Tok RV Village

Tok, Alaska

Date of Stay:

Rate is for 50 amp service; cheaper rate for 30 amp. Sites are available in all sizes; ours was a pull-through site long enough for our 40' rig and 12' tow. Sites are gravel, but separated from each other with grass section. Two clean laundry rooms; one at the front of the park, one towards the middle. Book exchange in the office and middle laundry room. Used our own Verizon MiFi instead of the park's WiFi.

Date of Stay:

We love this park! It offers electric only or dry camping, and yes, the internet is slow at times, but you are in Chicken, AK! This park sits on top of an old gold mine - the owners are to be congratulated for their work in reclaiming the land. Water is trucked in and filtered for use (and it tastes good). There is a café with sandwiches, baked goods, and drinks to match any urban coffee shop. The gift shop offers handmade and high class gifts. A small book exchange is located in the café seating area. There is gold-panning on site and tours of the historic gold dredge. You can also arrange for gold panning trips out to one of their mining claims. The rest of the community of Chicken is within easy walking distance.

We think this is the park to stay when in Dawson City. Sites are level and there is room for everyone to be comfortable, even if side-by-side. The managers/hosts are all very friendly and helpful; full of information about the area. There is a small book exchange in the laundry room; books can be purchased for a donation to KIVA. We left our motorhome here for the 4 days it took to drive to Inuvik, NWT and back. Management worked with us to allow a move into a electric only site to keep our refrigerator and freezer working, and to return to a full-hookup site upon our return. We highly recommend this park to anyone visiting the area.

     

Bedrock Motel

Mayo, Yukon

Date of Stay:

A very simple campground at the back of the motel unit. Three sites with hookups; the rest are dry camp in a field. The place could use some work, but all utilities worked well. This is a good place to park your rig and make the drive to Keno City and back in your car.

Date of Stay:

A very nice RV park that does not cater to caravans. We had a site wide and long enough for all 4 slides on our 40' motorhome without encroaching on the neighboring sites. Wifi was sporadic; worked best in the gift shop/office building. Car/RV wash worked well. Easy on/off highway and good access into downtown Whitehorse. We did see where some campers were using the bus line to get into town; but didn't do this ourselves.

Date of Stay:

This is a simple, clean campground with mostly back-in sites; only a few parallel sites. The sites closer to the road are more level than those closer to the lake. Free firewood was available for campfires; picnic table and fire pit at most sites.

Date of Stay:

This is your typical gravel parking lot park. Sites are tight together so lining up slides can be an issue. That said, you have to meet the owner! He is friendly, has you laughing, and is quick to point out where everything is in town. You can walk to the grocery store, the Northern Lights Centre, and the sign post forest from the park. WiFi was best on the porch so settle in and make new friends.

Date of Stay:

A lovely park nestled in the trees at the Liard River Hot Springs. Each of the contractor employees we met were friendly and helpful, from the kiosk host to the young man delivering fire wood. Sites vary in size, from short to long enough for our 40' motorhome. Trees and other bushes provide privacy from neighboring sites. The Hot Springs area is very nice and kept very clean. Don't miss the hike up to the gardens. You can walk to the springs from the campground or drive your car over and park in the day-use lot. Saw many bears and wood bison in the area outside the park.

Date of Stay:

A clean, well-run park by the looks of things. Car/RV wash at the end campground worked good. Gravel sites, long enough for 40' motorhome with tow still attached. Park is within walking distance of museum and visitor information centre. We didn't eat at the park's café, but it had a good crowd.

Date of Stay:

A very nice park, probably the nicest one in the area; the owners are working very hard to keep it well maintained and managed. Problems with the WiFi were being corrected; owner mentioned they might have to have a new system installed. Gravel lot can be quite muddy when it rains; be prepared to take your shoes off to enter restrooms and laundry area. Park is frequently used by caravan groups and there are a few full-time workers living here. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We found this to be a very nice park located away from the hustle and bustle of the town and highway. We had a long site (#43) for our 4-slide, 40' RV with plenty of room for our tow. As others have noted, the sites are separated from each other by trees and other shrubs. Park was quiet, and we had good Internet connection from the Camp 2 antenna. The manager was very friendly and offered good tips for sightseeing in the area. She has a nice selection of travel brochures available if you miss stopping at the tourism centre in town.

Date of Stay:

This is an awesome Parks Canada campground with sites to meet anyone's needs. We had a full hookup, pull-through site long and wide enough for our 4-slide, 40' RV with tow and were separated from neighbors by trees and other bushes. A campfire permit and wood costs $8.80CDN; wood is easily retrieved from two sites within the park. We would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

The campground is now under new management and she is working hard to freshen and update the facilities. A new snack bar and patio are under construction. As others have mentioned, the park sets alongside a lake, but the sites are not on the water. The campground offers sites with full hookups, electric only, and no hookups. We had a nice, level pull-through site with plenty of room for our 4-slide, 40' RV and tow. We would definitely return to stay longer and rent a canoe!

Date of Stay:

We had a lovely site in this beautiful campground. While many sites are for two rigs, we were lucky enough to get a single, pull-through site for our 4-slide, 40' RV with plenty of room for our tow. Sites are separated by trees and, except for the occasional train, was very quiet. Watch the speed bumps as you approach the fee kiosk - they are rough! There were warnings of bear activity, but we didn't see any. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Only part of this campground was open this early in the season (June 7-9) so we were in a non-big rig site. That said, it was long and wide enough for our 4-slide, 40' RV; the tow car was parked across the front. The park appears to be well-maintained and clean; we don't use their restrooms or showers. We had a quiet stay except for traffic noises; no children in the park during this time. We had 30amp service, no WiFi, and Verizon cell coverage.
