2 RV Parks near Juneau, Alaska
Apr 2016 - $15.00
Restrooms were clean and roads well-maintained. Campground sits right on a beautiful lake with lovely view of the glacier. However, site was buggy in the evenings. Good value and away from town and all the tourists. - Lisa Justin

It's great to find a National Forest Campground with full hookups, and 50amp at that! On the shores of Mendenhall Lake which is fed by the Mendenhall Glacier. Within 5 miles of the Alaska Ferry and about 10 miles from Juneau. The problem was the site layout, many were not level and the hookups worked very well with the exception of the sewer connection. Most of the sites we saw, the connection was uphill from the RV. We have a 41' motorhome and had to drive our front wheels up on blocks to get level, even with our leveling system. A great value nonetheless. - Dick & Bev

This park is conveniently located near the ferry landing (perhaps 5 miles and no traffic) and is right on Mendenhall Lake. You do not have to go through Juneau proper to get there. The setting is absolutely fantastic. There are huge trees and lots of blueberry bushes. We were in Site 53, which has water, sewer, and 50 amp electric - it's also a pull through site that is big enough for any rig (our RV is 43 ft). The sites were extremely private as well. The primary concern we have is that the hookups are oddly placed, at least at the two sites we tried. If you want the hookups to be on the correct side of your rig, you have to pull so far forward that the front of the RV was nearly on the road - and our 20 ft sewer hose still wouldn't work. So, we chose to pull in the other direction and run the water, sewer, and electric under the motorhome. Despite this, we cannot wait to go back - it's simply wonderful. I rated the park a bit lower for "service" because there are basically no services there, and you cannot pay onsite. You must register and pay either online or by telephone, which can be a real hassle for those showing up at the last minute. The park host was very engaging and helpful. This campground is also conveniently located to Walmart and an enormous Fred Meyer store (easily the largest retail store we've ever seen). - kmghmg

Good park, but beware of tricky transportation logistics for RVs. Run by a mother-daughter team, this friendly park is more spacious than a typical commercial park, with some green space between sites, along with some picnic tables and fire pits. The staff is helpful, and the facilities are clean and tidy. The laundry is particularly nice, and located in a 24-hour-accessible central facility in the same building as the office, with no need to get change or tokens from staff. TRANSPORTATION LOGISTICS: This park is located about 16 miles from town on Mendenhall Loop, making it pretty close to the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal and of course the Mendenhall Glacier, but not at all close to downtown. One thing you RV'ers need to know is that parking in downtown Juneau for an RV is IMPOSSIBLE. Fortunately, there are two bus routes that stop right outside the park, but unfortunately, as of our visit, the bus stop sign right by the park entrance had disappeared, thus it wasn't clear where the stop was! We ended up walking up a mile and a half to the next stop, and had the pleasure of watching a bus drive right by us despite our waving because we weren't at an official stop. Here's what you need to know to make the busses work for you: => There are two routes serving the park: Route 3 runs counterclockwise around Mendenhall Loop and Route 4 runs clockwise around Mendenhall Loop. => Both take about an hour to get you in to town, and come about once an hour during the day, Monday through Saturday. => The bus stops for both Route 3 and Route 4 are right next to the park entrance. Walk from the park to the street, then the bus stops are about 50 feet to the RIGHT. The Route 3 bus stop sign (on the same side of the road as the park) is MISSING. But the Route 4 bus stop sign on the opposite side of the street is present, so just look for it. => Ask staff for the times of each route. Our recollection is that Route 3 came ~7 minutes before the hour, while Route 4 came ~20 minutes after the hour, during the day. Check with staff, though. => A taxi is another option, and costs about $35. one way. Note that Mendenhall Glacier was not quite walking distance from this park (~2 miles away), but parking an RV there was not a problem. Only getting to the activities based downtown was problematic. - TheOccasionalRVer
