Been pouring the last few hours of my drive and Tubby's was the first RV park I saw. I had no reservation, but they had a spot for me. I stayed 3 nights to get past the storms...yes, it did get muddy, but it was muddy everywhere in town! Power/water worked as they should. Office personnel were friendly and helpful. Certainly not a destination resort, but wonderful as a port in a storm. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Travel Trailer.

High weeds, no wifi, our sewer hookup was not usable so had to request another site. Would not stay there again. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Truck Camper.

The good is the car wash with bays that will accept a motorhome, the laundry and the restrooms were excellent. The manager was congenial and accommodating. Most sites are fairly close back to back, and side by side with a common junction at the rear for all the utilities. Our initially assigned sites were unsatisfactory and the manager promptly moved us to better ones and then one of them had a bad water connection. The ground doesn't drain when wet and water ponds everywhere making it very muddy. Other campgrounds in the area were already filled with large caravans. A night here is acceptable if you need to wash the rig and do a load of laundry otherwise there are better choices if not full. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Travel Trailer.

This is Mile 0 of the ALCAN. There are museums and a large visitor's center with lots of information on the history of this road and the area. Visit Bear Mountain Wind Park for a view of the valley and a close up with a wind turbine. We had a good meal at Brown's Socialhouse.

Because I get most of the parks we stay at from this website, I seldom have a bad campground. However, I did this time. Unfortunately, Tubby's was flooded out this summer and is not really a functioning campground now. Some of the sites are 'X'ed out as not usable. However we were given a 'usable site and only found out what the problem was when we tried to dump. Our dump did not work and we had to find our another site with a usable one. When we found it, we told another couple so they could use it also since theirs did not work either. Since the park in down in a valley, the wi-fi is not good and the TV reception is not either. Some sites and low hanging trees, too low for a big rig to park under.

We would suggest that you find another campground until Tubby's is fixed. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Motorhome.

Very muddy campground - it had rained most of the day. Pull-through area in between long term residences. Pot holes. Nice staff . It is not a Good Sam park but gives the 10% discount. Two channels on antenna. Very weak Wi-Fi - had to move computer to window closest to office. Full hook-up 30 amps good for area. Good place to stay to visit Dawson Creek. Would stay again. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Motorhome.

This is not a pretty RV park, It is a convenient place to spend a night when starting the Alaska Highway. New owners took over last summer and the improvements are obvious. The bath house is immaculate with large private, tiled showers. However, the showers do cost - $1 for 3 minutes. The sites are level and tree shaded but close together. One nice feature is that this RV Park is the beginning of the town's walking/ biking path. After we set up, we easily biked to the center of town to take our picture in front of the 0 Milepost. We would stop here again on the way to Alaska. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Motorhome.

We stayed here because we were desperate, and I really hope we’re never quite that desperate again. The spots were so small they were claustrophobic. Even though we had a pull-through spot, it was tough getting in and out, and our slides were perilously close to our neighbor when we were parked. The hookups were not well maintained. The parking lot was muddy and full of pot holes. Our neighbors were friendly and pleasant, but the big diesel trucks that pulled in and out all night were not. The park was almost full, and most of the spaces were taken by people who lived in the park and worked at a nearby industrial site. The majority of the washers and dryers in the laundry room were broken. The bathrooms were clean but primitive. The Wi-Fi did not reach to our site, so we had to camp out in the spartan laundry room with our laptop to read e-mail. The park did not feel very secure at night, and the lighting wasn’t good. If you walked anywhere at night, you were liable to step in a pothole. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed because we like a shady campsite and most other campgrounds in the area don't offer shade. Mile "0" Campground does. The park is under new management and has added free WiFi, which worked well, but the campground is poorly maintained; considerable trash on ground, broken covers on electrical boxes, broken/loose water connections, etc. The manager was quick to leave the campground and get help to fix a broken water outlet, but otherwise we saw no one working on the campground in 3 days, which explains the general state of repairs. We drove through Mile "0" Campground and wished we'd stayed there. Lots of shade trees and most sites were wide with grass. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Travel Trailer.

During the summer it is hard to get a site in Dawson Creek, due to the many caravans starting out for Alaska from there. Mostly gravel parking lot, and sites are very tight. Also noticed the park was up for sale. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is half filled with permanent or seasonal residents. Power connection was not grounded. The Dawson Rotary trail is nearby. Our site was close to the road and some big rigs driving by were too close for comfort. We camped at Tubby's RV Park and Car Wash in a Motorhome.
