Very quiet setting on a beaver pond with active dam. Very close sites though and very basic. When they are busy you are told to just go see if there are any empty sites and let them know---not very professional. Rates are good, restaurant has good food as well. Has gotten better over the last several years but is still a basic rv campground. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An ok place to stay overnight in the middle of nowhere. Summer time is very busy and reservations are almost mandatory. Rates are good, sites are very small, tight, and just a basic parking place for your rig. Very few other options though.

What a gem of a park and a pleasant surprise. Beautiful setting, pull through and back in sites. Roads and sites are packed rock and sites are level. Located in a mountain valley, this park by a small lake. 30 amp power, cable TV, free wifi works well. Had a delicious lunch in the lodge restaurant, and topped off my fuel tank for the next leg of our trip. If we had realized it was this pleasant we would have scheduled more nights here.

Rate reflects discount and exchange rate. We had a pull thru level site with the utilities in the proper area and in good working order. They also have free firewood for their guests. This area was loaded with moose and bear. We had a great stay and enjoyed the area. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is located in a beautifu setting - tree covered mountains, snow capped mountains, adjacent to a river, lake (we saw a female moose feeding in the water on the opposite side of the lake). Nearby restaurant (with hundreds of hats nailed to the ceilings) and diesel fuel is available. Park is dusty from road dirt but this is a fact of life when traveling the Alcan Highway. There is some road noise from traffic on the Alcan but, again, this is normal. Sites are level and spacious. Would love to stay here again. It was a welcome sight after dealing with the Alcan bumps and gravel areas. A very pleasant surprise for a town with a population of 75! We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a combination Lodge with cabins and RV park. The campground has a level gravel surface with grass between some sites and some trees around the perimeter. We arrived without a reservation and were placed in a row (site # 2 to 5) of back-in full service sites close to the highway. While a little noisy during the day, by about 8:30pm there is no traffic. Our full service 30amp back-in site was $34.13 Cdn with GS discount. There are a number of lakefront back-in sites and there are 5 non-lakefront pull-through sites (#18 to 22). With a government power station just down the road, electricity is reliable and a full 30amp. All sites have a picnic table and fire ring. There is free WiFi (reliable, fast and accessible from all sites) and free firewood. Laundry is $7 for one load of wash and dry. Diesel = $1.32/L, gas = $1.39L, propane is by the tank at $1/L. There is a restaurant in the main building with a good selection of souvenirs and some fishing supplies, though there are NO groceries. There is no cell phone reception. And of course there is the famous collection of 10,918 hats on the ceiling (as of June 24, 2017). Like several places along the AlCan, they sell cinnamon buns, however the one we had was stale. For lunch one day I had a bison burger (couldn't tell the difference from a regular hamburger) and my wife had a clubhouse. The sandwich was served on thick homemade bread. The thin slices of deli chicken, as opposed to fresh baked, was a disappointment, but the excellent homemade French fries helped make up for that shortcoming. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park on the Alaskan Hwy that offers full hookup sites beside a pond with snow-clad mountains in the distance. Great wifi and plenty of room for big rigs. Beware the check-in woman who offers no help to find your site and who claims to offer Good Sam discount, but doesn't. 2017 rate is $35cdn for everyone, which is not bad for what you get. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The back-in sites back up to the lake and offer beautiful views. The pull-through sites are level and in the middle of the campground. If we had known the back in sites were so much prettier, we would not have asked for pull through. The wifi worked very well from our site. Posted cost for one load of laundry - $6.00! Café and gas station also on site. Free fire wood. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful setting against the lake. Saw elk in field and beavers were busy in the lake. Free wood was a plus with great site backed up to the lake. Nice to find full service site w/ water,sewer, 30 amp and wifi. Nice meal at little restaurant on premises. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a pleasant surprise! Very nice small campground on a lake with a gas station, restaurant and cabins. We had a cool site right on the lake and our second morning we had a rainbow reflection in the lake. We we pulled in so that we could face the lake and used just the electric hook-up. Level site with a picnic table. We would definitely stay here again. There are pull-thru sites available but they are not on the lake. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The only reason I didn't give this a 10 is because of some road noise. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. I had a pull through site which was long enough for my 38' coach and tow car. There is a lake on the property with a beaver dam and lodge. The owner cuts tree branches and puts them on the bank near the campsites. The beavers come to eat right up to within 3' or so of the campers who are watching them and taking their pictures. This is most definitely a place to which I would like to return. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful, clean well maintained rv park. We were given a back in site right on the lake. We were able to watch a moose eat in the lake while we had our dinner and later saw two beaver.
Even though its right on the highway it was very quiet. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This small park on a lonely stretch of the Alaska Highway is one of the nicest places we've stayed at in more than eight years of full-time RVing. It's also one of the best bargains, thanks in part to the favorable foreign exchange rate and a Good Sam discount. Large, level gravel pads with picnic tables and fire boxes in good condition at each site, surrounded by well-groomed lawn. There's also FREE FIRE WOOD! The park slopes gently down to a medium sized lake with swans aswimming and there are stunning alpine vistas. There's a cafe with a good comfort food menu and cabins that look very nice on the outside. We extended our stay from an overnight to three days because we liked the place so much. There were only a few other campers while we were there, which allowed the dog off-leash to chase a Frisbee and swim in the lake without bothering anyone else (or the swans) or objection from the management. The wi-fi worked well. Elevation is 2,400 ft., so check the weather. We were just barely, and I mean barely given the latitude (North 58?51'), able to connect with DirecTV using a Winegard TRAV'LER dish; no luck with earlier attempts in Fort Nelson and Pink Mountain. If satellite fails, the cable TV signal here is good and channels include HBO and IFC. Fuel and propane are available; we did not check the prices. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Motorhome.
