We didn't stay here but drove through to see if our 40' motorhome would fit. This is not a campground for big rigs. RVs up to 34' would be fine. It's a pleasant-looking park. The campground is not on the water but a short walk. There is a boat ramp and rocky beach to walk. There is a host in an information cabin. The vault toilets were clean. There is a water pump. There is no dump. If you had a kayak or boat this would be a very nice place to use it. It is 7 miles from Haines via a paved road until the last mile. It is then a wide gravel road. The last 1/2 mile is downhill on a 14% grade. It didn't seem that steep to us and it's only for a short time. From town, take Mud Bay Rd. and watch for signs. WE DID NOT STAY. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There be Bears! A short drive from the campground will take you to the shores of the Chilkoot River where bears come to feed on spawning salmon. This is the iconic Alaska scene. It is easy walking distance to the bears but the inherent danger of being near feeding bears require you to drive and watch from your RV. The CG is located about 10 miles from Haines past the ferry terminal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We drove through this park. If our 40' motorhome would have fit we would have stayed. It's in a beautiful setting on a lovely lake and river. The road is paved to it. The sites have good privacy but we wouldn't recommend larger than a 32' - 34' max RV try to fit here. The vault toilets were very clean. It is about 7 miles from town. From the harbor in town take Lutak Road toward the ferry landing and drive about 7 miles. There is a host on site, picnic tables, fire pits, water pump and a boat ramp. WE DID NOT STAY. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a wonderful CG about 10 miles from Haines. Good fishing for Dolly Varden in the river exiting the lake. The sites are well spaced out and the vault toilets were well maintained. If you arrive by the ferry, turn right out of the ferry lot. Left takes you into Haines. Some of the pull through sites are a little narrow for big rigs, but there are many back in sites which would accommodate them. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is the nicest and cleanest in Haines. The owners are friendly; however, we paid $50/night for 50 amp full hookup but was told when we checked in that if we used our air conditioner or electric heat it would be an additional charge of $3.50/day. We also needed a late checkout in order to catch the ferry which didn't leave till 11pm and was told we had to pay $10/hr for every hour after normal check out time. Much to our surprise, when we did check out at 5pm, the lady said there was no additional charge. She was not the owner however and I think the owners would've made us pay. It's a very nice park though, and expensive, but let's face it, most people are in Haines to catch the ferry so they can get away with charging whatever they want. The laundry facilities are very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The $45 rate reflects the 10% Good Sam discount and is for a Platinum site with 50 amps. The rates vary from there. This park is very pretty, extremely well taken care of and clean. The views are stunning, as the mountains are all around the park. Walk to town to enjoy the good restaurants and shops. Wi-Fi worked great all of the time. We parked here in a 45' and a 42'. There was ample room to get in and out of the sites on a good, packed gravel road. We were here in July and liked it so much we came back for a week at the end of our journey around AK. Highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are presently in the park and can honestly say this is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in during our 8 week visit to Alaska. The park is exceptionally well maintained. Lovely grassy well spaced sites. Bathroom, showers, and laundry facilities are spotless. Staff are friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi works well and there is a great selection of TV channels available. I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent RV park with large level sites. Friendly staff. Clean rest rooms and showers. Good wifi signal. Park had cable TV with a good selection of channels but picture was not clear on all channels. Close to town and all the other things to do and see in Haines. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Full service campground with good cable and wifi service. Sites are average size with no trees. Traffic noise is constant. Definitely the best game in town for services offered. Main advantage is being walking distance to town and a block or two to a great coffee shop/bakery/deli store. There is a convenient area for walking the "fur kids" . The gravel roads make it unfriendly for wheelchairs, unfortunately. We stayed a week and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park with wide, all grass sites. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The whole place is immaculate. The only downside is the views aren't as great as they could be. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great, full service park. All the sites are GRASS, which is real rarity in Alaska. There are different types of sites so the price can vary by about $20. The laundry and showers are very clean and spacious. I was happy to see recycling which is too rare at RV parks. We walked to the harbor in about 15 minutes. Definitely the best RV park in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this RV Park. Very nice owners and staff. Sites are nice with plenty of room. Everything works. Park is within walking distance of town. Haines is a nice small town not affected by the cruise ship crowds. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nicely kept park and good utilities. Only thing that keeps it from being a 10 is that it is in town with Haines Highway on one side and Main street on the other. Not a lot of traffic (day or night), so it's not a big deal. We looked at the other parks in town and while you don't get an ocean view, this is the nicest park. They have a well kept laundry as well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects weekly rate. I'm in my 2nd of seven days here and so far so good. All roadways are newly laid gravel - smooth and even and wide. My sight is all grass (as all are) and very solid level and wide. I say solid because it has rained since I arrived and there are no puddles. Wi-Fi is strong. Staff is helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 6 nights. The awesome WIFI is the best we've had since May--strong and reliable. Everything works well. Nice, hard-working, security-oriented managers. They give you a good brochure with a map of where everything is. Pretty colorful flower plantings around office. Nice, wide, pull-thru spaces, and they have 50 amps! We really could have left 2-3 days earlier, but it's such a nice park that we stayed. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park, great staff. Everything promised worked which is quite odd for Alaska. Sites great, far above average for our two months in this state. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Only downer -- $3.00 per load in the washers and $3 per load in the dryers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a rarity to have grass sites in AK. The only bad part of grass sites is that you also park on grass. This may cause your jacks to settle. They are a bid over zealous with the rules. Forget to put your yellow car tag on your windshield and be greeted in the morning with a nasty-gram to comply. Come on one car on a site and they wonder if its authorized! They also nickel and dime you. You pay extra for a 50 amp site and then they will charge you an extra $3/night for heat, air, or a freezer. They also have a strange online reservation system. You send them $35 by PayPal and don't get a confirmation of your reservation. With the negatives, this is a nice park. Clean laundry room. Easy walk to town. Oh one more negative. Okay no washing, got it. But also no waxing or wiping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park, very well run, neat, clean. Staff is full of information. Sites are all grass and it is lush and green. Washing rig is not allowed. They referred us to Duck In Car Wash across the street. We believe the clearance wasn't as high as indicated, and we damaged our A/C. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Immaculate park. Nice level grass sites. Plenty of space between units. Wide roads. Easy access and close to town. Owners gave complete information about area. Drove through other parks, this is best one in Haines. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly people who care about their park. It was very clean and tidy. In the restrooms there even had hair driers! Unfortunately the park is only grass without any trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very helpful folks. Excellently maintained campground. Has lots of grass, which can be unique around here. Very clean facilities. Convenient to get back on highway to Haines Junction. Not close to town but nice place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice well kept park. Very strict rules which keep this park nice. All sites are nice, more private in the back away from main road. About 6 blocks from town. We preferred the Ocean front RV park but they were full. Oceanside is smaller and site closer together but views of ocean are worth it, and right in town. I would stay at Oceanside is available just because the harbor is right out your front door, but this one is very good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is the neatest and best kept park we have stayed in for a long time and is within walking distance to everything in the town. The office staff were most helpful and informative. We would most definitely stay here again. It is by far the best in town. All beautiful grassy sites and good, large even pads. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects Good Sam discount. What a great campground, probably the nicest in Alaska and nicer than the vast majority of campgrounds we’ve stayed at anywhere. There are a number of different “categories” of sites to choose from, depending on whether you want a pull-through, cable TV, W/E only, etc., so you only pay for the amenities you want. Easy walk to town and restaurants. The owners greeted us and provided detailed information about activities in the area. Our back-in grass site was almost perfectly level. The showers and restrooms were immaculate! Wi-Fi worked great! This campground sets the standard for all Alaska campgrounds! We would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We paid a premium price to have 50 amp service. I'm not sure it was worth it though. Park is clean and people are friendly and helpful. You camp on grass and there are lots of pull through spaces. We would stay here again but might opt for 30 amp service which is less money. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The CG is right on Main St, so there is traffic noise during the day, but not so much at night. Very well-tended place, grass spots (thick grass, not dirt). The laundry and showers are immaculate. Staff was very friendly. We loved the little town of Haines – you can easily walk to downtown from the CG. And you see mountains all around from the CG. I would stay here again, but I might try the Oceanside CG next time – we did a walk through – not as nice facilities-wise, but you park right next to the harbor & can watch the cruise-ships, fishing boats, and ferries come and go (so the choice is comfort – Hitch-up; or view - Oceanside) We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for five nights and this is one of the most immaculate parks we have ever stayed in. Prices seem quite high. All of the sites are grass and are immediately mowed upon resident departures. It almost seems somewhat impractical. Only objections are the amount of rules and monitorings that have been implemented to protect the grass. Haines is a beautiful area and we would return and stay at this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, well groomed park and centrally located. However, at $42 for the night it was a little too pricey. The park had way too many "Don't Do's". No portable heaters, no AC, etc., and an additional $8.95 for the WiFi had it's own list of "Don't Do's". We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great RV park for travelers. Would only stay here when coming back to Haines. Stayed for 3 nights. It was super clean and super friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Very well run RV Park. The staff is very friendly and helpful in arranging tours, etc. The place is spotless, and their laundry is the nicest we have ever seen. The rate is with a Good Sam discount. We did not pay for the Wi-Fi and cable TV which are both extra. Mostly no shade, and the setting is right in the middle of town with road noise. This is the only reason we didn't give them a 10. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent Park that delivers on all it advertises. Restrooms are secure ones and they as well as laundry room are the cleanest I've ever seen. They even sweep the rocks off the street back into the park and were repainting signs while we were there. The park is well organized and has wide interior drives. The staffers are all friendly and knowledgeable. There is a nice gift shop. Above price is a weekly rate divided by 7. The longer you stay the lower the price. We would certainly return. Sat TV and Wi-F work well. The only drawback is road noise on both sides of the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park with well maintained grassy sites. Our 33 foot 5th wheel and truck just fit in the assigned site. There is space in between the sites so you don't feel closed in. Depending on where you are in the park there are nice views of the mountains. The owner is very helpful when you check in and tells you about all the things in the area. The sites are level and have full hookups plus cable. The Wi-Fi is $5.28/night or $12.92/3 days. You are asked if you have a portable heater that you will be using and if so they charge and additional $3.50 plus tax per day. They have a nice selection of items in their gift shop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the most well kept campgrounds we ever stayed at and is in walking distance of downtown shops and museums. The grass sites are level and well spaced. The restrooms and laundry were very clean and nicely decorated. The price is a little 'spendy,' but worth it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is a rare gem. Although you are in an open area, it has plenty of space. The owners meticulously maintain this park. You won't be disappointed. Level spaces on a lush lawn and wide open travel lanes. Convenient RV wash ($) across the street. Everything super clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, well maintained park. Long, wide, level sites on grass. Interior roads are wide and easy to navigate. Excellent laundry and camp store. One of the best RV parks anywhere. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I would rate this campground higher, but they have so many rules! The sites are very level and have grass. The restrooms and showers are very clean. It is a convenient location and there is room enough for slide-outs and awnings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After staying at Haines Junction this campground was a god send. Green grass, clean, quiet, friendly staff, clean restrooms, clean showers, level sites,able to walk to town. It was great. If anyone spent any time camping in Alaska and did not appreciate this camp ground, something is wrong with them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the nicest RV Park/campground in Alaska or Canada that I have stayed. Lots of mowed green grass, thick layer of gravel on the interior roads, no mud or potholes, lots of landscaping. Laundry and bath house were spotless. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice grassy sites. Strict pet rules enforced. Wifi was $5 a day and sometimes was not available. Washing, wiping or waxing of vehicles is prohibited. However, there is a RV wash across the street. Easy walk to town. For AK this is a great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very basic gravel parking lot overlooking the Portage Cove and the lovely surrounding mountains. Sites are level, but rather tight and cramped when the park is full. Conveniently placed water, electricity, and sewer hookup worked well. There is no Wi-Fi. Shower and bathroom were clean and neat. The owner was very friendly and helpful, but we thought the price was a bit high for what we got. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree that this is a tight place, but the owner makes up for the closeness of the sites. The potluck dinners and the evening group campfires make everyone seem like friends. The other campground in town is pretty and clean but it is right between two main roads. The closeness almost forces you to make friends. We would definitely stay here again. The view from the campground overshadows any deficiencies. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are close, but enough room for your 40 foot rig with slides. View of Portage Cove (the ocean) is great. Small craft harbor to one side, Haines downtown one block behind you. Haines-Skagway ferry about five miles down the road. Wonderful Dungeness Crab Feed/potluck every Saturday night. We paid $6 a crab. They get them right off the crab boat. We loved this quaint little park and would stay here again. If you want bigger sites and a groomed park-like atmosphere (nice place), the park as you come into town would be the place to go. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is ideal for Class A or B rigs. A 5er would have a view of the street and the fence. Not a lot going on in the harbor as compared to Valdez. One cruise ship comes in per week. You can watch the cruise ships leaving Skagway in the evening. Couple evenings per week they have a Dungeness Crab Pot luck. $6 for the crab cooked to perfection. Evening happy hour get togethers. One really feels welcome here. Personalized escort to the site with expert directions to back into the site. Neighbors may have to move their toad to get in or out, however. Fine dust in the lot tracks in if you do not have a rug. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The folks that run this RV park are super nice and the park has great views of the water, but it's really not much more than a small gravel parking lot with a view. It's tight, you'll have room for your slideouts, but no more. It's also pretty expensive at $40, plus $3 for 8 minute showers, and you have to pay for Wi-Fi too. Also, there's only one shower for the whole park, probably why they have a meter on it, to minimize use. As we left town we saw the other RV park on the opposite end of main street with big grassy sites and kind of wished we stayed there: it's also within walking distance of town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has physical limitations with very narrow sites that back up onto a fairly busy and dusty road. In compensation the business district and boat harbor are only a short walk away and Chilkoot Inlet lies directly in front of the park. Utilities, including cable television, worked well; AT&T phone service was good but data service was slow. The owner was friendly, helpful and promoted a welcoming sociable atmosphere. The rate reflects the Good Sam discount. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The view in this park is well worth the closeness of the sites. It is right on the fiord, with mountains in the background. Bald eagles fly over in the morning and evening, and huge cruise ships pass by about a hour after they leave Skagway. While the sites are narrow, the owners make sure everyone is parked with enough room for slides. We have a 40 foot motor home and had no problems. There are really only 2 parks for big rigs here, and the other one, while it does have larger sites, is more expensive and does not have the view. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We called ahead for reservations. The owner, greeted us, gave concise directions for backing into the site, then gave us a bowl of Dungeness crab for lunch! She was very friendly, and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had all the info we needed to enjoy the area. Clean restrooms, showers, and laundry. CG has an unobstructed view of the small boat harbor and the bay, with picnic tables set up to take full advantage of the view. We would recommend this CG and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are very close. Very friendly staff to help you get in. Great view of the Lynne Canal. Wi-Fi is provided by AP&T by subscription, hr, day, week or month. Very short walk to town. $30 with Good Sam Discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites are very close together but the view is dynamite! You will be right at the water's edge and can watch the ferry/cruise ships/bald eagles, etc. Our 40' motorhome fit but if the park is full we'd practically touch our neighbor's rig. There is a clean toilet room and shower room (one stall each) and a clean small laundry area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is right on the cove, next to the small boat dock, in downtown Haines. The view of the mountains and water can't be beat, and everything in town is within walking distance. It's basically a parking lot. There are a couple of picnic tables fronting the water. We paid $30 a night with the Good Sam discount. Showers were $3 extra, so we didn't use them. Wi-Fi was $2.95 an hour or $6.95 a day, so we didn't use that, either. There are two bathrooms in the building where the office is located, one of which is handicapped accessible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is right on the river. You back your rig in and look out at the water. It's not a great campground, but, again, it's location. While in Haines I would suggest the Haines Hitch-Up, but we needed a place to stay one more night because the ferry had engine trouble. They did have a dungeness crabfest the night we stayed. The crab was just off the boat! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We couldn't use this because the sites were not big enough for our 40' motorhome. We drove through. There are only approximately seven sites with hookups for RVs about 30-34'. The rest of the sites are for tents or small truck campers, etc. There were beer bottles at a few of the empty sites so either they don't clean up well or it's a nightly party park. The out buildings looked run down. It is right in town and extremely dark and wooded. Even if we would have fit, we wouldn't have stayed here. WE DID NOT STAY. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Dry camping. Sites are on a bluff overlooking the bay about a mile from the ferry terminal. Great views day and night! Cruise ships and ferries are visible from most sights. Water is available near the office. Very friendly and helpful owner! Fishing is permitted on the bay across the road from the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
