What a nice campground. Impeccably maintained. Pull through sites had lush grass, and the back-in sites were under the trees - very nice on warm September days. Beautiful dahlias greeting us as we drove in, although they were put to bed for the winter before we left. Owner was very nice, very friendly. Sites were level; hookups very good; Wi-Fi worked well; restrooms and laundry were very clean. Could not ask for more. We would go out of our way to stay here again.

A very convenient and pleasant campground as we came from Whitehorse and did not want to go into Watson Lake because we were taking the Cassiar Highway. Well wooded, level sites. We had a pull-through. Free firewood as occurs in many Yukon government campgrounds. No hookups, of course. We would stay there again.

Orderly. Everything in its proper place. Well maintained. Rules to keep everything neat and fastidious. I have never seen a campground so organized. All the sites are in even rows, evenly spaced, with hookups all in the proper place (for a standard class A). WiFi efficient and worked well. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Sites were a little close together (although they were adequate and all were perfectly parallel). And they could have been a tad more level. If you like a place with a few quirks, this isn't it. But it is a nice change from the more frequent weird and quirky campgrounds in Alaska and parts of Canada. We would stay there again (unless we were feeling weird).

We enjoyed this campground even though it was simply a stop on the road. Owner was very friendly. Sites were generous and well vegetated perhaps with too many thorny roses. Hookups worked well. Sites could have been more level, but ours was long enough that we could find a place where the front and back were even. The highway was close, but there were enough trees, shrubs, and flowers to hide it quite well. Wi-Fi worked well. We would stay there again.

A great government campground with many sites, including ours, right on a lovely lake. There was not as much vegetation between sites right on the lake, but with that view, it did not matter. No hookups except that it had Wi-Fi that worked fairly well, at $5 for the password, meaning both of our computers and both of two nights all for that price. One of the two sections was closed because of a grizzly bear roaming around, and that made the other section more crowded. Electrical hookups in a number of the lakefront sites are all installed and ready to go but they do not yet have a connection to the grid outside the park. Although it is a convenient place to take off to Stewart and Hyder, it is a worthy campground on its own. We would definitely stay there again

The sites were fairly typical in being somewhat close, but since we were the only ones there our first night, and only two other rigs joined us the second night, it felt very spacious. Our site was next to a spring and there was very attractive fall color vegetation surrounding the campground. Water and electricity were good; we used their dump station on the way out. Wi-Fi was good. This was a good place to stay while we explored Telegraph Creek and its great Canyon. We would stay there again.

Dezadeash Lake Campground is really about 50 km from Haines Junction. It was a very nice campground with no hookups or frills, although it did have free firewood. Our site was right on the lake. It was very windy, but there were low trees that mostly blocked it at the site. We stayed there two nights while driving to Haines to pick up mail in between. But we also explored several trails and lakes in the Kluane National Park; this campground was well situated for that. We liked this campground well enough to stay there again, but there are other appealing Yukon government campgrounds in the area that are also enticing.

We had not planned on staying in Haines Junction until we developed a tow bar problem. The Kluane RV Kampground was the only one in town that was operating in early September so we stayed there. It was pretty good with decent hookups and Wi-Fi available at our site next to the office. Staff was friendly. It was not much more than a parking lot, but the sites were adequate and level enough. If we needed to stay in Haines Junction again, we would probably stay there.

I cannot add much to previous reviews except that the staff was quite friendly and helpful. The "parking lot" aspect was no problem because there was hardly anybody there. We got the Wi-Fi well. We had (and needed) only electricity. The place served its purpose of being a take-off point for McCarthy and Kennicott. The gas pump was very busy, but not a problem. The washers and dryers apparently serve the whole community; when I took a shower, it ran out of hot water very quickly because the washers had used it up. The no hookup sites were very nice, and if we stayed there again, which we would do if visiting McCarthy, we would probably stay in that area.

Rate is 1/2 price senior access. This is a BLM site with no frills. But it is nicely vegetated and sites are well separated. There were about 7 or 8 pull-through sites in our section (1 of 2) - easily accommodated our 36 ft + toad. But a number were not very level. No hookups, of course, and pit toilets. The approximately 1 mile gravel road into the campground is a bit rough, but OK when we took it slow. There is an associated boat launch and large lake. We liked it. A warning about gas - the Milepost book says there is gas in Paxson. Not any more; out of commission. Nearest gas is about 30 miles up Denali Highway. The paved Richardson highway getting here from Glennallen was quite wavy and deteriorated. We would gladly stay at Paxson Lake again if we were willing to brave the Richardson Hwy with a large RV and toad. It worked at 30-35 mph. A camper or untowed RV would probably be OK on the Hwy.

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.

A very big gravel park. The sites were adequate size, but many of the campers had boats as well as trucks and RVs, so there was not much maneuvering room. We had a back corner site which protected us on two sides, but on the side in front, someone decided to park a boat trailer; at least it was far enough in front that we could get the toad in and out. The staff was friendly, the hookups were good, the Wi-Fi worked adequately. The showers were clean. It was conveniently located. Everything was pretty good if you like an RV city. We might stay there again.

This was a pretty good park for an overnight. Gravel sites were level; our hookups were at the tail end of our back-in site - OK for us, but maybe not others. Pull-throughs were separated better than the back-ins. Staff was friendly; one couple was learning, but the third person very efficient and knowledgeable. Showers were good, but few. No laundry - we were referred to the town laundromat. We would stay there again for a night.

This small park is very nice (for Alaska). The sites are decent size; hookups worked well for us (site 9), but we could see that some sewer drains were tall or less well placed. It was peak sockeye season (end of July first of Aug) and the camp was completely full on the weekend. A bonus is that RV campers can use the hot tub up on the hill above the Princess Lodge, with a $5 refundable key deposit. We took showers up there after hot tubbing and did not use the pay ones in the park. Staff was friendly. We stayed four nights on our way south towards Homer and again one night as we headed north. Perhaps a bit pricey, but worth it.

A nice place to spend a night. Sites were adequate sized. Might be a bit tight if full, but it wasn't. Hookups were good and we got Wi-Fi at the site (we pull in pretty well). They provide guests with a "special" inexpensive, very good breakfast of bacon, scrambled eggs, and pancakes. The rest of the menu was a bit pricey. While at breakfast, I was able to see some mountain sheep high on the hills across the road. Actually, there were nice views in every direction. We would stay there again.

Rate reflects Senior access pass discount. We thought this a great U.S. Forest Service park (thanks to rvparksreviews for telling us about it). We had our RV in a long, paved, level, pull through site with a good view of waterfalls from a glacier ("Middle Glacier"?). But the best view is as you turn into the park from the highway. Near glaciers and spawning salmon streams. Just an excellent place to stay. Some sites can apparently be reserved, but most others cannot. We stayed 2 nights and would do it again.

This park is an adjunct to a gas station, but it has marvelous views of the water and (weather permitting) the mountains and the glaciers in two directions. We had a great, level site, with good hookups. Wi-Fi was adequate. If you want to be left to your own, this is the park. All of their attention is on the gas station and deli. But things worked and the trash bins were emptied. We stayed 4 nights while enjoying Homer. It is not on the spit, but a short drive - and quiet. We would stay there again.

A super RV Park, but quite small. Wonderful, friendly owners who really took care of us. We stayed 3 days on the way to Homer and one day on the way back. The first time, it was too cloudy to see the great mountains across the inlet, but the scenery was still spectacular with all the waving, blooming fire weed, bluffs, and such. On our way back, we could see the mountains - awesome. Sites were good, with enough space. We had water and electricity and used their dump. Some sites have sewer. There were only two showers, but they actually had bathtubs with them. My wife loves baths and was in heaven. One caution: they close fairly early, perhaps in late August this year. We were there on Aug 14, and the owner was getting things ready for the winter.

This state park was remote, very attractive, and had lots of mosquitoes (more than lots). The sites are all dry and back in; perhaps 1/4 would accommodate our 36 ft RV. Only pit toilets and no showers. We found a lovely site and were able to get level and stayed two nights. Could hardly see the people in the next site for all the vegetation. A hike to beach was great and the tidal fluctuation fascinating.

We chose to dry camp because we could be right on the water with our front window having a great view of the bay and the mountains on the far side. There were a number of birds on the water, which was nice. Our spot was level and wide enough for the toad by the side. The sites were clearly marked. There was a fire pit in front of us. It was close, but we enjoyed our three nights there. Cannot comment on hookups or bathrooms; we did not use them. We got Wi-Fi at downtown coffee shops. We would definitely stay there again.

Rate based upon weekly rate divided by 7. What a relief it was to get out of cramped Denali village and into an open, pleasant RV Park. Actually, it was still a large gravel parking lot, but uncrowded with decent sized spaces, and they tried to spread people out as much as possible. The sites had only water and electric, and they gave us a site that would "probably" get WiFi (it did fine) The people were extremely friendly. They took people fishing every Monday if anybody wanted. There was a nice potluck on July 4 with the hosts providing the main dishes. The showers were spotless - cleaned after every use. We were delighted with the space, the people and the setting. And it was only 27 miles from Denali Park. Now if they could just have smaller gravel in their gravel parking lot, it would all be wonderful. We would definitely stay there again.

We signed up for three days (no refunds) when we arrived fairly early, before the crowds came. This is a gravel parking lot capable of having about 40 sites. But they had 85 sites cramped into it. Fortunately, we got there early in the day, so, although we had to wait for someone at the dump station to stop blocking one road, we were able to maneuver around the semi truck parked immediately behind our site delivering to the adjacent stores. And only one neighbor was already there. By moving tables and using caution, we were able to get our slide out. But the second and third days, there were adjacent pickup trucks that blocked our way out because they would not fit in their site and our toad was out in the park. We managed to squeeze the toad in, and simply waited until our neighbors left in the morning to get out. And if that was not tight enough, a caravan of bog rigs came in and blocked most of the two interior roads. WiFi and hookups worked; they had showers. Not much more to say. If you really, really love your neighbors, stay here. We won't again.

A very nice place, but we still were not used to the high prices of the northern lands, so our initial reaction was not great. But they were very friendly, helpful, and got us directed towards needed RV repair (not easy to find). Sites were somewhat better than just adequate. Hookups were good, Wi-Fi worked well. Showers were far away, but nice. We would stay there again.

We found this place through RV park reviews. And we are glad we did. It is more of a lodge with cabins than a campground. The campground area is very large grassy area, but is fairly undefined. It has no designated spaces (but lots of tables) and the owner suggested an area to park where he could run an electric cord from the lodge; unsure if it was 15 or 20 amps, but worked for us. There is no "dump station" but we were shown where the septic pipe was and we dumped there easily. It is a lovely lodge with furs draped over the easy chairs. The bathhouse was very clean and attractive. The owner was very friendly and talked about his plans to upgrade: he used to teach construction and bought this place in retirement. The WiFi was only supposed to reach inside the lodge (and customers invited to use the lodge facilities to access it), but we were able to pull it in from our RV. Despite the limited utilities (the only reason for not giving it a 10), we had a very nice night. We would definitely stay here again.

A very pleasant RV park on Willow Creek. Because they got their WiFi repaired between when we talked to them and when we arrived, we were able to get a site overlooking Willow Creek away from the main building. Very quiet, peaceful and scenic. It had only water and electric at the site, which was enough - we dumped on the way out after 3 days. While most sites were in the Alaskan gravel parking lot style, ours was a back in with vegetation, between two cabins - the park was not crowded and we could choose our site. The gravel sites seemed OK, too. Owners/staff were friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers were nice and clean. We would definitely stay there again.

They would not take reservations for summer solstice weekend, but they told us on the phone that if we got there early we should get a site. So at 2 PM there was a site available for 2 nights, and maybe something would become available for the 3rd and 4th nights we wanted. We clearly indicated that our motor home was 36 ft with toad, but the back in site hardly accommodated the RV. And we had to maneuver around other rigs and extra parked cars and pickups to get it barely in. This is one of the two most cramped parks I have ever been in, in 50,000 miles of RVing. That having been said, the hookups were fine, the Wi-Fi worked well. The site was level. The adult staff were friendly (there were younger folks who were just "there"). Showers were pretty good, although only four for a rather large park resulted in regular waiting. We ended up staying 6 nights so that we could deal with certain issues and explore the area around Fairbanks. We probably would not stay there again unless we knew there were not many others.

Our first commercial park in Alaska, and we thought the price was high, with only water & electric; we found out later that it was not that high - for Alaska. We had a decent, level pull through site with small trees between us and the adjacent sites. They had a propane barbecue along our row (and other places) for anyone who wanted to use it. And they provided entertainment (Alaskan "bluegrass" when we were there - or, for an extra price, dogsled demonstrations). We were disappointed that the "free" Wi-Fi was only a "token" good for 4 hours, but we got one for each computer and each of two days. Then we found that somehow we were not kicked off the first day. And the staff gave us an extra one for the second day (the owner was admonishing them not to give them away, but their kids gave them out anyway when Mom was not looking). So we ended up not having to pay extra for WiFi needed for my work. They had an RV wash, but it was rather expensive. And early in the season, they were long lines of fancy motor homes who had to wash off the AlCan dust and dirt. We took our toad to the Chevron station for much less.

Rate was half price with senior access pass. A BLM campground with no services beyond pit toilets. It was a pretty campground with nice, level sites, but only two seemed big enough for our 36 ft class A. It was on the "40 Mile River" but we could not see it for the dense vegetation. The mosquitoes in early June were almost as dense as the vegetation; we stayed inside mostly. But after coming across the scary, dusty, rough Top of the World highway from Dawson, it was a welcome relief. We had thought we would make it to Chicken, but enough was enough, and this was a good stop.

This is a big gravel and dirt "park". Our site was adequate and level. Hookups were good. I got Wi-Fi on my better computer; my wife got intermittent WiFi; it was slow because there are no high speed lines in Dawson City (was told they stopped about 100 miles short of the area). It could get dusty - at one very windy point, I tried to point out the office to someone who had come in the back way, but I could not see it. Staff here was very friendly and helpful. There was no cell phone reception and I had to make a work-related conference call, so they set me up with a land line in an empty motel room (charged to a phone card) and it worked very well. Then we parked for two additional nights (for $10) while we took our toad up the Dempster highway. The physical experience was only adequate, but they were so nice, we would definitely stay here again.

A small, pretty good campground. A little hard to figure out where and where to go in to register - inside the hotel lobby, the RV sites are behind the hotel. Staff very friendly. Site was adequate, quite level, had grass, and a good view of the Yukon River. Hookups were good; Wi-Fi OK, but extra. Not many people there, so it felt pretty open. We stayed one night and would stay there again.

Price includes hot springs admission. Great primitive campground. Our site (and others) quite adequate for 36 foot class A; nicely wooded separation between them. No hookups, of course. But easy walk to the Liard Hot Springs which we did before dinner, after dinner, and after breakfast. Loved the hot springs; liked the campground very much. Would definitely stay here again.

A nice campground, but next to noisy road. Fortunately, we have good soundproofing. Check-in was perfunctory. Gravel, level sites that were a little close. Good hookups and good WiFI (why we selected it). Probably good for kids with lake and playground. We would stay here again if we needed hookups.

Not much to add. Very basic. Somewhat difficult to navigate to site with a 36 ft plus toad even after getting through all the potholes and bumps to get to the office. Hookups were fine; WiFi was fine. We stayed two nights so we could explore surrounding area and the magnificent chain saw sculptures of Chetwynd. We would probably stay here again, but only for a night.

More spacious than most in Alaska. Lots of grass, but few trees (they are only in the part without full hookups). Strong WiFi (a "must" for us), but office is largely unattended and we had to ask other campers to find out the password. All-in-all a pleasant campground. We would definitely stay here again.

In the middle of nowhere (between towns), but a nice wooded area with passable sites and electric and water. But the electric is on generator only during the day. Wi-Fi worked for my good computer, but weak for my wife's. Very friendly people and excellent cinnamon buns - with cute "star trek" advertising signs on highway. High priced gas if you really needed it. We would stay there again if we did not need to dump. They were talking about selling or closing, after three generations in the same family.

An interesting place. We were directed to a site, even though it was mostly empty, that we would not have chosen. But it was OK and reasonably level. Hookups were fine. WiFi worked well. They have a nightly buffet with salmon, ribs,and other items, along with salad, vegetables in drinks. Eating is mostly outside under cover. We were at the tail end the first night, and owner fired up everything and we ate well. The second night we ate there again and talked to others. There are regulars who stop to and from Alaska every year. We would probably stay there again, but maybe we would try a more normal place.
