Gold Trail RV Park, Clinton, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely landscaped campground full of flowers and vegetable plants even in August. We were assigned a long pull thru 30 amp FHU site. The owner's schtick had us upset at first as we pulled into our site but upon further conversation, we realized that it is all an act and he was very friendly. We did not use the bathhouse or laundry and cannot comment on cell service as we had our devices off in Canada. Did not use the campground wifi. We did eat dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed a good meal. It we had any complaint, it would be some tree trimming is in order for some of the sites. We would stay here again. We camped at Gold Trail RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Williwaw Campground - USFS, Whittier, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects use of Access Pass. This is the only campground with paving that we stayed at while in Alaska. This is a self check in campground and you pick your own site. Some sites are reserved and will have a tag on the post. We chose a double site and paid a slightly higher fee. Our site was wide, level with no hook ups. Generator hours are generous, lasting most of the day,. Did not use the bathhouse and did not see a laundry. Not near any shopping so plan accordingly. There is a nearby salmon viewing station but the salmon were not running yet. Take a trip over to Whittier. Not much there but the drive through the tunnel is worth the $12 fee. We would stay here again. We camped at Williwaw Campground - USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

Riley Creek Campground (NPS Campground), Denali National Park, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects use of Access Pass. If you have a big rig, this is the place to stay. Sites are marked A, B, or C and the A sites are for big rigs, Some sites are double sites but available to single camper units. We registered the day before so we were able to look for an open site before check out time. We ended up with a double site which was very wide and had plenty of room for our big Dually truck. Our site was not only wide but the sites extend way back from the parking pad for the picnic table and fire pit. This campground has no hook ups and generator hours are 8-10 am and 4-8 pm, Verizon cell and mifi worked well. A laundry is available near the Mercantile. It is pretty pricey and there are more washers than driers which causes a back log. Showers are available for $5, more if you want a towel. We did not use the bathhouse so cannot comment on its cleanliness. Dump station/water fill is one of the best we have ever encountered. There is no diesel fuel near Denali so you have to travel to Healy for fuel. We stayed her 6 nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay, we would stay here again, We camped at Riley Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Cantwell RV Park, Cantwell, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We did not like this campground as much as other reviewers. It is just an outflow field (think big rocks and gravel from a glacier) that someone made into a campground. We made a reservation with the owner and when we checked in, the office staff tried to change our site. Sites are listed as big rig friendly but we were not able to park our truck on site or would it have worked on any site. Did not use the bathrooms or laundry. Water lines are run on the ground and you have to be careful to avoid them when you park. Dump station is situated at the entrance so one must completely exit the campground and drive back in to use the dump station. Do not get fuel at the local stations because it was the highest we encountered in Alaska. We chose this campground because it is within 30 miles of Denali National Park. We would not stay here again. We camped at Cantwell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Town and Country RV Park, Palmer, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is an adequate campground located just outside Palmer near the fairgrounds. The entrance is a bit of a mess with big rocks and pot holes. We had a 50 amp pull thru with FHUs. Site was narrow and close to neighbors. Some long term residents were there but sites were not messy. Verizon cell and mifi worked well. We did not use the laundry or bathhouse so cannot comment on price or condition. Manager was friendly but not on site parts of the day. Anchorage is an easy drive and Palmer provides an alternative to the over priced, cramped campgrounds in Anchorage. We would stay here again. We camped at Town and Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Heritage RV Park, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

This is the most expensive campground we have ever stayed at. We wanted to extend our stay in Homer but could not extend where we were. This campground seems to have everything. The sites right along the bay are set up for motorhomes to pull into so the windshield faces the bay. 5th wheels and travel trailers backing into these sites will have the utilities on the wrong side. We elected to take a pull thru site away from the water. Site was gravel, long, and narrow. 50 amp electric was available along with water and sewer, a rarity in Alaska campgrounds. Nice office with store and little cafe. If you are on a site that allows fires, firewood is delivered to your site. Did not use laundry/bathhouse so cannot comment on their condition. Verizon cell and mifi worked adequately. This campground is located right next to the fishing lagoon on Homer Spit. For us, it was a splurge well worth the money. We would stay here again. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bains' RV Park, Oroville, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We liked this campground very much. The owner is friendly and helpful making our stay very pleasant. Utilities were adequate and site was level. We did not use or check out the bathhouse/laundry. Provided Internet was weak at our site. Campground located up a hill with great views of a lake and hills. Campground is next to a Border Patrol Station but it had very little traffic and had no impact on our stay. There are a couple of things that may be bothersome. The access road to the campground is steep narrow, and gravel but we did not have any issues with the road towing our big 5th wheel. The other issue is the proximity to the Canadian border. One cannot use US cell service because the signal pings off Canadian towers. We had just entered back into the states after a summer trip to Alaska and our rig was filthy. The campground owner allowed us to wash both our truck and 5th wheel which we appreciated. Too bad that this place is way under utilized as there were only a couple other campers. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Bains' RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand View Cafe & RV Park, Glacier View, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We elected to take a premium pull thru site with electric and water only. FHU sites were available. Staff was friendly at check in. Did not use the bathhouse or.laundry. Dump station was available and easy to access. Campground across from mountain with Dall Sheep and a viewing scope is located in the office/restaurant. We could see parts of the Matanuska Glacier from our site. Food in restaurant was nothing special and pricey. We would stay here again. We camped at Grand View Cafe & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Homer / Baycrest KOA, Homer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This campground provided for us the best view of any campground we have ever stayed at. It is located on a cliff outside of Homer and overlooks Katchamek Bay. We had a back in site on the lower level and had spectacular views out our window. Did not use the bathhouse or laundry so cannot comment on them. Verizon. cell/mifi worked fine. Check in is at the gas station located in front of the campground. They sell huge, inexpensive ice cream cones. Short drive to Homer and the Homer Spit. We would stay here again. We camped at Homer / Baycrest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stoney Creek RV Park, Seward, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Another typical Alaska campground with close sites and gravel everywhere. We were in a back-in site for the first couple of days and then moved to a pull-through site. People build their own fire pits according to their whims and we had several on our back-in site with one of them located under our RV. Office staff was friendly and check in was smooth. Did not use the bathhouse or laundry. Verizon cell/MiFi worked fine. This campground is located outside Seward proper but it is not a long drive to town. We would probably stay here again if in the area. We camped at Stoney Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain View RV Park, Palmer, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is a typical Alaska RV park with sites very close together and 30 amp electric. We did not find the owner to be that friendly. We did not use the laundry or bathhouse so cannot comment on price/condition. Verizon cell/MiFi worked adequately. Good Sam discount was available. Nothing really wrong with this campground but nothing great either. We would look for someplace else to stay if we we're in the area again. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Valdez Glacier Campground (Now open to the public), Valdez, Alaska

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a military campground that is also open to the public. Non-military pay a higher camping fee. Only about 12 sites have electric and all are back-ins. Sites and road are big rig friendly. There is a host on site who was friendly and helpful. Lots of warning concerning bears in the campground though we did not see any but bear spray is recommended. Did not use the bathhouse and there is no laundry. Dump station and fresh water fill is available. We chose this campground over the crowded slide to slide campgrounds in town and it is a short drive into Valdez with plenty of parking. Try Old Town Burgers for one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. We would stay here again. We camped at Valdez Glacier Campground (Now open to the public) in a Fifth Wheel.

Downtown RV Park, Watson Lake, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a Good Sam park with a very friendly owner and right now it is the only campground in Watson Lake. We stayed here in June and August. Both times we were assigned a pull thru 30 amp full hook up site. We were so close to our neighbors that our slides were just about touching. WiFi is available while sitting near the office. Did not use the bathhouse or laundry. Everything in town is just a short walk away from the campground. They advertise a free RV wash but their pressure washer is not free and is very expensive to use. The alternate free water connection was damaged and not useable. We filled our fresh water tank and used that to wash our RV and truck. . We would stay here again. We camped at Downtown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government), Destruction Bay, Yukon

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in both June and August. This was by far the best campground we stayed at on our Alaska journey. This is a self pay, dry camping government campground right on the shores of Kluane Lake. No generator hours were posted in the park. Tenters are occasionally allowed depending on bear activity. Grizzlies were spotted right outside the campground. We had spectacular views out the rear window of our 5th wheel. Nice, rocky beach on the lake for walking. We did not use the bathhouse and did not have our cell phones on so cannot comment on type of phone signal one would receive. There is a small restaurant/fuel station/hotel/grocery located in nearby Destruction Bay. We would stay here again! We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Fifth Wheel.

Mile 0 Park & Campground, Dawson Creek, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this campground in both June and August. In June, this campground was packed but by August, there were many sites available. We were assigned a 30 amp FHU pull thru. We were lucky to be assigned a site on the end of a row so we had much more space. Trees needed trimming in June but by Auagust, the trimming had been taken care of. Office staff was friendly. One must go sit by the office to access the wifi. We did not use the bathhouse or laundry. There is a Wal-Mart in town but it is not a super center and sold only limited amount of groceries. Nice photo opp at the visitor's center for the start of the Alaska Highway. This place is nothing special but served our needs. We would stay here again. We camped at Mile 0 Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
