We used the Church's book for finding campgrounds. However, their idea of a great campground and ours are two different things. Full hook up sites are almost always crammed with your slides an inch or two from your neighbor. And everything is gravel. The only paved site we stayed at was at a USFS campground in the Portage area. Make sure you use the lat/long coordinates in the Church's book because most campgrounds up that was do not have traditional addresses.

The Church's book includes all types of camping - pull-overs, boondocking, public parks and RV sites with full hookups. It's all inclusive.

They don't have any control on the layout of full hookup sites. That's the Alaska norm and we never used them. We used public parks and boondocking spots, including the Williwaw forest service campground in Portage, as mentioned. It's a beauty.

For an excellent campground book of Canada and Alaska, go online and order Mike and Terri Church's book 'Alaskan Camping'.

Also, don't forget to order the TourSaver 2/1 coupon book. One glacier cruise will pay for the book.
What is the toursaver and where do I get it?!

Thanks for all the good info!

As stated earlier in this thread we are leaving for our third trip to Alaska in April. I still have the 2010 version of the Milepost with many notes made on several pages. Not planning to buy a new one as not much changes from year to year. If you don't own one then I would recommend buying the most recent version. The new ones come out in March/April time frame.

Haven't had the need for any other book, magazine or reference material.

I use the Milepost for the maps, turnouts, and distances. The ads are worthless along with fuel stops and places to stay. Many of those have closed up even back in 2010 when I had the latest version. And many more had closed up in 2012 when were back for the second time.

Regarding the Tour Saver book, here is where you can order one.
