Anybody Planning an Alaska Adventure Summer 2019?

Wife and I went 94 days Tallahassee to Alaska. I have reviewed each RV park we used and have a MSWord document to share if anyone is interested. I uploaded it as an attached file, it's 72 KB.

Did our 3d visit this summer. For DW's 70'th birthday we took the extended family [18 total including 9 grandkids and parents]. Rented 4 MH's from ABC in anchorage. We flew from Oregon, Indy, and Nashville. I can't review any CG's because the only one we stayed in was in Denali. Boondocked the rest of the 17 nites. We found the most beautiful sites to overnite at and only had others in sight outside of Valdez. The experience from our first 2 solo trips with just the 2 of us was invaluable in planning out our itiniry.

Thank you very much for this information. It's really helpful. I'm currently charting out a trip from Texas to Alaska in 2019! Thanks again

Grumpy,
We hope do to the cruise method in a year or two. We saw lots of rental Class C's in all the campgrounds that we used north of the border. Seems like an advantageous way to do it.

Just love the look on DW's face after thousands of miles driving to Alaska, another 2 or 3 thousand miles maybe more] traveling around Alaska, and the revelation that it was time to head home AND SHE REALIZED THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF MILES TO DRIVE TO GET HOME.

Am a strong advocate of the fly and rent plan for vacationing in Alaska. Spend your time IN Alaska rather than getting there.

We drove and mostly stayed in territorial provincial and state parks. The drive is worth it if you have the time. We liked the Yukon and BC just as much as Alaska.
Hi Country is about the only decent place in Whitehorse but its a gravel lot with trees. Unimpressed.
If you go to Dawson use the ferry to the territorial CG.. The one in town is horrid a jam packed parking lot.

Tok RV wasn't full at all.. And another gravel lot. It does have wash facilities which are handy but at eighteen dollars a rip off. We went to Sourdough Campground which had a cheaper high pressure watch and a wonderfully forested campground.

Most of the RV parks we saw in Alaska were just gravel parking areas. Seward has a nice ocean front municipal campground and the KOA in Valdez out of town nice and quiet.

Gravel is a good alternative to mud.. Be aware that caravans of RV's use these places because they can take big rigs. Folks pay 11 grand to go caravaning in their own RV for sixty days.

We like to travel and liked Lethbridge for Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump and Drumheller for the Tyrrell Museum.. There is something to be seen all across Canada and the US.

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.
