3 RV Parks near Ketchikan, Alaska
Jun 2008 - $8.00
This campground is in the Ward Lake Recreation Area in the Tongass National Forest. It is 8 miles north of Ketchikan. It is for dry camping. There are water pumps, pit toilets, and a beautiful lake surrounded by trees and mountains. There are also hiking trails. If you drive in without a reservation, you can find one you like and stop by the campground host to pay. - sierramom

This is a cramped, mud pit. Yes, it has all the utilities including cable, but it is a joke of a campground. I am sick of campground owners thinking that RVers like to live like pigs in slop. And they run a cruise ship excursion office in the middle of the sites. Therefore there are tour buses coming and going all day. The sites are so narrow that I can touch the RV next to me. The sewer hole is 10" above the ground. Needless to say, my sewage is having to run uphill. What a joke. - User2989

RVer beware! The last review on this resort is dated June 2014 and there are significant changes. There is new management in place and for some reason the bar and restaurant is not available to RV customers only those with fishing package deals, as we were told. This was a big downer because we were looking forward to watching for whales, seals, sea lions, and eagles from a casual environment while enjoying dinner at the resort. Sites are very tight on the water front and in the upper sections, tough to get into and setup. On a positive note, the camp host was very helpful and we were lucky enough to be assigned two adjoining sites which allowed just enough room for both our slides to be extended [seems management knows of this situation and is trying to deal with it the best they can]. The water is still 'tea colored' and really undesirable for everyday use. We did not even use it to brush our teeth, let alone drink it. Simply stated, the resort is adequate only because it's the only place on Ketchikan with full hookups. However if you are a fisherman with or without a boat, then this park may be for you. If not, a better option may be to dry camp at a local state park or stay at the downtown Super 8 Motel and park your rig there for free. - rams-2015

This park is adequate enough. The spaces are very small. We had a boat trailer next to us and could just barely get out door open. Fortunately, no one was on the other side, so our slideout didn't interfere with anyone. This park is more of a fishing resort, with the RV spaces there for the convenience of the fishermen. Nice to have TV and internet after camping in the National Forest for several days. Some of the spots are directly on the waterfront, giving a beautiful view. - RCH
