This was the filthiest park we have ever been in. Mostly full-time residents in derelict RVs. Out of 16 sites, only 2 were available. Sewer did not drain properly. Only positive was the large laundry facility. If we didn't need to do laundry, we would not have stayed. Their (old) ad on the Alaska Campground Owners Assn website indicates they're making improvements, but we saw none. We would not camp here again, nor would we recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Evidently things have not changed here in the last couple of years. The host was nice and guided us to our site. The park is flat, parking lot type. However, the road is very rough and there are weeds throughout the park. There are junk cars, a school bus, and dilapidated RVs around the park. This park does have 50 amp service, water, and sewer. The laundry room, bathroom, and showers were clean. Wi-fi was OK, slow but no more than usual from what we have experienced at most Alaskan RV parks. Rate reflects GS discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park consists mostly of very narrow sites in a large gravel area unbroken by trees or grass. The road in was potholed and the sites were not well leveled but there was plenty of room to maneuver with many empty sites. Utilities were good but Wi-Fi was too weak to connect to even though we were specifically placed in a site that had a good chance of access. AT&T voice and data service worked well. There was no road noise and train noise was minimal with soft horn once or twice per day. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rate included a Good Sam Discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The people who run the park are friendly and helpful. The sites are very long and adequately wide, but awkward because the power pedestals are close together. You have to pull up quite far to get slides out, which is OK if you can still reach the power connection. There are a couple of eyesore permanently installed trailers, but we didn't have any problem with any of the residents. They advertise TV Service, however it means if you have an antenna you might be able to pick up one or two local channels. It is NOT cable TV. Their Wi-Fi is painfully slow and unreliable, although both TV and Wi-Fi are available at the office if you want to walk up there. The park was less than half full when we were there; the sign for turn-in from the highway is easy to miss, although the website and Milepost give clear directions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large gravel lot. New power hook ups with 50 amp and water/sewer. New shower/laundry buildings. They are working on getting a better wifi to the campground. Nice owners and quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location to stop at on the way to Denali. Campground is a large gravel lot with hookups. There are a few permanent setups that are on the shabby side. It was not busy when we were there so we had the pick of locations. Extra $2 charge for dogs. WI-FI was available in the office only. Easy commute from campground to shopping, restaurants. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was OK for a one night stop for convenience to shopping. The sites are very small and separated by a narrow grass strip. The people were very nice. The laundry was a mess as some of the long term residents are allowed to wash very muddy clothes. The WiFi was not working. Dog walking was very convenient. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We probably expected too much from the park because of the positive reviews. It is correct that there is grass, but the spaces are very close together with no (none) vegetation to separate the sites. It is really a large open field with some RV hookups. Some of the hookups will be on the wrong side as you share a utility post with a neighbor. It is busy. Even though we arrived at noon, we got the last site with only 30 amp electric hook-ups – no water or sewer, so if you decide to stay here you might want to make reservations. There is a water fill and a dump station. We did not use the restrooms, but did use the laundry. Washer was $2 and the same for the dryer. The laundry was very dirty and some of the driers did not work. There is very significant road noise from the nearby highway. Our Verizon phone and data MiFi worked well here, so we did not try the WiFi. We would probably search for another place to stay next time in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a gravel lot with easily accessible pull-thru site which tend to be a bit narrow. Electrical and water connections were fine (we did not have sewer on our site). I didn't try the WiFi because the Verizon 4G worked well. Bathrooms were clean, though the shower space was a bit small and tight. Laundry was convenient. This was a pleasant place to stay for a few days, and at $25 it seemed a good value. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is hidden off the Parks Highway but has a nice setup. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Their facilities are clean, and the grounds are cared for. There is lots of room to walk the dogs. Wi-fi was good, and there was nice space between sites. We would definitely recommend this campground and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff was friendly and helpful during our stay. Our pull through site was plenty long for a 40' motorhome and toad. Site was not very level, however all utilities worked well. WiFi was not good at our site but WiFi worked very well near office. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was about the best in area. We had a pull through FHU with 50 amps. The sites are gravel with some grass in between. Very tight, but level. The Wi-Fi was almost nonexistent. Park is family owned and kept up as far as repairs. Walmart and other shopping is near by. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Family oriented RV park. They have frequent pot luck dinners where the owners provide Salmon fixed several ways for everyone You just need to bring a side dish to share. We have stayed there several times and will continue to stay there each year we come to Alaska. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park in a great location. Very close to many of the attractions in Wasilla, Palmer, and Anchorage. Huge pull through site and hook-ups were just right. Hosts never bothered us and the 3 days there were very smooth. Not really a "camping location", but great place to get ready and get shopping done before things get more expensive. I have nothing negative to say and the rating is so low because I rated it based on what I have found in the lower 48 states. By "Alaska and Canada standards" it would be an 8. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this park on two separate occasions. One of the best parks in the Wasilla/Palmer area. Nicely spaced sites, far enough away from the road to not hear traffic noises. Beautiful view of the mountains. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. No charge for showers, laundry very reasonable. If in the area I would definitely stay here again. We stayed here close to two weeks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a week after staying three nights another park in Anchorage. This location was much better. The host was great even allowing us to borrow some gold pans to try our luck on Hatcher Pass. The newer area was spaced apart and the back in circle was not close parking. The park had grass between sites. A rare thing up here. We were in a 38' fifth wheel with dually truck and had plenty of space. We would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this campground during our Alaska trip. The location between Wasilla (for the shopping and services) and Palmer (for the attractions and fishing) is perfect. The view of the mountains is beautiful. Sites were level and spacious. Wi-Fi service was very good. Office staff were courteous and helpful. Laundry and showers were very clean. If it had cable we would give it a 10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, staff was very helpful. Nice location. They added some tent sites and additional pull through sites. Clean and attractive with nice views of mountains. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV park between Wasilla and Palmer. Clean wide space some with 50 amp service FHU which we had along with pull-through site. Laundry was large and clean as well as the restrooms. These are gravel sites with some grass between them typical of what you see through out Alaska. We stayed here 4-nights and would stay here again. Convenient to the Parks and Glenn Highways heading toward Anchorage. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The nightly rate is for the week with no sewer. Very clean restrooms and very, very clean laundry room. Office staff was very nice and helpful. This is a nice campground with some space between the campers. 30 amp service and had no problems. Free internet (fast and reliable),TV 10 stations using our antenna with good reception. Good location to shopping. Would recommend and will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The staff was so friendly and personable that we returned on our way back through from Homer. The showers, restroom, and laundry are sparkling clean and well maintained. It is a quaint, quiet campground. We chose a site with electric only, but full hookups or sites with water and electric are available. The gravel lots are level. The grounds are kept up. The campground has a playground for children; a covered pavilion with picnic tables and gas grills for your use; and free Wi-Fi with your stay. Great place to stay not only to visit Wasilla, but to visit area highlights such as Hatcher Pass and Summit Lake. We stayed here in our 38 foot motor home and the site was large enough for our rig and tow car. This is definitely the best RV park in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is daily rate for 30 amp electric and water back-in with GS discount. Roads and pads are gravel with adequate maneuverability for our big rig. Park has two areas, one area has FHU pull through sites, the other area, in the form of a circle, has water and electric back-in sites though, a few are pull through. Good check-in experience, and were informed of many things to see and do in the area. Bathrooms and laundry were well maintained. There are no trees, but that meant we could use our Internet satellite. The only negative was the electric proved to be less than reliable, and our surge protector tripped several times due to low voltage. Used our voltage booster and had no more problems, though we could tell others were still experiencing difficulties. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a bad little park for overnight. Many of the sites are either pull throughs or back ins around a large center circle. This works pretty well and the spoke arrangement tends to separate the rigs a bit. However the people with pickups tend to park their pickups across the front (narrow end) of the site rather than in the back (in pull throughs). This makes it hard for the neighbor to get out of their site. The Wi-Fi was free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a typical Alaska park, a gravel pull-through, but they are super friendly. The washrooms are very clean, the laundry is also. The hosts certainly do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable and take time to greet each person that enters their park. I would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An okay place. Lots of full timers in it. Got there at 8pm; no one in office. Had to leave early next morning and again no one in office at 8:30am. Wouldn't stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice, friendly campground located between Wasilla and Palmer. Both towns have lots of things to see and do. We stayed here two separate times for a total of seven days. We would stay again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large gravel parking lot, but buildings and grounds are very neatly kept. Very nice laundry room. Convenient location for area touring. Good satellite reception. Sites have tables and fire rings. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a good average park for Alaska. It has good easy sites to park in and great people in the office. Wi-Fi was just so-so as you have to sign-up for a plan. This is a good base for travel into Anchorage since the campgrounds there are not so great. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a larger campground than many in Alaska. The sites were pull through with some space between units. The wi-fi was free and worked well in the camper. Staff was friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
After staying in a few really cramped up RV parks in Kenai, Homer, and Anchorage with rates around $40, this park was a pleasant surprise. Not only is there some space between the sites, we even had a small GRASS yard! The lady in the office was extremely helpful and the Wi-Fi access was the best we've seen lately. We would definitely recommend this park and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The wireless is not longer free. $15/week or $19/month. Lots for grass for dogs to run. We opted for a full h/u site, level gravel sites. Only able to receive 1 TV station, which is the down side to staying here but the best in Wasilla. Good park to commute to Anchorage in. Fred Meyer store was very reasonable for Alaska We camped here in a Motorhome.
Full hookup sites are located in a gravel lot, we opted for W/E which had lush grass between sites. Free Wi-Fi available at most sites. Friendly and helpful staff. Quiet setting. Excellent choice if you want to stay on the outskirts of Anchorage. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This Campground is more for tents and smaller RV's but you can camp here with a 40 ft. but limited space in other words if you don't come in on a Monday or Tuesday you could have trouble. Campground Host was very friendly and helpful one of the reasons we got parked with a big rig like we did. Pit toilets and tanked in water which i will not put in my water tank. This is a high used local park and they drive like Heck through the campground and out of it as far as that goes. Even through this was a pretty park i would probably opt not to stay here next time and use the Matanuska River Park in the Mat-Su Borough located 1 mile from Palmer @milepost J17.4 Old Glenn Highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is 90% full with long term residents, who appear to have been there for awhile. There are maybe 3 sites that would be available to rent. Not for a big rig. We did not end up staying at the park but did meet a tenant who was very nice to us and said we would probably be happier on the other side of town. It is located out of town and the location is not the best. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is basically a nice park. Unfortunately there are some really seedy looking semi permanent trailers in the middle of the park. The owner manager works days, so it is self check in. We picked a lot on the end, one of the back ins, but there were several drive throughs available. The park was clean and quiet, somewhat shielded from the highway noise. We were a bit nervous staying here at first, but now I would definitely stay here again. It is not really a family park but a lay over place until the next spot. We stayed here 2 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had planned to stay at this campground while visiting the Wasilla area, but when we drove through we decided to move on. The campground was not well kept with grass and weeds in the sites. There is a campground host, but his site was extremely trashed. Our rig is not that new or nice but it would definitely have been the best in the park. There were people loitering around and dogs, including a pit bull, off leash. We have stayed at some “iffy” spots but would not have felt comfortable staying here or leaving the RV here while visiting the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Borough (county) park, the campground roads are good gravel. The sites are rock, most are fairly level. The bathrooms are pit toilets with no running water. There is a city water spigot at entrance to campground. Campground is next to Lake Lucille. There are a few pull-through sites. Some sites are 60 feet deep but are back in. Quiet campground with plenty of trees. There are picnic tables and campfire rings at most of the sites. We would camp here again. Good trail system in the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
