19 RV Parks near Kasilof, Alaska
Aug 2017 - $35.00
Kasilof RV Park is a small park with only 17 spaces, 5 of which are permanently occupied each summer. This is an "extended stay" park. In June and August the minimum stay is a week. In July the minimum stay is a month. They apparently get lots of repeat year to year business. The hookups in the full service sites on the front row are fine but only the front row has sewer, and 4 of those 8 spots are permanently taken. The remainder of the park is water and electric only, although they have a dump station. Wifi was decent while we were here and I'm sure it's partly due to the small number of patrons. Our site was long enough for our 43' pusher without toad, but due to some very unruly trees on both sides we barely got our slides out and couldn't use our awning. Branches scraped the roof and awning housings constantly in the wind.
This is another park that needs to seriously look at clearing out some brush and branches, especially if they want to keep saying they are big rig friendly. There are some turns on the park road and some sites and approaches that are too tight with the existing vegetation and overhanging branches. As it is, I wouldn't consider it as big rig friendly.
All in all this is a quiet, pretty, little park and it is moderately priced by Alaska standards. There is obviously a sense of community among many of the patrons/residents and everyone we met was quite friendly. The gracious lady in the permanent site next to ours walked around our second day and passed out bags of homemade chocolate chip cookies to all the various rigs.
This park is not a destination; it's a jumping off point to much of what the Kenai Penninsula has to offer. Other than a community fire pit, that's it for activities at the park itself.
If you have a normal size rig you will most likely be fine, but 40-45 foot Class A units with tag axles and multiple slides might want to think twice or risk scratching up their paint. - 3browns

Really enjoy our stays here. It really is park like and so glad to get away from the parking-lot campground! It was very full in July but still the bathrooms were immaculate as the other review said. We now take our camper there for the whole month and it works out to be cheaper and so much easier for me on set up and getting back and forth. - ChristyAnc

Wooded sites, bigger than most in Alaska located across from Johnson Lake in a rural setting. There was a calm, relaxing atmosphere. Very nice, helpful owners/hosts. Moose in the area. Close enough to Clam Gulch for razor clamming and Soldotna for salmon fishing, yet away from the crowds. We loved it here and would camp here again. - boomerang

We stayed one night only because it was late and there was no way to turn around to leave without disconnecting our towed car. I wish we had made the extra effort to get back on the road. The heat generated by their defective outlet caused damage to my plug. Luckily, we carried a spare, and they only cost around $25. Had to use four sewer hoses to reach the sewer connection; and, it was uphill. This requires "running" the hose (lifting it by hand to drain the contents) to make sure there were no surprises when I disconnected. Nasty work. The roads in the park had large potholes, making navigation tenuous. While the campground appeared to be clean enough, it just had an unkempt look that at least made it seem that there wasn't much effort made on the park's appearance. I cannot recommend this campground to anyone. Another camper was in the process of trying to get his money back because the park did not offer the amenities it advertised (wifi, cable, etc.) Every camper we came in contact with was grumbling about the campground. - luckydog

Site was not level, spongy, some grass. Hookups were OK. Restroom was OKn not the cleanest, but acceptable. $7 bucks for a shower is not acceptable. I realize lots of overhead but that's too much. HOWEVER if you want to fish in Alaska this is a great place. Walk to the Kasilof, or you can get charters to float fish, or go halibut fishing. Owners were very helpful and provide good service. Lots of people here if the fish are biting, so call ahead. Probably a mad house during the salmon runs. Would only stay here if I was fishing. - davidmsparks

Great older RV Park in the trees, out of town, within walking distance of the Kasilof River which had excellent fishing for Kings and Sockeye. People were great, location is great (about the middle of everything you want to see and do). Highly recommend the place and staff. Much better than the parking lot RV parks in town. Will be going back. Full hookups, laundromat, C-Store with tackle and more. Cheaper than the in town parks with much more to offer. - coltont

Nice and quiet. No hookups, just power. Free sewer dump. Not much to do or see there. More of a Bar place if into drinking. Not for me. Will not return. - coltont

This was a fantastic RV park plus motel, bar and restaurant. Scenery was great with moose walking through at all times. Very friendly managers. Only minutes from great areas of interest. On the main road from Anchorage to Homer. We stayed here for about 2 months. Would recommend. - Gramma

We have stayed here several times over the past five years. We have been extremely impressed with the quality of the way the campground is taken care of by the volunteer hosts. The bathrooms are well maintained and cleaned on a daily basis. There are a variety of campsites available for most types and sizes of rigs. Johnson Lake offers swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. If you are lucky there are even ducks and loons that frequent the lake and seem to enjoy getting their photos taken. We have also enjoyed having moose walk through our campsite. - Doris and Art

At mile 110 Sterling Highway turn off to Johnson Loop Lake Road and follow the signs to the campground right on the lake. There are two loops and both are dry camping. Sites are gravel back ins with trees around and some have lake view. Pit toilets and hand water pumps are provided. Some distant traffic noise from the highway but quiet at night. The lakes invites for a swim and quite a few families with kids enjoyed the opportunity. Seems to be a popular place since it was almost full on the first stay and fully occupied when we tried to stay again a few days later. - TheSchweitzers

This was the best RV park we stayed in Alaska. Friendly staff, clean and convenient to Soldotna and for fishing on the Kenai River. This park has trees and so many others looked like parking lots! Hookups were good and the wi-fi was free and adequate. Would definitely stay here again. - themadcamper

This campground is pretty much just a place to park when the salmon are running in town. There was a lot of noise from the road. - Fulltime Travelers

Very basic RV park located in a residential/commercial neighborhood. It is a gravel lot with hookups. It is surrounded by trees and the Kenai river on one side. Access to the river by a long stair way to a small dock. Owner is personable. His grandson/manager is competent and friendly. All utilities are convenient and worked well. Much too expensive and basic for what is offered. Rated as Below Average, we would not stay there again. - Pacatrader

FHU 30 amp, located on a very busy intersection lots of traffic noise, easy access from hwy. and enough room to maneuver in campground, almost no trees, level spots, power,water, sewer, Verizon good, close to town, close to river but cannot see or hear it, just a short walk from camp, WIFI bad. - RandL
Jul 2018 - $38.00
When we checked in here the attendant had a devil may care attitude. Sites are tail to tail and tight. We had a 30AMP stanchion, water was terrible, came through tea colored and we chose not to use it for anything. We bought bottled water. First night the power died and the staff offered no explanation. The sites are dirt, gravel and weeds. There is traffic noise to deal with but the main problem is, there are no other choices. - SilverBear

This is a small RV park with small sites. Staff was very nice. Good location to fish the Kenai River since they have their own access to the river. Also good location to tour Soldotna and only 20 minutes to Kenai. Power and water were fine but wifi is with Tengo and you must pay to use it. Prices were OK but not free and very slow. My Verizon Mifi worked well as did my cell phone. I would stay here again. - RayN

We didn't actually stay here as we are staying at another c/g right in town. We went in to have a look in the tow car. The road is nothing but pot holes. I am so glad we decided to stay in another campground. It is very busy because this is the Salmon fishing season in Soldatna. The roads are very busy in July.
The sites are a mix of some in the trees and some level pull thrus which for the most part were empty. They were long and wide enough. We really didn't ride around the whole c/g as the roads were just too bad for me. The campground itself looked clean. There was one section that was full of tents and easy ups. - mrracechaser

This campground is not very well maintained & is totally dry camping, although there is water available nearby. There are no restrooms other than pit toilets & they were not always very clean or well kept. The roads in the campground as well as leading to the campground are very rough dirt roads full of potholes. Really the only thing this campground has going for it is being right on the Kenai river with salmon fishing just steps away. - 2justroamin

The park has nice sites. The sites are wide and spacious. However, the check in person (presumed owner) has an attitude. Very stringent rules about everything. Not a good place to bring a pet. They say they will ask you to leave if your pet urinates or defecates in the park. You must take your pet to the woods behind the park. No bathroom facilities. Showers are clean. Wi-Fi worked well in our site. We will not stay here again. - Jim Sathe

This was a homely, no frills CG (no hook-ups, no showers) right over the Kenai river. The park was extremely busy but we got a pull-through site that fit our 30 ft class A and toad. The dirt roads to and through the CG were very rutted and pot holed. There is a Fred Myer very close to the CG. CG noisy and busy late into the evening/night with an awful lot of traffic on the CG road. It seems to be a popular place for folks who don't mind standing elbow to elbow with dozens and dozens of others to fish the Kenai river. (I guess that's basically the point of the place.) OK for a day or two but overall we thought it was pretty bad. Next time we'll drive the extra miles to the Discovery CG in Captain Cook recreation area, it was much, much nicer and less money. - mahaffee

The resort is a nice location, however that is where the nice stops. The owner was very controlling and condescending it made what should have been a relaxing vacation a nightmare. I have stayed in many RV parks in the Soldotna area and I have never had any treatment like this. My son (first trip to AK) and brother in law and I went up for a nice quite fishing vacation. This was not the place for that. They do have a clean shower, however the hours are 9:00 am -9 pm somewhat inconvenient. There is one toilet for the whole camp. This camp is expensive for what amenities are offered, worse than that is the treatment we received from the owner - buyer beware. - Minnesota Fisherman

Only electric hook up, hose for all to use to fill water, 1 bathroom for all, and 1 shower that is available only between specific hours 7AM-9PM. While our site was spacious and quiet and the family was very nice and helpful, we were mislead in the registration process. This is an expensive park at $100/night! We were told the price was high due to the location for fishing and the regular help and instruction we'd be given, and that they'd be there with us while fishing (and they were only at times). And I was enticed by the owner telling me that our timing was perfect for when the salmon are at the height of running by them. However, I learned from published information in their bathroom that the run for sockeye salmon (for which we were fishing) ended a week before we arrived. In fact they were running in another river further down, but the owner never said a word about going there to fish until we checked out. This was a misrepresentation of the facts in order to get us to book. When deciding to book, he also told me that the were filling up. Yet, there was only 1, and at times 2 other spots filled while we were there. Very disappointing! There is a policy of no refund there also. Check when and where the fish are running with local Fish and Game people before you book. - Adventurous Retirement

We made reservations for two motorhomes. When we arrived we were told that we would be charged an additional $25.00 per night for our towed vehicle payable immediately, payable in cash. We were required to follow the owner around the campground so that he could point out all the amenities and the rules pertaining to them. For example, the single shower was only available from 9 am to 8:45 pm. I don't normally wait until the middle of the day to bathe. There was also a single bathroom available and he pointed out the cleaning supplies and told us to clean it if it was dirty. There are no sewer dumps or individual water for the sites so you either use their facility or you have to go to town five miles away and dump. The last straw from the owner was when he discriminated against us because of our beliefs. We told him we did not feel comfortable staying at this site. He immediately told us there would be no refund. When I told him this was not right to keep my money he told us we had five minutes to leave or he was calling the troopers. We left and found a very nice campground in Ninilchik. I called my credit card company and canceled the transaction. - User821
