The park itself was nice. Trees, grass, spaced out decent so you aren't right on top of one another. Picnic tables at the sites, etc. But the bathrooms/showers/laundry were really gross. They remind us of an old, public bathroom in a city park. You know the ones you never want to take your kids to? Smell like...yeah. We are on a 5,000 mile trip, and needed to do laundry and wash up... but decided that it all needed to wait until the next stop. If you have a self-contained RV and only need a place to park and hook-up, you are good. If you need to use the amenities, keep driving. We wouldn't stay here again.

WOW! I can not tell you how much this place has improved. We stayed here 3 years ago, on the way to Alaska. There isn't much in the Fort Nelson area, so it was really this or nothing, particularly early in the year before the real season starts. We were dreading staying here, as it was the worst spot we stayed at on our trip up 3 years ago. It was like a completely different park. The showers/bathrooms that we used in the main building were VERY clean, looked freshly painted. The camp area was clean, and had fresh gravel. When we got up in the morning, there were ladies cleaning the already-clean bathrooms, and workers out raking and tidying and working on the property. We loved being able to have a fire in the pit, and were able to get firewood right there. We stayed mid-May, and the water was on at the sites. We *would* stay here again if we traveled up the AlCan again some day.

We stopped through here traveling down the AlCan. The camp host was extremely friendly and helpful, great guy. The bathrooms/showers were VERY clean and nice, even smelled good and had oldies music playing. The rv park itself is level and gravel. It isn't really "park-like" but it is a decent place to stay, close to the signpost forest.

We stopped at this park as we were traveling through Whitehorse. It was early in the season, and our favorite place was still closed. We got the last space in this small RV park, and it seemed to be the last one in Whitehorse. The bathrooms were EXTREMELY CLEAN and pleasant (like being in a house's bathroom), though small. There are two bathroom/shower combos for the park. I wouldn't really call it a park, as it really just looked like hook-ups were added in the hotel parking lot as an after thought. The internet worked well. The water was still turned off, so all we had was electric. It would have been nice to know there was no water when we checked in, as that wasn't mentioned. In all, if you are driving through and need electric and clean bathrooms/showers/laundry - then it is a good option.

We traveled from North Carolina to Alaska, and this was our favorite RV park that we stayed at. The staff was friendly; gift shop was nice. Book swap was very large. We stayed in a spot along the back row, with woods behind us. The site was very shaded, plenty of room, and level. The bathrooms were VERY clean, with blow dryers in the wall, and even fresh flowers in vases on the counter in the ladies' shower. We found the Wi-Fi to be the fastest Wi-fi we had seen on our whole trip. There was firewood available, which we used. We loved it. There was a display of old army equipment along the front of the park. We would definitely stay here again. I can't find our receipt, but we paid around $32 for a family of 5 with 2 dogs - Good Sam Club honored.

We had this place recommended to us at a previous RV park. "When you get to Watson Lake, stay at Tags. It's not fancy, but it's clean and it's cheap." After paying through the nose for some really lousy places, we're all for clean & cheap. Our purpose for stopping in Watson Lake was to visit the signpost forest, which was RIGHT across the street. The bathrooms/shower building was the biggest surprise. The building was big, and CLEAN, and new. Each side (men/women) had a brand new washer (Front loading, high capacity) & 2 dryers in each. After the last place we had stayed, we LOVED it. And the fact that it had Wi-Fi, was even more of a pleasant surprise. Like the old guy that told us. It is simple, clean, and doesn't cost much. We would stay again.

We stayed here while traveling through to Alaska. The place was a little pricey, but considering the location, we thought it was acceptable. We paid a total of $61.60 for a family of 5. The staff let us walk down and pick which site we wanted, and then come up and let them know. We picked one with a view of the water (cost a little more, but nice.) Yes, it was back-in, and we did have to use our leveling blocks for our camper, but no biggy. The view was beautiful; loved watching the float planes and walking the shore. We didn't eat in the restaurant because it was a bit pricey for our family, and we already had a cooler full of food. We would stay here again. We thought it was very, very nice.

We stayed here one night while traveling through. The standard rate is $25, additional for children & pets. We paid a total of $33.60 (family of 5 with 2 dogs) with the Good Sam Club discount. The bathrooms & showers were very clean. Need your own towels and soap though. The laundry room was also clean. It closes around 10pm, I believe. The lady running the park was reserved, but friendly. The sites were nice enough, fairly level. Internet wasn't reliable unless you are right up by the office. We weren't. The pool was clean, great to swim in. the only negative thing, was we were continually swarmed by yellowjackets. No one was stung. Just a warning for anyone that may be allergic. Over all the park was very nice. We would stay here again.

We stayed here while traveling through. Overall, we really liked this park. It is a bit more primitive. There is electric hook-ups, but no water. Water is located on the island portion, by hand pump. Bathrooms are pit-toilets, but were clean. No showers. The rate was only $25.00 for an electric site. No extra fees for having children, (A bonus!) The sites are level and VERY large. The park was quiet, with the exception of the traffic on the metal bridge, but a rumbling sound that wasn't too bothersome. A gentleman came around selling firewood, shortly after we were settled in. We loved staying here. The attendant and the firewood guy were both very friendly. There are walking paths, riverfront to fish. We would stay here again.

We stayed here while traveling through. The park is rather cramped. There is no real area to walk a dog. The park is gravel, sties fairly level, but when it began to rain that afternoon it was MUD, MUD, MUD. The showers are located at the shower/bathroom building and at the main building. The shower building had muddy rugs in the shower. Building looked like it was falling apart. No toilet paper (thankfully we had our own.) I tried to take a shower in the main building, because it was clean, (pay showers) and there was NO HOT WATER. Probably why they were clean. The laundry room was over-flowering with old laundry that people had left, not picked up. Many of the machines didn't work. Over all it wasn't a very good experience. We wouldn't stay here again.

This was our first stay in Canada. The park is along the river, and has a man-made naturally-fed swimming area nearby. Great scenery, very pretty. The bathrooms were pit toilets, but clean. They have two coin-operated showers, that we did not use. The attendant was very nice, very friendly. The only downside to the park, is the active railroad tracks along the park, and directly across the river. But we still slept well, and the trains didn't really bother us. Seeing the salmon running in the morning was worth it! We would definitely stay again.

We stayed at this park while traveling through. The staff was friendly, park was nice. There is more than one bathroom/shower. We used the one at the main building. It was clean and nice. Had a blow-dryer on the wall. We paid a total of $44.10 to stay. The rate of $35.10 (GSC) and then an additional $9.00 for our children. No charge for our dogs. We ate at a restaurant nearby. The park was nice. LOTS of mosquitos (welcome to Alaska) but they went away as it got dark. We would stay again.

We stayed at this park one night while traveling from NC to AK. The park was clean, spaces were decent-sized. We did have a hard time leveling our pop-up. The rate we paid, was $35.75 (Good Sam Club) plus an additional $9 because we have three children, for a total of $44.75 with tax. I can never understand why parks that cater to families, charge you more for being one. But overall, the park was nice, clean, quiet. Bathrooms had passcodes. Pet area was the grassy area outside the park itself.

We stayed at this park one night while traveling through the state of SD. We had the great misfortune of traveling through the week of the big "Sturgis" biker rally. The staff seemed annoyed that we wanted to stay here. (Not much of a choice because of the rally.) The park increased its rate to $50.50 (plus an additional $6 for our children) and did not accept any club discounts. The place was packed, sites were small. The internet did not work. The showers didn't drain, and flooded that portion of the bathroom. People were smoking in the bathrooms. It was not a pleasant experience. In all, we wish we had kept on driving to look for another place to stay. With all the bikes, it was very noisy most of the evening. (We aren't bike-haters, actually have our own HD as well) but it just wasn't worth what we paid. If we ever traveled through again, it would not be the week of Sturgis, and I think we would look for a different place.

We stayed here while traveling through South Dakota. I think of all the RV parks we stayed at on our long trip from North Carolina to Alaska, this was the nicest state-side RV park we stayed at. The staff was very friendly, the sites were well-shaded, pool was clean, and lots to do there at the park, in addition to all the things to see in nearby Mitchell. I don't have anything negative at all to say. If we ever traveled through again, we would definitely stay here again. It was truly family-friendly. Unlike some we stayed at.

We stayed here one night while traveling through MT. Staff was very friendly. Bathrooms and such were nice and clean. The total we paid to stay was $30.50 was the standard rate, plus an additional $13 for our three children. $46.55 all together with tax. There are bikes and such to rent, a small pool, ice cream social in the evening. Internet actually worked, which was a pleasant change of pace.

We stayed here while traveling through MN. The lady running the office was incredibly friendly and pleasant. The rate we paid, $22 + 4.68 was for non-residents. We had intended on staying on the island itself, but the lady wanted us of the massive mosquito population, and recommended the new one. It was very nice, bathroom/shower rooms were big and clean. Spaces were nices and large. Loved the park. If we ever travel through again, we would definitely stay here. But bring the bug spray!

This park was rather memorable. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. Sites had no shade at all though, so it was quite hot. Like another reviewer stated, the sites were very close together. We got the impression that most of the RVs here, were residents. It felt more like a retirement community than an RV park. The amount we paid, $51.73 was the standard rate of $33.15, an additional $16.58 because we have children, and another $2.00 for our dog. After dark though, is what was so memorable. Many of the residents were sitting outside, drinking wine. Okay, fine. Until the manager came over to talk to us, and she was highly intoxicated. We really didn't need to know the things she shared, nor did our children. We were told that she was leaving and a new manager was taking over. Probably a good thing. Don't think we would stay here again.

Campground was pretty quiet, though there wasn't much shade where we were. Spots along the lake had much more shade, but those spots are very limited, and rather small. We were supposed to have a pull-through space, but it wasn't. There is a lake with a beach, paddle boats, etc. Nearby is a riding stable, boat dock, etc. Smith Lake is open to the public.
