Centennial Park Campground, Anchorage, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This appears to be an older park. There are some holes in the paved roads but not near as many as we've encountered in AK. The road noise is really bad from the Glenn Highway which is nearby. It starts at about 5 AM and continues until bedtime. The electric sites are closest to the highway. The sites are all shaded and have been stabilized with gravel. There wasn't much traffic inside the park until later in the evening. Since it doesn't get dark till near 11 PM, many rv's come in late at night. We did see a police car ride through as well as one pass by two private security cars at the same time. There was quite a bit of foot traffic and an old Honda riding around late at night that had no tail lights. Many of the dry camping sites are closed due to bear activity in the area. We camped at Centennial Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Portage Valley Cabins & RV Park, Girdwood, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Nice little campround that sits back from the road which has the usual AK potholes. It is very quiet. We were able to text using a VZ phone but could not get on the internet using the phones. Weren't able to get a radio station. Didn't even try for OTA tv. Sites are very close together. We had trouble finding the place as my GPS doesn't know Portage. No cell service on that stretch of the highway to use the VZ phone GPS. We camped at Portage Valley Cabins & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Portage Glacier is nearby but the weather wasn't conducive for taking the boat tour. We did see some icebergs in the lake. We did take the tunnel ride and walked around Whittier. What a weird little town. I can't see why anyone would want to live there.

King Salmon Motel and RV Park, Soldotna, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

There is nothing special about this park which is on a busy street on the way to Kenai. The hookups all worked well and the sites are level. There are some pot holes and areas in the campground that hold water when it rains which it seems to do often. It is pretty quiet except for an a/c unit that runs all of the time in the lot behind the campground. We camped at King Salmon Motel and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and Soldatna Historical Society & Museum. There is a Fred Meyers and Petco as well as most other stores here. There is a large thrift store with good prices call Bishop's Attic. Racing at the Twin Cities Raceway in Kenai. The big attraction in July is salmon fishing so the roads are extremely crowded and busy. It is hard to make a left turn against traffic.

Centennial Park, Soldotna, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We didn't actually stay here as we are staying at another c/g right in town. We went in to have a look in the tow car. The road is nothing but pot holes. I am so glad we decided to stay in another campground. It is very busy because this is the Salmon fishing season in Soldatna. The roads are very busy in July.

The sites are a mix of some in the trees and some level pull thrus which for the most part were empty. They were long and wide enough. We really didn't ride around the whole c/g as the roads were just too bad for me. The campground itself looked clean. There was one section that was full of tents and easy ups. We camped at Centennial Park in a Motorhome.

Seward Waterfront Park, Seward, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

It rained both days we were there and at times it was so foggy you couldn't see the water directly in front of us. Seems like a common problem in AK that the parking lots are full of holes. Auomated pay station. We camped at Seward Waterfront Park in a Motorhome.

Wolf Creek, Whitehorse, Yukon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $9.00
Overall Rating:

Dry camping under the trees. A few pot holes but not bad. No road noise even though it is right off the Alaskan Highway maybe 9 miles south of Whitehorse. No OTA TV but good cell service. It was full when we were there. Best bet is to arrive early in the day. We camped at Wolf Creek in a Motorhome.

Carcross Grocery & RV Park (formerly Montana Services & RV Park), Carcross, Yukon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed 2 nights. Got a Good Sam Discount and with the exchange rate it was pretty reasonable. Very quiet at night. Not much manicuring of sites. Trash can was full. There are picnic tables at every site now. The laundromat is closed on Sunday but the person working let my girlfriend wash 1 load as that was all the water in the tank allowed. Laundromat normally closed on Sunday. Very long fairly level fhu site. Some pot holes in the parking lot. We camped at Carcross Grocery & RV Park (formerly Montana Services & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

We took the 65 mile drive to Skagway to catch the Alaska Fjordlines fast ferry to Haines and on to Juneau. Canadian customs doesn't open till 8 AM so you can barely get to the dock in Skagway at 7:45 Alaska time. Highly recommend the ferry ride as they provided a muffin and apple for a morning snack and a chowder and a piece of bread and cookie for dinner on the way back. We saw waterfalls, glaciers, whales, an otter, harbor seals, bald eagles and more wildlife.

Junction 37 Services RV Park, Watson Lake, Yukon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

As the previous reviewer stated most of the buildings on the huge property are closed. The park is very quiet. The sites are wooded and the mosquitos and bugs are ferocious. The picnic tables need work. No cell service. Heading toward Watson lake about 3 or 4 miles you will get cell service and then again in Watson Lake. The parking lot getting to the rv park has some pot holes. Reasonably priced gas is on the property. We camped at Junction 37 Services RV Park in a Motorhome.

Watson Lake (a town of 800 people) has some services. The welcome center behind the Sign Post Forest (over 82,000 signs and license plates mounted on trees and poles) has a movie about the building of the Alaskan Highway and lots of information. Across the street is the Northern Lights Centre that has a Sci Dome 360 theater with several showings daily.

Meziadin Provincial Park, Meziadin Junction, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Really nice manicured CG with a host on site. I found a wide, long site on the 2nd level. No bugs that I noticed. My girlfiend had an encounter with a bear in the brush beside the road. It was making a bunch of noise and then stuck it's head up thru the bushes. Sites on the water were reservable. No cell service. We camped at Meziadin Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Most everyone goes to Hyder, AK, (about 40 miles). The salmon were not running yet so no bears to be seen at Fish Creek. We did see a bear on the way down and on the way back walking along side the road. In my opinion driving the 14 miles to Salmon Glacier was not worth it as at least half of the way there the gravel road was full of pot holes. There is a glacier to be seen from Hwy 37A about half way to Hyder.

Dease Lake Lions Tanzilla River Campground, Dease Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

12 ft wide 1 lane bridge entering looks a lot narrower in a big m/h. Several sites for big rigs. We stayed at the first one which was 15. New road is up high so you really don't hear the little bit of traffic. Wifi in town available at the college. Very expensive fuel in town. No radio, TV or cell service. Near the river which was roaring. Some mosquitoes. We camped at Dease Lake Lions Tanzilla River Campground in a Motorhome.

Robert's Roost RV Park, Quesnel, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We were fortunate to have a site with a view of the lake. The pull thru we were in was plenty long and pretty wide also. Some of the sites in the woods shared a pedistal and the slides almost touched.. The water pressure went from fair to none so you better have water in your tank. I thought it was a temporary problem but see that it was mentioned years ago. The sites and roads are all rock about 1" in diameter. It was very quiet without any road noise or trains. We camped at Robert's Roost RV Park in a Motorhome.

Canadian Tire is on the way to town. There is a casino in town that has about 200 slot machines. Also several thrift stores in town.

Very wooded site off the road with minimal road noise. Heard a train or two go by. Nice wide wooded site. The downfall was the mosquitoes were so bad it made hooking up the car without getting bit a bunch of times a chore. There is a really nice lake with a picnic area across the road from the park. We camped at Lac La Hache Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails - La Conner, La Conner, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The park is about 12 miles off of I-5. It does have views of the bay from near the pool, laundry and store which was the only place we could get Verizon cell service. Were only able to get a few channels OTA which pixelated and most of the time unwatchable. The site was a back in and heavily shaded. Some of the campers have more than the allotted number of vehicles so there are tight squeezes getting down some of the roads. We camped at Thousand Trails - La Conner in a Motorhome.

Really nice dry camping spot off the highway enough so the road noise isn't too bad. Parked alongside the road near a tent site which was to our right so we didn't have to unhook. The park was nearly empty the day after Canada Day. View of the canyon walls are pretty spectacular. We camped at Skihist Provincial Park in a Motorhome.
