3 Parks near Hyder, Alaska
Aug 2015 - $25.00
This community is on hard times and the park reflects the economic reality of the area. What brings people to this community is the bear viewing platform provided by the U.S. Forest Service nearby. The park is basically a large gravel lot with standing water when it rains, which it did in abundance during our 3 day stay. The 30amp power was weak and our built-in surge protector kept kicking the off to our motorhome. Unfortunately, we had to use propane for heat and water heating to compensate. Mentioned the problem to the manager who didn't seem to want to deal with the problem. - Dick & Bev

We had previously stayed here in 2011 and found it to be in a very rundown condition. When we returned this time, it was greatly improved. When speaking with the manager, she told me that for several years she had not been there due to health issues. Upon her return, she has been making significant improvements. It is still a rustic place, but so is the rest of Hyder. The location is fine for a quick drive to bear viewing and close enough to walk to most other sites in Hyder. I like the paperback book exchange which had a large selection. Although we did not use the laundry facility, I think it does need to be updated. I also do not like having to pay for showers. I would rather that be included in the price. Showers cost 3 loonies. We will stay here again. - ryderruns

This camp is just like the town of Hyder, and that isn't saying much for it. The park advertises sites with sewer but there are none. It advertises US TV reception but they have no cable. We were able to get satellite reception. The young man in the office was only there about two hours on the day we stayed. After he left the power went out. I understand there are two things to do in Hyder: see the bears catching salmon in August and see the glacier about 8 miles out of town. - Connie's Co-Owner

The park was not very crowded and pleasant overall. The young men working there were very friendly and kept up the older restrooms that could use some updating. WiFi was in a cutely decorated picnic pavilion. There grounds were a lush heavily forested (rainforest) with a moderate amount of insects; we set up our bug tent. One other downside was that the campground shares a boundary with houses. We sat in our bug tent and watched the dogs in backyards for entertainment. - barkingbear

This is a pretty funky city campground in a densely wooded area with easy walking access to “downtown” Stewart. The sites seemed to have been laid out by someone with a few too many drinks, but it works. Access can be tight in some sites, even for our smaller motorhome. The young man that checked us in was very efficient and had all of the relevant information. He gave us a site that worked well for us. There is only one water fill station in the campground, but we did not have to wait to fill. The dump station is a few blocks away, but not a big deal. Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring. Our site had a 15/20 amp plug that allowed us to keep our batteries charged, but we had to run the generator for anything significant, such as the microwave. They supposedly have WiFi in the campground, but when we were here it was out “because of the weather” (which had been wonderful and sunny). You can get WiFi if you set on the porch of the grocery store a few blocks away. There is no cell phone signal and the campground is far too wooded for satellite reception. To find the campground, just follow the signs as you enter town. It is a very convenient drive to Hyder from the campground and is about 10 minutes to the bear-viewing area. We would likely stay at this campground again if visiting the area. - TheJim

This is a beautiful campground with too many potholes in access roads. Sani dump is 8-9 blocks away. One potable water tap for all sites. And frankly the host while friendly was tired of being host and ready to close campground. Wi-Fi was located in dry kitchen shelter in middle of park and was spotty in connectivity. Stewart is very interesting old mining town with a great pizza restaurant. This city owned campground needs TLC and better facilities. - CAtraveler39

This was one of the worse park experiences we had, during our 3 months on the road. Our site was decent, level, etc. All sites appeared to be buddy sites close together, utilities were very low and TV cable strung on the ground. As previously mentioned, their advertised internet was terrible and I was close to the office. I couldn't get on line as others have reported, and the rude lady in the office kept saying it was my computer.
The lady in the office was very blunt when asking her any question. There is a new looking building next to the office and the people staying in it had dogs that barked frequently and even ran loose a couple of times. Not sure if that was the owner or whom.
They did have a good RV wash, otherwise my rating would have been worse. - Tarheel

Great park surrounded by mountains. Not a 10 due to lousy metered WiFi. - Medic97
