We stayed her for 6 days and enjoyed visiting Valdez. This park is basically a gravel parking lot but is well maintained, has flowers about and is very clean. They will escort you to your site and help direct you in. The owner lives right here so is attentive to the park. The sites are level and the hook-ups are easy to use but the sites are very close. The campground is within walking distance to the small boat harbor, the Safeway for shopping, the 2 museums in town and just about everything else. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We ate breakfast at Old town Burgers and had heaping portions. The two museums in town are very good. The helicopter flights over town and the glaciers with VS are very good.

Basically a gravel parking lot with full hookups. The folks are very helpful. Not only do they have full hookups, but also provide cable and propane.

We were here for three nights after we had been boondocking at Allison Park. I'd stay here again. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clean-clean-clean. Level site - needed only lower the jacks. 20/30/50A. Water was best seen after 5 weeks on the road. Sewer at each site. Cable TV at each site. WiFi good signal - and actually had usable up-link bandwidth. Close to town - walking distance to grocery and restaurants. "Licensed" to feed eagles - what a show! These folks have built a VERY nice facility over the past few years (after purchasing a less-than-reputable business). Stop in and see Nancy or Nancy. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Three museums in town - all worth the look. Eagle-feeding at this RV park likely soon over for season (ending mid-June) due to salmon beginning to run. Watched 18 adults and 7 juveniles one evening.

Not exactly sure of price since we were part of a prepaid caravan. Gravel lot and packed in like sardines - side by side and back to back. Walking distance to most everything in town and excellent wi-fi and cheap ice. CONS: very cramped, gravel, park packed with weekenders and fishing derby people - noisy, laundry $3 wash and $3 dry. We would look for something nicer if we were coming back. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are extremely close with awnings and back ends nearly touching. Unhitching is a must? I don't know where the "bayside" comes from, but there was a marshy area adjacent to the park, but the bay was some ways away. Very nice staff and the place was well run and quiet after 10. Sites are gravel and level. We enjoyed being so close to the harbor and the town, so could walk everywhere. Every other park in town had cramped sites, so there really isn't another choice. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed visiting the harbor and the public fish cleaning area where we watched "master" men who cleaned and filleted everyone's catch. Also enjoyed the 1968 Earthquake Museum, the wonderful Whitney Museum, Valdez Glacier Lake, the Solomon Creek Forest Service Visitor center and the Fish Hatchery where the salmon were returning.

We picked this park because it is right downtown. We do not have a car so we wanted to be able to walk to town. It is a large gravel parking lot and units are crammed in very close. But this is norm in Alaska. The people are very helpful and you can book charters and tours at the office. It is within walking distance of Safeway and has beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and waterfalls. Showers are clean and free. There is very little grass and that is hard on the dog. They have a big communal campfire every night. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We've been traveling in Alaska for the month of July and this is the best park we've visited. Good power, water, wifi worked well, and there are 41 channels of cable that all worked well. Our site was facing the bay and the view was very nice. They also allow you to wash your coach or car at no extra cost. The park is well withing walking distance to down town and the boat docks. Sites are fairly close together but the park is very quiet and well managed. We would stay here again. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Bayside RV park for two weeks. The park is nice and big. There's no shade and it's essentially a large, gravel parking lot. The staff was friendly and helpful and kept everything clean and well cared for. The views of the mountains and bay are all amazing, complete with several waterfalls. We enjoyed our stay here and would revisit. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Be sure to check out the Worthington Glacier that's about 30 miles up the road. Fishing over near the hatchery is also fun.

Good park. We were on the bay side so got to look out at the bay and mountains. Great water pressure and good electric. WiFi was good and good cable. Gravel roads. You are pretty close together but place is quite. They let you wash your car and Rv also which was nice. Cost was free. Nicest bathrooms and showers I've seen. Just a nice park. Would stay again. People working here are nice and helpful. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stay two nights in this park. The site are quite close to each other, but it is still convenient since all the park staff maintain regulation and make sure no customer breaking any rules. We choose the site that facing the bay for 10 dollar more but it is worthy. The staff are very professional we got help during set up, they make sure the full hookup work as well as the cable channel. They have a very nice fire pit. Shower, toilet and laundry rooms are also nice and well maintained. Valdez is such a beautiful town. We did the Prince William cruise to Colombia glacier and it is very nice. The glacier are big and wild life are plenty. We saw about 6 whales during the trip. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

After a very long and rainy day driving to Valdez, I was checked into the Bayside RV Park by a smiling young woman who made me feel like a welcome and valuable customer. It made me realize how much my perception of a park can be affected by the check-in process. Yes, it's a gravel parking lot with close sites but it's right on the bay with mountains all around and conveniently in town. I would definitely stay here again.

We pulled in without any reservations before the summer rush. We were able to get a full hookup site in the best view row facing the bay. We liked this over the others in the town (one is right across the street) because of the view. It is within walking and biking distance to restaurants and the harbor. Leveling took a little work but we managed. The owner fed the bald eagles around 5:30 and it was quite a show! We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

The reason for scoring a 5 is they are packing people in like sardines. Fishermen have their boats and gear, some folks have tents set up on their already small sites along with the RV. You have to be careful not to get pinned in when you go to leave. Rest rooms and showers are clean WiFi is OK. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed in three different campgrounds in Valdez and I like this one the best. It is under new ownership and the office people were very friendly and informative. I was especially impressed with the cleanliness of the restrooms/showers. Throughout the day, they were cleaned and there was no time that I found them lacking. This was even more impressive when you take into consideration the number of people who were staying there. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
