A single night of a dry campsite for tent camping cost $31 here, which is an extremely high price to pay to set up a tent for the night. Bathrooms were absolutely filthy, and showers were dirty enough that only the funkiest travelers would likely use them. As for service: the clerk that I reserved a campsite through gave me...

From our trip to Alaska, this was the worst RV camp. Though the camp was full hookup, location of dump was weird and dirty. The restrooms, showers and site itself was very dirty. Maintenance is bad.Its off the main road. Loud music in the nite. Would not recommend.

This place double-booked our reservation, which we made sure to make 2 weeks early - even drove down to Healy to personally check out and reserve. Then when we arrived on the date we were to stay, were told the two sites we reserved were not available and were extremely rude about it. Ended up staying in another site on...

Better to camp on the side of a road. Road into the campsite is rutted, not maintained and surrounded by machinery. No place to walk, especially if you have dogs. The place floods; has huge puddles when it rains. Bathrooms were smelly and quite a walk from the camping area. Store is poorly stalked; no place for kids to play....

This place is way oversold on its website. Dumpy, poorly maintained park, lousy expensive showers, poorly stocked market.... No point to continue. Yes it is cheap. Yes it is well located. And, yes there are sites available ( connect the dots ). No records of reservations. They are still in business b/c of location only

I tried to book the campsite online and didn't realize they charged me double. When I arrived, the people who checked us in said they could not refund me and told me to email reservations@mckinleyRV.com. I have heard no response. I know it isn't a ton of money, but the website UI/UX was so terrible how was I to know...

Sites were over grown. We could barely find the sewer. Showers and laundry up a huge set of stairs or by car. Fire rings scattered rocks. Terrible pot holes. Only reason gave it two stars is because The 49th State Brewery next door and that was fun and good food.

Website is classic example of false advertising! Run-down and dirty. My husband returned from the restroom thoroughly disgusted. Worst rv site we have ever experienced! Wish we had read the reviews before booking.

Fine, not great, but OK. Honestly none of the RV parks with full hookups are fabulous. They all resemble big parking lots. All charge for showers. The state and national parks are so much better but no hookups, no showers, at best they might have portapotties.

“Denali is a wild place, be polite and patient with your international service staff. In AK reservations don't seem to always be guarantee of services but they do love to barter! There are wooded sites but they're closer to the road, RV sites are close together and ask for a site away from the former bath/pump house as it's a little smelly. GO TO THE 49th BREWERY!!”
