We stayed at both, and found River View RV Park much more suitable for us.It can accommodate rigs of all sizes, has well maintained shower, restroom and laundy facilities, and has two modem hookups in the laundry area.The sites offer all ameneties, including some with both cable and phone hookups -- the only ones we've seen in Alaska.Big rigs were definitely in mind when this park was designed.
The sites are in an area of trees and shrubs which has been left in a natural state -- so much so that moose still wander through on occasion.
A very modest amount of highway noise is noticed at night. (06/02)Bear Paw RV Park is one of several commercial parks in the port town of Valdez.
It actually is two parks, separated by a few blocks.
Although the park is in an unusually pristine setting for an RV park within the city limits of a major metropolitan area, it is very close to the type of major shopping opportunities most RVers will need when traveling in Alaska.
After spending time in a variety of much more rustic settings typcial of Alakan travels, this park will seem especially attractive.
