Grand View Cafe & RV Park, Glacier View, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Grandview had a grand view, but dirty restrooms and expensive showers that came on and off with the laundry machines. Staff seemed tired and over worked. Sites were very close to each other and road noise constant. I wish we would have stayed somewhere else. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Halibut Campground, Anchor Point, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

This spot was a nice state park with plenty of space between the sites. The camp hosts from Wisconsin were super duper and great at spotting moose. No mosquitoes and no wildfires! The beach, boat launching, and eagles were awesome beyond words. We stayed 3 days. The only downside were PIT toilets and no hookups. We camped at Halibut Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tractors launch fishing boats into the wild surf with teenagers hanging off the back; it was great entertainment. Didn't meet a grumpy person during our stay here. In fact some cool locals (only U Penn Grad to do the Iditarod) gave us some signs as souvenirs. I counted 50 eagles one morning and saw some rare shorebirds. I really really liked this place. There is a great laundromat with a strange little snack bar to take an awesome shower in the small town strip.

Mariner Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Other than the frightening knife wielding man dressed like Daniel Boone or the naked European tourist, it was a good city park. The sites were literally a parking lot next to the beach. The view of the inlet and mountains was unbelievable; the beach with long tides was kind of an adventure to walk on. There were portapotties and no showers. Seriously there was a knife wielding man and a naked guy from Prague. We moved on after one night so we could to get away from knife guy. The little old lady next to us said not to worry that she was packing. We camped at Mariner Park in a Travel Trailer.

Seward Waterfront Park, Seward, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the wild west! Not quite sure how we got our spot. I think we played musical chairs (trailers) faster than others. It was cheap, gravel, and had an amazing view of Resurrection Bay. Good place to hang out, stroll along the waterfront, and people watch. No mosquitoes or wildfire smoke! We camped at Seward Waterfront Park in a Travel Trailer.

The cruise ships have ruined this town. It used to be so quaint, but seems to be turning into a tourist trap. That being said, I recommend the all day Wildlife watching and Glacier boat tour to Kenai Fijords National Park (3 whale species, 30 bird species, otters, seals) it was unbelievable. Restaurants that we tried were very expensive and not very good overall.

Eagles Rest RV Park, Valdez, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Despite being a big gravel lot, our stay was excellent. Most of our fellow campers were fisher folks or boaters from Fairbanks-great group to spend time with. The bathrooms were clean and very well maintained; they had a nice little laundromat with an excellent reading exchange. The funny friendly greeter guys in the golf cart gave us a hose and encouraged us to wash off the Alcan from our trailer and ourselves. The view was really pretty and you are a quick walk to town. Good spot to see Valdez. No smoke and no mosquitoes! We camped at Eagles Rest RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Valdez is a cool fishing and marina town. There's a great ice cream shack to sit and meet locals. The area has very nice hiking trails and wildlife viewing. Locals are actually nice to tourists. There's a Safeway and an awesome hamburger place right next to the RV Park. The fishermen cut the halibut and catches on the dock. It was super cool to observe.

Pioneer RV Park, Whitehorse, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

I really didn't like this RV Park. We were placed in the upper loop and the site was occupied by a spare vehicle from a grumpy looking group. The store clerk gave us a different spot. She wasn't unfriendly, but not friendly either. Our site was muddy and the pit toilet was scary. Road and airplane noise were unpleasant. WiFi was only for checking email. I wish we had stayed someplace else. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mountain Shadow RV Park and Campground, Iskut, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

The owners have been in business a long time, but the RV park looks like it is brand new. The owners couldn't have been nicer. I really appreciated their attention to detail. They Restrooms were clean and private. We wanted a grassy spot for the kids, so they gave us a big pull through for our travel trailer. The lake and mountain views are spectacular. This was one of the best campsites on our trip to AK! If we could do it again, we would have stayed a few nights. We camped at Mountain Shadow RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A significant portion of the park was under construction. The bathrooms were clean. The Most of the people at the RV park were from the Ferry Dock. It was OK for a night. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rainey Creek Municipal Campground, Stewart, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

The park was not very crowded and pleasant overall. The young men working there were very friendly and kept up the older restrooms that could use some updating. WiFi was in a cutely decorated picnic pavilion. There grounds were a lush heavily forested (rainforest) with a moderate amount of insects; we set up our bug tent. One other downside was that the campground shares a boundary with houses. We sat in our bug tent and watched the dogs in backyards for entertainment. We camped at Rainey Creek Municipal Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stewart is really off the beaten path in early June! I felt like I was in the show Northern Exposure. Visit the awesome marsh boardwalk in the town to see wildlife. There weren't any Bears at the NFS Bear Board Walk (note to self-no fish in June!), but it was neat to go to the Tongass NF. The golf course closed (rats, we were on a mission to play mud hole golf courses all the way to AK!).

Riverside Municipal RV Park & Campground, Smithers, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground is in a park on a pleasant grassy open field surrounded by forest next to raging river. There is one public restroom available to all campers (including a pack of girl guides), but it stayed cleaner than expected. Fellow campers were super friendly folks mostly from surrounding towns taking a holiday. This was a great stopover. We camped at Riverside Municipal RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada), Jasper National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

According to the friendly check in person, this is the biggest campground in No. America. Check in went fairly quickly, but had a very long line of vehicles. I would definitely make reservations, if possible. I walked to the front of the cars and checked in by foot. There was a dorm/military like house for showers that was clean but not particularly pleasant. The elk were starting to calve and wander around the camp sites to avoid bears which is cool but scary. There were reports of bear in the campground. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

There is a very large laundromat and nice smallish but well stocked grocery store in Jasper. This is an area of spectacular natural beauty with great hiking and wildlife viewing. Nice coffee shops and restaurants in Jasper to hang out in during the rain storms that we experienced. We saw quite a few bear on the roads.

Kicking Horse Campground (Parks Canada), Yoho National Park, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

There was a fast raging river right next to the site which was probably dangerous but neat to listen to. The campground is rustic yet pretty. The restrooms were not very clean and overused. There were a lot of folks from Europe at this campground in rented RV's. I didn't find them to be very friendly and they had very different attitudes about bathroom etiquette and cleanliness. Not a lot of following the "Golden Rule" going on at Kicking Horse. We were smoked like sausages by the folks in the rented RV in the site next to us. The campground filled so we couldn't move, and they wouldn't stop burning smokey wet wood. Cough! We camped at Kicking Horse Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Get provisions before you get to the National Park (little stores and restaurants are pricey). Visit Emerald Lake and walk the loop. Lake Louise was pretty but very touristy; saw a Clark's Nutcracker in the parking lot. The passes of the Yoho hadn't opened for the season yet, so no fossils for us.

COLD showers! Burr. The sites were rustic with no hook ups. However, there were spectacular breathtaking panoramic views. We set up a screen tent and hung out and were awed. Scrubby plants create privacy around your site, but are also great cover for wildlife. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Deer Park Campground, Buffalo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

The staff was friendly and had an ice cream social for travelers. It was fun to talk to fellow campers. The area was buggy when we arrived but bugs abated when the wind came up. It had just poured rain so the grounds were a bit muddy in places. It was an interesting and pleasant, and pretty spot. It was a place to stay for the night. We camped at Deer Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The staff were very friendly. The trees blocked the highway noise which was nice. Water wasn't working, but they didn't charge for it. There were lots of families and a very cold pool. There were quite a few mosquitoes and lots of smoke from surrounding campsites. Sites were a bit close to each other. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.
