We've been Kenai Riverfront RV campers for 12 years and we think it is undoubtedly one of the best RV resort on the river. The red fishing is awesome, you're with in easy easy reach by boat of the great kings holes. This resort is also convenient to local services. Jim & Cindy & their kids have made this a... More

Our family has been going to Alaska for almost ten years now. We love to fish the Kenai. We have stayed at different hotels and homes in our past, but this resort has it all!! We love Jim , Cindy and the kids. They are so nice. This location on the river is ideal, great fishing on the shore and... More

You would think for 300+ a night you'd have a nice cabin....think again. remodeled garage stall. No ventilation options. Owners weren't even around. They did have WIFI, big deal. I've told all everyone going to area to stay clear. Never again.

Unbelievable! Seven months after their stay this customer writes a negative review after having never raised any concern during their stay or after. While we were away due to a family emergency during their stay, this guest was certainly not neglected. With our campground hosts greeting them and available to assist or answer any questions, and our young adult daughter... More

Thanks you Jim and Cindy for a wonderful experience. The eleven members of our family had such a wonderful time being with you and your family. This was our first time with motor homes and y'all made it so easy. The four days with you were so special for my five grandchildren. They all caught sockeye salmon and now my... More

After our check for $128 for just one-night's stay went through before we even arrived, I expected and was looking forward to superb kid-friendly service for my four kids. Upon arriving, we learned that Cindy had forgotten we were even coming (and this was after speaking with her on the phone three nights previously). Fortunately, management had not given away...

Most disappointing 1 night guests ever! For nearly 15 years we've made EXTRA efforts to not only WELCOME guests traveling with kids, but do all we can to ensure they have a good, safe camping and fishing experience--often going above and beyond to help teach first time kids how to fish salmon, fillet fish, offer them use of camp toys,...

After requesting a "FULL HOOK-UP SITE" in writing February 2013, and after paying $3,515 in advance for a two-month stay, we arrived only to see that there was electric only (that’s right -- approx. $58/night for electric only!). Who in the world would stay 2 months to go fishing and clamming, can & smoke fish, etc., where there aren't full... More

This is the first & only negative review we've received from a guest in 11 years of operation, please don't believe it for a second! This guest booked an RV site very quickly and simply didn't listen to exactly what we offered in terms of electric, water & septic with our RV campsites. We have never had septic on-site for...

Wife and I just got back from a week at Riverfront and had a spectacular time. Weather was great, fishing was great, and Jim & Cindy were as hospitable as ever - even more! Since last year they have upgraded the suite with new beds and an overall face-lift. The suite is intimate, comfortable, and has all the amenities that... More

We stayed at this property for 1 night in June when the owners were not around. Spoke with Jim (the owner) and he agreed to let us stay on the property. We arrived a little late in the day but because of the continuous sunlight and the precise directions that Jim gave us over the phone, we were OK in... More

We stayed just one night in September 2012, but Sandy & Jim made us feel so welcome and were very accommodating so that my husband could get his fishing experience on the Kenai River even though it was the end of the season. He liked the fishing on the Kenai in the Saldotna River Park too that Sandy recommended because... More
