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.

This place is all about the view. Many of the sites have a great view of Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains. There is even an active volcano in the distance. Our site was a gravel back-in and not level. A table is included at some sites. Electric and water connections were okay, but the sewer outlet was higher than the motorhome drain. No cable TV, but 7 channels off the air. Wi-Fi worked fine. The office gives out 2 shower tokens for every night stay. They have a small gift shop in the office. For the view alone, we would stay here again.

Friendly staff who helped make our stay more enjoyable. Site was a level gravel back-in. Big rigs may find maneuvering here a bit tight, although there were several staying here. All utilities worked fine, but sewer outlet was a bit awkward to connect. Table and fire grill included at site. No cable TV, but one channel over the air. Wi-Fi signal good enough for e-mail and browsing. Small laundry with one washer and one dryer that is used on the honor system by paying the office $5 for wash and dry each load. Fish cleaning table provided. Gift shop and specialty coffees available. Walking distance to the Anchor Point beach. We would stay again if in the area.

Lucky for us due to our size we got the last site. It was a level gravel pull-in. Site included a table. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, but around 10 channels off the air. Wi-Fi was strong enough for downloading pictures. Nearby airport with some noise during the day. We would stay here again if in the area.

We were in the Resurrection section which has electric and water connections. Payment was by an automated pay station where cash or credit cards were accepted. The vehicle plate number (not the site number) must be input for proper registration. The other sections are dry sites. Our site was a gravel back-in and nowhere near level even after using all my boards. I did notice some sites next to the walking path looked fairly level. Some sites had tables, although ours did not. Electric and water worked fine. No sewer, but dump station nearby. Pay showers. No cable TV or Wi-Fi. Found a couple of off the air TV channels, but nothing local. Great view of the waterfront with cruise ships at the docks and snow covered mountains across the bay. We would stay here again if in the area.

Rate shown includes charge for 1 extra person. Site was a gravel pull-through and not level. Grass between the sites. One area near the road had all grass sites. Table was at site. No fire rings, but there was a big one near the office. All pull-throughs past the office were on a upward slope. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, but around 10 channels off the air. Wi-Fi was very weak and slow. Bathrooms and laundry were clean, but dated and worn. I would consider another park next time if in the area.
