This isn't a bad campground to spend a few days in. It's not the prettiest, nor is it the best kept, but it's certainly acceptable. The spaces were large enough for our 43 foot RV (we had to park the toad at an angle to keep it out of the street though) and all the hookups worked fine. And their internet access was very, very good, even when the park was full. It's very convenient to the great town of Prince Rupert, which we enjoyed very much. And, as others have said, the campground is very close to the ferry landing. If you're in a space near the main road that fronts the campground, which we were, you're going to get a lot of traffic noise - trucks, cars, loud motorcycles, etc. It wasn't too bad late at night, but the traffic noise was pretty constant all day. Moreover, there are quite a few late arrivals who get off of a ferry. So, this isn't the quietest park. In fact, it's the noisiest we've stayed in for quite some time. Regardless, we'd stay here again without hesitation just to have a chance to visit Prince Rupert. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Not the most flashy of places, but it was very acceptable and they happily took us in. The sites weren't amazing, but they definitely were not bad either. It was clean, and that is better than some other places we stayed at.

Compared to other places, the wifi was great. We had a pretty fast internet speed which was great for my family.

Overall, I have nothing to really complain about. I would stay again if I was to be in the area, since it's close to my boat. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is set up about 1.5 miles from downtown, nice set up on a hill. Spots and hook-ups very nice. Bathroom seems a little dirty, no TP in the bathroom, water not very warm. Needs more places hooks to hang clothes. Not sure if the blower in the shower area was a heater or not. For this price the bathroom should be super. Also charged me $2 a day for the dog. Nice places to walk dog, though. If they remodeled the shower area this place would be a 10/9. Wi-Fi did work great on spot 16 on top of hill. Not much choice when you come here. We did bike to downtown--hilly. Laundry is closed from 8 PM to 9 AM. The spaces here are great, hook-ups great gravel with lots of grass. No bugs. Overall disappointing I guess would stay again since it's the only place. If had choice, no. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You could walk downtown. I think they have a bus line. We rode our bikes but it was hilly. Just disappointed in the washroom.

We got off the ferry at 2:15 in the morning and were happy to find this campground open this late in the season. We were given a discount since we only were here half the night the first night. We choose our own spot, level and grassy with full hook-up. Excellent Wi-Fi. It's not the prettiest spot, but served our needs well. The laundry was out of service (or closed for the season). We stayed two nights and would return. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Owner is a bit grumpy but we decided to give him some slack after his wife told us he suffered from a head injury. Got us 2 side by side spaces with no advance reservation with full hookups in an otherwise pretty full park. While not spectacular in view this park is open, easy to access and generally well kept once you look past 2 of the 4 clothes dryers inoperable and 1 of the 3 showers down but then were not picky and did not have to wait in line for either service. Firewood is expensive at $15 for large bundle, we made it last 2 nights. Good satellite and wifi reception. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Not pretty, but big spaces and good Wi-Fi. Very close to the ferry terminal. Laundry is old and it takes two trips through the dryer to be effective. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is nice and very convenient to the ferry. There is space between sites, grass, nice gravel interior roads and clean restrooms. It is not particularly scenic, but it served our purposes just fine, and I would recommend it. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Yes, this is an "older" site, and yes, some of the sites are sloped in one axis (use wheel or tongue blocks?!) and yes the rest rooms and showers are not new and a bit "tired" however, it is very close to town and the ferry, the site is a nice one with open areas and trees; there is a playground for kids;tent platforms and a large picnic shelter for tents; the picnic tables are almost all new; the manager is interesting friendly and was helpful to us. We have stayed in far worse campgrounds! We rate it a 6 only because of its age. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is run-down. Expected much better for the only RV park near the ferry terminal. One washroom building is locked up. The other is fairly clean but only one shower on the men's side works. Instead of replacing a nozzle, they screwed the door shut! The third shower has no light. The laundry was in bad shape. WiFi was available but intermittent. Apparently this park was run by the city until it was sold a couple of years ago. Needs some money put back into maintenance! It's a black eye for the community.

It is a great location if using he ferry system, however, sites were not level. If past 35' (we were) you had to occupy two sites and were charged an additional $5. One of the two shower facilities was and had been closed. The RV dump was in a very difficult location and most people were using a pull through site. Will avoid this site in the future. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Truck Camper.

Where do I start! The bathrooms are locked. You have to go in and get the key each time you need to use one. After all that the bathrooms were not clean enough for me to feel comfortable using. The park is just a big field with unlevel, wet sites. The only attraction (adjacent hiking trails) are blocked off and closed. The base price for a night stay is far too high for what you get (over $30 a night), and it goes up for a myriad reasons. I'm sorry but I can't recommend this campground. The manager told us that he is the "only show in town". When we complained to the tourism office the next day they pointed us to another campground 10 min away, which was much better. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a basic campground; the best thing about it is that it's right outside the Alaska Marine Highway System terminal so it's convenient if you're taking the ferry or getting off one. The owner seems pleasant and accessible. There is serviceable but not great Wi-Fi but no satellite internet access (at least for us). There is some confusion about the name of the campground, with some databases showing it as Park Avenue RV Park, but it's the same place. Don't know if it's in the process of changing the name or if it goes by both names, but it's a bit confusing. We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A half mile from the Alaska and BC ferry terminals. Very quiet. Nice playground equipment and shelters. Grass and trees. The bathrooms weren't all that clean. The women's room had no paper towels in the dispensers, and one of the hand blowers in the men's room wasn't working. There was ample hot water. There is supposed to be a hiking trail but the bridge to access it was closed. It was $3.50 extra for our 11-year-old, who didn't take a shower (the ostensible reason for the charge). We camped at Prince Rupert RV Campground in a Motorhome.
