Mount Robson Provincial Park, Valemount, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Robson Meadows was one of our favorite campgrounds from six weeks of traveling from Montana to Alaska and back. The campground is very well maintained, the interior loop roads are wide and the sites are nicely spaced with lots of trees. The nature trail along the Fraser River was a very enjoyable hike. We would stay here again because the scenery is really stunning, especially if you get a good clear view of Mount Robson. The campground is convenient to the visitor center/store/cafe/gas station. Sometimes you can hear some road noise from the highway but we never heard anything at night. All that said, the people who run the park for BC need to to a much better job of collecting camping fees. I asked who to pay two different times and was told someone would come around and collect our money. But, nobody ever did although they stopped at the campsite across the road from us. We camped at Mount Robson Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Meziadin Provincial Park, Meziadin Junction, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

I seriously wonder how much money British Columbia loses because of the people running some of their provincial parks. We reserved a site for one night and paid for it online. We decided to stay an extra night but nobody ever came around, as we were told they would, to collect any money. So for us it was buy one get one free. It is a fairly nice park but some of the sites are very close together although there seems to be plenty of room to maneuver around the interior paved road. We had a site sort of by the lake and nobody every took the site next to us. Dump station at Meziadin Junction. This is the best place to stay if you plan to visit Stewart and Hyder. We camped at Meziadin Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Boya Lake Provincial Park, Good Hope Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Maybe the most beautiful setting for a provincial park anywhere. The sites are nicely spaced with both pull-through and back-in sites. The sites are pretty level and the interior road is wide for easy maneuvering. The sites along the lake are the best and fill up pretty fast. We got there early and got a very nice site by the lake. There's a trail that goes around the lake and we went for a hike on it. There are canoes and kayaks available for rent but there was never anyone around to take money for them so they would have been free. We camped at Boya Lake Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cottonwood RV Park, Destruction Bay, Yukon

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

We were excited to stay here. They spend more time telling you what you can't do than what you can do. The owner complained because he didn't like where the water inlet is on my trailer to fill the tank. The electrical hookup is at the front of the back-in spaces along the lake, just plain dumb. I have yet to see a trailer with the electrical hookup at the front. Even with the provided extension cord, by the time I got our trailer backed in so the truck was out of the way, I still couldn't plug in my power cord. I was able to get a longer extension cord from them. The real insult to everyone there is when the owners sit in their hot tub with the large "PRIVATE" signs on the fence around it. Wow. And it is mostly just a gravel parking lot, like so many other places along the Alaska Highway, however there are some quite nice sites at the far ends of the campground but they don't seem to put anyone in them. We won't stay here again. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Trail River Campground - Chugash National Forest, Moose Pass, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful campground. Interior roads are paved and it's easy to maneuver a larger rig. The sites are quite spacious and well separated from one another. The campground is a mile off the Seward Highway but sometimes traffic noise can be heard if you're outside. Even though it's 24 miles north of Seward my wife and I decided to stay here after seeing the wretched "parking lot" places in Seward. We camped at Trail River Campground - Chugash National Forest in a Fifth Wheel.

Chugach State Park: Eagle River Campground, Eagle River, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice campground. There are single and double spaces here. The single spaces were wide and roomy, but the double spaces looked very cramped. We had a roomy single space just above the river and the sound of river helped conceal the traffic noise from the Glenn Highway. After about 11pm, the traffic noise mostly disappeared. We camped at Chugach State Park: Eagle River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Moose River RV Park, Sterling, Alaska

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

This is really a shabby little place. Right next to the highway and traffic noise is constant. There is nobody there managing the place or taking care of it. One site had a broken water faucet and water was spraying everywhere, was like that at noon when we arrived and was still like that at 9am the next day when we left. Since nobody is paying any attention, just show up, take a space and be gone by 8am, nobody will even know and you get a free night. For $35 they should provide WiFi since cell phone service is nearly non-existent on the Kenai peninsula. We camped at Moose River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Trapper Creek Inn & RV Park, Trapper Creek, Alaska

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

This is a pretty nice commercial park, but try to avoid sites 11-18 as they are very close together and right next to the highway. We had site #8, a pull-through and it was quite nice, wide and decently level. There is some road noise but at night the highway isn't very busy. There's a covered pavillion sort of in the center where you can have a fire and BBQ. Wi-fi coverage is pretty pathetic which seems to be the norm at most Alaska campgrounds. The people who own it seem quite nice and you can get fuel and propane, do your laundry and there's also a deli. We camped at Trapper Creek Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sourdough Campground, Tok, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Our truck broke down about 12 miles outside Tok and we had to be towed into town along with our trailer. The tow truck dropped the trailer at Sourdough per our instructions and we spent five nights there waiting for a new fuel pump to arrive. We had a delightful time at the campground. The hosts are great. The sites are nicely laid out and separated by trees and bushes. The cafe serves breakfast and dinner(burgers, hot dogs, etc.) and it's all good. The nightly pancake toss is not to be missed. My wife and I would go out of our way to stay here again and we may on our way out of Alaska. We camped at Sourdough Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
