16 RV Parks near Kasilof, Alaska
Aug 2017 - $35.00
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

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

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 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

As far as campgrounds go in Alaska this one was very nice. The owner lives on-site and was friendly and helpful; even loaned us a 50 amp extension cord so we could back in further and get satellite reception. The roads and sites are new gravel and well maintained. Almost all sites are back-in but the roads are wide enough that it wasn't difficult to do so. They're all fairly spacious with nice lawn and landscaping between. One area has quite a few trees if you want shade. Wifi was pretty good most of the time. Being only one block off the Kenai River & very close to downtown made it convenient. It's fairly quiet with only minimal noise from the airport nearby (some small planes but not many). We'll be back in a couple of weeks on our way back north from Homer. - Hands For Him

We stayed 4 nights here in a 38 ft. Fifth wheel. We have traveled full time for nearly three years. In that time we have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly. Alaska tends to be a bit less developed than the lower 48, but a park like Klondike would get very good to excellent ratings no matter where it was located. As a bonus, the staff are among the most friendly we have met anywhere. Wish we could have stayed longer! - kltfaught

Excellent campground and the owner works hard to keep it that way. The sites are level, large and ours was easy to get into. The hook-ups are good and well positioned for a motor home - in the middle. The wi-fi is some of the best that we have encountered in an RV park. There is a picnic table at each site and lots of vegetation around to make it seem park like.
It's a short walk to the Visitor Center and town. There is shopping nearby for groceries, etc.
We arrived at 11:00 on July 4th and were told about a barbecue at 2:00. What a fun time that was. The owner provided the hot dogs and hamburgs, the buns and the condiments. We all brought a dish - either hot or cold. Lots of fun and totally unexpected. I've looked at some of the other parks in town and this certainly looks the best. - swike

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

There is 50amp service only on a few sites and 2 of them are pull throughs. However, they are at the end of the road and big rigs don't fit there. The size of the site is OK, but there is a danger of being hit by other campers as they make the turn. The owner is working hard to improve this park and the sites are level with grass between sites. It's close to most activities in town (walking distance). Staff is friendly and helpful. Would stay again but would make sure 50 amp back-in was available. - littlegeneral

This campground is not very well maintained & is totally dry camping, although there is water available nearby. There are no restrooms other than pit toilets & they were not always very clean or well kept. The roads in the campground as well as leading to the campground are very rough dirt roads full of potholes. Really the only thing this campground has going for it is being right on the Kenai river with salmon fishing just steps away. - 2justroamin

The park has nice sites. The sites are wide and spacious. However, the check in person (presumed owner) has an attitude. Very stringent rules about everything. Not a good place to bring a pet. They say they will ask you to leave if your pet urinates or defecates in the park. You must take your pet to the woods behind the park. No bathroom facilities. Showers are clean. Wi-Fi worked well in our site. We will not stay here again. - Jim Sathe

This was a homely, no frills CG (no hook-ups, no showers) right over the Kenai river. The park was extremely busy but we got a pull-through site that fit our 30 ft class A and toad. The dirt roads to and through the CG were very rutted and pot holed. There is a Fred Myer very close to the CG. CG noisy and busy late into the evening/night with an awful lot of traffic on the CG road. It seems to be a popular place for folks who don't mind standing elbow to elbow with dozens and dozens of others to fish the Kenai river. (I guess that's basically the point of the place.) OK for a day or two but overall we thought it was pretty bad. Next time we'll drive the extra miles to the Discovery CG in Captain Cook recreation area, it was much, much nicer and less money. - mahaffee

By far this was the most incredible experience our family has ever had. We literally accidentally stumbled upon this resort and it was the highlight of our 1 month journey across North America. Our original destination was to Homer Alaska so we only slipped into the resort for one night. The next day we continued on our trip to Homer and Homer Spit. We stayed one night in Homer then because the whole family loved the Kenai Riverfront Resort, we went back to and stayed a week. We even had our 17 year old son fly in from Atlanta just to have the opportunity to meet them and enjoy the Resort. The owners of this resort were amazing. The two young men were incredible friendly, very knowledgeable, and extremely patient while showing my sons how to fish for salmon. From the very beginning they all treated us like we were lifelong friends. The entire host family was very much involved with making the Kenai River an unforgettable experience. We even tried some of their recipes from their website with the Red Sockeye Salmon my 12 year old caught off their dock. My children wanted to go back everyday of our long journey back home. Every day they would ask "Can we go back to Kenai?" My children will never forget Alaska and it is entirely because of Kenai Riverfront Resort and the incredible hospitality of the Family and their slice of paradise on the Kenai River. - Slingshotrentals

Found this great RV Park on the Kenai River near Soldotna with excellent salmon & trout fishing, friendly hosts, and hot Sauna!
Lot spacing was spacious with exposures ranging from sunny/open, some shady, to covered/forested. Site surface was gravel with grass, featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - tonjeki

Rate is daily rate with no discounts, for full hookup, pull through site. Park is a block behind the Best Western Motel, registration for the RV park is at the motel. Park is a large open area that has sizable potholes near all three entrances. Sites are quite wide and roomy but there is no privacy. Park electric shut down several times during our stay for brief periods. May have had too many freezers with fish in them as most people seemed to be fishermen even though the park is some distance from the Kenai River. The restrooms and laundry facilities are across the street behind the motel. A park with few amenities, but also not nearly as crowded as those closer to the river. We stayed here both on our way to and from Homer. - Big Moose
