We had reservations for an "A" site. There aren't a lot of them in the campground, so suggest you arrive early in the day to make sure you have a good selection. (Reminder: Your reservation assures you a space, but you still pick your own site after you get here.) We ended up with a great site that had lots of space. Neighbors were hard to find because the sites are situated in such a manner that you really have to look hard to see them. People were very respectful and followed the rules regarding the use of generators. There are plenty of trees to provide shade, but each site has some sunny spots, which makes it nice when you want to sit outside and the temperature is cool. The warm sun feels really good. AT&T worked well for cell phone coverage and Verizon MiFi worked most of the time.

Every site has at least one tree, which is good for shade. The park is clean and the owners work on keeping it that way. It's really well-suited for smaller units. Sites are side by side and there isn't much room for slides. The trees, normally a plus, make matters worse. Our 5th wheel is 32 feet with 3 slides. We had to try different sites and do some maneuvering to fit in a site so we were able to open our slides. That said, if you have a smaller camper, this is a great place stop on the way to/from Fairbanks.

This is a wonderful campground not far from Fairbanks on the road to Chena Hot Springs. Sights are very large and well-maintained. Grass is mowed around the sites making the sites seem even larger than they are. There is space for even large motor homes. There is a campground host on site. All sites have plenty of shade and sun. There is well-water available in the campground. Signs suggest you may want to boil your water if you stay here. We would definitely camp here again if in the area.

Nice little campground just inside the city of Delta Junction. Campground host was very friendly and even came to our door one morning to let us know moose were in the area. The site was quite large and gave our dog plenty of room to relax and watch the squirrels. Only problem was the size and number of trash cans. There was only one can and it was just a large barrel. Not much disposal available for several campers.

This park is a short distance from Dawson City. It's very quiet and a good place to stop if you are planning to board the ferry across the Yukon the next day. Sites are good sized and the park ranger is very friendly and helpful. Firewood is provided by the Yukon Government at no cost. Campground is open from May through September.

Date of Stay:

We were here early in the season, so the campground wasn't full. This allowed the owners to leave an open campsite between us an our neighbor, so we had plenty of room to move around in. Even where the campers were side by side, there was still room to sit outside and enjoy the unseasonably warm weather. Services were all good, including the Wi-Fi. We had great luck using it, but I can see where it might be slow if the campground is full. Still, we had no problems and often had both computers going while we were in the camper. Other campers in the park were very friendly, including those who were camped there for the season. We will stay here again if we find ourselves in Dawson City.

We camped in a site that had a terrific view of the lake. It was large and our dog had plenty of room to explore the area. Fire wood was free. Also, we camped here early in the season before the park officially opened, so our site was free. Regular price is $12.00 CAN ($9.60 US at current exchange rates.) Park has a boat launch and there are a few campsites next to the launch. Water must be hand pumped and boiled, but is available. Overall, a great place to stay and we would definitely camp here again.

Date of Stay:

Large shaded sites not far from the lake. Sites are spaced in such a way that you have to look hard to see your neighbors (except for the pull throughs). Signs say water must be boiled for at least 2 minutes before drinking, etc. It also must be hand-pumped. Firewood is free at the Yukon Government campgrounds.

Date of Stay:

Another great British Columbia Provincial Park. The campsites are spaced apart so that everyone has their own room. View of the lake and mountain is awesome. Not many trees, so it could be hot in the summer months. Also, water must be hand pumped, so it is not easy to fill your tanks.

Nice little park that has sites that back up to the Buckinghorse River. Most sites are side by side, but still have enough space for a picnic table. Park is clean and well-maintained. Gravel sites are quite level. Park is open mid-May to the end of September. Great stopover for those travelling the Alaska Highway. We would definitely stop here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Great campground. We had full service and a pull-through site. Sites are well spaced and the smell of the pine trees is wonderful. Park staff is very friendly and take the time to explain things about the park before sending you off to your campsite. Roads inside the campground are very bumpy and could use repair.

Date of Stay:

Atmosphere in the campground is good with lots of tall pine trees and a river flowing next to the campground. Campsites are side-by-side, which is okay if you are travelling with someone and want to share your site. We prefer having a single site and there are a few of them in the campground, but not many. Electricity was good and we had good cell phone reception on Bell Canada. No TV though and only one radio station, so bring books or games or something to pass the time in the evenings.

Date of Stay:

Nice little city campground. Spots are spacious and away from the highway, so it's very quiet. There are both back-in and pull-through sites. AT&T and Verizon worked well for phone and Internet. Most sites are level although there is a bit of a hill outside your door on a couple of the pull-throughs. This is a great place to stop on your way to/from Canada. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a great spot for fishermen. The campsites here are right on Hauser Lake. Campers can even rent boat slips so they don't need to take the boat out of the water when they aren't in it. The only problem here is that there are 2 campsites per space, so you are really close to your neighbors if the campground is busy. We were here during a slow period, so had plenty of space. This campground is very busy in the summer, so reservations are a good idea. Park rangers are excellent and even got us an adapter so we could hook up our hose to put water on.

Bakers Hole is a great campground if you are visiting Yellowstone. They have electricity, the sites are spacious and the hosts are very helpful. Cell coverage is not good on AT&T, but our Internet (Verizon) worked well. Will definitely stay here again when we are in the Yellowstone area. If you can, make reservations early as this park sells out in summer.
