What are some of the best campgrounds in Alaska? 

Everyone knows that Alaska is gorgeous, and the best way to experience it is by pitching your tent in the middle of it. Some of Alaska’s best campgrounds include Chena Lakes Campground in Fairbanks, Moon Lake in Tok, and Quartz Creek Campground in Cooper Landing. If you’re searching for some magnificent ocean views, camp at Clam Gulch State Recreation Area in Soldotna. This blissful oasis offers stunning sunset views. 

Are you allowed to camp in state parks?

There are several Alaska State Parks that allow overnight camping. Among them are Thumb Cove State Marine Park in Seward, Chugach State Park in Anchorage, and Denali State Park in Trapper Creek. No matter what part of the state you live in, you’ll be able to enjoy gorgeous state park camping that’s full of dazzling views. 

What are some of the things I need to take on a camping trip?

When camping in Alaska, it’s important to bring warm layers of clothing. Evenings often get cold, so it’s important to stay warm while sleeping under the stars. Additionally, it is wise to bring a rain-resistant jacket or plastic poncho. Alaska often gets precipitation, so it’s important to stay dry. Alaskan campers will not want to forget their camera. These picturesque views deserve to be cherished.
