Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $10.00
Posted rate is for a dry site. Electric sites are available (20$). The dry sites are more in the back nestled in the woods. Tight and poorly maintained road through the campground. Low hanging branches in the sites. This ads to the rundown impression of the whole place. Check in is in the restaurant which didn't look too appealing either. However, the owner was very friendly and were given free choice regarding a site. Very few sites were occupied and we picked one close to the river. Very nice surroundings, good privacy and of course very quiet. WiFi would have been available at the restaurant. Dump station on the way out. I couldn't locate a water spigot but I would expect one to be around somewhere. Pit toilets which we didn't use but no showers. All in all an acceptable overnight place we would always prefer to a pullout on the highway. We camped at Rancheria Lodge and RV Park in a Truck Camper.
This is located at historic milepost 710 (Km 1,000) of the Alaska Highway and was established just after the Alaska highway was complete and the war over as a lodge for the bus tourists to stay. It is now a restaurant/bar/motel/RV Park/Fuel stop. The trees adjacent host an unusually nice little campground. Some sites are pull through with over 70' length. Trees and vegetation separate each site. Plenty of the sites have 30 amp power. At this time the shower house was closed but were advised there were showers available in the lodge. There is a dump station near the exit. The water spigot at the shower house was dry. Free Wi-Fi is available in the lodge and was quite good. Fire rings are available if you get a day without mosquitoes. We did not try the cafe but truckers do stop there for breakfast. To enter the pull through sites, go to the left of the entrance with the stop sign. There were a few potholes as per usual in this country. At $20 it seemed to be a good value in that it included Wi-Fi. We camped at Rancheria Lodge and RV Park in a Motorhome.
