Boya Lake Provincial Park, Good Hope Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

BC does provincial parks "right". We will be looking to stay at more of these gems in the future. Previous advice to arrive early was correct - by mid afternoon, there were several rigs circling, looking for a spot. We arrived at noon and found a pull through waterfront site that was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. And the water colors rivalled any Caribbean island. Would definitely come back. And some sites ARE reservable if you must guarantee your stay. We camped at Boya Lake Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Mountain Shadow RV Park and Campground, Iskut, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Well kept park with an outstanding view. There's a nice hiking trail to one of the lakes for another view, but the mountains by the park are pretty spectacular. The owners are very dedicated and have the park in top condition. Power was a bit low at times, and there are no sewer hookups, so we washed clothes and dumped prior to a complete setup. And like all parks on the Cassiar Highway - NO connectivity. Be sure to make all your reservations before you get on this road. We camped at Mountain Shadow RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Not much to do here - we did a quick tour of Iskut and returned. Unless you are going to fish in the lake, this would be a nice 1 or 2 day transit stop. We stayed 3 nights, one too long. Caught up on housekeeping and relaxing.

Heritage RV Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

High volume campground with a good staff and an incredible view. We had a waterfront campsite which was very enjoyable if overpriced. Our family members on board tried to use the showers and on some days had to use our RV shower because of the long lines. Their snack bar provided a good selection. Without the view, the rating would drop to a 6, but the view... that makes the campground. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

The actual entrance is before you reach the office - you have to turn in and then follow a gravel road to the registration stop, so watch carefully as you approach. Our highlight of the RV trip was our flight from Homer via Alaska Bear Adventures to Katmai and to Lake Clark National Parks to view brown bears in the meadows after landing on the beach.

Red Eagle Lodge and Campground, Chistochina, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped for a couple of nights, prepared with empty holding tanks but full water so we could dry camp with 15A power. While we didn't use the facilities, the shower and restroom was immaculate. Very quiet setting. Does have a landing strip so we saw a couple of bush planes come in. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Red Eagle Lodge and Campground in a Motorhome.

Wrangell - St Elias National Park. You can drive about 40 miles into the wilderness if the water crossings are good and you have a vehicle with clearance. One was a very wide water crossing, but not deep. Just don't stop in the middle.

Goldpanner / Chicken Creek RV Park, Chicken, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

When checking in with a reservation, I was first told that I couldn't stay and to produce my confirming email (in an area with no cellular signal). I again said I have an existing reservation. Finally we cleared up their misunderstanding as my confirmation copy was already printed and on their desk. Then we were directed to the area where we were to park, a dry camping zone. We dodged the ruts, holes, boulders and the abandoned trailers and chose an unmarked place for the night, unlike their park map that indicated a more orderly area. Unfortunately, I didn't know that we could camp behind the Chicken Emporium/ Saloon/ Cafe up the hill for free. Will not return to this park. The hookup side might be more suitable but was not available when I reserved our night. We camped at Goldpanner / Chicken Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bonanza Gold Motel & RV Park, Dawson City, Yukon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We reserved this park just in case we needed the RV wash as we crossed Top of the World Highway. It was a rainy day so the answer was yes. Having that RV wash was essential to getting off most of the mud before it dried. The sites were back in, reasonably level, and were not noisy where we were staying. The staff was helpful on check in. Cellular service was good. We would stay here again. We camped at Bonanza Gold Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We spent 3 days exploring Dawson City - PLENTY to do... just go to the Visitor Center for information. Highly recommend any of the Parks Canada tours. These will cost extra as your park pass will not cover them, but they are worth it. There is a combo museum ticket that we didn't realize until after we had gone to 2 of the 3 museums. We did drive up The Dome for a sunset which was affected by the forest fires.

Hotel Carmacks and RV Park, Carmacks, Yukon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This was a rest stop along the Klondike Highway, and we were delighted to be across the street from the Yukon River with beautiful sunsets. The park is well kept, power did drop shortly after we arrived as the temperatures were 20 F above normal and the AC's on our row threw the breaker, but all in all, a nice stop. We camped at Hotel Carmacks and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Junction 37 Services RV Park, Watson Lake, Yukon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is an overnight transit stay type of park. Site was level, not fancy and we used our RV for all services. We looked at the 8 available (2 closed) pull thru sites, selected what we wanted and pulled in. The other parts of the businesses at this junction looked closed or failing. Nice people - just don't know how long it will be around. We had power (although there were 2x 30A plugs, and the first I selected tripped quickly - the second didn't), water, and septic. We had no cellular service and we learned you won't have cell service as you go down the Cassiar Highway so complete your reservations and contact your family before you go south. We camped at Junction 37 Services RV Park in a Motorhome.

Major Marine tour to the Kenai Fjords. We saw plenty of wildlife and a huge calving from the glacier. Even the captain was impressed with the size of that one. However, if they suggest motion sickness medicine - TAKE IT. We were sick during the Gulf of Alaska crossing (both ways) and we were on the meds.

Chena RV Park, Valdez, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Very cozy small RV Park that is just a few blocks from the waterfront... we walked everywhere. When we took a long boat cruise to Columbia Glacier, the owner walked our dog and ensured that she was OK in our absence. There is a grocery store next door so we shopped for fresh food daily. Power was 50A and never dipped. Would definitely prefer this small park even though not on the waterfront. We camped at Chena RV Park in a Motorhome.

Denali Viewpoint South, Trapper Creek, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

I was unclear on the proper actual cost for the stay- the info board said you have to pay $15 per vehicle and yet we have never had to pay an additional fee for the car towed behind my RV. Thus, I only paid $15 and with no attendant, I didn't get my question clarified. If there was an additional $15 fee for the car, the Value would drop to Bad. This is a parking lot with marked spaces. We drove into one of them, checked the angle, and then we parked in one of the 3 spots that 90 degrees to the row of slots because they have less slope. We stayed for 2 nights watching for the clouds to clear around Denali and were finally rewarded on the morning of our last day. The moose that kept passing by the RV at night and morning were a bonus. Lots of traffic stopping at this wayside, but reasonably quiet at night. Usually few overnight guests so you will appreciate the solitude. We camped at Denali Viewpoint South in a Motorhome.

Golden Nugget RV Park, Anchorage, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

I read the recent prior reviews before posting just to see if I'm "off-base" in my perception of a park. One review was quite critical, so let me offer another perspective based on seeing many more parks. This park has 2 sections A and B and we have stayed in both in the past month. The B section can be very tight but is where more of the transient guests stay, especially the RV Caravans. We had enough room, though. The A section has many long term residents. Outside the park doesn't seem to be the best section of Anchorage but we didn't have any theft or any need to carry a firearm as someone suggested. One long term resident was being evicted for reasons unknown while we were there. The laundry facility is nice even though they need to fix the dryers that are broken. The ice at $2/bag is a bargain and the right size for our aluminum water bottles. Across the street is a public park and our grandkids visiting us used it... sometimes dirty with trash, but not the responsibility of the RV Park. Be sure you get your email confirmation as the office seems to be a disorganized and had our information wrong... they called us to be sure we were coming and we were already in the park for 2 days. We camped at Golden Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

Northern Nights RV Campground, Glennallen, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A good park, with the feel of constant improvement. Some sites separated by trees, others are normal RV park type, but the spacing is adequate. Two observations - the 30A power sockets don't have circuit breakers (not a problem for us as we have a energy mgmt system that doesn't allow a large surge when plugged in) and the water pressure gets very low so we supplement with our water pump at times (I think this is a well). We knew mosquitoes would be here and they are, but have seen worse. Would stay here again. Free coffee in the AM's and dessert 3x a week at 7pm.

Take the shuttle or drive to the Kennecott National Historic Site. It's a LONG day as we were picked up at 0700 and returned at 2100. We had heard the road was really bad but we could have driven our car. Wouldn't want to take a Class A on that road ! Good views of Mt Drum to the south on the road to Valdez.

Tok RV Village, Tok, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

Family run business with attention to detail. Our site was level, but we did have to shuffle a bit to be able to open the slides while dodging the services pedestal. The car/ RV wash is based on the size of the vehicle and you get 45 minutes to complete the job, not a 3 or 5 minute wash cycle. Check in cookie was delicious. Price was a bit high, though, when considering the other parks along the AK Highway. Internet in TOK (Verizon signal) was very sporadic. We camped at Tok RV Village in a Motorhome.

Interesting pull out with the history of the Tanana River bridge completed in 2010 which replaced a one of a kind bridge built in 1943. Look for it south of the river (between the Taylor Highway and Tok).
