Your trip to Alaska is a lifetime experience. Traveling in a RV gives you the flexibility of making the trip totally your own, stay longer – leave early – your choice. Some things can be planned in advance others need no more than a day notice.
Having traveled the Alaskan-Canadian Hwy several times, I can offer some suggestions, they are only suggestions. This is your trip.
Purchase the Milepost. The Milepost is a guide book covering Alaska, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, and British Columbia. It was first published in 1949 as a guide about traveling along the Alaska Highway. It has since expanded to cover all major highways in the northwest corner of North America, including the Alaska Marine Highway. It is updated annually.
The Alaskan-Canadian Highway, or Alcan as it often called begins at Dawson Creek, British Columbia and ends in Fairbanks, Alaska (1,488 miles).
The following are places we have stayed at. It is not a complete list of parks and should not be considered a slight to any park not listed. We simply have not stayed there yet.
Whitecourt: Lion’s Club RV Park
Valleyview: Sherk’s RV Park
Charlie Lake: Ross H. Maclean Rotary RV Park
Fort Nelson: Triple “G” Hideaway RV, Northern Rockies Lodge
Whitehorse: Caribou RV Park
Tok Alaska: Tok RV Village
Tetsa River Lodge: Mile 375 Alaska Hwy. Park your rig on road and walk in. Family owned for several generations, they make homemade bread and soups. The cinnamon buns are the best. After enjoying this treat your fingers and face will be very sticky.
Liard Hot Springs: Mile 496 Alaska Hwy. A natural hot spring with stone bottom. The provincial park does not offer services but is very pretty. We usually just drop in for the day, park across from the entrance, walk in with day pass and continue our journey. Watch for bison on road.
