This park continues to be excellent for what it provides. Lacking sewer and water knocks it down two notches. Otherwise it is a 10 for NICE manicured grassy spots. Beautiful landscaping. Pick your own Rhubarb, Raspberries, etc. Nice new tables. No fire rings but can go to the adjacent park and have one. Nice park for the kiddies. Restrooms were clean but need new paint on the floor to tidy it up. We camped at Matanuska River Park in a Motorhome.

This park was an excellent value and quite attractive. The grounds were very well maintained with flower beds and neatly mowed lawns. The gently sloping sites were grass and generously spaced. The only hook-up was 30 amp electric but potable water and a sanitary dump station were available. The shower and restrooms were worn and just OK but clean enough to use. Good signals were available for AT&T phone and data service; several television stations were available via antenna. We would happily stay here again. We camped at Matanuska River Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice municipal park. Electric hookup sites in open grassy area next to local park with playground. Grassy sites have some leveling challenges. Non-electric sites in forested area with good privacy. Under a small airport approach, but not much traffic. A few short hiking trails that need some maintenance. Clean restrooms. No WiFi, but reasonable 3G coverage. We'd certainly stay here again. We camped at Matanuska River Park in a Motorhome.

I'm the summer park host and just wanted to get this park "in the system." We get a lot of good comments from campers and was surprised nobody had reviewed the park yet. This is a "bare bones" park run by the borough -- if you need a clubhouse, Wi-Fi, etc., you'll have to go elsewhere. But a lot of people use us as a "base station" as they explore other parts of the state and if I wasn't the park host this is the place I'd camp in the Mat-Su Valley, for sure. We camped at Matanuska River Park in a Travel Trailer.
