A woodsy campground. It seems to cater to fishermen. Very pleasant staff. I could have used a shoehorn to help me fit my Class C into the site between the spruce trees. - cc796

The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We needed extra space to park our boat and they provided fee-free the extra parking space. They offered free showers as we paid for full hook up, which was nice. Camp grounds were quiet and we felt at home. Will come again and again. The price was perfect compared to the rates in Kenai. - L Fishel

We had read a review on the park on this site, but this place was recommended by friends of ours that have been coming up for many years. They told us the place was great, so we decided to try a night here before going to Homer fishing.
We found it just perfect ! Our 45 ft rig was put in a nice wooded lot. We had Wi-Fi, and a firepit and table. And we used their dump station and filled with water. We went on to Homer next day but returned to stay 5 more nights.
Just a great place, we are 66 and 68 and we even tried a canoe out on a lake near by. We saw moose and baby calf, a few loons and trumpeter swans.
We kept our halibut in the campground freezers and shipped overnight fish back home. Just a great experience for us
We will be back again. - Caribouhills

This is really a shabby little place. Right next to the highway and traffic noise is constant. There is nobody there managing the place or taking care of it. One site had a broken water faucet and water was spraying everywhere, was like that at noon when we arrived and was still like that at 9am the next day when we left. Since nobody is paying any attention, just show up, take a space and be gone by 8am, nobody will even know and you get a free night. For $35 they should provide WiFi since cell phone service is nearly non-existent on the Kenai peninsula. - mtbcyclist

Checking in was a challenge, since there seemed to be no one around except a builder who was there remodeling the office and he had nothing to do with managing the park. Finally, a child located a young woman who checked me into a site. The site was ill-defined, as the utility pole sticking up through the high weeds was the only clue. This park is right on the highway and the traffic was loud and constant. The family [of the owner?] used the site next to me to build a fire and have a huge get-together one evening while I was there. The family doesn't care if anyone stays there or not and RVers are only tolerated. There was only one other RV there during the two days I was there. They would do well to spend a little more effort on the RV park instead of remodeling the office, in my opinion. I would not return. - mockturtle

We enjoyed our stay at this park and camped in pull through site 21. All facilities were more than adequate, although a bit cramped. Grass on the sites could have used a mowing. Staff was very nice and most helpful. We would return if we come back to the Kenai. - Altoflyfisher

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 by the hosts. The camp sites are cleaned when they are vacated by the Hosts.
There are several large pull-throughs along the center of the campground and all of the outer campsites are large back-in sites. There are several sites offering 2 side by side rig spacing. We have a 38 ft 5th wheel and we can fit in any of the sites. All sites have trees and bushes in between. There are several public fishing docks an easy walk from the campground. We will be back to stay here whenever we travel to Alaska. - Doris and Art

If you don't need full hookups, this park is great. There are water spigots to fill your tanks if needed. There are about 40 sites, 10 of which are pull thrus. There are also a few double sites. The campground is laid out in a loop with the pull thrus in the center. All sites are very big and offer plenty of space and privacy. The vault toilets are kept incredibly clean. This park is also the park headquarters for the Alaskan State Parks so things are kept quite nice and neat. You can walk to the river for salmon fishing. Highly recommend. - Buckie

This was an ok campground nothing special. - Donna P
Aug 2008 - $16.00
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

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

By far this was the most incredible experience our family has ever had. We literally accidentally stumbled upon this resort and it was the highlight of our 1 month journey across North America. Our original destination was to Homer Alaska so we only slipped into the resort for one night. The next day we continued on our trip to Homer and Homer Spit. We stayed one night in Homer then because the whole family loved the Kenai Riverfront Resort, we went back to and stayed a week. We even had our 17 year old son fly in from Atlanta just to have the opportunity to meet them and enjoy the Resort. The owners of this resort were amazing. The two young men were incredible friendly, very knowledgeable, and extremely patient while showing my sons how to fish for salmon. From the very beginning they all treated us like we were lifelong friends. The entire host family was very much involved with making the Kenai River an unforgettable experience. We even tried some of their recipes from their website with the Red Sockeye Salmon my 12 year old caught off their dock. My children wanted to go back everyday of our long journey back home. Every day they would ask "Can we go back to Kenai?" My children will never forget Alaska and it is entirely because of Kenai Riverfront Resort and the incredible hospitality of the Family and their slice of paradise on the Kenai River. - Slingshotrentals

Found this great RV Park on the Kenai River near Soldotna with excellent salmon & trout fishing, friendly hosts, and hot Sauna!
Lot spacing was spacious with exposures ranging from sunny/open, some shady, to covered/forested. Site surface was gravel with grass, featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - tonjeki

There is nothing special about this park which is on a busy street on the way to Kenai. The hookups all worked well and the sites are level. There are some pot holes and areas in the campground that hold water when it rains which it seems to do often. It is pretty quiet except for an a/c unit that runs all of the time in the lot behind the campground. - mrracechaser

Rate excludes tax, $37 with tax. As noted in the previous 2010 review, the park is level firm gravel and is located a block behind the Best Western Motel. Access from the main road is good. Since the park is a block off the main road, it is quiet, but yet near all the Soldotna shops. Checkin is at the Best Western Motel registration desk. Sites are wide compared to most RV parks in the area. The park includes 22 pull-through sites, long enough to easily accommodate our 45 ft Class A motorhome, but not long enough to leave a tow connected. However the tow can easily be parked alongside the RV in these wide sites. There is good Verizon and AT&T cell service, several over-the-air TV stations accessible, and the park is open enough to acquire satellite services from most of the sites. We've stayed here twice this summer and would return again anytime we are in the area. - Johnson's
Aug 2010 - $37.00
Rate is daily rate with no discounts, for full hookup, pull through site. Park is a block behind the Best Western Motel, registration for the RV park is at the motel. Park is a large open area that has sizable potholes near all three entrances. Sites are quite wide and roomy but there is no privacy. Park electric shut down several times during our stay for brief periods. May have had too many freezers with fish in them as most people seemed to be fishermen even though the park is some distance from the Kenai River. The restrooms and laundry facilities are across the street behind the motel. A park with few amenities, but also not nearly as crowded as those closer to the river. We stayed here both on our way to and from Homer. - Big Moose
Jul 2018 - $50.00
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
Aug 2018 - $55.00
We stayed a week at Klondike in a 40 foot motorhome. Site was quite adequate with large grass areas between sites. We used our own WIFI due to high volume of people trying to use the camp's WIFI. Park is off main road and quiet. Staff was very responsive to complaint of barking dog. We would stay here again. - Lonestar44
Jul 2018 - $56.00
This is a wonderful RV park. Other nearby parks are crowded and close together. This park has spacious spots and very friendly, helpful owner and staff. Although we don't use the bathrooms, I overheard a lady saying that these were the cleanest restrooms that she has ever seen. The whole place is kept very clean. They even have an herb garden by the office where you can pick some fresh herbs. Rates in July are higher than in other months because of demand. I would highly recommend reservations as this park was full while we were there. - Light

One of the best RV parks in Alaska, very clean and they keep their roads/sites well graveled and level. All utilities worked well, they no longer have cable but you get over air channels. Wifi works well but they do block most video and picture sites. - sheltieRV

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
Jul 2015 - $42.00
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

I was with a group and was not in charge of picking the RV park. The recent reviews here are pretty accurate. It looked like there were much nicer parks in Soldotna but, grass is always greener. This was convenient walking distance many things including Dairy Queen! While here, don't miss the Hardware store, great place to graze and honestly, the prices of things were often same as the (far away) Fred Meyer. I might stay here again, I have had much worse experiences (and many better too). If your just here to fish and sleep then it's fine. My son had an RV up here too and he was fearing the worst after looking at the google map satellite photos but, he stayed longer than he thought he would saying, "It's not just a gravel parking lot like it appeared to be." (But that isn't far from true.) Hard to imagine this big of an area in AK that has so few trees. - 04Sundancer

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
