We enjoyed browsing through this little park. Several shops. Interesting exhibit in a train car. The park as not crowded. Picnic tables available for food we bought at the stands. We missed the shuttle bus back and had to wait another hour.

No hookups but for $12 per night it is a good rest stop. They have potable water and there is a free dump station down the street at Soutdough's gas station.

Small historical town with tiny local artisans and few eateries and playground for the kids, old museum and ship with dioramas of old towns. Not what I was expecting.

It was more for younger families. Park is always open but rides and most attractions don't open up until 12:00pm. The museum's are interesting for older people and there are some extra fees for those.

We visited Pioneer Park for the Salmon Bake and a show, and discovered all the little shops, history and entertainment along the way. A great stop. The show was absolutely hilarious and the food was great.

After getting your fill at the Alaska Salmon Bake; it is a great way to walk it off. Since the Salmon Bake is also in the park, it is ideal. You will see a great cross section (locals and tourists). The park has quaint shops...More
