Basically a gravel parking lot. Sites are level. They are close, but not too tight. Picnic tables. Laundry. Location is very close to the harbor. Relatively quite location except for the road bikers with kids who came in late and let their kids scream, yell and play very late at night. Some sites allow campfires. Great views when the fog lifts. Easy access to boats and stores for tours. Easy walking distance to ocean. Staff were friendly enough and provided information on things to do in the area. WiFi worked okay, but went down a couple times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is just about a perfect park. Friendly staff, reasonable rate, level sites, good internet access, and lots of trees and flowers. A few blocks' walk will take you to the visitor center, restaurants, the harbor front, and a grocery store. Having slightly larger spaces would make it perfect. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is like a big gravel parking lot, sites are small, but it is very clean, has great services, and is within walking distance of downtown Valdez and the waterfront. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this park. We stayed an extra night because we liked it so much. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
True to commercial campgrounds throughout Alaska, this was no more than a gravel parking lot with hookups. We were VERY close to the campers beside us. The location is GREAT: just beside the small boat harbor. Restrooms and showers were very very good. Internet was terrible. Signal was too weak and will be that way unless they put up an outside antennae. You cannot beat it for location and for price. We qualified for Military Discount and it was a nice percentage. Thank you! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though it's a gravel lot, without grass or trees, it is within walking distance to the waterfront, shopping and restaurants. Of the others here in Valdez, we feel this is the best one and are happy with our pull-in site. Sites are close together and very open. We stayed 3 days and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Just a big gravel parking lot, like all the parks in town, but everything worked, including the WiFi. It's a very friendly place, close to the harbor. This will be our choice in Valdez next time we come. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed 2 nights here cause we loved the town. Location of RV park wonderful -- just across street from small boat harbor!! We took Stan Stephens Glacier/Wildlife cruise and that was great! Drive to/from Valdez so gorgeous!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the best park in Valdez. It is directly across from the Marina where most Glacier tours originate. Restaurants are just up the street and the scenery is awesome. The Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well. The staff was friendly. Owned by Dad and ran by family members. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In all fairness, Bear Paw looked like the other campgrounds in Valdez; more like a used RV lot than a campground. Pretty ugly. Very unfortunate since Valdez is such a lovely town. The hosts were very nice, the restroom/showers were clean and the sites were level, but these things can't compensate for the ugly parking lot appearance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a parking lot with close sites. The 30 amp electric was very poor for our 40' motorhome. The restrooms were reasonably clean but saw people come in off the street to use them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel parking lot, not much space between sites. Cable was only working in half the park. Short walk across the street to Stan Stephens cruise. Showers clean and free, however they close for cleaning between 10 am and noon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large parking lot in downtown area with relatively narrow gravel sites. Fishing village ambiance, and right in the middle of everything, directly across street from small boat harbor. Good wifi and great cable tv selection. Surrounded by mountains. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
