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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

This is the only full-service campground in town and is located within walking distance. Sites were level, longer sites cost more. Free Wi-Fi. We camped at Talkeetna Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.
