My rating would be 5 for short-term guests and 3 for long-term guests. The campground is in a great location near the glacier and not far from the ferry terminal. About 20-25 minutes to downtown. Friendly staff. Well-kept grounds. Utilities work great. Several nice areas to just hang out. The reason I give 3 for long-term guests mostly revolves around their punitive fine for owning a washing machine. I was fined $40 per month just for owning a washing machine. As a single RVer, I use half of the water that a couple would use. Even adding in the 35 or so gallons to do laundry once a week, I would still use significantly LESS than a couple without a washing machine. Yet I had to pay significantly more. My pleas for logic fell on deaf ears. There are also a few annoyances for long-term guests. The park refuses to allow mail to be forwarded to the park. They expect guests to mow weeds. They also send out nastygrams if you exceed the 5mph speed limit by one. But again, short-term guests should enjoy their stay.

Response from Glacier N, Front Office Manager at Glacier Nalu Campground Resort
Responded Oct 3, 2019
Dear Michael, Thank you for your review. We appreciate any feedback we receive so we can improve our overall quality and guest experience at the campground. We would like to clarify our requirements for long term residents living at the park. First, all residents who stay at our campground need to go through an application process and are provided park rules and regulations prior to moving in. The rules and regulations agreement addresses all of your concerns in this review. Residents who have a washer in their rig, no matter how many occupants they have pay a $40.00 monthly fee. This is not a fine, but a fee for extra water consumption. We appreciate you bringing this concern to our attention and we will reconsider lowering this fee for next year. Our campground does not have the resources to receive and distribute mail for all of our residents, therefore we ask everyone to set up PO boxes prior to moving in to the park. However, we do allow packages to be delivered to our office. We pride ourselves in having a very clean, well-kept campground. To keep to this standard, we do require residents keep their sites clutter-free and ask they perform periodic weed removal around their assigned site during the summer. We have a 5 mph speed limit throughout the park which is a very standard speed limit for any RV Park/Campground. This speed limit is enforced for the safety of all our guests, residents and yourself. We have many people walking around the park including families with small kids. Whenever a guest drives regularly over the speed limit, they will be contacted by our staff and given a friendly reminder to slow down. Safety is our number one priority at the park. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and provide us some feedback. Sincerely, Glacier Nalu Management

We came here on our trip north to stay for 3 days and it was really worth it. The ladies in the office are so friendly and helpful. The amenities are awesome, everything clean and decorated with love and devotion to pamper the guests and make them feel comfy. There is even a TV in the laundry room. Great job in managing this place, very recommendable!!

We arrived in Juneau on a Saturday evening with reservations to stay at another RV Park, which didn't work out. At 9:15pm, I spoke with Linda at Spruce Meadow RV Park and she said "come on over." So we arrived around 9:30pm and Corrine was there to meet us, check us in, give us all kinds of great information, and guide us to our site and help us get backed in and hooked up (in the rain). Wonderful, amazing customer service. We were so thankful for their help and for providing such a great RV park - clean, great washrooms and laundry, nice sites, and extra amenities such as shelters for tenters and outdoor eating. Close to Mendenhall Glacier, an easy drive to Juneau, and close to shopping. We would stay here again, no doubt. Highly recommend it.
