Alaska RV parks and campgrounds welcome travelers

RV parks and campgrounds throughout Alaska offer exceptional scenic views and recreational opportunities, often in the heart of Alaska wilderness.

When you settle into a site at a RV park or campground, you’re getting much more than an overnight resting spot. Regardless of where you are in Alaska, you’re not far from hiking, fishing, biking, kayaking or wilderness and glacier tours. Day excursions and guided tours let you discover the real Alaska while enjoying the comfort of your RV at night. Check with your campground staff to learn of local highlights and recommended tours.

Private camping facilities offer many of the typical amenities that RVers expect. Some parks also have RV-wash facilities so you can clean up before moving on.

State campgrounds and recreation sites usually offer basics such as picnic tables, fire pits, picnic shelters, outhouses or hand-pumped water. These spots are not always big-rig friendly so enter cautiously. Typically, these rustic campgrounds do not have dumping stations or facilities for filling fresh water tanks. Be be sure to treat or boil all water from pumps, lakes or streams to reduce the risk of waterborne bacteria.

Visitors are reminded that roadside pull-offs and gravel pits may not be appropriate camping spots. Please respect signs regarding no overnight camping or parking.

Please remember that dumping your sewage or grey water holding tanks in gravel pits or anywhere except a dump station is illegal. RV dump stations are listed on page 24.
