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. …
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.
