“Decent wooded park in the middle of town. Lots of traffic noise.”

Reviewed Jun 26, 2019

Overall Rating

Reservations Recommended/Walk up sites. Electric, water, and dump on site. This is a nice urban state park, set right in the middle of town by the Chena River. Lots of traffic noise from nearby roads. Shopping is within walking distance. Sites are large with picnic tables and fire pits. No park ranger enforcing rules and no camp host a... more

“Noisy, woodsy but right in town.”

We got a site with electric because solar in most sites would look to be a challenge for all the trees. With the exception of the road around the park that's not paved and could use a grating and low flying airplane noise, this was a great Park close to everything. Has a dump and potable water if you choose the economical sites witho... more

“Beautiful spot ruined by lack of law enforcement ”

We had to be in Fairbanks for RV repairs, and had to wait our turn for those repairs. We thought staying in a State Park would be great. The sites are beautiful, wooded, and large. Some have no hookups, some electric only, and some water and electric, and the prices change with what amenities the site has (20, 25, 30 per night). Unfo... more

I'm from Fairbanks, so I have been to this park many times for company functioned cookouts in the day use area. Last summer while transitioning to living full-time in our camper we had to swing back into town for a few days to deal with final preparations of hitting the road. We knew what to expect, and that is nice sights, in a nice... more

“Urban Camping”

Reviewed Aug 10, 2017

Overall Rating

On the upside the campground is located centrally to Fairbanks. A few campsites have water and electrical ($30 per night), but those were all taken when we arrived at 2:00 pm, so we took a site without services ($20 per night). Campsites are reasonably large and private. On the downside the campground is immediately adjacent to Un... more

“Great spot to camp within Fairbanks city limits!”

Reviewed Nov 02, 2014

Overall Rating

This campground caters to RVs as well as tent campers. The grounds are well maintained and we loved it's convenient location within the city of Fairbanks. This means excellent cell phone/data reception which is scarce in most parts of Alaska. It has 56 RV sites, with or without electric hookups ($20/$30 respectively). The sites are den... more
