The park was relatively convenient (about 15 minutes from downtown Anchorage) and offered decent amenities which were relatively clean. One nice perk for our family was a playground (not part of the RV park) that was located across the street. The staff were pleasant, but somewhat slow in registration. The showers had temperature limiters on them (good for safety) but the shower water was never really more than warm. We would stay again if strictly a matter of convenience, but not as part of a "enjoying nature" type of experience.

A nice cozy park in the woods close to downtown Talkeetna. While we had to pay extra for showers ($3 for one 7-minute token), the park was very reasonably priced and had very clean and well-maintained amenities. The Alaskan railroad runs close to the park, but trains were infrequent and did not run at inconvenient hours (e.g., 4 a.m.) while we were there.

A conveniently located park, but the setting is unimpressive; it is located on an open patch of dirt directly behind shops and restaurants. After paying more than $40 per night, we were quite surprised to find out that we had to pay extra for showers ($2 for one 7-minute token). The potable water was very, very hard and was periodically very tinted with iron (rust), so we didn't drink it. There are other parks in the area that may not be as close to "downtown" Denali, but are much better rated. We would not plan to stay at this park again.

A park with limited amenities, but situated in a lush forest which made for a quiet night's stay. Registration and payment is self-service (i.e., honor system). There are two central dump stations and one 500-gallon potable water station for the entire campground. The site charged $5 per dump usage, but is reasonable given the relative low-cost of staying overnight. Classic campground bathrooms--no running water--just a seat over an open pit. We found this site to be a convenient one-night stopover on our way up north, but staying longer-term in a MH would be a challenge.

A clean and well-run park with terrific views. Sites are right on top of each other so big MHs may need some extra maneuvering to get in and out. Our lot was not very level (required digging a divot for one side while raising the other). Our sewage hookup was uphill of our site by a few inches, which meant some extra mechanics to drain our tanks. The view was among the best we had for all of the RV parks we visited in Alaska (6 altogether).

Park is clean and well-run. We liked the setting--lots of trees and a pleasant stream (to which to listen, not in which to swim!). The staff was courteous and helpful. Getting to the park off the Seward Highway is a little tricky for a large MH--dirt roads with several turns--but the signage is clear. Although we didn't use the service, several of the local tour companies ran their shuttles to the park. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were all clean and well-maintained. The laundry included recent-model front-loading washing machines and dryers. We would definitely come again.
