Ship Creek RV Park, Anchorage, Alaska

This RV park is a must-stay if visiting the city of Anchorage. The park is located a short walk or bike ride from downtown Anchorage. Easily accessible, the town offers a National Park Service Visitor's Center, shops, restaurants, and an assortment of excursions to popular destinations such as Glacier Bay. The park itself is clean and small. Sites are very close together and arranged on a gravel loop. Site pads are gravel and level and some sites have picnic tables. Some back up to a chain link fence and trees, while others are closer to the train tracks. A clean and well-appointed laundry room and shower houses are available. The area itself is somewhat industrial and we spotted a homeless encampment within walking distance. There is a locked entry gate that closes in the evening and the premises are under surveillance. Anchorage itself has seen an increase is small crimes, namely bike thefts, to which we were unfortunately a
victim of. Getting around the town is easily done without a tow vehicle. A lovely walking/biking path meanders from just outside the RV park towards the ocean where extreme tides and ocean wildlife can be observed, then back into town past some lakes and through woods and parks. The path will even take you to Anchorage's Collegiate League baseball stadium. Here you can take in a game for just a few bucks and enjoy the close up view of collegiate MLB hopefuls. Additionally, there is a salmon viewing platform just within walking distance of the park. Overall, this is definitely the place to stay with its easy access to the city.
