2 RV Parks near Gakona, Alaska
Jul 2017 - $35.00
There aren't too many spacious RV parks with grass in Alaska. This is one of them. We stayed one night, and there was hardly anyone there. Don't know the condition of showers/bathrooms since we were in a motorhome. We had to stop one night between Koidern, YT and Palmer, AK. I think most people stop at Tok, but we pushed through. Glad we did, since the Tok Cutoff is in awful shape, and it was nice to put that behind us before we stopped. The owners are very nice and helpful. Bring cash as they seem to have problems with their credit card machine. - mtmsf

We arrived here very early (May 7) in the season. Owner was very nice, facilities are great, and the price was very fair. Sites are large and open. Lawn is brown now but this looks like it will be beautiful in 4-5 weeks. - Smi5ths

Still only OK for an over nighter. The sites are flat dirt, but there is decent space between them. Some sites are right on the rivers edge but are electric only. You can walk down to the rivers by a side road in the park. The owner is chatty, but a nice guy. We had to pay cash as his system was down for credit or debit cards. I would stay here again if need be. - SargeW

We stayed for one night on our trek along Nabesna Road. The campground is fairly new, I believe it was totally redone in 2012, however it appears to have suffered from frost heaves and both the road around the campground and the campsites are very uneven due to the frost heaves. Some of the sites are long and/or spacious and there are picnic tables and fire pits at each site. The pavement on Nabesna Rd ends at mile 15 and it's hard packed gravel the rest of the way to the campground.
Camping here is free. - Marsha D

This is a free campground, located at mile 28 of Nabesna Road. Stop at the Slana Ranger Station first. Grab a free audio CD that will narrate your drive on Nabesna Road and inquire about free camping opportunities along Nabesna Road (there are quite a few). Kendesnii is the only real campground among those. 10 sites with picnic tables and fire pits and no amenities other than two pit toilets. No water source. But amazingly quiet out here and stunning views of the Wrangell St. Elias Mountains on the way in and from the campground. Sites are level and in the open. A small trail leads to the adjacent lake. Nabesna Road is paved till mile 10 or 12 and the it's gravel. Pretty good road to Kendesnii, rather rough beyond. Our next trip to Alaska will include a few days on Nabesna Road again. - TheSchweitzers
