Easily Book Campgrounds and RV Parks in Anchorage, AK

About Anchorage

Unlike most metro areas, Anchorage RV parks and campgrounds do exist within the city, and there are actually several close to downtown. Perhaps this isn’t exactly surprising, since Alaska is pretty much the ultimate RV adventure. Many travelers plan for months or years in advance in anticipation of their trek north.

While passing through Anchorage, be sure to check out the Alaska Native Heritage Center and the Anchorage Museum to brush up on the local native culture and history. The Alaska Zoo, Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum, and H2Oasis Indoor Waterpark, which has slides and a wave pool, are other destinations you should have on your “weekend in Anchorage” bucket list.

Anchorage also has lots of local and state parks and designations to explore. Ship Creek runs through town after descending from the hills to the east, providing numerous areas for recreation. The Delaney Park Strip used to be a landing strip for airplanes. It has been converted into an 11-block park that runs through the city. The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, which extends around the northern coastal edge of the city for 11 miles, runs through Kincaid Park and into downtown. Just south of downtown are popular spots like Portage Glacier, Chugach State Park, and the Alyeska Resort.

Keep on heading south of Anchorage and you’ll find yourself at Seward, a vibrant, folksy town with a friendly and welcoming attitude. Seward is one of the larger regions within reasonably close proximity to Kenai Fjords National Park and Chugach National Forest. For folks headed the other direction, the towns of Talkeetna and Cantwell have several RV parks and resorts nearby. They also provide easy access to Denali National and State Parks.

No matter where you’re headed in Alaska, Anchorage RV parks and campgrounds can serve as a great base of operations for day trips and adventures.
