Big Bear Campground & RV Park, Palmer, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

One night stay before we left AK; chose "extra wide" site for more space between rigs; Free showers and strong multiple WiFi signals. True pull through and easy access to hookups; fairly level site. Has a pavillion with picnic tables and some cabins around perimiter. Can hear traffic but it's not distracting at all, just a little background noise. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Denali Rainbow Village & RV Park (Privately Owned), Denali National Park, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We picked this because it is the CLOSEST RV park to the entrance to Denali, NP. We did not pick it for the view which is of the back of buildings and private apartments upstairs. Spots are very tight and barely enough room for the rig and a picnic table. This is not a spot to really hang out in, just a place to sleep while you visit Denali and partake in other activities offered. There will be pedestrians; workers; 18 wheelers making deliveries in this lot but for us, it was worth it due to it being so close to the park. I would give it a ten just because they are so close to the park which made this spot VERY CONVENIENT but it's such a parking lot that I can't. It was just a waypoint for us. Staff thought we were crazy asking if they had any ice to sell -- apparently it was in short supply at the time. We bought bags of ice from a local restaurant. We camped at Denali Rainbow Village & RV Park (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walk across the street to Princess Hotel and catch shuttle bus (either paid tour or just to visitor center or the "WAC"). Princess bus drivers don't ask if you are staying at the hotel so just hop on! The shops along (that you see the back of in the campground) the road are great. Please frequent the locally owned shops not the "chain" (think "Subway") for your coffee, food, ATV, Flights, river rides etc. All within walking distance.

River's Edge Resort, Fairbanks, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This is a well run RV Park. The way the entrance is set up you can tell they have a huge turnaround of RV's. So that said, I wondered why we were placed so close to the office when there were sites closer to the river that were unoccupied during our stay. Maybe you have to ask for those sites, I don't know. Wonderful shade for morning and afternoon sun so you need to watch the slideouts so they don't hit the trees. The hookups for water/cable/electric were at the end of the site while the dump connection was in the middle. So we had to unhook our shortest line (cable) to be able to use the dump connection. This is the very first site we did NOT have to level. It was perfectly level. This campground is indeed on the river's edge and there are sites close to the river. There are picnic tables along the river's edge for use. Very pretty site. They have hotel rooms and a resturant which we had dinner at -- very good but can be pricey. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Riverview RV Park, Fairbanks, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Park was not fully open when we arrived. They lost power/water to middle of campground and their riverview facilities were closed. We laughed when we found it. I don't beleive one site as a view of the river. There is a gas station, propane station and rig wash which is very convenient. There is also a conveience store and the bus picks you up right in front of the campground. Could not get more conveineint than that! Sites are close but not too close. Open and no trees. There was a little highway sound but not too bothersome. BUT, since we are near the military base we can hear the revelry bugel in the morning! We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sourdough Campground, Tok, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Site was one of the prettiest with lots of tree canopy. Site is laid out in circular form with true pull through. Easy to level but you need to watch the trees to make sure your slideout will not get tangled. Showers were free and women's room was clean and plenty of room. No highway noise. Cute grounds with a little museum type layout. I would give it a ten but the internet WiFi did not reach us and we were in the middle of the campground. Good thing in that it forced you to go to the cafe where the owner cooked for you. He and his wife are very nice. If there were more people in the campground he would have had his nightly "pancake toss". Get a pancake in the bucket and you get free breakfast. We camped at Sourdough Campground in a Motorhome.

Bayside RV Park, Valdez, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We pulled in without any reservations before the summer rush. We were able to get a full hookup site in the best view row facing the bay. We liked this over the others in the town (one is right across the street) because of the view. It is within walking and biking distance to restaurants and the harbor. Leveling took a little work but we managed. The owner fed the bald eagles around 5:30 and it was quite a show! We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Northern Nights RV Campground, Glennallen, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived on the first day they were open so they were not quite ready for us. We camped mid-May and being farther from Anchorage we were able to pick from any of their sites. True pull-through sites don't have sewer, only water and power. Other sites do have full service but it's back-in. Plenty of pine trees and we were able level our rig quickly. I took advantage of the 2 free tokens for a shower and enjoyed the clean HOT shower. Bathrooms were equally clean. Wi-Fi was strong but I suspect it's because we were only one of 4 other campers in the park! I liked that it was not directly on the main road so the road noise was non-existent. Moose are in the area and you will see signs of them everywhere. I think it's mainly because they had the run of the place in the winter. We camped at Northern Nights RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Fox Run Lodge and RV Campground, Palmer, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

We reserved a pull through which was just that, a true pull through but we could not get our camper level plus it was tight with trees so we found a back in site that was more level. Street noise is constant during the day and thank heavens it slows at night for sleeping otherwise we would be miserable. Spots are tight. We had a converted bus next to us that appeared to be parked there for quite a while, which leads me to my next statement. It was not your typical "vacation RV park" more like a RV park for longer term rentals. We were the only rentals that I could tell with others clearly set for the summer. There is a storage facility for your rig if you need it but it makes for a "dumpier" atmosphere. If you want to get a better view use the sites near the lake. We left each day for our day trips and returned at night so we didn't need the view sites. We ate dinner at the clubhouse the first night, cooked by a resident Hawaiian cooking authentic food -- strange but true but there is a large contingent of Hawaiians in Alaska. Propane is available for purchase which was convenient. Only one washer for the place and one bathroom. At least it was clean. We camped at Fox Run Lodge and RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Hatcher Pass State Park is nearby. Must visit the Independence Mine or take a hike along the Gold Mint trail. If you are a light sleeper move your rig to the lakefront, it has to be quieter as we had constant road noise.

Seward Waterfront Park, Seward, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a first come first serve campground so if you are planning on using it during the summer good luck! We had reservations at another park and once we got to this park we cancelled our reservation (and had to pay the full price but we were much happier here). Park is walking, bike ride close to everything from the marina, grocery store, town, Sea Life Center, you name it. There are fire pits along the shoreline for your use, most campers stayed along the waterline. We parked closest to the street which had street noise. Not giving it a ten because it does not have a dump hookup at each site plus you have to pay $5 to use the dump station which is just 2 second away. You cannot beat the view of resurrection bay!!! We camped at Seward Waterfront Park in a Motorhome.

Walking, Biking Distance to Sea Life Center a must see place, also take a Kenai Fjords Boat tour, it's worth the price. The captain knows right were to go for wildlife viewing. There is a brewhouse in town that serves local and Alaska brewed beer and wonderful food. Local bars are just that, local and can be dark -- no pub food at the two that we visited.

Oceanview RV Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Oceanview name is correct! It is beautiful, with friendly staff. When we arrived we were only 3rd camper on site but when we left it was full. We were asked to move our reserved spot because we were next to one of the campers. We tried one spot and could not get level so we tried another -- not more than 20 minutes later four other campers moved in right next to us. So that was a waste of time. Cable service did not work, Wi-Fi did work. I will attribute all of the issues including level pads to the fact that we were one of the first visitors to the RV Park for the season. They could not get their gravel load until the highway dept allowed the trucks to use the roads. The Staff said they would call the cable company to check their service. They also gave us the Good Sam discount and we were not GS members! We camped at Oceanview RV Park in a Motorhome.

We took our bikes and rode down to Homer Spit. It's about 2 miles to the start of Home Spit Road. Homer Spit road is 4.5 miles long and relatively flat so this old broad was able to handle it! At the end of Spit road there are shops, pubs and marina. Even saw Time Bandit from Deadliest Catch moored up. There is a Safeway within biking distance (it would be a long walk) of the park. "Old Town" is within walking distance but it's not walk friendly at all and was a disappointment.
