Kenai Princess RV Park, Cooper Landing, Alaska

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

Kenai Princess RV is one of the best RV parks we've found in Alaska. It is located at a bluff above the Kenai River with full access to the Main Resort lodge and facilities. They have 2 restaurants with a deck overlooking the river. There is also have a small workout room and a jacuzzi (which was closed due to repairs when we were there). The road is gravel and you do have to make a rather tight turn at the end, but even with a very long rig we managed it. Being off the main highway is great as it is very quiet (no trains, planes or automobiles). We've been able to get Dish satellite almost everywhere in Alaska, but not here due to the trees and mountains. They supply cable TV though (about 20 channels); our reception wasn't very good at first but my husband cleaned the connectors at the post and it worked fine. The free Wifi is generally good. One of My husband's favorite features is that it is very close to fishing in the Kenai and Russian Rivers, so he went almost every day (and came home with about 40 pounds of salmon......wooohooo!). One note is that the fire rings are portable, and there are only 2, so reserve one early. We'll definitely come back. We camped at Kenai Princess RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat at the Kingfisher Roadhouse on the Sterling Hwy (east of the RV Park several miles). It doesn't look like much from the road but is quite interesting and VERY Alaskan. Fish on the far side of the Kenai by taking the Ferry across and walking to the right a bit. They accept the America The Beautiful National Park pass so parking & the ferry are 1/2 price.

Baycrest RV Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

This park had the most awesome views across the bay and mountains; probably the best in all of Alaska that we've seen and it was from the living room window of our coach. Our site was level and pretty spacious (though not all of them are) and it was the only time we've ever been able to unhook our truck from the 5th wheel and pull it straight out front to park....really long sites. The sites that back in to the bluff have grass behind them and it's not like a manicured lawn, so at times it was a little rough....but that only added to the character since the bluff drops straight down behind you. Other than grass there are a few mature trees but not much other landscaping. The gravel roads and sites are fairly level and well maintained. You're just off off the Sterling Hwy but it's not noisy at all. Our Dish satellite worked well, but their free WiFi didn't work sometimes and was a little slow. If we're ever back in Homer we'll definitely stay here again. We camped at Baycrest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Heritage RV Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

As in all real estate you always want Location, Location, Location. Boy does this place have it all. Beachfront with an ocean view out both sides, mountains and glaciers everywhere, walking/biking distance to fishing or dining or shopping. We used our bikes to get around a lot of the time since there is a paved walking/biking path that runs the entire length of the Homer Spit. Our Dish satellite worked well so we didn't try the cable. Their wi-fi was free but didn't work well at all so I finally gave up and used our Verizon wifi. There are no fire rings in the actual campground, but our site backed right up to the beach and we had a big bonfire several nights burning mostly driftwood we found on the beach. I agree that the sites along the beach are meant for Class A's to pull into, but we have a 5th wheel and backed in. This meant our utilities had to come across the site, but our neighbor behind us let us use their sewer connection a couple of times to avoid that hassle. Most sites are very tight, but somehow we managed to get one that was very wide and we had plenty of room for our awnings. The price is very high, but this is the only place on the Spit we even considered staying. Make reservations 2-3 months in advance if you want beachfront. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Klondike RV Park & Cabins, Soldotna, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

As far as campgrounds go in Alaska this one was very nice. The owner lives on-site and was friendly and helpful; even loaned us a 50 amp extension cord so we could back in further and get satellite reception. The roads and sites are new gravel and well maintained. Almost all sites are back-in but the roads are wide enough that it wasn't difficult to do so. They're all fairly spacious with nice lawn and landscaping between. One area has quite a few trees if you want shade. Wifi was pretty good most of the time. Being only one block off the Kenai River & very close to downtown made it convenient. It's fairly quiet with only minimal noise from the airport nearby (some small planes but not many). We'll be back in a couple of weeks on our way back north from Homer. We camped at Klondike RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Stoney Creek RV Park, Seward, Alaska

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

For an Alaska campground with 50 amp / full hook-ups this was a pretty good place. The roads and sites are gravel and fairly well maintained, but the road leading in to the place was awful: gravel/mud with potholes everywhere. Long, wide, level sites. About the only grass was along the river. Cable TV was great but the free WiFi was very slow and very hit and miss. There are some daytime trains but not many (2 per day usually) so the place is mostly quiet. It is by the creek but there isn't really any access. The sites around the perimeter had fire rings but not the pull-throughs in the center. We camped at Stoney Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Golden Nugget RV Park, Anchorage, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Unfortunately, if you're a large rig and want electric then this is the only game in town, and they know it. The rate is way too high for the quality of the park. The roads are paved which is nice, but narrow with a lot of cars parked alongside, so maneuvering is difficult. The gravel sites are very tight & short; ours had a very low spot so we had to use blocks under our jacks. We couldn't fit into any of the pull-throughs as they said they were 45' but couldn't have even been 40'. We ended up using 2 smaller sites (back to back) and turned it into a pull-through. There is grass between the sites, but the dandelions were about a foot tall and it seemed like they hadn't mowed at all. There are a lot of full-time residents with junky lots even though their 'rules' say you can't have anything like that. The WiFi never let me connect for the 4 days we were there. Our Dish satellite worked if you could aim between the trees. The location is very convenient to Anchorage and stores, but is located on a main boulevard across from Costco so there was a lot of traffic noise, sirens and motorcycles. In addition you're right under the light path from the airport, again more noise. If we had any other choices we would stay somewhere else, but unfortunately we don't. We camped at Golden Nugget RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Willow Creek Resort, Willow, Alaska

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

This is a nice campground right on the Willow River. There were a lot of people fishing and putting boats in the water right off the beach. Oddly enough the pull-through sites do not have sewer and aren't quite long enough to unhook and then have a place to park the truck. The sites share a common utility pole so you'll probably be facing your neighbor. There are numerous trees around the park and grass in playground, but no other landscaping in any of the front half of the park. There is a remote dry-camping section which is all trees and natural growth which had tent campers in it. The roads and sites are all large river rock which makes leveling a challenge. Our 41' 5th wheel was a little tight on the roads. Our Dish satellite didn't work, and they don't offer cable, but there were several digital air channels available. They offer free Wifi but we never could get it to let us log in. I guess there are restrooms in the main building but we never used them. They also have porta potties in a couple of places in the park. The train ran several times a day (one time was at 6:30 am) but ear plugs let us sleep just fine. We camped at Willow Creek Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned), Denali National Park, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a very basic campground but the close proximity to Denali made it worthwhile. There are gravel roads and sites with no grass anywhere. As noted by other reviews, the sites are very tight with shrubs between that make it even tighter. Our neighbor had their picnic table in the shrubs which made our site even narrower. Also pretty short sites so our truck was parked along the side right next to our 5th wheel. We couldn't use our satellite (mountains in the way), but they provide free cable with 12 channels. The free WiFi was also fine. The road noise was distracting, but did quiet down after about 10pm. We thought the price was high for the quality of the park.

Riverview RV Park, Fairbanks, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is in a very convenient location for visiting North Pole & Fairbanks as it's about half-way between. The gravel roads at the entrance need some maintenance, but the rest of the roads and gravel sites were fine. There is grass between the sites with some trees and it's right on the Chena River. We couldn't use our Dish satellite, probably due to trees, but they supply free cable with a lot of channels. There is also free Wifi which we didn't use much since we have our own. It was usually a quiet place to stay except for the occasional noise from the gravel pit across the street, planes a couple times a day and TAPS at 10pm from the Army base nearby. The sites are kind of tight for a big rig but plenty long enough. We used the free car/RV wash and that was a big plus. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sourdough Campground, Tok, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great park with very nice on-site owners who like to get involved with their guests. The evening pancake toss is a real hoot (I won a free breakfast to boot). The sites are spaced well apart with a lot of trees so privacy was excellent. Some sites had trees pretty close to the gravel pads so bigger rigs might have to keep their awnings in...we did. Even though it's located on the highway it was very quiet for sleeping. An older park that could use a little maintenance, but overall pretty nice. Our 30 amp power worked fine. Even though there is no sewer connection there is a dump station. The free Wifi was the best we had since leaving the lower 48. If you're looking for satellite reception you probably won't get it here....too many trees. There are no fire rings but the community fire pit looked very nice. There was a fire ban in effect when we were there so sadly no fire. The RV wash looked alright but we didn't use it at $2 per cycle and it looked like it was just water with no soap. We'll stay here again on our way back south. We camped at Sourdough Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Discovery Yukon Lodgings, White River, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice park with a nice mountain view and a lot of grassy areas, including a grass airfield. In the middle of nowhere, the camp runs everything (including water) on 2 generators that run continually. A smaller one for only a few campers (fairly quiet) and a big one for larger crowds (not so quiet). To save fuel she turned OFF the big generator for 3 1/2 hours one day, so check if she'll be doing that while you're there. Our 30 amp service worked fine even in the unseasonably hot weather. We had full hook-ups including sewer and our Dish satellite worked fine shooting between the mountains. The wifi hot spot is in lodge and we never used it since it wasn't very convenient. Gravel roads and sites are well maintained. There are only a couple of sites with fire rings, but the community campfire was very nice. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

Destruction Bay Lodge and RV Park, Destruction Bay, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

If you have to stop here then be ready for a gravel parking lot with unlevel sites, 2 wheels were off the ground, and not much else. The 30 amp power worked fine but he didn't have the water running yet even though he said it would be. There is no sewer hookup, just a dump station. There are no trees so our Dish satellite worked fine, which was good since there is absolutely nothing else in the area. He does offer free Wifi. Destruction Bay is named that way because of the very high winds that blew everything down when they first built the highway. We were advised to pull in with the head of the rig pointing south to minimize the winds. They did die down some at night. We'll only stay here again for 1 night if we absolutely need to. We camped at Destruction Bay Lodge and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hi Country RV Park, Whitehorse, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Our site was very narrow (trees everywhere) with 30 amp, water and sewer. The wifi was limited to 30 minutes per day. Cable was horrible when we first hooked up, but we traded boxes with another unoccupied site and it was fine then. No satellite due to all of the trees. The RV wash was good and in use most of the day. My only real complaint is the tight roads and that most sites were too short and narrow for big rigs. The gravel roads at the entrance could use A LOT of work to fill in the potholes. The owner said he planned on filling some of them in, but that it does slow traffic down a bit. The airport is nearby but not too noisy as there are only a few flights a day. Also, the park is right on the Alaska Highway but the back lots are still nice and quiet. We'll be back on our way south from Alaska. We camped at Hi Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Shadow RV Park and Campground, Iskut, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice park in a beautiful setting. It's in an open meadow overlooking the upper end of a lake with mountains in the background. The walk down to the lake and path along the lake make for a nice hike. They only offer 30 amp, but that worked just fine. Unfortunately, no sewer. The gravel road into the campground is long (about 1/3 mile) but our 42' 5th wheel did just fine. The sites are gravel but nice and big with grass between. As others have stated, the grassy area is quite sloped so we had to move our picnic table onto the gravel, but again that wasn't a problem since the site was long enough. If you have a big rig we'd recommend staying away from pull-through site 5 as there is a large pole to avoid when pulling in. We have satellite and that worked fine in our site (and probably in all of the pull-throughs). They offer free wifi which worked fine most of the time. The owners live on-site and are upgrading their system to hopefully improve the service. This is a well maintained park. If you're looking for peace and quiet this is the place; we'll be back on our way south from Alaska. We camped at Mountain Shadow RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Baby Nugget RV Park, Watson Lake, Yukon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

For a campground with only 30 amp service and no sewer this wasn't a great place. The sewer dump station didn't have working water to flush the tanks. They offer cable but it is very limited so it's a good thing our satellite came in fairly well. A lot of people were using the RV wash, but the roads are dirt so as soon as they pulled out they were covered with dust again. We had to keep our windows closed even though it was very warm just to keep the dust out. The wi-fi was sporadic & so slow it was like using dial-up. We were told there are resident bears at the end of our row that stroll through the campground a couple of times a day. This is high desert and very dry so no fired are allowed. I think we'll try another campground on our way back through. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
