12 Parks near Kenai, Alaska
Jun 2013 - $1.00
This campground is no longer in business. We drove by the lot where it used to be, but the buildings are barely standing, and the area that used to be the RV sites is overgrown. - jdew

This is a great little RV park. The park and bathrooms are immaculate. Picnic tables have a pot of flowers on them after check-in. The park is 2 blocks from the Cook Inlet overlook and is located within the Kenai historic district. The owner is a little "quirky" but his wife more than makes up for it. If the Wi-Fi had worked during our stay we would rate it a "10." - PatriotParents

Great little park. Neat, tidy, and well maintained by a friendly couple. Lovely, level sites with grass in between and a neat table. It even has a potted plant on it. Certainly would return if we are ever back in this area. It's a gem! - Pegbag

A lot of money for what you get for a site. Up charge for site with view. You can see the view w/o paying extra. Bathrooms and private shower rooms are nice and are free. Laundry looked good and not too expensive compared to laundromat. - Wyboo

We had a bluff view site. We backed the travel trailer into site #75. The manager assisted to insure we got it positioned the way we wanted it. Side to side required no leveling. The cable reception was good with various channels. The wifi was weak at times. The office folks were friendly. We were able to reserve a site for 2016. - rvak

Gravel roads and level, gravel, very tight sites. Fortunately, Park wasn't full and Owner left every other site empty, except the row of sites with view of Cook Inlet. Those Sites (67 to 75) are Motor Home Sites, which must pull in forward to access hookups. Park has convenient location, Cable TV and working WiFi. Owner owns vacant lot near Park Exit, where campers are allowed to walk their dogs - otherwise there would be no good place. We would probably not stay here again. - FranM

An excellent place to get away from the fishing frenzy in Soldotna and Kenai. As you drive up here be aware of moose, particularly on the last ten miles. Slow down, the last five miles are pretty bumpy anyway. But as soon as you pull in the campground you realize the drive was worth it. Away from it all, atop a cliff over a beautiful beach (ten minute walk down) reminding me of Oregon Coast you pick a site and enjoy the privacy provided by the trees and shrubs around. If it wasn't for the occasional helicopter transporting stuff to and from the oil rigs it would be totally quiet. Pit toilets and hand water pumps are provided and the camp host sells firewood. Sites are somewhat unlevel. Picnic table and fire pit in each site. Unlike stated in other reviews, we didn't experience any mosquitoes, lucky us ... - TheSchweitzers

This state park was remote, very attractive, and had lots of mosquitoes (more than lots). The sites are all dry and back in; perhaps 1/4 would accommodate our 36 ft RV. Only pit toilets and no showers. We found a lovely site and were able to get level and stayed two nights. Could hardly see the people in the next site for all the vegetation. A hike to beach was great and the tidal fluctuation fascinating. - Citellus

Per the previous reviewers, this campground is about the view. Note however, that the views are not available from the campground itself. You will need to walk a short distance for the view (and also to the beach). The camping spaces are along a narrow road in a thickly wooded area, and very few of them (if any) seem level. Also, there are no pull-throughs that we saw. Only a few of the back-in sites could tolerate a 40' RV, and then it would be tight. And keep in mind that the thick woods will mean lots of mosquitoes. So, be aware of the trade-offs. Also, if you stay here and do go down to the beach area, be aware of the tide patterns for that day and don't assume that you can just watch the tide coming in and beat it to shore. - jdew

Good signage at road, but then a long dirt driveway to the office - all the way to the last section of the resort, it's not near the main road and the first set of campsites you come to when you arrive - signage to office was small when we got here, but over the course of a week, larger panels were added to signs to make them visible to those looking.
Campsites varied in sizes and services from spacious full hookups to buddy (read really close together) campsites to boondock camping in their pasture during the weeks of dip-net Salmon fishing on the Kenai.
The bathrooms and showers (en-suite style) were clean even with the campground totally full - great job staff!
Family run: parents, grandparents and children all do various chores around the campground and are very courteous to their guests. There are a few other staff members and they too have been pleasant to speak with. They offered weekly walking/hiking tours in the area, weekly campfires, potlucks, even tours of their farm/ranch - great for kiddos to see farm animals.
While their price is rather high, we stayed there during their peak season and wanted full amenities so we paid for what we wanted & got. - yesmar

Our site was level side to side with no need to add leveling blocks. Front to back was minimal adjustment. The area sites are sand and gravel and when it rained it was messy. There were two places to shower. Those near the office were very clean with nice flooring. The other area had concrete floors that were wet and muddy. The Wi-Fi was very confusing. I was always being asked to login and when I did I was asked to login again. I gave it up and used AT&T. The check-in folks were friendly and concise in the briefing and we were led to our site. This is a very busy and full park during the last half of July. However, they also open a pasture area with no hook ups and park where you want option when the regular park gets full. Possibly I might stay again if required. - rvak

We actually ended up paying $130 for our tent, 2 cars and a boat. We were put in the middle of the llamas, cows, sheep and chickens. So were many others, it was very busy but really... no porta potties nearby. My husband had to go in a coffee can. But that should have been ok with them because there were piles of animal poop everywhere. Then you had to walk about 1/2 mile to the showers in mud and poop. I sure will not do that again. - FloridaGrandma

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

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

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

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

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 was a great park with friendly, helpful owner and staff. Clean restrooms and laundry. Located in the center of the Kenai, so you could do day tours to other areas of Kenai from there. Across the street from the Kenai River for fishing salmon. Some airport noise, but kind of enjoyed seeing the bush pilots go over. Would stay there again if we were in the area. - themadcamper

Nice park located across from the river. It is a bit tight getting into the back in site. All gravel throughout the park, but a nice dog walk at the rear of the park that is all grass. Owner very nice and helpful. He was able to hook us up with a great fishing guide on short notice. Park is convenient to downtown where you can find all services. Site was pretty level and the showers and restrooms were very clean and the showers were free. Would stay here again. - Bud in Florida

We had read a review on the park on this site, but this place was recommended by friends of ours that have been coming up for many years. They told us the place was great, so we decided to try a night here before going to Homer fishing.
We found it just perfect ! Our 45 ft rig was put in a nice wooded lot. We had Wi-Fi, and a firepit and table. And we used their dump station and filled with water. We went on to Homer next day but returned to stay 5 more nights.
Just a great place, we are 66 and 68 and we even tried a canoe out on a lake near by. We saw moose and baby calf, a few loons and trumpeter swans.
We kept our halibut in the campground freezers and shipped overnight fish back home. Just a great experience for us
We will be back again. - Caribouhills

One of the poorest campgrounds we have stayed at in Alaska. Sites were small even though we were told that they could accommodate 38' units. Electric was 30 amp plugs, but power was poor. We ran our generator any time we needed power and unplugged when absent to keep from harming converter (102 volts was normal). Sewer was a 55 gallon drum and overflowed on gray water dump only. Water was well water and we weren't comfortable using it even though we filtered it because of the sewer system. Grossly overrated in Trailer Life. Didn't get the impression that owners/managers cared-you couldn't get a refund after registering. This is an honest appraisal from someone that used to manage a campground. - Shipper
