“Over Priced. Over Crowded. Inconsiderate Campers”

I’ll begin with this.. this campground has AMAZING potential to be THE spot in Seward. The views are incredible, we loved the location and how it wasn’t directly in town but literally a 5-10 minute drive from anywhere in Seward you wanted to be, we loved the beach access, and what Miller’s Landing has to offer other than camping is awesome. The staff we had help us were incredibly friendly and willing to help. Here is where I think they have gone wrong...

Packing too many people into their campground, LITERALLY blocking in tent campers with RV Pads right in front of the tent site field, not enforcing a leash rule, and the price for electric site only... $40 WOW. We did it because we wanted to get out and camp this past weekend, but likely NEVER again. Noise. The... NOISE.

Even at half capacity the place was packed. Our RV blocked in our tent camp neighbors. I’m saying they could have licked our camper from their tent had they wanted to, and then in front of them was another RV pad (currently housing a ML water taxi). Their views were literally of a boat and camper. I’d have been so upset had I been them. ML should really consider taking the RV pads out from right beside the tent field like that.

Let’s talk dogs. I’m all about dogs not being on leashes if they have incredible recall. Otherwise, leashes are so needed, especially in areas where you are packed in like sardines. We were approached by SEVERAL dogs that were roaming the whole camp area where we were. My boy is not a huge fan of other dogs being near my daughter. I was terrified it would cause an issue when we were the ones being respectful of other people’s space. I’m not sure if the campground has a leash rule, we just assume they all do, but if not.. they should, and they should enforce it the best they can. This is really one of the biggest reasons we won’t be back.

$40 for an electric only site that didn’t even have a picnic table or a fire pit.. most all other sites did and ours didn’t. It was a disappointment. It was likely because of where our site was, it wasn’t really a site at all but more of a “ah we can fit more RVs right here..” our camp area was right in the walking path to the washrooms and laundry, so maybe that’s why they didn’t offer a picnic table or fire pit.

Inconsiderate campers bringing an amp, electric guitar, I believe a saxophone, and who knows what else then allowing middle school/high school kids to blare it through the campground on their amp. I’m all for playing music, bringing your guitars and having a campfire jam... that doesn’t go past really your own campsite. Not everyone loves a garage band jam session when they are trying to relax by the beach. Not to mention the crowds it drew to our campsite bc they were right by our site playing. It wasn’t ideal and we decided to actually leave that evening to enjoy a more quiet location. I know I may sound like a prude here, and I’m usually all for doing your thing, but it’s not everyone’s thing so keeping it to your own campsite is what keeps that sort of camping enjoyable for you and others around you.

I cannot speak of the cleanliness as I didn’t use the bathhouse.

The good:
Seward is awesome. There's endless fun stuff to do here, from hiking to Exit Glacier, taking a boat tour of Kenai Fjords National Park, going on a sea fishing charter, hiking Marathon Mountain, hiking the Coastal Trail by Tonsina Point, salmon fishing in the streams, checking out the shops and restaurants in town, etc.

Miller's Landing, on the surface, is pretty cool. The drive into Miller's Landing is along a narrow, gravel road that hugs the side of the mountain, with a sharp drop into the water on the other side... so it's not for the faint of heart!

When we arrived, we were greeted with epic views of the water and surrounding mountains and glaciers. Many of the sites back up to the water, but all of them are within view of it. There are also tent sites and cabins, a laundry facility, bathroom, pier and fish cleaning station. This park is in a residential area on the outskirts of Seward, so it's pretty far from the main shopping area and cruise port (probably a good thing, as the internet doesn't suffer when the crowds arrive).

The bad:
I had called several weeks in advance to book a reservation, specifying the length of our vehicle truck and fifth wheel combo. We were assured that we were good to go in a site that was perfect for us.

On the day we arrived, we checked in and were given our site assignment. When we walked over to look at our assigned site, we realized there was no way we could get into the spot. Only a van or a little Class C could have made the sharp turn. We went to the office to request a different site, and we were told that everyone else had been given a specific site number, and that it was our fault that we couldn't get into the site they had selected for us. They were unwilling to check with any other guests who hadn't arrived yet to see if they'd be interested in switching with us, and they also revealed that they don't take down RV size information, so they'd had no idea how big we were, or how big any other guests who hadn't arrived yet were.

Then we were told another site had opened up, so we went to check it out. While we were out there, they then told us that someone had called on the phone and booked it right then and there, and that we were back to square 1.

We asked why we couldn't have preference of choosing a spot over someone who had just booked, considering we had made our reservation weeks in advance, and they shrugged it off, saying we should just leave and go to the RV park in town. We had our parents with us, who had rented a cabin at Miller's Landing, however, and we didn't want to abandon them without a car. So we finally got them to agree to switch our site with the empty one next to it.

Around the time we got settled in, our neighbors arrived in a tiny Class C that zipped in without a problem.

Additionally, we booked a tour of Kenai Fjords National Park through Miller's Landing, but they didn't alert us to any discounts, like senior discounts, that we were eligible for. As a result, we overpaid for our tour (although it was 110% worth doing -- just bring Dramamine!).

Bottom line:
For the steep price, difficult road, and uncertainty of whether or not we would fit into our site, we wouldn't stay here again. Instead, we'd pick either Spring Creek Campground or the city campground right by the Aquatic Life Center.
