Cleanest restrooms/showers I've encountered. I believe they clean after each use. Shoes are not allowed in the shower/restroom building. They were a bit heavy-handed on that rule, but it makes for a very clean floor. The park was very nice and the office staff were friendly and helpful. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Large gravel park on top of hill overlooking town next to highway with good water and 50 amp. Not much ambiance - no trees or foliage between sites. We stayed 4 nights to explore the area and were comfortable here in our 40 foot coach. Some noise from trucks on the highway. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lots to see in the area. Local museum had interesting film on the Alaska Highway. Visited Tumbler Ridge - could have spent several days here! Visited Chetwynd to see the chainsaw carvings around town. Would have spent time in Hudson Hope and at dam if we had had more time.

We unfortunately had the displeasure of being next to two individuals who were very loud, yelling, playing music, and well past 11pm. The campground owners took care of the problem to more than our satisfaction. We will happily stay here again. Wifi speed was good and capped at 500mb/day. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Check-in was friendly and we were given Wi-Fi access pass code and directed to our site. The sites are rock and gravel, not level, and the power stanchion in our site was 30AMP with no breaker box. Most sites are drive through with picnic tables. After leveling and settling we tried the Wi-Fi access code and couldn't connect. CTV is grainy at best, almost not watchable. When we talked to the office staff person we were informed they didn't know Wi-Fi isn't available in our section, until we reported it. The section is full. CG choices are limited here, at the beginning of the Alaska Highway. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Mile Post 0, The Alaska Highway monument, lots of local history and interesting museums. Fuel is available at a reasonable price and shopping is convenient, just everything you might need in town. Just out of Grand Cache there is bridge construction and lane restriction. The closer to Dawson Creek, the better it gets and there are a lot of big rigs moving both directions because of petroleum and log transports.

Large open gravel parking area. Our site was level although some were not. Convenient to Dawson Creek for the tourist and shopping. Had good power and good cellular signal. I would use again. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dawson Creek - Milepost 0 - start of the Alaska Highway. We watched the 1 hr movie in the Train station museum (focused more on the building of the road) and the 1 hr movie in the Alaska House (focused more on the peopled). Both added tremendously to our knowledge before starting the route. Also, we drove north 15 miles to see the Kiskatinaw Bridge without our RV - well marked sign to turn off the highway. Easy to park and walk on the bridge.

Staying here since 4 years usually 2 times a year. Fast internet and all services working well. The hosts are super friendly. If traveling thru Dawson, make sure to stop a night or two here. Big pull thru sites, very easy accessible even for big rigs. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed only one night on the way to Alaska. Typical Alcan RV park - big gravel parking lot. Spacing wasn't too bad. Staff was friendly. Was fine for a one night stopover. A few miles from the Mile Zero monument but an easy drive there. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here on an RV tour so not real sure the price. Sites were fairly close but larger than most of the RV parks in Canada. Had a no washing policy that they enforced, cleaning the windshield is OK but no water on the ground. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Motorhome.

Had a flat, level, gravel, pull through site. I had to park next to the trailer to avoid blocking the road in front or back of trailer. AT&T worked well. WI-FI was OK. Our area had no trees. It rained the night before, but I did to experience the mud the previous reviewers talked about. The office staff and the staff member who led me to my sight were very friendly.

It was pouring down rain the night we were there. We had to do laundry after dry docking several days. We had to take our shoes off before we could enter the shower/bathroom/laundry areas. Therefore their areas were nice and clean. Thank you! BUT, it was pure mud throughout the entire campground. So we were forced to track-in mud into our travel trailer! If they would simply put down a lot more gravel it would sure help us all out when it is raining! We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

When taking your required photo downtown, stop at the Alcan Highway Museum on the corner and watch the one hour film on the construction of the highway. Will make you appreciate the next 1500 miles.

When driving through Canada don't pass up the Provencial Parks if you can boondock a nite or two. There are a number of RV parks in Dawson Creek and from the road they all look about the same.

This was rated one of the best in Dawson Creek. When we arrived we said if this was the best we would hate to see the others. But, the others were definitely not as nice! It had been raining so there was a lot of mud. The sites are gravel and a lot of dirt and mud, but the showers and laundry room areas were immaculate! I think they made the best of the wet conditions. Very nice people, hookups were good. If you're in Dawson Creek, I think this is your best bet. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Alaska Highway Museum was very interesting and I think the best stop we made. The Safeway was the best store we have been in since we left the US. The visitors center was interesting and helpful as was the grainery art gallery.

We have stayed in this park in the past. Most of the big rigs are above the office in a tiered gravel lot, but there is enough room for big rigs. Wifi was okay and view was nice. We camped at Northern Lights RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
