Nice campground: grass, trees, fire pits and tables at each site. Initially Wi-Fi did not work, but when I talked to the owner, she reset the modem and we never had another problem (we were here for 3 days). We were able to pick up a couple TV channels with our antenna. Great view of the mountains and a glacier. The office is not consistently staffed, so unless you have a reservation, you will have to hunt down the owner to get checked in. If you have a reservation, there is a self-check in procedure. There was some noise from the highway, but it wasn't intrusive. We would stay here again if in the area

Pleasant campground with lots of grass and some shade trees. Very quiet at night. Some road noise during the day, but tolerable. The site we were given was plenty long enough for our 38' rig and tow vehicle. We were at the end of the row so only had another rig on one side and it was pretty close, so we might have felt confined in a site with rigs on both sides. Interior roads are dirt, thus mud when it rains which it did for the 4 days we camped here. Lots of potholes and puddles too. Cable was good; Wi-Fi was good until the park filled up with a caravan, then it was intermittent. After the caravan left, it seemed to work OK again. Could not get the pay phone to work with our calling card. When I reported the problem to the woman in the office, she said no one else had complained so had no suggestions as to why it wouldn't work. I tried several times and was never able to get a call through. Had to drive into town to the gas station when I needed to make a phone call--no problems getting a call through there. However, we would probably stay here again even with the known problems.

Very quiet, immaculately clean park in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. If approaching from the north, it is a very tight turn to enter the park road -- need to move over to the left as far as possible before starting the turn. Electrical voltage drops at night which necessitated having to run our refrigerator on LP. Wi-Fi was slow during peak times, but was great late evening and early morning. Office person was very friendly. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a convenient location if looking for an over night stop in the vicinity of the Alaska Highway and Highway 37. Limited TV channels. Wi-Fi is an extra $10 a night. Some road noise from the Alaska Highway. Restaurant and gas station on premises is convenient. Laundry room was clean, but signs posted indicate that there is iron in the water occasionally. We took a chance and did laundry anyway and had no problems. Site was sufficient for our 38' motorhome and Jeep. Easy in and out. Would probably stay here again if in the area.

Typical RV parking lot; however, we found the site to be sufficient width and length for our 38' motorhome and tow vehicle. The Wi-Fi worked very well the whole three days we were here. No problems with the power either. Some road noise from the Alaska Highway. Also the park is in the flight path for the airport, but only a problem during the day. We were in the lower level. The on-site gas was very convenient. We would stay here again if in the area.

Good basic gravel campground with easy access to the various points of interest around Dawson City. The site we were in was ample width and length for our 38 foot motorhome and Jeep. They had just installed a brand new Wi-Fi system and warned us that there may still be bugs in it and to let them know if we had any problems. It worked great and was very reliable. We were there for five nights and never had any problems with it. The cable TV worked good too. It was quiet at night; some traffic noise during the day, but not bad. The office staff were very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to see and directions to get there. They have gold pans and shovels you can borrow if you want to pan for gold. There is a car/RV wash available with high pressure hoses to wash off the Yukon mud after a day of exploring -- worked great. There is also an auto repair shop right across the street that we found necessary to use. It was very handy. Be sure to take in a show at the Diamond Tooth Gerties Saloon. We would stay here again if in the area.

Nice campground, but no trees or shrubs. We had a front row site with a beautiful view of the estuary and surrounding mountains. Easy walking distance to just about everything in Valdez. Office staff was very friendly. The internet service and cable TV both were excellent. The laundry room was clean and open 24 hours a day. There was a little bit of traffic noise, but not too bad during the night. Unlike previous reviewer's comment, they did not fee the eagle while we were there.

Nice, quiet park and good for an overnight stop. When we made our reservations we asked for full hookups. Trailer Life Directory indicates they have sewer. When we arrived, we were told they don't. Not a problem for one or two nights, but wold have been nice to know. The Wi-Fi is very unreliable. Cash or check only. We would stay here again.

The best thing going for this park is the 50 amp service and its central location. Easy access to all the points of interest in Homer. The sites were long enough for our 38' motorhome with room alongside to park our tow vehicle. However, it is located next to a busy fish processing plant with lots of traffic in and out from early morning to late into the evening. The park and processing plant are operated by the same people. It is also very close to a lake that is a "water airport" for the float planes: mostly noticeable in the morning and again in the evening when the sightseeing planes come and go. The Wi-Fi was totally unreliable and the cable TV hookup consisted of a box provided by the park. It has to be hooked up to your TV and the cable connection wire fed through a window and out to the jack on the power post. This made it necessary to leave the window cracked open all the time or to disconnect the TV when not in use if you want to close the window. Also the remote did not work so you had to manually scroll through the channels to find something to watch. In addition, the people next to us in the park were not able to get it to work on their TV at all. So if TV and/or Wi-Fi are important to you, I don't recommend this park. Highly overpriced for what you get. We would not stay here again.

The park is and surrounded by mountains and within walking distance to the Kenai River. It was very quiet: no traffic noise. The office staff was very friendly. The Wi-Fi was reliable and worked very well, the cable TV was good and we had cell phone service in the park. All the sites are back in and it was sufficient for our 38' motorhome and tow vehicle. We would stay here again if in the area.

This campground has new owners as of May 2011. They seem very nice when we spoke to them. Nightly rate is based on a weekly rate. The daily rate is $30. Wi-Fi is included at no extra charge. The campgrounds are bare bones, but clean and neat. The laundry room, bathrooms and showers are also very clean. Each site has a table and a patch of grass. This is a good base camp for day trips to Matanuska Glacier, Hatcher's Pass, Anchorage, Wasilla, Chugach State Park, Eagle River and a number of other points of interest on the Glen Highway near Anchorage. Downsides: There is traffic noise day and night and the office is not staffed regularly. No one was here when we arrived, so we just picked a site (note on the door said to do that). The owner did come around later in the day and we were able to check in then. We needed quarters to do laundry and had to go find a bank because no one was in the office. We decided to stay an extra night and had to keep checking till we found someone in the office so we could pay. However, we would stay here again if in the area.

Nice clean campground; friendly staff. Sites are somewhat close but not as bad as some other campgrounds we've stayed in in Alaska. There are some immature trees that will provide some privacy someday. There is some traffic noise from the Parks Highway, but not too bad at night. It was only a 15-minute drive from the campground to the visitor's center in Denali National Park. We would stay here again if in the area.

Very nice, clean campground. Actually looks like a campground, not an RV parking lot. There is reasonable space and lots of trees between the sites. Staff was very friendly. Only negatives are the traffic noise and the Wi-Fi does not work very well in the evening, but it does work adequately in the morning. However, we would stay here again if in the area.

The park is clean and mostly quiet. It is near an air force base and planes fly over during the day, but not at night: at least while we were camped here. The laundry room is very clean with lots of machines in working order. The Wi-Fi is excellent. The office staff is very friendly. The site was plenty long enough for our 38' motor home and our tow vehicle. This is a very good place to camp while visiting the Fairbanks area. We would stay here again if in the area.

We were given a long pull through with plenty of room for our tow vehicle. Campground is pretty sparse, all sand and gravel, however, it didn't get too muddy when it rained. Nice view of the Kluane Mountains. Good place for one or two nights. Easy access to the Haines Highway for a one-day round trip drive to Haines, AK. Only interaction with staff was when we checked in, but they seemed friendly. We were in site 40 and had excellent Wi-Fi access at our site. However, we were told that the only access was from the laundry room. It was quiet even though there were caravans staying here on two of the three nights we were here.

The park was quiet and clean. On the outskirts of the main downtown area, but central to all the points of interest in the area. We stayed here 4 nights and would stay again if in the area. The only negative was having to wait over an hour before anyone showed up to check us in. After we got settled, we found out they no longer provide TV service. Not a big deal to us, but it is advertised as an amenity.

Very nice campground among the trees and close to a lake. It's right off the road, but very quiet. Owners are friendly. Pull-through sites were long enough for our 38' motor home and tow vehicle. Wi-Fi service is excellent. A good over-night stop, but could be nice for longer stays if you are into fishing and/or canoeing. We like to take a walk in the evening and had to walk on the highway shoulder.

Nice, clean basic park for an overnight stay. The staff was friendly. Wi-Fi worked well. Good selection of TV channels. It was quiet in the back section of the park. I imagine it might have been noisier up front as the park is on a "dangerous load road". Would stay here again if passing through the area.

This campground is basically mud and puddles, however, it is a quiet place with power, water and sewer to spend the night. We found the Wi-Fi to be excellent. The rate was reduced because the restrooms were closed for "safety reasons". They did not specify what the safety reasons were. Didn't affect us because we are self-contained. We would stay here again if passing through.

Friendly staff, pleasant location and very quiet. Wi-Fi signal was strong in the laundry room, but very weak and intermittent in the motorhome. A good overnight stop. Would stay here again if in the area.

The staff was friendly. The location provides easy access to Drumheller, AB and the Royal Tyrrell Museum - the reason for our stay. The park is located between a busy highway, train tracks and an airport. Very noisy day and night. Also, it rained and there were large puddles of water and mud everywhere.
