"AlaskaPilot" were very welcoming and friendly, we had an excellent stay at their place. This is an excellent location to visit Mesa Verde NP and the surrounding. We look forward to visit them in Alaska, if our little boy allow it in a near future ;-). We strongly recommend these host. Thanks for everything!
We keep saying "it can't get any better " each time we leave a new boondocks site. But it does, Alaska pilot place is beautiful, great spot with terrific views, peaceful and quiet. Close to a lot of historical native American Indian sites. Host was very accommodating and has inspired us to go to Alaska and stop in to see him there. Will definitely make this spot a favorite on our list of many.
We had the best time here, thank you so much for landing us the kayaks to paddle around in. It was a beautiful day with view of Denali and had a great time at the Islander. Looking forward to your visit to New Zealand one day so we can return the favour.
We were looking for a place to finish up some work before heading back to the lower 48 but our favorite location was flooded.
We felt super fortunate to have happened upon this listing. There were two other campers the first night of our stay and then we had the place to ourselves for four nights.
The pavilion came in really handy for grilling as Alaska seemed it fit to see us off with 5 straight days of rain and the shore power was very much needed as solar wasn’t going to get the job done 😅. The listing mentions 30a service but we were pleasantly surprised to find both 30 and 50 amp!
The host is super accommodating and checked us in and out. He even texted a couple times to make sure we didn’t need anything and offered to let us borrow his kayaks! Very communicative but not intrusive in the least.
This was our first stay with a BW host and it couldn’t have been better.
We will definitely be back next summer!
Enjoyed a quiet evening at the communities gated lakefront lot. There was a nice pavilion and Boatdock and barbecue grills where we were able to cook our dinner. There was even electricity for a five dollar fee per night. It was such a treat to have electricity after almost a month with no electric. The hosts are great people although we did not get a chance to visit much with them as we left the next day to head to Denali. Both are Verizon and AT&T worked there. Both our Verizon and AT&T worked there.
We met Allan shortly after arriving in Big Lake, Alaska He guided us to their home and then to the RV site. Wow a 30 amp. Service included, they ask for $5 donation for electric and the site is free, couldn’t ask for more. Our host’s we’re leaving to go fishing for a few days, but Allan said they would be back on Thursday. Hope to see them tomorrow and get suggestions for day trips around Denali NP. We changed our time to stay with them and they were nice to accommodate us.
Allan is a delightful host, charming and personable, and did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable.
The site has picnic tables, power (for an inexpensive $5), a Porta potty, and fire ring (wood included!).
If you have boating equipment, you can use the launch and take a cruise around the lake.
Finding the spot is a little tricky, so it's important to stay in touch with the host.
