Ely KOA

Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay:

Stayed for one night. Typical KOA (expensive for what you get) website advertises cable TV, but no cable available. Most sites are gravel, although some have grassy areas. Good news most sites are shaded, bad news is that the trees may block your satellite signal. Numerous over the air TV channels available from Las Vegas, Salt Lake City or Reno. Quiet and well maintained.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here for one night. Campground located on South side of I-80, all sites are gravel pull thru some up to 60'. Not the Ritz but adequate for short stay, or overnight and a better choice than other campgrounds in Ely. Some Interstate and distant train noise, but did not bother us at night. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and all taxes. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This campground is a "sleeper" in the Lac La Hache area. It was a KOA Campground at one time that has been renovated by the owner into a pretty nice campground. It is situated off the highway so there is a bit of noise, but it dissipates in the evening. There is a wonderful walking trail to the top of a knoll behind campground, great view! Campground is well kept, with pool. Would stop here again if in area.

Date of Stay:

Another gem of a Yukon government campground. Large sites, pull-throughs and back-ins, along the Alaska Highway. Facility manager keeps the campground tidy and full of firewood. Very convenient overnight stop if you are turning on to, or off of, the Cassiar Highway. Big rig friendly. Right off the Alaska Highway, but little traffic noise. Spots fill up early during the travel season so stop early to get the prime locations. 25 miles northwest of the Cassiar Highway junction and services. No cell coverage.

Date of Stay:

Wonderful location, only 15 amp power available, with water and a dump station. Great, but popular, stop for those traveling the Alaska Hwy. Sites are fairly level, owners are very helpful, and ready to serve you, but don't walk on the grass. Facilities were clean and well kept for a seasonal campground in this area. Would highly recommend this campground for those traveling the Alaska Hwy.

Date of Stay:

Wonderful/beautiful provincial park, but very popular. If you want a site on the lake, arrive early! Park has Wi-Fi for a fee, and it looks like it may be getting ready to connect to power. Sites are not the most spacious, but you can't beat the views. If you are traveling to Hyder/Stewart staying at this campground and driving your tow vehicle the 40 miles (one way) to the coast is a super good option. Stayed here 4 nights. Would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone traveling the Cassiar Hwy.

Date of Stay:

Wonderful campground on Kinaskan Lake. Hosts are very helpful. All sites are back-in, spacious, most are level. Some sites will support big rigs. Wonderful spot to spend the night, or a few days if you are traveling the Cassiar Hwy. Dry camping. Access road has a circle at the end so entering with a tow vehicle to pick a spot is acceptable.

Date of Stay:

All spaces for RV's are back-ins and off of looped road. They are relatively level with plenty of room to maneuver. Sites have fire ring and picnic table with water spigots centrally located. Over the air TV reception available as well as cell phone service. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Although outside of town it is a good choice while in Tok. Spaces are well separated with vegetation/trees. Plenty of room to maneuver. Nightly entertainment provided by Campground Staff and has a communal camp fire with campground providing the marshmallows and roasting sticks. Set in grove of Spruce and Aspens. Staff helpful and very accommodating. Stayed in a back-in site with FHU and would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Best choice in the town of Chicken. It is a rustic campground with a lot of history and gold mining equipment. Best gift shop in Chicken also has food and ice cream. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Rate reflects dry camping in caravan pull thru's next to Gold Dredge. I would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects Good Sam Discount. Parked our 34' MH towing, in 30A, FHU back-in site. If you are looking for a Northern RV park with some ambience this will give you what you are looking for. Sites are separated by trees/vegetation with fire rings and picnic tables to the side in most cases. Laundry facilities were excellent. RV/Car wash on site. Convenient to town and attractions. Internet was slow with limited availability (0800-2130 daily), but after seeing advertisements of what individuals have to pay for internet service, I can see why the service we take for granted at home is not available here in the North Country! Wonderful collection of ALCAN highway building equipment along the entrance road. Would definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. As others have commented pull throughs have easy access, but spaces are narrow! If two RV's are parked next to each other and both had their slides extended - it would be tough to walk between the two of them. If you don't mind un-hooking the back-in sites are cheaper and have more space/separation. What park lacks in ambience - it makes up for it in convenience. Pretty much everything one would want to see/do in Watson Lake is within walking distance.

Date of Stay:

Great location, some lakeside sites available. Bear proof litter boxes, water spigots, lake swimming, hiking trails, restrooms, play area, pay phone, some sites can be reserved. Very popular on weekends and holidays; we stayed on a weekend so campground was pretty vacant. Sites in the 1-14 loop are spacious with most being fairly level, could accommodate motorhome up to 36'. Day use parking area is very convenient for un-hooking and hooking tow vehicle. Stayed in site 11 for 1 night; was a wonderful site. Would definitely stay again.

Date of Stay:

Convenient location right off Hart Hwy. Heavily wooded sites, reasonable access for motorhomes to 34'. Stayed is site 18, interior roads are narrow. Camped here in 34' motorhome towing for 1 night on our way North. Campground takes reservations for some sites. Popular campground on week-ends and holidays, we were here mid-week. Probably would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Office staff are very friendly and eager to accommodate your needs. Sites are mostly gravel pull-thrus, some sites are grassy, nicest sites are blocked off, suspect Caravan coming through. Rate reflects AAA/FMCA discount of 10%. Early in season so not any dust issues. Laundry, Showers and Club House appear to be in new building which is keep immaculate, washers are $3 and driers are $2, Loony for a shower room. Stayed here for 3 nights in a 34' Motorhome towing on our way to Alaska. Good place to stock up as you head North. Would stay here again!
