Pulled in to stay one night on our way to Haines, AK . Found this to be a very open park and one of the cleanest and nicest we've stayed in since we left the lower 48. Was disappointed the Wi-Fi is no longer available in the campground (only in the office) since too many people were downloading movies. The sites are large gravel sites with trees and grassy areas. The price is a little high ($40/with Good Sam discount) but know they have a limited time to make their year. I would stay here again and recommend it over the parking lots for the same price in the cities - so worth the drive out of town. Owner is extremely nice and the campfire is really nice in the evening. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful setting with huge grass area for our dogs to run. The owners recently purchased and are in process of improving, adding more bathrooms etc. Place is very clean and tidy, owners very friendly. Drove us to our spot. WiFi available inside the lodge which was fine considering this is in the middle of the Yukon! So pleased we made this spot a return to on our way home. One of the nicest spots we stayed at on our Alcan trip. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park owned by a nice lady who works very hard at keeping it looking great. There aren't a lot of choices on the Alcan Hwy, and we were happy to find this little gem. Big sites and a great atmosphere. Recommend this place highly! We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Very nice friendly park with many tree shaded sites and good well water. Staff and owner very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the area and local history. Many historical artifacts throughout the park related to the construction of the ALCAN in the 1940s. Evening campfire was a great place to meet and socialize with fellow travelers. Fishing in the Koidern River and Edith Creek was pretty good for Grayling. Didn't use laundry but restrooms and showers very clean. This park will be a destination the next time we are through the area. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

This was, by far, the best campground we have stayed at in Canada. The staff were just awesome and friendly. They wold have gotten a 10 except for a problem with over-voltage in the middle of the night. Their power is supplied by a generator and there was a brief issue. Wi-Fi is only available in the office. We will stay with them again. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Great park, with a large area for our dogs to run and play. The owner and staff were very nice and accommodating. They had a campground campfire that everyone could enjoy, which was a first for us and very nice. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice place with good sites, lots of trees, and friendly people. Hookups were good, site was level, Wi-Fi worked decently. The water was particularly tasty. The office has a number of wildlife mounts, skins, and other museum-like stuff, along with the old vehicles, antlers, and other interesting things in the yard mentioned previously. We would likely stay there again. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Very nice park with some interesting historical military vehicles. Friendly owners. We stayed here twice - once on our way to Alaska and once on the way back. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Our favorite place to stay on the Alcan - this was our 4th stop there going to and from Alaska. The owners are the two nicest folks you'll meet. They work incessantly to ensure your stay is pleasurable and memorable. As previously mentioned, the gentleman owner likes to take groups out on his World War II truck to see the White River and other natural attractions. They often have a large group campfire and invite guests to sit and chat. The electrical situation is manageable. The sites are level with a number of long pull-throughs. Water pressure is good, and they have sewage hook-ups at many sites. There is a beautiful 2000' grass airstrip and they don't mind if you allow your dogs to run free - within reason, of course. There are numerous collectible areas, including the old military vehicles, a group of very old outboard motors, a group of old washing machines (including several old wringer/washers), and a collection of old chain saws. There is no shortage of moose antlers around the campground. This is a place you should plan for and stay a couple of days at least. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

We were headed to Beaver Creek but saw this campground and pulled in. We were very pleased with our decision. The owners were very friendly, and the hookups worked well. The WIFI worked well for us, but we were near the office, and the park was not crowded at all. This place is very remote, and it is amazing that they have WIFI at all. As others have stated, power is provided by two generators, and they have to switch them over each day, resulting in a short interrupt in power. I would recommend that you find out the time that they will be making the switch and have your sensitive electrical equipment (microwave, etc) unplugged at that time (or get a good surge protector). The background noise of the generators was not a problem for us. All in all this was a great place to stay. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

You're in the Yukon, don't expect the fancy parks of Disney World. The owner is very knowledgable of the Yukon and lives here year round. He often takes guests on a his WW II truck into the forest across the highway. On our journey we saw 4 grizzlies. We also learned a lot from him. He pointed out the route of the original 4" pipeline between Whitehorse and Fairbanks. We walked on what is left of an original Alaskan Highway wooden bridge, and saw a log building used by the postal delivery teams when they used dog sleds. The park, like many in the Yukon, depends on its our generators. It runs from 4pm to check out time, which is typical. It supplies up to 30A of service. We stayed in a 45-foot MH with no problems. We'd stay here again. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

We drove by several campgrounds along this stretch of the Alaska Highway and chose to stay here because it looked like a campground instead of a gravel pit. It actually had some shady sites and grass. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. After leaving the campground, some 40 miles down the road: our motorhome broke down and they organized a tow truck and mechanic to come out to rescue us. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice park in a scenic location. The biggest negative about this park though is the generator that has to run all day and night to supply power to all of the facilities. Then in the morning they will switch from a smaller generator to a larger one, which will cause your power to drop out and restart everything in your rig. The owners are friendly and accommodating. There is a nightly communal fire pit and Bob the owner has a never ending string of stories and information about the area. The helicopter that works out of the park was not a distraction, but an interesting side show. I would stay here again. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

This camp had clean restrooms and grounds, friendly host, and great mountain views. If you miss this park you missed a great place to stay in the Yukon. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Truck Camper.

This eclectic little park was one of our favorites on The Alaska Highway. Beautifully situated in a valley nestled upon against some mountains with friendly, colorful hosts. Pay showers were small, but very clean as were restrooms. There is no a single "Do Not" sign on this property and, yet, everything seemed to function fine. Evening campfire and possibility of searching for wildlife in their huge military jeep. We would stay here again. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.
