The staff and office are very organized and the park is very clean. The spaces are close together, graveled and raked. We didn't use any of the facilities but it would not surprise me to find them clean and well kept. 30/50 amp full hookups, showers and latrine.
300 yds off the freeway so it's kinda noisy. It's better than a rest stop tho. $42 a night, 30/50amp and full hookups. Laundry, showers and bathrooms onsite. Hosts are hard to contact after 5.
This was a convenient stop when travelling from the grand canyon area south towards Phoenix. The town of Wikieup is very small with a trading post, a couple gas stations and 2 open diners. The campground sites were close together and the bathroom/shower facilities were clean. The onsite laundry facility was handy after boondocking for 2 weeks. The onsite diner was only open monday thru thursday, but there is another diner open daily just 5 min down the road. Overall, the campground was in need of a little "sprucing up", the owners were very nice, friendly, and helpful; and it lacks shade from the hot az sun.
This camping area has lots of sites, lots of campers, and lots of atv's. The road in is narrow and graveled and most sites are fairly close to the road. Being so close to Flagstaff, I feel a lot of people come out here from town to ride and play. It is VERY dusty from all the traffic and offroaders, and there are people target shooting in multiple spots and partying late into the am.
Very nice clean rv park with well spaced campsites. Have yet to use the vault toilets or dumpsters so no opinion yet. Reserve and FFS sites there is a dumpsite and water, and some of the sites have electric. There are tent sites as well. Having been here through the afternoon/evening, I have to add that this campground is a bit noisy with hwy traffic and pets. I have to add that the staff here are very nice and helpful.
A lot of people spend alot of money just to GET to this part of Alaska to go halibut and salmon fishing, only to be hit with high campground, charter, and access fees. This is a great free campground within reach of Soldotna Ak. The Kenai peninsula as a whole is commonly referred to as "the playground of Alaska. My wife and I and our 3 kids used to come here often to get away from the crowds during the summer tourist season. There is also boat access to a number of first come forest service cabins on the lake. The road in can be very washboard at times because there is a popular boat launch here for fishing sockeye salmon on the Kasilof river, and silver salmon fishing in a creek that flows into the lake. The campsites will accommodate anything from tents to large rv's. There is a pump handle on a well onsite for potable water and pit toilets.
This is a very nice spot in a section of forrest that was logged a few years ago. The dirt road in is good, a little washboard, but overall wide and solid. There are many spots to camp and fit anything from tents to 28-30 foot travel trailers/5th wheels and large diesel pushers. We came in late on a Saturday evening and had to settle for a roadside spot with no shade. Sunday afternoon however, the weekenders started pulling out and we were able to find a nice secluded spot in the trees further away from the road and other campers. This is a great jump-off spot to see the grand canyon or the sights in historic Williams az and route 66.
There is nothing around except the Ak hwy and its traffic. I've spent the night here in early April, and late Sept, and froze my butt off both times so timing is everything. It is a beutiful area and a nice place to stop at the end of the day on your way south.
We lived in this area for 40 yrs. This is not the only campground in this park. There are a number of small lakes and even a canoe trail connecting many of them. The campgrounds range from ones with tables and fire rings , to tent spots with no amenities and a short drive to the pit toilets. There is no water, cell service, or hookups anywhere close by and It is a long dirt road fom the main hwy. It is well maintained. Unless it's been raining, then it can be bumpy and muddy. A 20 foot trailer is about all anyone would fit in most spots. Randy
