Rate is for a full hookup pull thru site after Good Sam discount is applied. We found the back in sites too short to accommodate the fifth wheel and the truck. We were too lazy to park the truck elsewhere in the overflow and spent the 10$ extra for the pull thru. The sites are level concrete pads with excellent hookups in a resort style park with a pond and a fountain in the middle. Your neighbors will be ten yards left and right with some low shrubbery between the sites. Don't expect too much privacy here. However, it is a good place just two miles off the I-5 to get away from the highway and train noise. We didn't use any amenities but assume they will all be in the same excellent shape as everything in this park appears to be. Friendly and competent staff at the check in. Garbage pick up in the morning. Probably more goodies we didn't check out because we just stayed over night.

All we have stated in our review from January is still true. Except for the dump that is now locked and as a registered guest you will get a code from the camphost to use it free. Otherwise it's still the not very appealing gravel parking lot. But we like Calistoga and what the area has to offer. With the Passport America Discount (Sun thru Thu) this campground is the best value for money in Napa Valley. We found it even more quiet at night than last time. Whenever we come to napa Valley this will be our choice to stay.

Our second stay here after February 2014 and nothing has changed. Still the same (25$) rate for a W/E site and the 50% discount for National Parks Annual Passholders. Only two other campers in the park so we had free choice for sites. All paved and level. Some with hookups, most without. A quiet place just a few miles off the I-5, even without the discount it's a bargain. Gas stations and groceries at the I-5 exit. We'll stay here again on the way home.

One of our 'must stay' parks on the way south. Just five miles from the I-5 this park offers a great getaway from the travelling routine. Paved and level sites with hookups in good order. Very quiet and nice views. Unfortunately the lake is almost nonexistent by now. We hope for some rain and snow. Verizon signal was good. Gas station right at the freeway and grocery stores in town. We'll be back on our way home (and next year ...)

A decent place for an overnighter when travelling the I-5. About 1.5 miles away from the exit Brookhollow is an open grassy place with asphalt pads. Hookups in good order. Some very distant train noise but none from the freeway. Groceries and gas stations just on the other side of the I-5 exit. We didn't use any amenities thus can't comment. We'll earmark Brookhollow as a convenient overnight location when we travel the I-5 again.

We took the 15 miles detour from I-5 because we are always looking for quiet places to spend the night. That's what we got. Tucked away in the woods and far from all shopping amenities. The paved road through the park is very tight and winding. We had to take it really slow with our 34' trailer in tow. Maneuvering into the back in site was tight as well, but we managed. Don't take anything bigger in there. Sites are gravel and fairly level. No water in the park this time of the year. We knew and had the fresh water tank filled before. Power was stable. Verizon signal strong and steady. Very quiet at night, no traffic noise and no train noise whatsoever. We'll come back when travelling in the area.

This is not a review, rather an information post. When we tried to check in today, we learned that all but four electric sites are gone. If you want an electric site, you really have to call in advance and make a reservation. Dry camping was free, but too cold for us this time of the year.

Inga Lake is a gem. 70 kilometers north of Fort St. John watch for signs (at km 145 Alaska Hwy) and follow the gravel road for 2 kilometers (keep right at the fork) to the campground. What a beautiful and serene setting right on the lake. Unfortunately only a handful of the sites have lake access and lake views, the rest are nestled in the woods. Most sites are for small RVs but a few will accommodate bigger rigs (30-35'). Of course these sites are mostly taken by locals for the season. Campground is bare bones except for a pit toilet. The lake invites for fishing or a nice swim. The sites are somewhat unlevel but come with a picnic table and a fire pit. Super quiet at night. A wonderful hideaway only two kilometers off the Alcan, that's why we will come back on our next trip north.

From Hwy 97 in Lac La Hache, turn onto Timothy Lake Road (paved) and follow for 15 kilometers. The campground will be on your right. Beautiful setting right on the lake. Most of the sites have lake access, a few offer some shade, the rest are in the open. Sites are level and relatively close together, so privacy is not the best. No amenities but a pit toilet, picnic tables and fire pits. Very quiet place. We found it worth the detour and will stay again.

This is a free campground right across the gas station in Pelly Crossing. Looks like an abandoned Yukon Government campground to me. A little neglected but still in good shape. A few hookup sites are taken by permanents, so available sites are all dry. Sites are somewhat unlevel but well spaced and provide good privacy. Some are surrounded by trees, some are in the open. Pit toilets in the campground. Water spigot at the hut at the entrance. Dump at the gas station (fee). Very quiet place. Shower facilities and laundry across the highway. We'll be back on our next Yukon trip.

This camping area just across from the Fishing Hole is named Tent Area 1&2 on the City of Homer website. But RV's up to 20' are allowed too. In fact nobody measures your RV, so a foot or two longer is OK too. Right on the beach with gorgeous views over the sea to the mountains, it's hard to beat. However, watch out for soft spots and bring some levelling equipment. Quiet at night, but traffic picks up very early in the morning when people head out fishing. No amenities but a pit toilet. More toilets and a water spigot at the fish cleaning station a few hundred meters down the road.

During all of our five weeks in Alaska this was our favourite place to stay overnight. One of the multiple spots where you can camp for free along the Chena Hot Springs Road. Once you have managed the big potholes on the short way in you are rewarded with plenty of space to set up camp around one of the two ponds. We counted six picnic tables and fire pits indicating camping spots but there is way more room to camp without bothering any neighbor. No amenities whatsoever just a beautiful quiet setting at the ponds. Enough room to bring in bigger rigs and turn around. Just take it slow, it's bumpy. If we ever come back to this area, we will take a detour to stay a night or two at 48 mile pond on Chena Hot Springs Road.

We stayed here when driving up the Steese Highway. It is a convenience store and cafe that offers a couple of sites to stay overnight. Rate is for electric hookup (15 amp). Dry site is 15$. There are no amenities whatsoever except for the excellent WiFi. Which is a rare find on any campground in Alaska. There are no formal 'sites'. You park on an open field besides the store and if you want power the owner supplies a long cord to connect to the outlet at the store. The cafe has some amazing reviews. We couldn't try because the cook had a day off. We enjoyed the friendliness of the owner and the very quietness at night. The WiFi was a treat. Some day we'll be back and stay again.

Unlike the other designated camping areas along the Hatcher Pass Road, this is just a parking lot and that's why the rate is only 5$ instead of 15$ like the other places. Right off the Hatcher Pass Road at mile 16 it's an open level and paved parking lot, where you just find your place to park for the night. No amenities except a pit toilet. You can find a threaded water spigot (potable water) at the Gold Mint Trailhead two miles down the road. Traffic on the road dies down after 8 pm. Then it's absolutely quiet and you can really enjoy the sweeping views around and down the valley towards Palmer. Lots of hiking trails in the area and apparently good berry picking too. We saw many people with full containers returning to their vehicles.

A small campground (dry camping only) just across from the Carcross airstrip. No worries, there was not a single plane landing or taking off during our stay. Sites were unlevel but well spaced. Picnic tables and fire rings in each site. Trees around provided shade and privacy. Pit toilets available and a water spigot which didn't work. Overall the place could use a little maintenance. We liked it nevertheless and will come back.
