We stopped here on a whim and ended up staying two nights. This park is a real gem in terms of the physical beauty of it's location, and even more important, it affords access to the top notch facilities of the Kenai Princess Lodge. The views are breathtaking, and the cuisine is excellent. We really hated to leave! Sites are spacious, and the park is clean, quiet, and well-run. We've been on a number of Princess cruises, and the level of service in the restaurant compared well. The park is a little hard to find, but the directions in the Milepost are great.
Very nice campground overall. The sites are spacious and the trees provide plenty of shade, but do not interfere with slide-outs. Only a few sites have full hook-ups. Only complaint was the trains in the middle of the night, but that's a fact of life in Talkeetna.
A really wonderful experience! This is a multi-generational family operation run by really nice people. Sites are level, spacious, and easy to maneuver in and out of. The view of the Kenai River from the observation deck is a huge bonus. Rest rooms and showers (no charge) were among the best and cleanest we found on our trip.
We had booked the last three days of the season. They called us to tell us they were going to close two days early. We had plenty of time to book the other nights elsewhere, so we appreciated the advance notice. The park was spacious, and we had a beautiful beach front site. Weather was really bad the night we were here, so we paid the price of being out on the spit by being buffeted around by high winds. Probably would have been less of a problem if there were more motorhomes around us. Location is everything, but the price is pretty high for what you actually get. Wi-Fi was marginal. They say it only works in the office and certain sites. We had it, but it was pretty weak. Sites are level, hookups are top notch. If you can walk a mile each way, shopping and dining are within walking distance.
Cramped and noisy. We paid for two nights, but left after the first, sleepless one. Located conveniently to Bishop Beach, but that's not much consolation after a bad night. Permanent residents are messy and one was banging on the tailgate of his pickup at 6:30 AM. The pub across the street is a real negative if you want to sleep. This was our ONLY bad experience in Alaska.
