The good: a bit off the Alaska highway, so quieter. Treed. Sites are decent size.

The bad: interior roads in the park are in very poor shape, tons of potholes. And, absolutely no wifi unless you sit by the office. Ok for an overnighter, but I would stay at Downtown RV (where we stayed on the trip out to Alaska) over this one--because you then have walking distance access to Sign Forest, grocery, restaurants, Northern Lights. Here at Nugget City that isnt the case. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is okay for a night or two. You are off the grid with no cell phone, virtually no wifi, & no cable TV. Wifi is only available beside the office and very limited. You might be able to get satellite TV. Sites are relatively level, gravel, & Big Rig suitable at about 65' long. There's about 15' between sites. Laundry is expensive at $3 wash & $3 dry. Pay showers are available. There's an RV wash for 2 minutes at 2 Loonies. Campground sells fuel but for anything else, you'll need to trek to Watson Lake. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly person at check-in. WiFi extremely slow and only available at the office. Water and electric hookup, pull through sites long but not level. Sani Dump located along interior road to exit.

Off the Alaska Highway enough to reduce sound. Located 15 miles north of Watson Lake just past the junction with the Cassiar Highway. Diesel was $.20 US higher than Watson Lake. Restaurant very expensive. Proprietors are opportunistic. Would not stay at this location again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overpriced for what you get. Restaurant too high, ate at the unit. WIFI almost non-existent and if you use it, they warn that if you violate their usage rules, you will be escorted from the park.

There is no cell services available and if only here for 1 night, no point in cable hookup. No trash cans either. Sign on property says you need to take your trash with you and dump in a roadside container. Shady sites are higher priced. Would not stay here again.

Better choices available which are closer to everything: grocery, eats, gas, the Northern Lights Center and the Sign Post Forest. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overpriced. Park was almost empty. There were 8 other sites with campers but we couldn't get a 50 amp pull through.

We were in a 43' pusher with 4 slides and couldn't put out an awning. Not sure why we didn't rate one of their huge pull through sites; it's not like anyone else was here.

When we pulled out, our road led right to the front gate; which was barricaded closed. We finally found an exit sign after cruising around for a bit. That was a little disconcerting.

$45 Canadian for 30 amps, unwatchable cable tv, and as others have stated, no wifi. The sewer connection seemed adequate. Luckily we just stayed one night on our way north.

Would not stay here again unless the price was about half. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Look for other options in the area.

You are miles from town and the fuel, food, restaurant, and other prices at their establishment are quite high.

Plan ahead if you stay here.

We stayed at this park on our first trip to Dawson City, YT from Alberta, Canada. We booked RV sites based on full service provisions. Baby Nugget was the only site out of 14 that didn't live up to their online brochure. We paid 51 Canadian for a full service site with WIFI. We got 30 Amp and bad water. There was Cable with 8 channels that we didn't bother hooking up. The site was rocky and a bit unlevel. There were no fires allowed. The entrance gate was locked at night but the exit was wide open. The WIFI advertised was available if you were standing right beside the office and did do the trick for emails. There was a sign in the laundry room that stated that if you get caught streaming video or using too much data you would be escorted out of the park. There was alot of potholes in the roads and you need to follow the 5 kph speed limit to keep the dust down. There is a restaurant, gift shop and gas station on site. The day I was here the advertised mechanic on duty was away. I asked the attendant about the walking trails in the area and he told me that he was not familiar with the area and couldn't offer me any help. I would never use this campground again. (We stayed at another Watson campground on the way back. It was far nicer and only 12 bucks Canadian. It came with free firewood and great swimming at the lake.) Septic Dump is avail for free in town. I hope this helps other people to avoid a bad choice. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here on our return trip from Alaska, and honestly, I'm glad we missed it on the way in. However, if as we did, you plan to head down the Cassiar Hwy., it is the only convenient place to stop. As mentioned in another review, the overall appearance of the place is rather shabby. To be charitable, let's call it "a work in progress". Our gravel site was spacious and level. The water pressure was good, but the water tasted terrible! High iron content, I suspect. Tasted like a rusty pipe. The electric was fine. The power pedestals were practically new and actually had circuit breakers. Not true everywhere in the Yukon. As stated earlier, the WiFi was a joke. Parks who advertise WiFi should be required to state "limited WiFi" or some such qualifier in situations like this. Then again one must consider where you are. The affiliated restaurant was acceptable. Gasoline was "pay-at-the-pump" but was the most expensive we've seen anywhere. $4.02 per gallon. I doubt we'll stay here again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park offers an RV wash, but it's fairly expensive, and if you're heading south down the Cassiar, don't bother. You'll be wasting your money.

Baby Nugget RV Park near Watson Lake

This is an EXCELLENT RV park for the Yukon. They have water at each site plus up to 50 amps of power. Sami-dump station and RV/car wash. Everything is gravel, but roads and sites are spacious and everything is numbered and signed very clearly. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The "Wolf It Down" cafe has delicious baked goods along with ribs, burgers and more. The gift shop in the same complex is truly unique with high-quality handmade jewelry and other items as well. Very enjoyable and perfect "last services" place before tackling the beautiful Cassiar Highway (Hwy 37).

Stayed 2 nights in a pull through site with a 40 ft motorhome and toad, site easily long enough. Water and electric good; they had 50 amp but we went with 30 since we were not running AC. Site level and shaded. Good restaurant on premises. Good cable TV. Wifi worked fine in buildings near office. Only 2 negatives are the distance from Watson Lake and complete lack of cell signal--had to drive a few miles back toward Watson Lake for it to work. Dump station and RV wash both well located and convenient. We will stay again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in this RV park on our way home from Alaska. It was OK for overnight. Park could use some maintenance. Someone's junk left in our site and grass and weeds between sites could be removed. Wi-Fi only worked while standing outside office. Interior roads had some potholes, but could navigate around them. We would probably look for another place if in the area again. We camped at Baby Nugget RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.
