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 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.

Tips for other Campers:

Within walking distance of town, restaurants; bank, grocery store. Can take boat tour or explore hiking trails.

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.

What a pleasant surprise. This a fairly small and well maintained park that is under new ownership. Cleanliness of showers and restrooms are head and shoulders above average. Washers and dryers in good condition and work well. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV reception. Owners and staff very friendly and helpful. Awesome views of surrounding mountains. One of the nicer parks we've stayed in during our most recent trip through Canada and Alaska. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Level sites, Wi-Fi and cable worked well. Sites and interior roads are gravel. Culvert at the exit that you must drive over rocks your coach back and forth. Right next to the docks for easy access. Lots of fishing activity with freezers covered in blue tarps next to coaches. Had people camping in cars next to us. Beautiful views. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

The sites here are way too close together. The sites are back to back and side to side, not really pull-thru's unless the site behind you has no one in it. You have to unhook your toad before going to any site. Quiet time starts at ten PM but because the sites are so close together if someone is setting outside and just talking normally it sounds like they are in your rig! There was someone with a quad that was very noisy and did not really care if it was midnight. One of our neighbors had their outdoor rug and chairs and awning hanging things on our side of the site boundaries. I had to walk on their rug to get to my services. I reported this to the office but nothing was done. The neighbors had two dogs that barked all the time also. The Wi-Fi was very slow most of the time probably due to the number of people using it. We would stay at another park if visiting Valdez again. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

This big, flat, gravel parking lot provided well organized, level sites with conveniently placed electricity, water and sewer hookups. Wi-FI was free and worked reasonably well. The bathrooms were spacious and sparkling clean. The mountain view across the bay was lovely, and we saw a bear through our window. The staff fed the eagles our first day there, which was a special treat. We enjoyed meeting friendly people here, staff and campers alike. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is a gravel lot as most of the RV Parks in Alaska, the people are nice, friendly and helpful with places to visit in the city. We had the extreme pleasure of seeing Bald Eagles in the park while we were there. They are fairly roomy sites with plenty of room for a large trailer and the tow vehicle, easy to pull into also. It is on the edge of town, but in close proximity to the small boat harbor and downtown. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our second trip to Valdez. On our previous trip we stayed at another larger RV park; however, we have found Bayside to be a terrific park as we look right out our front windshield across a tidal bay to mountains filled with glaciers. To respond to a previous review, yes, the sites are close together, but no more so than any other RV park in the area. We did not use the park's WIFI as we use our own Verizon MIFI card. With the extended roaming network we had very good reception. The staff is terrific. We would definitely chose this RV park on another visit. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good park for Alaska. We had a site that looked out over the bay. Nice front view, but given how close they pack units in spaces, not a lot of side views. All hookups are good, excellent cable. Wi-Fi good. On my last day, a Monday, the park was at most 1/3 full, yet they put a unit on either side of me, when there were all kinds of sites that would have given them a space on either side, as well as leaving space on both sides of my motorhome. Management was ok; one bright spot was a work camper who really enjoyed her job. Would stay again as all the other parks in Valdez are essentially the same.

This is a great RV park to visit Valdez. You can walk to the stores and the harbor. The staff were real friendly and helpful. You can stand right by your RV and see all the beautiful mountains that surround the town. We had a great time visiting Valdez, we would recommend Bayside RV Park to everyone.

There was good and bad here and a rating depends on what you are looking for. We were there for fishing and for that, this site is excellent. If on the other hand you prefer a “camping” feel, then this is not for you. The good: the showers and bathrooms were clean and there is laundry available. There are full hook ups. For fishing, this was perfect, we could roll out of bed at 5:30am and walk the one block to the harbor and on return the freeze and ship location is right across the street, next to a small coffee stand. It is a close walking distance to groceries and restaurants. The bad: The sites are close, our slides could open, but there is not really room to put chairs out and no way to have a fire or other classic camping experience. The staff was okay, but not particularly friendly or helpful, but not unfriendly either. There is no shade or trees, it is basically a parking lot with hook-ups. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground, but no trees or shrubs. We had a front row site with a beautiful view of the estuary and surrounding mountains. Easy walking distance to just about everything in Valdez. Office staff was very friendly. The internet service and cable TV both were excellent. The laundry room was clean and open 24 hours a day. There was a little bit of traffic noise, but not too bad during the night. Unlike previous reviewer's comment, they did not fee the eagle while we were there. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.
