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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a very picturesque and quiet campground. Set between 2 mountain ranges and near the river with lots of trees and natural vegetation. There is a path to the river that includes a bridge across a small stream...very quaint The gravel roads & sites are very well maintained. We couldn't get satellite (no surprise) but the free cable was good and included an online guide so you actually knew what was on. Each site has a picnic table but the fire rings were in the dry camping areas. We shared a fire with other campers 2 of our 4 nights and met some very interesting people. We didn't use them but there are pay showers and a laundry. This is a nice, quiet place that we'll come to again on our way back from Alaska.

We were pleasantly pleased at how nice this campground is. There are gravel roads that have been oiled and very well maintained. The sites are all grass and about twice the side of most campgrounds...very spacious. The pit toilets are very clean and don't smell at all. Showers were clean and very nice. Other than the fact that we came here on Victoria Day weekend it is a quiet park. Very open so we had good satellite. The Wifi was very good. This is a riverside campground and is excellent for families. Not only are there fire pits but they also supply free firewood. Even though we had paid in advance they didn't have our site reserved. It ended up not being an issue, but we'll check a few days in advance next time. We'll definitely stay here again.

This is a basic campground with an awesome view of Fraser Lake. We managed to get a 30 amp site, but most are 15 amp. Each site has a pine tree, fire ring and table but no sewer. The sites are all grass but they had mowed and it was quite nice. There is also a large grassy area for the kids to play in. A short walk down to the lake, across the railroad tracks, leads to a dock for fishing. We managed to get satellite here. All afternoon and evening there was a lot of traffic in the highway which is right next to the campsites. The trains also ran several times on the tracks which actually run through the property below the sites toward the lake We used ear plugs and didn't have any problem sleeping. We would stay here again for 1 night on the way elsewhere.

This is an eclectic park and the owner lives on-site. Her hospitality is wonderful and she is quite interesting to talk to about her mining in the area. The sites are gravel, rather big with fire ring and table. They are fairly private as she has put fencing in places, along with the trees, to give each site seclusion. There is no satellite or Wifi or Verizon phone service, but that didn't really surprise us as you're in the middle of the mountains. The 30 amp power worked fine. The road noise wasn't an issue at all. Barkerville is only minutes away.

This is a very well maintained campground right next to the Stampede Arena. We had a horse arena next to us and they were doing dressage during the evening. It is right next to the highway so if you want total quiet this is probably not the place, but after dark it quieted down. The place is fairly plain but you have a nice view of the mountain. There are gravel roads & sites (maintained), grass between with a nice table. It is totally open to the sky so we had good satellite. Their wifi was good. We will stay here again on our way back south.

This is an older park that needs some maintenance. The new owners are trying, but there's a lot more to do. The sites are tiered up a gradual hill with lots of tall old growth trees. We didn't have satellite because of the trees. This is not a destination campground, but a good stop for a night on the way. There were gravel roads, dirt sites, fire ring and table.

We stayed here to visit Vancouver for a couple of days, There are paved roads with gravel sites and picnic tables. Lots of very tall trees so no satellite in our site...or most of the others I'm sure. Most of the sites are permanent residents so limited selection. Someone was in our assigned site when we showed up so they moved us twice before we finally settled in on a site we could use. Clean and well maintained but not very organized. The heated pool wasn't open yet, so very pricey for what they actually offered. We would only stay here if we couldn't find anything else.

This is a typical 1000 Trails campground...older and not well maintained. The sites are laid out with 4 sites sharing 1 utility post. Since verything is back-in, 2 of the sites have to route their utilities around to the front of their rig...not convenient. Also, only 1 of the 4 can have 50 amp so very limited since the permanent residents use the only 50 amp. The roads and sites are gravel; not well maintained with a lot of holes. Each site has grass in front but no landscaping. The campground is surrounded by very tall trees and a lot of big trees in the sites, so very limited satellite if at all but we did get it. Wifi only at office. The one good thing is it is very quiet.
