This is a very nice state campground. The sites are spacious and even though you can see your neighbors, there is lots of room between sites. They are arranged in such a manner that allows you to see everything your neighbor is doing, however. There are only five sites on the lake (all pull-throughs) and one of them is the host, so it isn't easy to get a site on the lake. Big rigs would probably not have any trouble negotiating the first loop, but the second one is a little smaller, so it could be a little tight. We had no cell (AT&T) or WiFi (Verizon). We also couldn't get radio or television. We camped at Chilkoot Lake State Recreation Site in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a pretty standard Alaska state park. Sites are dirt and shady. There are lake sites but all were taken. Hoped to see grizzly bears on the river but only saw one on my way out after my two-day stay. The road along the river is very busy with bear seekers and vehicles blocking the road but it is an easy walk from the campsites. Bald eagles in residence along the river. Was told that August would be better for bear viewing. Would definitely return. We camped at Chilkoot Lake State Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

There be Bears! A short drive from the campground will take you to the shores of the Chilkoot River where bears come to feed on spawning salmon. This is the iconic Alaska scene. It is easy walking distance to the bears but the inherent danger of being near feeding bears require you to drive and watch from your RV. The CG is located about 10 miles from Haines past the ferry terminal. We camped at Chilkoot Lake State Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

We drove through this park. If our 40' motorhome would have fit we would have stayed. It's in a beautiful setting on a lovely lake and river. The road is paved to it. The sites have good privacy but we wouldn't recommend larger than a 32' - 34' max RV try to fit here. The vault toilets were very clean. It is about 7 miles from town. From the harbor in town take Lutak Road toward the ferry landing and drive about 7 miles. There is a host on site, picnic tables, fire pits, water pump and a boat ramp. WE DID NOT STAY. We camped at Chilkoot Lake State Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful CG about 10 miles from Haines. Good fishing for Dolly Varden in the river exiting the lake. The sites are well spaced out and the vault toilets were well maintained. If you arrive by the ferry, turn right out of the ferry lot. Left takes you into Haines. Some of the pull through sites are a little narrow for big rigs, but there are many back in sites which would accommodate them. We camped at Chilkoot Lake State Recreation Site in a Fifth Wheel.
