This is a gem of a dry camping site in a spectacularly beautiful location, the Thompson Pass. When the sun comes up in the morning you are on the top of the world! This site is 25 miles north of Valdez and is a couple miles from the Worthington glacier. The campground is located next to a high alpine lake that offers grayling fishing. Three of the campsites have shelters over picnic tables. The campground has clean vault toilets. The hand pump had been removed from the well at the time of our visit.

This State campground is located about 10 miles east of Delta Junction. It has 17 quiet and pretty sites located on the Delta Clearwater river. Some of the sites are waterfront. There is a campground host on site and a boat launch available. The Delta Clearwater River provides access to the Tanana and Goodpaster Rivers. The campground has clean vault toilets and hand water pumps. Grayling are found in the river, and although I could see them, they wouldn't bite on anything offered.

This is the "end of the road" campground in Denali, at least as far as you can drive your own rig (30 miles into the park). It's a dry camping option, but the campground has very nice vault toilets so you won't fill up your blackwater tank needlessly. Water spigots are available, but not to fill your freshwater tank. The sites are level and far enough apart that the sites have some separation from the neighbors. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Generator use or vehicle idling to charge house batteries is limited to 8-10am and 4-8pm each day. You must stay here 3 days minimum (or at least pay for 3 days when you register). The only time you can drive back towards the entrance is when you leave the park. When you register, be sure to also request a "Tek Pass", it's a bus pass for the park shuttle system that will take you further into the park for sightseeing and animal viewing. You pick a destination to visit your first full day in the park. You will have a guaranteed seat on the bus that day, the Tek pass is also good each day thereafter for space available bus seats. When you leave the park, there are a group (4) free dump stations/fresh water fills at the Riley Creek Mercantile at the park road entrance. The mercantile also has a store, showers, and a laundromat.

This RV campground was a one night stop while traveling through Fairbanks and seeing the local sights. I called for a reservation from the downtown visitor's center. The gal answering the phone was knowledgable and efficient, we got the last site that would fit our 26' class C, RV. We had dinner at the local Salmon Bake (it's worth the stop), then returned about 8:30 pm to find our campsite. One side of the campground fronts on the Chena river. Wow, this place is all about packing them in for maximum generation of income. It was wall to wall RV's of all types. They advertise 189 sites and there were only a couple empty. They are efficient, but some things have been dropped. They advertise free WiFi, but don't plan on using it. Our site was only about 50 yards from one of the antennas (nailed up on a 2x4 bracket on a spruce tree), but I couldn't connect. When I checked in, another patron was complaining at the office that she couldn't login. "We are resetting the connection" was the reply. I think it was simply an issue of waaaay too many people trying to share the signal. However, I tried again very early the next morning and still couldn't connect. They do offer 5 booths at the office with ethernet cable connections, but that wasn't a winner either. There was one live cable that went to a router with 5 ethernet cables, one going to each booth. Evidently the router didn't work, 'cuz the main incoming ethernet cable was pulled up into one booth. That did work. The onsite laundromat had about 1/3 of the dryers labeled as "out of order". The washing machines were labeled suggesting using cold water only. I tried a load using the only detergent available from their vending machine (All, powdered), and the load finished with undissolved detergent specks all over the clothes. Not impressed. The bathrooms had a row of 3 or 4 shower stalls on one side, they were OK. This campground is in a convenient location for visiting Fairbanks, but they are in serious need of someone to keep all their systems working!
