Alaskan Stove Campground We stopped in Tok for a few days and wanted to ride up to chicken and Dawson, in which the road is too windy to get our RV up the hills. We found this little gem right in town just before the airport called Alaskan Stove Campground, $26 per night with 30 am power. You can fill your water tank and they do have a dump station for both water and sewer Sites c1 to c4 and B4 are large pull throughs. We have a 43 foot RV, not a problem, we are in site c1. When we stopped in, the office was closed, pick a site and leave your money. Each site has a custom made stove, in which you can burn wood or coal and cook on. They also have new laundry machines honor system $6 for a wash and a dry, and they have baths with showers.

If you , are traveling thru, rt 1 to Tok Alaska a great stop is Buckshot Betty's restaurant. Yes it a large dirt lot, if you eat in the restaurant and we did for both dinner and breakfast Buckshot Betty lets you dry camp there. Perhaps even if you don't eat there also, but the food was very good so why not If you feel the need for full service there is a campground next door, next to the police station on morning walk I did go thru thru the campground, water and electric with a dump station, I did notice there was secured wifi FYI the speed limits thru town are strictly enforced !! his cop has the nothing much to do except stop travelers.

Whitehorse, Yukon This campground was a breeze to drive into. Once we we were checked in and assigned our site we found the site to be very close to our neighbors, we were face to face , side to side,with them! when you step out of your camper, you find yourself nearly on there site in the the pull thru's go in opposite directions I mean you have to share the outdoor space. The total space was approx 15 feet from his door to ours, that means your site, your space is about 7 feet out your door!!! And some folks spread out even beyond there site. grabbing every foot of there's and a couple of yours! You know the type!! We had very good neighbors, we sat out late, lite a fire, cooked hot dogs and drank some beers ,had to put the fire ring in front of the motor home, in the road way but still on our site.What a nightmare it would be if you did not like your neighbors. The 30 amp power was good at 118 volts, water was good. Its quite and had good wifi They do have a hi pressure wash down for RV and cars 2 lunnies for 6 minutes The price I list is in US dollars $32 per night which included a 10% good Sam discount I would stay here again for a couple of days. 2 /12 hour drive to Skagway Alaska and a beautiful trip, well worth taking if you have the time, remember your passports!!!!

We stopped here on our journey to Alaska. It was pouring rain and had been for about 4 days, so the sites were very wet, but not sink in wet, just wet. It did have large enough sites to pull thru without disconnecting our tow. Like much of Canada it only has 30 amp power, but it did have water and sewer and a large fairly new laundry. What I especially like about this campground was the bar and the restaurant. After a long day driving it was a real nice stop. It was rustic the people very friendly and the food was excellent, much more than you would expect at a campground, I had the Saturday special which was a steak, cooked perfectly. It also has wifi which was a nice treat, since we have not been online for days , its amazing how much you can miss the Internet !!

This park is at a best western hotel and is right off the highway, but far enough from the road and the trains to be fairly quite, the rate reflects a passport America rate. the staff was friendly, the site was easy to get in and out of without unhooking, power water and sewer were all good. the hotel lets you have the breakfast for an addition $6 which was very fair. I would definitely stay here again if we are passing thru

Date of Stay:

We stayed for 6 nights: Nov 1 ( off season) and price was 33 per night, plus tax for water and 30 amp. We are in site 507 pull thru. Satellite reception will work on the front of RV and perhaps to the center, but not the rear. This a small park, gravel sites with small picnic table pads, our site is very small as are most of the pull thru's and a kin to a "parking lot." We are very close to our neighbors, too close for my liking. We just barely have room for the 43' RV and the car. Both extended out into the roadway front and rear. Our awnings, if out may touch the neighbor's RV. I must add that the sites along the outer areas of the park are larger sites. We are here to visit Nashville, so for this reason, and the price, it is very good. The park has a shuttle service that comes, and the cost is 10 bucks RT from here to town. The water pressure is low and the electric is weak at times, as low as 109 volts. The wifi is so-so. We use our own air card. There is a lot of highway noise also. The people here are friendly and accommodating. We have been to this park before and will return. The price is much better than the others, but the park itself is nothing special.

Date of Stay:

We stayed at their park for 5 nights, the last weekend of October was considered a holiday and the fee was 44 per night for W/S/E 50 amp, the price dropped to 33 weekdays , the site was spacious for our 43 foot RV, all sites are paved, the park was very quite and peaceful, They have approximately 5 hiking trails ranging from one to approx 2 1/2 miles, its a very nice park to walk, hike or bike, have a campfire, I believe most site are electric only, with water spickets along the road ways, dump stations on the way out of the park, we were able to get our satellite and I suspect most sites can ???but certainly not all, perhaps 60% can. They shut off the water and close most of the park Nov 3 but they are open all year.

This is a real nice park, some areas have sewer hook ups, area 4 does not. The top area that we are in, is area 4. Paved roads but sites are 100% grass. For a state park the place is beautiful and we like it a lot: plenty of spacing, lots of vegetation and very private sites. We have a large RV and not all the sites can fit us, but there are plenty that can. The problem is: you have to be somewhat familiar with the park to know. We are getting our satellite, but again not all the sites will, perhaps 1/2. There is no honey wagon services, so you have to watch you water usage. The rest rooms are not filthy, well maybe the showers, but they are very old and somewhat unkept. The showers are coin op, not something I want to step into at all. The bath houses need to be totally overhauled for sure, they are old and very tired.

The PA discount is what drew us to this park along with the very good reviews. PA rate is $21.65, but they are dropping PA after December 2015, reg. rate is $43.29 or $46.62 for a pull thru.they do offer good Sam discount Reviews for the park are very good but, I'm not sure what all the hype is about! , spacing is very close approx 22' wide , sites are lined up like soldiers, the place reminds me of a mobile home park. All sites are concrete with patio. all roads are concrete, It does have well maintained 2 foot grass strips between sites. There is plenty of room behind your camper, with a fire ring. WifFi is a very slow, we could not even get on line and measured usage. 750 mb for 48 hours!! Our biggest complaint is the road noise starting at 6 am, the park is large but if you are a short term and do not want to spring for a pull-thru, you will be placed in an area close to the road, most of the park, 90% seems to be seasonal folks, they get all of the sites in the back of the park which I am sure are quite. The pull thru sites are located in the rear of the park, therefor would be quite. There is a pool but it is not heated, no hot tub, a nice game room here for the kids, but not much else. I am not impressed with the park and would not be happy paying 50 bucks a night. If you are passing thru and need a place for a night, its safe, and close to the highway rt 10. If you are having a family get together and can get a few sites next to the road and can put up with the traffic noise, that may work for you.

The rate is $16 per night at the PA discounted price, but the park is worth all of the $34 per night full price. We contacted the park on the way down I-10 and made a reservation. They asked us to call once we got off the highway, we did and they met us at the gate with a golf cart and promptly escorted us to our site, we set up and then went to the office to check in. A very nice lady checked us in and they did want to see our PA card. Plenty of space for big rigs and very easy in and out. At least 40' x 100' pull thru sites. The campground itself is wide open, level grass sites a few with concrete pads, with gravel roads, all lined up I get the sat dish signal so I am happy, the power and services are all very good. This park is full of snow birds and does not have full timers except for the winter. The sites are spacious. For a lot of folks this is a winter destination, for ourselves it a very good 2 days stop.

We arrived 11/18/15 , $70 PN for a" back in" inc W&S&E 50 amp, inc tax of 11 1/2% The lady's took our reservation over the phone, and when we arrived a few hours later we were pleasantly greeted. the roads are all paved and clean, we drove to our site and my eyes got very wide! small, very small and very tight. Our tires just barley fit on the 30 year old slab, we got the RV in perfect only to find out our slide would hit a tree, closed it up and moved it over a foot so one side of tires is 1/2 off the slab. We are so close to the nice neighbors that we can here them talking in their RV., our picnic table is so close that we cannot open the doors to basement compartments and it is 1/2 way under one of our slide outs. A lot of the middle back in sites and others are much larger than ours also. This was site 39 I requested a site that would get satellite and was told some do and others do not. 75% of sites in this park would get satellite but NOT the ones we are in. And probably not a lot of them near the main office building. For sure, sites 38 to 56 will not get sat service as there is a wall of trees in the rear. We are in site 39. The WiFi is good most of the time, the cable TV is OK. We asked to be moved and requested available sites, we took site 102 still a back in, what a difference! We get our sat TV, the slab and spacing is much larger and we are much happier. The park is very well laid out and maintained, lots of nice snowbirds staying for the winter, no trailer trash here! Nicely lit at night, has two pools and an exercise room, basketball hoop, fenced in dog area. The newer premium sites are much larger and very nice in an open area around a man made lake. Roads and sites in the premium area are all brick pavers and very attractive. Oh ya one more thing, this park is very expensive for a night or a week, however the monthly rates are extremely reasonable for what you get. Go figure? Check it out on their web site.

The rate we paid was a weekly rate $270 per week inc taxes, equals $38 P/N for W & S and 50 A elect. Nov, 14th,2015 they do offer discounts for AAA, Goodsam and FMCA, they do not offer any discounts for the weekly rates. This is not a vacation destination park, ( no pools, hot tubs, tennis courts or playgrounds) They have WI Fi however it is extremely slow at times, but a nice place to stay while visiting Saint Augustine, 6 miles down the road from the campground. the park is not overrun with full timers living here. We are happy here at this campground, we were pleasantly greeted upon arriving, I requested to have a site with satellite service and was given one. perhaps 1/4 of the sites will be able to receive it so you may want to call ahead as far as you can The campground is kind of old and a bit run down but quiet; they have two sections. if "quiet" is important you may want to request a site in the rear of the campground. away from rt 207. Our site and many others are kind of in a field with a little gravel and grass sites with rag grass. It has not been raining here for a week so everything is fine, I can imagine that if it rains heavy it may get wet and sloppy at the sites. most sites if not all will fit large motorhome, ours is 43 feet and is not a problem.

The rate we paid was with the Passport America discount and included full 50-amp hookups. In the book the rated stated for PA is $17 but when you read the print or get there, it's kind of like KOAs (keep on adding): $4 for electric, $3 or $4 for sewer, add on for 50 amps, plus tax, and it all comes to $32 bucks a night! They did accept credit cards. And it's still a good deal being so close to the city in all. We are staying for two nights, visiting Charleston and for this it is a good place. It's been raining heavy, I mean really heavy for about 4 days, and the place is real muddy with lots standing water. NOT GOOD Anyway, the camp ground is close to Charleston, out of the way by about 10 miles, big rig friendly, kind of quiet except for an occasional train, which is not real close. Our site is fine, except for the large standing pools of water, it's pull-through and we do have satellite service. More than 1/2 the park are full timers, but not trailer trashy type full timers, working men and woman in the area, whom probably own homes elsewhere or at least most would seem to. WiFi was free and good. Laundry room is fine. Small well kept pool is also here. Bathrooms are a bit dated, we use our own anyway. We are in a 43 foot RV.

Ok what can you say for 16 bucks a night! In Washington DC,the park is part of our National Park system, It located just about 12 miles out of Dc and about 3 miles from the train station, the camping is dry camping only, the park is very large as in perhaps 100 acres, it is secluded right in the middle of a metropolitan area. be warned, it is dry camping only, no hook ups. Generators are allowed between 6 am to 10 PM, but who starts a Gen set at 6 am? , we ran ours from 8 to 9 am and from 7 to 9 PM, most did not run them that long, we have a 43 foot motor home, there are a few sites we could get into but mostly not, most areas are heavily wooded so no satellite service. the park was not busy so we found a site #41, the RV barely fit but the car did not, we were able to park it in another site but would not be able to if it was busy, perhaps it would have been a good walk to get car.

Date of Stay:

We stopped here just for an overnight. Many many full timers and trailers as in house trailers, and regular trailers with folks living in them. It's behind a run down no tell motel. We did not have any trouble, but the place is old and tired. The 50 amp power was good, the site was a little unlevel. The very best part about this place, aside from the PA discount, is that it is very easy on and off rt 95 less than a 1/4 mile away.
