We have stayed down on the Spit before, but we enjoy being away from the craziness of town, but close enough to visit it. The amenities at this campground are some of the best we have had while in Alaska. The restrooms and laundry were spotless, Wifi worked well and FHU for the same price as down on the Spit. You get a free shower, with towels, soap and shampoo provided. Sprint worked OK. As other reviewers have said, the view is spectacular. Some of the sites are not level, but we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This was one of favorite places to stay while in Alaska. No hookups, pit toilets, no showers, gravel dirt level sites, but the view and the Eagles were amazing. Can be busy on the weekend with the locals enjoying themselves. We would stay here again.

We loved our experience staying at this campground. It is dry camping, there are spaces available for Big Rigs. Reservations are suggested, don't want to take a chance during season of not getting a site. Sites are level and very roomy. It sits on a large river bed, lovely to walk and sit on to watch wildlife. There are Ranger talks every night, the Park bus stops in front of the campground to take you to the end of the road, a Beautiful trip. No phone, no TV, no wifi, pets allowed on leash. We stayed here in a travel trailer and we will stay here again.

This is a quiet, clean park to stay. It is a large, level gravel parking lot. Only W/E sites with dump available. The area is lovely, Glacier view, hiking trails, nice area to walk the pup. Their wifi is spotty, Sprint phone OK. There are only Porta Potty's to use. Only 2 showers. The fire pit area is nice. For the price we thought the amenities were limited. We would stay here again if passing through.

If you want to stay right in Homer, this is OK. Sites are very tight, we had W/E only, there are a few FHU available. Antenna TV picked up a few stations, no service for Verizon Wifi, Sprint phone worked OK. Restrooms are adequate, room to walk the pup on beach, around town. Dump available. We like Homer, but we would stay north of town next time. We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.

If you want to stay close to town, this is the place. Very tight driving and getting into sites, Sites fairly level. Verizon wifi/Sprint phone Ok. Price reflects W/E only, there is a dump available. Small area to walk the pup. The 4 restrooms are the combined type, shower, sink, toilet in the same room.

Date of Stay:

This is a full service campground, a gift store, self service RV/car wash. Full hookups, sites are close together but clean. Our 30 amp service was only pulling about 109 volts. It was very warm when we were here, so a/c was on. Cable TV was good, Wi-Fi very weak. Free coffee/tea in office. Nice room to walk the pup. Verizon/Sprint service worked well. We would stay here again.

This was our least favorite stop on our way to Alaska. Campground very crowded, lots of unused material around, looks like many residents. Some sites are hard to get into, very close together. Internet very slow. No room to walk the pup. Full hook-ups with good cable TV. That is the only reason we would stay here again. Dawson City is a wonderful little town. We would stay at the park in town next time, for the convenience.

Date of Stay:

Overnight stop for us. This is electric hookup only, fresh water available to fill up containers. Some of the sites are side by side pull -throughs, sites are level, big rigs could get in. No TV or Internet, just a wonderful quiet place. Hostel area here also, restrooms very clean. Pup loved it here, room to walk. We we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

An average campground you find along the Alaska Highway. Just an overnight stop for us. Could not hookup to the Wi-Fi service, good OTA TV reception, clear sky for rooftop satellites. Office staff very nice. Was not a favorite stop of the pups; not a lot of room to walk. This is a gravel parking lot, with sites very close together. We we may try a different place next time.

This was a good stop along the Alaska Highway. Good size sites, close to road so had a little noise. Dirt interior roads to navigate, could be a little difficult for big rigs. Internet very good, cable TV good. Room to walk the pup. Used the laundry, nice and clean. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This is just a basic Alaska Highway campground. Gravel sites, close together. Two OTA TV stations, rooftop satellite ok. Very weak wifi. 30 amp Electric and water were adequate, no sewer. Room to walk the pup. The campground itself was clean and we felt safe. We may try a different campground next time. We stayed here in a travel trailer, we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Good place for overnight, not really any other good choices around. Office staff friendly, park clean. Pull-through can fit any size rig. Water and electric only. Just a grassy field, fairly level. Got several over-the-air channels, Verizon worked OK. No Sprint. The park's Wi-Fi adequate for emails and a little surfing. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Many long pull through sites for the big rigs, some back to back sites for smaller ones to share. Plenty of room to walk the pup, no OTA service, Sprint, no service. There are sites for roof top satellite to get service. The sites are fairly level, utilities were good. Clean Restrooms spaced throughout the park, only one shower in the building close to us, not sure about the others. We stayed here in a travel trailer, we would stay here again.

There are three parts to the park. Towards the back is a parking lot type of area, pull-through and in the open. Second part is the "Wilderness" for tents, and the third area around the Clubhouse is where we were. It is a shady area with mature trees and grass between the sites,. The sites all appear fairly level. There is room to walk the pup and and a fenced dog run area. The laundry is clean with about 8 washers and dryers. The restrooms were clean, the showers needed a token that you purchase in the office. The parks Wi-Fi is only available in the clubhouse or laundry room. TengoInternet is available park wide for a fee. The clubhouse is huge, with a small gym, pool table, big screen TV. The rate reflects a Passport America discount. A We enjoyed our stay here, and we would stay here again.
