Nice and quiet. No hookups, just power. Free sewer dump. Not much to do or see there. More of a Bar place if into drinking. Not for me. Will not return. - coltont

This was a fantastic RV park plus motel, bar and restaurant. Scenery was great with moose walking through at all times. Very friendly managers. Only minutes from great areas of interest. On the main road from Anchorage to Homer. We stayed here for about 2 months. Would recommend. - Gramma

We stayed one night only because it was late and there was no way to turn around to leave without disconnecting our towed car. I wish we had made the extra effort to get back on the road. The heat generated by their defective outlet caused damage to my plug. Luckily, we carried a spare, and they only cost around $25. Had to use four sewer hoses to reach the sewer connection; and, it was uphill. This requires "running" the hose (lifting it by hand to drain the contents) to make sure there were no surprises when I disconnected. Nasty work. The roads in the park had large potholes, making navigation tenuous. While the campground appeared to be clean enough, it just had an unkempt look that at least made it seem that there wasn't much effort made on the park's appearance. I cannot recommend this campground to anyone. Another camper was in the process of trying to get his money back because the park did not offer the amenities it advertised (wifi, cable, etc.) Every camper we came in contact with was grumbling about the campground. - luckydog

Site was not level, spongy, some grass. Hookups were OK. Restroom was OKn not the cleanest, but acceptable. $7 bucks for a shower is not acceptable. I realize lots of overhead but that's too much. HOWEVER if you want to fish in Alaska this is a great place. Walk to the Kasilof, or you can get charters to float fish, or go halibut fishing. Owners were very helpful and provide good service. Lots of people here if the fish are biting, so call ahead. Probably a mad house during the salmon runs. Would only stay here if I was fishing. - davidmsparks

Great older RV Park in the trees, out of town, within walking distance of the Kasilof River which had excellent fishing for Kings and Sockeye. People were great, location is great (about the middle of everything you want to see and do). Highly recommend the place and staff. Much better than the parking lot RV parks in town. Will be going back. Full hookups, laundromat, C-Store with tackle and more. Cheaper than the in town parks with much more to offer. - coltont

Lovely working ranch on a bluff above the Kenai River flats, with lots to see and do on site. Excellent location from which to head out and see the Peninsula. Level gravel sites with space between, very friendly owners and staff. Long term sites are separate from transients. There is road noise from Kalifornsky Beach Road during the day, but it quiets down long before bedtime. WiFi was excellent. We did not have a site set up for satellite, so cannot address its quality, but they are few in number. We located only one over the air channel, and its quality was bad. Lots of excellent walking paths, a very friendly cat will greet you as you stroll past the barn, goats, sheep, horses and cattle will greet you from the pastures, and tons of mosquitoes will gnaw upon you in the woods (it's Alaska, which does not have a single mosquito. They are all married and have lots of children). We didn't notice any mosquitoes at our site. Every Saturday night, the owners host a potluck supper on the observation deck, where, if you are really lucky, you'll see moose or the caribou herd stroll by. Front office was extremely helpful in setting up a birthday salmon fishing trip, and can assist in setting up other activities, too. An unusual feature here are the pull-through sites arranged in a square around a grassy common area with a huge fire pit. Four such setups will handle groups easily. We would happily stay here again. - L'Andante

The parking spaces are adequate, average for an RV Park. Our problem with this RV Park is that they have bad water. We filled our tank, then found that the water looked like weak tea (brown). They know it and told us the water was good, but we did not feel comfortable using it for cooking or drinking. We are still working on getting it flushed out of our rig's system after draining twice and refilling. The park mentions it in writing in their agreement and you are required to sign. We won't go back to this RV Park again. - R WAGNER

This is a very nice park run by a great family. We stayed in the super size pull through which was a bit pricey, but had lots of room and grass. The family provided a salmon bake pot luck one night and set us up with a great fishing guide. - Admiral II

We didn't actually stay here as we are staying at another c/g right in town. We went in to have a look in the tow car. The road is nothing but pot holes. I am so glad we decided to stay in another campground. It is very busy because this is the Salmon fishing season in Soldatna. The roads are very busy in July.
The sites are a mix of some in the trees and some level pull thrus which for the most part were empty. They were long and wide enough. We really didn't ride around the whole c/g as the roads were just too bad for me. The campground itself looked clean. There was one section that was full of tents and easy ups. - mrracechaser

When we checked in here the attendant had a devil may care attitude. Sites are tail to tail and tight. We had a 30AMP stanchion, water was terrible, came through tea colored and we chose not to use it for anything. We bought bottled water. First night the power died and the staff offered no explanation. The sites are dirt, gravel and weeds. There is traffic noise to deal with but the main problem is, there are no other choices. - SilverBear

This is a small RV park with small sites. Staff was very nice. Good location to fish the Kenai River since they have their own access to the river. Also good location to tour Soldotna and only 20 minutes to Kenai. Power and water were fine but wifi is with Tengo and you must pay to use it. Prices were OK but not free and very slow. My Verizon Mifi worked well as did my cell phone. I would stay here again. - RayN

I was with a group and was not in charge of picking the RV park. The recent reviews here are pretty accurate. It looked like there were much nicer parks in Soldotna but, grass is always greener. This was convenient walking distance many things including Dairy Queen! While here, don't miss the Hardware store, great place to graze and honestly, the prices of things were often same as the (far away) Fred Meyer. I might stay here again, I have had much worse experiences (and many better too). If your just here to fish and sleep then it's fine. My son had an RV up here too and he was fearing the worst after looking at the google map satellite photos but, he stayed longer than he thought he would saying, "It's not just a gravel parking lot like it appeared to be." (But that isn't far from true.) Hard to imagine this big of an area in AK that has so few trees. - 04Sundancer

We stayed a week at Klondike in a 40 foot motorhome. Site was quite adequate with large grass areas between sites. We used our own WIFI due to high volume of people trying to use the camp's WIFI. Park is off main road and quiet. Staff was very responsive to complaint of barking dog. We would stay here again. - Lonestar44

This is a wonderful RV park. Other nearby parks are crowded and close together. This park has spacious spots and very friendly, helpful owner and staff. Although we don't use the bathrooms, I overheard a lady saying that these were the cleanest restrooms that she has ever seen. The whole place is kept very clean. They even have an herb garden by the office where you can pick some fresh herbs. Rates in July are higher than in other months because of demand. I would highly recommend reservations as this park was full while we were there. - Light

One of the best RV parks in Alaska, very clean and they keep their roads/sites well graveled and level. All utilities worked well, they no longer have cable but you get over air channels. Wifi works well but they do block most video and picture sites. - sheltieRV

Very basic RV park located in a residential/commercial neighborhood. It is a gravel lot with hookups. It is surrounded by trees and the Kenai river on one side. Access to the river by a long stair way to a small dock. Owner is personable. His grandson/manager is competent and friendly. All utilities are convenient and worked well. Much too expensive and basic for what is offered. Rated as Below Average, we would not stay there again. - Pacatrader

We have stayed here several times over the past five years. We have been extremely impressed with the quality of the way the campground is taken care of by the volunteer hosts. The bathrooms are well maintained and cleaned on a daily basis. There are a variety of campsites available for most types and sizes of rigs. Johnson Lake offers swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. If you are lucky there are even ducks and loons that frequent the lake and seem to enjoy getting their photos taken. We have also enjoyed having moose walk through our campsite. - Doris and Art

At mile 110 Sterling Highway turn off to Johnson Loop Lake Road and follow the signs to the campground right on the lake. There are two loops and both are dry camping. Sites are gravel back ins with trees around and some have lake view. Pit toilets and hand water pumps are provided. Some distant traffic noise from the highway but quiet at night. The lakes invites for a swim and quite a few families with kids enjoyed the opportunity. Seems to be a popular place since it was almost full on the first stay and fully occupied when we tried to stay again a few days later. - TheSchweitzers

Kasilof RV Park is a small park with only 17 spaces, 5 of which are permanently occupied each summer. This is an "extended stay" park. In June and August the minimum stay is a week. In July the minimum stay is a month. They apparently get lots of repeat year to year business. The hookups in the full service sites on the front row are fine but only the front row has sewer, and 4 of those 8 spots are permanently taken. The remainder of the park is water and electric only, although they have a dump station. Wifi was decent while we were here and I'm sure it's partly due to the small number of patrons. Our site was long enough for our 43' pusher without toad, but due to some very unruly trees on both sides we barely got our slides out and couldn't use our awning. Branches scraped the roof and awning housings constantly in the wind.
This is another park that needs to seriously look at clearing out some brush and branches, especially if they want to keep saying they are big rig friendly. There are some turns on the park road and some sites and approaches that are too tight with the existing vegetation and overhanging branches. As it is, I wouldn't consider it as big rig friendly.
All in all this is a quiet, pretty, little park and it is moderately priced by Alaska standards. There is obviously a sense of community among many of the patrons/residents and everyone we met was quite friendly. The gracious lady in the permanent site next to ours walked around our second day and passed out bags of homemade chocolate chip cookies to all the various rigs.
This park is not a destination; it's a jumping off point to much of what the Kenai Penninsula has to offer. Other than a community fire pit, that's it for activities at the park itself.
If you have a normal size rig you will most likely be fine, but 40-45 foot Class A units with tag axles and multiple slides might want to think twice or risk scratching up their paint. - 3browns

Really enjoy our stays here. It really is park like and so glad to get away from the parking-lot campground! It was very full in July but still the bathrooms were immaculate as the other review said. We now take our camper there for the whole month and it works out to be cheaper and so much easier for me on set up and getting back and forth. - ChristyAnc

Wooded sites, bigger than most in Alaska located across from Johnson Lake in a rural setting. There was a calm, relaxing atmosphere. Very nice, helpful owners/hosts. Moose in the area. Close enough to Clam Gulch for razor clamming and Soldotna for salmon fishing, yet away from the crowds. We loved it here and would camp here again. - boomerang

Unfortunately we stayed during the high season, which meant we paid a premium price. Most everyone there were Alaska residents there for the dip netting for salmon. I think we were the only ones not there for fishing. Also unfortunate was that it rained the whole time we were there. No fault of the park, of course. If you are there to fish, this is the place you want to be. The park overlooks the Cook Inlet where the Kenai River runs into it. Don't count on seeing any Beluga Whales, as they somewhat imply. You will likely see seals and sea otters. There is a walkway down to the beach and just a block from a historic Russian Orthodox Church. Sites are very close. Neighbor's awning nearly touched our slide. Most are pull-thru sites. - Cyberhag

Pull through spot with close sites. Gorgeous setting and scenery was very nice. Six or seven washers and dryers (all working and very reasonable). Showers and stool in shower areas. Would definitely stay here again - Never Lost

Nice campground on the bluff overlooking the Cook Inlet.. Called Beluga lookout, however did not see any Beluga whales.. Probably need to be very lucky to see them.. Maybe closer to the mouth of the Kenai River.. As stated by others very close quarters but not a big deal. We were on the front row and had a great view...... - g and p
