of tries in my 43' pusher

My space was barely long enough for my rig and with all slides out it was crowded on both sides

A huge 5th wheel tried parking on our second day and finally had to give up and go to an alternate site

The beach is almost 2 miles away across some beautiful sand dunes

My grandson and I hiked over and were sorely disappointed

As soon as you top the last dune you are treated to a scene of a beach area filled to the brim with ATVs and four wheel drive rigs roaring up and down the beach

The number of dogs in the park was astounding and they were constantly on the move

The morning we were leaving someone's yappy little dog was going at it full volume

A full time resident stuck his head out and shouted "shut that f###### dog the f### up"

My wife turned to me and said "time to go"

If you are vacationing, look elsewhere. We camped at Pacific Dunes Ranch and RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Baby Nugget RV Park, Watson Lake, Yukon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Overpriced. Park was almost empty. There were 8 other sites with campers but we couldn't get a 50 amp pull through.

We were in a 43' pusher with 4 slides and couldn't put out an awning. Not sure why we didn't rate one of their huge pull through sites; it's not like anyone else was here.

When we pulled out, our road led right to the front gate; which was barricaded closed. We finally found an exit sign after cruising around for a bit. That was a little disconcerting.

$45 Canadian for 30 amps, unwatchable cable tv, and as others have stated, no wifi. The sewer connection seemed adequate. Luckily we just stayed one night on our way north.

Would not stay here again unless the price was about half. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hi Country RV Park, Whitehorse, Yukon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

As stated by others they need to trim some trees and bushes

Many of the pull through sites are at fairly sharp angles

They also tend to have trees right at the corners

Many of these trees have been hit repeatedly and have all the bark knocked off

They need to get the picture and clean up the sites

The site they first assigned me for my 43' 4 slide motorhome was entirely too narrow and the entry angle was impossible

Had to back all the way out to the office and start over with a new site suited to my rig's size

The staff was friendly and helpful

The hookups were ok

Cable tv is almost worthless

The wifi is free.....

For 90 minutes

Then you are asked to pay to keep going

There must be an airport very close as we had to listen to choppers, jets, etc constantly

Road noise is bad as well

As I write this several dogs are having a barking contest and no one is supervising them. We camped at Hi Country RV Park in a Motorhome.
