Very tight roads and sites. The park woods need some trimming. Really no complaints other than overcrowded. Park had a log cabin meeting pavilion with fireplace and couple of picnic tables to warm up and talk in the evening. The "Wolf's Den" restaurant on site is excellent and unique. Only stayed one night. Would we stay again? No. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here because of the review in the Alaska Camping book. I would have to say it is overrated in that book, in my opinion. It is right on the highway. The really pretty sites in the woods are all tent sites, which is too bad for us, nice for tent campers. The RV sites are mostly all in a big gravel parking lot, but there are a few that back up to the highway, but are in the trees. We chose one of those and because we have a front bedroom, we were not bothered by highway noise at all. The gentleman who runs the place was somewhat gruff with us. We asked for help with the Wi-Fi and he seemed annoyed. Some sites have TV hookups and many do not. It has a wash station for RVs but it wasn’t working when we were there. We did enjoy a meal at the Wolf Den attached to the park. I guess we were expecting more from the park, given the great review. We were somewhat disappointed, and the next day, moved. We had planned a two night stay but only stayed one night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great little park. We used it on the way back from Alaska; wish we would have used it on the way in! Front desk was very nice and explained what was available. Water and 30amp, plus excellent Wi-Fi. They do have cable but we were also able to pick up satellite. Did NOT have to disconnect. I would recommend this park over others in Whitehorse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has potential but needs a little help. The roads are narrow because of the trees and has tight turns. The pull through sites are long enough but they are hard to turn into and get out of because they are so close to the neighbors. The owner is a gentleman from Sweden who plays the accordion at about 9:30 pm which is a little late for some people who want to get up and out the next day. Sites and roads are gravel. There is an RV wash on site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is probably one of the better parks in the Whitehorse area, but that is not saying much. We camped in pull through site number 9 which was long enough for our rig and truck but quite unlevel. Site widths are extremely narrow - too close to our neighbors. There is only water and electric at the site and a dump station. There are trees in the park which give you a better feel than some of the other parks which are ugly crowded parking lots. The park is about 15 miles from Whitehorse near the Skagway turnoff. Wi-Fi seemd to work OK. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for 30 amp with water pull thru. Gravel roads and pads are narrow with branches in need of trimming. Dump station is aligned to used only as you exit the park. Wi-Fi worked, then it didn't work, then it did, though when it worked it was fast. For a visit to Whitehorse is a long drive, so the park is best for a one night stop over. Apparently many people stop just to eat at the restaurant located beside the RV park. After one night we moved closer to town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a nice park with shaded pull through sites. The managers were excellent - even agreed to let our dog out for a walk while we went to Skagway. They have good rates and are welcoming. We would recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park with lots of trees. The pull-through sites are tight - we chose a spot with a small building and trees on one side and fortunately the coach next to us on the left did not have slides. The site was level. Wi-fi was reliable. The dump station was easy to access. The park is quiet, even though it is fairly close to the highway. It is about 15 minutes from Whitehorse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is clean and well run. As mentioned by others there is no sewer at the sites but the dump station is easy to access upon exit. Wi-Fi worked fine and the Wolfs Den restaurant which is adjacent to the site has good food and service. The only negative is some of the trees cut stand a trim. We would definitely camp here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was clean and fairly well maintained. The interior roads are gravel and in good shape. The pull-thru sites are gravel and they are fairly level. There are quite a few trees but not as many in the pull-thru area. The bathrooms and laundry were very clean. The owner was friendly and helpful. There are no sewer hookups but they have a convenient dump station. The pull-thru sites are narrow. It's about a 15 minute drive into town which is not inconvenient and contributes to the peaceful ambiance of this campground. There is some road noise although it's not too bad. There is a restaurant within easy walking distance that has excellent food. The Wi-Fi is excellent and the cable TV has about 3 stations. We would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Of the 3 parks here in Whitehorse, we liked this one the best. The water pressure is a little high, and you have to use a dump station but the sites are mostly shaded, our party (3 rigs) was able to get all our rigs in, including a 40 footer. The camp has a Swiss flavor (the manager and staff all seem to be swiss) and many of the guests are European. The facilities are mostly spotless, the wifi is good from the center, and the laundry is $2. They allow clothes lines so we air dried our as the dryers are $3 for 50 minutes. There is a Swiss restaurant on site that serves authentic schnitzel and yagersschnitzel. Compared to many of the places we have stayed recently, this is one of the better ones. They seem to adjust their rates according to demand, or perhaps because demand is down here, they have reduced them. We paid considerably less than the posted price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park for the area, and the owners are extremely friendly, but they are new to the business. The trees have overgrown and need to be cut back (you big rigs will touch some leaves -- now whether it does damage or not depends on your driving skill), also we saw a motorhome sink into the ground. They opened early for the season and obviously were not prepared. Maybe if you go in july or august they will cut back the trees and work out the "bugs". The location is far from town, but if you want a place to camp, it has a good atmosphere. The owners are truly excellent, though, and I think you should ignore this review come the 2010 season We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground and very friendly staff. Sites are gravel and level. Easy access throughout the park. Cable TV is limited to 4 channels. Full private bathrooms with shower, sink, and commode are clean and modern. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
WiFi free is available for only 30 minutes per 24 hour period. If you're looking forward to using a service such as netflix this will not work. Also, if you are wanting to post pictures/videos of your travels this is also not possible. Paying extra for wifi access still will not permit streaming, including updates to cell phones etc. Cable tv offers no movie Channels mostly news and weather. Altogether a nice park though. We stayed a week. We tried to use the bus service but that was really confusing. No benches at the bus stops, no shelters and trying to get back to the park, we were left high and dry by the bus about 2 miles short of the park. And told we could walk from there! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park and would've gotten a "10" if it weren't for the fact that we got blamed for causing a 4 site circuit to fail. It was warm when we pulled in on a Saturday and we ran our air conditioner. After a while, the power failed. They blamed us and we were told we could stay at the park but we couldn't plug back into the electric. We had to basically dry camp for 2 nights until Monday when we took our motorhome into the repair shop and after extensive testing, were told that there was nothing wrong with our unit and that others have come in from this park thinking something was wrong with their electricity when in fact, it is the park. You can't have 30amp service on 4 sites with others running air conditioners and not have something happen. The park is nice with decent space between units and is close to town, so it's convenient. Just beware if it's warm, you might get blamed for a power outage! We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice RV park that does not cater to caravans. We had a site wide and long enough for all 4 slides on our 40' motorhome without encroaching on the neighboring sites. Wifi was sporadic; worked best in the gift shop/office building. Car/RV wash worked well. Easy on/off highway and good access into downtown Whitehorse. We did see where some campers were using the bus line to get into town; but didn't do this ourselves. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Slots are a bit narrow, but park is well maintained and close to city. Wi-Fi is an extra charge $6 per day. Also, there is a repair shop nearby (Fireweed RV Services) that has a large selection of parts and does terrific repairs. Coming off Alaska highway you can wash your rig in the park and get repairs done nearby. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a pretty park, very convenient to downtown Whitehorse. We were able to ride our bikes to the SS Klondike. The RV Wash was a very welcome feature. The WiFi was truly free of cost and steady. The showers were great! Unlimited hot water and the stalls were very private with plenty of space for dressing. The sites were close together which might cause problems when the Park is totally full. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Impersonal but well run Good Sam park: This is basically a big, well run Good Sam park, with minimal character. It would have felt cramped had it not been pretty empty when we came through, though the modest attempt at greenery between sites helps a little. Services were clean and tidy. All services were available. Remember to get change for the laundry BEFORE the office closes! The little essentials and souvenir shop which is part of the office is cute and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Check in was easy and friendly. I asked a couple questions and got good answers.The site was good. The area was quiet. My GPS swore that the park entrance was accessed from the main highway. However, it is not, and it is better to watch for the RV Park signs and turn as shown. We camped here in a Tent.
We stayed at this RV Park in July 2013 and returned August 2013. We are traveling with friends and they provided us with side-by-side sites (buddy sites). Although the site is gravel, it was level, average size and enough space to park our tow behind our RV. The front office is very nice with extremely informative staff -- they even helped us schedule a tour and made arrangements for the tour bus to pick us up at the park. Laundry facilities, bathrooms, RV wash were perfect for us. Without a doubt, we would stay here again (and we just did). We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is wooded making for pretty scenery & shaded sites. It also means you don't get a satellite signal. The laundry was clean but very crowded and not very large. The gift shop/office was quite nice. The park is close to downtown. It has an RV/car wash. We had no problem with the electric dropping like we did in another park in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean washrooms, showers and laundry area. Office and store are in an impressive log building. Site is large but easy to navigate. Only drawback are aircraft approaching or leaving Whitehorse airport - good news is that there were no night flights. Would stay here again We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This park does so many of the little things right, it's really a pleasurable stop. It is conveniently located near the Alaska Highway and downtown, yet not noisy. Roads & sites are gravel and level. Trees and bushes give sites some greenery and shade, although sites are a bit narrow for an RV with slides on both sides. Water, sewer & electrical hookups are convenient. Wi-Fi is strong, but the Internet behind it is sometimes spotty (as has been the case throughout the north country). The bathrooms are among the best we've seen, clean and spacious with plenty of hooks and a bench for each shower. Laundry area was clean and convenient. An especially nice touch is the on-site car wash: four dollars was enough to clean the gravel-road muck from the RV and toad. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price is typical for the north country, but at such a nice park, it seemed a bit better value. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean campground with wide pull through spaces. Plenty of room for slides and tow vehicle. Far enough from the highway to be quiet. Close to the downtown area. Would stay here again if in Whitehorse. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice place, but we still were not used to the high prices of the northern lands, so our initial reaction was not great. But they were very friendly, helpful, and got us directed towards needed RV repair (not easy to find). Sites were somewhat better than just adequate. Hookups were good, Wi-Fi worked well. Showers were far away, but nice. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wi-Fi does not work away from office. Laundry over priced at $15 for 3 loads washed and dried. Very limited on cable channels. Showers very nice. Store stocked with souvenirs only. Close to town and overpriced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the cream of the crop for campgrounds in the immediate Whitehorse area. As stated in the previous post -- everything works well, everything is clean, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We will be passing through here again in a couple of months and we will definitely stay here again. They also have a very nice gift shop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a 10 for the Yukon. Sites level and wide carved out in a spruce forest. The showers are the cleanest and brightest that I have ever seen at a CG. The cable WORKS with 60 plus channels. The WiFi WORKS with a very strong signal. Good rules, laundry is immaculate, good store no problems with the power. We will return on our way back home. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount for a 30 amp full-hookup site. This campground is right on the Alaska Highway, so access is easy. However, also going along with that, is the noise from the highway. This highway is much busier here than in rural areas along the Highway. We got off to a bad start at this campground. When we walked into the office for check-in, the lady there completely ignored us until she finished whatever it was she was working on. Her interactions were anything but welcoming. However, I did not consider this interaction in my review rating. You may have a different experience or get a different staff member, but for us, this was a big negative. We ended up with a site very close to the highway and right next to the RV wash station. If you do feel you want to stay here, make for sure you get one away from the wash station. It is noisy and very busy. The hook-ups were good and the electrical power was strong. It has easy access to downtown Whitehorse and surrounding attractions. Our Verizon phone had a good signal. Satellite is not an option because of the trees. Wi-Fi was good and strong at times, and slow or off completely at other times so don’t depend on the internet connection here. It does have very good cable television with lots of choices. If passing through the area again, I would probably try another campground. If staying here again, I would require a site further back away from the highway and the wash station. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great RV park, adequately spaced sites and some of the cleanest/best restrooms/showers you will find out there. The only drawback for us was the dirt/gravel roads which creates some dust when the big rigs come through. We had a black bear visitation on one of our nights here. It happens with some regularity, I guess, and added some excitement of the evening. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We'd recommend this RV park to anyone. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Rate reflects Good Sam Discount. Parked our 34' MH towing, in 30A, FHU back-in site. If you are looking for a Northern RV park with some ambience this will give you what you are looking for. Sites are separated by trees/vegetation with fire rings and picnic tables to the side in most cases. Laundry facilities were excellent. RV/Car wash on site. Convenient to town and attractions. Internet was slow with limited availability (0800-2130 daily), but after seeing advertisements of what individuals have to pay for internet service, I can see why the service we take for granted at home is not available here in the North Country! Wonderful collection of ALCAN highway building equipment along the entrance road. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Plenty of trees. Clean and neat. Gravel sites pretty level. Water good. Electric stable. 65 channels cable TV. A little tight and dusty, but everyone friendly and laid-back. Nice store on-site. Short drive to visitors center; make it a point to go there. Plenty of museums. Restrooms and showers were outstanding. Staff friendly. We plan on staying here upon return from AK. Good Sam discount is shown in rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has many trees providing shade but restricting parking. Our slides were about a foot away from a tree on each side. Still, once you get fitted into a space, it is a very pleasant place to stay. Despite being listed as a 50 Amp. park, they only have 30 Amp. All facilities are very clean. WiFi worked very well but they block gaming and movie steaming sites. The WiFi is only available between the hours of 7:30 AM and 10 PM. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice campground with full hookups and shaded sites. The park is very clean and neat and has nice laundry facility. The park staff is eager to provide information and will also books local activities for you. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
You feel welcomed in this RV Park. The facilities are clean. There are flowers around the buildings. The sites are all shaded. It's easy to start or end your trip here. Wi-Fi is partially censored by the RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from highway; nice treed area; adequate pull throughs although a bit narrow. Some turns could be tight for larger rigs. RV wash on site for $ and another commercial one across the street. Wireless internet available, but service spotty at times. Hotspot available in main building. Nice gift shop on site and easy access to town. CLEAN laundry facilities. Really liked that. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate shown is with Good Sam discount and tax. Site was a fairly level gravel pull-through. Our site number was 73 and due to shared utility posts I was unable to hook up due to the long distance away. I had to turn around and have the connections cross under our rig. Most sites have some trees or rocks between them. Some big rigs may have some difficulty maneuvering some turns. This is a busy campground so it would be best to reserve in July and August. Good cable TV (on one day some channels went blank due to cable company). Wi-Fi was strong due to repeater next to our site. Closest RV park to Whitehorse. Out front near the dog walk are some old WWII trucks and jeeps that are getting closed in by the trees. I would come here again as it is the best of 3 parks we have used in Whitehorse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While very nice I would not rate this as a 10. This park is NOT big rig friendly as there are only 10 spots long enough to be able to leave either the tow vehicle on a 5th wheel or the toad on a MH. Power and water are located way at the rear of the site. Need two hoses to reach. They now have a strong router in the park (at least where we were located). BUT, for much of the day, we had no connection to the Internet because the modem is connected to the same post as one of the sites. Seems someone must have turned it off when they left the site. Why not put tape on that breaker? We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although the spaces are a little tight, the park layout provides easy access to level spaces. the grounds are well maintained with lots of trees and shrubs. The staff is very friendly and informative about local attractions and services. The bathrooms and laundry room are very clean. The laundry room has new high-efficiency machines and several folding tables. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
An attractive park with very nice facilities. Sites are very close; however, most have a small amount of vegetation to separate them. Wi-Fi was poor, but they said they had just installed a new system that was not strong enough. Recommend reservations as we took the last 30 amp. site arriving around 4 pm before the season really got heavy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park about 2 miles from downtown Whitehorse. It is an easy downhill walk to town, but a rough return! Unlike so many RV parks in Canada and Alaska, this place actually is a campground vs. a gravel parking lot. True, in the middle, there are several sites that are side to side in the gravel, but there are plenty of sites, with full hookups, that are nestled into the woods with nice separation between sites. The laundry is spotless, with a large separate area for folding laundry. The gift shop that is part of this park has many locally made products with reasonable prices. The woman at the counter was very helpful and friendly for our entire stay. There is a nice area adjacent to the park where you can take your dog off leash and climb into some hills with lots of trees. We highly recommend this lovely park We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice looking park with trees. However sites are closely packed and roads narrow and difficult to negotiate. Their wi-fi set up is unsecure and the security software would not allow access to gmail or to google.com. You could access google.ca. Very annoying. It is off the road enough for a nice quiet nights sleep. They have room for the dogs to walk. They have an RV wash. We would probably look for another park with easier access (driving and wi-fi!) rather than stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A bit off the highway, tight pull-throughs, many arranged as "buddy sites". Inconvenient hookups at rear of site. Unsecure, slow Wi-Fi. We will try another park on the way back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. Close to Whitehorse. Clean and relatively quiet except for the occasional plane now and then. Sites are adequate. Good cable TV. Wi-Fi was spotty. Not sure if they were having problems or not. I even had problems staying connected while in the office or sitting directly under the antenna. But we will stay here again on our return trip through in about a month. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
In a four month trip to Alaska, this was our favorite RV Park and we stayed again on the return home. There are lots of trees and plantings, RV and car wash, gift shop, walking paths and very nice staff make this a pleasant place. Wash rooms are immaculate and have fresh flowers. Wifi was very good as we requested to be near the antenna. I would give this park a 10 if they put in speed bumps and a folding table in the laundry. The front-loading washers and dryers are excellent. It is convenient to town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wi-Fi was good but only available between 7:30 am to 10 pm. Showers were Luke warm to warm, but not hot. They were clean. Treed campground next to highway. Noise did not bother us from our site. Small kids playground. Laundry available 24 hrs. Basic RV wash available - $1 for 4 minutes either soap or rinse. No bleaching or dying hair in the bathrooms (I'm assuming this was an issue for them). $28 rate - Good Sam, back in, water and 20 amp included. Dump was clean but smelt strongly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good place to refresh, restock,repair. Nice conveniences after several days of driving and staying in campgrounds with fewer amenities. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very nice gift shop with limited, but appreciated grocery/sundry store. Noisy, but it's very close to downtown Whitehorse and the airport so not surprising.There is a bus stop at the entrance for those who need to get into the city. The owners have tried to offer all the modern conveniences. Spaces a little tight. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Actual price with Good Sam discount was $28.35. A very nice campground very near Whitehorse. We opted for a back-in site close to the showers / washrooms which were very clean. Lots of trees, but you’re still close to your neighbor. Our hook-ups were behind our trailer. Pull-through sites, cable TV and sewer are for additional cost. We spent two nights here while touring Whitehorse. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall, Hi Country RV Park in Whitehorse was the nicest park we have stayed in on our entire trip up the Alaska Highway. It had EVERYTHING that a long term traveler needs. One of these was a small gift shop which was fairly and reasonably priced that had very nice gifts and some groceries. The restrooms were spotless and had showers with hot water which were not metered and not coin-operated. There were even paper towels and soap in and another wonder touch of a camper sink within the restrooms. Most important for the long distance traveler, there was reliable Wi-Fi that worked! Many RV parks advertise "free" Wi-Fi, and then you are not able to use the system because of the slowness of the particular system - or because of the over-loading of the system by large numbers of travelers. Park owners MUST recognize that free Wi-Fi is a communication necessity and that it makes the difference between campers' decision to stay in a place that is a private campground, a public campground, or a place alongside the road. Make a reservation to stay in Hi-Country. It fills up by 11 a.m. during tourist season. The staff is wonderful. They offered suggestions of things to do in the touristy-friendly community of Whitehorse. They assisted travelers in making reservations. The place is wonderful! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Very nice park among the trees. We were lucky and got one of their longer pull-thrus, Wi-Fi and cable was good. Would have rated it higher if it had 50 amp. Staff very nice and helpful. Only saw one road that might be a little tight for a big rig in the pull-thru section. Really appreciated this park after some of the other parks we have stayed at so far on the Alaska Highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are a bit tight, but spacious by Alcan standards. All gravel, plenty of trees between sites to give you privacy This campground is convenient to town and to the highway. Nice showers and laundry facility. They have a RV wash station. Good fast wireless internet connection. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great internet speed. We were supposedly put into their "larger" spots for our 40' 5th, yet there are only a few feet til our neighbor's tip outs touch ours, the spots are so crowded, it took us an hour to maneuver out of our spot. We couldn't use our awning because it was too crowded, too many trees. If the park would have been at capacity, I'm not sure we would have been able to get out at all. We had to use empty spots to get out. Overall, the only thing positive I have for this park is the internet, which like I said, was GREAT. They need to widen their spots more, and widen their roads to accommodate the bigger rigs to get in and out a little easier. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We traveled from North Carolina to Alaska, and this was our favorite RV park that we stayed at. The staff was friendly; gift shop was nice. Book swap was very large. We stayed in a spot along the back row, with woods behind us. The site was very shaded, plenty of room, and level. The bathrooms were VERY clean, with blow dryers in the wall, and even fresh flowers in vases on the counter in the ladies' shower. We found the Wi-Fi to be the fastest Wi-fi we had seen on our whole trip. There was firewood available, which we used. We loved it. There was a display of old army equipment along the front of the park. We would definitely stay here again. I can't find our receipt, but we paid around $32 for a family of 5 with 2 dogs - Good Sam Club honored. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The staff was exceptionally helpful and courteous. There were extra touches to be seen everywhere you looked, from freshly cut flowers in the restrooms and shower rooms, to pieces of Yukon history placed around the grounds. The sites were neatly placed within the pine and spruce forested setting so that we didn't feel like we were having breakfast with our neighbors. The showers and internet were provided free of charge. It was very quiet and pleasant. We will be sure to stay here if we are ever in Whitehorse again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Decent sites, though the central utilities means paying attention to the side you pull into. Plus it has excellent WiFi service. The septic station near the center of the park, smelled up the area, including our site. Smelled even when people were not dumping. Worse when they were. We didn't spend any time outside. We will probably return to the park in a few weeks, but will certainly stay away from that area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in a back in spot. Had good hook ups and bush in the back. Some trees between the sites. Gravel, level sites Wi-fi was very poor most of the time even though we were two sites away from the pole. Very attractive check in. Good highway access. Has very clean washrooms. We would stay here again at this site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park that will handle just about any size RV. Some sites are smaller for the pickup campers and others are long pull throughs. The Wi-Fi is quite strong and does not slow down too much in the evenings as the park fills up. It stays quite busy so I would recommend reservations. There are about 7 washers and dryers in the laundry room. My wife says that it is very nice although expensive. The park is gravel so it is a bit dusty as vehicles drive through. They have a concrete pad where you can wash your car or RV although it costs $1 per 5 minutes. The staff is very nice and helpful. The airport is nearby so you get the occasional plane noise. We would definitely come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is for 30 amp FHU site. Roads and sites are gravel. The FHU sites nearest the office are close together and the trucks pulling 5th wheels can make it a tight squeeze on the roads. Other areas of the park had more room. Wi-Fi was excellent, the reason why we opted for the more crowded site. Bathrooms and showers were outstanding. Shared hook-up post for electric and water connections means it may be at the wrong end of your rig. If you pull in "the wrong way" the sewer will be on the wrong side. There's some dust, and a slight amount of traffic noise from the Alaska Hwy, but we are in the Yukon along the Alaska Hwy after all. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Suggest that you check out sites carefully because we found that some of the hookups were on wrong side of the RV. Although there are trees around the sites, we did not experience any mosquitoes. Good Sam park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The pull-through slot was easy to get into. The hook-ups were fairly convenient, but the slot was just too short for our 31-foot travel trailer and pick-up truck. I had to park the truck sideways in front of trailer and snug up as close as I could to the tongue and then be careful not to dent my door when getting out. We didn’t stick out into the street, but the parking was very close, and it made me nervous. I was glad that we were staying only one night. The whole place was just a little crowded: with the slots close together and the roads a tad narrow. Still, there were nice trees between every site. The gift shop was great. The bathrooms were excellent with a security code for privacy. The laundry room was huge for an RV Park; although we didn’t use it, I peeked in. We were able to get an internet connection with our Verizon aircard. I would overnight here again on my way home. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One of the best parks we've seen during a long summer trip. There was minimal road noise from the busy Alaska Highway. The park delivered on everything and even have an effective RV/car wash on site that has a real pressure washer that works. Everything was neat and clean both on the grounds and in laundry and restroom/washroom areas. They have a nice gift shop plus ATM in the office area. Staff was friendly and responsive. We would certainly return. Good Sam discounted price is $29.70 nightly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had stayed here in 1998 and after staying at Pioneer in 2001 felt this park was the best choice so made a reservation requesting an easy in and out site for our 33 foot 5th wheel. We were given site 88 which was not only about 70 feet long there was a lot of room between us and the next RV and very easy to get in and out of. The Wi-Fi worked well from our site and we had no trouble with its speed. There is cable and it provides lots of stations. The park has lots of trees and the interior gravel roads are well maintained. The only problem we had was with the water hookup which leaked because the hose bib was to close to the handle. The laundry was clean but pricey at $3 per wash load and $1.25 for 25 minutes on the dryer. The park was filled each night and for those wanting to stay here a reservation is a good idea. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here on the way up to Alaska and liked it so much that we stayed here on the way back. The laundry was clean and all of the machines worked. The showers were free, clean, and each one had a lockable bar door and a bench. The staff was very friendly! The only reason that I did not give them a 10 is that the wifi only worked near the office and the toilet did not have papers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This has the most appeal in Whitehorse. It has trees and the sites are a good size. The buildings/restrooms/laundry are immaculate. Wi-Fi is available but is sometimes slow and spotty depending where you are parked. You might have to take your computer into the office. There are also modem hookups and a computer to use for a fee. The big downside to this park is the dust. We were parked by the office where everyone leaves and comes in. A "SLOW DOWN" sign or two might help. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the better northern parks that we stayed in. Sites are still tight, but there was some room between them providing a buffer zone. Probably the best park in the area and close to full when we stopped. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the best campgrounds on the Alaska Highway. If your staying in Whitehorse, this is the place. From the nice office and staff to lots of trees all over the campground. There are even old construction trucks from the 1940's here. Everything is great here. Make reservations as this place can sell-out. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground. Sites are adequate size, but not oversized. Wifi only reaches a few sites, but is available at office/laundries. Owner is hoping to upgrade it this summer to make it more stable and reach a few more sites. We were happy with it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 3 days in July and 3 days in late August both on our way to and back from Alaska. The grounds were always nice and clean and sites were large enough for our long 5th wheel. The staff were friendly enough but not overly so. It is in a great location for town and all you need to get to. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were in a caravan with 26 other big rigs - all fit in. Nice people. Clean facilities. Good laundry. Free wireless. The location is easy to get to town & other attractions. The sites were tight for big rigs - a few branches had to be trimmed. They have a place to wash rigs and cars. Good gift shop, nice TV / internet lounge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
About 25 miles east of Whitehorse along Alaska hwy. at km 1,379. Some site along lake front, but about 100 yards from the water. Much shade, sites well spaced. Very helpful staff. Free firewood. Good gravel roads and sites, very level. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Owner/manager not on site often. You have to call him to come to the park. We stayed there two nights and showers/toilets were not cleaned during that time. Two women were cleaning motel rooms, but declined to get toilet paper, towels, soap for the washrooms. Wi-Fi did not work over half of the time we were there. Manager said he had tech working on problem, but we did not see anyone, and system did not work any better. We would pass on this park next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Positives: Five minutes from downtown Whitehorse. Ten minutes from Walmart. Gravel leveled site. Wifi that we could use at our site! Friendly staff. Easy to access from Rt.1. Negatives: Hookups at rear. Our first site they offered would have required us to run sewer, electric and water under the RV. Road noise as you are right off of Alaskan Highway. A/C would drown it out but power kept fluctuating and our power monitor would shut off the a/c. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped at this park as we were traveling through Whitehorse. It was early in the season, and our favorite place was still closed. We got the last space in this small RV park, and it seemed to be the last one in Whitehorse. The bathrooms were EXTREMELY CLEAN and pleasant (like being in a house's bathroom), though small. There are two bathroom/shower combos for the park. I wouldn't really call it a park, as it really just looked like hook-ups were added in the hotel parking lot as an after thought. The internet worked well. The water was still turned off, so all we had was electric. It would have been nice to know there was no water when we checked in, as that wasn't mentioned. In all, if you are driving through and need electric and clean bathrooms/showers/laundry - then it is a good option. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was not a place we would stay very long. It was an expensive parking lot with hookups. That said, the Wi-Fi connection was the best I've seen anywhere and the private showers were nice. The staff also seem very green-friendly: they recycle everything. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pretty nice overall. The desk help was outstanding. We arrived there in fairly cold temperatures and our rig was winterized so we were totally dependent on the restrooms and showers which were both very adequate and surprisingly warm. Given that most northern parks were closed to campers and over nighters (we spent the night behind a 24 hour Chevron in Tok, Alaska the night before) it's being open to the last stragglers out of the arctic is a very big plus in their favor. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV park has 12 spaces which are all gravel. The sites are wide enough for slides. The sewer hookup was on the wrong side for our Class A, but reachable with a longer hose. Everything, including Wi-Fi, worked well. The park is very neat and clean, and there are recycle bins for most everything, including cardboard. Staff was friendly and helpful. The park is located just a few minutes from downtown Whitehorse. It is a nice, no frills, campground and we would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A small RV Park adjacent to the motel. On-site recycling bins, excellent Wi-Fi, cable TV, clean, and convenient to downtown Whitehorse. The owner is friendly and helpful, and the property is well managed. The water comes from a well so it contains some minerals that will stain your white clothes in the laundry if you don't use a water softener. The warning signs are well posted over the washing machines. Hookups for adjacent sites are on the same pedestal so one RV will need to drive into the site, or use an extension if they decide to back in. We stayed here in July and again on our return journey in September. The owner recognized us and welcomed us back. We stayed here in a 40' motorcoach and didn't have any issues. Parking may be challenging if you have a large RV and the park is full. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We drive a 45' motorcoach and this is one of the few facilities in Whitehorse that can hold us. No dust in this campground (a major plus in the Yukon). Excellent Wi-Fi, water, sewer, cable for $30. Small campground, and a bit tight, but very doable. If you have a big rig stay here. Same people who own the Klondike Rib and Salmon BBQ restaurant in downtown Whitehorse own this facility. Restaurant is a home run. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The worst park I have ever been to. We called in, said we had a 45' and the owner said we would fit no problem. We showed up, struggled to fit into one of their two available sites, asked her if we could move to the site by the motel, she refused saying it was not available for rent for motorhomes, and refunded our money. I think the reviewer who gave it 10/10 must be the owner or a friend of the owner because this place is terrible. You cannot park a motorhome by the motel. These pull-through sites will not work unless you are less than 30' long, (because you must pull in from the back of all the other coaches with minimal clearance). The site she tried to put us into, you must pull in (and back out). For this reason she should not have taken the reservation. We have never had difficulty getting into a spot (even though we are a 45' coach), because of two reasons. (a) I have lots of experience, (b) I have never had a park lie to me about their accommodations. If it was an employee lying to me, that would be one thing. But it was the owner. You just have to AVOID this place at all costs. There are much better choices. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owner is very nice and the campground is very clean. However, there is quite a bit of road noise from the Alaska Highway. Sites are very tight so you need to watch your slides, and no awnings are possible. WiFi was down more than up. The water is on a well system and has a very bad odor and taste. We camped here in a Motorhome.
By far the best park in Whitehorse. Small so best to call for reservations. You are still jammed in side by side but with only 11 others - not 150. WiFi is fabulous - not so at the other parks in Whitehorse. Leanne, the owner, is by far the most helpful and nicest person at a campground that we have encountered on this trip. She is a new owner and is making major changes to the park. Try to get the spot next to the motel - the view is awesome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A Good Sam Park, it is has been around for awhile. It is large with flat spots and big rig friendly. Not shaded. It has full hook-ups with 30 amp power that works. There is a store, wash rack, mechanic, fuel pumps (gas and diesel), laundry, showers and washrooms. The staff is friendly. We stayed 3 nights as part of a caravan. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical gravel parking lot but room to move around. Level. Good Sam Discount. Cable TV. Free Wi-Fi but didn't work for us. Good for overnight or maybe 2 if you want to check out Whitehorse. We have stayed before and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Good Sam park. We stayed here in both June and August. We elected to stay in their dry camping section for a very reduced price. It is located up the hill by the water fill and dump station where they store RVs and some old buses. It was very quiet and definitely not crowded. We had lots of space to set up and we were able to use our rooftop satellite. We did not use the bathhouse or laundry and the wifi is not free so we also did not use that. There is a Wal-Mart in Whitehorse but it is not a super store and sells a limited selection of groceries. The parking lot is a zoo because many RVers stay there. All in all, it was not a bad experience and we would stay there again. At least we were not jammed up next to other RVs like those in the hook up section. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is okay as a pass through. Definitely not a destination. Rigs crowded in side by side. Hardly enough room to turn around. Nothing more than a parking lot with hook ups. Laundry suitable - 2.50 a wash, 2.00 to get dry enough. If we ever came back to this area, would look for another park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Power was very sporadic. Got below 104 volts on two occasions and over 138 on another. Good thing I had a surge protector. Sites are very crowded and narrow. Wi-Fi was free, but limited to 300 MB per day. 3-cent discount on all fuel at their pumps. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice owners/operators, helpful with local knowledge. Easy in/out pull-through sites. WiFi worked well limited to 300 mb per day per RV. Coin operated RV/car wash worked well. Convenient to Whitehorse and surrounding area. Diesel fuel price was as good or better than anyone else in the area. They offer .03 discount per gallon of gas or diesel. If you're headed north on the Alaska Hwy you'd do well to fill up here. We'd definitely return passing through this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with fuel pumps that they give you a discount on. Propane also available. Some sites are on a gravel parking lot type area but we stayed up on the treed area up a hill at the back of the park. We would stay here again. Staff was helpful. Price reflects a Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy pull through sites accommodate towed without unhooking. $.03 per liter fuel price reduction. RV power wash area (1 loonie for 3 minutes) and oil change area. Convenient hookup locations. Stable 120 VAC power and good water. Didn't use cable TV so don't know about that. Office staff very friendly and helpful. They will book tours for you and arrange for tour bus to pick you up at the park. Level gravel spots that do not get muddy when it rains. Wi-Fi very good in #61, where we parked. You are limited to 250mb of data per 24 hours but if you ask and they are not full they will give you more. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this park because our first choice was full. This turned out to be a pretty nice place - as long as you don't stay in one of the "parking lot" sites near the office. The upper sites don't have sewer, but they do have water, electric and cable TV. They're nice treed sites that are much prettier than the more expensive pull-thrus. We have a 40-ft RV and had no problems pulling in to our site. Wi-Fi works well (although they limit your use to 250 mb per day, so don't try to download or upload pix, etc.) Still, a nice place and better than many on the Alaska Highway. For $30 (with Good Sam discount) it's a deal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical gravel parking lot we have seen through BC and the Yukon. Hook ups worked OK. Wi-Fi was a bit weak. CG is right on the road but separated by a row of trees. Noise isn't too bad. Didn't check out the no hook up sites on the hill. Vehicle wash was a $1 for 3 minutes wash time. That is about the usual rate we have seen. 3 cent/Liter discount on fuel at the park for staying in the park. Easy in/out. Would use it again. This worked out OK. Whitehorse is kind of a neat little town. Worth a full day if you are into history. Visitor Center is very nice. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We booked this campground on the pictures of the sites and all of the features it boasted. The pictures are of the sites with no services up on the hill. All of the serviced sites are in a huge parking lot on the bottom of the hill. Units are parked tightly together. It was horrible. Our reservations were for 4 units, and everyone was scattered. They catered to the caravans. Reservations for Skagway tour were not made...make them yourselves. They said they would dog sit my dog while I did the tour, but that only means to leave your dog in the camper, and they will come let it out, IF they get the chance. When promised services were not honored; they just said "stay somewhere else". Would never recommend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great overnighter for our 43' four slides and tow. Tight with your neighbors but level, electric works all the time, water and sewer, Wi-Fi is 250 mb free and works fine, nice gravel sites and little dust. Not private, but no scratches from overhanging trees or shrubs and easy in and out. A little noise from the road but we slept fine. Friendly staff and reasonably close to town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a hole cut out of the earth where they pack in as many RV's as possible. The electric is very poor. The park was full & we were at the end of the line. We lost power completely the second night we were there. The morning of the 3rd day the power fluctuated so badly that it kept tripping our Progressive surge protector. We had to disconnect from the power to keep from frying our electronics. The good things about the park are it is close to town. The laundry room is very clean & very large. It has a very good RV/car wash that was in great demand while we were there. It also has fuel at a discount for park guests. We were also able to get a satellite signal. We did not stay here on our way back home because of the power issues but I would probably stay here when the park was not so full. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Whoa, really narrow sites for rigs with slideouts. We had to share our stairs with our neighbor, that's how close we were. Not much else to say about the place, basically a parking lot. I would probably look for another park if I was in the Whitehorse area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
For the most part, this is just a huge parking lot. Many caravans stop here. It is all gravel; although, they do have some treed sites on an upper level. I think they only have water & electric or less up there. However, it is much quieter. The lower part is a block from the highway by a row of trees. My biggest complaint would be their electrical service. It was hot the first full day we were here & many were running their AC's. They only have 30 amp service, which is normally fine, but the service at the post kept dropping causing us to lose power. This also happened one night when trying to run the heat pump. They do have an RV wash and decent laundry facilities. They give you free Wi-Fi, but it is a limited amount. It was fine for our use, which was email, checking the stock market & reading some news. It's about 4 miles from downtown, but no problem to get there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The front office staff were helpful and friendly. Utilities are in the correct place for hookup and worked fine. The whole park is gravel which can be pretty dusty. Our site was rather uneven and required a couple of pads under the jacks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second stay at this park and again we were pleased with the stay. Yes it is a gravel parking lot but the services are good. The internet is FANTASTIC!! It has lightning fast speed, without a doubt the fastest I have ever used anywhere! Wish all parks were half as good. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This isn't a great park, but it's not bad. It's true that the sites on the lower level are very tightly spaced. It's also where all the caravans line up that frequent the park. The park sells gas and diesel and if you stay in the park you get a .03 cent discount per liter. The RV wash pad worked well and costs one dollar per 3 minutes of wand time. There is also a separate room next to the car wash pad that is for bathing pets. The campsites up the hill on the upper level are more treed and separated, but due to the trees also have a lot more mosquitoes. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park with two different types of sites. The lower sites are like many other CG in this region in that it's a huge gravel lot with sites. The other sites up the hill are wooded and well spaced. We stayed in the lower sites. We have a 45-foot MH and will not fit anywhere else. The lower sites are side-by-site and very tight. Although doable, it's a bit tough getting a 45-footer in/out when the park is packed. Friendly staff, great self serve RV wash. Internet is the best we've had in Canada. They limit you to 150mb or Internet access. This may be their secret to internet success. Showers are pay, like much of Canada. They also sell tickets to many attractions and run buses for some day tours. I'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped at this campground because of the description in the Alaska Camping guide book. The back-in sites on the hill above the park office are great and not too close. Motorhomes over 35 feet may not be able to fit in the tree sites in the upper level.
However, the pull-through sites on the lower level are as packed and tight as they can be made possible. I doubt some can even open their doors all the way. The showers are pay shower but they give you two tokens for two free showers if you stay here. They said the Wi-Fi would not work on the upper level, but since I am typing this from there I guess they weren't correct. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We boon dock pretty much through the week but every once in a while we pull into a full service RV parking when traveling the Alaska Highway. The pull throughs are tight but once you are in there is no problem. All the power, cable, and internet worked great. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. We parked in the treed hill area, nice spacious and a bit private. The pull throughs are VERY close together, okay for an overnight but no wow factor. Staff very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is another Yukon parking lot. However, it is truly a full-service park. The electricity is good, the Wi-Fi is strong, the cable TV is fair. They offer gas and diesel, propane, oil change area, vehicle power wash, and a store with lots of RV parts. They sell tickets to the train out of Skagway and other activities. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pioneer RV Park is a great little park just north of Whitehorse. Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed here for 4 nights to visit the town before heading up to Alaska. I would recommend this park to everyone. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An excellent choice for the Whitehorse area. Many choices of sites available from secluded forested sites (which are large enough for big rigs) to open parking lot gravel sites to boondocking. We chose the gravel parking lot due to the open view of the sky and full hookups (wooded sites have only W-E). Full HU means free wifi and cable. Wifi was exceptionally stable and fast (6 mps) with over 80 channels (some digital) on the cable. Most of the gravel lot sites should have satellite views (note that a larger than normal dish is necessary at this northern latitude). The lot has plenty of maneuvering space but toads will need to be disconnected once parked. Other services include tour desk, power wash for cars/RVs (you'll need it), pet wash and gas/propane at a discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park has 2 different campgrounds. The lower unit, is a gravel parking lot with the sites side by side. It does have a RV wash site and fuel on site. Very friendly people. The upper unit (we did not use but walked thru) would be a great place to camp. Large, private back in campground sites. There were only a few pull thru sites and they were not real long, (36 footer or shorter). You would have to unhook a tow car and park along side, the same is true with the back in sites. Very nice park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Still learning what to expect north of the lower 48. Gravel parking lot w/hook-ups, not level, no grass, laundry room not open yet, Wi-Fi unsecured, glad our satellite system worked. This park is on Hwy 1 ... noisy during the day. A few planes flying over in the am from nearby airport. Didn't hear anything last night, though. We were so tired that we crashed. Treed and open sites available, which is nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The shaded sites were quite small, so we are in the larger pull-throughs. The sites are level with good gravel. There is not enough length to stay hooked up, but not an issue as we are going to stay longer than one day. The rest rooms are not open yet. The hook ups are located just fine. The Wi-Fi at the site is very good. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff is very friendly and personable. They had lots of TV Cable channels and Wi-Fi with excellent reception. The pull-throughs are very long and there is plenty of space on each side. The staff even recommended a local Chinese Restaurant that we were happy with. They will service your RV here,and have excellent laundry facilities, car wash, pet wash, and even gas & propane. We liked this park enough to extend our stay to 4 days. I would highly recommend this park to everyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Typical RV parking lot; however, we found the site to be sufficient width and length for our 38' motorhome and tow vehicle. The Wi-Fi worked very well the whole three days we were here. No problems with the power either. Some road noise from the Alaska Highway. Also the park is in the flight path for the airport, but only a problem during the day. We were in the lower level. The on-site gas was very convenient. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lots of pluses: on-site gas/diesel pumps, propane, oil change. All reasonably priced. Staff was terrific! Just minutes south of center of Whitehorse, major shopping and visitor attractions. Downside: tight sites with little ambiance. Wi-Fi intermittent. Treed sites in rear. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We're on our way to Alaska. This is the worst park so far. We camp in a 40 foot motorhome. We are in the bottom (parking lot) row of this campground (which by the way is very tight if you have a big rig). Everyone in this lot seems to be having trouble with their electric hook ups; we're supposed to have 30 amp and most of us have 15 amp service. It's a little nippy here now and it would be nice to run the heater and not wake up to a dead battery. If 15 amp is all you have to offer that's fine, but don't charge me for 30 amp and then tell me that whatever I get is what the Yukon allows! The capital of the Yukon (Whitehorse) should be ashamed of this campground. If you're heading to Whitehorse roll on down the road further than Pioneer Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. We stayed in the Upper Level in a huge pull-through site. Lots of trees, large gravel sites, plenty of room between sites. With the fuel discount (3 cents per liter), they had the cheapest diesel we saw in the area. Friendly, helpful staff. No sewer hookups in the upper level, but two nice dump stations. Good, reasonably priced (for the area) vehicle wash pad. We couldn't get a Wi-Fi signal from our campsite, but they have a large public building behind the office where the signal is fair. Large number of pull throughs are in a flat area along the highway. Good and level with large sites, but no shade and some highway noise. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
RVs are parked from both directions. If full, you'd have to coordinate with your neighbor to see which one of you gets to put out your slides. Got a 3 cent per liter discount on fuel - which did little to dent the exorbitant fuel price. Nice staff. Rates higher than advertised. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The lower section of this park is very utilitarian with easy access to level gravel sites, good utilities and reliable internet. The side by side hookups in this lower section are very near the highway so there was some road noise. Wi-Fi was sometimes slow but consistently available. The upper section of the park is much more attractive with generous sites well screened by trees but without full hookups. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rate was for 30 amps, full hookups and includes a Good Sam discount. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We headed north way too early this year and have found that due to the cold weather, very few campgrounds were open yet. This one allowed us to camp here with 30amp electric and dump at site but water not yet turned on. They did allow us to fill our water tank at a site within the park before setting up. They offer fuel at a discount of $.03 off per litre. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is daily rate for full hookup 30 amp pull-through site. We were in the lower section, which essentially a large open gravel area, but it was late in the season and only four other RVs were down there. It is easy to see how it could be very crowded if it was busy with caravans, making the upper area more desirable. Wi-Fi worked well. We stayed at three parks in Whitehorse during our trip to and from Alaska, and this was the best of the three. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rating and nightly rate above reflects the Treed Site area. The first time we stayed here we disliked it because we stayed in the lower, "parking lot" area that has full hookups. It was dusty with no picnic tables or fire rings. But then we came back through and stayed on the upper ridge or Treed Site area instead, and this was very nice. These site have power and water hookups with a dump station nearby. We saw large 5th wheel trailers up there, along with several coaches up to 36 feet long. This treed area is very nice. Pioneer RV Park is the only RV park we've ever been to that actually has a Dog Wash! That is actually why we went back. And we would stay there again, but not in the parking lot area! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on our way up north in June and again on our way down south in Aug. Both times we chose the lower parking area due to the trees in the upper area. The road in to the upper area had some over growth of trees in one spot and we didn't want to take a chance in scratching our rig. Other than that one area just as you head in, the rest of the loop was clear and could accommodate a larger RV. We did not notice any road noise at night either time we have stayed here. The Wi-Fi is OK, not the fastest but definitely better than nothing. The owners are very nice and can arranged a wide variety of tours and excursions if that is what you like to do. We would definitely recommend this park as a overnighter or two. The RV/Car wash was $1 Loonie (Canadian Dollar) for 3 minutes of a high pressure/warm water wash. It sure felt good to have a clean rig again after 2 months! We camped here in a Motorhome.
A good overnight stop from which to tour Whitehorse. We stayed here going to, and coming from, Alaska. Very friendly staff, and they give a 3¢/liter discount on gas. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the upper part of the park without sewer, because the lower part is too crowded and near the road. Nice sites up here, mostly back in's. Some of the hookups were on wrong side of the RV, but with no sewer, this doesn't really matter. Free Wi-Fi was OK during the day, but slow in the evening. Owner very nice. Great free showers. They sell the cheapest diesel I could find in Whitehorse. Even a mechanic available to change your oil, or you can use the pad to change your own for $5. RV wash for $1 for 3 minutes (I think). Coin operated dog wash too, with commercial tub. We will come back on our return from AK. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped in the Upper campground area in a drive through site. It was nicely shaded and quiet except for the airport noise, but only during the day. All Rv parks near Whitehorse have this problem. WiFi is weak up on the hill, but good closer to the store. We enjoyed our stay here and in Whitehorse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yes, sites are very close but not as bad as other reviews state. We are in a 40' motor home with 2 slides on driver's side alongside another 40' motor home with slides facing ours. Still room to walk between (site #29). Could not open awing on other side. Management friendly and helpful. Mechanic on site. Coin car wash - $3CA for 9 minutes. Wi-Fi works but very slow - free. Good price for diesel fuel on site - $.94CA liter less 3 cent discount. Very quiet even though along Alaska Hwy. About 6 miles from Whitehorse City Center on good roads. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We checked in for 3 days in the middle of a downpour. Good Sam discount. Pull thrus are very tight. Essentially a large gravel parking lot with rigs crammed in almost on top of each other. Forget about awnings. Wifi does work either. We won't be staying here on our return trip south. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All-gravel park close to the Alaska Highway just south of Whitehorse. Sites are all set up at 90 degrees to the access roads and difficult to access for big rigs if others' tow vehicles are parked in the way. Seriously low voltage brought out the attitude of the office staff ("our electrician says 103 volts is normal; you can feel free to leave if you don't like it"). Would have rated "1", but on-site fuel (propane, gas and diesel) and a coin-operated car/RV wash are convenient. We camped here in a Motorhome.
SARDINE, can you say SARDINE. We came in a caravan, we had a 5th next to a class A and there was less than 6 inches between the bottom steps. Can you say SARDINE. Wi-fi was clueless while we were here. Very dusty place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very tight spaces. WiFi is a joke. We stayed here twice. The first time the WiFi was slow but staff said they were working on it. Two months later it was the same story. WiFi slower than dial-up. Nice RV wash and good discount on gas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are two very different sections in this park. My heart sank when we approached this campground and from the road could only see the lower section. The lower area is ridiculously tight and jam packed with RV's in side-by-side hook-ups. The area is dirt with a few trees near the road and we were told that the Wi-Fi will reach these sites. The upper area is treed with nice, some roomy back-in sites that have water, electric and cable but no sewer or Wi-Fi. We had site #118 on the upper level. It was level, deep and shaded with good cable stations and decent spacing from neighbors. There is a room near the laundry that you can use to access Wi-Fi. Gas was reasonably priced with the discount for campers and the park has an RV wash and a place for oil changes. We'd stay again in the upper area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our full hookup site was a little tight with bigger rigs on either side of us. WIFI worked only part of the time as too many computers on at one time. Cable TV reception was spotty first night and lost the second forcing me to share neighbours cable source. RV park has 3 cent per litre discount at their gas pumps for registered guests. Laundramat has old machines not all working. Friendly knowledgable office staff. Overall good value, but I would have spent a few bucks more for better TV and WIFI. Rate shown for 15 amp power. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on our way up in May, and now again on our way home. Even in the lower section, the road noise wasn't that bad. Guests of the campground get a 3 cent per liter discount on fuel. Will stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This time we stayed in their free dry camping area. (I put "$1" in the Nightly Rate box because this web page would not accept "$0".) It's on the bluff above the park. It is an open area with great views, much less highway noise than down below, and clear shots for our 32" Dish Network antenna and our traveling companion's DirecWay Internet dish. They even let you use the dump station and fresh water fill for free. We had to spend a week here, due to my friend's RV breakdown. We offered to pay to camp here because this dry camping area is intended for overnighters. They refused to take our money. What great people! We have stayed in the full hookup section of the park on previous visits and would recommend it or the treed water/electric sites further up the hill. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good cable TV and wifi works well. Next to the Alaskan Highway, but quiet at night. Big rigs can get in and out with ease. Fuel is available with a discount. Good rig wash. Pleasant people in the office. There are several caravans that stay here so reservations are a good idea. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has two extremely different sections. Down below in a crowded gravel lot, along the side of the road, there are full hook-up sites. Above, in the trees, are water / electric sites in a beautiful setting. The park has some nice features. Their RV wash is on a cement slab, unlike all the others I’ve seen on dirt (mud) and the water is hot. They have a pet wash room where you can give Fido a bath. Their WiFi is free and works pretty well. They can do an oil change for you or you can do it yourself for free if you buy the parts from them or you can do it yourself with your parts for $5; all on a nice cement slab, no laying in the dirt. They sell gas with a discount for campers at a very competitive price. The park is 2 miles from town. We'll definitely stop here on the way back to the lower 48. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very very nice park. It is set in the woods, very long and wide slots. Roads are adequate but watch for trees (or look at the scars from those who did not). Single water station at front of park and dump station off the Hot Springs road. Wish they had full hookups so we could stay longer without having to pull out and dump/fill. Whitehorse is about 20 minutes away and they are a mile away from the wildlife preserve. Hot Springs is a single concrete pool, lots of locals tend to visit in the late afternoon and evenings but still nice. Locker rooms are clean, but shower requires a lot of arm strength! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park seems to be under construction. Entry road very rough. When we arrived we found out this is not a "full service" RV park. Having boon docked for a week, this was a real disappointment because the spaces appeared nicely treed and shady. Showers would cost "only" $3/day each person and had to walk to the hot springs which wasn't an open for us as it would be a hike. Therefore, definitely not a senior friendly park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose a dry-camp site; electric sites cost $15 - $20 more. Paved road to the park, but narrow dirt road to sites. (Be sure to emphasize how large your rig is and how much room you need to maneuver when making reservations, and again upon check-in.) Sites are in the trees, so there's lots of shade. Hot springs pool is great! Campers get a discount on the pool fee. Quiet location. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
