Whitehorse is a good place to stop, rest up and stock up. Reviews below commented on over flowing trash and the dump station in the center of RV sites. Ditto to both of those less than flattering comments, especially the dump station. Backed our 5er into a large enough site with room for pickup also. Had to get the trimmer out, though, to knock back enough branches to push the slides out. Closest RV park to town and the large number of restaurants, fuel stations and retail stores available. Would stay here again.
32ft SuperC w/2 slideouts cannot use one, as site too small. 15 amp, no sewer, WiFi free for 30 minutes thereafter pay, no broadcast Tv, no cable. Upgrade to pull-thru full-svc hookup not avail, as these reserved for Class A. 5th wheel rigs must park pulling vehicle in throughfare which makes egress in morning dicey.
Very busy and popular site, probably the best in Whitehorse, about 2 miles from the town, where there is lots to do, places to eat and grocery stores.
Very good and clean restrooms.
Many sites are cramped and can take some maneuvering to get in with space for slide outs. Be careful not to take a site opposite the office as you will be on top of the main road! Try to get a site at the back, which we did both times. The dump station is in the middle of the park, not very nice for those with sites beside the dump.
Willing staff and they appear to be run off their feet most of the time with a queue for service. Good store though. Excellent, if expensive, laundry.
There is only wifi around the office and it is slow, as on all Yukon sites. Good wifi at the Whitehorse Information Office.
Whitehorse is well worth a visit and one of the few places in the Yukon where you can really stock up. The Klondike Rib and Salmon restaurant is well worth a visit, but you may have to wait up to an hour to get a table in the evening.
There didn't seem to be much attention spent on garbage pickup. One occasion garbage blew around for at least 24 hrs and nothing was done about garbage left in fire pits in camping sites after people left. The power pedestal in site 112 shared the water tap as well. On another site behind us a loose water hose was spraying on the electrical outlet. The campers were complaining about a tingle on the ground near it. I went over a told them to tighten water hose. There comment was it was only 110. It can also kill and I feel it should be a safe distance from water connection , not sharing the same small post. Dust and speed was not addressed in campground area and we ate lots of dust when we were there early August.
We had no reservations and we paid the consequences, we got a back-in site that was way too close to the neighbors and water/electric only. My ratings reflect my personal experience with the site I had. Looked like all the sites are close together. There are many trees, so there is some shade. Whitehorse is a bigger town than most along the Alaskan highway, there is a Wal-mart and large grocery store. Gas is cheaper here. If I had to, I would stay here again, though I would make reservations for pull-thru with full hookups.
We were very disappointed in the site we were assigned. The dump station was directly across the street from us and as you can imagine it was quite smelly. We had reserved a site for 2 nights several months ago, We set up our unit and as we did so we could smell the dumping station and looking around it was directly across the street for our site about 15 feet away. In talking to the people at the desk it seemed to fall on deaf ears and the response was that the way it is. I cannot imagine who ever designed the camp ground putting the dumping station so close to the camp sites. If you go there and are given sites 62, 63, 64, 65, refuse them, they stink, you cannot spend any time outside.
This was a very nice park with a couple of clean trails to walk your dogs. Poop bags were available along with a can to dump them into. The park was clean and well-maintained. It had a small laundromat and the majority of the machines worked well. Bathrooms were clean and there was plenty of hot water. WiFi was good, not great, but got the job done. There is a fee to use it. The parking space entry was a little tight, but do-able even for a novice driver like me. The road in to the spaces was fairly level as well. The park is in a wooded setting, so you don't feel like you are parked in your neighbor's lap. Staff was great. They were very helpful and efficient. Nice gift shop as well.
Great place to stop when coming through Whitehorse, 5 minutes to town by car and lots to see and do, also save room for some great food at local restaurants.
The Staff at Hi Country are great and very helpful with suggestions of things to do around town.
The park is in a wooded setting well organized and maintained, also nice and quiet at night.
Will definetely stay here again!!
Very clean park. The office is well stocked with necessities. The staff is very helpful and knowledgable about the local area. There is an adequate area to walk our dog. The parking spaces are a little cramped, but not unreasonably so. The dump station was easily accessable from any direction, although the location is not the most ideal. It is located right beside the office. Which means that you have to pass by it when ever you have to go to the office. We will definitely stop there the next time we travel through Whitehorse.
