This park needs some serious TLC. First of all check in was very pleasant. The gentlemen behind the counter was friendly and welcoming. The store offered lots of items and there's a great sandwich counter. The hook ups at our site worked fine. We were close to our neighbor, who thankfully was alone and quiet. Restrooms and laundry need updating badly. The overall look of the park is old and needs a lawn mower and some sprucing up. Needs to get rid of the junk hanging around. It's very close to the highway and we found it extremely noisey. This park has real good potential but don't see myself staying there again. Not worth the cost.

Stayed here on the way to Alaska and also on the return trip 3 months later. All the sites are spacious, which include back-ins and pull thrus. Easy access off the Cassier. Roads are good thru the park. Our RV is 32 ft plus tow, no problem fitting. The lake is gorgeous. You'd think you were in the Caribbean. There is enough of trees to create privacy between sites. Our pull thru site was level, lake front and had picnic table and fire pit. No hookups. Extremely peaceful and beautiful. No bugs!

We stayed one week for $300. ($50/night, 7th night free). Pretty pleased with that rate considering after a day of sightseeing, fishing, shopping or sailing we came back to a quiet, full hook up sight with amazing views. Also, it is about 8 - 10 degrees warmer on that bluff than ocean side Homer Spit with all its wind. It is about 4 miles from Homer Spit and not a large, crowded campground. There were good restaurants on that road along with a market. We were on an end site (17) so we had some privacy also. We found restrooms and laundry nice and clean. Loved it here.

Donations accepted. The park is right near the fairgrounds. There are lots of trees and sights are all different sizes and not necessarily all level. We were able to find a suitable sight for our coach and tow. A police officer drove thru and we questioned him about safety. Said never a problem in the park and it was patrolled often. There were four other campers there. It is a small park and we felt safe. Perfect for overnight and passing through. We also saw lots of deer.

Stayed here in May on the way to Alaska and again in August. We found the campground to be in a beautiful mountainous setting, very neat and gracious hosts. The gentlemen brought us to our site as a courtesy and made sure everything was to our likings. The site was level and neighbors would have been a little close, but with the park not full, we had no one on either side. The grounds are well maintained and lots of room for walking. We saw three elk. We used the laundry, very clean as well as restrooms and showers. Stayed three days to tour the area. Would definitely return when in the area again. Wifi worked fine at their pavillion. As stated, they pump out for free. It was a nice surprise knowing we didn't have to use the dump station upon departure.

Love this quiet campground! There are pull thru sites as well as back-ins. We had full hook up on hard packed gravel, level, grass and picnic table. Not too close to neighbors. Excellent washers and dryers. Some of the cleanest showers and bathrooms we have seen. Manicured lawns and gardens. An elderly couple own and operate this facility by themselves. The woman brought us apple squares made from her fruit trees and even found my lost earring while cleaning under the washing machine with a Swiffer! Highly recommend for quiet, cleanliness, beautiful surroundings, and convenience to Vanderhoof for errands and necessities.

Had water and electric only on an end sight, so we were fortunate enough to have some pretty good privacy with the parallel parking. We did not have reservations and was lucky to get a site for three nights in high season. We did check in Sunday morning when lots of campers were leaving. Restrooms were reasonably clean considering there are not that many for such a big campground. Views are very nice and we had elk walking thru the campground. Check in was friendly and efficient. We also stayed here in May on our way to Alaska and the campground had lots of vacancies! There is a couple of dump stations we didn't need. There are also sites with sewer.

We called one week ahead of time and were able to grab a cancellation for three days! Stayed in a large, deep, back in site, I think #18. Our chairs were positioned to look out at the foliage around the river offering complete privacy. The campground was full but very quiet. No hookups but we were able to run our generator during appropriate hours.

We stayed two different times during the month at this campground. It is a forested campground with nice big gravel sites. It is kept very neat and the hosts always seem to be around working and checking things. The are fire rings and tables. No hookups but generator hours. Quite a few pull thrus. Being in Cooper Landing, we went to the Princess Lodge for dinner, about 5 miles away. Lovely outdoor deck to sit and have a cocktail admiring the view! The campground was full so get there by noon and you should have no problem. We seldom make reservations.

Agree with the previous review. This is another great Alaska State Park. Site was big, neat, level and a nice grassy section. There was a host present. Vault toilets were clean. There were only three other sites taken during the week so it was quiet. We stayed three nights. Don't miss the hot springs and the road along the way has lots of moose.

Date of Stay:

Nice clean showers, laundry and friendly/helpful personnel. Did not like any of the sites because it's parking on rocks. Watch your step or you could sprain an ankle. Site was so tight our lawn chairs were placed up against our tow vehicle and barely fit. It was ridiculous. Stayed one night.

If you don't need full hookups, this park is great. There are water spigots to fill your tanks if needed. There are about 40 sites, 10 of which are pull thrus. There are also a few double sites. The campground is laid out in a loop with the pull thrus in the center. All sites are very big and offer plenty of space and privacy. The vault toilets are kept incredibly clean. This park is also the park headquarters for the Alaskan State Parks so things are kept quite nice and neat. You can walk to the river for salmon fishing. Highly recommend.

We only stayed here to do some things in the city of Whitehorse. We couldn't fit in to our first assigned site, 35. RVs were parked so close together that cars, truck and boats were parked along the road making it very difficult to maneuver. Back to the office where the young man didn't show a lot of concern and assigned us another site. It was small, back in, but we managed. Restrooms/showers were very clean. Nice gift shop. If you like being parked on top of your neighbor and hearing their conversations, then this place is for you. We didn't care for it. Did not stop here on our return trip.

This is a nice and scenic campground. We stayed June 4 in site 57 which was back-in, had electric, and water front with mountain views. All very nice. However, we could not sit out and enjoy the views and pleasant weather. The mosquitos were unbelievable! I have never seen so many mosquitos in my life! They swarmed our screen door, perhaps 100 of them in a matter of seconds. We made a fire hoping the smoke would keep them away. That worked for about 15 minutes. It was an unpleasant stay here for us. We left very early the next morning....so much so that we were settled in by 2:30 at the next gorgeous Provincial Park in BC where we sat out, walked and cooked outside. Meziadin Lake is a lovely campground, just didn't work out well for us.

Well kept state park, self check in, no signs of a host. The vault toilets were clean. There are a few pull thru sites. We stayed in a back in site, rather large and by the river. Some highway noise but not bad. Good for an overnight and close to restaurants, stores, markets and laundry in Tok. About 5 other RVs came in around 5o'clock.
