We stayed four nights in a 38' class A. Site was relatively level. Good stable 119VAC throughout our stay. Water tasted good but has a lot of tannin so it was brown. WiFi was free and good enough for email and downloading files but no streaming capability. Verizon MiFi worked very well but phone would only connect through WiFi calling. This is wilderness camping so don't drive down the gravel road if you are looking for 5 star entertainment! Supposed to be good grayling fishing in the creek. Dump station at the office is easy to access. NO highway noise day or night and very quiet day and night! Showers and restrooms were very clean and ample hot water was available. Top loading washing machine is $2.00 and dryers are $.50! This is a place to spend a day or two in a lounge chair watching the creek flow. After a couple months of seeing sights and driving it is nice to just unwind! We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Based on reviews, we decided on this campground. Rutted dirt road about 3/4 mile off highway. Have to drive over rotting, one-way bridge to dirty, unprofessional office. Laundry hasn't been cleaned this year. Washer or dryer left oil-type stains on clothes. Water at site not working. Park under "boil water order". Site on creek the best thing about this campground. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for one night in our 31' Class C RV. At $35 per night it is a bit more expensive, but it does have electric (50 & 30) and water available at each site. There is a dump station, but no sewer at the sites. Very nice campground with a lot of trees and nice shady sites. We stayed in site 4, which, due to two trees, was barely wide enough for our RV. If you are assigned that site just be aware that it's very narrow (we had 3" total to spare). It does abut the stream which provides a nice backdrop for camping. Although our site was gravel it was level. Fire pit and picnic table were good. Bathrooms and shower houses were nicely equipped and mostly clean. As far as RV parks in Alaska are concerned this is one of the nicer ones you'll find. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

If you're looking for campsites like state parks frequently offer, but with the extra services of w/e & easy access to dump station, then Tolsona is the place for you. 90 + sites, all along the creek - there are just a handful of 50 amp sites, the rest are 30 amp or no electric (tent). But everyone is along the creek! First you drive in to the campground (over 1/2 mile from highway). good dirt road, trees cleared along sides and overhead for big rigs. Most sites are back ins - and while the sites are spacious in width, some access points are tight for the long rigs. Sites come with fire rings and picnic tables. Bathrooms are ok - 2 stalls each m&w. Showers are individual rooms. Dump station was clean. Can image a long line if a caravan or crowd was there. Cleared roadways and walking paths throughout the park - and for the adventurous, there's a path to a "mud volcano" - ask at the office for details. Wifi was available on office deck, but our Verizon wifi pulled in enough of a signal for us to use our own.
Biggest plus to campground for this writer was the older gentleman who checked us in - he was an absolute joy and has a very quick, slightly sharp, wit. Biggest downside for us was the mosquitos. Early June and they were thick as thieves. Bug spray and face nets worked. Price reflects Passport - offered early and late season. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Truck Camper.

We triple filter our water whenever we take some on - for us, Tolsona's was not clear (iron residue?) but was drinkable.

This RV Park has a lovely, natural setting with all sites situated along a nice creek. By "natural", I mean lots of vegetation and the sites are dirt. That means that the vegetation gives nice privacy and separation between the sites, but it also means LOTS of bugs (at least this time of the year). If you are looking for "Class A" accomodations and lots of nice amenities, this isn't for you. But then, MOST of the north country probably isn't because fancy RV parks are few and far between around here. Come armed with plenty of DEET and headnets. The dirt surfaces will require leveling in most cases. The shower rooms are actual private rooms with glass shower doors on the stalls and a bench in the changing area. Very nice, but the one I checked out had a bunch of mosquitoes flying around so I decided to pass on the shower. In another time of the year when the bugs aren't so bad they'd be great. The laundry room is spacious and bright and has a decent size folding table, but only two of the three washers were working. They have four dryers though, of varying vintages and condition. Washers cost $2 per load and dryers use $0.50 for 20 minutes. You'll probably need two cycles to dry anything other than quick dries. No wi-fi except on the porch or the office, but they say they are just waiting for a part in order to get it up and running throughout. Verizon was weak, one to two bars 3G. All in all, it's a decent place and a decent value especially with the Good Sam discount. I'd probably stay again, but try to get here in the fall, maybe, when the bugs might be less odious. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Truck Camper.

Rate unknown as we were traveling as part of a prepaid caravan. This is the kind of park that were expecting in Alaska. Heavily treed in a wilderness setting with 30 amp and water service. Most sites are creekside - a few were pullthru. Most parks in Alaska are cramped gravel parking lots with few trees and little grass. Given the creek and trees there are mosquitoes - spray with deet before going out. We would definitely come back and stay more nights. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This may be our all-time favorite commercial campground as it is like staying in a nice state park with all the amenities of a commercial facility. All sites abut the river, so one can fish from one's doorstep. WiFi was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful. The campground is heavily forested, and not being crammed against other users made it very quiet and relaxing. We wish it were closer to our home.

Tolsona is between Tok and Anchorage in a remote area. Visiting Lake Louise and picking blueberries were the major local activities.

During our two month Alaska trip we rate this RV park the best private campground we stayed at. Other than those few mosquitoes this place is beautiful. Every site is right on the creek. If you don't like the sound of a running creek at night and no traffic noise you probably shouldn't stay here. We set up our screen house and enjoyed the lovely creek and a nice fire.

We stayed here one night in a motorhome. Very helpful staff. Most sites are along the creek and are very nice but small. We had no problem getting our 36' motorhome into our site. Good power and water. Wifi worked mostly around the office. There are a lot of bugs but we had no problem when we were outside. We would stay here again for a night.

If you have time we recommend a stop at the Wrangell St. Elias NP which is about 20-25 minutes from the RV park. A national park we had not heard about until we read the Milepost.

This is not your typical Alaska RV park! Heavily wooded with each site along side a clear, clean creek. Yes, the mosquitoes can be bad, especially right after a rain, so bring lots of repellent. We had a pull-through with 30 amp and water. Wi-Fi isn't the strongest but works. The Gray Jays flit from one campsite to another looking for food and if you put out some bread they will practically land on your hand! Very nice owners/staff. We will definitely be back. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Gravel roads & level, gravel, fairly roomy sites. Pretty park on Tolsona Creek, trees & bushes add privacy. Large, open area of grass - good for walking our dogs. Water was a brownish color, like very weak tea. Owner says its fine, but we used bottled water anyway. Mosquitoes were terrible! They swarmed in hordes every time we stepped outside. Because of mosquitos and the brown water, we would not stay here again. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is spacious and all sites facing the creek. It is situated in a forest area with a lot of trees. The owner is friendly and more than willing to give us trip advice. The office also sells many truly antique items.

The unbearable thing is the mosquitoes..there are hundreds surrounding you once you step outside the RV. The bathroom are pretty standard. Shower cost 25 cents for 5 minutes. We did not use the toilet and shower because they are full with mosquitos. It should be a really nice place if not because of its mosquitos.

This was one of our favorites in Alaska. Super friendly staff, treats for the dog. Beautiful spot along a quick flowing stream. Private, level, and quiet (except for the stream). Lots of places to walk the dog. We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. We camped at Tolsona Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.
