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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
