The rate reflects the monthly rate. We had made reservations for the month of December and before we finished setting up, we added a second month. This is probably one of the nicest and finest RV resorts we have found in our 5 years of fulltiming. Sites are large and well laid out for easy hookups. The facility is extremely well maintained and clean. Roads are paved and parking pads are level concrete with a generous patio space for the provided picnic table. Water pressure is high, so use a regulator. All of the utilities are easily accessible and in excellent condition. We have no negative comments about Buckhorn Lake.

Rate reflects Passport America. The manager was delightful and informative, he didn't ask for any paperwork, just pay and go to your site. Never had that happen before, but it makes good sense. Large pull through sites concrete and level. 50 amps, water and sewer. Don't know about cable as we use our satellite dish. Lots of permanent residents but very well maintained. Great little park.

Date of Stay:

RV sites with 30 amps and water and lots of burrs and stickers. Not well maintained at all.

Date of Stay:

The park has good hookups but the sites are overgrown with weeds with stickers and burrs. There are tables at each site on imitation turf which is a nice touch. Very level and would definitely use again for an overnighter.

This park just opened about 3 months ago according to the person at check in. Sites closer to the highway have more road noise, we were at the far end away from the road so it was no issue to us. Layout was obviously done by someone who doesn't use an RV. In some sites, we saw RVs with 3 extensions on the sewer hose in order to reach the sewer connection. Many sites had a drainage ditch at both ends of the site for water runoff, in many instances so severe it made the worst speed bumps look tame in comparison. Our site did not have them and was easy in and out with a 41' motorhome with car in tow. There was a very small concrete pad oddly placed. Our entry door is at the front of our coach and the concrete pad was at the rear of the RV and directly adjacent to the neighbors sewer connection. We were here for the week of Thanksgiving and most sites were open. Felt the price was definitely on the high side.

This is an RV park affiliated with a manufactured home community. Everything is well maintained, the RV portion has gravel roads and spaces with full hookups and up to 50 amp power available. Easy to maneuver in our 41' motorhome. Quiet even though adjacent to Highway 97 on south edge of Prince George. Wifi works well.

Date of Stay:

Back-in sites behind the motel. Check in was at a motel a block away, kind of a nuisance. Sewer hookup and fresh water connection were adjacent to one another. I bleached and did my best to sanitize the fresh water connection before connecting. This is a very poor situation.

This community is on hard times and the park reflects the economic reality of the area. What brings people to this community is the bear viewing platform provided by the U.S. Forest Service nearby. The park is basically a large gravel lot with standing water when it rains, which it did in abundance during our 3 day stay. The 30amp power was weak and our built-in surge protector kept kicking the off to our motorhome. Unfortunately, we had to use propane for heat and water heating to compensate. Mentioned the problem to the manager who didn't seem to want to deal with the problem.

Date of Stay:

We were initially planning to stay just overnight, but stayed for 3 nights because the park was so nice and well maintained. Owners live on site and are on task all day. The only downside was 30amp power only, some large potholes upon entering the park and little highway noise. Not objectionable at all. We felt this was an outstanding deal.

This is the most beautiful Provincial Park we have ever stayed in Canada. The setting is wonderful and the current park operators have manicured, cleaned and set out flowers that make this a destination. Our site was on gravel on the edge of the lake and we had 30amp power. Not all sites have power, but some are available. We had no problems maneuvering our 41 foot motorhome. A tremendous value.

Date of Stay:

It's great to find a National Forest Campground with full hookups, and 50amp at that! On the shores of Mendenhall Lake which is fed by the Mendenhall Glacier. Within 5 miles of the Alaska Ferry and about 10 miles from Juneau. The problem was the site layout, many were not level and the hookups worked very well with the exception of the sewer connection. Most of the sites we saw, the connection was uphill from the RV. We have a 41' motorhome and had to drive our front wheels up on blocks to get level, even with our leveling system. A great value nonetheless.

Date of Stay:

Previous reviews indicated this park may not handle big rigs over 38'. We have a 41' motorhome and access roads were very accessible, some spaces will not handle long length, but several will. Some spaces may be difficult to to get into, but we found several that handled us easily. This park is in a rain forest full of native Sitka Spruce and only a mile or so from the Alaska Ferry terminal. About 8-10 miles to town, but worth the drive. Dumping facility and fresh water near the boat launch facility in town. We enjoyed the setting and the trails.

We were pleasantly surprised. The other 2 parks we had checked online in the area were in the $40 range and we felt with this one being priced so low, it may be risky. Not so! Paved interior roads that we could handle with our 41' motorhome. Sites were a bit sloped and the length was very tight, but we easily made it work for us. All hookups were easily accessible, but a bit untidy. Overall, for the price, this was a remarkable deal. Situated between I-80 and a train yard, but we heard no objectionable noise from either. We will look forward to returning to this hidden gem.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here under Passport America and felt the rate to be very reasonable. The park is definitely dated, interior roads are a bit rough in spots and spaces are close together. What was outstanding for us and the reason for the higher score is the management and staff. They were most helpful and efficient at check-in, including the person who directed us to our site. Both of us were ill while here and they quickly and efficiently accommodated extending our time in our site even though the site had been reserved for the next day. Management is new and seems to be doing all the right things to achieve customer satisfaction. We will definitely return if in the area.

We are staying at the discounted rate through Passport America. What a great little park! Excellent first impression when driving into the registration area. Very nice on-site owners. The park is immaculate and well maintained. We will extend our stay just because it so nice. The owner gave us lots of local information about everything from historical sights to where to get local crawfish. Very large gassy sights - just a wonderful little park. They even have a pond stocked with fish that you may catch and release.
