We enjoyed this campground even though it was simply a stop on the road. Owner was very friendly. Sites were generous and well vegetated perhaps with too many thorny roses. Hookups worked well. Sites could have been more level, but ours was long enough that we could find a place where the front and back were even. The highway was close, but there were enough trees, shrubs, and flowers to hide it quite well. Wi-Fi worked well. We would stay there again.

What a nice campground. Impeccably maintained. Pull through sites had lush grass, and the back-in sites were under the trees - very nice on warm September days. Beautiful dahlias greeting us as we drove in, although they were put to bed for the winter before we left. Owner was very nice, very friendly. Sites were level; hookups very good; Wi-Fi worked well; restrooms and laundry were very clean. Could not ask for more. We would go out of our way to stay here again.

Orderly. Everything in its proper place. Well maintained. Rules to keep everything neat and fastidious. I have never seen a campground so organized. All the sites are in even rows, evenly spaced, with hookups all in the proper place (for a standard class A). WiFi efficient and worked well. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Sites were a little close together (although they were adequate and all were perfectly parallel). And they could have been a tad more level. If you like a place with a few quirks, this isn't it. But it is a nice change from the more frequent weird and quirky campgrounds in Alaska and parts of Canada. We would stay there again (unless we were feeling weird).

A great government campground with many sites, including ours, right on a lovely lake. There was not as much vegetation between sites right on the lake, but with that view, it did not matter. No hookups except that it had Wi-Fi that worked fairly well, at $5 for the password, meaning both of our computers and both of two nights all for that price. One of the two sections was closed because of a grizzly bear roaming around, and that made the other section more crowded. Electrical hookups in a number of the lakefront sites are all installed and ready to go but they do not yet have a connection to the grid outside the park. Although it is a convenient place to take off to Stewart and Hyder, it is a worthy campground on its own. We would definitely stay there again

The sites were fairly typical in being somewhat close, but since we were the only ones there our first night, and only two other rigs joined us the second night, it felt very spacious. Our site was next to a spring and there was very attractive fall color vegetation surrounding the campground. Water and electricity were good; we used their dump station on the way out. Wi-Fi was good. This was a good place to stay while we explored Telegraph Creek and its great Canyon. We would stay there again.

A very convenient and pleasant campground as we came from Whitehorse and did not want to go into Watson Lake because we were taking the Cassiar Highway. Well wooded, level sites. We had a pull-through. Free firewood as occurs in many Yukon government campgrounds. No hookups, of course. We would stay there again.

Dezadeash Lake Campground is really about 50 km from Haines Junction. It was a very nice campground with no hookups or frills, although it did have free firewood. Our site was right on the lake. It was very windy, but there were low trees that mostly blocked it at the site. We stayed there two nights while driving to Haines to pick up mail in between. But we also explored several trails and lakes in the Kluane National Park; this campground was well situated for that. We liked this campground well enough to stay there again, but there are other appealing Yukon government campgrounds in the area that are also enticing.

We had not planned on staying in Haines Junction until we developed a tow bar problem. The Kluane RV Kampground was the only one in town that was operating in early September so we stayed there. It was pretty good with decent hookups and Wi-Fi available at our site next to the office. Staff was friendly. It was not much more than a parking lot, but the sites were adequate and level enough. If we needed to stay in Haines Junction again, we would probably stay there.

This was a nice place with good sites, lots of trees, and friendly people. Hookups were good, site was level, Wi-Fi worked decently. The water was particularly tasty. The office has a number of wildlife mounts, skins, and other museum-like stuff, along with the old vehicles, antlers, and other interesting things in the yard mentioned previously. We would likely stay there again.

I cannot add much to previous reviews except that the staff was quite friendly and helpful. The "parking lot" aspect was no problem because there was hardly anybody there. We got the Wi-Fi well. We had (and needed) only electricity. The place served its purpose of being a take-off point for McCarthy and Kennicott. The gas pump was very busy, but not a problem. The washers and dryers apparently serve the whole community; when I took a shower, it ran out of hot water very quickly because the washers had used it up. The no hookup sites were very nice, and if we stayed there again, which we would do if visiting McCarthy, we would probably stay in that area.

Rate is 1/2 price senior access. This is a BLM site with no frills. But it is nicely vegetated and sites are well separated. There were about 7 or 8 pull-through sites in our section (1 of 2) - easily accommodated our 36 ft + toad. But a number were not very level. No hookups, of course, and pit toilets. The approximately 1 mile gravel road into the campground is a bit rough, but OK when we took it slow. There is an associated boat launch and large lake. We liked it. A warning about gas - the Milepost book says there is gas in Paxson. Not any more; out of commission. Nearest gas is about 30 miles up Denali Highway. The paved Richardson highway getting here from Glennallen was quite wavy and deteriorated. We would gladly stay at Paxson Lake again if we were willing to brave the Richardson Hwy with a large RV and toad. It worked at 30-35 mph. A camper or untowed RV would probably be OK on the Hwy.

Date of Stay:

A very big gravel park. The sites were adequate size, but many of the campers had boats as well as trucks and RVs, so there was not much maneuvering room. We had a back corner site which protected us on two sides, but on the side in front, someone decided to park a boat trailer; at least it was far enough in front that we could get the toad in and out. The staff was friendly, the hookups were good, the Wi-Fi worked adequately. The showers were clean. It was conveniently located. Everything was pretty good if you like an RV city. We might stay there again.

Date of Stay:

This was a pretty good park for an overnight. Gravel sites were level; our hookups were at the tail end of our back-in site - OK for us, but maybe not others. Pull-throughs were separated better than the back-ins. Staff was friendly; one couple was learning, but the third person very efficient and knowledgeable. Showers were good, but few. No laundry - we were referred to the town laundromat. We would stay there again for a night.

Date of Stay:

A nice place to spend a night. Sites were adequate sized. Might be a bit tight if full, but it wasn't. Hookups were good and we got Wi-Fi at the site (we pull in pretty well). They provide guests with a "special" inexpensive, very good breakfast of bacon, scrambled eggs, and pancakes. The rest of the menu was a bit pricey. While at breakfast, I was able to see some mountain sheep high on the hills across the road. Actually, there were nice views in every direction. We would stay there again.

Rate reflects Senior access pass discount. We thought this a great U.S. Forest Service park (thanks to rvparksreviews for telling us about it). We had our RV in a long, paved, level, pull through site with a good view of waterfalls from a glacier ("Middle Glacier"?). But the best view is as you turn into the park from the highway. Near glaciers and spawning salmon streams. Just an excellent place to stay. Some sites can apparently be reserved, but most others cannot. We stayed 2 nights and would do it again.
