This is a free camping area on the banks of Knik River. Drive the Old Glenn Highway out of Palmer. The access to the public use area is on the right just before crossing the bridge over the river. It's all gravel and a little rough to drive in but there is plenty of room to park so don't be afraid to bring your big rig. Some shady spots are taken by seasonals but again, there is so much room to find a spot somewhere on the river banks. No amenities whatsoever, you need to be fully self contained. It's a mixture of beach feeling and gorgeous views of the mountains across the river. Some noise from the highway and ATVs that locals like to drive around. It was quiet at night though. We will come back but avoid the weekends. - TheSchweitzers

Nice Campsite out of the city, with an easy drive to Anchorage, Great Golf course a few minutes away. Level sites, no trees. Good service at the front desk. - dennis 88

Great park with large pull thru sites. Owner very helpful and the view is to die for. Services worked well with 30 amp electric. Interior roads are gravel and are two lanes wide making for easy access to sites. Large fire pit in front of park with a covered shelter containing tables. Owner sells propane but told us it was cheaper at Fred Meyers. - roaming around

This park is one of the nicest we've found in Alaska. Pull thru sites are level grass with full hook ups (30A) and about 60-65' long. Your neighbor is still too close with 12 feet between RVs. Most of the gravel interior roads are double wide making for easy back ins around the edge and easy in/out for pull thrus. We picked up major network TV channels over the air which is good since there is no cable and satellite won't work here. Laundry was big enough with $2 washers & $1.25 dryers. It took 2 cycles to fully dry clothes though. They sell propane but Fred Meyer sells it cheaper. Verizon had a good 3 bar voice plus LTE data signal. Park wifi was very slow during normal usage hours. - Danno

This RV park is permanently closed due to road construction going thru it. - tcreek

This is an adequate campground located just outside Palmer near the fairgrounds. The entrance is a bit of a mess with big rocks and pot holes. We had a 50 amp pull thru with FHUs. Site was narrow and close to neighbors. Some long term residents were there but sites were not messy. Verizon cell and mifi worked well. We did not use the laundry or bathhouse so cannot comment on price or condition. Manager was friendly but not on site parts of the day. Anchorage is an easy drive and Palmer provides an alternative to the over priced, cramped campgrounds in Anchorage. We would stay here again. - roadking

This is a small park about 45 miles from Anchorage. Sites are long enough we could park our tow behind. Site was level, WiFi good and water pressure was good. We would stay here again. - Grammy8

This is our favorite park in the Palmer/Wasilla area. In fact this one and the highly rated RV park in Haines are our two favorites in Alaska. - Norske

We stayed in the upper campground for larger vehicles. Very nice grass sites. Power only. Water and dump stations included in the fee, as well as showers, if you wished.
Very nice manager. Comfort station is older, but spotless. Grounds are beautiful. It's a county park, not state.
Further down the hill are smaller sites restricted to 30 ft and under. No services, but $15. Still get to use the fresh water, dump, and shower for $15, which is a bargain in this area.
We enjoyed our stay. - Sherr

This park continues to be excellent for what it provides. Lacking sewer and water knocks it down two notches. Otherwise it is a 10 for NICE manicured grassy spots. Beautiful landscaping. Pick your own Rhubarb, Raspberries, etc. Nice new tables. No fire rings but can go to the adjacent park and have one. Nice park for the kiddies. Restrooms were clean but need new paint on the floor to tidy it up. - easydoesit

Very disappointed in this park for the high price. The setting is pleasant, nicely wooded, but spaces are very tight. There is one toilet and one tiny though clean shower for the whole place. Check-in was fine, but no help available in the morning as the office didn't open till 1 p.m. Very pleasant to walk around and look down at the lake. Very difficult to enter and exit near a curve on the busy Glenn Highway. We wish we had driven the few miles back to Big Bear Campground on the Parks Highway--much better for much more reasonable price. - M H Osborn

We stayed 3 days while we visited Palmer, the Independence Mine, Etlukna and Thunderbird Falls. The park was pretty basic. There were pull-thrus and back-ins. Some pull-thrus might not have had a sewer. The hook-ups were fine, the site was relatively level, we had a picnic table. It was shady and it was convenient to all that we wanted to do in the area. It was a mix of monthlies and transients. Most of the sites were pretty close. - swike

We pulled into the CG but the site were not ready for us. They offered another site but we did not see it was suitable.
We looked at the sites we were offered were very tight. The seasonal sites were cluttered and looked like a dump so we left. - Larryvt

This is the nicest RV park we found in the Anchorage area. It has generous spaces with lawn in between, clean and roomy restrooms and showers. There's room to walk nearby. We felt the $29-30 price was very fair. Staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. We liked it so much we came back for a second night later in our trip. - M H Osborn

Park is OK. Navigation is easy. We had a 'super site' which is what you need if you want a long enough site to park the tow vehicle. There is a playground for kids, but they are rabid about having adult supervision--so, what is the point of having the park exactly? They are also a bit nutty about rugs on the grass--wouldn't even allow a small 'welcome' mat (to wipe our feet). Seriously?
No cable available. - Desert Girl 4932

We pulled in late. Office made it easy to register and find a spot after hours. Staff was friendly and by far the showers were the cleanest we have seen this week. Sites were spacious and easy to get into. - Giggling guest

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. - monaco cruiser

A nice campground in the woods with paved roads and sites at first sight. But all sites are sloping and only one third of the sites are singles, the rest is double, triple of even quadruple sites arranged like small parking lots. If you want some privacy come early and try to grab a single site. Since it is not far from Anchorage you should expect a mostly full campground during holidays and on the weekends. It is dry camping with pit toilets and some water spigots available. Despite staying here during one of the weekdays where ATV's are not allowed, it was busy and noisy. Quiet times where nonexistent. Cars driving around, music, loud chatter, wood splitting, you name it, well after midnight. The lake is half a mile to walk, very nice setting and views.
We can only imagine how this place must be like when dozens of ATV's are buzzing around, actually we don't really want to know and therefore won't come back. - TheSchweitzers

This one of the most beautiful campgrounds I have ever seen. It is immaculate with paved roads and sites. We were here in early spring and the scenery was nothing short of spectacular. A kayak rental shack is near the lake. A great ATV, bike, or hike trail goes along the lake for about 12 miles. Weekends fill up fast and it's a 10 mile road from the main highway, but worth it if you get a site. Most sites are well spaced and heavily wooded with tables and fire rings. - hhendrix

Quiet campground close to Anchorage. All sites are well separated with natural vegetation. It is very close to the beautiful Eklutna lake. We didn't have the time, but there are a lot of hikes in the area and kayak renting. No water connection (only a water pump) nor dump station. - bertismo

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. - TheJim

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. - planegm

One of the designated camping areas on Hatcher Pass Road. This is the parking lot for the Gold Mint Trail, accessible from a hairpin turn at mile 14. It's all paved, level and about hundred meters set back from the road. The 'sites' are the parking spaces on the right side where the picnic tables and fire pits are. Pit toilets at the trailhead. Threaded water spigot to fill up fresh water on the opposite side of the parking lot. Nice views in the mountains surrounding the site. Very quiet. The whole area allows recreational gold panning so try it in the creek right besides the Gold Mint Trail. Independence Mine is a few miles further up the road. Plenty of trails in the area. - TheSchweitzers
