Location, location, location. This campground is situated right on the water. If you are going to stay in a campground in town then you could give this one a try. It was a little more buggy than the other two parking lot ones.
Make sure to stop at the visitor center on the way in right before the campground. There is a quick hike to a waterfall just behind it.
Campground had nice amenities and was clean. It’s tight between spots and depending on your camper door location you may be walking out staring at your neighbors septic drain. The eagle feeding was awesome but heard they are no longer doing that. Easy to walk downtown and to the park by the historical museum. We stayed there 2019 Memorial weekend.
If all your visit Valdez for is to be gone all day on the water ok, but this place is still a bit higher in price than it's worth. Tight and I mean tight spaces, no room for awnings if your neighbor has parked wrong. No fire pits so no fires. Just a large gravel lot, I was surprised they have full hookups but all 4 of the RV parks here do so choose another if you want privacy and no to be sardines in a gravel can.
First trip to Valdez and we stayed here due to a recommendation. Prices were, in my opinion, a little steep considering what you got. RV spots were TIGHT and awning to awning with your neighbor. Entire place was a gravel parking lot. They do have a nice facility with clean restrooms and showers, fun community fire pit and nice views. You’re literally right in town. You must pay in advance, of course and they do not give refunds, period. We had to cut our trip short and we’re out the cost of a night of camping. Policies are there, which I can respect. We just didnt forsee our stay being shorter- only due to the fact that unless you’re out on the water, there really isn’t much to do there. All in all a fine experience, just not my kind of camping personally.
