One of the best State parks we have encountered! Spotless, natural separation from other campsites, very quiet, great roads BUT hard to get a reservation unless your are months in advance of your stay. This park stays booked so plan your return at least 6 months prior. Great hiking and biking. Stables near by and shopping about 4 miles away. It doesn't get much better for a water/electric only site. Fire wood is .... crazy expensive! $5 gets you about 3 small sticks of wood.

Stopped here overnight and found Roadrunner to be a good park for our needs. Very level site, very friendly and helpful staff. the site was rather large and easy to navigate with a big rig. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for an overnight stop.

This is our second visit to the Texan and found it even better than the first time. Lots of room, good utilities, sparkling clean showers and restrooms. Very friendly management and very big rig friendly. Some of the sites are difficult to set up on but nothing a few "2 X's) wouldn't correct. Overall a great value for a very nice resort.

Great park with large sites and very big rig friendly. Sites very in size and slope so it is a good idea to drive through before you sign in. No septic at the sites but the dump station is close and easy to use. We were run out by heavy rains causing flooding but this is a rare occurrence. Service would have been excellent except that we were not notified of the evacuation until 6 hours after it was decided. Hard to deal with same day evacuation when you learn about it at 4PM! We would return without question! It's an oasis in the city..

This is a very well kept park occupied by many longer term rv's. Spaces are a little tight but didn't affect the quality of the stay. Pool looked great though we didn't partake. Laundry, exercise room and small library are clean and very nice. Propane and rv washing and waxing is available on site. Make reservations! This park seems to stay pretty full.

The new management here seems to be doing a great job of creating a clean family campground. Some of the roads are a bit tight to navigate with a big rig, so be careful. Turns and site entrances are a bit difficult in places. We rejected the first two assigned sites because they were not meant for big rigs. They have both treed sites and open areas for good satellite reception. Unhook toad in the front parking lot! Wi-Fi , water, sewer were all in good order. Folks in the office were very friendly and helpful. No doubt we would stay here again.

It seems common that the RV parks in Dawson, like many other cities, take full advantage of every foot of real estate to maximize rental space. We were packed in so tight that we could just extend our slides and that was it. The dog in the next site, occupied by a seasonal guest, was chained so that we had to ask that his tether be shortened so that we could get our dog in and out of the coach. For 3 days it wasn't a problem. If we had planned on staying a week it would have become an issue. The basics were all functional; good water, sewer and 30 amp power were fine. Cable TV was excellent but the property, over all, was not in the best of condition. We did visit the downtown RV park and it was in much the same state. In Dawson, this is how things work. The staff was less than friendly. Be sure you get the conversion rate!!

The 30 amp pull-through sites require a reservation. Plenty of 20 amp sites were available during our 2 day stay. The pull-through site we were in was just wide enough to put our slides out and that was it. Power was good but the dump station was locked when we needed it and the office closed so no dump for us! Given the location in remote Alaska, the overall impression of the facilities was good. The outhouse arrangement was good and spotless. Lots of folks panning, others just watching the RVs coming off of the Top of the World Highway. The choices are limited in Chicken but I would chose this campground on the next visit.

Great campground in our opinion. Spotless in all regards, very friendly staff, large sites and easy hook up. The only downfall was in the cable tv. It was weak at best. Even had live entertainment for an hour in the evening that was actually pretty good country music! We have stayed in other campgrounds in Tok and this one is by far the best to date. Make a reservation! Heavy bookings in July.

The options around this area are very limited. Having said that, this park is pretty good. There is a small grocery, cafe, laundry with use of a dump station. About everything one needs for a day or two while visiting the park. No a destination resort but fills all the necessities as a short term base camp. The owners seemed very nice and the grounds clean. 30 amp power is available at the back in sites only. WiFi is useable at the store only. Verizon phone worked well here. Movie rentals at the store is a plus since there are no useable off air stations that I could find. I would stay here again if visiting Kennicott / McCarthy.

We found this park to be the best value and most convenient of the area RV parks. If you want cable TV be sure to specify when you check in as not all sites have this service. Most sites are comfortable for a large motor home with multiple slides but be careful. Some have trees very close that could cause problems when setting up. Utility hook ups were all fine. Park has a great RV wash, easy to use dump and water fill stations. Staff were very helpful and willing to work with us on the rate for a month long stay. Lots of turnover! Many one-night campers and caravans so expect a fair amount of traffic. We did notice the airport noise, which is about 3 miles away. Didn't notice mosquitoes as we did in other nearby parks. No doubt we would stay here on a return visit to Fairbanks.

Be careful big rigs!! This camp ground is difficult to get into, tight to maneuver within and has tree limbs that will do a tap dance on your roofs and antennas! Standing water in the small creek is breeding mosquitos while you watch! I can't say I felt completely safe here and opted to move. Tents and small trailers might find this to be ok but I would recommend riding through the park before checking in. We didn't go in the laundry or use any of the facilities. The sight was so tight that it would have been very difficult to use the fire ring or picket table. I would not stay here again.

We came to the cg in a time of mechanical failure: no water or dump station due to a winter water line break that took weeks to fix. The crew worked feverishly to get repairs completed and water at the fill station was restored during our stay...but not the dump station. This was a difficult situation or this campground would be a 10 in my book. Large level sites shaded and separated by trees. Vault toilets and trash cans everywhere. Beautiful surroundings in an indescribable natural treasure. Dry camping doesn't get better than this! Our 38' MH and our toad fit easily into an "A" site. Walk to the Denali retail area, Mercantile in Riley CG, Visitor center and Learning Center. OR take a shuttle bus with waits less that 30 minutes. Would return in a heartbeat.

Views make the stay!! Can't get much closer to the water than in this Seward city campground. Sites vary widely in depth and width so make your choice with your particular equipment in mind. It was very tight getting our toad close enough to the coach to stay within the lines. Leveling can be a challenge depending on the site selected but there are no bad views. We stayed at Resurrection campground so we used water and electric both very satisfactory. We were there early in the season so noise was not an issue but could be expected to increase as the crowds arrive. Bring an electrical extension!! If you want to face the water many sites will require you to plug in AHEAD of your unit. Seward is delightful. We found the locals to be warm and welcoming but did I mention the views?? Spectacular! Great place to visit and a fine (but basic) campground. We would stay here again without question.

The most impressive aspect of this resort is the incredible view which is outstanding! The second most impressive aspect is the quiet (unlike camp grounds on the Homer Spit). Sites are all back in but suitably wide with good utility hook ups. The grounds are behind the C-Store on the highway also owned by the same folks. Check in was fast and friendly and an onsite host is present. It is about 3 miles to Homer so the experience here is far different from staying on the busy (windy and noisy) Homer Spit. If you want to be in the middle of the fishing, boating and vacationing action you will probably want to be on the Spit. This place is very quiet and much more reasonably priced than the closer in campgrounds. The price posted here is based on a weekly rate. The owners have had this property for a very short time and are working hard to make it a more up to date resort.
