Considering where you are, this is a very nice Big Rig suitable RV park. We stayed on the lower level and had no issues with power (& I use a Progressive EMS). I did hear an occasional truck on the highway but it wasn't bad at night. The wifi worked very well. They allowed us 1 gig usage for our 3-night stay. They have cable which is nice since satellite TV probably won't connect this far north. This campground has an RV wash, pet wash station, and an oil change pad. All three of those are seldom seen. My only complaint is sites are pretty close together. We were in the pull thrus and sites were about 55' long with about 10' between units. Your unit will open up to the door of the unit next to you with a shared picnic table. Bell cell phone coverage was good. Depending on how others park their tow cars, you might have an easy in/out or you might have to ask someone to move their car. Generally, I think you'll get in & out okay. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here in a 34 ft motorhome pulling a 16 foot cargo trailer. They put us in the lower end and the south end of the parking pattern. Plenty of room for both the MH and trailer. Staff was a family operation. Very friendly, helpful, and courteous. They provided on site vehicle maintenance, wash facility, tours of local area and even currency exchange and very good rate. They gave generous fuel discount from already good local prices with overnight stay. They included 300 Meg of Wi-Fi with overnight stay. We also stayed here on return trip north in June. Planning travel plans on staying here on return trip south on Alaska Highway in August. Very good value for the money. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is not a Good Sam anymore, but she honored it. Laundry is out of service. Planes fly overhead and traffic is near. However they are friendly and helpful and the campsite was clean, and safe. They do have some upper lots away from the road, but we pulled in late with no reservations. Beggars can't be choosers. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice park in which to stay for a night or two, but I wouldn't consider it to be a destination. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the campground offers every service imaginable for RV'ers. (Extremely rare in the Yukon) We stayed for two nights in the lower area. All utilities worked quite well. WiFi signal was strong, but throughput was slow, however it is satellite based, so there you have it. There was some road noise, but I wouldn't call it excessive. A few planes flew overhead, but again, nothing excessive. All in all a very convenient place to spend a couple of days. Whitehorse offers some interesting sites. It is the Capitol of the Yukon an hosts the largest percentage of the population for the entire territory. Worth some exploring. Many caravans stop here, so reservations are recommended.

This park has very low voltage and does not think it is a problem. Our surge protector constantly tripped when voltage dropped below 104 volts. We monitor our usage and never went over 20 amps. Also laundry room was closed for repairs with no estimate of when it would be open. These issues are a shame as the everything else seemed fine. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lower section just a parking lot with full hookups and highway noise. We liked the treed area up the hill with large, private sites with water, cable TV and 30 amp. No wifi or restroom/shower without a longish walk down the hill. RV wash was used. Laundry not available at this time. Staff very friendly and helpful. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here in a 38' Motorhome with a toad. Long easy access gravel site was low in the front requiring blocks under jacks. Stable 30 amp elec. with good water. Staff is very friendly and courteous. Pioneer offers a $.03 per ltr fuel discount. Internet is limited to 300mb per day but is fast. Easy access to Alaskan Highway. Good high pressure car wash is available. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a gravel parking lot with hook-ups. Easy in, easy out. Having said that I thought for a stop on the Alcan & access to Whitehorse, it was fine. Utilities work well, bathrooms were very clean, the camp store has a very good selection of things a camper might need, including some sewer parts, etc. They also sell propane & gas/diesel at a reasonable price. We would stay againThe people are very nice & I'm glad we stayed here. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here twice, once heading north and a month and a half later, heading south. Both times we found the staff pleasant and helpful. The sites are a little tight, but easy enough to get in and out of. A great feature of this park is that they provide discounted fuel on site, have a very good wash facility and on-site repair/maintenance facilities.

There are no trees or grass on the sites. The park is right on the highway, but we did not notice any highway noise and it was nice to have easy access to Whitehorse. We would stay stay here again. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are pull-through level dirt and easy to get to. We had a little trouble with low voltage that tripped our surge protector a couple of times. We have not had this issue before or since. They limit the Wi-Fi usage to 300 MB per day (can purchase more) but we found that was plenty for checking email and catching up on Facebook. The host were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Motorhome.

First thing you need to know about this park is the two sections it has. Lower level right on the highway is a gravel parking lot style full hookup area, upper level is about 200 meters back and up in the woods, where the sites are W/E but you can stay there as a dry camper too.
We stayed two nights in the upper level, first one dry for 19.85$ (after AAA discount). They have a switchboard in the office to turn off power on your site if you choose to stay dry. Site was level but tight and rather on the short side. We had to move the picnic table and distance from the camper to the fire ring was less than two meters. Privacy was good as there are shrubs and trees around also providing a mostly shaded site. Noise from the highway is still noticeable up here but not to bothersome. The real bummer is no access to the showers or WiFi if you only pay for a dry site. So the second night we opted for W/E hookup in the same upper level site for 29.30 (after AAA discount) only to find out the WiFi is total crap and pretty much useless.
A dump station, RV wash and laundry is available. Campers are offered a few cents discount at the fuel pump inside the park.
We will consider to stay again, preferring a dry site on the upper level. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Truck Camper.

We do not know the rate as we were part of a prepaid caravan. To be fair to this park there are two sections - the caravan section and the nice wooded section on a hillside. This review is about the caravan section. The caravan section is a very large dirt parking lot. Access is through the fuel pumps which can create a backup. The utilities all seemed to function properly (30amp service) with 300 mb of wifi per day which was not usable when the park was full. The restrooms were very clean.

The sites are EXTREMELY TIGHT and perpendicular to the road. This makes even the pullthrus very difficult to maneuver. This also created a backup as three caravans were attempting to enter at the same time. Our slides were within inches of the next unit. There was not room to walk between rigs. These were very very tight. We had a backin site that was not long enough to park our tow vehicle. We had to park a couple hundred yards away in the tent section.

We also stayed here a second time as part of the caravan. This stay we were the only caravan in the park but we were still bunched together even though we there was only 20 of us in an area for 60. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There are numerous tourist traps in and around Whitehorse - they are all worth a visit. Restaurants are OK but we found nothing exceptional. The highlight of Whitehorse for us was the tour of the Yukon Brewery. Bring a growler or buy one of theirs - the beer is delicious.

This park has 2 sections; the lower level has full hookups, but is basically a gravel parking lot. We chose the upper level; up a fairly steep gravel road that leads to nice, roomy sites in the woods. These sites have water & electric (dump available), trees between sites, private, shady and quiet. Several are fairly level and large enough for big rigs. Wi-Fi works in some, ask at office. We would stay again in the upper level area. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed two nights at this park and it was a good place to stop. Sites are very close but hookups are good. They have a good RV/car wash area plus a place you can change your oil if you like. They give you 300MB of wifi per day or 1GB if you stay three nights. Wifi worked fine. You also get a $.03 per litre discount on fuel which is right on site. Convenient to Whitehorse where there is a fair amount of things to see and do. We will stop here on our way back south next month. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy check in, nice friendly staff. large laundry room. Gravel and close together. Packed so full that those who were using the dump station blocked the roads out of the park in the morning. Very crowded. Good for one night one time. Would stay elsewhere. We camped at Pioneer RV Park in a Motorhome.
