3 Parks near Kenai, Alaska
Aug 2015 - $47.00
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
