    The scenery is amazing, we loved camping next to the river and the access to town as well as the trails. The campground is not maintained very well and is overpriced for what it is. I was not a fan of the dirt bikes and ATV's speeding through the parking lot and road.

The campground is not maintained very well and is overpriced for what it is. I was not a fan of the dirt bikes and ATV's speeding through the parking lot and road. As a couple who also enjoy ATV's we felt that these people do a disservice to others who have common courtesy and respect for others who are there to enjoy the peace of camping. There was also a few pet owners who did not leash their pets. Again...We are also pet owners who do follow the rules and don't want our experience (or yours) spoiled by folks who don't follow the rules.We did not see the owner enforce the rules or check sites.Not trying to sound negative about this place because other then what has been mentioned it was one of the best outings we've had this year and i look forward to going back.

    Arrived late in the afternoon and it was about 80 percent full (early June). Some great spots along the river, but all taken. A few nice secluded spots in the woods.

A few nice secluded spots in the woods. Other spots were close together, so not much privacy. Bathrooms and showers ($6 for a shower) closed at 8 pm. Store had very few supplies. Outhouses were functional, but run down. Spots were mostly level. Some spots would be tight for an RV over 28 feet. About a 15 minute walk to town.

    Stayed here 10 years ago and had a relatively pleasant experience.

Now, in July of 2017, it appears ZERO maintenance has been done on the campground and little is done other than collecting fees!. It has been overtaken by Devil's Club and other weeds, the outhouses are rickety and toilet paper is hit or miss. Picnic tables are broken down, fire rings are a mess, etc.It's a shame, because with routine maintenance this could be a respectable campground. As it is, it appears that the owners don't put a single penny back into the place. Unfortunately, it's the only "game in town" so they get away with this sorry lack of attention.

    This is a great spot for a campground and it could be a very nice campground if the owner took more of an interest in it.

We had a lovely spot right beside the Talkeetna River and the campground is close to almost all the interesting places in Talkeetna. There are no hookups and no dump at this campground, so dry camping only. The $25 per night is for its location I guess. This seems to be a do anything you want campground, meaning make all the noise you like at any hour of the day or night. Little kids out playing at midnight, generators and loud music after 10:30 PM. While I hate to see a lot of rules, this place could use a few with some enforcement. I was in Talkeetna 15 years ago to climb Denali and the tourist crowds have increased tremendously since then, but the town remains one of my favorite places and my wife said it is a interesting place.

There are no hookups, but it is affordable and a walkable distance to Talkeetna's charming downtown and bustling airport. It's mostly a large dirt lot with some dispersed sites in the trees for those who looking for more privacy, but we opted to unhitch next to the river for fishing and better solar gain. Prepare for a cacophony of airplane noise as you're directly under the flight path of all the flight seeing tours taking off for Mt. McKinley. However, airplane noise is just part of the Talkeetna experience. Also, you'll need AT&T for any reliable cell/data service.
