This is a beautiful park in the Thompson Pass about 25 miles outside of Valdez. There are only two or three spots that will accommodate 40' but if you can get #7 you are one lucky camper! This spot is right on the lake and there is plenty of room for your towed beside your rig, even with slides extended. If you have to make the loop a second time, the left turn by the restrooms is tight but doable. The good news is the rainbow and grayling fishing is excellent. The bad news is all the good fish are on the opposite side of the lake from the campsites. If you have a small boat or tube be prepared to catch fish until your arm is tired! Would not suggest trying to walk to the other side as there are definitely bears in the locale. Restrooms are very clean but take your own paper! We camped here over the fourth of July and it was still a quiet place! Take the small hiking trail adjacent to spot #9 up to the top of the ridge for a magnificent view. If this place had elec it would be a 10+!
Bear Paw II has the cleanest restrooms/showers you will find this side of The Northern Lights in Dawson Creek! Each restroom/shower has its own room with a sink and rugs on the floor with plenty of free hot water. The washers are $1.50 per load and the dryers are $1.50 for 30 minutes. If you pull in you will be looking at either the bay or small boat harbor. Be prepared to pass your hookups under your rig if you pull in as they are set up for left side access. This park is very quiet with friendly staff. The only reasons it does not get a 10 is the price and hookup difficulty. Don't forget to make a trip to Allison Point during high tide to watch the bears!
Easy pull through sites accommodate towed without unhooking. $.03 per liter fuel price reduction. RV power wash area (1 loonie for 3 minutes) and oil change area. Convenient hookup locations. Stable 120 VAC power and good water. Didn't use cable TV so don't know about that. Office staff very friendly and helpful. They will book tours for you and arrange for tour bus to pick you up at the park. Level gravel spots that do not get muddy when it rains. Wi-Fi very good in #61, where we parked. You are limited to 250mb of data per 24 hours but if you ask and they are not full they will give you more. We will stay here again.
Site #14 has a beautiful view of the lake with no road noise. We were here on 14 May 2014 and the lake was still mostly frozen so we didn't see any moose! Bring your own water. It is pretty rusty thus we did not hookup. Wi-Fi was weak in our spot. I-Pad would not hook up but laptop did capture a signal. Power was a little low, (117vAC 30 amp). Would stay here again if we are in area when lake is not frozen.
There is a sign on the door to the laundry/shower/restroom building that says "no street shoes allowed beyond this point". When I entered I totally understood why. These are the nicest glass enclosed shower stalls I have ever seen in a campground. The laundry room was also immaculate and their prices are very reasonable on washers and dryers. Check-in staff was very friendly and helpful. Spots are large, most are pull through, but they are gravel. Water, elec, and sewer hookups are located for easy access and power was 120vAC with no fluctuations during our two day stay. Wi-Fi was strong and very fast. The young couple that own this park now are working hard to add improvements. Trees have been planted, landscaping is in progress and grass is planned. We will stay here every time we are in Dawson Creek.
Quiet location with no road noise. Check in staff were pleasant and helpful. Store was well stocked and prices were reasonable. Sites are small with two rigs parked side by side in pull-through sites. There is ample room to extend slides if both parties are courteous in their parking. Our neighbor had problem with 30 amp breaker tripping at less than 20 amps. Breakers appear to be old and some may be weak. We had no problems with ours when we were pulling 25 amps. It was below freezing at night and with all the electric heaters running voltage would drop to around 110 VAC. Wi-Fi was very strong in our spot (A-31). We would stay here again.
Park was easy to find with GPS coordinates. Office staff friendly but not very knowledgeable about available services. We were charged full price even though water and sewer not available. Dump station easy to access but does not accommodate tanks with flush systems. 30 amp dropped to 112 VAC in the morning when everyone had their electric heaters operating. Wi-Fi strong and fast. Park was almost full with many permanent guests. Would stay here again if water and sewer was operational.
Host is a bit grumpy, but he has been dealing with overnighters for 11 years! Probably gives him some license. They ask to not self park because many of their sewer hookups are not very visible and they don't want us driving over them. Very easy pull through access. Stable 120 VAC power with 30 amps. Good water taste and pressure. We would stay here again.
Management very helpful and friendly with several recommended sights to see in the area. Back in spot accommodated our 38' RV and our towed. Easy access to all hook-ups. Because it was snowing during our stay we, didn't see much of the grounds. Owner turned water off at night when temps fell below freezing. No problem with this as we didn't want our hose to freeze any more than he did his pipes. As soon as temps were above freezing in the morning water was back on. At least they had water available at the site. Several place we have stayed this spring have not turned water on by 1 May. We would stay here again.
