“Poor location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The campground seems more like a parking lot than an actual campground. It is situated in an industrial area. The rail passes by and from time to time (even in the middle of the night) a train passes right next to the campground - using its horn and wakening up everybody.

We needed somewhere in the Anchorage area for our last night before returing our rented RV the following morning, and chose the Ship Creek RV park as we'd seen it advertised on-line and in "The Milepost". From the way it is advertised, you'd be forgiven for imagining it's located in landscaped, grassy parkland on the edges of a scenic inlet. The reality is quite a bit different, as it is located in a fairly run-down industrial area next to a busy railway line.

On arrival at 7pm on a Sunday evening we discovered the office had just closed, but there was a member of staff on the premises who advised us just to park in an empty site and pay our account the next morning. This was very helpful of her as otherwise our inclination would have been to turn round and try to find somewhere else.

It's a very large RV park, so there were plenty of sites available, although they are very close together, so if it were to get busy then noise/privacy could be an issue. Our site was also far from level and it took several experiments with different wooden block sizes before we could get a good level. We had full hook-up including TV which was all fully functional. Didn't use the shower block. Due to the time of year and hot, still weather, there were a serious amount of mosquitoes around, which made it difficult to sit outside in the evening.

Check-out the next morning was straightforward and the staff were friendly. I can't remember the rate but it was reasonable for the standard provided. Fine and functional for one night, but wouldn't particularly want to stay in this location for longer.

We tent camped here for 2 nights in August while waiting on our house in Anchorage to be ready. The management I dealt with during the day was very accommodating and let us park our large trailer in a adjacent spot without further charge. The bathrooms are clean with no additional charge for showers. Overall price expensive bit seems to be in accordance with AK standards.

The big thing that needs to be improved is the location. It is in a not-very-good part of town. Also, the railway runs literally right by the campsite and can be loud.

All in all, it offers a good place to RV/tent camp right in downtown which is great of that's what you need. But if you want to see the beauty (and quiet) of Alaska, go somewhere else!
