Like many parks on the Al-Can, just a parking lot. But previous parks have at least had a nice view, some space and friendly owners. Park spaces here are very narrow and we could not extend our awning. While it's within walking distance of the Watson Lake Sign Post, not much else to recommend it. One positive: the best cable on the Al-Can so far.

Would not stay here again Not a good value. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Basically a large dirt lot. I had a pull through dirt site that needed a 1 inch board to level side to side. RV's are jammed next to each other. Free 1 hour WI-FI did not work. Office staff blamed my Apple computer. Could not open awning without hitting trailer next to me. One wooden post divides each site. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Parking lot, close together, no problem with TC Good thing about this park is it has full hookups and near signpost forest and grocery store. Bad thing is that it is just a dusty gravel parking lot. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Yes, it's a gravel parking lot and the spaces are tight. Welcome to the Alaska Highway. You'll see a lot more of these gravel lots in the Yukon and Alaska. We called ahead for a reservation, and stayed two nights, so I guess that's why we got a space by the office with a neighbor on only one side. This place is an easy walk to the Signpost Forest (a must see), plus a grocery store. There's also a gym near the Signpost Forest. All utilities were fine. One negative, not controllable by the park, were there were some really creepy folks that hung out in front of the grocery store. Regarding the owner, the subject of many reviews here, I found him friendly and helpful. Look people, this guy has to deal with many people who are on the Alaska Highway for the first time, and they don't realize that most of the RV parks ahead of them are gravel lots in some way, shape or form. I would stay at this park again - it's fine. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is terrible. Just a big parking lot filled with gravel and extremely dusty especially on a windy day. The lady in the office (not sure if it was the owner) was not pleasant. Was told they had 50amp, but never informed us they only had 3 spots which had 50 amp. In the long pull thru's each spot is separated by a pylon with services hooked up to it were so close together that it was difficult to put out all our slides. Not many RV parks in town, so it's slim pickings!!!!.. Rather BoonDock!! We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is basically just a gravel parking lot. The sites are VERY close together, we didn't even need to use our walkie talkies to talk to our friends, we just talked out the window! It is in a great location though, a short walk to the Signpost Forest and the Northern Lights Center was right across the street. The laundry room was clean. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Northern Lights Center was very interesting, the 360 movie was well worth the minimal price of admission. The Signpost Forest was fun to visit, wish we would have brought a sign from our home town! There is a very nice grocery store right outside the park entrance, very well stocked and sold fresh baked breads and pastries.

This park is a convenient overnight stop on the Alaska Highway. It is a gravel parking lot with FHU. Dusty in dry weather and muddy in wet. Everything worked as advertised and a self-service RV/car wash is available. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed overnight on our way to Whitehorse. The park is basically a parking lot. Sites were tight but easy in and out. The owner is GREAT! He told me that every site is full hookups with Cable and wifi included. He is friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He's a funny guy to talk to. He came around after we setup to check that everything was okay. You get 2 hours a day free wifi. I got a good signal in the 5th wheel. I have no problem with that, we checked email and a bit of other stuff. The park is close to the signpost forest and the northern lights center. So even though this park is a gravel parking lot, it was well worth the price and the stay. We will stay there again. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

No one was in the office when we arrived in the early evening hours. We filled out a form and put that and the payment in a drop box. Camping area is a gravel parking lot. However, it is a clean parking lot with 20-30 amp electric hook-ups. No trees. Wi-Fi signal is nonexistent...on and off again. Very sporadic. Water faucet was there, but turned off for winter. Good for a one night stay if self-contained. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Downtown RV on our way to Alaska and again on our way back to the Lower 48. As other reviewers stated, the campground is convenient to the Sign Forest and a very nice grocery store. There are also a couple of restaurants across the street. WiFi is not usable unless you go the the office porch. The campground itself is one big parking lot which is quite typical for commercial campgrounds in the Yukon. One nice amenity is the coin operated RV/truck wash on the site... very much needed after traveling the Alaska and Yukon roads under construction. Sites are very close together but long enough that we did not have to unhook from our tow vehicle. Don't expect a "nice" RV park, but a good place to stop to get supplies or enjoy a home cooked type dinner or breakfast across the street. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is convenient to the sign forest, the grocery store, the visitor center with its museum and a walking trail partially around the lake. We had pull-thru site and were able to walk to all of these and not unhook our Jeep. The sites are very close, have no picnic table and no fire pit. The sites are dirt but level and the hook-ups work fine. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stay here only if you can't find anything else. Price is too high for what you get. Sites are barely 14' wide so your neighbor's slide is only a foot or so from yours. Park is basically a level gravel parking lot with hookups. Utilities worked fine (30 amp, water, and sewer). Owners are livid about water usage and threaten eviction if you wash your windshield or RV nose. They want you to pay to wash at their RV wash. WiFi doesn't work. Cable TV works fine. Cell coverage is good. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient location near Sign Post Forest and Northern Lights Center. Sardine spaces, but just there for the night. Utilities worked good. WIFI was terrible and you had to be at the office and only allowed 1 hour access. Park was clean, would stay again just for a night. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
