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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Some trees, grass and gravel sites. Full hook-up 50 amp. Gravel interior roads were adequate for Big Rigs. Gift shop. Laundromat had many dryers “out of order”. No recycling available. Dump. Good area to wash RVs. Nearby groceries. Restaurant on premises – a bit pricey though. On the Chena River, a few sites have river-view. River’s Edge also has bus tours to Dredge #8 and the Discovery Riverboat – we did them both, and they were excellent! This was a nice campground....not just for Alaska, but a nice campground. If they made repairs in the laundromat, it would be very nice. 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.

They would not take reservations for summer solstice weekend, but they told us on the phone that if we got there early we should get a site. So at 2 PM there was a site available for 2 nights, and maybe something would become available for the 3rd and 4th nights we wanted. We clearly indicated that our motor home was 36 ft with toad, but the back in site hardly accommodated the RV. And we had to maneuver around other rigs and extra parked cars and pickups to get it barely in. This is one of the two most cramped parks I have ever been in, in 50,000 miles of RVing. That having been said, the hookups were fine, the Wi-Fi worked well. The site was level. The adult staff were friendly (there were younger folks who were just "there"). Showers were pretty good, although only four for a rather large park resulted in regular waiting. We ended up staying 6 nights so that we could deal with certain issues and explore the area around Fairbanks. We probably would not stay there again unless we knew there were not many others. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount for one of the “Super Sites,” which means a site with 50 amp full-hookups and cable TV. We had a rocky start at this campground, but ended up liking it OK. Our check-in experience was not good. There were two young ladies at the front desk that were not very experienced or helpful. They did not explain the options of sites or ask us the size of our RV but assigned us a site that was very narrow and small, even for our smaller motorhome. We would have had to ask our neighbor to put in his awning for us to get into the site. We chose another site in the fairly-empty campground and went back to change sites. They were willing to change, but had a very difficult time with the transaction. We left for a couple of days and, on our return, chose another site that was even nicer. We found throughout our two stays that the front desk staff could use a lot more training. Some of the sites in the campground are very close together, with even back-to-back sites. Other sites are nicely spaced, a few with vegetation in between. We chose our site not because of the 50 amp but because of the spacing. Choose your site carefully and you will be happier. The campground is on the Chena River and you can pay more to get a river-front site. The campground is close to a major highway that can be noisy, so take that into consideration in selecting a site. It is also close to the airport, but not on a major approach, so we had no problem with airplane noise. Their WiFi signal was strong and worked well. The cable TV is very limited, but worked well. All of the utilities were good. I am not for sure what the earlier reviewer could be referring to. The utilities are all on the correct side. Our Verizon phone had a strong signal and our Verizon data MiFi worked well. We did use their services for booking some activities, such as the riverboat tour. It is nice that transportation to the tour activities was provided free-of-charge. If traveling in the area again we would stay here. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Sites are narrow and not as long as they say. Our "60'" site was 52' which forced us to park our car between sites with less than a foot between our open motorhome door and the next site. The site was very unleveled with small banks at each end of rock driveway. Mosquitoes were thick and hungry as always in Alaska. I was disappointed with this park as a whole. Utilities were placed correctly and worked well. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park, sites tight. The drives are wide to allow easy parking of our B+, but our 40' class A would be a problem without a pull through, which they do have. Showers clean and up to date. Central location to town with easy access to shopping, restaurants, and activities. Water pressure good, cable poor, Wi-Fi poor at the north fence where we were parked. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

I'd have given the park a 10 except for the unusual location of the sewer connections -- at the extreme rear of the space on the driver's side. Electric and water hook-ups were there, too, but I don't see that as being a problem, since my 25' hose and power cord were long enough to reach. But 20' of sewer hose wouldn't reach from my drain pipe to the sewer connection. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Motorhome.

Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount. This is the best place to say in Fairbanks. The sites are somewhat close together, but not terrible. There is shade and grass between most sites. Our site was level, and the hookups were fine. The only minor drawback was the noise from the highway and the airport (you are directly in the flight path of one of the runways). But that was a minor inconvenience in order to be in town. We camped at River's Edge Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
