I want to add my positive reviews of the work Becky and Jim were doing and the on going work to improve the sites......it was amazing the work Jim was doing with just himself.....not to be outdone, Becky was helping folk get into sites and attend to the social events the campground had to offer. Thank you Jim and Becky for your tireless work....
Hi, Jim & Becky Fuller have returned as Camp Hosts for 2013. We now have water in the RV Park. We have 15 sites available with electric & water (1 with 20 amp, 5 with 30 amp and 9 with 20/30/50 amp). In addition, there are 5 with water only. All sites in Moose Loop are $20 per night or $110 per week. Maximum stay is one month (extension may be approved pending availability). Showers & Laundry are available in the ODR office building located on the Chena River with a boat launch. Showers are 50 cents for 16 minutes. Laundry is $3.25 per washer load and $2.00 for dryer load. Moose Loop is located in Glass Park and just around the bend from the office. No Wifi here in Glass Park however free Wifi is available at the Post Library, Exchange, LFCAC, Nugget Lanes and the Warrior Zone. The Chena Cove Campground has not been completed and no upgrades have been made to Moose Loop. We also have 5 dry sites in the old Denali Loop directly across from the ODR office at $12 per night. Due to the dryness of Alaska and tundra, we cannot permit campfires in the RV park. Tenting is also available in the large recreation area at $12 per night. Office is closed Tues & Wed. Office hours are Mon, Thurs, Fri: 1000-1800; Sat: 1000-1500; Sun: 1200-1800. Discount Tickets are available for Riverboat Discovery, some activities at Denali Park & Gold Dredge No. 8. Safe travels and we'd love to have you come to stay with us.

Impossible to get a site through Outdoor Rec but new Camp Hosts will work with you. Park quite rough around the edges. Some wooded sites are nice and private. Some sites are right on road and some are side-by-side. Utilities being slowly restored. Yes, showers and laundry are expensive and bathrooms get very messy. Many on-base facilities. Easy access to all of Fairbanks. It must be judged by Alaska and not Lower 48 standards. And SO much better than Eielson.

Jim & Becky Fuller should be commended for all their work to make this RV park what it is today. They deserve "Camp Hosts of the Year" award. The only complaint I have is the laundry $3.50 to wash and $2.00 to dry. That's a bit much. It is an easy walk to the Fairbanks Visitors Center. The commissary and exchange are well stocked. For rainy days, the Fitness Center and pool are nice. The round trip drive to the Arctic Circle can be done in one day. If I would every return to Alaska, I would stay here again.

This an update from our May posting. We have the road and site areas widened and groomed. All sites are large enough for the biggest rigs. We are working to save Glass Park. We have a variety of W/E sites, some have only 30 amp but others have 30/50. The one site I mentioned earlier had a tree fall on it which makes it a dry site as it has not been repaired. There are remnants of the previous Denali Loop (5 sites) nearer to the recreation office which we also can use as dry sites (much better atmosphere than Walmart). The components were completely stripped out but are quite usable. The laundry and restrooms are at the rec office as you enter the park. Moose Loop is the only one currently with W/E (now 15)sites. Park remains open until sometime in September depending on the weather. The office is open 11-7 Thurs thru Mon. One of the great things about Glass Park is that you have the "way out of town" atmosphere while being right at the front gate of Ft Wainwright. Everything is so close. Come visit and tell all your friends we are open this year. We have been full including the dry sites at times so don't hesitate to call for a reservation. We've been blessed this year to have friends come and stay while on their Alaskan trips who we'd met while we were camp hosts in GA. There are separate fees for water only site and for dry sites. When approaching the gate, stay in the left lane as entrance to the park is just inside the gate to the left. Hope this has helped any military who have had questions regarding the park for the 2011 season as it is not in the Military CG book at this time.
This campground was great for the money. The camp hosts were wonderful and the camp spot itself was great with lots of wonderful trees and privacy. The only thing I would have loved was free wi-fi access, but everything else was great.
May 21, 2011 for the summer as Camp Hosts
We have volunteered as Camp Hosts this year to open it up a little and widen the sites. There are 8 sites with W/E. There is one loop available after the housing construction took out two loops a few years back. Of the remaining 12 sites, 11 have water at this time. One W/E pole was removed. There are 4 electrical boxes that appear to have been vandalized thereby affecting the other sites. We are in a wonderful location so very close to the main gate and thereby close to anything in Fairbanks and the juncture of Airport Way, Richardson Hwy and Steese Hwy. The commissary is open 10 AM - 7 PM or 1000-1900 hrs daily, except for holidays. Wooded environment. We enjoy the lower cost compared to the available campgrounds in the area. Looking forward to a good summer here in the Golden Heart of Alaska.
This FamCamp is conveniently located about 3 miles South of Fairbanks. All sites are well kept and well separated from each other. There is a dump station adjacent to the Rec. Center as well as a potable water hookup. This is a great place to use while visiting the Fairbanks area.
Glass Park is NOT closed. It was under new construction last year, but it was not closed to make way for new housing. It's open and more beautiful and convenient than ever!
This was the most disappointing military rv park I have been in view of what they charge. One no sewer hooks ups and if you want a shower get lots of quarters cause your going to pay for it and dirty the shower/bathrooms are cleaned daily and made dirty immediately by gate guards and passerbys. They bragged about 50 amp service but they had 3 or 4 rv spots hooked up to a 100 amp breaker so the whole 3 weeks we were there we lost power two or 3 times a day. The grass and weeds were really high and the mosquitos rule was so happy to arrive at Fort Richardson which was a so much better service and personnel.
