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. We camped at Renfro's Lakeside Retreat in a Motorhome.

The trip to Seward is a scenic 20 minute drive. Shopping and tourist activities are in Seward. While there, be sure to take the glacier tour boat trip.

The camp site is private and spacious, but the dump is a little far away from the water and electricity hookup, which makes it difficult to have a full hookup if you don't have extra long water hose or long waste dump. There was no wireless signal, and wifi was close to nothing (30 minutes to download a 3MB file). This might be perfect for folks looking for complete "cut-off", but if you need to make some calls, you need to drive 5~7 miles down to Seward to get any signal. There is only one bath and one washing machine and dryer. It would a long wait for shower and laundry. Also be aware of 2-week cancellation policy. The people there are friendly and fun to talk with. We camped at Renfro's Lakeside Retreat in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Renfro's Lakeside Retreat in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Renfro's Lakeside Retreat in a Travel Trailer.
