The campground itself is quite nice and typical of many Alaska State Parks. The pull through sites are fairly narrow in the radius and are better utilized by smaller campers or trailers. Some of the backin sites are doubles, some of the singles are long but most are short. The real limiting factor is that the last 1/4 mile or so of the 1/2 miles gravel road coming into the campground is posted as 14% grade, is generally washboard, but the uphill side is better described as stair steps. The road is properly posted as not maintained and it could be difficult for some RVs to deal with that surface. Those with campers and tents should have little trouble. The campground is nearly at the end of the road going south from Haines and is probably underutilized because of the access road. Before taking an RV in, I would recommend scoping it out first before deciding. We camped at Chilkat State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park itself is nice, sparsely used and no wonder, with the access road as bad as it is. Although the sign said '14% grade', it probably wasn't that steep but the potholes and general condition made it very unpleasant even with my small Class C. I don't think I'd return here unless the road was improved. The sites are gravel and not level. We camped at Chilkat State Park in a Motorhome.

This park has a beautiful setting, but the road into it is unsuitable for big rigs. Truck campers would be fine, but beware - the entry road is a 14% grade gravel road with very large potholes and the worst washboard I recall seeing. In Haines, I'd stay elsewhere and visit this park for a few hours. We camped at Chilkat State Park in a Motorhome.

We didn't stay here but drove through to see if our 40' motorhome would fit. This is not a campground for big rigs. RVs up to 34' would be fine. It's a pleasant-looking park. The campground is not on the water but a short walk. There is a boat ramp and rocky beach to walk. There is a host in an information cabin. The vault toilets were clean. There is a water pump. There is no dump. If you had a kayak or boat this would be a very nice place to use it. It is 7 miles from Haines via a paved road until the last mile. It is then a wide gravel road. The last 1/2 mile is downhill on a 14% grade. It didn't seem that steep to us and it's only for a short time. From town, take Mud Bay Rd. and watch for signs. WE DID NOT STAY. We camped at Chilkat State Park in a Motorhome.
