Good gravel roads and sites. Our site was a pull-through and almost level. There were a few trees between the sites in our area. Some of the big rig sites were more open. All utilities worked fine, but the electric had to be watched as it was generator power. No TV, but satellite might work in some of the more open sites. Wi-Fi worked fine, but had to log in every 40 min. It was good enough for e-mail and browsing, but could be slow at times. Owner has worked hard to make this a very attractive property. Some nice touches such as the bridge over the pond and old WWII trucks and heavy duty machinery. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Good size sites with full hookups. Wi-Fi was not great but it worked at my site sometimes. More of what we've experienced in Canada. Owner were very nice and they have many things to look at if you want to walk around the park. Old construction equipment, old boat motors and old chainsaws. I would stay here again but will not be coming back this way mainly due to the road as listed below. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are planning to take this route to or from Alaska I would reconsider. The road from destruction Bay to Beaver Creek is a mess and that's being nice. It took us almost 4 hours to drive 99 miles due to the road condition. The people in Beaver Creek told us it the worst they've seen that road in 50 years. I definitely will not be going back that way. Other RVers have told me the road from Dawson City to Chicken is a better road to take.

Beautiful location. Quiet. No cell phone coverage in area. About every 30 minutes we had to enter user name and password on WiFi internet. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

For a campground that is located "off the grid" in the wilderness, this RV Park approaches resort quality. The FHU sites are level, gravel, and well manicured. The social atmosphere is one of the most enjoyable you can encounter on the Alaska Highway, especially with the evening campfire campground gatherings. The grassy airstrip serves as a driving range, airport, and large lawn for the facility...great for walking dogs. Hiking trails in walking distance of campground. Vintage WWII army equipment from the construction of the Alaska Highway is displayed around the campground. Highly recommend others to stay here. Very relaxing, quiet setting. Nice break from the Alaska Highway. We camped at Discovery Yukon Lodgings in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
