Great place in a heavy tourist town. CG is right behind the Alaska RR Depot, but few trains so noise is minimal and mostly the daylight passenger trains. Sites level and good access. Really BIG rigs might find it tight, but we loved it. Nice free clean showers. Close to town. Close together, but not as crazy as most of the Alaska private parks. Our site was close to the dump station, and as mentioned, it is highly entertaining. Seems to have a lot of rental RV's and folks who don't have a clue. Truly a 'circus'. Would definitely stay again, we were here 2 days. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Travel Trailer.

We liked this campground. Showers were private and had very hot water. You had to pay but it was worth it. This is a great campground. Cannot tell you about WiFi since we did not use. Would definitely stay here again if in Alaska. Loved it in Talkeetna. Site was level. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Walk to downtown Talkeetna. Less than a mile walk. Loved it. Also train ride was worth it.

It was hot while we were there so the power was only 114 volts. Not that good for a 50 amp hookup. Water OK. There are really only 4 hookups with sewer, so call ahead. The people working there are very nice and helpful. You are in pretty close and depending on where you are at there are trees quite close. No cable TB. Wi-Fi was fair at best. Only place in town. No picnic tables. Roads and lots are gravel. Pretty level sites. If in the area again I'll skip this one. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful owners, great location, easy walk to town. Yes, sites are close together. Yes the sites are gravel! Get over it! It's Alaska not Ohio. Go with the flow or go home. Enjoy the wonderful people, the beautiful scenery, the wildlife. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Use the second entry from the hy way or it is very tight. After you check in swing wide on the left turns around the building. 5th wheel hit their corner marking pole, pulled it out of the ground and made a mess of his 5th wheel. Really nice owners, clean park, clean showers and laundry. We had water, 30 amp, no sewer. They put us in the spot directly behind the dump station, easy access for a 42 ft hooked up to a Jeep. Also very good view of the circus as new rvers in rentals tried to figure out how to dump! Would certainly stay here again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Best time in Talkeetna is later during the weekday after the busses are gone. Used the 2 for 1 coupon from Alaska Tour Savers to take the 6 pm jet boat ride from Mahay jet boats. Great ride. Road house restaurant has large portions, and was pretty good; to our surprise because most of the Alaska eats we have read in blogs were way over hyped in our opinion.

Talkeetna Brewery has very good beer, they can't brew it fast enough as they were out of several kinds of their beer.

If you want to stay close to town, this is the place. Very tight driving and getting into sites, Sites fairly level. Verizon wifi/Sprint phone Ok. Price reflects W/E only, there is a dump available. Small area to walk the pup. The 4 restrooms are the combined type, shower, sink, toilet in the same room. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very quaint town, few shops and restaurants. We like the Roadhouse for breakfast. This is the launching point the Mt. McKinley Climbers. Also a good spot to grab a plane to tour the Mountains and Glacier landing. Grocery store at the main Intersection when you turn to the town.

I have to give this place lower marks for deceptive advertising. They claim they are a full service park, but not sure what they mean by that. They are really no sewer sites(they have 4 sites) and they are the worst spots and usually taken don't expect to get one. They have no cable TV not a big deal but again what is "full service". Some slots are laid out a bit strange and make for some interesting maneuvering. The good points is the setting is nice, there are some trees, and you are really close to town for walking or biking (we never took our car the 5 days we stayed). Also, if you take the Alaska Hurricane Turn train (a must do!) you just walk out of your RV and on to the train platform. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly staff. Staff was able to suggest and secure several tours including; train, plane, and jet boats. Sites are a little tight. Lots of trees. I'd go out of my way to stay here again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The park is really your only option in Talkeetna with hookups, but it is wedged in between the railroad tracks ( not many trains though and those that pass are the beautiful Alaska railroad cars) and the highway. It is also very close to the local airport so you get car, train, and aircraft noise. The spaces are close to each other. The park is close walking distance to the fun tourist town activities and shops. Despite the proximity issues, everyone was friendly, especially one, who went out of her way to ensure we were happy with our stay here. The restrooms and showers were very clean. Overall, our stay was nice for an overnight stop. We would stay here again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

This is the only true RV park in Talkeetna and it fills up fast during 'the season'. The managers are very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The price given is for electric and water only. The showers are expensive ($4) but that price is for a complete private bathroom so you and spouse can shower together. The park is next to the RR tracks, but the last regularly scheduled train is at 5 PM, so the noise is not a sleeping problem. There is a good restaurant next door. The park is within an easy walk to all the attractions of Talkeetna including shopping. River trips and the airport for flight seeing. Great place to visit - we would stay here again if we make the drive to Alaska again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Nice shade trees make this gravel campground much more pleasant, and it is located a short walk from "downtown". The sites are level, if a bit on the small side. Electric and water hookups were convenient, but our site did not have sewer. WiFi was strong. The bathrooms were clean and spacious, but showers cost extra. There are laundry facilities here, but we didn't use them. The campground hosts were especially cheerful and helpful. A military discount helped bring the cost into a reasonable range. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Cozy park, trees, right by the train station, but quiet in spite of that. Walk to town. Spotty Wi-Fi. Friendly staff, well maintained. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

The positives: the management staff was outstanding! Friendly and helpful - they ordered a ride to the flight-seeing company for us, recommended eateries in Talkeetna, and were most pleasant to talk with (UK Nationals). Shower and restroom facilities were new, clean, neat, and well supplied; WiFi was fully functional; water pressure good, power stable (30A only); gravel sites reasonably level. The not-so-positives: yes, the rearmost row is <200' from the Alaska RR - half a dozen trains a day, and it wasn't at all noticeable to us (we were closest to the rail). We didn't experience the noise issues noted in a previous review. Don't know if any sites had sewer, but dump station was clean and properly equipped, even if it was just a little tight. And yes, you're nearly in your neighbor's lap, with regard to the slot-size, but our stay was quiet and relaxing (with the exception of the slaps and snaps of our mosquito zapper). We look at these short-term stays in cramped quarters as a welcome test of our abilities to stuff a 35x12' motor home into a 30x13' space. From our perspective, the only better place in town would be on the ramp at the airport, parked amongst the myriad glacier-landing airplanes. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

We spent one night here because we were taking a flight seeing trip over McKinley the next day. We did not have a reservation and got the last site available that would hold our 33' RV. The campground host was very friendly and worked with us to get us a place to stay. He even offered to let us park on the side of the campground the next day while we were flying, but it turned out to be easier to park over at the airport. The campground was clean, our site was level, and the hookups were all fine. There was a little noise from the airport and train station, but it didn't bother us. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

RV park has lots of trees and is next to a railroad station. This did not make any difference to us. There was enough room for our 40' motor home. The showers/bathroom were clean, but it is time for them to be upgraded. We did not use the bath/showers but they had pay showers. It is very close to town and within walking distance. We would stay here again, if in the area. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.
