Park is OK. Navigation is easy. We had a 'super site' which is what you need if you want a long enough site to park the tow vehicle. There is a playground for kids, but they are rabid about having adult supervision--so, what is the point of having the park exactly? They are also a bit nutty about rugs on the grass--wouldn't even allow a small 'welcome' mat (to wipe our feet). Seriously?

No cable available. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a gravel lot with easily accessible pull-thru site which tend to be a bit narrow. Electrical and water connections were fine (we did not have sewer on our site). I didn't try the WiFi because the Verizon 4G worked well. Bathrooms were clean, though the shower space was a bit small and tight. Laundry was convenient. This was a pleasant place to stay for a few days, and at $25 it seemed a good value. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We probably expected too much from the park because of the positive reviews. It is correct that there is grass, but the spaces are very close together with no (none) vegetation to separate the sites. It is really a large open field with some RV hookups. Some of the hookups will be on the wrong side as you share a utility post with a neighbor. It is busy. Even though we arrived at noon, we got the last site with only 30 amp electric hook-ups – no water or sewer, so if you decide to stay here you might want to make reservations. There is a water fill and a dump station. We did not use the restrooms, but did use the laundry. Washer was $2 and the same for the dryer. The laundry was very dirty and some of the driers did not work. There is very significant road noise from the nearby highway. Our Verizon phone and data MiFi worked well here, so we did not try the WiFi. We would probably search for another place to stay next time in the area. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great park in a great location. Very close to many of the attractions in Wasilla, Palmer, and Anchorage. Huge pull through site and hook-ups were just right. Hosts never bothered us and the 3 days there were very smooth. Not really a "camping location", but great place to get ready and get shopping done before things get more expensive. I have nothing negative to say and the rating is so low because I rated it based on what I have found in the lower 48 states. By "Alaska and Canada standards" it would be an 8. We camped at Big Bear Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.
