Highly rated northernmost KOA is the perfect base for a trip to the arctic circle

Great opportunity to own the Northernmost KOA campground and one of the largest and highest rated campgrounds in Alaska. The business has been awarded the President’s and Founder’s Award – KOA’s highest award. Guest satisfaction/review rating on KOA.com was 5 out of 5 stars in 2023. With a total of 150 sites on 29.5 acres, there is plenty of space for expansion at this beautiful location on a scenic river.

This is the preferred park for commercial caravans, which contributes to high occupancy for the larger 70-foot, 50 amp pull-through sites. The river setting is ideal for relaxing on log swings while watching the sunset along the river. Amenities include a couple of propane fire pits with lounge chairs by the pavilion, outdoor games such as giant Jenga, giant 4-in-a-row, cornhole and horseshoe pit. The latest addition is a playground and tetherball, so kids can burn some energy while the parents explore local attractions. Facilities have been brought up to above average condition for the area. There is only one main competitor, and they don’t offer online reservations and currently have 7% higher rates. This is an opportunity to earn a great net income in a very short season, as the main season is only about 3 months, leaving the rest of the year for travel or other business opportunities.
