I planned my family vacation to Valdez and ended up choosing this camp site versus the others which were inside of town. Glad I choose this one since most of the camps in town were nothing more than large gravel parking lots. Glacier Campground offered so much more than the others unless your number one concern was being within walking distance to town. We were able to have a camp fire, watch a couple of bald eagles, and see a black bear all from the comfort of our camp in the outdoors next to the trees and mountains. Drive to downtown Valdez was just a 5 min drive from camp and Alison Point (fishing spot) was 10 min drive in the opposite direction. The facilities were very clean; staff was also very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this campsite to friends and family.
I am a E5 in the Army and decided to have my family reunion at the campground. We convoyed to the Valdez from Ft. Wainwright a 7 hour drive. We were very pleased to have the large group area with pavilion to support our family of 50 people. It was very nice stay by the waterfall. The staff was very supportive and knowledgeable. They went out of there way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Towards the end of the week the weather turned bad and they were able to put my grandmother and nieces in two rental trailers. They are were clean and large to fit many family members inside. We also visited allsion point nearby to go fishing for salmon and saw a grizzly with four cubs. Bottom line this is an excellent campground and beautiful. I recommend it to all my soldiers to get down there at least once this summer.
My husband and I spent 12 days touring Alaska in a motorhome. The Valdez Glacier RV park was recommended to us by a local Alaskan. We absolutely LOVED it! Where else can you spend the night with eagles nesting above your campsite and the sound of a waterfall in the distance? The young man from California helping run the park was so helpful. We appreciate him taking time to tell us sites to go see in Valdez along with glacier viewing tips. While driving around the campsite area we saw both brown and black bear! We spent 2 nights at the park and only wished we had more time. This is a well ran, clean park. If you want a chance to see bear, sleep with eagles soaring around you and hear the peaceful sound of a waterfall Valdez Glacier Campground is for you!! We will be back! Tammy Arkansas
