Very friendly staff. Traffic noises as park is very close to highway. Had a pull through spot close to an uphill drive to pull out of. Good for a central location to Palmer, Wasilla, and day trips to Anchorage. We stayed three days We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was not one of the fanciest places we stayed, but we liked it for it's friendly, down home atmosphere. The owners were exceptionally helpful, and went out of their way to accommodate us. The fishing off the dock was fun. The Wi-Fi was down due to modem issues, but we found this one of the most relaxing places we have stayed at. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Park is next to busy road so constant noise. Only one bathroom & shower stall for whole camp. Wi-Fi did not work. We checked in and left within the hour, but staff was friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is too small and cramped, plus it is next to a busy, noisy highway. Good news is the park is clean and the lake is lovely. Unfortunately when we visited, there was a group occupying the limited lake access and it wasn't comfortable to intrude. The books give it good ratings, but I would skip it next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very small RV park. All sites are gravel. There is a small fishing lake off of the campground. TV reception was with my rabbit ears and it was pretty good. My dish antenna would not work in Alaska. In Alaska the dish must be 30 inches across at a minimum I was told. WIFI in the park depended on how close you were parked to the office. The restrooms and showers were satisfactory. The staff were ok but not what I would call friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the cleanest parks we have stayed in. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Showers are free and very clean. Lots of trees and a beautiful view of the mountains. We stayed in this park two times during our travels around Alaska, spending 3 nights each time. We will definitely stay in this park again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are a lot of trees at this park with a magnificent view of the countryside. They have an ice cream social once a week. The bathrooms are immaculately clean with piped in music. There is a lot of room between sites. We stayed here for 4 days on our way to Homer Alaska and then stayed here again on our way back. The staff is very friendly and professional. We're recommend this park to everyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV park packs you in like a can of sardines, the owner walks around watching your every move. The highway noise is terrible especially during the rush hour. Many other complaints but won't waste your time other than to say pass on this place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice campground, one of the nicest that we have found in all of Alaska. The grounds are very pretty, with well maintained camping places that have TREES and it is not just a parking lot. The restrooms are spotless, with very nice shower and toilet facilities. It is nice to have paper towels in the restroom as well. Laundry area has a sufficient amount of washers and dryers for guests, and they WORK. The internet is excellent, and allow people to keep in touch with friends and family. The staff and owners (who are on the premises) are friendly and helpful. All of this is at a reasonable prices. STAY HERE! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Right at the junction of Parks & Glenn highways, this is a pleasant and very tidy CG. Laundry & showers are spotless. The staff was very helpful with tour info on the area. Lots of tall birch trees make for a scenic spot, but the sites are still plenty wide for slideouts. Mountains are visible on 2 sides. The only negative: there is steady road noise due to proximity to highways. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived without reservations for the 4th of July holiday weekend. The staff was professional and found a space that we could use for 5 nights. Easy pull through for our 40 ft motorhome and tow. Restrooms are clean. No sewers available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived with no reservations during a local celebration that was going on. They were very friendly and fit us in for 2 nights. The sites are close together but our 40ft. fit nicely. The staff was friendly and they directed us around the local area. There is a wonderful farmers market/craft fair every Friday in Palmer and the campground is close to Wasilla and the Iditarod Headquarters and Museum. Our rate reflects Passport America. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It has a nice view and is a clean campground. We came here in early May and water lines were frozen in most of the park, which is understandable in Alaska in early May. They still charged full price but that was not a big deal for us. Our problem was with the attitude of the managers. They were not friendly and seemed to be overwhelmed with getting the park ready for summer. They mentioned more than once that they were "so busy" and "have so much going on." I was quite shocked at the behavior of behavior of one of them when I took my rig to the laundry room to get water. They had a long green garden hose and I told him that I would prefer to use my white water hose for filling my tank. He said in a pained way, "Everyone else is using this hose with no complaints." I told him that I didn't use garden hoses for filling my tanks. He grudgingly agreed to let me use my hose. I told him, "You are making it seem like I'm really putting you out just to use my hose." When I walked back to where the green hose was connected, not wanting to make him go out of his way to disconnect the green hose he came unglued. "What are you doing? That is private property." It's 2 feet from the laundromat! Then came the shocker. "Are you from Alaska?" he growled. "Yes," I replied. He shoots back, "That figures. You Alaskans have no respect for private property. You all think you can do just whatever you want." Quite a comment from someone from outside Alaska to a resident Alaskan on his own turf. Read some earlier reviews and you will find some similar comments. We won't be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park close to the State Fair, grocery stores and gas stations. Wooded sites accommodated our 40 ft motorhome and tow-jeep. Very clean restrooms and showers with music. Owners are very nice and directed us to local restaurants and other services. Owners kept park clean and organized. Stayed here one week in the fall and they pumped out our holding tanks (nice amenity). Also stayed here in the spring upon arriving in Alaska this year and in past years. Have recommend this park to others and will stay here again. Over the air TV and 3G AT&T service for your cell and air-card. No unruly guests or loose pets. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is average of 2 nights at 50% PA discount and 1 night with GS discount. Water and electric pull through sites, but they are on the short side. Lots of trees for shade, but no privacy. Some activities scheduled, i.e., square dance night. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice pull-through sites with lots of trees & LOTS of mosquitoes. Owners presented slide show about the Depression-era settlers from MN, MI and WI that were brought by federal govt. to live in Palmer. The Good Sam clubs in AK were having a mini-rally while we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived here on a Thursday, for a week's stay and all was OK. The office folks told us if we needed a pump out, they would assist. By Wednesday our kitchen (grey) tank was full. Since the owner was at the site next door draining their tank, I walked over and asked to have our tank emptied. I was told since we were the leaving the following day he would not take the time to pump our tank. The words he used were very harsh, not at all business like. Then, while attempting to leave in the rain, we were caught between some trees. Now we have a very big rig, 68' total so the owner came over and expressed himself with some very abusive language. He proceeded to threaten us with addition fees, for some tire tracks in the site and road from moving the entire rig, over a few feet, to get out. If you like cursing and abusive language this park is the place for you. The work campers were terrific, assisting me in the movement of the rig. I will go back through Palmer again in 3 weeks, but will NEVER stay in this park again. Being full time on the road for over 3 years; we have never treated like this, anywhere. Checked the area, and there are plenty of campgrounds to fit your needs for less money and hassle. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV park. Restrooms and showers were very clean and well maintained. Laundry was very clean and very well maintained. The only negative is that the sites are quite small. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very, very well run campground with friendly and helpful staff. There is much shade, with trees between sites. Sites are very close and the trees do nothing for privacy. The roads and sites are gravel and fairly level. We didn't use the park's restrooms and showers but we did check these out and they are very, very clean and well stocked and kept. Wi-Fi is $2. a day. We used our Verizon aircard and it worked fairly well. Our cell service also worked well. We got about 10 channels on the TV with our antenna. They only have water and electric hook-ups, but do have a dump station. The rate is with a Good Sam discount. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were able to get 11 TV channels that came in good with our antenna. There are nice trees in the park, but they do not provide any privacy between the closely spaced sites. Wi-Fi is $2 per day payable at check-in, and then you are given the security code. We had a great signal and one of the best internet connections we have had. The major problem with this park is that it is right on the highway with lots of traffic noise both day and night. Coming from Palmer the turn into the park is difficult and leaving the park isn't easy with all of the traffic. The staff was friendly and the owners appear to maintain the park well but because of the highway location and getting on and off of the highway we would not return to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park staff is very friendly. The pull throughs were a bit tight. TV not so good, only 1 out of 4 channels came in clear. WiFi was good. Good places to walk the dogs. The showers and bathrooms were immaculate. They even piped in good music. The shower was extremely pleasant and private. The sites had trees that provided shade and a pleasant atmosphere. No sewer but they did have a dump station, and for $10 someone came around and pumped your holding tanks, so you did not need to unhook. This was a great convenience and well worth the $10.00. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Restrooms and showers were immaculate with music piped in. Staff was very, very pleasant and very helpful with information about what to see in the area. My wife had medical problems and there is a very good hospital within a mile or so of the resort. Even though there are no sewer hookups they have a pumper tank that they pull around to empty your holding tanks for a small fee. Absolutely the best park in Palmer. We will stay here again on our way back from Homer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pleasant park compared to most Alaska "gravel parking lots". Every site has trees. The road is gravel. It is a very well-kept park and the workers are very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms are immaculate. The sites are in a row, close together but the trees help the look of the park. There are no sewer hookups but there is a dump station at the entrance. If you stay a week, they come around and pump out your tanks for free. Not having 50A is a fault. Our Verizon Air Card work but was slow for internet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Please read the previous review and you will understand exactly what the people that work/own here are like. I have never met ruder people. Not sure if they just have so much business they can afford to be that way or if they just don't care. If you do still decide to stay there make sure you don't get on the last row, which is next to the road. It is very, very loud because of the way the noise carries. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Homestead RV park you will wish you were at Home instead. 10:40 am I get a knock on the door " Are you staying another day"? Fact is I could not get my Rig level on this Uphill sloped lot so mercifully the answer was no. I am a retired Service connected disabled Vet. Homestead claims to cater to Vets and yet at 10:55 as I step out my door I am asked by Kathy " Do you want a half a day"? Now anyone can see my slideouts are in my, Truck is hooked to my trailer and my Jacks formerly down are now up. Bill has already asked if I am to stay I have replied "no". Bill looks to his watch shakes his head and gives me a pained look as if my staying there in that spot a moment longer will require he eat Mighty Dog canned Dog Food, and States it is after 11:00a.m. I look around at his empty park and I wonder why the need for such disapproving and rude behavior from a man with no customers. So I reply again" No, I had some cleaning to do, my youngest had spilled some food into the carpet and I was trying to get it up before getting on the road." I understand that check out is eleven, but they have an empty park in fact the only ones there are the owners and the work campers, Might I add forget a view lot is seems to only be for them as the reserve this row for themselves and when they do give them up it is for the overnighters who do not stay long. Yet here I am being harrassed as I finish securing my trailer which it is a scant 10:57 at this point. Now I paid $126 to stay four night and I feel as if I am dealing with a cheap hooker and my $2.00 is up and they are going to let me know it. It just ruined my day it was so petty and cheap. The RV business is a people business, did they bother to ask kindly what might be going on? is it to much to ask to use the spot in a nearly empty park to even 11:15? I rolled out at 11:01 vowing to never come back and to make sure to let others know this is not a friendly park. If you have to stay there leave before 11:00 because to this park you are just a number. You get the sense that once they have your money you no longer are welcome. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very neat, clean and well run park. Our site was long enough to leave our tow car attached to our 36' motorhome. Sites have only water and electric, no sewer or cable TV. Wi-Fi cost left a bad taste in our mouths - $3 for 1 hour or $10 for a day. You can drive a mile to the tourist info building and get free Wi-Fi in the parking lot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice looking park with a good location, but our site left a lot to be desired. It was a very short, very narrow pull-through site; we only have a 30 ft class A, and we had to park our toad separately at the end of the row. Love the trees but we couldn't get our awning out because of them. This is a very busy park, (it looked like 90% of the sites turned over each day), that seemed to be well run and organized. The staff we dealt with were good. We paid $15.95 for a week of Wi-Fi access. All of the services we needed were close by in either Wasilla or Palmer. We'd stay here again if we could get a better site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, but somewhat older campground near the Glenn highway, about 5 miles from Palmer, Ak. Staff is helpful and friendly. Baths and showers are very clean. Nice view of mountains. Wi-fi is extra. Sites are about 25' wide with some shaded. Overall, very nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small campground but well maintained gravel road and sites with picnic table and fire pit. I did not use the toilet and the water pump warned to boil the water. There was no dump or fresh water for refill. The sites are wooded and fairly private. It is located beside the rest area overlook of Matanuska Glacier where there is a short hiking path to view the glacier. The sites were large enough for our 30' RV. The vistas in the area are breathtaking off the Glenn Highway near Palmer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park continues to be excellent for what it provides. Lacking sewer and water knocks it down two notches. Otherwise it is a 10 for NICE manicured grassy spots. Beautiful landscaping. Pick your own Rhubarb, Raspberries, etc. Nice new tables. No fire rings but can go to the adjacent park and have one. Nice park for the kiddies. Restrooms were clean but need new paint on the floor to tidy it up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was an excellent value and quite attractive. The grounds were very well maintained with flower beds and neatly mowed lawns. The gently sloping sites were grass and generously spaced. The only hook-up was 30 amp electric but potable water and a sanitary dump station were available. The shower and restrooms were worn and just OK but clean enough to use. Good signals were available for AT&T phone and data service; several television stations were available via antenna. We would happily stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice municipal park. Electric hookup sites in open grassy area next to local park with playground. Grassy sites have some leveling challenges. Non-electric sites in forested area with good privacy. Under a small airport approach, but not much traffic. A few short hiking trails that need some maintenance. Clean restrooms. No WiFi, but reasonable 3G coverage. We'd certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm the summer park host and just wanted to get this park "in the system." We get a lot of good comments from campers and was surprised nobody had reviewed the park yet. This is a "bare bones" park run by the borough -- if you need a clubhouse, Wi-Fi, etc., you'll have to go elsewhere. But a lot of people use us as a "base station" as they explore other parts of the state and if I wasn't the park host this is the place I'd camp in the Mat-Su Valley, for sure. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The spaces are wide and absolutely nothing to get in the way of slides or awnings. When we checked in the owner said take any place that is open. We took a place in the middle of the park. Nothing special about the RV park, no cable TV but you have about 8 channel of digital TV over the area. The bathrooms/showers were adequate and clean. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground with nice grassy sites and full hookups. Close to shopping and fuel. The best part is the campground is not on the main highway and therefore very quiet, but still close enough to be convenient. The owners are very friendly and helpful. You can choose your own site. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
RV Park is outside of town in a beautiful location. Paved roads to the park, interior roads and site pads are gravel with grass between the sites. Most sites for short term are pull-through with lots of room. Close to Fred Meyer and Safeway, easy to find fuel. As mentioned there is no cable TV, but you can get over the air reception for local stations. This was a very nice Alaskan RV park with magnificent views of the mountains. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park with big and long pull through grassy sites. Park is about 3 miles from town with great views and very quiet. Was an easy few minutes to Fred Meyer shopping and fuel. Everything worked just fine and we could pick our own site. The only thing lacking was Cable TV which could be a problem for longer term stays, but we didn't really miss it. Great value: would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place. We were here in July 2012. The owner was very easy to deal with. Let us pick our own site. Stayed here on the way to Seward and came back on the way home. Great mountain views and park was very clean. Sites had plenty of room. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were in a caravan, and I cannot be sure of the regular price per night for this campground. Privately owned, well maintained, lots of grass, easy drive-through access and hook-ups. Sheltered by mountains and trees, this campground is comfortable and easy to use. A moose is frequently seen at night near the entrance and deer wander in and out. Nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is convenient to town of Palmer, easy to find and park in. Sites are grassy and relatively level. Wifi was OK unless many campers were trying to use it. Nice to have full hookups. Laundry was good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice quiet park located a little out of town. Very accommodating staff. Pull through site easy to move into and set up; not quite level side to side or front to back. Showers a little dated, but clean and well designed. Plan to stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice open little park. No traffic or noise. Showers were clean but water was only warm -never really hot. Did have plenty of private shower rooms that was nice! Wi-Fi a little sketchy but do-able. Plenty of space with nice mountain views. Laundry was good and more reasonable than others. Only complaint was someone fiddled with our trailer by changing electric jack, turning jack light on and removing some plugs. May have been some kids from another site, but weren't many in park so really don't know. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Clean facilities & friendly staff. Stayed at this park twice during our trip. On second visit, had to change sites because our rental RV did not have leveling jacks. Would definitely stay at this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with plenty of room amid a nice rural setting. Sites were long and wide and we were able to pick from any of about 30 open sites when we arrived. There seemed to be a fair number of semi-permanent dwellers here but it was not a big deal as the sites were clean and quiet and people were friendly. Nice view of mountains. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground looked like a lovely green pasture which was a welcome sight after the gravel parking lot in Valdez. However, the sites were terribly uneven. The worst of all was the noise created by the host's family. Her husband was worked on car in the garage with music blasting. Their son drove motorcycle up and down the road and across the campground. Their little girls careened through the campsites in a little cart crashing into picnic tables. We complained but nothing changed. Avoid! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only park on our 48 day caravan tour of Alaska with uneven site. Needed 4" blocks under one set of rear tires and one rear jack to get level. However, the pull through was adequate for our 40' coach and Dodge Dakota on tow bar. No cable TV and we were unable to get digital TV even though close to Anchorage. Only pay wireless at $10/day. Don't know rate because we are on a caravan tour. They did provide a covered site for a group dinner. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not sure of rate, we were part of a caravan. Previous reviews pretty much hit it. There is not compelling reason to stay here. Ok view of mountain, but they are everywhere. This might be a better option then the parks in Anchorage, but it is a pretty good drive to get there. I pretty much skip this area if on my own. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is still the best campground in the greater Anchorage area. Owner had to terminate free WiFi because of the cost. WiFi is now available by daily subscription at a cost of $10 a day. Ouch! Free WiFi available in Palmer Library. For hikers, there are a few trail-heads nearby which provide access to nearby peaks in the Chugach Mountains. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located near the Chugach Mountains in a rural setting. Access to Anchorage, 40 miles away, either by the old Glenn Highway or the new highway. Nice laundry, clean restrooms and showers. TV is over the air from Anchorage. Wi-Fi accessible in all sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a no frills CG located just off the Glenn Highway. Road noise may bother some. As said by others, the office is not regularly staffed. The staff is friendly. We stayed here in a 45-footer with little problem. We also stayed in one of two 50A sites. Internet is free and very good. We extended our stay and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Grass in between sites! Real grass! First time since we hit Alaska. The Wi-Fi is great! Lack of cable TV is not a problem. Lots of books to read and things to see in the area. The view out of our rear window is spectacular of some of the mountains in the Alaska range! The laundry room (3 washers, 3 dryers) is immaculate. Easy drive into Palmer for shopping (Safeway, Freddies, Walmart, etc.) The owner is very nice and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is easy driving to Palmer (2 miles) and Wasilla (8-10 miles). You camp on grass and it is quiet. Office is usually unattended so you choose a site and then leave the money in an envelope. Pull through sites and some with 50 amp service. We will stay here again when we come back through this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground has new owners as of May 2011. They seem very nice when we spoke to them. Nightly rate is based on a weekly rate. The daily rate is $30. Wi-Fi is included at no extra charge. The campgrounds are bare bones, but clean and neat. The laundry room, bathrooms and showers are also very clean. Each site has a table and a patch of grass. This is a good base camp for day trips to Matanuska Glacier, Hatcher's Pass, Anchorage, Wasilla, Chugach State Park, Eagle River and a number of other points of interest on the Glen Highway near Anchorage. Downsides: There is traffic noise day and night and the office is not staffed regularly. No one was here when we arrived, so we just picked a site (note on the door said to do that). The owner did come around later in the day and we were able to check in then. We needed quarters to do laundry and had to go find a bank because no one was in the office. We decided to stay an extra night and had to keep checking till we found someone in the office so we could pay. However, we would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean campground convenient to town. Fuel available 1 mile from campground. The owner/ host is very friendly and helpful. Palmer is a nice town, with good food and shops to visit. No problems with a 40 footer. Will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, level and services worked and price is right. WiFi is not included and must be purchased if needed (the Palmer Public Library is up the road a few blocks) and there is considerable road noise at night. I would use this campground again for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for two days in a 34 foot 5th wheel with full hookups. The camp sites were level and clean with grass between them. The park is virtually void of trees which makes all the pull through sites easy. The laundry facilities are clean and reasonably priced. The manager is friendly and eager to provide you information. There is some road noise but it drops off during the evening hours. We would stay here again. The price is right. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy, level pull through sites. Owner very friendly and helpful. Grass and picnic table between sites. Quiet despite being off main highway. Beautiful view of the mountains. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites are easy for a big rig to get into and out of, room for a tow car behind. There is grass and a picnic table between sites. The down side - it is located just off a busy highway; although the noise is constant, there are no trucks shifting down and few sirens. The owner is pleasant and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
