"My husband and I used The MILEPOST® in June on our two week trip to Alaska. What a great resource! I'm a map reader on trips anyway, and The MILEPOST® made our whole experience easier and more informative than anything we've used on trips before. Thank you for a fantastic publication. It helped make our Alaskan Adventure the trip of a lifetime!"

Camping

Alaska and Canada have both government owned and privately owned campgrounds. With few exceptions, these campgrounds are located along the road system, and most roadside campgrounds accommodate both tents and RVs. Wilderness camping is also available in most state, federal and provincial parklands.
