Very clean campground, the hosts are very down to earth and friendly. Within easy walking distance of the downtown area, trains and airport. Yes it is near the tracks but it was not a problem like some of the earlier posts claim. Trains do not come around that often, a little more on the weekends but still not a big deal. We RV'ed in Alaska for about two weeks and this place was one of my favorites if you are looking for convenience, neatness and a friendly staff We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here two nights. Our site had plenty of room, but others looked tight. Owners are very accommodating. Train depot is right behind RV park, but we only heard the train twice our first night and none the second night. 15-20 minute walk to town. I would stay here again.

This nice, small campground is located very close to the Talkeetna airport and Talkeetna Air Taxi. Unfortunately, it is also very close to the train tracks and a railroad crossing, and trains run all hours of the day and night with loud whistles. Our pull-through space was easy to get in and out, and we were located close enough to the office to have a great Wi-Fi connection. The nightly rate is reasonable, but you must also pay $3 for a seven-minute shower, which can get pricey quickly. Unfortunately, if you want to get a shower, you must also purchase tokens when you check in. We camped here at the end of the season, and the staff was not always present in the office, so they were not always available to purchase shower tokens or to handle questions at check-in. There were only two washers and two dryers, since it is a small park, but they were very nice and in great repair. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Travel Trailer.

There are only 5 sites in this park that have sewer but there is a dump station. We'd made our reservation more than 6 months before arriving and did get a site with sewer but they will not guarantee that you will get one even by reserving early. On one side of us there was only about 5 feet between us and the next RV and on the other there were some trees but not much more room with slides out. It was easy to get in and out of the site with our 33 foot 5th wheel. WiFi worked well at our site. The main negative about this park is its location just feet from the Talkeetna Spur Highway on one side the the Alaska Railroad on the other side. While we were there we heard 4 trains during the day and the earliest one was at 5:30 am. The highway has very little traffic on it during the late evening and night. The small town, which was crowded with tourists and has limited parking, is about a half a mile walk and consists mainly of shops and places to eat. We would stay here again if we wanted to fish with Mahay's or take one of their Jet boat trips. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a great little campground very close to Talkeetna - definitely within walking distance for many people - and also within walking distance to the Talkeetna Air Taxi service if you choose to use them for a tour of Mt. McKinley. We had a site that backed up to the railroad tracks but didn't find that to be a distraction at all - there are only a couple of trains a day. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

This is an OK campground. We stayed there in a 5th wheel for two nights. The Talkeetna train station is right behind the campground and it was noisy when the trains arrived and departed. Plus the freight trains during the night hours. The sites are rock based. The pull through were large but there weren't many of them. We had a 34 foot RV. It was close to the down town area so we could walk there and back less than a 1/2 mile each way. In my opinion there wasn't much in the town and I probably wouldn't stop there again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff. Clean & Private showers ($3/7min). Rear of campground accesses Alaska railroad line and is short walk (100 yds) to depot. Some noise from 4-wheelers as this is a popular area for their use. Train noise was not too bad, but train whistle is used as freight trains pass. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Small park near interesting small town, 14 miles off the main road. In pull through site with full hookups right in entrance. Sites with water and electric only available inside park with more ambiance.They have Wi-Fi. Friendly and helpful staff. We would return here. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was a pull through, and the staff worked with us when we were too long for the site first assigned to us. The rest of the sites looked really tight and at all different angles. It was really tight when we were leaving. We did see a black bear near by while we were walking our dog. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our stay at this park. The people who work here were friendly and helpful. They do put a number of campers in a small space, but no worse than any other campground in Alaska. The campground is in walking distance of town. They have only a few full hook-ups, but provide a portable grey water tank if you need to dump, so you do not have to unhook to do so. We found that very convenient. We would stay here again. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overall this is a good place to stay while in Talkeetna. The bad part is the fact that many sites are very close together, parked at odd angles. However, the office people are nice, and the park is within walking distance of town right next to the train station. It is cool to see the train let off and load-up cruise ship passengers. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice cozy park in the woods close to downtown Talkeetna. While we had to pay extra for showers ($3 for one 7-minute token), the park was very reasonably priced and had very clean and well-maintained amenities. The Alaskan railroad runs close to the park, but trains were infrequent and did not run at inconvenient hours (e.g., 4 a.m.) while we were there. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.

I thought the location was handy. Staff was nice, but never have I had so many people cut through my site as I did here. Sites are tight and at all sort of angles so as to get as many RVs in as possible. Looks new and is probably the only big rig place in town. There was a lot of activity going on. Train station is behind with tour buses. It was quiet at night. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Motorhome.
