Alaska Waters RV is clean and quiet with a pleasant atmosphere. The onsite manager was very professional and extremely nice. The owner, Jim Leslie, was also very nice and went above and beyond in helping our family out in a difficult situation.

Fun trip. Beautiful scenery. Lots of history and info. The trip up Shakes Slough is better than an E-Ticket ride at Disneyland!
