We were lucky to get a site as the campground was full by noon the day we arrived. There is an overflow section near the day use section available when all the campsites are full. The rate for the overflow is the same from what other campers told me. Our site was a gravel back-in that included a table and grill. No utilities are available other than a couple of water spigots and the dump station is at the 115 St. municipal works (excellent facility and free). I didn't use the park water after looking at past reviews and filled up at the dump station in town. The park toilets are flush toilets that used to be pit types and consequently there are no wash basins, only hand sanitizer dispensers. We managed to pick up on the antenna 4 US TV stations and oddly no Canadian ones. No Wi-Fi that I am aware of, just the peace and quiet of the park. Other than a few generators on during certain hours (9-11 am and 6-8 pm) and the odd dog barking it was fairly quiet. When the water is calm great place to kayak. Even the odd person swimming although the water must be fairly cool this time of year. Two pay phones near the center of the campground. Dumpsters in three different locations so not far to walk with the garbage. The park is very popular with locals who walk to the campground and on the Haynes Park Trail. Despite the lack of facilities this is an excellent park to relax. Reservations a must from May 15 to approximately September 12-15. Other times come early as this place fills up quickly. We will continue to use this park when the mood strikes.

The entrance near the office was jammed with parked vehicles as there wasn't enough room to park and register. However, registration went smoothly and I was able to get a free night due to my frequent camper card given to me last year. Park roads are paved and campsites are well graveled. Our site (#157) was fairly private due to the trees and shrubs surrounding it, but we still had a good view of the ocean. Sites have tables and fire rings. Hookups were mid way and actually worked well with my setup. All utilities worked fine. Garbage had to be taken down to near the entrance and sometimes there were lineups of RVs making it challenging to get around them. Cable TV was fairly basic with plenty of music channels. Most of the time the channels were clear, but occasionally spotty. WiFi at the site costs extra and I didn't have time to use it so didn't bother getting it. There was a Shaw Go Wifi hotspot near the office that was free for registered devices. Most of the time it was quiet, but some of the "weekend warriors" could be heard late at night. There are some nice trails to hike. We missed out on using the small restaurant down the lane from us as it closed after Labour Day. All in all still a pretty good place to stay for awhile.

Our site was a gravel pull-in which meant we had to back out when leaving. It was hot and the best part of this site was a huge tree that provided shade. The site had a paver brick patio and a table. Spacing was pretty tight as our awning was within inches of our neighbour's slideouts. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV had around 70 channels and they were clear. Wi-Fi was hopeless as it was hard to even get access. Gates close at night, but one gate could be opened by using a supplied code. As choice is limited in this city, we would probably use this park again if in the area.

Our site was a gravel pull-through that was fairly level and a table was included. Some grass between sites, but it was sparse. Nice panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, but 6 channels off the air. Wi-Fi was slow at times due to traffic. We have been staying here for years and will continue to use it in the future.

Rate is for and electric and water site and surcharge for extra person. This park is accessed by a narrow bridge that crosses over a creek. There is a gate on one end of the bridge that is locked at night. Friendly and efficient staff. We had an escort to our site. The site was a gravel back-in that could have used a few more feet in width as it was only as wide as the motorhome. The sites in our section had grass between them. They had tables included. No fire pits, but a large community one was available nearby. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV had around 15 channels with no local channels from Edmonton. Instead it had Global New Brunswick? Great for the Maritimers I suppose. Wi-Fi worked well enough for emails, browsing and photo downloads. There was a camping kitchen shelter nearby that had plenty of electric ranges and sinks. Usually we don't frequent KOAs as they are usually more expensive than the competition, but at least for this park there were plenty of facilities that justified the cost. Next time we are in the area I would like to try another park in the area to compare with this one.

Even if you make a reservation don't expect to get a full hookup site. There are only 10 of them and most of them looked like they were occupied by workers. Our site was a back-in water and electric and in that section there was grass between the sites as well as a table and fire ring. There were a couple of long pull-throughs that could take any size unit. The full hookup sites had the worst location. They were up against a fence near the highway and hardly any space between them. There is also another section where all sites are gravel. The campground is part of a larger park that has a playground and walking trails near the south end of Charlie Lake. No cable TV, but found 1 channel over the air and satellite reception should be good as most sites are open. Wi-Fi was extremely slow and next to useless. The dump station could be accessed both directions, but could be used by only one unit at a time. Traffic noise would be noticeable at sites closer to the highway. I might check out other campgrounds in the area for a full hookup site if ever here again.

Had to sort out our reservation for this place as we were assigned a site away from the lake and for only one night. In the end we got our lake view site for 2 nights as previously requested. Our site (#15) was a level gravel back-in. It was a spacious site that had a table and grill. All utilities worked fine. Our satellite cable TV had problems with picture quality and would cut out at times. Only about 10 channels available. Wi-Fi worked fine until the evening traffic slowed it down considerably. It was good enough at times for downloading pictures. Laundromat has 3 washers and 3 dryers. Wash was good, but drying took time. Restrooms and showers clean, but old and dated. Still this place is one of the better stops along the Alaska highway and we would not hesitate in staying here again.

Another gravel parking lot with hookups. We had a back-in that required leveling. Noticed that big rigs in the pull-throughs looked a bit tight. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV had around 15 channels and they were clear. Wi-Fi was free for first 30 min. and worked okay, but was slow. Close to most of Watson Lake activities. For that reason would probably stay here again if in the area.

Due to great staff I was able to get a full hookup without a reservation. Make sure you make reservations for this place in the summer. We had a fairly spacious gravel back-in site (#119). Only concern was it sloped down at the back so required some leveling. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV had around 25 channels and most were not very clear. Wi-Fi was free for first 30 minutes and cost $3.95 for the next hour or $7.95 for 24 hours. It worked fine for e-mail or browsing. Closest RV park to Whitehorse. We would probably stay here again for that reason alone.

Friendly and helpful staff. Park is a big gravel parking lot with hookups. Sites very close to each other. All utilities worked fine. No TV available, but satellite might work on the west side. Wi-Fi worked, but was slow. Walking distance to most of Dawson City. Due to convenience would probably stay here again if ever again in the area.

Our site was a gravel back-in separated by adjacent sites by old pieces of mining water pipe. The RV park is part of the "Town of Chicken" which has gift shops, restaurant, and cabins. There is even a fancy suspension bridge across Chicken Creek to the cabins. Water is available for freshwater tanks as well as a dump station. Being in the middle of nowhere there is no TV or radio. Wi-Fi worked well enough for e-mail or browsing. As there was water and showers available I would stay here again if in the area.

Good thing I made reservations for this park. It was full unless you had a reservation. It must be popular with caravans as several were here during our stay. Efficient staff in the office and free coffee as well. Our site was a fairly level gravel pull-through. Some grass or trees between sites. Most sites have a table. Room for big rigs in the pull-throughs, but not their toads which made for a narrow passage on the loops due to vehicles parked on the roads. All the utilities worked fine. Cable TV had around 12 channels and most were clear. Wi-Fi was hopeless. It is provided by Tengo and slow as molasses. Laundry was clean and efficient. There is a nice picnic area by the Chena River. A walkway leads you to the Alaskan Grill. There is a nice gift shop in the office. We would stay here again if in the area.

Rate shown for a 30 amp back-in site. Office staff fast and efficient. Park roads and sites are gravel. Our site was a not very level back-in. It would take at most a 30 foot RV. Most of the sites had tables, except ours. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV had 12 channels. Some channels were fuzzy and a few off the air at times. Wi-Fi was good enough to download pictures to the internet. We would stay here again if in the area.

Friendly staff who managed to save me a site at the last minute (for July at least make reservations). Park roads and sites are gravel. Our site was a level pull-through. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, but plenty of channels off the air. Wi-Fi was the only disappointment. Internet access provided by Tengo and it was terrible. It took forever to log on and it was too slow to work with so I gave up. There was an alternative though. If unable to use the Tengo connection there was an office connection that could be accessed near the office or laundromat. I didn't bother to use it so no comment on effectiveness. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Entrance can get congested with RVs parked for registration. Park roads paved and sites are gravel/grass. Our site was a level gravel back-in. Water connection was on the fence at the back of the site. Sewer outlet was higher than the motorhome drain. Wife complained about a lot of noise coming from other sites in the middle of the night. No cable TV, but plenty of TV channels off the air. Wi-Fi was hit and miss. When on it was good enough for e-mail and browsing, but slow at times. Not much choice in this city, so would probably come here again if in the area.
