We stayed 3 days while we visited Palmer, the Independence Mine, Etlukna and Thunderbird Falls. The park was pretty basic. There were pull-thrus and back-ins. Some pull-thrus might not have had a sewer. The hook-ups were fine, the site was relatively level, we had a picnic table. It was shady and it was convenient to all that we wanted to do in the area. It was a mix of monthlies and transients. Most of the sites were pretty close.

We stayed here while visiting Kennecott mine and McCarthy. It is a no frills campground but it has what you need: lots of room to navigate, an electric hook-up, level spot and space to park. There was a dump out front and they also sold propane. We also had a picnic table. There is a small store which has convenience items if you forgot anything. Verizon is ok but there are no over-the-air television stations. But, truth to tell, we were too busy visiting the National Park visitor center and the Kennecott mine for time to watch TV.

We stayed her for 6 days and enjoyed visiting Valdez. This park is basically a gravel parking lot but is well maintained, has flowers about and is very clean. They will escort you to your site and help direct you in. The owner lives right here so is attentive to the park. The sites are level and the hook-ups are easy to use but the sites are very close. The campground is within walking distance to the small boat harbor, the Safeway for shopping, the 2 museums in town and just about everything else. We would definitely stay here again.

We arrived on a rainy day after having driven the Top of the World Highway in the rain. We were tired, wet, dirty and hungry. There are no pull-thrus but the clerk gave us a site that we could pull thru to the font, leave our car attached, eat dinner and then go to the RV and car wash. Very nice and we appreciated the courtesy. We ate and then circled to use the RV and car wash. It was at least 1" deep in mud because of all the use it had had that day. The campground has lots of potholes and ruts to drive around. The sites are back-in, quite close and back to back. They are level, the hook-ups are good but have no picnic tables or fire pits. The campground could use a lot of tender, loving care but it was ok. We would use it again if we were in the area.

This park is convenient to the sign forest, the grocery store, the visitor center with its museum and a walking trail partially around the lake. We had pull-thru site and were able to walk to all of these and not unhook our Jeep. The sites are very close, have no picnic table and no fire pit. The sites are dirt but level and the hook-ups work fine.

What a pleasant surprise! Very nice small campground on a lake with a gas station, restaurant and cabins. We had a cool site right on the lake and our second morning we had a rainbow reflection in the lake. We we pulled in so that we could face the lake and used just the electric hook-up. Level site with a picnic table. We would definitely stay here again. There are pull-thru sites available but they are not on the lake.

Because I get most of the parks we stay at from this website, I seldom have a bad campground. However, I did this time. Unfortunately, Tubby's was flooded out this summer and is not really a functioning campground now. Some of the sites are 'X'ed out as not usable. However we were given a 'usable site and only found out what the problem was when we tried to dump. Our dump did not work and we had to find our another site with a usable one. When we found it, we told another couple so they could use it also since theirs did not work either. Since the park in down in a valley, the wi-fi is not good and the TV reception is not either. Some sites and low hanging trees, too low for a big rig to park under. We would suggest that you find another campground until Tubby's is fixed.

The price above reflects their stay for 8, pay for 7 nights deal. We had a back-in spot which was fine to get into though the sites were close. Parking our Jeep was a bit tight when our neighbors had their vehicles at their sites also. The hook-ups were fine and easy to use. The site was level and had a picnic table provided. The wi-fi was as good as many other parks - sometimes it worked, sometimes, not. The campground was convenient to shopping and to sites in Anchorage. We would stay again if in Anchorage.

Excellent campground and the owner works hard to keep it that way. The sites are level, large and ours was easy to get into. The hook-ups are good and well positioned for a motor home - in the middle. The wi-fi is some of the best that we have encountered in an RV park. There is a picnic table at each site and lots of vegetation around to make it seem park like. It's a short walk to the Visitor Center and town. There is shopping nearby for groceries, etc. We arrived at 11:00 on July 4th and were told about a barbecue at 2:00. What a fun time that was. The owner provided the hot dogs and hamburgs, the buns and the condiments. We all brought a dish - either hot or cold. Lots of fun and totally unexpected. I've looked at some of the other parks in town and this certainly looks the best.

Nice park. Easy to maneuver through the rows. We had a back-in site with room for our Jeep beside it. Stone and dirt sites. There are trees and bushes which makes it nice. Ours was level and easy to get into. Friendly staff. About 10 miles from the Denali entrance but away from the busy atmosphere around the little town there.

Our price reflects a no-hook-up site. We like this campground. The sites were level but, since out site was probably for a tent, it was a bit narrow for our 3-slide 35' RV. We had to pick and choose the right site for our RV. The campground host also helped us choose a site away for others so we could use our generator for a bit. However, that said, it was a good site, well off the road and quiet. No cable, no TV but then we weren't interested in those. There is a central patio with bug zappers, picnic tables and barbecue pits. Very nice for anyone to use. We enjoyed the nearness to Talkeetna where we went for one day.

Our price was for an electric site only. No sewer. I read the previous reviews from quite a long time ago and was a bit worried about staying here. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Our back-in site was mostly level and wide enough for our tow vehicle. There was lots of grass. There are picnic tables and fire pits but not for every site so sharing is the practice. There were 4 pull-through sites also. There is a small store, an ATM out front, laundry and showers available. The interior roads were a bit tight but our 35' RV was fine since we had unhooked our Jeep in their parking lot but larger rigs might have a little trouble. It is about a mile into the small town of Hope where there is a marvelous smaller museum.

We really enjoyed this campground. The roads and sites were paved, the sites were well-spaced, large and furnished with a picnic table and fire pit. The campground host was friendly and helpful. We also liked the Blue Ice Trail which extends from the Begich-Boggs Visitor Center to Moose ? (can't remember the name.) Much of the trail is a raised walkway. From the VC, you can hike to the Byron Glacier or take the boat to the Portage Glacier. This campground is also well situated to visit Girdwood with the Bake Shop restaurant, the Winner Trail and the hand tram. On the other side is a cool tunnel and visit to Whittier with the Horsetail Falls Trail. This campground is a very nice campground but is also well sited for great touring in the area.

     

Tok RV Village

We stayed one night on our trip to Fairbanks and will stay one night on our way back to the states. The sites were big, treed with grass and level. The hook-ups were easy and the maneuvering through the campground was easy. We certainly appreciated the vehicle wash. We kept the Jeep hooked up to the RV and washed them both. A 35' RV and Jeep for $18.50.

Nice campground for a visit to Whitehorse. We had a pull-thru site which was just long enough. The sites are close together but there are bushes and trees between them so you don't feel cramped. The site was level, had good hook-ups and was easy to get into and out of. The roads are a bit narrow and when people park in them, they are a even narrower. There is a vehicle wash but there are sand roads both south and north along the Alaska Hwy so I'd wash later - in Tok or Watson Lake. We would stay here again.
