Date of Stay: September, 2010
After the end of a long day's drive, we pulled into Pullen Creek RV Park based on the fact that it was not an "RV parking lot," it looked comfortable with grass and a few trees and tables. The "Milepost" ad stated there were showers and the campground was "internet friendly". That was about the only thing that was friendly here. We were greeted very gruffly with, "What do you need?" I asked for 15 amp service with water for our tent trailer and stated we would stay for 2 days, possibly for 4. I asked if any sites had sewer. He stated in an even more gruff voice, "What do you need sewer for if you are only going to be here 2 days?" Perhaps because I know the size of our small holding tank?? I asked about the internet service. It was provided through a company that charges by the day. I was surprised since everywhere we've been, including Dawson City, Yukon, had free, if limited, service. I chalked the man's mood up to having had a bad day. We went to get settled into our assigned spot and found that there was no table at our site. My husband went to ask, the guy said he could go get one from any site he wanted. David explained that I was ill (I have lupus and other issues) and couldn't help him to lift and move one. The guy said, "If you think I am going to help you move it, you have another thing coming." David eyed the fork lift, as he turned around and headed back to our site. He had at least hoped for a two wheeler, not necessarily meaning for the man to physically help him. Fortunately, a guy from Germany who was tent camping, offered to help move a table. The next day, after having to wipe off the toilet seats every time I went to use the restroom, I went to take a shower and found that it cost $2 for an 8 minute shower. This was not explained up front, either. So much for their advertising showers and internet friendly service. Pullen Creek RV Park charges full prices; we've paid less in the Yukon for full services, better kept facilities, and at least a decent attitude if not downright pleasant. We have camped all over the United States and Canada and have never been treated the way we were treated here. There is no excuse for treating people poorly, and from the other reviews I have read, this seems to be a habitual problem.

The staff was exceptionally helpful and courteous. There were extra touches to be seen everywhere you looked, from freshly cut flowers in the restrooms and shower rooms, to pieces of Yukon history placed around the grounds. The sites were neatly placed within the pine and spruce forested setting so that we didn't feel like we were having breakfast with our neighbors. The showers and internet were provided free of charge. It was very quiet and pleasant. We will be sure to stay here if we are ever in Whitehorse again.
