Just wondering if anyone has put together a road log of mile post camping both hookup and boondocking. That would really be handy for planning mileage per day and services(overnight ) when wanted. Disription would also be great IE; "nice spot for a couple days enough room for several big rigs".

Yes I have the milepost book and several others plus links to camp sites. But if someone has put together a mile by milepost just campground list it would save a lot of work. Look 200 miles ahead and have a few places in mind for CG and boondocking spots.

What you are asking for is really just someone's personal choice, however what works for one person may not work for another.

If you don't have the Church's book, you could try that one too.

2011 Alska Trip

We did it in '07. Do not take a hand gun through Canada... do the top of the world highway, and come out the cassiar hwy. By all means get the book by Mike and Terry Church's book, here is their web site Rolling Homes Press

Some of the road are rough... just go slow... what's the hurry! Camp in Denali, 35 miles in, at the camp ground.

Have a wonderful time.

Jerry

I lived there for three years and am back for vacation this June. I would recommend going to Seward for the whale cruise, they are better than homer. Definitely recommend hitting Boarders for a northern lights book (entertainment book) or maybe you can order it online before going they might have coupons for princess. they usually have B1G1F for whale cruises. That savings alone will pay for the book. I would recommend making reservations because they do fill up. As for parking the mh there are several pay lots that aren't parking garages. There is a lot across the street from the rail depot but I can't remember if there is room for a mh. I'm sure you will find something as most places have parking for them since they are extremely common in AK. Hope that helps some

There are several nice RV parks in Anchorage. For no more than a few days, you can leave your coach in a safe,convenient park with hookups to keep your frig and stuff going. When you return, everything is set up and you are free to rest up from your side trip. We did this and just took a cab to the airport, or in your case, to the train station. We actually stayed a week so that we could spend a couple of extra days to explore the town. Well worth it. You can go online and reserve a spot, which I would recommend. Summers get really busy.
