Wildhorse campground is a big operation. There are lots of sites, all lined up for easy access and exit. Check-in is efficient, quick and easy. There's plush grassy areas surrounding the campground for dog walking and the casino is within easy walking distance (but they will send a free shuttle if desired). OTA television was good and the free Wi-Fi was excellent when log-on was possible (logon tended to be overloaded during peak times). Verizon service was excellent. The ambiance at Wildhorse RV park was all business with very little character to the park; it was organized and clean but there was nothing to suggest a longer stay. It's a great park if you're passing through and need a spot for the night. We'd stay here again.

I think this is probably the nicest campground on highway 65 to Las Vegas, but still nothing special. The campsites are full hookups, have a little foliage between sites but are all dirt. (In this area of Nevada, the water situation precludes grass and my evaluation takes that impossibility into consideration). Although right beside the highway, the highway noise is minimal. There's a very small creek that runs beside the campground and wild burros that walk in the creek and pleasingly serenade the campground occasionally. Being this is Nevada, there's casinos everywhere, but I didn't check them out (one's right next door). Staff at the Space Station RV park are very friendly and helpful; check-in quick and easy. Cable and excellent WiFi are included in the price. Verizon service is good. I'd stay here again if passing through Beatty.

Simple, plain park next to the Columbia River. The 13 parallel RV sites are either grass or gravel with sun or shade, depending on the site. Water and electric hookups; no sewer and no dump station. Very clean park setting with boat ramps, lots of grassy areas but close to Highway 97 and fairly noisy. Verizon 4G service good but OTA television was primarily PBS (7 of the 10 channels). Dog friendly. No apparent restrictions on washing vehicles. I would stay here again.

Plain and simple RV sites at the city park. Full hookups including 50 amp service but the sewer connection is only on site 5. There's a total of 5 sites, each parallel to each other in a paved parking lot with only a painted line between each site. There's enough room to extend sliders but not much more. If you want to set up chairs, the whole park is available and it's a very nice park. There's room to walk the dog, have a picnic or just sit in the shade. Overall, a decent site and we'd stay here again if we needed an in-transit site.

Great RV campground! Very clean, grass and gravel sites either on the waterfront or with a view of the water. I checked in at 3PM and had no trouble finding waterfront sites that were empty. I took one and the camp manager came by a couple of hours later and collected the $20 Canadian, cash only. The contractor who just took over the park doesn't have the internet connected yet so can't take credit cards and doesn't offer WiFi to tenants. However, sites can be reserved on the internet using a credit card which the camp manager verifies daily at an off-site internet point. There was significant space between each site, more than average privacy and it was quiet. There are no water/sewer/electricity hookups but generator use is acceptable between 7AM and 10PM. That being said, I never heard a generator, not even during those hours. The lake the campground sits on has boat-launch facilities available without charge and offers some of the best views in Canada...and this for only $20 Canadian ($18US). I highly recommend this park and would definately stay here again.

Nice RV park for an overnight stay. Sites are grass and the driveways are packed gravel. There's flower gardens and shade in some of the sites. Check-in is easy and the owner very friendly. There's an additional cost for Wi-Fi per computer, an additional cost for cable TV (that doesn't work) and costs based on pull-through, back-in or 30/50 amps. The park is very well kept-up and the owner's dedication to the park is obvious. I probably won't stay here again because of all the add-on costs, but the campground quality is a step above most of the ones I've stayed at since I left Alaska.

Great RV park for an overnight stay; sign in and choose whatever site you like. Sites are a little short, but are laid out well and everyone seems to make adjustments. There's space between the sites and plenty of room for the slider and to set chairs out for an evening cocktail. Sites are gravel and dirt, making for a lot of dust, a situation not helped by on-going construction on the ALCAN that runs in front. It's somewhat noisy but that's mitigated by the minimal traffic moving at night. We don't use campground bathrooms so can't comment on cleanliness, but did notice during check-in that the laundry room was messy. Water and 30/50 amp electric hookups; sewer is at a dump station. No television but surprisingly good Wi-Fi. Rate is $32 Canadian; $26 US.

Nice park! We checked out all the parks in Valdez and each space in this park has, by far, more privacy than all the other parks. This park has grassy, tree filled areas between each site and many are set back from the park road. Nice views of the mountains and a waterfall coming off the top. Electric only! No water and no sewer but a dump station is available and convenient. The campground roads are all dirt and gravel leading to a considerable amount of dust with no dust-abatement in effect. We have 4g coverage from Verizon here (2 bars) and are able to pick up one analog TV station over-the-air. Bathrooms are well-placed and appear clean. Cost is $25 for Military/Retired Military and $30 for everyone else, per night.

This campground is basically a large parking area in front of the hotel but with full hookups and 50 amp service. It's right-off the Glenn Highway and close to the intersection of Glenn/Tok Cutoff/Richardson Highways and a great campground if you're just planning to spend the night (and I can't imagine anyone doing anything else in Glennallen). The campground is very basic but clean. No bathrooms or showers. The water is very carbonated and comes out milky but clears quickly. The surrounding area is dominated with buildings that look in poor repair but the hotel and restaurant appear quite nice, at least from the outside. There isn't a lot of road noise because there's not a lot of traffic and overall it was a pleasant night's stay. I'd stay here again if I was passing through Glennallen.

Good park with a million-dollar view. The RV park sits on top of the bluffs overlooking Cook's Inlet. Looking out you see the full Inlet with all the snow-covered mountains in the background. The park is reached a couple of miles before Homer but you've got to keep your eyes open for it--it's not well marked. It sits behind a gas station on top of a fairly steep down-grade going into Homer. Once you pull off the road and into the park, you know you've chosen the right place. My wife and I walked through and there's not a bad site. Not one! Bathrooms and laundry room were clean. The laundry was expensive; $4.00 for a wash and $0.25/five minutes for the dry cycle. The "fully-loaded" price for the sites was $50.00--the most expensive place I've stayed in while here in Alaska. If it wasn't for the cost, I would have rated them higher. The access roads and interior roads were paved; the sites were gravel and grass and there was minimal highway noise. Despite the cost, I would definitely stay here again.

Very clean and top-notch park support. We never found anything out of place while we stayed here. Campsites are reasonably-well spaced and each site had a paved pad. On the downside, the campground is right beside SR-81 and is VERY noisy. If you stay here, try to get a site 1-21 or 141-158 which are the furthest from the road. Those sites aren't quiet but are further from the road than the sites numbered 62-92. While here, take the Clewiston Chamber of Conference tour of historic houses, sugar processing and citrus: it's well worth the while. I probably won't stay here again because of the noise, but again, it is a clean, nice campground

John Prince Campground is well maintained and clean. We camped here in the winter and the park was packed--not am empty site. Reservations are absolutely essential. Some the sites are right on top of each other; others are well spaced out. We had a waterfront site with lots of room but the non-waterfront all looked a lot tighter. Each site is paved and relatively level. WIFI is good but gets saturated with all the users. There is a good 10-mile bike-riding trail around the park that's worth doing. Staff was overworked but friendly and efficient. We would stay here again.

Campground appears to be going downhill and needs upgrading. Electric hookup cabinets had panels falling off that exposed bare electric mains. Cable TV appeared to be there at one time but had fallen into disrepair. Swimming pool is available at neighboring Ramada Hotel but was cracking with a lot of mold in the cracks. There's a lot of full-timers with sites in need of cleaning. However, the campground is close to I-95 (less than 1 mile), surprisingly quiet, generally clean and the staff is better than average. Rate paid was Passport America. Despite all the bad, my wife and I would stay here again due to it's proximity to the highway.

Date of Stay:

Up-and-coming campground. It appears a lot of improvements are being made. The campground is clean and tidy with wide, pull-through sites. Staff is friendly with quick check-in and escort to the site. Camp store is mediocre with little on the shelves. The above-ground pool was clean and looking inviting. Crated dogs in neighboring sites barked constantly but otherwise there was little noise. The campground is located about 30 miles off I-95. Because of the distance from the highway, we probably won't stay here again. Rate shown is a Passport America rate.

Great campground! Spacious, waterfront sites with concrete pads and lots of foliage. Be careful: my GPS brought me in from the East and assumed that the ferry would be a good match for my motorhome. The Ferry holds about two cars and wasn't compatible, but the drive around was only about 45 minutes. We sat on the banks of the river every evening and watched bird, animal and boat activity. We camped here during the week and it was quiet and well-spaced but I've heard it's jam-packed on weekends. The $23 rate is Passport America and is only available on weekdays; on top of the rate is a $4 per day energy surcharge. Credit cards are not accepted nor are checks for PA; however the staff found ways to say "yes" to resolve shortfalls. We will definitely stay here again.
