We had the trip of a lifetime the 23 mile road up was nice on brand new utv the views of the river are spectacular and worth the trip alone, Skyler worked hard to put us on fish and we were successful in taking king salmon my daughter had a blast catching such a big fish I highly recommend booking a charter.

We had a group of 6 stay in the two cabins for 3 nights. They are very basic but we just needed a place to sleep. There was a grill and a stove burner. Pots, pans, utensils and microwave were included in the cabin. Both cabins had flush toilets snd a sink. But no hot water. Showers and laundry were available by the office. We did a full day guided fishing trip and had a blast. It was a very long day over a very bumpy road and floated 24 miles but we caught fish and didn’t see any other boats on the river. Don’t expect luxury but if you want a unique experience KFAD is worth it.

Thanks, Amanda, for taking time to write a review. Return customers often say we never fail to deliver the most unique and fun charter they've been on, thanks to the skill of our amazing guides who teach and help you experience the great fishing the Klutina River offers. We are constantly making improvements as time and money allows. Our newest addition are 6 seater side by side ATVs to transport our charter guests up that bumpy road for a fun and faster trip. Our guests say the side by side ride is an excursion in itself! The salmon runs are excellent this year with the kings running very large, and we are allowed to retain 2 per person (instead of the usual 1 ). Our sockeye run is also exceptional this year both in numbers and size. Hope to see you again real soon!

Great location. Quiet due to less tourists. We had two nights. Water and electricity hook up worked fine. Views were nice. No showers due to COVID. They seemed to have great fishing charters on rafts full day 12 hour trip. Most excellent camp host “Craig”. Offered great fishing advice.

The King For a Day Campground is a great campsite for hanging out and fishing. Right on the river and the road. What could be simpler. Plenty of sites. We were lucky enough to get right next to the river. While it was full, it didn't feel crowded or loud. Will definitely be back for some rafting and fishing adventures next year!

No big rigs !!!! We have a 40 ft 5th wheel. When we called for reservations we were told no problem for big rigs. Not exactly true. There are a couple places big enough but had only electric no water no sewer. Pros: most sites are wooded with several along the river You need a camper less than 30 ft Cons: 1. no sign on the main road where to turn. There is a sign that says campground in .02 mi but nothing else You have to guess which road to turn on. The sign is 200 yards off the main road 2. To enter the campground road you must turn very sharp hairpin switchback. 3. No one in the office and no notice when coming back. Sign says take any site or see camp host. Camp host was gone too. 4. Our reservation was for full hookup. There are 6 sites that have full hookup and all were taken and only a couple more with water. 5. Campground roads are very narrow. Not big rig friendly.

Hey Bluedog1400, Sorry you had a difficult time getting in with your big rig. There are rules about signs on the highway, so we aren't able to post them like you would like. There is an easy way for big rigs to get in without the sharp turn. If you are heading south towards Valdez: AFTER you cross the KLUTINA River (there will be a sign on it) take your 2nd left onto a paved road, "The Old Richardson Highway" you will go around a mild curve, then take your first left onto a gravel road; keep to the right on that road (taking the branch to the left will bring you back to the main highway) and it will take you right into our camp. Since your stay we have added 4 more water and electric pull through sites and all overnight guests may use our dump station at no extra charge. We also added 8 water and electric back in sites as well. We make improvements every year as money allows. Sorry no one was in the office when you arrived. We all wear many hats and she may have been getting a cabin ready or cleaning the laundromat; a sign should reflect that and direct you to call a number that would connect to her cell. Our roads may have improved since your last visit as we had a 40' shipping container delivered by a large semi truck and he had plenty of room to maneuver his rig. I hope you'll give us another try sometime, I believe we have the most and the largest sites in the area.

This place is a gem. Right on the river. Fair prices for camping. But what really made this great were the people working at KFAD. Christy, Skyler, Tyler, Craig, and Kevin all made our day psectacular.

If you are looking for an enjoyable camping experience, that offers guided fishing trips on the Klutina Rivera, than King for a Day is the ideal choice. Our guide, Skylar, knows the river very well. We caught our limit within a couple of hours, and thoroughly enjoyed the rafting trip back to our campsite. The campground staff, Christy, Aspen, and Craig, are genuine and welcoming, and our camping neighbors quickly became our friends. Our next trip to Alaska, will definitely include a stop at King for a Day.

We had a great time at King for a Day campground. The reason we selected this place after our internet research was the idea of being able to camp and go for a guided fishing trip from the same place. We were able to set up our RV and go fishing without having to leave the campground. Our guide, Skylar (the "Sockeye Slayer"), was absolutely superb. All four of us caught our full limit of both Sockeye and Kings. All of that said, I would be remiss not to mention Christy who made sure to make our stay the best possible and who solved all of our problems along with Aspen who went out of her way to help us with any need. Our group plans to return over and over again.

Stayed here a few nights for fishing on the Klutina and a visit to Wrangell St Elias NP. You cannot beat the location as it is right up on the river. We arrived on July 5 and the garbage was overflowing. It was never emptied in the 3 days we stayed there. It was hard to get rid of our trash and just gave a bad impression. They have a laundry which is great but only 1 of 3 washers was working and only 2 of 3 dryers. It just gave the impression that the place was not being well looked after. I wish I could give a better review because the young owner and his partner were very nice people. Just not what we expected.

Response from KFADCampground, Manager at King For A Day Campground & RV Park
Responded Aug 1, 2017
Hey pricklypear143, thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear your trip was less than satisfactory as we are constantly striving to improve our campground one bit at a time each year as it is a little on the older side. This year alone we renovated our women's restroom and repurposed a shed from the lower bank as our new wood shed, and we have plans to re-do one of our outhouses. Ask any of our long-time, returning customers and they will happily boast about the improvements we have implemented over the short amount of time that we have taken over the campground. Unfortunately, one of our washer machines did happen to die on us this year right before the 4th of July (the first broken washer and the broken dryer both came with the purchase of the property). We understand how these inconveniences may have affected, not only your stay, but others' stay as well, and have already made plans to replace these older machines next season, placing them as a high priority item on our to-do list. As for the dumpsters, we are on a tipping schedule for Mondays with the local sanitation company. Seeing as the 4th of July landed on Tuesday this year, no one had their dumpsters tipped until after the festivities were said and done and, from what we've been told by the company as well as other local businesses, unfortunately, no one had "tidy" dumpsters that weekend. We do apologize that you had a difficult time with this. We fully appreciate your feedback and would love for you to consider revisiting our campground next year to see these improvements implemented firsthand, and to see just how dedicated we are to improving this campground. Each year we are striving to add more and to fix-up what we already have because we truly love this place. We thank you for visiting us and our campground, and we hope to see you next year!

We spent almost 3 weeks at King for a Day campground. We had a nice private spot for two trailers. Laundry. Showers and bathrooms we nice. We could walk down to the river or hike up to the mouth. The owner Skyler and Dominique work really hard to make it fun for all. We will stay there again!
