Dry camping. Beautiful setting. Big spots. Lots of mosquitos. Our spot was level and very nice. It had fire ring and picnic table.
Dump station and host.
It was a very nice campground and easy to park.
We enjoyed this little spot and would recommend it. - Caribouhills

This is a dry campground with no hook-ups. There is a potable water place and latrine type toilets. Campsites have firepits and picnic tables. Summit Lake Lodge is near the campground. - CherGib

Very scenic campground with mountains all around, a few sites near Kenai Lake, and a few other sites near Trail River. A number of good hiking trails are nearby. It’s a forest service campground with no hookups. There are pit toilets, they are kept very clean. - MT Pokets

Showers are pristine. Toilets: none available except portable. Wifi is poor, so if that is important, I would stay elsewhere. The spots are level, as the campground is basically one gravel parking lot. Water/Electric only, no sewer. - Desert Girl 4932

This RV park is basically a big gravel parking lot. There are a few back-in sites at the edge of the campground that have grass and fire rings. Wi-Fi works good if your site is fairly near the office. The real draw for this place is the setting which is just beautiful! It is also conveniently located to Whittier from which we took a day cruise. Price seemed to me to be steep for what we got. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if we needed the water and electric hook ups. - Another brick in the wall

This is a nice park. Setting is perfect....quiet, creek side, picnic tables and fire rings. Nice, free showers, but only 2 for the whole park. They are located in a building near the office, but there are no sinks, just shower, and signage that directs no hair styling within the building. Porta potty johns for toilets. Our site was creek side. Very nice full hook up. There is a hut with community bonfire At night. But for the price, I expect more amenities. - Wyboo

Very nice upgraded federal campground with paved roads and paved & gravel sites. Many sites will accommodate larger rv's.
Very private and secluded sites. No hookups. - Nodaker

We really enjoyed this campground. The roads and sites were paved, the sites were well-spaced, large and furnished with a picnic table and fire pit. The campground host was friendly and helpful. We also liked the Blue Ice Trail which extends from the Begich-Boggs Visitor Center to Moose ? (can't remember the name.) Much of the trail is a raised walkway. From the VC, you can hike to the Byron Glacier or take the boat to the Portage Glacier.
This campground is also well situated to visit Girdwood with the Bake Shop restaurant, the Winner Trail and the hand tram. On the other side is a cool tunnel and visit to Whittier with the Horsetail Falls Trail.
This campground is a very nice campground but is also well sited for great touring in the area. - swike

We enjoyed staying at this campground. It is nestled in the gorgeous Portage valley. The sites are of ample size and not too close to the neighbors. The "Trail of Blue Ice" runs through the campground. It is a hiking biking trail that is several miles long that is worth the effort to travel. It is dry camping with outhouses and hand water pumps. Our site was level and was big enough for our 20' trailer with the p/u still attached. We only briefly talked with the camp host as we had reserved our site in advance. We used this campground as a base to explore the area. We would stay here again. - Another brick in the wall

This is a wonderful, little park right on the shore of Kenai Lake. Their RV sites are a short walk from the lake and are all back in sites. We had no problems leveling our coach and the power and water were both stable through our 4 day stay.
The RV sites don't have sewer hookups, but there is a convenient dump station nearby. This campground is exceptionally clean, quiet, and well cared for, and the staff is extremely helpful. The drive to Seward is about 20 minutes from the campground, through some wonderfully scenic country. - glenstmary

This is a nice little park locate 19 miles from Seward. It is on Lake Kenai, though the RV sites are not lake front. The restrooms and showers are spotless. All the sites are back in and quite roomy. Each has a fire ring and picnic table. The owner is very helpful and very attentive. The WiFi works. He has some paddle boats for your use on the lake. It is very quiet and site are pretty level and quite large by Alaska standards. There is also a lot of grass around. The only negative is the distance from Seward. - Bud in Florida

Neat little campground, with spacious sites, spotless bath & laundry room and friendly owners. The sites are back-in but lots of room to maneuver. Fire pits and benches at sites. There are also six small log cabins on the property but separated well as they are along the lake (Kenai Lake), the RV sites are not, though can use pedal boats to go onto lake. Wi-Fi is free and actually works for a pleasant change. This is 19.9 miles north of Seward; look for their sign on west side of highway. Easy to spot if you are heading towards Seward, harder if coming back northward. - Bill&Kath

Ditto on the last 3 entries from 2015, 2013 & 2011. A nice clean campground, friendly hosts. - A-S_Travels

We stayed two different times during the month at this campground. It is a forested campground with nice big gravel sites. It is kept very neat and the hosts always seem to be around working and checking things. The are fire rings and tables. No hookups but generator hours. Quite a few pull thrus. Being in Cooper Landing, we went to the Princess Lodge for dinner, about 5 miles away. Lovely outdoor deck to sit and have a cocktail admiring the view! The campground was full so get there by noon and you should have no problem. We seldom make reservations. - Buckie

The rate reflects a 50% senior pass discount. Most of the campsites in this campground can be reserved, but, thankfully, there are a few first-come, first-served sites. We arrived around noon on a Thursday and got the last remaining first-come site. It was completely full for the weekend, so reserve or arrive early as this is a very busy campground. The dump station and fresh water fill are on the left just before the campground entrance. The fee for use is $5. The campground is about 5 miles outside of Cooper Landing, so is convenient for any activities, such as float trips. It is far enough from the highway that road noise is not an issue. Our Verizon phone and data card worked well here. It is heavily treed, so no satellite. The roads in the campground are narrow and the vegetation is in need of being trimmed back, but we made it OK. There are a couple of sites directly on the water, but most are in a heavily treed area. There is very good separation between sites. There is a camp host but we never saw or heard from them. Nice place, we would stay there again. - TheJim

The Riverside campground is ridiculous. Side by side spaces that were scarcely big enough for our motorhome and they even want to charge an extra $5 for the use of their showers. Bathrooms are not open 24 hours, so you then have to use their portapotties. We asked for our money back and they required us to pay for 2 of our 4 night reservation. At least they refunded half. To get into our site we had to drive over the firepit. There are beautiful Forest Service campgrounds a couple of miles down the road. Next time we know better. This place is a classic tourist ripoff. Website picture looks good; reality is not so pretty. - KathyAndJimB

The sites are gravel and a good size. Many tent sites. Has indoor washroom and shower, also has several port-a-potties for night use. These were the cleanest best smelling port-a-potties I have ever seen, quite a nice surprise. Manager was very knowledgable and helpful, especially about fishing. However, access to the water front of Kenai river is very limited and due to high water, mainly inaccessible. - lymm

Neglected; needs updating. Campsites are way too close together. No ambience of any kind. Charged for showers: the towels we were given had big holes and shredded edges. Did not feel the showers and restrooms were very clean. This would be my last choice if I ever visit this part of Alaska again. - HuskerMama

Location is great, totally quiet with mountain views. Site was level and easy to access. All hookups were convenient, although power was a bit low due to folks running ac. Small campground, sold out the entire time we were there so make reservations. The only campground we have seen where you are welcome to wash your rig in your site, so bring your brushes. Lodge right up the hill with awesome deck overlooking Kenai River, rocking chairs, bar/grill area with deck seating and a menu with prices comparable to everywhere else we have been in Alaska. Very welcoming staff at lodge and campground. Wifi ok, not great. Verizon reception mediocre. Cable great. Would definitely return to the campground or lodge. - Pktva

Beautifully located and very quiet. Level sites, fairly roomy, good wifi and phone service. Laundry was $2 a load - the lowest price we have ever paid per load. The best part was going up the short trail to the lovely rustic Kenai Princess ( yup, the cruise line) Lodge where we enjoyed sitting on the deck with a stunning view of the turquoise Kenai River and huge, steep mountains. They have a full bar and excellent food. Very friendly staff - they ALL seemed to like their jobs. RV park guests are welcome there. We are going back. - alm

Nice park near best salmon fishing and bear viewing. 30 amp full hookup level back-in sites. Good WiFi and cable. Beautiful views and nice trails. Note: pretty sharp entry with sizable downhill. - teepee51

For $20 a night, at least a little gravel in the obnoxious potholes could get some attention. We knew about getting above the boat parking for the campground, so we didn't have the problem in the boat area. It rained the 2 days we were there and the entrance is nothing but DEEP water filled potholes over the entire road around the CG. Site are mostly level, part gravel/grass but the clean-up is terrible. There was trash near almost every site. It IS convenient if you have a tour scheduled, but I doubt we would stay again. Like the previous poster, we would use one of the CG's outside the tunnel and leave early to make sure we made it into Whittier on time. - Nevada Nick

This is the only RV park actually IN Whittier so it does save you the drive through the tunnel on the day you have any scheduled activity/cruise from the Whittier harbor. However, it is poorly run. No one in sight when we went to check in mid-morning where the sign said they were open. So we rode over the horrible rock/gravel road (truly worse than any road we traveled in the Yukon) and parked beside some boats (it is also parking area for boats, day parking, etc.). We set up and a few hours later went back up to pay and there was a woman there and she snapped that we'd have to move because the campground was in the back. We paid her and did move, but the road back there was absolutely horrible. You can't even go 3 MPH without fear you'll damage something on your coach or tow vehicle. The sites are not level, but shaded, near a creek with a gorgeous waterfall cascading down a nearby mountain. It is dry camping, nothing more than a place to park, but since we were already in Whittier, it provided us with no worries about getting through the tunnel in time for our day cruise. It's a shame, because if they'd just fix the employee customer interaction and do some maintenance on their roads, lot, and sites, they would be an IDEAL place to boondock for Whittier adventures. Next time, we'll try another and risk the timing of the tunnel drive. - DebGA
