Nicely landscaped, tidy and clean. Friendly and helpful owners. Unlike most places in Alaska, the owners took pride in how the park looked, and it showed. Unfortunately we were in a caravan and only stayed one night. If we were on our own, we would have stayed longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice owners, and they obviously take pride in the park. Sites were well maintained and kept up. Each pull through had hookups on both sides, so you could choose where the sun hit your rig. Wi-Fi available, but was sometimes fast and sometimes slow. Our rate reflects Good Sam discount and a "buy 6-get one night free" promotion. Easy drive to Talkeetna, grocery, liquor, and hardware stores a few miles away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price of $31.50 per day is Good Sams rate for full hookup. The restrooms are some of the best we have seen before as is the laundry room. Very relaxing and convenient stop over before going to Denali. Only 22 miles from Talkeetna, a small little tourist town where Mt. McKinley climbers prepare for their trip. The owner is very nice and the park is more spacious than others we have stayed at. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice location, clean and quiet. They do have a pet charge. Several grassy spots to walk Fido. A good halfway stop on the way from Anchorage to Denali. 20 miles to Talkeetna. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice folks at the desk but not well informed. They claimed they had "standard" electricity but didn't know if it was 30 or 50 Amp. The one night fee of $45 seems out of range when you consider there was no WiFi at the site, no water at the site, no sewer or dump site at all and no cell service. The check-in parking location was on a dead-end so everyone who checked in, had to back out. Some one-way interior roads sent you the wrong way for the angled back-ins. When asked about it, we were told to drive front-in into the back-in site. When asked how we would get the tow vehicle out, we got a shrug. Interior roads have large river rock: the kind that get stuck between dually tires. Electric pedestals were oddly located with some correctly placed at the back left side of a back-in, while others were placed at the street end of a back-in and on the right side so the cable had to be routed under the camper and the camper had to be parked at the street end of the site resulting in no tow vehicle parking space. It should be noted that while the campground is situated adjacent to Montana Creek of the Susitna River, about half the park is below flood stage and protected by a rock berm. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This state recreation area has recently been refurbished, and is now really nice! All the sites were wide, level, gravel back-ins, separated by grass. Each site had a picnic table and fire pit. One loop is along the river, the other loop is in the trees. Power is available at about half the sites (double the cost of dry sites). Main activity here is fishing, and there's a boat launch area. On-site management with nice staff and small convenience store. Arrive with RV tank full of water and gray & black tanks empty, as there is no water available, nor is there a dump site. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has been recently refurbished. Wide, level, gravel sites with picnic table and fire pit in either full sun or shade. Half the sites have 30A electric available (for $30/nt). Boat launch. Nice manager and staff. Small convenience store. No water or dump available, so arrive with full water and empty holding tanks. Wish they sold fishing licenses here. Very relaxing. We would stay here again. They do take reservations - which would be necessary during the height of fishing season. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very pleasant RV park on Willow Creek. Because they got their WiFi repaired between when we talked to them and when we arrived, we were able to get a site overlooking Willow Creek away from the main building. Very quiet, peaceful and scenic. It had only water and electric at the site, which was enough - we dumped on the way out after 3 days. While most sites were in the Alaskan gravel parking lot style, ours was a back in with vegetation, between two cabins - the park was not crowded and we could choose our site. The gravel sites seemed OK, too. Owners/staff were friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers were nice and clean. We would definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The facilities are excellent. They have showers, nice toilets and washer/dryer. The campsite locations are excellent and give you a great view of the creek. There is good fishing near the campground and great Thai food in Wasila. My only negative comment is that my three friends and i rented a pontoon boat to float the creek for $150 and two of us nearly drowned. The water current was fast and we encountered two spots where trees were obstructing our passage. The first spot we heard from the campground host later that a married couple got stranded at the same spot a month earlier. He told us about the first obstruction before we got in the boat but could not warn us properly because it is a 2 hour float and there are no signs to tell you where you are in the float. Luckily we were able to carefully move the boat past the tree. The second obstruction was a downed tree that the campground host said he did not know about. This tree was in a narrow part of the creek with a large amount of water running through it. Our boat got wedged against this free with us in the boat and water was about to flip out boat or push it with us on it under the tree. My waders began filling with water and I nearly got dragged under. My buddy was trapped on his back on a box with tree branches smashing his face as the boat got wedged beneath the tree and was either going to get rolled upside down or pass breath it. We survived by the boat submerging a little and padding under the tree as we held on to the pontoons in the water. Scary. Get a guide if you want to float this creek. It isn't a joke and the known hazards should be well marked in order to be easily avoided bc even the first tree could have killed someone less experience or someone who could not swim well and panicked. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice, quiet campground. Clean restrooms, decent laundry. Place in a central lounge that you can go to catch up on news, etc. on TV. Coffee offered to guests in the morning (a nice touch). Restrooms close at 11 p.m. but there is a portal-potty on the grounds to use for emergencies. The location is wonderful, right next to a salmon stream. They offer fishing trips as well. Friendly, kind people. This park would be nice to stay at for a quiet visit. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Front of campground is a gravel parking lot offering full hookups or W/E only. Sites in front are close together, but allow enough room for sliders and awnings. Fire pits and picnic tables everywhere. Majority of front sites are pull-throughs, with enough room for big rigs to maneuver. If you want seclusion, ask for a dry camping site in the back. Lots of space, grass and trees back there. Very safe campground for kids to walk, play, ride bikes or snag one of the many humpies in the creek. Restrooms are always clean, staff is always helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great people that own this park. Very helpful crew. Have deli on site. Very peaceful. Wi-Fi is not free but I would recommend this park to all. They have fishing guide services on site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
