Beautiful views from our level gravel pull-through site. The utilities worked well as did the cable TV and Wi-Fi. We also had good Verizon phone coverage for phone calls and messages but the data was slow. The park is right off the highway but noise was not a problem and it is easy to get to and easy to get around in. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Good hike to the top of the hill in front of sites. Watched a moose cow and her calves for several minutes while hiking it. We also saw a black bear run across the street near the campground. Good glacier views about 5-10 miles towards Anchorage. Pizza was good but a bit pricey.

This is a very nice park out in the middle of nowhere, with a nice diner and spectacular views of the glaciers. We had ample room for our motor home and toad. The staff was very nice. Not a lot of choices on the Glennallen Hwy, but this was way above what we expected. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Motorhome.

A jewel of a find. Easy access, quiet, great restaurant, and incredible views. Large pull thru sites. I'd definitely stay again when in the area. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We elected to take a premium pull thru site with electric and water only. FHU sites were available. Staff was friendly at check in. Did not use the bathhouse or.laundry. Dump station was available and easy to access. Campground across from mountain with Dall Sheep and a viewing scope is located in the office/restaurant. We could see parts of the Matanuska Glacier from our site. Food in restaurant was nothing special and pricey. We would stay here again. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice place to spend a night. Sites were adequate sized. Might be a bit tight if full, but it wasn't. Hookups were good and we got Wi-Fi at the site (we pull in pretty well). They provide guests with a "special" inexpensive, very good breakfast of bacon, scrambled eggs, and pancakes. The rest of the menu was a bit pricey. While at breakfast, I was able to see some mountain sheep high on the hills across the road. Actually, there were nice views in every direction. We would stay there again. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Motorhome.

A bit over priced but good stop over on way from Anchorage to Valdez. Small & clean. 3 shower/toilet rooms. Owner let us clean our rigs and trucks but had to use hose with shutoff. This was very nice as most RV parks restrict water use. Laundry has $2 washers and $2 dryers. Wi-Fi only good in cafe area because we were unable to get it at our site. Cafe food is good but expensive. We would stop here again. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great stop over place along the Glenn Highway. The sites were level with crushed rock for a base. There is a very good restaurant on site with very good food. The hook-ups were mid-way on the site and no issues hooking up. We could see sheep on the mountain. We would stay here again. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This gravel parking lot is surrounded by pretty mountain views. The sites are level, long pull-throughs for easy access, but a bit narrow. Electrical and water connections were convenient, but we did not choose a sewer site. The bathroom in the restaurant was large and clean, but showers require quarters and we didn't use them. Wi-Fi was free and worked well. The available laundry had just a couple of small machines, so we didn't try it out. It seemed a bit pricey, but so is everything else in Alaska. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We spent an overnight in this park on our way to Valdez. It is a clean, friendly park, with nice space and amazing views all around. The view of the Matanuska Glacier is down the road on a trail from the campground. We had difficulty with the wi-fi as we were at the far end of the row of motorhomes and campers which blocked the signal, but it was fine in the restaurant. Facilities were small but clean. Nice area to walk our dogs. We would recommend this campground. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a gem of a campground. The sites are spaced with care, the view of the mountains is unbelievable. The small restaurant has great food. The owner takes personal care of the grounds and appreciates your business. We will return on our way back from Alaska. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is beautiful. What a view of mountains and mountain goats. You park on rocks and there is a little grass between coaches. Although it took a little to get it level, we finally got it together. With 50 amp, sewer at each site, and cable TV, we enjoyed this location. The only bad thing was that the showers were $2.75, but they were large and clean. We would stay here again if in the area. . We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good park with great views. Nice restaurant. Close to highway but noise wasn't an issue. Typical gravel lot but plenty of room. My 42 foot coach and toad fit; there were others of similar size. Internet stable and good. Cable TV with 7 channels. Easy access in and out, although coming from the West, the access is just past some cabins and on a slight uphill curve. I would stay again.

An easy right off the highway park, but noise is not an issue. We took the short walk to the glacier overlook, which was nice. We didn't eat in the cafe, but a lot of folks did. We paid $2 more for 50 amp service so we could easily do some laundry in the coach. The views were nice and the staff friendly. I would stay here again.

We stopped at Grand View on our way to Seward. It is a nice little RV park. We had sandwiches at the Cafe and they were very good. The staff were all friendly. The view is beautiful! We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Located near the Matanuska Glacier - 5 minute walk for view of the glacier. Berry picking options within walking distance. Sheep viewing. Adjacent to highway. Highway construction (repaving road) was occurring during our visits yet road noise was not an issue at night. Wi-Fi was intermittent. Would recommend against the restaurant because we were served uncooked food and charged full price. Food discounts are available. We are Good Sam Members. We would stay here again.
