We have been traveling Alaska for the better part of a month and Ship Creek is by far the worst campground we've stayed at. We were assigned a gravel site with small patches of unmaintained grass close to the grounds entrance with virtually no room to sit outside and relax. The park is located in an unattractive small industrial area adjacent to railroad tracks and a road crossing. The required blast of the train horn when approaching the road crossing got a bit old. At the other end of the campground is an area of homeless campsites and an RV rental repair and maintenance facility. For us, this further detracted from what we hoped would be a pleasant stay. The only positive worth mentioning is that campground is in close proximity to downtown; a 10 minute walk away. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

The level back-in gravel sites are very tight for a big rig. We were lucky not to have someone on both side with slides but we talked to others that said this park had larger sites than the other with FHUs. The utilities worked well and the Wi-Fi was good most of the time. We were able to pickup a couple of over the air TV channels but they would drop out every time a plane would fly by which was a lot during the day. There are railroad tracks within a few feet of the park and their horn will make you jump when they go by but we didn't hear any at night. The park was easy to get to and easy to get around in. We would stay here again if we were in this area and needed FHU. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you like hiking there are a few nearby, we hiked the Wolverine trail and found the view at the peak breathtaking. The Ship Creek and Coastal trails are easy and very scenic. Checkout the craft show on the weekends.

Have stayed here on two different occasions over the past month. The park is a great location, no question about that. However, the visits were almost polar opposites due primarily to the side of the park where we stayed. During the first stay, we were in one of the few pull-thru's located in the back of the park. Wifi worked reasonably well, we could hear the trains go by but it wasn't too disturbing. We were close to neighboring RV's as fairly typical in Alaska so it was acceptable. On the second stay, we were placed in a back-in at the front of the park right by the entrance. Wifi was nonexistent and the spaces were probably the tightest we've stayed, even by Alaska standards. The worst part is that the trains blow their horns while going through the intersection that is located right by the park entrance. The horns will make you sit up and hold your ears. I will stay here again primarily because of the location but I will ensure that I have a guaranteed spot in the back of the park or I'll consider staying somewhere else. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Probably the best campground in Anchorage, but one of the worst in North America. Unlevel gravel sites. Constant noise from trains with train tracks right next to RV Park, Airplane noise due to direct approach to downtown airport is over the campground, truck noise from the shipyard less than 1 block away, and the ever present sea gulls that begin their morning squawk at 3AM. Anchorage homeless situation out of control and homeless shelter in close proximity to campground. No place to walk dogs. Sites are ridiculously tight, unable to use awning without it touching the rig next to us. Many sites without picnic tables. Staff is selective in enforcing rules. i.e. Some folks allowed to change oil on site, others were not. Staff not very polite or friendly. Bathrooms were not kept tidy and clean - garbage cans overflowing. Laundry facilities were acceptable. We stayed here one week while in the area. WiFi not reliable. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We can't expect much of the park located at downtown Anchorage. So most important thing is all hookup run well and clean shower and toilet. The bathroom are lock with pass code and have male and female bathroom. The site are really tight. This park is located next to train station. The train run not too frequently but it is really loud. The office provide free hot coffee and tea. Location are 10 minutes from downtown. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice folks running this park. Very courteous. The previous reviews are accurate. Wi-Fi worked in the park for 2 of the 6 days we were there then quit. Its was available only sitting at the front door of the office. Mentioned it to management but they said its the way it is. Noise from the RR and nearby airport are issues here. Homeless people moved through the park one evening trying to sell used coolers. Probably the best thing going in Anchorage for camping though. Convenient to many Anchorage attractions. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Truck Camper.

This park is plain and rather expensive. However, it is in downtown Anchorage. The location is convenient. We could walk or ride a bike to Ship Creek, the Alaska RR station, the Saturday Market-Festival, and the Alaska Experience Theater. That same convenient location does make it noisy with the train and the sea gulls. The sites are very close together and there is not a picnic table at every one. The showers are clean for the use they get. However, the managers seem to clean them when they wish. No time is posted and on 2 days they were trying to clean while 6 men were shaving, showering or using the toilet at 9am. The park is fenced for security and ringed with trees for privacy and shade. On the hot afternoons, our RV was still comfortable, but not sure how the ones in the middle of the park felt with no shade. The laundry is the standard $2 a machine and normally busy. The office staff is helpful and there is a lot of tourist information available. This is the place to stay to see Anchorage,but do not expect an RV resort.

Stayed both here and at the Golden Nugget (GN). The park has older infrastructure and is located on Alaska RR land, so not much incentive to improve. Compared to GN the roads are much wider and the site slots are angled so easy to get into, but they are narrower. Setting is nicer than GN, but neighborhood is industrial and lots of homeless running around (though the park will call the RR police if one enters). Easy walk to downtown. At least one freight train a night goes by and tracks are right behind the park. For class Cs a good park, for anyone with large units and slides it is just like GN not much room to move around. But in Anchorage you really only have two choices and this could be the lesser of 2 evils. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Narrow sites but very wide access roads and had a spacious feel despite the narrow sites. Nice trees around the perimeter. Internet worked well. Laundry was good. Nicest RV park in Anchorage and close to town and weekend markets. We have a 42 foot motor home and have been traveling for 11 years. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount. Yes, this is a parking lot with very tight spaces. We were given two choices of sites. The first we could not get into because the neighbor had his awning out and the second had a car parked in it. We chose a third site without anyone on either side. However, folks did come in and stay on one side during our stay there. It has some of the closest sites that we have stayed in during our eight years of full-time RVing. It is convenient to downtown Anchorage. We walked to town one day, but elected to drive after that because of the various homeless folks that we encountered during our walk. It is in a very industrial area but is quiet at night. The trains do go by very close but it is mainly during the day and we love trains, so not a problem. Our Verizon phone and data worked very well there. The park WiFi was off and on, sometimes great, at other times nothing. The campground hosts were very nice and helpful. Anchorage has some amazingly great bike paths and some are accessible directly from the park. We did check out the other RV parks in the city and chose this one over the others, so if we were staying in the city again would likely stay here. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park although it is an industrial feeling area of town. The people were nice and friendly and we noticed security people driving through the park a few times which made us feel more comfortable. The sites were easy to pull into, but did take some leveling of our unit. There is a train track just on the other side of a fence which made our fifth wheel shake a little but only noticed them during daytime hours. We would stay here again.

We have been to Alaska numerous times. This is the place to stay in Anchorage, in our opinion. It's as nice a park as you will fined in Anchorage. It's within walking distance of the Saturday market and the downtown museum. The big attraction for us is that during much of the summer (when we have been here) the salmon are running in Ship Creek and we enjoy watching the locals fishing in the evenings. There's a nice place for walking in the evening. The train tracks are adjacent to the park, but the last train arrives around 8 in the evening and there's no traffic on the rail after that. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is next to a railroad track in an industrial-feeling part of town. It is a gravel strip with sites that are narrow and short. Electricity worked fine, but our site didn't have water or sewer. WiFi worked well. Bathroom and shower were dingy and didn't feel very clean, and shower was quite cramped. At $36, it seemed expensive for what we got. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here for two nights on a two month Alaska tour. This park is the best of a very sorry collection of RV parks in the Anchorage area. Sites are very tight with almost no room to extend slide outs. Park is in a very run down section which just adds to its already worn feel. My wife and I elected to walk into town and on the way back walked through a homeless campsite right above the park on the hill. Quite a treat. We camped at Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
