This is a pretty typical Alaskan RV park. Rough around the edges, and overpriced EXCEPT for the location and view. There are lots of non-hookup RV parking sites on the Spit for a pittance, but if you need electricity (not sure if they have E & W or full hookups), and want to do laundry and use a shower, this is probably your best bet. There is also a dump site free to campers. It's easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, and the Salty Dawg bar. The showers cost a buck and you have to pay at the office and get buzzed in. Didn't use, so can't comment. The restroom was clean, but old and unappealing. The manager was friendly and helpful. The wi-fi was hit and miss. Verizon signal was strong but for some reason my data didn't work most the time. Don't know what the problem was. There are non-hook up RV sites in the front row that are right on the beach, but to the south in the second row there are electricity only sites that only have tent sites in front of them so we had pretty much a full view of the beach and the bay. There are also electrical sites that are non-view and those are cheaper. I would try to plan better next time and stay unhooked at one of the cheaper places instead of needing electricity to charge up the computers etc. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Truck Camper.

If you want to stay right in Homer, this is OK. Sites are very tight, we had W/E only, there are a few FHU available. Antenna TV picked up a few stations, no service for Verizon Wifi, Sprint phone worked OK. Restrooms are adequate, room to walk the pup on beach, around town. Dump available. We like Homer, but we would stay north of town next time. We stayed here in a Travel Trailer. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Very convenient to all of the madness that is Homer, shops, restaurants and the fishing of course. The Ocean Center is very nice, look for the Deadliest Catch fishing vessels in the Marina. We took the Rainbow boat cruise to Seldovia, quaint town, we loved it, saw lots of birds, humpbacks and otters. Grocery store north of town a little.

Pricey park on the spit. When we checked in they said that the "ocean view" row was the second one back from the beach, elevated and cost more. The front row was dry camping and the attendant said that normally the tent campers get those spots. As it ended up the front row was filled with Class C units that created a solid wall of RVs and blocked our ocean view. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Motorhome.

Waterfront sites with views of the mountains across the inlet, and a location near the shops of the Spit are the highlight of this camp. It is a gravel parking lot with relatively narrow sites that are barely level. Our site had neither water nor sewer hookups, but the electricity worked well. WiFi did not work at all. The bathrooms were always nice and clean, though they were old and dingy. Showers cost a dollar, but were unmetered and had plenty of hot water. Laundry facilities were convenient and well maintained. The dump station in a prominent place in the center of the campground was frequently busy this 4th of July weekend, many times with rental RVs whose drivers were not particularly careful about using it hygienically. Price was high for what we got, but everything in Alaska is expensive. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Motorhome.

Electric hookups only, gravel lots, narrow in width. View of ocean is great, not a beach, but a shale shore with many rocks. Believe it or not this is a good deal price-wise for the area. But after seeing Homer once, we won't be back, really not much there other than a few shops and charter fishing. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice view of the ocean, worker very polite. We only got electric but the view made up for it! Close to eating places to walk to. Being at end of the spit the traffic noise was not a problem. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Motorhome.

Had great views of the water, the quaint town was great, shopping and food good too. Activity at the fishing docks were interesting. In the campground the Wi-Fi was not so good! Pretty much the reason why we left for another RVP. Employees were very nice and accommodating for our early departure. Still would recommend it if you don't need internet connection or don't want to pay the high price. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a review for the TRUE Homer Spit Campground, almost at the end of Homer Spit, on the right, just past the Salty Dawg Saloon. If you want true Alaska campground, near the action on the Spit, then this is the place for you. Easy walking distance to restaurants (Finn's Pizza) and fishing charters. A menu of various prices for campsites is posted, ranging from tent / dry camping at $30 a night to waterfront sites for $52. We were in a non-waterfront, back-in site, across from the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry to Kodiak Island. You will track fine black gravel in your rig. There are no water hook-ups, so make sure your water tank is full. There is a dump station and a hose to fill your water tanks if needed. There are ample washrooms / toilets and unlimited showers for 1 dollar. We would stay here again. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is to let others know this campground is not big rig friendly and does not have the hookups shown on the internet. We had made a reservation for a pull-through site for 3 nights based on information we'd read on the internet. This information said there were TV hookups, water, and electric- full hook-ups. When we went to check in we were told there was central water, a dump, and no TV for $42, and we were shown a spot which was so tight we doubted we could open our slide outs. The lady was very nice and after looking at the printed information I showed her she suggested we cancel our reservation and call Heritage if we wanted full hookups and cable. She said she was going to tell the owner about the incorrect information that had been posted on the web. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The gravel parking was tight and the layout of the park was difficult to follow. The laundry facilities were good and clean. There is no shade in the park. It is conveniently located to the activities in Homer. One can walk to most places. Two dogs were left in an RV next to us whenever the owners left and they would bark when anybody or thing walked buy. A real nuisance in the early morning. The Halibut fishing was excellent. I thought it was a little on the expensive side. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Gravel campground with great ocean and mountain views. Helpful, friendly staff. We ended up staying 10 days even though we only came for 3 and had to move and dump once. Short walk to shopping area and boat harbor. Picnic table and fire pit at every site. Excellent laundry room. Very clean shower rooms are cleaned twice a day.

This is a busy and often noisy place, reservations are a good idea. Campsites are small, picnic tables and some fire rings provided. Front row on the beach have no hookups. We had a site in the next row, slightly elevated, spectacular view over the tenters. Bathrooms were clean and kept filled with supplies including hand soap. Showers, $1, were excellent. This is an old campground and not spiffy, but the people are great and if you want electricity on the Spit, this is the place to go. We stayed here 2 weeks and were very happy.

Beautiful location, but not choice sites. A bit cramped and although clean, the grounds were pretty rough. Loved the access to all on the Spit. We camped at Homer Spit Campground in a Motorhome.
