Mountain View is a pleasant, friendly park. The mountain view is indeed beautiful. The sites are fairly level on packed gravel. There's plenty of maneuvering room for big rigs - easy in and easy out. The managers are very friendly and laid back. We chose our own sites both times we were there. The Wi-Fi worked well and we had cell phone coverage but no satellite. I gave them a 9 instead of a 10 as there are a few areas in the park that could use some cleaning up. Otherwise a terrific place to stay for a couple of days with a large Fred Meyer grocery and some really good restaurants a few miles away. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a typical Alaska RV park with sites very close together and 30 amp electric. We did not find the owner to be that friendly. We did not use the laundry or bathhouse so cannot comment on price/condition. Verizon cell/MiFi worked adequately. Good Sam discount was available. Nothing really wrong with this campground but nothing great either. We would look for someplace else to stay if we we're in the area again. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an open gravel/grass lot (which means not pretty but fewer mosquitoes). Mountain view from the entrance only, sites face the permanents or the woods. Owner lets you pick your spot. Most go to the pull-throughs in the center, but we think the back-in spots right across from the office are nicer. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great RV park. We have a 40 rig with a long-bed truck. We fit in the pull-through site nicely. The view of the mountain is awesome. The folks that run the park try very hard to make sure your stay is great. They are available all the time to help you plan an adventure or recommend sightseeing and activities. We even extended our stay because we felt right at home with the owners of this park. Close to town - owners on site - safe and convenient. You can not go wrong at this park.

We chose this RV park based on other reviews, and they are right on. This is a very nice park, with gorgeous mountain views. There are no trees in the park, just gravel and grass, but the park is well maintained. The staff are extremely friendly, and it's next to a wooded area (that does not belong to the park) so it has a lovely rural feel. There's a Fred Meyer 5 minutes away; very handy for shopping or if you need fuel. The sites are not very level, primarily because the land the park is on slopes, so be sure you have boards or blocks to put under your jacks and/or wheels - you'll need them. We stayed 3 nights here and drove into Anchorage (about 40 miles away) to the museums and other local attractions. Anchorage apparently has no decent RV parks, so driving from Palmer was preferable for us. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park, small lots. Wouldn't have been able to put awning out if we wanted to. Plenty good enough for a few day stay. Mountains all around, but we couldn't see them from where are RV was parked. AT&T air card worked from here for Internet. We parked here in a 38' 5th wheel, with 4 slides. It's better than most parks in Alaska. We'd stay here again.

Park is nestled between two mountains making for some nice views. Not able to get satellite because of mountains. One of the full timers said you might get it on a clear day. No cable. Goats are being raised on the adjacent property. They come up to the fence to eat the grass. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is a bit unusual for Alaska with grassy sites served by gravel drives. The sites are pretty level, but they are rather densely packed leaving just enough width for our RV with slides on both sides. There are lovely views of mountains all around! Water, sewer and electric hookups were conveniently placed and worked well. The WiFi was strong, though the Internet connection behind it was slow as usual. The bathrooms/showers are large with lots of hooks, and were cleaned and lovely mid-day, but by midnight they were rather messy, probably owing to a couple of large groups of tent campers. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park has great views and a mountain hike just up the road from the park. There was a moose calf kill by a bear on the trail when we were here. It was removed but grizzlies always come back to their kills so we stayed off this trail. The showers are ok but you get a lot of hot and cold water if others are using the facilities also. There are 7 separate rooms with a toilet and shower in each, which is a nice touch. The owners smoke a lot so the smoke drifts from their garage attached to the showers which isn't good if you do not like to breathe others smoke. The sites are too close together as are all the campgrounds in Alaska and Canada that we have been to. The washers and dryers are a little old with $2 wash and $1.25 to dry. If you do not over fill the dryer it will dry with one cycle. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

There are two sections to the RV park. The part in front is a large grass field with two rows of back-in sites where the RV's are back-to-back. The hook-ups in this area are all along the line between the rows, meaning that for us, we needed an extra sewer hose section since the sewer connection was at the very rear. The second section in the rear of the park also has grass between the sites, but there are gravel roads between rows. We liked the open field because it meant fewer mosquitoes. The WiFi was good for us. The laundry facilities were very clean and they had 5 washing machines and 8 dryers. We would definitely stay here again.

This is the best RV park in the Anchorage, Wasilla, and Palmer area. Plenty of sun, great view, quiet residential setting, and no mosquitoes. Fred Meyers grocery and all services close by. Wide pull thru sites with decent Wi-Fi. Being Alaska, this park rates a 10 after staying in many others throughout the state. Stayed for 5 nights to resupply, rest, and repair then came back for another night on the way back to the lower 48. Will stay there again on our next trip.

The mountain view is spectacular. Sites are easy to get in to. Everyone seems organized. Spotty WiFi (but that seems to be the deal in all the AK parks we've been to). We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are easy to pull in and out of with plenty of room for all of our slide outs. The grass was a nice thing to see after a lot of the parks do not have it. The Wi-Fi worked well and the staff was very friendly and were accommodating, especially the hostess who spent quite a long time trying to find us someone who could fix our RV after it broke coming down the highway. The bathrooms were very clean and private. I will definitely stay here again my next trip to Alaska! We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed for wk @ $208. Owner lives on property and available anytime. Most grass we have had in 2 months. Our dog loved it. Wi-Fi was very strong and fast even when park was full with caravans. Has 6 shower/toilet rooms very clean. Laundry has 5 washers with 3 hi-capacity $2 each. 8 dryers @1.25. View of mountain is great. No mosquitoes. Shopping in Palmer & Wasilla. Anchorage is a bit far at 45 miles. This is great place to relax yet close to shopping. Made reservation 6 months ago but changed twice in last month and had no problems. Would stay here again if we get back to AK. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Family own and operated. Nice couple (owners) who live in the park. Kids are welcome and so is everyone else. Lots of easy pull through sites and class A fit right in. The cleanest bathrooms and laundry room I have ever seen in an RV Park. Quiet. Easy to find. Close enough to Fred Meyers and other vital services. Usually one of the first parks to open. Over the past three years I have spent more than 40 days there. Caravans welcome. Strong Wi-Fi. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
