Book early. Rates are based on current paygrade for active/reserve or at retirement. My wife and I stayed in one of the motel rooms for 3 nights in August 2017. Cabins were gone 10 months in advance, so we had to get one of the motel rooms. Room was clean. Advertised in-room WIFI could not be accessed which is not good if your phone service does not work in Seward area. Had to go to the common recreation area near the main facility to to get internet service. Seward is a wonderful area to visit/explore. Plenty of hiking/fishing/site-seeing/unique restaurants and shops. Overall - we would stay there again and highly recommend the Seward Resort as an affordable stay.
Stopped by for the day. REAL NICE place! They seem to take very good care of the location and facilities. Seward is a pretty town, mainly with hiking, fishing, and boating being the main activities. There are also glacier boat tours. The military resort has nice cabins, a motel, tent area, and an RV area. The "Fish Station" was pretty neat, where they provide everything you need to clean, pack, and prepare your fish for shipping. For this area, the cabin and RV site prices are also reasonable. We stayed a little out of town dry-camping in a free area along the Resurrection River. But if I wanted electricity, this would be the RV park to go to. We did use the dump and fill up with water before leaving town. They charged us $1 on the honor system - there's a box to put your money into.
Stayed there mid-June four days. Campsites and facility are very nice. Great laundry room, hot showers, and excellent maintenance staff. I was NOT impressed with the office staff as I made reservations via my credit card, but when trying to pay cash when I arrived they would not take it, saying I needed pay when I left. When I went back to pay on departure they had already billed my credit card without my permission.
Nicely located with clean restrooms and laundry rooms. Amenities are good but no full time eating facilities on campus. However, there are limited breakfast items in the morning and a bar/grill facility opens in the late afternoon with the usual fast food menu. Bought tickets and booked the 7.5 hours Kenai Fjords Tour with the Resort. It was awesome! Saw eagles, dolphins, whales broaching and glaciers up close and personal. The ship's captain turned off the engines and asked for silence in order to hear the glaciers squeak, groan, pop and go boom! Witnessed ice pieces calving and falling into the sea. The Resort RV sites need a little grading as they are on a hill and uneven. Most vehicles had to use leveling devices to settle their rigs. Only electric and water at each site. There is a dump station that is easily accessible. Only negative was the staff at check in. Young ladies who seemed to be doing you a favor instead of customer service. I haven't seen so much eye rolling since I told my teenagers Country and Western music is far superior to today's popular music. I humbly suggest training in customer relations for these young ladies.
Located in a beautiful setting just north of downtown Seward; however, with no sewer hookups I rated Amenities/Facilities a 3. As stated, hookups are together so every other site is pull-in/back-in so your hookups are on the correct side. I was in the far line of sites from the office and Wi-Fi worked great in my RV. Freedom Fighters Lounge to the rear of the Main Deck opens for food at 17:00 with a limited menu. All staff were friendly and helpful. You are given a "hotel type" door card to access the laundry and showers. Therefore, you have to check out and your credit card is charged at check out. Prior to arriving I was able to book a 4 1/2 hour Resurrection Bay tour with about a 40% savings. A great tour by the way. Exit Glacier is a short drive (less than 10 miles) away. There is a Safeway grocery store and car wash a short distance from the resort heading south into Seward. The cabins look very nice and there is both bus and train service from Anchorage if someone wanted to stay in the cabins. Overall a good experience.
We stayed here for a week in a 29' Class C motorhome. The facility is great with the exception of the campground layout which is not great. For starters, there are no sewer hookups which is unfortunate for so nice a place. The sites are on a slight incline and are not graded totally level. They are somewhat small and the water and electric hookups are located together for two sites, so one of them is on the wrong side. Many of the motor homes, pull in head first so as to put the utility lines on the correct side. Also too bad it couldn't have been located on the water. Other than this issue, the resort is excellent, first class restrooms, laundry, fish cleaning area and front office. We found the staff attentive and helpful in giving advice and booking tours (at a decent discount). There is a grill and bar with an outside patio with good, but limited offerings. Far superior to the USAF campground located next door, albeit at twice the price.
This should be a five-star facility, but isn't. Many of the sites are too small for large RVs and not level. There are a few picnic tables but not at all sites. When we were there, the front desk was manned by young girls more interested in talking to each other than taking care of visitors. We asked if we could delay checkout for just one hour but were told we would have to pay for another full day even though the park was less than half full. The facilities are all top-notch with a beautiful hall with large TV, games, and comfortable furniture. Restrooms and laundry are large and spotlessly cleaned with plenty of hot water. Although we did not take advantage of their fishing trips, we heard only great fish stories from other campers.
Ok I didn't stay here but did stop by to buy tickets and check it out. Closely spaced, back-to-back sites are in what looks like a very well-maintained parking-lot environment. If the facilities and hook-ups are more useful to you than the views from the city campground this would be the place to go. Very close to groceries and tourist info..you could walk it into town but the city campground is more centrally located.
