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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

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.

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.

Date of Stay:

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!

Date of Stay:

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.

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.

Date of Stay:

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.
