Williwaw campground has breathtaking views of mountains and glaciers. Hiking paths take you past beaver ponds, streams and to glaciers. We parked our 38 foot motorhome and tow car in our site. Paved roads and sites throughout. Primitive campground with no shower facilities. Pit toilets are available. Golden Access cardholders stay for half price. We highly recommend this campground.

As full time RVers for seven years we have stayed in many campgrounds. We do not have a problem with primitive campgrounds or natural surroundings such as grass or gravel lots. This was the worst campground we have ever seen. Upon a recommendation from a stranger we made reservations sight unseen because the Denali Park campgrounds were full. We wedged our 38 foot motor home up against the back of the shopping center since that is where the full hookups were. Once you back into the site to be able to hook up to water and electric, the sewer is on the wrong side and near the front of the RV. I had to laugh when I saw that the picnic tables. Situated between the lots they had 2 numbers painted on them. You have to share a table with your neighbor. With about six feet between campers, a fire pit is placed beside the table. We didn't have the nerve to have a campfire that close to the RV. The water was unusable. It had been heavily chlorinated and then apparently baking soda added to try to counteract the bleach. It soured the coffee creamer and blew the top off a shaken protein mix drink. This was one of those laugh so you don't cry situations. Find a gravel pit to stay in, but save yourself the headache and the money. The price just added insult to injury!

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The staff was so friendly and personable that we returned on our way back through from Homer. The showers, restroom, and laundry are sparkling clean and well maintained. It is a quaint, quiet campground. We chose a site with electric only, but full hookups or sites with water and electric are available. The gravel lots are level. The grounds are kept up. The campground has a playground for children; a covered pavilion with picnic tables and gas grills for your use; and free Wi-Fi with your stay. Great place to stay not only to visit Wasilla, but to visit area highlights such as Hatcher Pass and Summit Lake. We stayed here in our 38 foot motor home and the site was large enough for our rig and tow car. This is definitely the best RV park in the area.

Riverside Retreat has a campground/RV park open to all. Also hosting a camp for churches, organizations, schools, etc. the campground/RV park is separate from that camp area. Situated on the Caloosahatchee River, Riverside Retreat's motto is, "It's the Nature of the Place." It is a quiet park in a natural setting. You may spy gopher tortoises, bobcats, or armadillos on any of the hiking paths. Canoe or kayak the Caloosahatchee. The roads and sites are not paved, but it is a full hook-up campground with a friendly staff. We highly recommend this little gem of a campground. We visit every winter.
