I have to agree with the rest, it's just okay. The wifi did not work - despite what the office says. We've worked heavily with wireless signals in the past several years (internet dish on our coach since 2004), but no way could we connect to their internet. Big rig "friendly" is a bit of a misnomer; very tight roads with huge, beautiful trees. If we come back this way, we'll look for other arrangements.
Big rig sites are actually separate from the rest of the treed campground. No sewer, no cable. Dump station is NOT conducive to a big rig trying to use it, unless it's on the way out. If you're considering this park and drive a big rig, make sure you go in with empty tanks. Our tow vehicle was parked at another site because the pull-thru site wasn't large enough. The drive to the campground from the interstate made us a little nervous because it looks like you're going off into nowhere without a place to turn around, but once you reach the campground I guess you could drive around inside it to get back out if you changed your mind. This campground is definitely better suited to smaller rigs and trailers, regardless of what TrailerLife says.
This is our second time here. This year the monthly rate for our 50amp/full hook-up site is $640.00. $ 21.00 a night ! What a deal! The views are fantastic. Every night in June (until the salmon run) they feed the eagles right here in the park. Fabulous pictures and terrific people. If you come to Valdez there's no better park in town !
This is a beautiful RV park located on a 9-hole, par 36 golf course. The only reason it didnt get a 10 rating is because there is no cable TV or internet access available. Phone and 50 amp is available but not at all sites. The setting is clean and well-kept, a little hard to get to because of road construction. Call RV park for current directions to minimize your frustration in finding it ! It is a Good Sam park.
I agree with the previous review. Nothing much has changed: although we did have water, albeit very low pressure. As campgrounds go, traveling to and from Alaska, this one is okay. The ad in Milepost does state that they have cable, but they don't. It's okay for overnight and that's about it. There is a large service station on the property, which is convenient. They advertise fuel prices cheaper than Tok and they are. By a penny a gallon! The pull-through sites are nice, and wide, and large.
WOW!! We came for a week: we're staying a month. Fabulous scenery and all of the people, including other RVers are exceptionally nice. This park is our hands-down favorite of all the parks we've stayed at in Alaska. Everything in town is within walking distance. Including the small boat harbor. A short drive away is Allison Point: the pink salmon were here during our stay. Simply amazing to see! If you're in Valdez, don't miss it or this RV Park!
If your rig is 40' or longer: look somewhere else. I booked online, filling out a form stating that our coach is 42' long, with slides and towing. I wanted Oceanfront only, no trees. They gave us Oceanfront alright: but it clearly says on their campground map that the site they assigned us could accommodate up to 30ft. Fortunately I saw that on the map before my husband tried to navigate the site. Went back in the office. They asked that we look at the site to see if we could make it work. The most unlevel site I have ever seen: and yes, just about 30'. Not only that but, although their web site is very nice, they fail to mention that the ONE LANE bridge near the entrance of the campground can only hold 20 tons. We were holding our breath. Obviously we didn't stay, but we also didn't hook up until we got back into town. No need to put all that weight on that pitiful bridge. Believe me, driving the little road to their campground is NOT a sightseeing wonder. It's washboard and very narrow. If you have a big coach-fuhgetabout it! They have no sewer hookups and no dumpstation. The Waterfront Park is more than adequate.
Nice place to stop over on the way to Canada. The noise wasn't a bit of a problem for us. The people were very nice - they have a crew that will wash your coach and tow for you. Nice, wide, open spaces - no trouble with our DirecTV or internet dish at all. We would definitely stay here again.
What a nice place to stay for a couple of days. The park sits on "Old Man River" and they have a few spots you can pull into that overlooks it. Probably wouldnt fit a big rig and tow, but the other sites more than accommodate the bigger rigs with slides. Our site was so level we didn't need to do anything but pull in. Our internet dish and DirecTV had no problem at all. We would definitely stay here again. The people working here and the people we've met in the area have been very nice.
We stopped here on our trip from the east coast to Alaska in our 42' motorhome. We were assured that they had a site for us. The first site was one of the new back-in sites. Impossible to maneuver because it was not at an angle and a small tree was planted close to the gravel on one side and a sign post close to the gravel on the other. Directly across the small roadway is another site - okay to use to back-in if no one is there. But if someone is - forget it. Trailer Life may say that they have big rig sites - trust me, they have very few. Those that they do have, "have been reserved for a year". If you have a big rig and want to stay here, make sure they give you a pull-thru. Having said that - they apparently moved some people around so that we could have a pull-through. We were here over the Memorial Day weekend. It was a nightmare. I think we may have crashed someone's party - the music was blaring ALL DAY long. So much so that we either had to leave or keep all of our windows closed. Not our idea of enjoying our vacation. There were children everywhere, some as young as 8 and 9 driving golf carts all over the place. There were a group of campers across from us that literally did not shut up until after 1 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday night. The music stopped at 11pm, but they continued drinking, yelling and feeding a HUGE bonfire until well after midnight. Again forcing us to completely close up the motorhome. We arent old, fuddy-duddies, but if we're going to pay $44 a night for the "privelege of staying on their private property" (taken from their "rules page"), we would have appreciated someone from the campground making sure that EVERYONE in their campground was given the opportunity to enjoy themselves. What a nightmare and what a long weekend this turned out to be. It is a family campground and I'm sure it was a blast for those families that participated in this 3-day party. But it was inconsiderate and rude of the campground owners to let it go on the way it did. Of course, I'm sure these people are regular campers here, as are most of those that were here this weekend, but we will not be back, nor will we recommend it to anyone we know traveling through this area. Dont take your big rig in. There were so many people here, that we felt safer staying in place until Tuesday when everyone left, rather than taking the chance of trying to get our rig out of here through the children, the golf carts, the other rigs and all the tow vehicles. We were here in a 42' motothome with 4 slides.
Typical KOA - sites were difficult to maneuver with a larger rig. Once we were in the site it was fine, however getting in and out was difficult. The streets are very narrow and everyone parks their tow vehicles either directly in front or directly in back of their coaches - which nearly put them on the street. It was almost impossible to navigate our 40' motorhome in and out of the space. Looks like a lot of long term tenants are there. Okay for overnight, but wouldnt recommend staying any length of time.
This used to be a KOA - as such, it's really not compatible with big rigs. When I called to reserve the spot, I informed them that the length of the rig was 42' with 4 slides - I overestimated because I knew that KOAs typically have trouble with larger rigs. They assured me we would fit just fine. If you consider having very narrow streets and manuevering around trees and a cactus (yes!) that are planted at the rear of the site as fitting "just fine", then I guess it is big rig friendly. Overall the park was okay - there are a lot of what looks like very long term tenants - it looks as though some havent moved in quite awhile - $60 a night is overpriced for the aesthetics of this campground, but the employees were very nice. We were here in a 40' motorhome with 4 slides.
Sadly, we had a terrible experience here. As of April 2005 there was no park security, although their ad in the Trailer Life Campground Directory states that there is. Our motorhome was broken into at 10:00 am while we were at the grocery store. Our safe was destroyed and all of our jewelry and cash was stolen. We used our keyless entry system to lock our coach. IT WASNT ENOUGH. Someone in the area has a masterkey to coaches that lock this way. If you have a deadbolt on your unit - ALWAYS USE IT. Unfortunately no one who works at the campground and no one staying there saw anything. There is a motorhome dealership who works on coaches right there in the park - they didnt see or hear anything either. There is a company on-site that cleans and details coaches - apparently they didnt see anything either. We do not recommend anyone stay at any campground located on Music Valley Drive. Ours was the first private coach broken into, but there are a couple of Motorhome dealers located on this street. They have also had break-ins. Besides losing wedding bands and sentimental items that took years of hard work to acquire, our home and personal space has been violated. The campground has liability insurance, however according to the agent, it's only for gross negligence. So much for insurance. Our nightly fees were refunded. yippee.
