Transient RV Parking Guidelines

The Alaska Sailing Club (ASC) welcomes members to bring their RVs to the club. We have space for between three and four RVs, depending on the size of rigs members bring to the club. These spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and you may not hold spots for other members.

Before you bring your RV to the club, please note the following:

  • The maximum box length for transient RVs parked at the club is 27’’.
  • Your RV must have a fire extinguisher on hand.
  • The ASC provides power at no charge, but you need to bring an extension cord.
  • The ASC does not provide potable water, although we have a lakewater sink for dishes.
  • Your RVs must be movable on short notice and removed within 72 hours if requested by the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. (If not removed, the ASC will contract a towing service to remove the RV at your expense.)
  • The maximum standard stay for a transient RV at the ASC is four days. If you’d like to stay longer, you may contact the ASC Senior Vice Commodore, and we may be able to accommodate your request if it doesn’t overlap with an ASC event weekend.
  • The ASC accepts no liability for your RV or items contained therein.

If you arrive and all spaces are full, you can park in the small boat launch parking area immediately outside the club. You can’t park there overnight but can stay at the Big Lake North State Recreation Area, only 6.4 miles from the club.

When you arrive at the club, please do the following:

  1. Park close to the next RV, but allow enough space for them to leave if it’s motorized.
  2. Park as close to the bank on the right as possible to allow maximum room down the middle of the trailer row.
  3. If you’re using a tow vehicle, disconnect it from your RV and move it to the regular parking area once your RV is in place.

While you’re staying at the ASC with your RV, please observe the following rules:

  • Do not start any ground fires. Ground fires are only allowed in the established fire pit by the waterfront.
  • You must keep the area around your RV clean and neat; no trash is allowed.
  • You may not store gasoline, kerosene, or diesel fuel in portable containers. (Propane in fit-for-purpose canisters is acceptable.)
  • You must report any fuel release to the ASC board immediately. Please use the ASC contact form and select “Feedback or suggestion” in response to the “How can we help you?” question.
  • You may not discharge firearms. In addition, the ASC prohibits using explosives, including fireworks, along the trailer row.
  • You may not dump gray water anywhere on ASC grounds.
  • Securely lock your RV when it is not in use.
  • Put away sliders and awnings after each use.

When you leave the ASC, please make sure that the area around your RV is clean and tidy.
