One night. Close to everything ... but then, Talkeetna is a VERY small town. Convenient to RR, only a few trains, so not a noise factor. Spaces were designed for small Class C RV's. We only pull an 18' TT and had to disconnect. Only the trailer fit the spot. Very busy, reservations HIGHLY recommended. Would stay again, as we did last year. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Travel Trailer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this park. It is convenient to everything we needed - the train depot, the quaint downtown area attractions, etc. The showers were excellent - private bathrooms with toilet, sink and shower in a clean and spacious room. Laundry facilities were small but adequate. Hookups including wifi all worked great. Sites were close but had nice landscaping inbetween, plus the closeness felt cozy due to the setting rather than intrusive. No picnic table or fire ring at the site. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stay as long as you can - we stayed 3 nights and wish we had planned for more! Ride the Hurricane Turn train - a great experience! Ride your bikes into town and have a treat! Mile High Pizza Pie is a great place to eat.

We are here for 4 nights. We are one of 5 sites with sewer connections and 50 amp services and 1 of 2 sites that can fit a 43 foot motor home. We are in site 2. We made our reservations 5 months ago. Here now June 10th the park is full every night! The park was designed for 30 foot class C RVs or trailers, of which there are many. The sites are very close together, lots of trees, so do not expect much room. There are no fire rings or picnic tables. The bath rooms are clean and there is a fire pit for all to use. There are 2 washers and dryers. The host campers are very nice. The park is located right at the train depot, in fact it is walking distance out the back of the park. The front of the park is close to the street so the park is not a quite park. There is tons to do here. Walking, bike rentals, National Park Service building, a small museum, plane rides, boat rides, ATV rides, train rides. The town is only a 10 minute walk and is a bustling place with lots of gift shops and restaurants and pubs, ice cream, liquor store, and a marijuana shop also. This is a result of the cruise ships bringing folks by the hundreds and hundreds every day by way of buses and the trains. On Friday nights at 5 PM they have a concert in the town square. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

When we came in, we had only planned on one day. When we wanted to stay another day, the host was very accommodating, letting us stay in a pull through area near the shower house. This park is next to the Alaska Railroad, but it only runs during the day - sightseeing. It's within walking distance to downtown Talkeetna. We would recommend this spot just because of the location. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pretty clean facilities. We arrived late so the office was closed already but the instructions on the door were clear and we had a quiet night after a long day of driving. Campground is pretty and sites are surrounded by trees so even though you are very close to Talkeetna, you can enjoy nature. Talkeetna is a cute little town where you can spend about an hour. Parking in town is hard so the best thing to go over there is by foot. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Nice park in Talkeetna. Spots can be tight, depending on where you park. Hosts were great. Bathrooms clean. Pay for showers but they are nice. 1/2 mile walk to downtown but plenty of run to walk on the bike trails. Noise from the railroad is minimal. We'll be back. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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 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.
