Nice park that is 10 minutes from downtown Fairbanks. Wi-Fi worked good. Cable was very good with a lot of channels. Staff was very friendly. Good central location. We would stay here again. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The fountainhead Antique Automobile Museum is a must. Best antique auto museum we've ever been to. We also enjoyed the Discovery III Riverboat cruise. Very professionally done albeit a little expensive.

This is our 3rd stay and our last at this park. When I checked in I asked about internet service and they said it was very good if you were within coverage of their two antennas--one being at the laundry room and one being at the far corner of the park. We were there two nights and rarely had coverage. Even in the laundry room it was very slow and availability sporadic. When we first saw the laundry room we thought the prices were reasonable ($2 to wash and $2 to dry), until we opened the washing machine lid and saw that the drum capacity is about half the normal size. Then if you need more dry time, you can only put in another $2. Three of the washing machines were out of order and there was a wait to use machines. The campground itself is nice--well maintained and level sites, although they are somewhat small. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed for 10 days. Nice quite park. Electric was good. Water pressure good. Grass between lots. You are a little close to your neighbor but was not an issue for us. Gravel roads but seem to be treated so there was no dust. Pot holes coming in. WiFi good most of the time. Slow in the evenings. Cable tv was good just not many good channels or the ones we watch. The lady running the place was very nice and helpful. Some lots have trees but do not cause a problem. There is a wash rack to wash your car and rv which is nice. Do that before you park. Close to all the things to visit in town. Lots seem pretty level. Would stay again if in the area. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park was not fully open when we arrived. They lost power/water to middle of campground and their riverview facilities were closed. We laughed when we found it. I don't beleive one site as a view of the river. There is a gas station, propane station and rig wash which is very convenient. There is also a conveience store and the bus picks you up right in front of the campground. Could not get more conveineint than that! Sites are close but not too close. Open and no trees. There was a little highway sound but not too bothersome. BUT, since we are near the military base we can hear the revelry bugel in the morning! We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

$1.50 for bus line into Faribanks.

This is a very nice park. Neighbors are kinda close, but at least there's grass between the sites. Very long pull-throughs for big rigs. Wi-Fi was excellent and we were in the furthest site from the office. Cable was great and they had a lot of channels. Would absolutely stay here again! We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park, easy in/out of the pull-through sites. However, all utilities are at the back of the site so you will either have to disconnect and park at the rear of the site or have long cords/sewer hoses in order to hook up if you park with your toad still attached. WIFI painfully slow many hours of the day and sometimes completely unusable. Park is convenient to North Pole and Fairbanks. Free RV wash area after a trip up the Alaska Hwy is greatly appreciated, it is a separate site so if you decide to wash your vehicles you will have to move out of your site or do so prior to parking. We would return in the future. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Staff was very helpful. Sites were level, but a little closer then we like. It was convenient to Fairbanks and easy in and out. We were only there one night but we would go back next time in the area. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our site overlooking the Chena River. Sites were close but the access was good. Internet mostly worked; could be stronger. Nice gift store and wonderful restaurant on the river with great food. Good location to stores and very helpful office staff. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not as quiet as their website would have you believe. A lot of traffic on Badger Rd. in front. Motorcycles, ATVs, etc. Wi-Fi very spotty...it's on, it's off, on, off. It was a little better by the office. Otherwise it was just okay. Not outstanding, just okay. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Started out with two nights and than added three more nights. Good level gravel sites. Not too wide, but decent distance between RVs like most of the Alaska commercial parks. Staff is friendly. Nice grassy area on the river bank to walk the dog or sit for awhile. Park is about 8 miles from the Fairbanks popular sights such as Pioneer Park and the Riverboat Discovery. The town of North Pole is to the east, about 5 miles. All in all, it was a good park choice. Would stay again. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV park was nice but I gave it 7/10 because the river front sites it boasts aren't quite as close as they portray. Also, the office staff was nice but they packed all of us together in three rows and left over half of the park empty. Why they didn't space us out , I don't know. The mosquitoes in Fairbanks were horrible! That has nothing to with my review of the campground, just information for anyone visiting the city for the first time.

This park was nice enough, close to Fairbanks (it is actually in North Pole) and the Christmas shops in North Pole, but we were there during a 90+ heat wave. The last day a caravan pulled in and they were not able to deal with the draw of two air conditioners per RV running and kept tripping the circuit breaker. We were asked to run only one. The caravan group were going out for the evening and were given permission to run their generators for their pets safety in case the power went out. There is a free RV/car wash (hose & water only) at the adjacent gas station. We asked if we could run our generator and use our power washer and were told we could. The laundry room was fine. The park hostess was friendly and helpful. There were pamphlets in the office from an emergency vet service. You never know when you might need it. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for an extended period in a 45' Motorhome and enjoyed it immensely. Huge flat gravel sites with lots of room for our tow car and our 4 slides. Easy maneuvering around the sites and entrance roads. Quiet nights. Pull through and back in available in 30 and 50 amp with some shaded sites. Clean restrooms/showers/park area. There is a beautiful deck overlooking the Chena River and wildlife passes through. Friendly atmosphere; generous office hours with helpful staff; $2 clean washer/dryers; free Wi-Fi that worked for us all day through; free 32 channel cable and excellent reception; pet friendly; riverbank fishing; gift shop and less than 10 miles to major shopping. Many of our neighbors were repeat customers. Would refer friends without hesitation. Our go to place in the Fairbanks area. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Motorhome.
