Rivers Edge RV Park & Campground
In the banks of the Chena River, this Fairbanks campsite is perfect to stop for a few nights on your way. The nightly rate is $54, and you get electric hookups, water, bathrooms, laundry, a restaurant and even a lovely souvenir shop. However, be warned that the terrain is quite rough, so be careful while driving in.
Big Bear RV Park and Campground
Located in Palmer, Alaska, this is a typical Alaskan campground. At a price of $50 per night, you can enjoy a few amenities such as water and electric, hookups, laundry, bathrooms and showers. The floor is gravel, but there are nice grass strips between sites that give it a cleaner look. This campground is very quiet and perfect if you’re looking for a calm, relaxing vacation.
Heritage RV Park
In the city of Homer, Alaska, you can find the Heritage RV Park. It has quite a few amenities so the price might be a little expensive – $65 per night. However, if you have no issue with the price, it’s a great camping site with wi-fi and cable tv. You also get fire rings and picnic tables, which is quite nice, and if you’re travelling with your pet, you’ll have no issues here.
Northern Nights Campground
At $40 per night, you can get a good value for money in the Northern Nights Campground. Located in Glennallen, Alaska, the campsite includes showers, picnic tables, a dump station and wifi. Perfect if you’re looking to stop and park in a quiet place. Users mention that the facilities are extremely clean so it’s ideal to stay for a bit and explore the surroundings.
Seaview RV Park & Campground
If you’re a fan of rough camping, you’ll love the Seaview RV Park. There is a cafe and bar if you’re not in the mood for cooking, and a great mountain view. You can also fish in the river close by, and in summer evenings the bar comes to life with live music. Not the campground for you if you’re looking for peace and quiet, but ideal if you’re travelling with friends for good fun. The nightly rate is $30.
Peterson Lake Campground
If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, this is a free campground right in the middle of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. You’ll love this place; if you get there early, you might snatch one of the lovely lake view sites. If you don’t, the lake is still close by if you walk just for a bit. It does get crowded in the summer, but we definitely recommend it.
Swanson River Campground
Another riverside campground, except the Swanson River Campground is for free. If you love canoeing and want a sporty vacation in a secluded spot, this is the way to go. The place offers fire rings and picnic tables, and it is also a pet-friendly location. Ideal for canoe and water sports fanatics.
Klondike RV Park & Cottages
This RV Park is well-known for its lovely ambiance with very helpful staff and an awesome community vibe that will make anyone feel at home. The facilities are very clean and taken care of, so you can expect a comfortable stay. Nightly rate is $50, but it is not that much when you think of the amenities: full hookups, laundry, showers, wifi, picnic tables… One of our favourites.
Swiftwater Park & Campground
If you love fishing, you’ll love the Swiftwater Park & Campground. Kenai River is at walking distance, and Swiftwater is a lot quieter than the Centennial Park. The spots are on the larger side with picnic tables and fire rings. There’s also boat access in the campground, firewood and water available. All in all, a great choice at $21 per night.
Morgans Landing State Rec Area
If peace and quiet is your idea of a perfect vacation, Morgans Landing State Rec Area is the right spot for you. The park sites are quite large, which is nice if you rent a bigger RV. Every site has its own picnic table and fire pit. If you’re on a budget, the nightly rate is only $15, which is quite reasonable for the amenities provided.
So, are you ready to take on Alaska with your rental RV? We promise you’ll love it, and the lakes and rivers in the area make this place perfect for a fishing trip, boating, and many other options.
