RV camping in Alaska

Most people try to leave the workplace behind when they go on vacation. But Bill Rogers, owner of Wild Bill's RV Alaska, takes his with him.

Bird Creek

The Bird Creek Campground is located near the Seward Highway, but there can be times when there is no traffic noise and campers can imagine themselves in the wilderness.

Located just 20 miles from Anchorage, this long-established campground offers recreation for all.

Inside Passage camping

Campgrounds, cabins and shelters are maintained by the Forest Service and Alaska State Parks department throughout Southeast Alaska.

Southeast Alaska -- The Inside Passage

Arctic welcomes campers

Northern Alaska has two national parks, all or part of five national wildlife refuges, a national preserve and a national monument. In all of those, camping is virtually unrestricted.

Tents and RVs are welcome

Camping in Alaska puts vacationers right in the middle of gorgeous scenery, where the fishing is good and where activities abound.

Tent and RV/motorhome campgrounds are found all along Alaska's highway system of paved and gravel roads.

Look for parkland campgrounds near the national and state parks and in many places in the Tongass and Chugach national forests.

Campgrounds are even near downtown of Anchorage and Fairbanks, and a short walk from the downtowns in Seward, Valdez and Homer, Skagway, Haines, Talkeetna, Soldotna and Kenai.

Many campgrounds have amenities such as stores and showers. Often, the campgrounds are also RV-friendly, with electrical and water hookups and sanitary dumps.

Top-notch hiking, rafting, kayaking, fishing, glaciers and historical and cultural exhibits may be nearby. Of course, you should expect to see wildlife anywhere in the state.

And for people who come to Alaska to see the wild land, there's plenty of that, too. In many places, all you have to do is wander a little way off the road to be on the Last Frontier.
