Convenient to the Alaska Highway. Restaurant and gift shop onsite. Campsites not well developed. Primarily a dirt and gravel campground with a few trees separating some campsites, very typical of the northwest. WiFi only available in the clubhouse. No FHU. No TV reception. No designated dog walk area. For an overnight stay on the Alaska Highway, it is about as good as you can get. Would stay here again if we had to. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had a 30A level pull-through dirt site. There are no sewer hookup on the sites but they do have a dump station. The utilities worked well and we were able to pickup the Wi-Fi using our booster. No Verizon cell service but they do have cable TV with 8 channels. Campground is easy to get in and out but the roads to the sites and dump station needs grading. Friendly owner and very nice store. We would stay here again for an overnighter. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
As others have noted, this park is large and has very large sites. We were in a pull through that was at least 75-80 ft long. Water and 50 amp at the site, no sewer (dump station was clean and convenient though). They're right on the Alaska Highway near the cutoff for Highway 37. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Gravel roads were moderately rough, but nothing problematic. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
I was pleasantly surprised with this RV park. It has VERY spacious sites but it is rustic, not at all manicured, so not for everyone. Long pull throughs, water, electric and cable at each site. It has washrooms, showers, etc which we didn't use. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only reason I am not giving a 10 to this campground is the lack of WIFI at the sites. There is a hotspot at the office and it would be easy to add an antenna inside the park. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Pleasant stopping place for visiting Watson Lake and the Signpost Forest. Extremely friendly with nice store/fuel and excellent restaurant on premises. Very large private shaded 30/50 amp full hookup dirt/gravel sites. Has WiFi at office and cable at sites. Separate open area for caravans.
Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
Do not know rate as we were part of a prepaid Alaska Caravan. Very large campground right on the Alcan highway a few miles from Watson Lake. The campground has a separate caravan area which is a large gravel lot w/water, elec and cable and cute small picnic table. The sites were pullthru long and level. The rest of the park was wooded and much nicer. Wi-Fi only worked near office. There is a very nice restaurant, gift shop and gas station at the entrance to the campground.
We would stay here again but would prefer the more rustic wooded area of the campground. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
The sign post village in Watson lake is a must see. The restaurant at the campground is very good.
We reserved in May and were given a price with our Good Sam discount. We mentioned that we had two dogs and wanted full service hookup. When we arrived, they could not find our reservation for a 50 amp site but luckily there was one left. However, in the period between reserving a site and our arrival, they upped the prices, added a $2.00 per pet fee and never informed us in our confirmation email. We drove to the very back of the park to set up and I could not find a sewer hookup. Asked the park host and was informed that full service does not include sewer hookup. We could not use our washer/dryer for laundry, so we walked 200 yards to use their laundry. The washers are new, the dryers are new, BUT the iron level in the water made it come out dark yellow, as did our whites. When we used our air conditioning, their breaker kept tripping. You get to walk to the office to get it reset, as there are no resets on the site.Do not trip a breaker at night, no one is available. Our $2.00 pet charge entitled us to nothing except getting to pay it. There are no dog bags,no pet runs and no one to clean up any other people's pet messes. We filled up on water and dumped it before leaving. Their potable water was a smelly dark yellow color.
We stayed because we really had no other option. A little truth in their advertising and we never would have reserved a spot.
Had breakfast the next morning at their restaurant. The order was not delivered correctly. When I mentioned it. I was told that I was holding up a table and should leave. We travel every two years to Alaska. First time at Nugget City and also the LAST. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
Roads very dusty, area is experiencing a dry spring. All vegetation very dry. Nice back-in site that was fairly level. Good Wi-Fi, restrooms very clean. Stayed one night and would stay here again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Truck Camper.
We really enjoyed our stay. Others have described it, but the roads were smooth in the park in June. Nice man at check in, easy. Great time on the patio of the restaurant on site. Overall a very pleasant stay, In a 42 ft pulling a jeep and would stay here again. , We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Stop early, enjoy the view and relax on their patio.
Not impressed. The sites are big and 30amp power was good. Good water pressure. Sites are far apart but most are not that level. Very big park and getting around to find your spot is challenging. The gravel roads are full of pot holes. The WiFi only works at the office. Tried to use the bathrooms but were locked and was not given the code to get in. Cable tv is only 6 channels. I will say the staff are nice. I will skip this one if in the area again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here in a MH with a towed. Pull through site was large enough that we were not required to unhook. Manager was very friendly and helpful. Elec was 30 amp and voltage remained above 117 VAC at all times. Did not hook up to water, use dump station, or RV wash. Bathroom/showers were very clean with plenty of hot water for 1 loonie per 2 1/2 minutes. Did not eat in restaurant. WiFi was of sufficient quality to get email but was only available adjacent the office. Sites were gravel and level and pull-through access was easy with the exception of going slow through the potholes in the park roads. Park was very quiet and we didn't notice a problem with road noise. Park is very close to the Cassiar Highway (37). Diesel was $1.56 liter and pumps shut off at $100.00. We would stay here again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
A billboard about a few miles east of Nugget City says it provides full service. This conflicts with web site which says H2O & electric only. Didn't use web site as service was unavailable and didn't know there was no sewer hookups until after parked in space. Entry to park very rough with large potholes. Interior roads gravel but in good condition. Service at restaurant was very slow and expensive considering quality of meal. No bread or roll provided with supper meal. Asked for water and was told only bottled water was available and it cost extra. Cable TV reception good but limited in selection. Wi-Fi available in restaurant and office area for additional $10. Nice gift shop. Overall I felt this park was over priced and over rated. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
Great staff. Good DirecTV satellite view if in one of the upper hill spaces. Lots of mosquitoes. Will stay here again. Fuel available in front of campground. Sites were level and far enough off the highway so as not too have much road noise. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
This park is very understaffed (when we went). There is a restaurant and fuel available. The staff that was there was very friendly and helpful. Site are nicely spaced apart. There is 30-amp service, cable, and water. There is a sani-dump available rather than sewer hook-ups. There are lots and lots of mosquitoes at this park so make sure you have some insect repellent available. The park is located about 15 minutes west of Watson Lake. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Positives: sites were level with gravel. Restaurant had great burgers. Restrooms were spotless and water was hot! Laundry was $3 a load but was spotless. Fuel was easy to get to right out front. Staff were great. Sani-dump and rv wash. We didn't have enough coins to run the wash or we would have used it. Long site and didn't have to disconnect. Negatives: The hook-ups were all in the rear. No wi-fi unless next to the office so I feel they shouldn't advertise it. Noise from road so you may want to have a site at the back. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.
