Very scenic campground with mountains all around, a few sites near Kenai Lake, and a few other sites near Trail River. A number of good hiking trails are nearby. It’s a forest service campground with no hookups. There are pit toilets, they are kept very clean.

It’s a parking lot, but what a view! Right on Resurrection Bay, with mountains across the bay and behind the CG. The town keeps it very well maintained; grass stays cut; bathrooms are clean. It’s a short easy walk to downtown or to the harbor. We will definitely come back here anytime we go to Seward. Only negative: it’s a bit of a rat race when campers jockey for the waterfront spots. If you get one of the prime spots, people will ask when you’re leaving, and the moment you get ready to pull out, the “vultures” will be circling!

This is really just a parking lot, but with full hookups (even cable & Wi-Fi). Actually, there is a tiny strip of grass between sites with a picnic table at each. And the view really is grand. There is a short nature trail out back that leads to a pretty overlook. Sparkling clean laundry/showers – but you have to pay extra for the showers. The cafe is pretty good eats, just sandwiches, pizza, and breakfast, but everything is well prepared. It’s a good place to stopover if you don’t want to do the Anchorage to Glennallen drive in one hop.

It’s a parking lot in front of the general store with electric hookups for RV’s to tie into. They do provide free internet (worked just fine for us) and they have clean bathrooms and laundry (but you have to pay to use showers). There is a tiny cafe that serves hearty food at reasonable prices, and everyone was real friendly. We stayed here because it’s on the road up to Kennicot/McCarthy in Wrangell/St Elias NP – from here you can make it a day trip.

On the west edge of town, this CG has nice, roomy pull through lots. But the facilities seem a bit run-down and laundry and bathroom/showers were not very clean. Staff was very friendly. Might have given this a higher rating but three rental RV’s ran their generators all night making quite a racket (apparently this is allowed). It was like camping next to an electric plant! All in all, I’d say this made for just an OK first overnight stop after crossing the border into Alaska.

Sites are a bit tight, but spacious by Alcan standards. All gravel, plenty of trees between sites to give you privacy This campground is convenient to town and to the highway. Nice showers and laundry facility. They have a RV wash station. Good fast wireless internet connection.

No facilities here but pit toilets, but oh, the beautiful view! Not all the sites face the lake, so get here early for one of them. Free firewood is provided with site. The sites are nicely graveled. Do bring mosquito repellant. The morning we left, a grizzly ambled through the playground. It munched some greens - bothered no one – and left after being much-photographed.

The CG is right on Main St, so there is traffic noise during the day, but not so much at night. Very well-tended place, grass spots (thick grass, not dirt). The laundry and showers are immaculate. Staff was very friendly. We loved the little town of Haines – you can easily walk to downtown from the CG. And you see mountains all around from the CG. I would stay here again, but I might try the Oceanside CG next time – we did a walk through – not as nice facilities-wise, but you park right next to the harbor & can watch the cruise-ships, fishing boats, and ferries come and go (so the choice is comfort – Hitch-up; or view - Oceanside)

There are no facilities except pit toilets. You can fill your water tank. But I have to give this CG a 10 for the beautiful setting right on the shores of a mountain-ringed lake. This is the kind of campsite you see in Motorhome and Highways magazines. Not all, but some of the sites would accommodate a large motor home.

I’d rate Swan Lake very high for beauty surroundings. No hookups or showers, but it’s a park by a beautiful lake (with lots of fish), so come here for that and not for free internet/cable! The roads and sites are well graveled. Much rather stay here than in the parking-lot campgrounds in nearby Dawson Creek!

It’s a parking lot. But, as parking lots go, not so bad. The owner is a hoot: great sense of humor. Among the nicest, cleanest bathrooms I’ve seen at a CG. Music is piped into them: very classy! It’s a short, easy walk to the sign forest.

Better than average sites for the Alcan (though still a bit tight). Staff was very friendly: walked us to our spot. We liked the restaurant-bar; nothing gourmet, but good ambience. The bathrooms are clean: you do have to pay a $1 for a shower, but that seems to be common on the north highways.

This campground is well located; lots of shopping, stores, restaurants nearby. A very nice office/store/laundry. The shower/bathrooms are nice, but you have to pay a $1 to shower, something of a turnoff for me. The sites well spaced. No fire ring in our site. Roads are dirt, so lots of dust in the air. Would be unpleasant in rainy weather. Staff is very friendly, except for the guy that drives around in his pickup and tells you your toad is parked wrong, and your RV is back too far!

Very convenient to town. Nicely landscaped – the campsites have tall hedges between them, which gives you a feeling of privacy. Good shower facilities. The manager was very friendly and made recommendations on nearby stores and attractions. If you like to be out in the woods, this is not your place. But it’s the best local park campground we have been to so far.

A very quiet campground, miles from anywhere. The landscaping throughout the park is beautiful. Nice, big campsites. Free firewood provided to campers (first time we ever experienced that). The campers we met were a mix of Canadians and Americans (US) , a good venue to make cross-border friends. I’d give this place a 10, but the bathroom/shower facilities were a bit on the rustic side.

A nice campground right in town. The downtown area of Fargo is fun to walk through, and there are some good restaurants and antique shops here. They have kept a lot of the old buildings, makes it fun to walk around. The CG sites are not very large and our loop (loop A) was right next to the interstate, so it was quite noisy with the traffic. Bathrooms/showers were clean and plenty hot water. So, though the lots are small, you get to be right in town close to everything.

The park itself is nice – pretty waterfalls – great location for “jumping off” into Minneapolis (say Mall of America). The CG’s obviously been remodeled. I’d give it a higher rating, but 1. the facilities are not well designed for RV’s (our section was section 200 and it had no showers); also, our section had water spigots (they looked brand new) but the spigots were not threaded for hoses, so couldn’t use them to fill up RV tank. So we had to go to section 100 to shower (that section has nice showers, but it has no trees/looks desolate/and is close to the busy road) and to section 300 at the dump station to fill up our water tank. Just seemed like a strange layout to me. Maybe section 300 would be the place to stay, but the office told us that they didn’t have spaces there with electric that would accommodate our RV’s. We arrived on a Tuesday and the CG was virtually empty. And, also on the downside 2. the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. When we were assigned our spot by the staff, I pointed to the “restroom facility” on the map of our section, and asked if there were showers. The answer was “yes” but it turns out there are not. Then when DW went back to complain, she was scolded for not having the CG pass in her window – we had just checked in and hadn’t even parked in our campsite yet!

Location, location, location! You can catch the train to Chicago from Waukegan (a 10 minute drive) and enjoy the loop and/or museums and great restaurants from this park. The park’s setting is nice, but the facilities have gotten a bit old and shabby. Not all the showers work, could not always get hot water. The beach is fine and there are some nice trails for hiking and biking.
