About Danno

We are retired full time RVers. I was in the USAF for 30 years & we decided to travel before choosing a place to live. We had a 40 ft toy hauler (5er) for 2 years & now have a 35 ft 5er. My ratings basis: Lot of space between units, easy in/out, well placed utils that work, long level sites, amenities commensurate with price, no frustrations/harassment, family friendly, no trashy permanents, no rogue tree branches, & wide paved interior roads (e.g. no dust). Happy trails!

From looking at satellite views, I expected this park to be an older campground with tight sites among trees. I was pleasantly surprised! The campground is old but it is well run and immaculate. I had a 70' long level gravel easy in/out pull thru with plush grass on either side. Sites are well spaced about 15-20' apart. Interior roads are gravel and easy to navigate. Most of the park back-ins looked easy in/out too, especially for smaller rigs. Large mature cottonwood trees make this a beautiful park. Satellite access is iffy due to trees. They have cable TV but it's the digital/analog thing so you have to make a deposit to use their digital boxes if desired. OTA reception is good this close to Calgary. Rogers cell coverage is good with LTE data. They charge $2/day per dog.

Excellent Lion's campground! Rates vary by site type. We had a 30A W/E gravel back in on the north side which met our needs. The most popular sites for short termers are probably the north side 50A pull thrus which were about 70' long with 20' of grass between sites. On the park south side, the treed sites are older & well spaced with many suitable for big rigs. I saw some as long as 100'. Interior roads are easy with no tree issues. The older south side sites have an unkempt appearance as the tree underbrush is wild and overgrown between sites. But that adds privacy for those sites too. The back-ins looked pretty easy as the gravel road was generally 15' wide. On the far south side, they had grass back-ins for small rigs. All sites looked very level. Bike paths connect to the park at both ends and take you all over the town. Laundry was adequate. They charge $1/day per dog. Park wifi worked but was limited. Rogers had weak cell phone coverage with LTE data. My Dish Trav'ler only picked up satellite 119 despite clear skies so we're still too far north for reliable satellite. There's no cable TV but we picked up several good channels OTA from Edmonton. Family friendly with new playground & alcohol restrictions.

I did not have a good experience at this park due to the "crazy lady" owner. She hates dogs and goes off on a tirade at the mention of a dog. Sign on the wall threatens $100 fine for dog poop. She charges an outrageous $10 extra per night for dogs and demands that owners walk their dogs off park property in the woods. I told her she should just refuse service to pet owners instead of treating customers poorly. She peeps over her fence watching you walk your dog and even followed some folks around. Then she walked around the park in the evening chastising folks for running their air conditioners. She said there was nothing wrong with her power, just people abusing their 30A connection. This lady is crazy and needs to find another line of work! Besides her oddities, the park is okay. Pull thrus are very long & big rig suitable as others have mentioned. Back-ins are about 50' long and relatively easy in/out. Cable TV is useless with only 1 channel and OTA TV is limited too. TELUS had a good cell signal with LTE & sometimes 3G data signal. Satellite reception is iffy due to trees. I can't recommend this park due to the owner.

This is a very nice campground in a beautiful location overlooking the river. Back-ins are easy in/out with a very wide travel lane. Sites are level gravel & big rig suitable at 60'+ long with 15'+ between sites. Some sites are shared pedestals so a coach might nose in & back out, which is okay as you can see the river better that way. Expect some highway noise as Hwy 16 goes right beside the campground. There is also a train track with frequent traffic just across the river. The campground has a free RV/vehicle wash which is a very nice touch. Their lower level bathrooms are a work in progress & barely suitable for use (e.g. showers plumbed but not functioning). I didn't get a chance to visit bathrooms in the main building but I'd guess they were fine. Wifi advertised as free & unlimited. Cable TV worked. TELUS had a good cell signal. Satellite reception was iffy due to trees along edge of campground.

This park is your best option in Stewart/Hyder. Sites are level gravel back-ins with a shared pedestal between each site. So you are very close to one neighbor and 20' or more from your other neighbor. Sites are big rig suitable at 60-65' long. Part of the park has a great view of the mountains and part has a view of nothing but trees. TELUS cell coverage is 1 bar for phone with LTE data. Coverage was good enough for phone calls and stronger the closer you went to Stewart. There's no cell coverage in Hyder if you go see the bears or stay at the little RV park over there. Cable TV worked okay. Satellite won't work due to nearby mountains and trees. Utilities worked fine. All sites are 30 amp. They advertise "free WiFi" but that really only means "if" you can receive it and only for 2 hours with limited downloads. I thought the threat of $50 fine and/or expulsion for rinsing your vehicle was rude and an obvious ploy to get you to use their pay RV wash.

Sites are level gravel and most are about 60' long with 15' between sites. There's a few immature trees and limited grass to break up the gravel. There's no cell phone, no cable TV, and trees might prevent satellite. Park wifi wouldn't connect. There's a pay RV wash that's located in the rocks and mud off to one side. Petro Canada nearby has fuel. This park is okay for an overnight but it's no gem. Owner is fanatical about no washing or rinsing, even just to clean your windshield. Go slow or you'll miss the somewhat hidden turn in to the park.

This park is okay for a night or two. You are off the grid with no cell phone, virtually no wifi, & no cable TV. Wifi is only available beside the office and very limited. You might be able to get satellite TV. Sites are relatively level, gravel, & Big Rig suitable at about 65' long. There's about 15' between sites. Laundry is expensive at $3 wash & $3 dry. Pay showers are available. There's an RV wash for 2 minutes at 2 Loonies. Campground sells fuel but for anything else, you'll need to trek to Watson Lake.

For the Yukon, this is a pretty nice RV park. Our site was a 50' long level gravel back-in with FHU 30A. Site was about 16' wide allowing room for slideouts on both sides of RV. The park has a variety of back ins and pull thrus with some sites large enough for big rigs. The interior gravel roads are generally wide enough for easy back in although it might depend on the site and your backing skill. Utilities worked fine. Most sites have partial to full shade. Shrubs generally separate sites. Some trees and shrubs need trimming to stay off of the rigs. Park wifi is useless. TELUS has a 2 bar cell signal with LTE data. Park has limited cable TV with 1 US channel and about 15 Canadian channels. Our cable signal was scratchy but viewable. Having recently stayed at both this campground and nearby Pioneer, I like Hi Country better.

We stayed as part of a group and the owner went above board to make sure we had a good time. He fixed a very nice meal for us and even had a singer from Whitehorse come to entertain. Others staying in the park joined for the meal and entertainment. I don't know how often or if he does this if the large groups aren't camping. Sites were okay. We had long 65'+ reasonably level gravel pull thrus. All sites slope a little side to side. RVs were barely able to open slides due to tight parking. But sites are still easy in/out with very wide gravel interior roads. We had 30A & low pressure water. The park has a sewer dump but he discourages use since contents have to be hauled elsewhere due to permafrost. Park allowed rig washing which is nice considering the thick dirt you'll have coming from Tok. Bell had a strong cell signal and LTE data.

Although I don't normally like "adults only" parks, this one does have its perks. All sites are level gravel and rigs up to 45' could fit. Everyone is around a large gravel circle so your only restriction is to not block your neighbor. Rigs are about 15' apart. Some sites are specifically for small rigs while many would fit any size. The open gravel middle area makes for easy back ins. Park wifi worked fine and Verizon had a good 3-bar LTE signal. Satellite is very unlikely to work due to latitude and mountains but they provided a digital converter box if you can get to the coax hookups behind your TV. They also allowed us to wash vehicles which is an added plus. Water pressure was occasionally as low as 20 psi (not due to vehicle washing at the time), but otherwise, utilities worked fine. All sites are 30A. We'd stay here again.

This park is one of the nicest we've found in Alaska. Pull thru sites are level grass with full hook ups (30A) and about 60-65' long. Your neighbor is still too close with 12 feet between RVs. Most of the gravel interior roads are double wide making for easy back ins around the edge and easy in/out for pull thrus. We picked up major network TV channels over the air which is good since there is no cable and satellite won't work here. Laundry was big enough with $2 washers & $1.25 dryers. It took 2 cycles to fully dry clothes though. They sell propane but Fred Meyer sells it cheaper. Verizon had a good 3 bar voice plus LTE data signal. Park wifi was very slow during normal usage hours.

This is a very good RV park but not a "luxury" park as they advertise. Sites are level gravel about 55' long with 15' of weedy grass between RVs. The interior roads are gravel and wide enough to make sites easy in/out. Some sites have sewer & some have cable, which worked okay with 12 channels. They have a few 50A and the rest are 30A. Satellite TV won't work this far north. Park wifi worked intermittently. Verizon had a 3G signal with both voice and data working okay. As you drive towards Seward, the Verizon data signal dies off. This park has a nice laundry plus a meeting room you can schedule. On the negative side, the road to the park is now paved which is a nice improvement, but they didn't pave the last 200 yards. It's full of potholes that will jar your rig. Then when you enter the park, you find more potholes. The park should have paid for paving to their entrance or at the very least have the potholes filled periodically with gravel. The potholes are full of muddy water when it rains and the park is adamant that you can't use their water to clean off the mud. Finally, there's a nice river adjacent to the park but they planted tall shrubs so you can only hear the river and not see it. We'd stay here again but please finish paving the road!

This is a good RV park and appeared better than those we saw on the Homer spit. Gravel sites are hardly "spacious" and most slope both back to front and side to side. The pull thrus are shared by two RVs butt-to-butt on a 75' site so each RV gets about 38'. I detest sharing a pull-thru with another RV only a couple feet out your rear window. Sites are tiered down the hill so you are slightly higher than the RV on your ocean side with adequate room for slideouts and about 15' between RVs. I saw several busses with their front wheels off the ground seeking level. The side to side site slope wasn't excessive. Utilities worked fine. Cable TV only works if you get their digital box (deposit required) but off the air signals are good as another reviewer noted. Dish satellite couldn't connect: still too far north despite open skies. Verizon voice worked well but data was 3G and barely worked at all here or anywhere in Homer. Park wifi worked okay depending on time of day and number of folks using it.

This park is conveniently located in an Anchorage suburb fairly close to anything you'll need. Unfortunately, it's also nestled in among a large area of mobile homes so be crime aware. Sites are level gravel & short for today's rigs. My back in was barely 35' long so I had to park my pickup between my RV & my neighbor's with just inches to spare. The pull thrus are slightly longer at perhaps 40' with about 12' & some grass between rigs. Tow cars are scattered helter skelter as folks look for space. The interior road was paved and wide enough to make back ins fairly easy. No cable TV at our site but you'll get several channels over the air. Park has wifi that works when it wants to. The laundry was very large & reasonable at $2.00 washer. Verizon had a strong signal. Overall, this park met our needs despite tight parking.

This is a good RV park located 10 miles from Denali. Sites are gravel and vary from small Class C to Big Rig size. Ours was 55' long and barely 14' wide with about 6' between your unit's slideout and your neighbor's. The pull thrus are easy in/out and some of the back-ins are easy. Some are a little tight depending on rig size and where others have parked. They have cable TV that works which is good since you won't likely get satellite this far north. Park wifi worked okay. They will walk your dog for a fee while you take a long Denali bus trip. Verizon had a strong 4-bar LTE signal.
