Vastly overpriced for the site. Did have good power and electric. There was sewer at site but was at the front of spot, so we had to disconnect from water/electric to dump. Showers were coin operated. Did not use. Had washer and dryer, but took tokens to use. Over 4.00 each for washer and dryer. Last resort space. - Never Lost

My family and I camped here one night, in our RV, in a pull through spot with elec/water/sewer. For starters, we couldn't use the sewer because the fitting was too small (no one was hooked up so I think this was a common problem.) Second, the manager is NOT KID FRIENDLY. I overheard the "manager" loudly, openly referring to the kids (maybe ours or maybe the several other families) as "damn kids" multiple times, while shouting (to other guests) about them ruining the property. Some kids were eating apples off an apple tree I heard, but I thought it was very unprofessional to so publicly voice is distaste of kids. There were young kids riding bikes but all parents were actively involved and I never saw kids acting inappropriate.
We will be saving our money and staying in "downtown" Hope! Much better view, live music on the weekends, kid friendly and cheaper!!! - akfamilyRVer

Our price was for an electric site only. No sewer. I read the previous reviews from quite a long time ago and was a bit worried about staying here. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Our back-in site was mostly level and wide enough for our tow vehicle. There was lots of grass. There are picnic tables and fire pits but not for every site so sharing is the practice. There were 4 pull-through sites also. There is a small store, an ATM out front, laundry and showers available.
The interior roads were a bit tight but our 35' RV was fine since we had unhooked our Jeep in their parking lot but larger rigs might have a little trouble.
It is about a mile into the small town of Hope where there is a marvelous smaller museum. - swike

Great campsite with gold panning near by. Camp friendly hosts with cozy little spots. Loved the stay. - akphil

This campground is open again. The rate reflects a 50% Senior Federal Pass discount plus an extra $5 extra charge because of our tow car. This campground charges extra for the tow car, so without the discount, it would be $23 for our setup! The campground is at the very end of the road past the town of Hope and is on Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet. It is a short drive from Anchorage so is heavily used, particularly on the weekend, by the residents of that town. They consider “rules” such as the check-out time merely a suggestion. The campground also gets considerable traffic from drive-throughs since it is at the end of the road. A few of the sites have great views of Turnagain Arm. These are often reserved, particularly on the weekend. We arrived on a Sunday and were able to nab one of these nice view sites. Many of the sites are very unlevel; too bad this was not rectified in the remodel they just completed. We had to try three sites to get a site level enough so that we could sort-of level. The road in the campground is fairly tight, so that a really big rig would have some difficulty maneuvering. The setting is pleasant in all of the sites and there is reasonably good separation between sites. There is no dump station and the water is from a hand pump, so arrive with all the water you will need and plan on hauling out the waste tanks. There is a campground host that was unhelpful to the point of being aggressive and rude. Our Verizon phone and data card worked well here. We might stay here again during the week for an overnight, but would never consider staying here on a weekend. - TheJim

This park is CLOSED on July 11, 2011. They are doing some type of road work and/or other work in the park and have a "Closed for the Season" sign up and the road is blocked. - Sonic

We camped here several times during our last trip to Alaska. It is one of our favorites in Alaska. Unfortunately, we were told by the hosts that the campground will undergo major renovations and will be closed during 2010. Check before going. - semperfi66

Stay again we did, a year apart. 2 nights, same site. Same details as last year. Great place, restaurant open this time, good food. Would stay again !! - Nevada Nick

Stayed 2 nights. End of the road, right on Resurrection Creek. Lots of fishermen, fun to watch the action. Upgraded electric, now have 20/30 and 50 amp service boxes. Level gravel sites, a little dusty with the regular fishing lot access. Disappointed that the restaurant/café was closed the Mon & Tues we stayed. The alternative was Tito's Discovery Café on the road into town. Good food and awesome home baked pies, not your typical burger joint. Toilets are porta-pots, but there is a public restroom building a block up the street. We used a pull-thru site, but they have back-ins too. Your neighbor is close, but not as bad as some in Alaska. Would stay again. - Nevada Nick

The weekend here was great. The campsite was clean and the individuals at the cafe were welcoming and friendly. The fishing was great for the kids and the dog enjoyed the area walk. - Jaxjar

In all fairness, this site has been totally redone since the earlier reviews 2007-2009. It is now much more open, with gravel back-on sites. IAll the trees have been removed from the campsite itself (there are plenty of trees surrounding it). The campground is close to the Seward Highway, so you will get some road noise. There is an overflow area across the street that has nice views of the inlet. - Cras108er

Lovely location, but not maintained. Massive and deep potholes in the road through the park. I don't know if a big rig could make it. There were stumps in the middle of sites so it was very difficult to park, and they were very uneven. It could be a great place; it's close to the water, in a forest with large private sites. But it needs a lot of work. We stayed there because it was close to Anchorage for returning our RV in the morning. That would be the only reason to stay. I wouldn't stay here again. - foster33

This campground is located about 16 miles south of Anchorage at mile marker 101 on the Seward highway. It is a good location but in need of a lot of work. The gravel road into and through the campground had potholes 8 and 9 inches deep and 2 to 4 feet round. It is a narrow winding one way road. Big rigs can get in if very careful. There where a lot of trees down laying all around. It look like they may have been cut and just left to rot. I did talk to a state park worker and he said the campground is going to get a complete makeover. I would not stay here without checking it out to see if it had a makeover. - BLT101

This is a usually vacant parking lot in the summer months, but there are occasional events that fill it up and so there is no guarantee you can camp here. It is a convenient overnight place to park away from the highway traffic and noise between Anchorage and the Kenai. The slope others mention is not so much a problem for trailers, but some motorhomes find it hard to satisfactorily level. The parking lot is downhill from the resort complex and there is a self service registration box at the entrance to the lot. Fill out the envelope, include a $10 bill and drop into the box, display the tear off flap on your windshield. There are no sites per se, just an open unmarked lot. - Trailbuddy

While, the site is clean and safe, it is nothing more than a downward sloping gravel parking lot. Leveling a coach is impossible without numerous wood blocks, probably more than most RVers would carry. I'm taking feet not inches. Fifth wheels and trailers might be fine, but forget a Class A or C. - HippieGypsyNomad

We won't complain about paying 10$ for a safe and legal place easily accessible on paved roads to spend the night. Yes, it is nothing more than a parking lot and has no amenities whatsoever. But you get away from the very busy highway along Turnagain Arm. The registration process is a little awkward. The 'sites' are located in the front part of the lot and marked with numbers. There is a box where you stuff the money into a slot corresponding with the number of your site. Well, we paid for a random number and stayed somewhere in the far back of the lot. Don't be surprised by some traffic on the parking lot as locals use it as a shortcut. Very quiet during the night though. - TheSchweitzers

Lovely RV park with some sites by lake shore. Shade from trees but large sites. Dry camping. Site 13 is a huge long pull through. Quite a few sites would have accommodated our 40 ft motor home. - Travels42

Dry camping. Beautiful setting. Big spots. Lots of mosquitos. Our spot was level and very nice. It had fire ring and picnic table.
Dump station and host.
It was a very nice campground and easy to park.
We enjoyed this little spot and would recommend it. - Caribouhills

This is a dry campground with no hook-ups. There is a potable water place and latrine type toilets. Campsites have firepits and picnic tables. Summit Lake Lodge is near the campground. - CherGib

From the paved road it is three miles in on a well maintained dirt road. There are about ten separate sites along the way in and about ten more parking lot style right in front of the Heritage site. We picked one of the spots along the road and were all by ourselves. Some levelling was needed. Picnic table and fire ring on site. Excellent privacy as the next site was hundreds of meters away. No traffic after the Heritage site closed for the night. You need to be self contained, only a pit toilet available at the mine's parking lot. Surprisingly we had full AT&T coverage. Tucked away and super quiet, that's how we like it and therefore will be back. - TheSchweitzers

Except for the dirt road to get here, this is a really cute campground, if you want to call it that. The Crow Creek Mine allows you to stay on. You can pan for gold, and walk through the little town set up. It's really nice. - Donna P

AVOID THIS PARK! We stopped to check this park out & immediately moved on. It was a trash dump that the city should condemn. Run down, dilapidated old RVs, some covered with tarps from leaking, old cars and trucks in disrepair, one truck on blocks, trash all around. It had the look of a very trashy unsafe park. I wouldn't have stayed there if it was free. - freestyle freddy

This is an average RV park. All sites are extremely narrow. Thank goodness there were no units next to us when we got there. We were in a back-in site against the far fence. The site was very uneven and the facilities were against the fence. There were Class A units across the road and they were so close together after they parked their tow vehicles their neighbors could barely get their slides out. Don't know if I've ever seen an RV park with such narrow sites. Fortunately, we were there a week before Labor Day and there were very few campers in our row. Our park was quiet but across the fence was a mobile home park and it was somewhat noisy from loud vehicles and music a couple of evenings. There's not a lot of choices of RV parks in Anchorage so it's about the best you can do. Overall, it was fine. - AZ Retired Traveler

Stayed at the Golden Nugget on August 18th for 3 nights. I was highly satisfied with my stay. Staff was friendly and had great customer service, even had a dog walker which was very helpful. Restrooms and Laundry room were always kept clean, they even had security that did rounds about every hour. I would recommend this RV Park to anyone visiting Anchorage. - T_Antonette

I loved staying at the Golden Nugget. Me, my wife and kids were greeted by a friendly staff. Very clean bathrooms and big laundry room. They're laundry room is the cheapest around. Will stay here again. - Jaylen Dee
