This is the nicest County Fairground park we have stayed out. Large wide concrete pads; pull-throughs have rocks, back-ins have grass. Also right behind the park is a large grass area for playing in. No cable but antenna gets lots of stations including repeats of the majors. Utilities work well. There is a also a very nice brewery (Juniper Brewing) within walking distance from the park that cannot be missed. We plan on making this park a regular from now on.

Nice little campground, city owned but run by the Lions. It was destroyed in 2013 floods, so it is nicely re-done. Pull throughs are large with plenty of width for slides and awnings. Utilities work well. When it rains it gets very soupy and muddy (they need more gravel). Also, no laundry here and the only place in town is a ripoff. So plan on doing laundry before or after.

Date of Stay:

What the reservation site does not tell you is that most of these are 2 units per site. Many sites would not be wide enough if 2 large RVs wheels with slides showed up. So hope for a class C to stay with you or try for one of the few single sites. Electric only. Long lines at dump station in mornings (6 lanes). No fire pits in most of the sites.

Nicest KOA I have stayed at! Most KOAs stack you on top of each other. This one had plenty of space for each site and between sites. In addition lots and lots of open space around the park to make you not feel cramped. All utilities worked well. Also, got DirecTv to work here.

Nice park with decent sized sides in a woody area. Only complaints are the dust (which they can solve with more gravel) and the highway noise (which is out of their hands as there are lots of oil/gas trucks going up/down the road). Seems to be mostly perms but park is kept quiet, just means lots of people wanting to do laundry on weekends.

The reservations site is very confusing. Stayed in the trailer camp portion (50) all these are pull through sites with no fire pits and full hookups. Plenty of room between sites though roads could use some TLC to deal with pot holes.

Date of Stay:

Nothing but a gravel lot. Pull-throughs are very tight and they are still crowded in mid-August. Infrastructure works well. The owner is nice and will get you to the cheapest gas.

This is a very very nice park. It is set in the woods, very long and wide slots. Roads are adequate but watch for trees (or look at the scars from those who did not). Single water station at front of park and dump station off the Hot Springs road. Wish they had full hookups so we could stay longer without having to pull out and dump/fill. Whitehorse is about 20 minutes away and they are a mile away from the wildlife preserve. Hot Springs is a single concrete pool, lots of locals tend to visit in the late afternoon and evenings but still nice. Locker rooms are clean, but shower requires a lot of arm strength!

Electric only park (diesel generator) pit toilets and coin showers. Single hose for water near office. Grey dump station and black dump station. 4 pull-through 30 amp sites with some tree separation. A bit narrow with awnings and slides but not bad. Other sites are 15 amp in a dirt parking lot. Bac-kin sites have trees in rear. Park is basically a dirt lot. Nice office/café. Chicken is out there in nowhere, so having reliable electric power was nice.

You come here for the hot springs. Park is not much and this rainy year had lots of potholes and mud. But, you are here for the hot springs. The dump station is a bit tough for larger rigs (I ended up blocking the road).

Very nice park on the breakwater of the small boat channel and about 2 blocks away from the main park. All slots are back in but plenty of room to maneuver (it is basically a big peninsula). All utilities worked well (cable is digital so make sure you ask for a converter box). Wi-Fi worked well. All sites have a table and fire pit. Some noise at night from fish packing plants, but it is more of a low range hum. Great place to watch the boat traffic and very quiet.

Probably the nicest park we have found in Alaska. Sites are wide enough for slides and awnings with grass or bushes in between. Access roads are a bit narrow but not a problem if you have kind neighbors (which many in the park were not and left their cars/trucks blocking parts of the road). Nice walking trail along river, easy access to the town and bike trails. Wi-Fi worked well (and it is a Tengo site which is surprising). Big laundry, lots of machines ($6) that were all working.

Date of Stay:

Probably the nicest park in Seward, it is all gravel though some back in face the creek. We had reservations, but when we got there we were told that all they had was an overflow that did not have sewer (we were staying 5 days). So double check and confirm if you need full hookups that you are indeed getting them. Lots of caravans in and out of here. They filled up every night that we were there.

I have to give this place lower marks for deceptive advertising. They claim they are a full service park, but not sure what they mean by that. They are really no sewer sites(they have 4 sites) and they are the worst spots and usually taken don't expect to get one. They have no cable TV not a big deal but again what is "full service". Some slots are laid out a bit strange and make for some interesting maneuvering. The good points is the setting is nice, there are some trees, and you are really close to town for walking or biking (we never took our car the 5 days we stayed). Also, if you take the Alaska Hurricane Turn train (a must do!) you just walk out of your RV and on to the train platform.

Stayed both here and at the Golden Nugget (GN). The park has older infrastructure and is located on Alaska RR land, so not much incentive to improve. Compared to GN the roads are much wider and the site slots are angled so easy to get into, but they are narrower. Setting is nicer than GN, but neighborhood is industrial and lots of homeless running around (though the park will call the RR police if one enters). Easy walk to downtown. At least one freight train a night goes by and tracks are right behind the park. For class Cs a good park, for anyone with large units and slides it is just like GN not much room to move around. But in Anchorage you really only have two choices and this could be the lesser of 2 evils.
