We stayed here out of necessity. All the campgrounds in Denali were full and after calling 4 other privately owned campgrounds, we figured we'd better take what we could get. The website seemed promising so we made our reservation and looked forward to our first night of tent camping in Alaska! The tent sites were located next to one of... More

This place was a HUGE disappointment. We booked our reservation for a family of 7 for 2 RV spots with full-hookups for 5 nights a year in advance. The people we spoke to on the phone were wonderful. However, when we went to check in, we discovered they were under new management. No one knew what they were doing. One... More

Contacted the RV Park 3 times after my reservation; last time was day prior to arrival via phone. Nobody bothered to tell me that they no longer had potable water ate the RV sites. In fact, the guy I spoke to one the phone day prior actually asked me if "..anyone had told me about the water..." when we arrived... More

Horrible campground! Holes big enough to lose your tow in! Tall grass, mud, everything in bad repair. Stay away! Would not encourage anyone to stay here! Mattresses laying in the tall grass. People who do not know how to check you in or understand what you are saying.

Nice convenience store, horrible RV park. Rutted full service sites, no care or maintenance at all. Looks like a junkyard more than a RV park. Lied to me when I made the reservation months ago. And then lied to me when I asked about availability to change sites. I told them I didn't even care about full hookups, I would... More

My husband and I stay at this place at least once per year. We've always stayed because it was clean, has a great little store attached to it and had clean showers. It next door to a great restaurant so that was always nice as well. The last two years they've had water problems, as in, there is either no... More

The roads in the camp ground are narrow, very narrow and the corners to tight to make a turn. It appears there are many full time campers there so lots of vehicles parked making the roads even narrower. The parking places are very close together with no privacy.. The positive is it is within walking distance to the 49th State... More

The photos featured on their website and trip advisor are outdated at the time of this posting. Management made right by us after cancelling half of our reservation and provided showers as they had to move our RV to hook up free site. There is a lack of privacy at most sites and some sites are directly off of the... More

We picked this campground because it is conveniently located for a visit of Denali N.P. Check-in is at the gas station. The young man who checked us in was very friendly, other employees we had to do with during our stay were rather unfriendly, seemed incompetent and did not speak English that well. We wanted full hookup, but were told... More

Be Aware that the photos on the website are dated and the campground and restrooms, etc, have a lot more wear than shown. We had reservations but like others have said when you arrive they are mixed up. Staff were helpful but you can tell that management is struggling. We used the shuttle and were stranded at Denali Visitor Center... More
