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).
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!).
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.
