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.

We had a great site and the park is right in town. We could walk to everything and hear and watch the trains. Good electric and water. Excellent Wi-Fi. But only 3 restrooms for whole park. Since they were private rooms and included the shower, the wait could be quite long. Showers leaked water onto floor so dirt on shoes made a mess. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is as bad as it gets. The surrounding area is as noisy as it gets & it never lets up 24 hours a day. We realized this shortly after arriving. We were stuck with the 1st night but were able to cancelled our 2nd night. The management didn't give us a hard time & refunded our money. The sites are tight & difficult for our 32' RV to get in & out of. But, what makes it bad was the busy train depot right next to the park. Cruse liners transport their passengers by train to this depot where waiting buses, with their diesel engines running constantly, transport their passengers to various locations in the state. It seemed never ending as one train after another, along with bus after bus, arrived. Nothing like being awoken at 2AM by an arriving train with its horn blowing & partying passengers! We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Clean facility and friendly staff. Easy walking distance to town. Stayed two nights, and would have stayed longer if itinerary allowed. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 3 nights., Its a very nice park with friendly owner and staff. The advertise full hookups but they only have 5 sites that are, or I would have given them a higher rating. If you like trains, the summer depot is behind the park and you can take the Hurricane up and back or pick up the train from Anchorage to Fairbanks with a stop in Denali. Also short walk to town and airport if you want a scenic ride. Would stay here again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Very good CG for short term camping. Relatively level and clean. Easy 1/2 mile walk to town due to very crowded parking in town. Owners very accommodating and helpful in meeting the needs of their guests. Stoned sites with easy in and out access. Family friendly. Systems in good working order and very accessible. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty area in a neat little town. The park is located next to the railroad depot, but the train didn't come through that often. We had a pull-through without sewer, Wi-Fi was very iffy. You can easily walk to town, eating at the Roadhouse is a must. The town does get crowded midday before the train picks up individuals who are on cruise tours. We would stay here again.

This was our second camping site in Alaska and our first wake-up to typical commercial "campgrounds" in AK: gravel parking lots. The setting for the park is lovely and is a lovely, short walk into Talkeetna, but NO care has been put into making the campsites attractive. The sites are jammed together (thankfully our driver of the 32 ft motorhome is a long experienced and skilled driver, or we would have had problems!). We would have loved to have an evening around a campfire, but there was no space and fires are not allowed. There was no fishing close by as some literature suggested. The have no internet. We found it disappointing. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Requested full hook ups when I made the reservation, but didn't get it. They only have five sites with sewer hookups, and they don't guarantee you'll get one when you reserve. I'm not sure how they decide who gets one, but the sites with sewer connections look to me like smaller sites. Everything is pretty cramped, but fairly quiet. Wi-Fi works, but no TV. RR station is right behind the park and the trains, while infrequent, can come through any time of the day or night. Around midnight seems to be a regular run. Not much else to choose from in Talkeetna; but then there's not a whole lot of reasons to come to Talkeetna in the first place. Doubt I'll be back. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.
