This is basically a parking lot with water and electricity. The man who runs the place is very nice and informative, he gives you a discount for gas and 2 one hour passes for internet. It is in the middle of town close to grocery store and sign forest. Great an overnight stay. Very clean restroom and hot showers.

We camped at the Downtown RV Park one night during he third week of May 2019. We arrived in the late afternoon without reservations with a half dozed other campers already there. The on-site owner/manager didn't seem too interested in providing anything close to reasonable "customer service". I can't imagine what he will be like during the peak of the summer camping season. The Downtown RV park is a large gravel parking lot. When full, it doesn't appear that you will have any privacy or much... Read More

We camped at the Downtown RV Park one night during he third week of May 2019. We arrived in the late afternoon without reservations with a half dozed other campers already there. The on-site owner/manager didn't seem too interested in providing anything close to reasonable "customer service". I can't imagine what he will be like during the peak of the summer camping season. The Downtown RV park is a large gravel parking lot. When full, it doesn't appear that you will have any privacy or much room between campers in this RV park. At our campsite we had 30 amp electric, water and sewer for $39 (USD). The owner would not honor my Good Sam discount. The public restroom and showroom was available and just "ok". The RV park is located very close to a grocery store and it's walking distance close to the Sign Post Forest. If the weather is nice, the campground is located next to a lake that would offer nice hiking and views. Overnight the RV park was quiet making this a good place to sleep for the night, otherwise disappointing in terms of esthetics and for the management of the park. Watson Lake attracts campers because of its location and lack of competition for miles around, not because of the high quality campgrounds there. This is the third RV Park we've stayed in in the Watson Lake area in the past 2 years. I need to research some boon docking locations in the area for the next trip through here.

Yes, this is a large gravel parking lot with hookups. Sites are long, no problem parking your RV and pickup. Slides went out and no interference with our neighbor's rig. You are in remote Canada, so things will naturally cost more. Think about your fuel costs to get there and maybe you'll understand the prices that Watson Lake residents pay for their living expenses, and that translates to what you have to pay for an overnight stay. Their food and fuel costs trickle down to your nightly fee.... Read More

Read a book or talk to your neighbor. Yeah, I'm old school. Restaurant across the street, Kathy's Kitchen, good for dinner. Host has the low down on fuel costs in the direction you are traveling, north or south. Bottom line, this RV park is convenient to amenities in Watson Lake, and is a good stopover en route to/from Alaska. Realize what you're getting and why the price might seem a little high to you, then you'll be happy for a night or two.

Like other reviews, a large gravel lot and close to neighbor. With slides out,maybe 2-1/2 ft. A bit pricey for full hookups at 52.50 cad. Starting to wonder about the criteria to be a GS RV park.

Dirty campground and restrooms. Unfriendly and aggressive host. Sadly I had to give 1 star to make a rating. Wonder why this is a good sam's park.

When we drove in we realized it was just a gravel parking lot. Talked with the owner who was very grumpy and inhospitable. Park was expensive $47. Advertise free WiFii - you get 1 hour free. We were assigned a spot that you could reach out and touch your neighbour. It was so bad we left. Drive a little further and stay down the road.

This is pretty much a gravel parking lot with RV Hook ups. Sites were extremely tight and close together. No issue with power or water. Staff was friendly and you are right in Watson Lake close to everything that it has to offer. I thought it was a bit expensive at $47.50 for a night ( full hookups).

Extremely tight parking. If we hooked up to water we could not get out of our door. No room to let out awning. They advertise free wifi but forget to tell you that you can only access it on the porch of the office and then only for 1/2 hr. Not impressed!

Great place to stop as you enter The Yukon, full Hook Ups. There's lots to do and see in and around Watson Lake. Very helpful and friendly owner. Will definitely stay here again after a long drive to The Yukon, good place to refresh!!
