We left NJ heading For Alaska in our RV. Traveled across the northern states, through Canada to Tok AK. Headed South got to Big Bear RV Park, between Wasilla and Palmer. This is the best RV park we have been in this whole trip!!! Even better than many parks on the east coast to Florida! We never stayed in a park with free air!
This park is a welcome respite after traveling several thousand miles in the “Last Frontier”. We’ve parked our RV in more neglected, run down parks than we care to remember. This park is clean, well managed and has breathtaking views of the Alaskan Range. It is quiet, close to services, and has a friendly, courteous staff. Don’t miss this park, it’s a gem!
The reception was very good and fast. We stayed here for 3 nights to tour the area. It is a parking lot style campground but you have a piece of lawn and a picnic table. It is situated in a type of industrial area so it is relatively quiet. There was some traffic noise from the nearby freeway but didn't keep us awake. It is about 45 minutes from Anchorage. I used the laundry room which was very nice. Well maintained and clean. They have a interesting layout for the smaller units. They have back-ins arranged in a circle so they are all facing in. In the centre is a gazebo with picnic tables and a fire pit.
nice well kept rv, our two boys especially liked the playground. The staff was very friendly. the communal area in the middle invites to barbecue. the spots themselves also have fire rings, so there is also the possibility for a private fire.
This place has fantastic mountain views from many vantages. It has a picnic area where we could gather as it was raining. The park seemed very quiet and the rest rooms were nice. We booked at the last minute and the gal who took our reservation was great.
