We had planned to stay at this campground while visiting the Wasilla area, but when we drove through we decided to move on. The campground was not well kept with grass and weeds in the sites. There is a campground host, but his site was extremely trashed. Our rig is not that new or nice but it would definitely have been the best in the park. There were people loitering around and dogs, including a pit bull, off leash. We have stayed at some “iffy” spots but would not have felt comfortable staying here or leaving the RV here while visiting the area. - TheJim

This is a Borough (county) park, the campground roads are good gravel. The sites are rock, most are fairly level. The bathrooms are pit toilets with no running water. There is a city water spigot at entrance to campground. Campground is next to Lake Lucille. There are a few pull-through sites. Some sites are 60 feet deep but are back in. Quiet campground with plenty of trees. There are picnic tables and campfire rings at most of the sites. We would camp here again. Good trail system in the park. - planegm

This Campground is more for tents and smaller RV's but you can camp here with a 40 ft. but limited space in other words if you don't come in on a Monday or Tuesday you could have trouble. Campground Host was very friendly and helpful one of the reasons we got parked with a big rig like we did. Pit toilets and tanked in water which i will not put in my water tank. This is a high used local park and they drive like Heck through the campground and out of it as far as that goes. Even through this was a pretty park i would probably opt not to stay here next time and use the Matanuska River Park in the Mat-Su Borough located 1 mile from Palmer @milepost J17.4 Old Glenn Highway. - monaco cruiser

This is the nicest RV park we found in the Anchorage area. It has generous spaces with lawn in between, clean and roomy restrooms and showers. There's room to walk nearby. We felt the $29-30 price was very fair. Staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. We liked it so much we came back for a second night later in our trip. - M H Osborn

Park is OK. Navigation is easy. We had a 'super site' which is what you need if you want a long enough site to park the tow vehicle. There is a playground for kids, but they are rabid about having adult supervision--so, what is the point of having the park exactly? They are also a bit nutty about rugs on the grass--wouldn't even allow a small 'welcome' mat (to wipe our feet). Seriously?

We pulled in late. Office made it easy to register and find a spot after hours. Staff was friendly and by far the showers were the cleanest we have seen this week. Sites were spacious and easy to get into. - Giggling guest

Everyone should experience a campground like this- at least once. The road in and around the park is POT HOLE CITY. The speed limit is posted as 5mph, but if you go over 2 mph you'll totally bounce everything out of it's place in your RV. They do have over 100 sites. All sites are on a huge cleared gravel field and are spaced 12' apart. All have 50A power, water and sewer. There are about 25 long term renters along the east side. These renters give real meaning to the phrase "TRAILER TRASH". Along the outside row on the west there is parked an assortment of 5 junk motorhomes, 6 junk trailers, and about 16 junk cars. Plus one 18 wheeler and one junk school bus. More sites are filled with junk that are rented. All traveling RVs are in the center row on (almost) level gravel. The sites are bare gravel (some weeds) and have no area for any tables or fire pits. The park is quiet and a cheaper place to stay if you want hook ups with junkyard views. We have a 5th wheel parked next to us that is only 6 feet away. Forget trying to open your awning. There were 7 over night campers here last night, so your chances of getting a drive in space are excellent. Good for just a short stay. - SuperRep

We didn't end up staying here as it looked shady. Claimed showers but we didn't see any or restrooms. Looked more like an unkept RV storage. - Giggling guest

We could not see any pull-thru sites, unless you count pulling thru a standard site.
Internal roads are very rough. They could use some grading. Many long term sites that were very cluttered. Junk, spare parts, vehicles in several sites. - Larryvt

This was the filthiest park we have ever been in. Mostly full-time residents in derelict RVs. Out of 16 sites, only 2 were available. Sewer did not drain properly. Only positive was the large laundry facility. If we didn't need to do laundry, we would not have stayed. Their (old) ad on the Alaska Campground Owners Assn website indicates they're making improvements, but we saw none. We would not camp here again, nor would we recommend it to anyone. - JCMDT

Very disappointed in this park for the high price. The setting is pleasant, nicely wooded, but spaces are very tight. There is one toilet and one tiny though clean shower for the whole place. Check-in was fine, but no help available in the morning as the office didn't open till 1 p.m. Very pleasant to walk around and look down at the lake. Very difficult to enter and exit near a curve on the busy Glenn Highway. We wish we had driven the few miles back to Big Bear Campground on the Parks Highway--much better for much more reasonable price. - M H Osborn

We stayed 3 days while we visited Palmer, the Independence Mine, Etlukna and Thunderbird Falls. The park was pretty basic. There were pull-thrus and back-ins. Some pull-thrus might not have had a sewer. The hook-ups were fine, the site was relatively level, we had a picnic table. It was shady and it was convenient to all that we wanted to do in the area. It was a mix of monthlies and transients. Most of the sites were pretty close. - swike

We pulled into the CG but the site were not ready for us. They offered another site but we did not see it was suitable.
We looked at the sites we were offered were very tight. The seasonal sites were cluttered and looked like a dump so we left. - Larryvt

This park is 90% full with long term residents, who appear to have been there for awhile. There are maybe 3 sites that would be available to rent. Not for a big rig. We did not end up staying at the park but did meet a tenant who was very nice to us and said we would probably be happier on the other side of town. It is located out of town and the location is not the best. - mga60tw

This is basically a nice park. Unfortunately there are some really seedy looking semi permanent trailers in the middle of the park. The owner manager works days, so it is self check in. We picked a lot on the end, one of the back ins, but there were several drive throughs available. The park was clean and quiet, somewhat shielded from the highway noise. We were a bit nervous staying here at first, but now I would definitely stay here again. It is not really a family park but a lay over place until the next spot. We stayed here 2 nights. - Jerry 2

This RV park is permanently closed due to road construction going thru it. - tcreek

This is an adequate campground located just outside Palmer near the fairgrounds. The entrance is a bit of a mess with big rocks and pot holes. We had a 50 amp pull thru with FHUs. Site was narrow and close to neighbors. Some long term residents were there but sites were not messy. Verizon cell and mifi worked well. We did not use the laundry or bathhouse so cannot comment on price or condition. Manager was friendly but not on site parts of the day. Anchorage is an easy drive and Palmer provides an alternative to the over priced, cramped campgrounds in Anchorage. We would stay here again. - roadking

This is a small park about 45 miles from Anchorage. Sites are long enough we could park our tow behind. Site was level, WiFi good and water pressure was good. We would stay here again. - Grammy8

Unlike the other designated camping areas along the Hatcher Pass Road, this is just a parking lot and that's why the rate is only 5$ instead of 15$ like the other places. Right off the Hatcher Pass Road at mile 16 it's an open level and paved parking lot, where you just find your place to park for the night. No amenities except a pit toilet. You can find a threaded water spigot (potable water) at the Gold Mint Trailhead two miles down the road.
Traffic on the road dies down after 8 pm. Then it's absolutely quiet and you can really enjoy the sweeping views around and down the valley towards Palmer. Lots of hiking trails in the area and apparently good berry picking too. We saw many people with full containers returning to their vehicles. - TheSchweitzers

This is our favorite park in the Palmer/Wasilla area. In fact this one and the highly rated RV park in Haines are our two favorites in Alaska. - Norske

We stayed in the upper campground for larger vehicles. Very nice grass sites. Power only. Water and dump stations included in the fee, as well as showers, if you wished.
Very nice manager. Comfort station is older, but spotless. Grounds are beautiful. It's a county park, not state.
Further down the hill are smaller sites restricted to 30 ft and under. No services, but $15. Still get to use the fresh water, dump, and shower for $15, which is a bargain in this area.
We enjoyed our stay. - Sherr

This park continues to be excellent for what it provides. Lacking sewer and water knocks it down two notches. Otherwise it is a 10 for NICE manicured grassy spots. Beautiful landscaping. Pick your own Rhubarb, Raspberries, etc. Nice new tables. No fire rings but can go to the adjacent park and have one. Nice park for the kiddies. Restrooms were clean but need new paint on the floor to tidy it up. - easydoesit
