Good thing I made reservations for this park. It was full unless you had a reservation. It must be popular with caravans as several were here during our stay. Efficient staff in the office and free coffee as well. Our site was a fairly level gravel pull-through. Some grass or trees between sites. Most sites have a table. Room for big rigs in the pull-throughs, but not their toads which made for a narrow passage on the loops due to vehicles parked on the roads. All the utilities worked fine. Cable TV had around 12 channels and most were clear. Wi-Fi was hopeless. It is provided by Tengo and slow as molasses. Laundry was clean and efficient. There is a nice picnic area by the Chena River. A walkway leads you to the Alaskan Grill. There is a nice gift shop in the office. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a full service campground, a gift store, self service RV/car wash. Full hookups, sites are close together but clean. Our 30 amp service was only pulling about 109 volts. It was very warm when we were here, so a/c was on. Cable TV was good, Wi-Fi very weak. Free coffee/tea in office. Nice room to walk the pup. Verizon/Sprint service worked well. We would stay here again. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice grassy area to walk along the Chena River, pup loved it. The Chena's Alaska Grill within walking distance. Nice restaurant, pricey but good. The park will book tours for you, offer pet feeding/walking service, did not try it. Safeway and Fred Myer very close by.

We found this park to be the best value and most convenient of the area RV parks. If you want cable TV be sure to specify when you check in as not all sites have this service. Most sites are comfortable for a large motor home with multiple slides but be careful. Some have trees very close that could cause problems when setting up. Utility hook ups were all fine. Park has a great RV wash, easy to use dump and water fill stations. Staff were very helpful and willing to work with us on the rate for a month long stay. Lots of turnover! Many one-night campers and caravans so expect a fair amount of traffic. We did notice the airport noise, which is about 3 miles away. Didn't notice mosquitoes as we did in other nearby parks. No doubt we would stay here on a return visit to Fairbanks. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat at Chena's Alaskan Grill just a 3 minute walk away. (EXCELLENT but a bit pricey.) Take a day trip north to the Arctic Circle. Take a close up look at the Alaskan Pipeline just north of Fairbanks. The Museum of the North is well worth a visit.

Nice park with gravel roads; level, gravel sites with grass and trees in between. Great location on Chena River; close to shopping and attractions. Laundry was clean and WiFi worked good. Pet-walk area with grass. We would stay here again. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate posted is based on their daily rate but since I am staying here for two months while visiting family my rate was $995 per month. One of the most expensive monthly rates that I have paid except for an ocean-side RV Park on the Atlantic side of Florida. The two things I object most to about this RV Park is their Internet service is slower than dial-up provided by their Internet provider. There is no charge for Internet BUT in exchange you get the worst service and connections speeds in the world plus if you use too much you get blocked. The other item that is unacceptable is that their cable TV service goes down way too often and usually right in the middle of watching a HBO movie. The office staff will always blame it on the weather, yeah right! The best part of staying here versus at the only other full service RV Park in the area is the quality of the water. The "other" place had way too much iron in their well water which caused lots of problems. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a well run RV Park. The way the entrance is set up you can tell they have a huge turnaround of RV's. So that said, I wondered why we were placed so close to the office when there were sites closer to the river that were unoccupied during our stay. Maybe you have to ask for those sites, I don't know. Wonderful shade for morning and afternoon sun so you need to watch the slideouts so they don't hit the trees. The hookups for water/cable/electric were at the end of the site while the dump connection was in the middle. So we had to unhook our shortest line (cable) to be able to use the dump connection. This is the very first site we did NOT have to level. It was perfectly level. This campground is indeed on the river's edge and there are sites close to the river. There are picnic tables along the river's edge for use. Very pretty site. They have hotel rooms and a resturant which we had dinner at -- very good but can be pricey. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Within biking (not motor) distance of Fred Meyer; Resturant is very good; MUST see: Museum of the North; Pioneer Park and AUTO museum (yes, Auto museum)

First time RVer. Pleasant, well run operation. Given a site near the office with no shade, though nice treed ones were seemingly available. For one night, didn't matter. Self service RV wash was excellent and in high demand. Chena River Grill was a huge disappointment, pricey and the service cost us a three hour block of time! Office staff very friendly. Nice place to stay. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Probably the nicest park we have found in Alaska. Sites are wide enough for slides and awnings with grass or bushes in between. Access roads are a bit narrow but not a problem if you have kind neighbors (which many in the park were not and left their cars/trucks blocking parts of the road). Nice walking trail along river, easy access to the town and bike trails. Wi-Fi worked well (and it is a Tengo site which is surprising). Big laundry, lots of machines ($6) that were all working. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed staying here. Had a nice level pull-through right next to the river. Quiet and spacious. Wi-Fi was iffy, best if we went to the laundromat, which was clean and comfortable. Great restaurant 5 minute walk. We stayed two nights and would return. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We were here over a busy Fourth of July weekend so the park was full. Our site was riverfront so nice view, but a little close to the tent sites. No privacy. Other sites looked more private with trees in between. Management pleasant and helpful. Shuttle bus to tours. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

A little pricey - Good Sam discount. All 50 amp sites taken by caravans. Nice park - easy pull-throughs with ample space. Central to everything. Well maintained. Nice store. Great restaurant with a deck right on the river. Cable TV, free Wi-Fi. Lots to do in Fairbanks area. RV wash area - only $2! Would stay here again. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Tour drivers pick you up in the park. We used the free city bus that stopped next to the office. Fred Meyer is within walking distance if you do not have a car. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Things aren't as pleasant as they were when I stayed here in 2007. Roads need more gravel. It rained and lots of standing water on roadways and in gravelled sites. Wi-Fi worked well most of the time. Seemed to slow down during "rush" hour. Shopping is close with Fred Meyers and Safeway less than 1/2 mile away. The biggest complaint for the four days that I was there is one I have at many CG's. With only a third of the park occupied, why do they have to stack everyone side by side on one or two rows? All said and done, it is still the best CG in the Fairbanks area. I could probably stay here again. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

A few sites can accommodate big rigs. Some of the internal roads are wide, some narrow, some sites are short and narrow for the RVs that are in them, making parking difficult. You can stay for up to three nights and possibly extend one night at a time. The staff is limited with allowing long stays. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

We were somewhat hesitant about booking here based on some of the reviews, but this is a very nice park with plenty of room for big rigs (ours is 40') both lengthwise and width-wise. The staff is very helpful, the park is clean and well-laid out, with grass/gravel sites, some trees (but not too many), and a nice river view and trail for walking. There's a restaurant nearby, bike trail, and all the amenities you could want. It's located near a Fred Meyer and Safeway if you need to do grocery shopping and not far from many Fairbanks attractions. I would definitely recommend River's Edge. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.
