Williwaw Campground - USFS, Whittier, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

Wonderful place to stay with good views, level sites and great attractions close-by. The Blue Ice trail runs parallel to the campground and offers wonderful hiking and biking opportunities. Campground hosts were friendly bot times we stayed there this year. We camped at Williwaw Campground - USFS in a Motorhome.

Lake Shel-Oole Campground, Shelby, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a self-service city park campground. You drive in past the ball fields, turn left and you will see a big parking lot camping area followed by some nice pull-thru and back-in sites situated on a tree lined loop. The pull-thru sites are on the right and and are on the side of a big park area in the middle where the restrooms are. The 30 amp electric worked well. No sewer hook-up but there was a dump station. As other reviews noted, water hook-ups are not where you'd expect. We camped at Lake Shel-Oole Campground in a Motorhome.

Golden Nugget RV Park, Anchorage, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

After reading the other reviews, I am thinking most of those were written by folks who have not done much camping in Alaska private campgrounds. Compared to most of the other private campgrounds we have stayed at in Alaska (which we try to minimize), this one is a decent value. We were in 191 along the back fence, which was a level 30A back-in with room for our 35 foot rig and tow car. The bathrooms and showers were clean and functional, the laundry was reasonable (for Alaska) with plenty of machines that worked, and there was plenty of shopping close by. We camped at Golden Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

Matanuska River Park, Palmer, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the upper campground - grass sites with 30A power. Water and dump stations included in the fee. The only downside was it took a bit of effort to level-out as the jacks sank into the grass. Very nice manager. She even offered us fresh rhubarb from the great garden they have. We camped at Matanuska River Park in a Motorhome.

Denali Viewpoint South, Trapper Creek, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This is actually a pull-off on the Parks Highway that the State has designated as a campground as well (so they can charge you to camp for the night...). Staying here is all about the views of Denali. We stayed here in 2012 and this was the only place we actually saw the whole mountain since it is closer then the road within the National Park. There is water via a hand-pump and there are 2 pit toilets available. We camped at Denali Viewpoint South in a Motorhome.

Teklanika Campground (NPS Campground), Denali National Park, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

If you love being right in the middle of wilderness with limited traffic, can live without hook-ups and with limited generator use for a few days (3 night minimum here) then this is the place for you! We love it here. It was our second stay as we had stayed here in 2012 also and knew we wanted to come back! First off, the fact that you can drive 30 miles into the park and pick up the buses from there is a huge plus since you save an hour each way on your daily excursions. Even better, you get a shuttle pass good for your entire stay for less than a 1 day shuttle to Wonder Lake. To top it off, the scenery, friendly hosts, and nightly ranger talks are all great! We camped at Teklanika Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

River's Edge Resort, Fairbanks, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the second time that we have stayed several nights in Fairbanks and use Pioneer Park with its more convenient location for most of the stay and then River's Edge for a night to dump, do laundry, wash the vehicles, and clean up. This park serves that need but is fairly expensive for what you get... Our site was a back-in along the fence and was touted as being 39 feet, yet we had to loosen the mirror of our Class A and move it against the window so that it did not stick out. Our cable did not work, but we were able to pick up several OTA stations. The wireless was terribly slow, but we were able to use our AT&T wireless data just fine. The car/RV wash was badly needed and it was affordable and appreciated! We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Pioneer Park, Fairbanks, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second time staying here and we both love it for the location. As noted in the other reviews, t really is just a parking lot with very large spaces for RVs where camping is allowed for up to 5 nights for $12 a night. They d have multiple spigots for fresh water but no dump . The spaces are large enough for a Class A with a tow vehicle. Pioneer Park has bathrooms open 24 hours that are basic but clean. The Park is also a great place for a quiet morning or evening walk before they open or after they close. During opening hours, they have restaurants, a decent tourist show every night, a salmon bake, mini-golf, etc. When we were there, they had the midnight sun run, so we were able to see the runners (many in costume) end the race within the park. It was quite fun. The location also serves as a great base for exploring Fairbanks. We camped at Pioneer Park in a Motorhome.

Tok RV Village, Tok, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a nice park, just not worth the money for what you get. We received a 30 AMP site that was not that level, but we were able to level out. In its defense though, the park is well kept, there were 2 laundry rooms, and the staff were friendly. There was wi-fi, but it was limited to an hour and was fairly slow. ATT wireless worked well. We camped at Tok RV Village in a Motorhome.

Dawson Peaks Resort and RV Park, Teslin, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

The office and restaurant are closed and there are no services of any kind. The rates ($20 CAD) are posted on a sign and you put your money in an envelope and drop it in a box at the office. The sites and hookups were all in decent shape and were fairly level. Even though the road was fairly close there were enough trees between the campground and road to provide a good buffer. We camped at Dawson Peaks Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park, Liard River, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one campground you should make reservations at or be there before early afternoon as it fills up every day in the summer, we were told. There is a big overflow parking lot across the street if it is full, though (same price). The campground has a small entrance, but seems to handles all size rigs. Charge of $26 CAD includes access to the hot springs. The campground is super clean and well-maintained. All camp sites are back-in. The people at check-in are helpful and friendly. This is dry camping only. There is water connection near the entrance but it is in a bad place to fill your rig as you will be blocking traffic since the spigot sits right next to the exit yet you will need to get it going in as it is on the wrong side when going out. The spaces are generally large, gravel and fairly level. Roads were dusty. Some spaces are near the Alaska Highway, but the traffic seems to stop about sundown. There is no Wi-Fi and AT&T cell service was nonexistent. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

It's all about the Hot Springs! If you walk about 3/4 mile from your campsite you will find the hot springs. There are restrooms above the hot springs pool but no facilities at the springs except men and women changing rooms and open storage for your clothes.

Sikanni River Campground & RV Park, Pink Mountain, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We were impressed by the service we received here -- we tried to stay at a campground about 15 miles before reaching this one but was told it was full. The front desk person then offered to take us to there sister campground and lead the way in his pick-up. When we got there we were greeted by a friendly front-desk person and were assigned an electric only site right near the river. The site took some work to level off but it was fine for a night. We camped at Sikanni River Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We did not plan on staying in Grand Cache but a mud-slide prevented us from going further. We were able to get a nice level site and did laundry, which was very reasonable and convenient. Men's restroom was flooded due to the heavy rain when we arrived, but they had a local tradesman over very quickly to resolve the issue.a plum. We camped at Grande Cache Municipal Campground in a Motorhome.

After Banff, this campground was very average. The access roads were full of potholes. The site was spacious but not very level. We booked for 3 nights but only stayed 2. The scenery of Jasper made up for it however! We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground - Full Hookups (Parks Canada), Banff National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Thanks to the favorable exchange rate this is a huge value! How can you beat full hook-ups in a beautiful national park for about $30 a night. The spots are pull-thrus with plenty of space, there are restrooms and dumpsters located at convenient intervals, and there is even a bus service into town. Banff of course has tons of restaurants, a nice hot springs pool, and views galore. We camped at Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground - Full Hookups (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.
