The campsite is right by the cruise ship docks and a block from downtown....registration was quick, but very impersonable..."Name...$40.00...your site is #". The washrooms and showers (coin operated) are absolutely filthy...the floors look like they haven't been swept or washed in weeks.....and NO internet...just a handout for "hotspot"locations....definitely not. Wort $40 US...we are from Yukon and will not recommend this campground to anyone! We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We read the reviews from previous campers and were hesitant about making reservations here. We had called the other campground in the area but they were full. So we decided to stay here. We are happy we did. The grounds were clean and bushes trimmed. The sites were spacious and very well maintained. They have a dump station and water & elec (30&50 amp). We went by the other campground listed in the area, and their sites were closer together and didn't look as spacious. Someone had posted the people coming off the cruise ships walk through the sites to get to town. This no longer happens since they have installed fencing. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We stayed in site 20. This park is about a block away from town which made it very accessible to shop. If we ever came back we would choose this park over the others listed even though no sewer hookups available. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 2 nights so we could shop. This is right in town near the dock area and there are lots of people from the cruise ships. Nice site, somewhat noisy from White Pass train. Nice tent area in center. Cooperative attendant. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

The location is the best thing about this place. At the waterfront and near public parking and the ferry dock. The problem of cruise ship passengers cutting through has been addressed with fencing; and we didn't see anyone cut through. However, there is no reason for the poor upkeep. Nothing is mowed or kept up outside. The restrooms are tolerable but obviously unmaintained; dirty and full trash bins. Showers are pay. We had adequate power and water at our site. The manager was nice enough. Plenty of free public parking down by the waterfront. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Park was OK. It is near to shops, and near to the harbor. But there is NO Wifi (not free and not for money). I feel fooled because when we asked about the internet, he answered that free internet access is only in Skagway's library. There were dirty washrooms, and dirty toilets, (lots of spiders inside). It cost $1.25 to get 3 minutes of cold and then the last 2 minutes of hot water. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Imagine 4 cruise ships with 12,000+ passengers descending on a small town like Skagway and everyone of the passengers walking by your RV site to get from the ship to the shops. That's what you get on days that ships dock in Skagway. On the other hand, imagine a ghost town when no cruise ships are docked. That's what you also get. I would strongly suggest arranging your stay to coincide with days that have no cruise ships in port. This allows restaurants that aren't overcrowded; shops that have ample viewing space; and tourist facilities that don't require hours of waiting. The Pullen Creek RV CG is located only 2 blocks from town--the other CGs are 1/2 to a mile away. It is more convenient than the others; however it's proximity to the waterfront means having to use the sewer dump adjacent to the office--there are no individual dumps. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Metered Wi-Fi, expensive, and lousy. It is best to go to Library for it. The price is high for public park; especially, without sewer hookups. Close to harbor and cruise ships, but the view blocked by overgrown bushes. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were parked on the bay side parking lot. Had 30 amps and water. Had a awesome view of the fjords. Watched 4 cruise ships come and go daily. Very busy area and touristy. But that being said - we totally enjoyed the views and the activities in Skagway. We thought it was the best in town. Would stay again. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pick a harbor side lot. We had great views of the harbor and cruise ships coming and leaving Skagway with a mountain background. Sites have no sewer, 30 amp service with water. There is a dump station at the park. We were allowed to wash our rig and toad at our site. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very noisy as trains travel on both sides of park and cruise ships dock just a couple of blocks away. Advantage is that this park is close to ferry terminal and 1 block from historic downtown. Sites were adequate for our vehicle but tight for anything longer. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Truck Camper.

The location of this campground is quite charming if you know what you are getting into! It is packed onto a small peninsula between the cruise ship docks and the village of Skagway. While the cruise ships are in, there is foot traffic everywhere, so ample opportunity for people watching. There are many sites packed into a small space, yet it didn't quite feel as impersonal as many private campgrounds. Some sites had makeshift type picnic tables, but ours didn't, so be sure to travel with a table! The location is very convenient, as you can easily walk to Skagway and the train station. Our biggest disappointment with this campground was the lack of restroom facilities for the number of people camping here. We camped mid-week (with a reservation) and the campground was packed. We gave up trying to take a shower as there were so many people waiting; as a result of the high use, the facility always seemed quite untidy. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The only park you should stay at in Skagway. If you are over 37 foot, choose the "harbor" sites. They are outside the park right at the Lynn Canal Boat Harbor where the ships dock. Very quick walk into town. We had a great time. At evening time get your neighbors, chairs, and a glass of ???. Meet at the "bon voyage" rock and wave bye bye to the cruise ships. Only staff person was was very nice. Restrooms were clean, but we don't understand the pay showers, so we we took long showers in our bus. Same water, right?? Would return again.

I don't understand the low reviews this park has gotten. I saw no issues with the sites or the surroundings. The trees and greenery are bigger than in most places we have stayed in Alaska. We are not on the water but I can see the boats in the marina from my front window. It is a short walk to the dock where the cruise ships pull in and the trains load and unload. The downtown is also a short walk and the whole town is set up for tourism. The downsides of the park for me were the lack TV or cable, and no sewer at the sites. The owner is working on getting WiFi but the local providers are making it very expensive for him to afford. Our Verizon air card worked well here though. We could not get satellite due to the huge mountain next to the campground, but it is nice to look at. There are parks and green spaces nearby to walk pets, and several places in town supply pet waste bags for the general population. Our site was a decent size allowing us to sit outside and even had room to work out. I would stay here again. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has lots of potential, but it needs some work to be done. There was no view of the water. The restrooms were clean. There was enough space around the sites. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were totally disappointed in the state of this campground as it had knee high grass everywhere, was very untidy and looked as though no one had done a days work outside for months. The "beautiful views of the water" were non-existent. We have been staying in campgrounds right through the US and Canada for 18 months and this is by far the worst we have been in. We had booked ahead from the directory and website so unfortunately has to stay but would have chosen Garden City had we looked at them first. The proximity to town was the only plus about it. We would definitely not stay again. We camped at Pullen Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
