Wonderful views of whales, seals, sea lions, eagles, and mink right from our rig were the highlight. Mostly a large gravel lot, the sites are pretty level but a little small. Water, electricity and sewer hookups worked well, but were placed on opposite sides of site. Wi-Fi worked well. Bathrooms were a bit of a hike, and were not very clean (which they claimed was because we were there so early in the season). We enjoyed getting to know many fellow campers during our week here. This was our second time here (last 4 years ago) and we'd return if we ever come to Alaska again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent four nights here while exploring Ketchikan. Actual price was 34.85 including tax for non-waterfront site. Fairly level sites. W/S/E/ Cable TV with just a few channels and Wi-Fi. All worked well but the sewer was sticking up a bit high. Although a bit far from town, it is the only full service campground in Ketchikan. Waterfront (extra cost) & non-waterfront sites are available. We asked for a site close to the showers & restrooms and were accommodated. Friendly staff. There were lots of eagles in the trees surrounding the RV Park. The restaurant at the resort had not opened yet for the season, but there were plenty of dining choices in town and plenty of free parking in town also. While the “all-in-one” shower / toilet facilities were a bit dated, they were clean and there was plenty of hot water. Washers & dryers worked very well. The resort also offers boat rentals and fishing charters. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is in the Ward Lake Recreation Area in the Tongass National Forest. It is 8 miles north of Ketchikan. It is for dry camping. There are water pumps, pit toilets, and a beautiful lake surrounded by trees and mountains. There are also hiking trails. If you drive in without a reservation, you can find one you like and stop by the campground host to pay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
