unhappy faceThe two RV Gypsies stayed at this campground because it had a restaurant on site and since Lee just spent 5 hours fixing a broken hose on the RV, he was tired and thought this would be convenient. However, the menu consisted of hamburgers, a polish dog, reindeer chili, pie and ice cream. Karen does not consider this a dinner or a meal, especially since they had no lunch on this date, but she had to settle for the polish dog. Yuck!

The grounds had a lot of junk all around. They called it an "outdoor museum."


Lee also chose this campground because of the "pancake toss" where someone might win a free breakfast in the morning if they can throw a pancake into the bucket. Each person got two tries. The first was a practice throw. (One lady got the first pancake in the bucket, but that did NOT count for the free breakfast. She missed on the second throw, so no free breakfast for her.)

But before the throws began each person was asked to introduce themselves, say where they are from and anything else they wanted to say. That took a long time and Karen was already bored, plus she was getting bit by mosquitos.

Neither of the two RV Gypsies won the pancake breakfast (actually, nobody won). Lee took a photo of Karen trying, and Karen took a video of Lee trying.

Below: The RV of the two RV Gypsies. The roads and sites were gravel, and the site of the two RV Gypsies was very long pull-thru, wide, and nicely shaded. No TV. Wi-Fi at office and cafe, not at sites. No sewer was available when the two RV Gypsies checked in, although the campground map showed 13 sites full hook-up. As usual, Alaska does not have pools. Campfires and fire pits not permitted. Standard campground rules applied. Check out time was 11 a.m.

Note: Comments made here do not make the campground good or bad in general. They are just the personal observations of the two RV Gypsies on a certain date. The two RV Gypsies are not "campers". Their RV is their only home. They park their RV in various campgrounds, and then they leave the campground and spend most of the day exploring the area. So they seldom use any of the amenities offered at the campground, except hopefully having full hook-ups, cable TV and Wi-Fi on their site. Everyone has different expectations from a campground, based on their own personal needs.
