I was leery about staying here because there were not many reviews. The prices in town were outrageous. We booked a deluxe cabin with 2 full beds. We were pleasantly surprised. The cabin was nice and clean. The bathroom is awesome with a jetted tub....More

Stayed here in a cabin on Labor Day weekend. Pretty quiet considering so many people were there. Price wasn’t bad either. Perfect spot between Valdez and Allison Point. The weather can be rainy and chilly that time of year so staying in a cabin is...More

The lady at the front desk and rest of staff were nice; yes, we arrived very early on the Labor Day weekend without reservations. Not sure how many sites were actually reserved, we felt very, very, very crowded- everyone was on top of each other-...More

If you want to be parked in a parking lot lined up like sardines with other RVs this is not the place for you, but the one's in town would suit you. If you are looking for good size lots, trees, snow covered mountain views...More

The wild beauty of America's Last Frontier awaits at the Valdez KOA. Eighteen acres of wilderness surround the campground, where you can easily access hiking and ATV trails. Beyond, glacier-caked peaks dominate the More view in all directions. A pristine stream flows right through the campground, churning with salmon in season. Bald eagles soar by, and the occasional bear wanders through. With a camp store, Wi-Fi and other on-site services, you can settle right in and get ready to explore this magnificent region. Charter a local guide to fish world-class waters for salmon and halibut. Board a wildlife excursion boat to scan the Sound for humpback whales, fuzzy sea otters, comical-looking puffins and other birds not often seen in the Lower 48. Come face-to-face with one of the largest tidewater glaciers in North America, an ice sheet as high as a football field and another big Alaska memory. Open May 1 (weather permitting). Max pull thru: 75 feet. Your hosts: Tim & LaVerne Eickman. Less
