Nice little park for an overnight stay. The diesel generator (they call it music) runs all night, but you get used to it. Most popular place was the circuit breaker boxes as people kept blowing their 15 amp circuits. Sites have water but no sewer (dump site on the way out). If you don't need any utilities they have some really nice sites away from everyone (and the noise). We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful location, only 15 amp power available, with water and a dump station. Great, but popular, stop for those traveling the Alaska Hwy. Sites are fairly level, owners are very helpful, and ready to serve you, but don't walk on the grass. Facilities were clean and well kept for a seasonal campground in this area. Would highly recommend this campground for those traveling the Alaska Hwy. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

In our entire Alaska adventure, this was our favorite campground. If you want peace and serenity after a day's driving, this is the place to stop. Because of the nature of it's surroundings they have some different rules---such as you carry your garbage out with you, and electric service is only 15 amp, because there is no electricity available to the entire property, just a very large generator.But the 15 amps, gets the job done. Wi-Fi will keep you connected, but simiply sitting by the most beautiful lake and mountains of Kluane will repair your soul. We stayed on our way up the Alaskan highway AND on the way back. Will stay here again next chance we get. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Views across the lake and mountains all around make this a lovely setting. Roads and sites are gravel, with greenery between sites to give a bit of privacy and natural feel. Our site was electrical only, conveniently placed, 15 amp. They offered WiFi, but did not work when we were there, nor is there any cell phone service in the area, so enjoy the quiet! Bathrooms and showers were spotlessly clean, even if the shower stalls are a bit small. This park feels extra clean and neat overall, and the owners are quite pleasant (as long as you don't get him started on WiFi!). We would definitely stay here again.

This is one beautiful place! Unlike the previous reviews, I won't complain about the utilities. We were warned beforehand to switch our water heaters to propane instead of electricity. No problem. Limited WiFi, so what? Enough to check email. We had no problems with the electricity going off. The owners were friendly and helpful, and the grounds were spotless. The trash could be a problem, but not if you're careful and don't generate too much. We'll be staying here again on our way home from Alaska! We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a hard campground to rate. It's view is second to none. Kluane Lake is absolutely spectacular as is the mountains behind you. The owner's are nice. The down side is that power is limited to 15A, which borders on being a dry camp. I would highly recommend they change their power distribution so there are a few 30A, a few 20A a few 15A and possible a few 10A sites. I know they can't justify a larger generator, but could change the distribution. The laundry room is closed and the one dump station is on the wrong side of the drive. The power is only on from 4pm to check out time. But, again, the view is worth the other inconveniences. We were in a 45-foot MH towing a car and didn't have any problems. I'd certainly stay again. In the Yukon, the view doesn't get any better than this. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Same as the previous reviewer. Nice site, beautiful views but we signed up for this RV park because they said they had Wi-Fi. But they don't have it at the sites, and we were right across from the office! Also, dumping was not convenient, could not flush the tanks and we had to pack out our own trash. The owner told me it was because of bears, but the real reason is that they do not want to pay a trash company to empty bear proof bins. Would not stay here again.

First let me say that the other posts are correct about the views. They really are nice, and the park is well cared for. But that is not the whole picture. The electric is only 15 amp, and is supplied by a generator. The park may also shut down power completely for 4-5 hours a day. The voltage dropped a few times a day, causing everything in the rig to reset when the Surge Guard tripped out. There is no cell service, and the only internet is if you stand on the deck outside the office, and is still a bit weak. Sacking out your own trash is a pain for more than one night, and if you have a pet, there is no place to discard pet waste. Since there were several bear sightings in the park, trash and pet waste must stay inside your rig. The dump station is difficult to access in a large rig. It is on the way out and you must pull to the extreme right side of the road in a slight curve next to some bushes. And flushing is not permitted at the dump station. The location is very scenic, but in the overall sense is lacking in many areas. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful lakeside sites, where you could park front-in instead of back-in in enjoy the sights. The owners were very friendly. There are no garbage bins, because of the bears in the area. Please note that the Yukon Government Campground a few miles further north was closed this July. One of the best campgrounds during our holidays. We would stay again here.

This park has got to be one of the most beautiful campgrounds I have ever seen. We had a spot right on the water, with a spectacular view of the lake. It was raining, which is too bad, because if it had been sunny we would definitely stayed another night. The park itself is beautifully groomed. The owners were delightful and very helpful. There had been bear sightings recently, but we did not see any. This park is definitely one to put on your "must stay at" list. We loved it. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Truck Camper.

This is probably the most picturesque RV park we have ever stayed at. Lakefront sites with beautiful mountain views with lots of trees and flowers. Bathrooms and showers are very clean. They don't have sewer connections, so if you don't need that I would highly recommend this RV park. Also no garbage bins due to the bears. I would give them a 10 except their free Wi-Fi is painfully slow. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have been on the road for 7 weeks and this has been our favorite campground. It is located on Kluane Lake at the base of a breathtakingly beautiful mountain range. You are surrounded by mountains, lake and trees in a peaceful atmosphere. Because they generate their own power, you are restricted to 15 amps, but this was not hard to accommodate. The owners take exceptional pride in this campground and the evidence of that is everywhere. Even though there were no more lake-front sites with water and a fire pit available when we checked in, they reserved us (at no additional cost) a site on the lake with a fire-pit so we could enjoy it in the evening. The Wi-Fi was somewhat erratic, but it was more an issue with cloud cover than it was with their signal. Be sure and have plenty of provisions if you stay here as it is hours to the nearest store. The area is a bear refuge, so be prepared to pack out your trash with you. We loved our stay there and will definitely stay again on the way back home. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a lovely spot directly on Kluane Lake. The park is well manicured and a testament to the owner's years of care. The small store/office has a book exchange also which proved to be a pleasant surprise. We would definitely stay here again. This is grizzly country. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

The beautiful natural setting of this park is enhanced by the care the owners have put into it. Gravel sites are separated from one another by flowers, trees and neatly shaped shrubs. Restrooms and showers were very clean. The attitude was warm, welcoming and concerned that your stay be enjoyable. The electric hookups were only 15 amp, Wi-Fi was fairly slow, potable water was available near the office and a sanitary dump facility was on site. Oddly, no trash pickup is provided so you must take it with you when you leave. The limited services are understandable given the location of the park and we would eagerly stay here again.
