Date of Stay:

A nice state rec area campground and right on the river. Vault toilets were clean, sites were well-kept, price was all right. The Tok River is very high this spring. Some of the picnic areas and tent camping areas had water in them, river should go down soon. Highway noise is minimal if you are on the river side of the campground and traffic isn't too bad yet. We'd recommend for an overnight.

Date of Stay:

Another great Yukon territorial campground, many sites right on the Yukon River, appropriately clean vault toilets, free firewood, great price. The plus here is that you don't have to wait in line for the ferry in the morning if you are headed west over the Top of the World Highway because you're already on the west side of the Yukon. I'd recommend for an overnight and an early start going west.

This is a good park for what you get. Bathrooms/showers are very clean, buildings are well-kept, services work, nice to have cable when you're up here in this hinterland. We felt it was a little pricey for being a "parking lot", albeit well organized and presented as well as possible for what they have, but that comes with the territory in a tourist town in the Yukon. Neighborhood houses had some pretty loud guests one night ... I think alcohol was involved. For doing Dawson, it is about as good as you can get. The other parks in town appear to be pretty much the same caliber.

Another great territorial campground. Yukon knows how to do it. Great site, on the water, free firewood, clean vault toilets and the price is great. We have come to love the provincial / territorial campgrounds in Canada. As far as we are concerned, they have an upper-hand to government campgrounds in the US. I think I will call my legislators about this. We recommend any Yukon Territorial park. This one is no exception.

This is a great RV park, adequately spaced sites and some of the cleanest/best restrooms/showers you will find out there. The only drawback for us was the dirt/gravel roads which creates some dust when the big rigs come through. We had a black bear visitation on one of our nights here. It happens with some regularity, I guess, and added some excitement of the evening. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We'd recommend this RV park to anyone.

This is a great provincial park with a very nice campground. No services, as is the case with all BC Campgrounds, but you can't beat the setting. Hot springs were wonderful to experience. We did in the evening and again in the morning before we left. Campground is very well kept and clean. If you don't mind not having E/W/S, this is a must stop on your trip up the Alaska Highway.

Date of Stay:

An appropriate park for an overnight along the way. We stayed two nights because of a snowstorm in the mountains for our next leg of the journey. Staff was friendly; facilities were somewhat questionable. Toilets/laundry could use some upgrading, and heat; toilet building was cold. A little pricey for what you get, but that's the story along the Alaska Highway.

Date of Stay:

Breathtaking view from the campsite overlooking Tunnel Mountain and the Bow River Valley. Had elk, mule deer and Columbian Ground Squirrels in and coming through the campground. It was not real busy, so very quiet and comtemplative. Facilities are clean, well-kept. The staff at the registration station were very friendly and helpful. We recommend highly. Thanks, Banff National Park, for your great facility. It's great to be in Canada, eh?

Date of Stay:

This is by far the nicest KOA we have ever stayed in. Fairly new, extremely clean. Staff feels like family. We would highly recommend this campground to anyone.

Date of Stay:

Great setting...in the forest...plenty of shade and space. Feels like camping. No services in the loop we were assigned to, which was fine for the night. Price a little high in these Nat'l Parks, but worth it as you support their park system. Would recommend.

Date of Stay:

It's a parking lot for the Icefields Centre. No services. It was offered for free tonight. I guess because it appears the snowplow hit the registration deposit station so you couldn't leave any money if you tried. In a pinch it works. The view is out of this world, but you have to work hard to find a location flat enough in this slanted paved parking lot to keep from rolling out of bed. Would not recommend unless you really needed a place to park for the night.

Date of Stay:

This feels like camping ... a nice oasis of a park in the middle of the semi-arid plains of southern Alberta. It is very quiet ... early in the season ... nice shaded campsites with plenty of space. Facilities clean and well kept. We would recommend.

Date of Stay:

This is a well maintained, clean parking lot next to a convenience store/ motel, with trees and paved sites. For our purpose (waiting a couple of days for parts and repairs), it was just fine ... but not true "camping" ... merely parking in a decent facility. Road noise to the south ... railroad yard to the north ... bearable. For a quick stop overnight without a desire for a wonderful view from the campsite, this would be fine. Facilities were very clean and private.

Date of Stay:

Another great Army Corps of Engineers Dam Campsite. It was a weekend early in the season, so it was not crowded. Lots of families enjoying the weekend. It was quiet enough to hear the birds and the hum of the power plant a mile away. Facilities were clean and well kept as typical. With senior pass, the rate is great. We would recommend to anyone.

Date of Stay:

Wonderful park setting next to the Little Missouri River (not much water right now). Bison walking through our campsite at wake-up time (we kept our distance when out of the camper). Facilities were well maintained and clean. It is off season and with senior pass it cost us $2.50 for the night. Wish we could say that every night. Recommend!
