What a weird place. Couldn't tell if it was an RV park or a derelict trailer court. The "office" was awful, it was like entering someone's basement that had never been cleaned. The owners were watching TV and eating peanuts at a bar and at first ignored me. I didn't realize they were the owners until finally the man asked if he could help me. The women was downright rude and seemed annoyed that a guest was asking questions. When my husband asked where the showers were, she rudely gestured over her shoulder, pointing in the direction of the showers. She clearly resented us being here. We were assigned a site, but when we parked, we couldn't connect because the services were too far away. When my husband asked if we could have another site, there were many, the women snapped at him, and only after her husband intervened did she allow us to move. Don't stay here unless you are desperate. We felt very unwelcome, it was lousy for $36. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Pretty sure this is the correct park, but not sure. Anyway if so, Wi-Fi was not accessible from our unit, had to go outside, then it was slow. Restrooms were clean, private, and modern. We would consider staying again, but in the town of Seward there are city parks closer to everything. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The Seward City RV park is much better, even without services. RV sites here are so close it is a danger to open the slides. Owners are friendly, but the park is not mowed, trimmed. Our primary parks were full: the only reason we ended up here, and one night will work. If you back in a 5th wheel, it will be a very tight fit. This park has potential, but a lot of work needs to be done. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bear Creek is basically a gravel parking lot with crowded RV slots, but we were the only people in our section, so it didn’t matter. The campground gets a little wet and muddy when it rains. All spots are back-ins with no pull-throughs. Even the dump station is a back-in, which we thought was a little odd. We did our laundry there, and they have plenty of washers and dryers in great shape. The owners were exceptionally friendly and pleasant. They have a huge selection of books that you can swap—especially lots of children books. The showers and bathrooms were also very nice. They also sell liquor and have a lot of grocery items. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The site was level and we had sufficient room to maneuver. The owner's were very friendly, and the Wi-Fi and TV connections were the best we had in Alaska. The RV park also has a bar and provides a complimentary breakfast. The dump station is a little awkward to use since it is not a pull-through, but full hookup sites are also available. We enjoyed watching the salmon spawning and swimming upstream in the nearby creek. We would consider Bear Creek one of the better RV parks in the area and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is on a paved road about 6.5 miles out of Seward. It is easily accessible. The sites are old and narrow, but fairly level, and there is room for a slide out (if you like your neighbor). It could be a lot nicer if the managers would make an effort to see that trash that collects in the driveway and around the office is picked up daily. Two nice perks are that the office sells 24 flavors of soft ice cream, and they include a small continental breakfast with your camping fee. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners went out of their way to make you feel at home. We had problems with the cable and they brought a "box" so that we could get TV, no charge either. They were able to book our Glacier trip and did a good job on it. I'd gladly stay there again. I'd also highly recommend this park to anyone staying in the Seward area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate paid reflects a stimulus discount they have this year and this is the complete rate with all the taxes/fees. Our site is level and plenty long. There is plenty of room for even big rigs to maneuver. Satellite TV has over 100 channels plus all the music channels and it worked very well with their receiver. Wi-Fi works very well. The four bathrooms are individual uni-sex rooms which have both shower/toilet in them. Owners' family lives on site and there is playground equipment available. Office area is closed from 10 pm to 8 am so the toilets are closed then. The laundry room has 6 washers and 5 dryers. They have a comp breakfast daily and also sell some groceries plus soft serve ice cream in their combo office, dining room/bar area. They offer the best amenities of all the campgrounds in the area from what we saw and we did drive-bys on all the others. Its not the most scenic but we are glad we chose it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The site were fairly wide and there was allot of room to maneuver the RV around. Cable connection was a little different. One needed a receiver for the cable which they supplied. The Internet access was good a little slow at times but over all good. It is about 8 miles from Seward so it is a little bit of a drive to get there. They provide a free continental breakfast each day. There is a salmon capture facility within walking distance of the RV park which is interesting. The park is quite and the RV sites are gravel with grass between them. The laundry facilities were just OK. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the better parks that we have been in with this caravan. Sites are fairly long, but somewhat narrow. Wifi worked well from our site. Park is located in a nicely wooded area. Seward is a must visit area when in Alaska. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We previously stayed at Bear Creek in 2005 and were disappointed in the changes we found in the campground. The Wi-Fi only worked occasionally and the staff only offered excuses, not solutions. However, the most distressing change was the fact that they lock the building housing the restrooms and showers from 10:30 pm to 8 am. Early risers and those wishing to leave early in the morning do not have access to these facilities. With these changes and the attitude of the owners, we probably would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park in quite area. Spots are well maintained. Offers free WiFi as well as free breakfast. Owners and help are pleasent and helpful. Showers and bathroom are individual rooms and very well maintained. Very nice view of the Mountains from the sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wow, this place has so much potential, great location with a stunning drive along Resurrection Bay. At the end of the road you hit this sort of ragged, community of homes? cabins? and the campground. There are a lot of sites on the water, and a knot of sites in the woods, no rational in layout, just found spots between trees and labeled them. Looks like new restrooms and shower building, but plumbing did not work, and they were poorly kept up. But frankly, staff seem to be young guys who just want a summer in Alaska, so not sure they really care about cleanliness. We were here in the rain, so the mud compounded the problem. Husband could not use restrooms in the a.m. Just plugged up fixtures. I think this site works for people who just want time on the bay with lots of recreation options. Not lots of private RV options in Seward, and we wanted reservations since we were here over the fourth of July. Have to pay hourly for Wi-Fi access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A dumpy,poorly maintained little campground whose only saving grace is the beautiful scenic beach views. They overcharge for every little thing. Dumpster overflowing,incompetent (but friendly) staff, and dirty bathrooms.The only reason we camped here was to take a fishing charter, which was cancelled due to weather. As an Alaska resident, I was ashamed of this overpriced, poor excuse for a campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had planned to stay for four nights at Miller's Landing and had paid in advance. At 11 p.m. of night one, I went to the office and asked that my next three nights of a prepaid visit be refunded/credited to me. One of the reasons that we left was because the shower facilities were totally inadequate. My husband had to move from one shower to another after he was soaped up because the paid shower facility was not taking his tokens. Then when he moved to the second shower there was cold water at the last part of his three minute shower. There were three showers in the women's restroom and only one worked. It was obvious that the handicapped bathroom had not been used: and had not been working for some time, because of the spider webs all over the place. You had to use a token (always an irritant to have not only timed showers, but to have to get tokens as well). And the other two showers would not "take" the tokens to run the shower. So they were inoperable. There was thus a long line to use the ONE shower stall. A young foreign, modest lady could not get her token to work after she had soap all over her and was uncomfortable in moving from one shower stall to another. You paid $1.00 for a 2-3 minute shower, not nearly enough to take even a moderately short shower. Then, to top it off, the shower facilities were dirty and the sink area was dirty. There was not a sufficient amount of showers for the number of people in the facility, even if they had all been working. There are many more than 50 sites shown here. The park stacks the tents and RVs in all over the place, even at places that are not actual sites. Additionally we had a site which was supposed to have water/electricity. All it had was electricity. There were NO dump facilities anywhere on the property. You had to go to the City of Seward campground to dump. You had to pay for Wi-Fi when most places that have it now offer it for free. To us the whole Miller's Landing area was seedy, run down, ragged, and in need of maintenance, clean up and repair. Furthermore, it was loud and rowdy, with hooping and hollering going on at night until 1 a.m. Then, the people who were camped way too close to us started banging pots and pans at 4:30 a.m. Not much sleep that night. We are used to "good camper's etiquette" and it was really missing in this campground. The only thing that was efficient is that my money for the three nights that we did not stay here and had previously paid for was credited to our account. I saw the poor reviews prior to booking at Miller's Landing but chose not to believe them. I should have listened. I will be turning in these comments to Trailer Life, Woodalls, and Good Sam Club. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
If you are into mosquito and mud holes then this is your place. The staff is really nice which makes it unfortunate that this place is not a better facility. Way outside of town on a terrible road the area is also very run down and while the water is scenic everything else resembles a dump. We had a view of a building under construction which was also very unpleasant. I would recommend staying somewhere else but using them for their fishing charters. They were more reasonable than anywhere else in Seward. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have parked at RV at Miller's many times over the years, the last time July 2010. Yes, it can be muddy and have potholes and mosquitoes. But it also has a friendly staff, beautiful surroundings and convenient services. We had no trouble with our 31" RV on the road to Miller's or in the campground. When the kids were small we'd take their water taxi to a beach for fishing. This year we used their charter and had a great and successful time - 48 silvers! The new building has a staff bunkhouse above and public showers and laundry facilities below. It's still a work in progress. Could use some matting to keep the water and grit off your feet after showering but I'm sure they've got that ordered. This is a family owned and operated campground and I've seen them work hard to correct problems as they appear. I love the cabin office and the porch with its rocking chairs. It's not perfect but it's Alaskan down to the mud. Already looking forward to next year! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was nasty. No dump station. Bathrooms and showers were the worst I have seen in 45 states. I had to cancel 2008 and reschedule for 2009. They don't abide by their cancellation policy and never refunded my money. They offered me a "rain-check for the next few years" and then refused to honor that. Their website is deceptive. Park along side the road, don't waste your money. City camping in town is much better and view of resurrection bay is the same. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The washroom ceiling was falling in, the walls had paint peeling. The showers have paint peeling the cleaning staff do their best with the conditions they have to work with to keep clean these conditions are deplorable for an RV park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped at a waterside site that had a spectacular view of Resurrection Bay and glaciers on the far coastline. Showers are a bit rustic, but the people are friendly and the sites offer plenty of room to spread out a bit. The park is located outside of town toward Lowell Point and is a far better option than the overcrowded campsites in town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If your rig is 40' or longer: look somewhere else. I booked online, filling out a form stating that our coach is 42' long, with slides and towing. I wanted Oceanfront only, no trees. They gave us Oceanfront alright: but it clearly says on their campground map that the site they assigned us could accommodate up to 30ft. Fortunately I saw that on the map before my husband tried to navigate the site. Went back in the office. They asked that we look at the site to see if we could make it work. The most unlevel site I have ever seen: and yes, just about 30'. Not only that but, although their web site is very nice, they fail to mention that the ONE LANE bridge near the entrance of the campground can only hold 20 tons. We were holding our breath. Obviously we didn't stay, but we also didn't hook up until we got back into town. No need to put all that weight on that pitiful bridge. Believe me, driving the little road to their campground is NOT a sightseeing wonder. It's washboard and very narrow. If you have a big coach-fuhgetabout it! They have no sewer hookups and no dumpstation. The Waterfront Park is more than adequate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absolutely awful. The waterfront sites have about a 20 degree slope, are full of boulders, and are very narrow and short. We had made a reservation months in advance and so they assigned us site #1. Well, that was the worst of all the waterfront sites. We spent 30 minutes trying to level the motorhome using rocks (!), and finally gave up. We asked to move to another site, but they said they were all reserved, even though they were vacant and they could have moved someone else to site #1. We asked for and got our money back. We had also made our reservations for a day-long cruise to the Kenai Fjords National Park through them. When we checked in for the cruise, we found we'd paid more than the posted price. The cruise line (Major Marine) was kind enough to refund the commission that the Miller's Landing campground had charged to process our reservation. All in all, a place to avoid. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Went for the fishing and this worked perfectly. The things that keep it from being a 10 was that our site was not level, there were no trees and no fires allowed. The staff were great, the area and amenities VERY clean and the access easy. There is a walk-in deep freeze is available to store fish while at the resort and a great cleaning area. The charter crew were great and we got our limit on halibut and silver salmon. Highly recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Site rate is dependent on rank. This is one of our favorite places to stay. Always clean, always safe, always quiet. It is your typical gravel parking lot, but sites are wide and level. We've always had room for the slides and awning to be fully out. Bathrooms are always immaculate, and require a key-card to enter. Max stay 14 days, limited boat parking, only 3 tent sites. Speed bumps everywhere, which makes for a very safe environment for kids to play, ride bikes, etc. Tons of quiet residential streets for long walks with the dog. Seward is a quaint fishing village, but has every amenity you need - groceries, hardware, restaurants. Sea Life Center is great for the kids, as is Exit Glacier - which is even accessible with a jogging stroller. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a campground opened to active/retired military & DoD Civilians and the rate is based on your grade. The facility offers discounts on fishing & scenic day tours out of Seward. The sites are very close together to say the least. When you reserve you are not assigned a site until you arrive HOWEVER when we arrived the site we received was too narrow to open our slides and we requested the wider vacant site 2 up from us. We were refused & told they were already taken.We stated their policy of assigning a site upon arrival but it seems a retired officer was leading a SMART tour and he was able to "cherry pick" the sites for his group prior to arrival. The woman at the desk said she had no control over this situation. We were given another site that was still tight but at least we were able to put our slides out. This campground was OK for 2 days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose to dry camp because we could be right on the water with our front window having a great view of the bay and the mountains on the far side. There were a number of birds on the water, which was nice. Our spot was level and wide enough for the toad by the side. The sites were clearly marked. There was a fire pit in front of us. It was close, but we enjoyed our three nights there. Cannot comment on hookups or bathrooms; we did not use them. We got Wi-Fi at downtown coffee shops. We would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The City of Seward has five waterfront campgrounds. This review is for Resurrection Campground with electric and water with 99 sites. None of the other city campgrounds have utility hookups. For a city-run campground, this one is exceptional. One row of sites is right on the water with fantastic views – there are two more rows behind. We were lucky enough to nab one of the water-front sites. It had strong 50 amp electrical service and water. There is a heavily-used dump station about three blocks away. This dump station is for all of the 300 or so city campgrounds, plus it seems some locals use it, so you will have to time your visit and you may want to bring some nose-plugs. The campground does not take reservations for individuals, but does for caravans of 10 or more. The check-out time is not until 4 p.m. If you have a water-front site, expect people to vulture you, waiting for you to leave. Since the campground is right on the water, expect the heavy morning boat traffic to start pretty early. Also, there is a very active pedestrian pathway that runs along the water in front of the campground, so it is a busy place, especially on the weekends. At night is was fairly calm and quiet. There are some picnic tables, but not at every site, and you can have a fire on the rocks along the water. There is a camp host, but we saw almost nothing of him. Our Verizon phone and data card worked well here. We would definitely stay at this campground again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Waterfront sites with fantastic views of Resurrection Bay and the surrounding mountains are the outstanding feature, and town is within walking distance. Park is a gravel campground with crowded, small sites. Water & electric hookups were fine, but there's no sewer available. There's no Wi-Fi, but Verizon cell modem worked reasonably well. Bathrooms and showers are dated but clean; showers cost extra. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nothing much available in the city - this was good for the 4th of July weekend. The city was very crowded due to the famous annual MT MARATHON foot race. We had a good 50amp/water 25 ft wide site on the waterfront. Be careful when you level - but it can be done. We were able to walk to downtown one way and to the small boat harbor the other way. There is plenty to do and see in both areas. We enjoyed Seward very much. Would definitely stay again We camped here in a Motorhome.
Compared to the usual parking lot campgrounds in much of Alaska, this one is a step above. The sites are on the bay and some have water and electric but not all. The view is outstanding. We stayed in the second level and thought the view was better. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I could see where this campground could be noisy especially when someone uses a construction generator. Fortunately we had a great experience: very quiet and people seem to run their generators only when they needed to. All campgrounds run by the city have an exceptional view of the water. We stayed at Marathon and I did notice some sites were parallel to the water which might be quieter than side by side if need be. This would definitely be my first pick over any private campgrounds in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived in the pouring rain and were able to get an electric site. We were one tier up from the water, but the sites up there drained much better. Many of the waterfront sites were swamped. Many of the campers had left so the place was not full at all. Being on the water was nice, but there is not a lot going on in town, and unless you fish, there is even less. We stayed 2 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an amazing place. We were fortunate to get a front row space. The sites are huge. The view is spectacular. Loved having fire pits in front of our coach plus a perfect black top bike path which goes from town to the harbor and beyond. I can't think of a better place to stay in Seward. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were in a caravan, so I cannot be sure of the cost of this site per night. This is a publicly owned campground on a beautiful waterfront. If you are on the waterfront, it would be amazing - we were not. We had tent campers around us, it was noisy with kids walking through our site until very late at night. The sites had adequate space around them and were easy to drive in and back out of. Mostly, we were bothered by the noisy kids in tents. If we were in beautiful Seward again, not in a caravan, I would request a waterfront site or go to another campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you have a large Class A and want to park against the beach area, bring an extension cord as the outlets are going to be ahead of your front bumper. We backed in on the upper level and had perhaps a better view than those on the beach front. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Please note - We stayed during the Silver Salmon Derby. It was very busy and completely full. It was extremely noisy. Generator hours are from 7 am to 11 pm. Expect to hear generators at all times. Alcohol is not allowed; however, it is not enforced. Expect loud neighbors talking or yelling beside your bedroom at all hours of the day and night. This is not the usual RV crowd. You will have to be extremely lucky to get a power site or an ocean site or you will have to waste your day stalking people to get one. Check out time is 4 pm. Campfires are allowed and expect them to be within 3 feet of your rig. Your neighbors campfires will be 6 ft from your rig. Great location. Great view of Resurrection Bay (if you are lucky). We did not see the bathrooms so expect to use a port a potty or the public day use bathrooms or you will have a long walk. Free dump available near by campground. Class C users take note - you will have to leave something in your campground site to hold your site if you leave (typically a lawn chair) - don't leave anything valuable. Campground allows people to reserve sites without being there - which meant ocean view sites remained empty for days (occupied by a lawn chair) as people were holding them for their friends. The campsite is a gravel parking lot. Your campsite is a double wide parking stall. A couple of sites had picnic tables. Wildlife viewing is possible from the campsite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a basically nice park that allows many people to camp in a clean, reasonably priced facility. It is run by the City of Seward and I'm sure was developed to control the extent of beach side camping, provide sanitary conditions for camping, and to allow many to camp in a centralized area. Dry camping without water and electricity was available for $15.00 per night. There was a small number of sites with both water and electricity that were available for $30.00 per night. There was a centralized bath house that had two shower stalls and two toilets: both for men and women. One constructive suggestion would be to have more shower and toilet facilities. People were lined up to use the TWO timed and metered showers because many truck camper and tent camper people were enjoying the area. There was one dump facility (with two holes) for all these campers as well, and you can imagine how crowded it was on the Sunday morning of the first Salmon run in July! Nonetheless, kudoos to the City of Seward for thinking about the considering basic needs of people visiting their lovely community. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
It’s a parking lot, but what a view! Right on Resurrection Bay, with mountains across the bay and behind the CG. The town keeps it very well maintained; grass stays cut; bathrooms are clean. It’s a short easy walk to downtown or to the harbor. We will definitely come back here anytime we go to Seward. Only negative: it’s a bit of a rat race when campers jockey for the waterfront spots. If you get one of the prime spots, people will ask when you’re leaving, and the moment you get ready to pull out, the “vultures” will be circling! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in Resurrection Campground which is part of the Waterfront Park operated by the city of Seward. What a gorgeous view surrounded by mountains topped with ice and parking right on Resurrection Bay! The campground is basically a gravel parking lot but the view and location negate the lack of privacy. I regret that our site did not have a picnic table or fire pit. We chose an electric/water site near the bathhouse which was clean with running water and clean, hot showers for $2.00 for 10 minutes. We could walk anywhere in town that we chose but they also had a free trolley that ran about every 30 minutes that would pick you up and take you to the Small Boat Harbor or Alaska Sealife Center. There is a paved hiking/bike trail along the Resurrection Bay and afforded the opportunity to see sea otters, eagles, and cruise ships along with the exercise. There is a dump and water to refill convenient for all campers. We stayed in Seward 2 nights and I would strongly recommend the Kenai Fjords National Park Day Cruise. We saw every marine life on their Wildlife Checklist and they were eager to stop every time one was spotted. The interpreter was knowledgeable and loved his job. We were served a chicken caesar wrap for lunch on this 6 hour cruise. It cost $139 but you can use a coupon in the Northern Lights Coupon Book for buy one get one free. Be sure to call ahead because they limit the number of coupons that can board. We also came very close to a calving glacier on 2 occasions. It was exciting to see and hear. Also, the Alaska Sealife Center is a great aquarium right on the bay that rehabilitates marine life and birds. They have quite a collection and the habitat is clean. I regret that we did not hike to Exit Glacier but we ran out of time and you had to drive up another road to approach it. I read that it was a spectacular experience. Our camp experience was memorable at Resurrection Bay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located right along waterfront. There are 3 sections to this campground: Marathon (dry), Resurrection (dry & some W/E sites), and Iditarod (dry). Dump nearby; drinking water also available. We camped in Resurrection with water and electric. Site was not level, but the view of Resurrection Bay was spectacular! Restrooms got lots of use but were cleaned daily. Has a Hike/Bike trail, and is within walking distance to everything in town. It's a short drive to other amenities (Kenai Fjords NP Visitor Center and tours; Seward Visitor Center and restaurants). Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Iditarod is a gravel parking lot with large wide spaces and allows over night parking. It is located next to the paved day use RV parking next to the Sea Life Center. Ten spots are right on the ocean and you can view sea otters from your windshield. It is very convenient to all of the shops and restaurants in town. There is a dumpster for garbage, and the sites are numbered and lined out. There are no other conveniences. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for three nights in the park called Marathon and we backed up right to Resurrection Bay. This is probably one of the nicest boondock situations we have encountered. Our site was wide enough to accommodate both our rig and truck. We would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I think they called the lot we stayed on: Resurrection South. Had no hook ups, but we were just across the street from the dump station and water. It is also just walking distance from the docks and shops. We stayed for 5 nights with a great view of the bay. Our site had a stone fire ring. The campground Host was very, very helpful and accommodating. Rules are enforced, we had no problems with late noise. We loved this place and would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Same as others' experience. We dry camped for five nights at the Itiderod park at the southern end of the town, with an unrestricted view of the bay and mountains. The most fabulous view in our three years of FTing. $15/night, max two weeks. $5 to dump plus good city water. Wide backin spaces, long enough for our 35' trailer. Very nice town. Lots of wildlife activities. Would have been a 10 with utilities. But we wouldn't trade the view, and our little 10 space park was quieter than the larger ones further north. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Had electric & water back-in site right up by water!! An amazing place to stay!! We would have been there 2 or 3 nights if we had arrived prior to Memorial Day weekend -- city doesn't take reservations and because of warm sunny weather the campground was packed over the holiday weekend. We had to wait til mid-day Monday to get a site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in the Resurrection Bay section of the city campground. We were basically camped in a parking lot, but we still had some of the most gorgeous scenery I’ve ever seen. We parked right on the beach—any closer and we would have been in the water at high tide. We saw all kinds of animals in Resurrection Bay—otters, eagle, loons, cormorant, jellyfish. Our site had water and electricity with a dump station around the corner. The campground is supposed to have a bathroom and maybe a shower, but we didn’t use them. The RV slots are close together, and there aren’t enough picnic tables, but there were plenty of fire rings and some benches next to the beach. We loved the bike path and nearby playground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I would have given this campground a 10 if there were more showers available. It's a wonderful location right on the bay. Our site was just below the one and only shower for all 300 sites. The sites were level. Odd that the utilities were not on the first row immediately on the bay, but one row back. Because the campground was only 25% full, no one parked in front of us. It was great to sit in our RV and watch the boats come and go, the otters playing on the water, and people taking an evening stroll. A bald eagle flew over one day as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is actually a series of three more or less separate camps along the bay between the tour boat terminals and downtown Seward. The best, smallest and most intimate is the last one going south. Mind you all are gravel parking lots except for some grassy tent sites, but the view is wonderful. So close to the water I was worried about high tides. There is a city-run dump and fresh water facility across the street. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When all of the RV sites along the city's waterfront are full, they open up one of the softball fields. Everything is dry camping on level gravel, and parking is somewhat flexible so big rigs can shoehorn in. There is an inexpensive city-run dump station and water fill located nearby. Sites are first-come, first-served and can be "saved" once paid for. We were there over Independence Day and almost missed out on a space when we arrived on July 1. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great views: right on the bay, with views of many boats, coming and going all day. Located about 1/2 mile from town. Sites are pretty level and not too close to neighbor. There are sites with and without hook-ups. Huge campground with a great location to town and the boat harbor. Fire-pits and benches are available right next to sites and a sidewalk to town. Rest rooms are old and about what one would expect for a city campground. Quite useable though. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are scattered, specific areas for city camping and not all areas have the same type of camping. Not all have electric. It's best to get specific information online. There are no reservations. The sites are close together on gravel but the views of Resurrection Bay are a #10. Many sites are 20 yards from the Bay. Site type varies from tenting for $10, dry camping for $15, or Electric and water sites for $30. There is a central dump station with water fill. There are multiple water spigots throughout; there are flush and vault toilets. Showers are available at a couple of places. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were able to camp at one of the sites that has electric and water-none have sewer. It was not right on the waterfront but we still had a very nice view of Resurrection Bay. All sites are on a gravel parking lot with the sites separated by a painted line and all are back-ins. The site width was generous enough for our big fifth wheel and four slides and we still could park the truck alongside, although it was a little tight. It could be difficult to maneuver when either backing in or leaving depending on how big you are and the rig next to you and/or across from you is. Our site was a little low in front, but most of the others looked pretty level. The interior roads are gravel and in good condition. It's convenient to walk to downtown, Sea Center or to the harbor area. The views are beautiful. There is no wifi and the tv antenna picked up 2 channels. There is a dump station down the road. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We felt very lucky to get water front site #R97 with 50 amp electric and water. The site was a level, gravel, pull-in with utilities in front. We couldn't take advantage of the 50 amp electric because our cord wouldn't quite reach but we didn't need it. The site was wide enough for slides, awning and parking the toad to the side of the RV. We have a 30 ft class A. The view was incredible. We loved the smell of the ocean and watching the ships, boats and wildlife right in front of us. A very busy park but once we got settled the activity was not distracting. The dump station is across the street with two ports for dumping and two stations with potable water. It was easy in and out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to camp on the waterfront. Mostly gravel with great view and fishing access. It cost $25.00 for electric/water hookups if you use them or not, and $12.00 for dry camping, first come first served basis. Sites are pretty close together but with room for slide outs. Showers are available at the boat harbor a short walk away. Free dump station across the street, easy walking to town and boat harbor. Gets pretty windy at times. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice campground to just sit and enjoy the view of the beach and ocean. The walk way is right in front of your RV window but thats ok. Within walking distance to almost everything. Not all sites have hook-ups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
W/E sites are usually reserved by caravans. We dry camped on the waterfront and thoroughly enjoyed our stay so much we extended. Essentially gravel parking lot extending along entire waterfront of Seward. First come, first serve, take your space, fill out slip and put in self serve pole. Dump station available. We watched eagles and the many fisherman trying their luck. Use generator etiquette. It is chilly and you will
need heat at times. We camped here in a camper.
Great park with huge sites. Everything was very nice including grassy areas. We were allowed to set up our screen room and pop up. We stayed in the creekside sites and could hear the water all night. I can't say the sites in the middle were any good. They seemed crowded and looked like every other RV park in this state. Spend the couple extra bucks and have a much better experience. We stayed here in a 40 ft and our friends in a 40 ft were next to us. Management never bothered us and were very accommodating. We booked for one week and extended it another week. First campground in three months + in Alaska that looked like a campground . We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the best parks we have stayed in in Alaska. Original plan was for a week, and we extended our stay by 4 days. We enjoyed a site on the river. The Internet and cable worked great. The site was level and we had plenty of room for our awnings, a screen room and a picnic table. The park was clean and people walked the park daily, making sure everything was tidy and in working order. If you stay here, be sure to get a site on the river as the interior sites are like every other Alaska parking lot RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stoney Creek RV Park is about 5 miles out of Palmer, and about 8 miles from Exit Glacier (the hike to the glacier's edge was spectacular)! Sites are gravel with a bit of grass between, fairly level, and ours was a pull through, though it was necessary to disconnect the towed to fit in the space. Picnic table on site. Group fire ring. Stoney Creek is actually a fast moving river of glacial waters running alongside the RV park. Nice mountain views. Laundry has 4 washers & 4 dryers with all machines working well. Two fifty each. Shuttle bus to Palmer goes several times each day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park outside of the hustle and bustle of Seward. Sites were spacious and level. No landscaping in the interior, but lovely wooded and grassy areas on the perimeter. Staff friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Road leading into the park a bit narrow and bumpy, so pay attention! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground sites are gravel and fairly level. Sites are very close to each other with little or no grass/weeds. Park needs some TLC in MHO. Utilities worked fine and had good placement. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pull through, but tight and close to neighbors. Campfires allowed making it constantly smoky all over the campground. Clean restrooms, showers and laundry room available. Long rough road entrance, dusty sites although level. Friendly staff, but not familiar with campground computer program so we had to move around and spent the day unhooked on the side of the grass, as did several others. Will try another park next time we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is about 6 miles from downtown Seward, but it’s worth the trips into town for the scenery, amenities, and setup. It is on a creek, and the spaces are nice and large. All hookups worked well: cable TV, wifi. There was a resident eagle flying around in the evenings. Very friendly and helpful personnel, and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with previous reviews. It is a nice park, but I almost missed one of the signs driving in. It is a roundabout drive and one of the signs is up high on a post and back in the bushes. The only minus I would point out is the fact that there are only two washers and two dryers. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the best campgrounds that we have found in Alaska. I agree with the positive comments of others, but found the office staff to be very friendly. Very quiet, lots of eagles flying overhead. Campfires allowed. Very good Wi-Fi. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is off the beaten path. The spaces are wide and easy to get into and out of. The park is large and very quiet. There is a stream running next to the park and is very relaxing. The showers/bathroom area is large and clean. Nothing special, but nothing wrong either. Internet was good and they had a few channel on the cable. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Being outside Seward was a plus for us. It is only a 10 minute drive to town, which is a major tourist trap. It rained the 3 days we were here and for several days before we arrived. The other parks we saw were major mud holes. The roads and sites at this park are well drained and stayed reasonably mud-free. There is not any landscaping, but few Alaska campgrounds pay any attention to landscaping. The Wi-Fi and cable worked well. We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. We left a day earlier than we had prepaid, and they readily gave us a refund. We did not particularly like Seward, but if we came again, we would definitely stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I probably would have rated this campground higher, except the management doesn't seem to care. Check-in wasn't too pleasant because manager seemed to be bothered we were here. Bathrooms were fairy clean, though wastebaskets were overflowing. Laundry only had 2 of 3 washers working; change machine wasn't working. Sites are large, Wi-Fi was pretty good, Verizon phone signal was excellent. We stayed here 8 years ago and liked it better then. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good park. Lots of room for units of any size. We had a riverfront site and it was wide and deep. These only are 30 amp but not an issue for us as we didn't need AC; pull throughs are 50 amp. The non-riverfront sites are basic gravel with nothing to separate them. Only issues are the road into it needs to be graded, and if you want to be in Seward quickly it is a ways out. There is a shuttle and the tours come to pick up so location isn't that big an issue. Don't get views as the parks in Seward, but a lot more space. The Wi-Fi was strong and stable. I'd stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice flat sites with plenty of room compared to most in Alaska, and very close to Seward. Found the staff friendly and helpful. Washers and dryers were $2.50 per load. We stayed for four nights and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground has potential, BUT weeds were growing under the picnic tables and all around. There were four washing machines. The three days we were here, two of the washers were out of order. Office staff was unfriendly and not helpful. The campsites were certainly not large, but adequate. Not one of my favorite campsites in Alaska. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the few campgrounds in Alaska or Canada that actually had Wi-Fi that worked and worked well. We stayed in a back in site (but most sites appear to be pull through). Other than the lack of a scenic anchor (i.e., beach or glacier view), this location was excellent. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Stoney Creek RV Park brochure is deceiving unless your site is in the creek. The sites are short and close together, and the so called grass in between the sites are only weeds. This RV park is unkempt and run down.The people that work here are rude, unfriendly and unhelpful. Their rules are posted on the window, but they do not tell you about them, so no one abides by them and they do not enforce them. Dogs are allowed to run around without leashes, and no one drives the speed limit, which makes the park dirty and dusty. Before you stop here, drive into Seward to see the beautiful views and friendlier people at the other RV parks in town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is 6 miles from Seward in the middle of nowhere. It is quiet with gravel entry and sites but needs some TLC as far as being very dusty and the grass badly needed mowing. We checked out the public sites in town which have beautiful views over the bay and mountains so we would much prefer to be there as they are in a far better position. This park has cable and good Wi-Fi but being so far out of the way we would do without those to be closer to town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. Sites well spaced and grass between most. There sites available stream side but view of stream obscured by brush. We looked at the downtown public sites and for the life of us couldn't understand why anyone would want to stay there. Stoney Creek is much better, quieter, better facilities and for only a few dollars more. We'd come back We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean RV Park, located on a river and is very quiet. The sites are wide and long and easy to maneuver. The park is 10 minutes from downtown Seward. We enjoyed eating at the Marina Cafe and visiting the SeaLife Center. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It's okay. Sites are a little wider than most "parking lot" campsites, but you still have your neighbor's sewer connection in your front yard. My impression was that management caters to caravans, and will squeeze in individual campers as they see fit. Wi-Fi worked fairly well and TV was basic, but worked. Several loose dogs roaming the area. Would probably look for another place next time, but honestly didn't see any better driving around Seward. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is about 5 or 6 miles from Seward and not too far from Exit Glacier. The park is in a residential area, but signage is good on locating it. A stream runs on one side of the park with tall trees surrounding the rest of the park. We had a pull-through, 50 amp, full hookups, Wi-Fi was fabulous. Very nice park, beautiful area with wonderful views of mountains. Seward is fun to visit with some decent restaurants. We enjoyed the Sea Life Center. The town does get crowded when cruise ships are in port. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here every 4th of July and this year didn't let us down. The staff is super friendly, the spots are large and wide with plenty of grass. They've added true Wi-Fi to the park, so every spot gets access (previously was only in the office or spots close to) Large grass area for kids to play. Would be a 10 if they had a playground, but I've yet to find an RV park in Alaska that does. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is set in a quiet and scenic area north of Seward. It provides good utilities including WI-FI and about a dozen cable TV channels. Limited grassy areas are somewhat scruffy but provide a visual break from the well-graveled sites and interior roads. Most sites have picnic tables or stone fire rings. Facilities are neat and clean. The directions/map available on the website was very helpful since the park is several turns off the highway. Roads to and within the park were easy to maneuver. The price reflects the weekly rate for full hookups. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our third stay here, and we will definitely come back when in Alaska. Sites are level, electricity is good, WiFi works very well, and cable TV worked, even though limited. Although it rained every day that we were here, there were no problems with standing water or drainage. We will definitely come back when in Alaska again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We LOVE this park!!! They have clean bathrooms and showers, and super friendly staff. There is tons of room for the children and pets to play. The spaces are nice and large and easy to access. The only downside is that not every spot has the ability for camp fires, but I also understand that it's driven by the fire marshall, so they can't really do anything to improve that and the wireless internet is only in the shower building. It doesn't extend to the RVs (we were lucky that we were parked right next to the building so we were able to pick up a signal, but that is a rarity) It's by far our most favorite park in Seward (and we've stayed at a few). We go there every summer and each year, we are never disappointed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped in a full hookup pull through site which was quite unlevel. It was also quite muddy due to significant rainfall. No complaints about the services. Mountain views are spectacular. Overall much better than some other Alaskan RV parks we have seen or camped in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A bit out of the way, but also quiet. We did occasionally hear neighborhood dogs barking. Sites are all in a large gravel area with grass at the edges. Wi-Fi worked well and there was also an "internet cafe" room. Driving into Seward was no problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a wonderful, quiet site. It has lots of room and the persons in the office were more than helpful and friendly. It rates one of the best we have stayed at. We used a full hook-up site and found we had plenty of room. My wife and I enjoyed the neighbor's dogs visiting: they were both cute and well behaved. Needless to say they had lots of tit-bits. My wife and I would strongly recommend this site and will personally stay here again. Well done owners! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Rate shown is based on a week's stay. The road into the park gets muddy when it rains, and there are some potholes. Interior roads are much better. We had a back-in site that was nice and wide and plenty long. The park also has creek side spots, which appear to have more grass. The back-in sites are mostly gravel. The park was quiet the whole week we were here - there are very few long-term residents. The on-site laundry was clean and all equipment worked. Wi-Fi worked very well, as did the cable TV. The park is just a short drive out of Seward. We would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Level, peaceful, and all services worked. The WiFi was intermittent but worked sufficient for our needs. The road into the campground was a wide gravel road that was significantly potholed. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is big and open with some pull-in or back-in sites close to the creek. The remainder of the park is basically a big open area with sites that are much closer together than those along the creek. The first site we had was full hookup and the power wasn’t the best but after requesting another site for our next night, due to being kept up until 1 am by the people next door who ignored the 10 pm quiet time, we had water and electric only and the power was much better. Both of these sites were along the creek. The WiFi and cable worked well at both of the sites. As mentioned before the road to the park is about ¼ mile through a residential area on a gravel-dirt road. The road got worse with mud and potholes during our stay because of constant rain the two days we were there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Probably the nicest park in Seward. Not all sites have sewer, but they have a dump station. Several sites face the creek; however it's hard to see the creek. Nice space between sites, good fire rings along the creekside. Wi-Fi in our site along the creek was strong. Several bald eagles in the campground made for a pleasant stay. We camped here in a 45' motorhome and had plenty of room, however there is a dirt road leading into the campground with trees which for us was not a problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This could be a nice park with a little more attention to the amenities. We had a nice pull-through site that allowed campfires. The WiFi was unusable if another rig was parked between us and the office, which it always was as the park stayed at least 90% full. The "satellite TV" they advertise only has 12 channels and 5 of those didn't work (including CBS). Three of their four washers were supposed to be repaired but were not. Their power management is also a little suspect as we kept losing power "because too many people were using their air conditioners!" Closer examination revealed they were using one 50 amp breaker to supply two 30 amps sites. This isn't going to work for big rigs with EMS systems as the rig next to me had. The park is ran by a couple of very young people who didn't seem to really care if anything worked. I would not stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was one of our favorite RV parks. We had a nice site with trees that overlooked the creek. Nice bathroom and laundry facilities. Shuttle service to Seward available for $5. Not all sites have trees, and several are just in the middle of a gravel lot - so I would suggest calling ahead if that's important to you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Helpful staff but has a "run down" feel about it. All previous comments are pretty much spot on. We booked a stream site over the winter but when we arrived the site number had changed from our email confirmation - so check before you come if you want a specific site. Laundry needs refurbishment/repair - machines are VERY slow and expensive. The shuttle to town "needs maintenance" but staff will try to arrange something. The site is indeed in a lovely spot but with a little more work it could easily rate a 9 or a 10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel and grass park with spacious sites along creek. Nice park, but 6 miles from town, and feels like it could be anywhere. Very rough, potholed road into park. Nice mountain views. Good satellite reception. Shuttle service to boat tours. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is situated a short distance outside of Seward with a beautiful mountain view. The sites are gravel and large enough to park the toad. They allow RV washing at no extra charge. There is a shuttle to and from the boat tours. The road going into the park has some potholes. We were able to get out on our satellite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We rented an RV in Anchorage, our first attempt at RVing, we have "roughed it before" in cabins, but never in an RV, this campground was everything we hoped to find in the rest we had booked along the way, friendly people, level sight,spotless showers and bath rooms, we saw bears in the stream, moose wandered into the campground, hiking trail, close proximity to Seward, the tour companies come to the campground to pick you up if you are taking a cruise into the Fijord National Park, internet access was free and dependable, it was a pleasant first time experience for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park by Alaskan standards. No grass, but large sites, nicely spaced and enough room for a large rig to maneuver easily. The access roads are local residential roads, with many potholes when we were there, and a bit tricky for a big rig, but manageable. Great views all around. The laundry is a bit small for the size of the park, but everything works. The shuttle for the boat tours out of Seward will pick up and return you to the park. We liked this park a lot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is clean and well-run. We liked the setting--lots of trees and a pleasant stream (to which to listen, not in which to swim!). The staff was courteous and helpful. Getting to the park off the Seward Highway is a little tricky for a large MH--dirt roads with several turns--but the signage is clear. Although we didn't use the service, several of the local tour companies ran their shuttles to the park. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were all clean and well-maintained. The laundry included recent-model front-loading washing machines and dryers. We would definitely come again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great RV park in Seward & one of the best in Alaska. The only reason it did not get a 10 is that it is 6 miles from the town. But for $5 a person, the park will drive you down to town and pick you up. Not a bad deal. We did this during the 4th of July, and it worked out great. The park is next to a large stream which was good for walking your dogs. It sits far enough away from the main road for a nice quiet stay. The Wi-Fi was pretty good, but then again we were parked right next to the main building. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful location, short rive to Seward. Camp sites were ample, but required a bit of leveling. We had problems with the 30 amp service at the site, so used the 20 amp outlet. Laundry washers were in good condition, but small. WiFi worked well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place was clean and neat. The Wi-Fi worked in the coach; I was on stream side across from the antenna. The showers were clean and free. It was about six miles to town, and some shuttle buses showed up. Owners have cute dogs, and they are free roaming, so watch your step. Unfortunately some of the campers near me thought that meant they could let theirs roam also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Can't say enough good things about Stoney Creek and the wonderful staff. Beautiful location, great sites, full hook-ups, shuttle service to town. This one is a must-stay if you're going to Seward. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we made reservations online last November, we reserved a site with a full hookup. When we arrived however our site was not a full hookup. I highly recommend calling the park instead of depending on the online reservation system to get what you want. Also the wireless internet was not working while we were there. Another guest asked the management about it and was told it should be working. The park is nice and clean in a beautiful setting, but we were disappointed in not getting the sites we thought we had reserved. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Best by far in Alaska. Dirt road entry from highway but well worth it. Eagles soar all along the creek with mountains on the other side. A perfect setting and only 6 miles from Seward. We stayed for a week and made reservations again for August. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park. Down a couple of dirt roads, but worth it. Has reasonably large pull-through sites (and some back-in) with full hookups, cable TV and Wi-Fi that works included in the price. They don't try to kill you with extra charges. Staff is friendly and helpful. Has a glacier-fed creek on one side and beautiful mountain views on the other. Well maintained grounds. Overall, an excellent park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
For Alaska this is a 10. First class staff and facilities. The sites are wide and long. Truly Big Rig Friendly. Cable TV & WiFi that actually reaches your site. They even allow you to wash your coach at your site!!!The only negative there are only 4 washers & dryers $2.50 to wash, $1.50 to dry 45 min. However, I was the only one there so there was no problem. This park fills up so make your reservations. We would come back, and there seems to be a positive attitude about the park from the other campers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stoney Creek RV Park was our favorite out of all we stayed in this summer. The creekside site that we occupied and nice grassy area going down to it made the park a step above the basic gravel "parking lots" that we saw so many of. We enjoyed being outside of Seward about 6 miles, especially since we were there during the busy July 4 week-end. The park provides a shuttle van into town and we found this quite convenient. The laundry area was nice and the office has a small supply of non-perishable items for sale if you run short on cereal or like products. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The resident managers are incredible. The park is clean, roomy, and one of the best we have encountered on this trip. We changed our plans to stay here for another 10 days just because it is such a pleasant environment. We will plan future trips to include this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
