We stayed at this campground during our Alaska trip. The location between Wasilla (for the shopping and services) and Palmer (for the attractions and fishing) is perfect. The view of the mountains is beautiful. Sites were level and spacious. Wi-Fi service was very good. Office staff were courteous and helpful. Laundry and showers were very clean. If it had cable we would give it a 10. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice RV park between Wasilla and Palmer. Clean wide space some with 50 amp service FHU which we had along with pull-through site. Laundry was large and clean as well as the restrooms. These are gravel sites with some grass between them typical of what you see through out Alaska. We stayed here 4-nights and would stay here again. Convenient to the Parks and Glenn Highways heading toward Anchorage. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The nightly rate is for the week with no sewer. Very clean restrooms and very, very clean laundry room. Office staff was very nice and helpful. This is a nice campground with some space between the campers. 30 amp service and had no problems. Free internet (fast and reliable),TV 10 stations using our antenna with good reception. Good location to shopping. Would recommend and will stay here again. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The staff was so friendly and personable that we returned on our way back through from Homer. The showers, restroom, and laundry are sparkling clean and well maintained. It is a quaint, quiet campground. We chose a site with electric only, but full hookups or sites with water and electric are available. The gravel lots are level. The grounds are kept up. The campground has a playground for children; a covered pavilion with picnic tables and gas grills for your use; and free Wi-Fi with your stay. Great place to stay not only to visit Wasilla, but to visit area highlights such as Hatcher Pass and Summit Lake. We stayed here in our 38 foot motor home and the site was large enough for our rig and tow car. This is definitely the best RV park in the area. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is daily rate for 30 amp electric and water back-in with GS discount. Roads and pads are gravel with adequate maneuverability for our big rig. Park has two areas, one area has FHU pull through sites, the other area, in the form of a circle, has water and electric back-in sites though, a few are pull through. Good check-in experience, and were informed of many things to see and do in the area. Bathrooms and laundry were well maintained. There are no trees, but that meant we could use our Internet satellite. The only negative was the electric proved to be less than reliable, and our surge protector tripped several times due to low voltage. Used our voltage booster and had no more problems, though we could tell others were still experiencing difficulties. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is not a bad little park for overnight. Many of the sites are either pull throughs or back ins around a large center circle. This works pretty well and the spoke arrangement tends to separate the rigs a bit. However the people with pickups tend to park their pickups across the front (narrow end) of the site rather than in the back (in pull throughs). This makes it hard for the neighbor to get out of their site. The Wi-Fi was free. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a typical Alaska park, a gravel pull-through, but they are super friendly. The washrooms are very clean, the laundry is also. The hosts certainly do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable and take time to greet each person that enters their park. I would certainly stay here again. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An okay place. Lots of full timers in it. Got there at 8pm; no one in office. Had to leave early next morning and again no one in office at 8:30am. Wouldn't stay again. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice, friendly campground located between Wasilla and Palmer. Both towns have lots of things to see and do. We stayed here two separate times for a total of seven days. We would stay again if we are in the area. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Large gravel parking lot, but buildings and grounds are very neatly kept. Very nice laundry room. Convenient location for area touring. Good satellite reception. Sites have tables and fire rings. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good average park for Alaska. It has good easy sites to park in and great people in the office. Wi-Fi was just so-so as you have to sign-up for a plan. This is a good base for travel into Anchorage since the campgrounds there are not so great. We would stay here again. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a larger campground than many in Alaska. The sites were pull through with some space between units. The wi-fi was free and worked well in the camper. Staff was friendly. We would stay here again. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Tent Trailer.
