We camped at a waterside site that had a spectacular view of Resurrection Bay and glaciers on the far coastline. Showers are a bit rustic, but the people are friendly and the sites offer plenty of room to spread out a bit. The park is located outside of town toward Lowell Point and is a far better option than the overcrowded campsites in town.
Prior to taking our trip to Alaska to celebrate my son's 10th wedding anniversary with his family I did my due diligence on-line to secure the best sites for our trip. I made my reservation and confirmed a beach view site on March 9th, 2007. I called several times prior to our arrival to make sure that the reservation was set and we would have the site we wanted. When we arrived on July 17th, 2007 after travelling 4,500 miles from Michigan we were informed that the site we reserved in March, 2007 had been double booked. The young girl behind the counter was very apologetic, but that did not make up for the fact that we were given a take it or leave it offer to move to another site after multiple calls to confirm the reservation. The owner showed up later and when confronted with our disappointment, she did nothing to make things right. In fact, she accused me of being a liar and said that we had reserved the site after the current occupants. Too bad she had not been there earlier when the young woman behind the counter told us that we had just recently been bumped for the current occupants. The owner did not offer any discount for her mistake and we were extremely disappointed. The sites are very narrow and we did not have much room to use in the site we were given. We only stayed one night and moved to Heritage RV park on the spit the next day. Heritage is more expensive, but at least the folks that work there are honest. If you don't mind being bumped or fighting for a site that has been double booked then this is the place to go. Otherwise, there are many other options in Homer.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The park has many great waterfront sites with spectacular views of Kachemak Bay and glaciers along the far shoreline. The sites have plenty of space and we were able to stretch out and enjoy our stay with our grandchildren.
