This was the best military facility we have ever been to! We did not have reservations but were fortunate to get a site during the last weekend of Seward's salmon derby. We were assisted in getting tickets for an unforgettable Kenai Fords cruise and a visit to the Alaska Sealife Center. Their club had a nice bar as well as good food. While I do not fish, their fish processing house was well setup and heavily used by many successful fishermen to process their catch while were there. They have vacuum sealers as well as 30 degree below freezing storage for your catch. The staff was pleasant, informative and efficient! We are looking forward to staying again, but I recommend reservations, we were lucky to get a site.
W.Z. left this review using the Directory software: - Hi.. We booked their one and only Log Cabin almost a year in advance and really had no clue about the resort other than what we read on the Internet. The employees were friendly and attentive.. beyond the 'call of duty'. The gift shop is loaded with the normal tourist things and they have a huge selection of quality clothing.. so don't over pack as you can buy it there and if you cannot, there are wonderful stores in Seward that will have what you want. The log cabin was spacious and clean with private parking for our rental car. There was a gas grill on the porch which we used to grill fish a couple nights. There is no (full service) restaurant at the resort, but a minimal breakfast selection and FREE coffee is available. There is a bar/club that opens in the evening and serves sandwiches, fries, and drinks.. Very informal and friendly. Many places in the area to eat and I recommend looking at the lists and reviews on the resort web site. Our 'hands down' favorite was the "Train Wreck"... You will not leave hungry. We booked our tours and fishing prior to arrival... No problems with anything and they are run (with a couple exceptions) with groups that work directly with the resort. Fishing charter was amazing.. caught our limit of Halibut and they have an amazing fish cleaning/packaging/freezing facility within the resort. They will ship the fish for you or package and you take with you.. as we did. After our 20 hr return trip to Florida, the fish was still frozen solid. There was much more, but cannot document everything. Yes, there was an Air Force Resort right next door that has closed! Does not reflect on the Army resort. ALSO... the Seward campground, as we observed, is probably not a RV Resort , so don't expect one. It is clean and safe and is better than some state parks we have stayed in.. Lots of local people from Anchorage, Fairbanks, etc camping there. Sorry about any typo's... We thoroughly enjoyed the Alaskan experience.
Great place, if your headed to Seward stay here. We didn't stay at the Air Force campground and glad we didn't. There is no choice between the two. You can walk to the docks, downtown, and the local Safeway from here. They have free wifi, bar and grill, and a staff that goes out of their way to help you. The only issue, they do not have pull-throughs. The staff working the desk ask you if you want a pull-through, say no. Trust me on this one.
This is the best of 8 Famcamps that I have visited in the last year. It is located a couple miles north of downtown but enough off the main road to be quiet. The camp is relatively new, the laundry and restrooms are very new and impeccably clean. Individual sites are open and of average size. There is WiFi available by the office. There is a common are that serves burgers and drinks in the evening.
Visited this site in summer of 2006. We stayed for 5 days in a townhouse that slept 4 comfortably with 2 in a private loft and capable of 6 if you use the sofa bed. Fishing support is superb with a Fish House that includes ample cleaning area, vacuum sealers, and a huge freezer. Many of the staff will help you clean your fish. A bit pricy but the long summer days make for long days of sightseeing and sort of balance the cost.
This Army resort is an outstanding facility. Although the pads are gravel, and only water/electric are available, it is still worth the visit. An amazing fish house for full processing of your fish, including vacuum bagging and freezing! Beautiful bathrooms, although in a "gym" type layout (sorry ladies). Staff was very helpful and knew the area. Close to town, but not on the water like the city facility downtown. Go downtown. Really interesting and neat with a fantastic museum. Save $2/ticket when you buy thru the Army resort.
Worth every penny. Big tile showers. Lodge open all year. Nice souvenirs in lobby, lots less than in town. Discount tickets available at lobby desk for local attractions, like AK Sealife Center in Seward (don't miss that).
