Highway Conditions
Alaska’s highways are modern and well maintained. Traveler resources and services are plentiful. Check www.AlaskaNavigator.org for information about road work taking place.
There are some unpaved roads
in Alaska that lead to smaller communities and remote locations. These include the Denali, Dalton, and Taylor (Top of the World) highways
as well as the McCarthy Road
into the Kennecott Mines Historic Landmark. Hatcher Pass Road is a narrow and scenic 49-mile-long rugged mountain pass leading to the Independence Gold historical site, but this road is not recommended for RV travel.
Many of Alaska’s roads are recognized by the National Scenic Byways program with two being designated as All-American Roads, the highest level of federal recognition available. The  rst is the Seward Highway, stretching from Anchorage to Seward in Southcentral Alaska. The second is the entire route of the Alaska Marine Highway System, the state ferry system and the only marine route in the National Scenic Byways program.
For more information about highway routes in Alaska see page 23.

Alaska RV parks and campgrounds welcome travelers
RV parks and campgrounds throughout Alaska o er exceptional scenic views and recreational opportunities, often in the heart of Alaska wilderness.
When you settle into a site at an RV park or campground, you’re getting much more than an overnight resting spot. Regardless of where you are
in Alaska, you’re not far from hiking,  shing, biking, kayaking or wilderness and glacier tours. Day excursions and guided tours let you discover the real Alaska while enjoying the comfort
of your RV at night. Check with your campground sta  to discover local highlights and recommended tours.
Private camping facilities o er many of the typical amenities that RVers expect. Some parks also have RV- wash facilities so you can spruce up before moving on.
State campgrounds and recreation sites usually o er basics such as picnic tables,  re pits, picnic shelters, outhouses or hand-pumped water. These spots are not always big-rig friendly so enter cautiously. Typically, these rustic campgrounds do not have dumping stations or facilities for  lling fresh water tanks. Be sure to treat or boil all water from pumps, lakes or streams to reduce the risk of waterborne bacteria.
