When the Alaskan Frontier calls, answer with an RV rental in Anchorage. The largest city in Alaska, Anchorage is known as “The City of Lights and Flowers.” The summer season kicks off with city streets adorned in wildflowers and perennials, a dramatic contrast to the stark, dark winter months.
Anchorage’s resilient residents have developed this city into a hub for commerce and industry in a land of less-than-ideal conditions. Wilderness wraps around the city, with the nearly 500,000-acre Chugach State Park to its east and the waterways of Knik Arm and Turnagain Arm to its west and south, providing unparalleled beauty in all directions. Park the motorhome rental in Anchorage and jump on the People Mover bus system. Over a dozen bus routes offer access to the metropolitan area.
Temporarily transport yourself into the town’s past with visits to the historical sites and museums around the area. Pan for gold and tour mines at The Crow Creek Historic Mine, view vintage aircraft at the Anchorage Aviation Museum, and learn about native cultures, state history, and all other things Alaska at the Anchorage Museum.
Outdoor adventures are limitless in this vast terrain. On the eastern edge of the city, the Far North Bicentennial Park is home to several walking trails, lakes, and a portion of the Alaska Botanical Gardens. At 4,000 acres, the park is a great place to spend a day before diving into the depths of Alaska.
In Anchorage, guided tours of various types immerse tourists into Alaskan experiences like dog sledding, water-based wildlife observation, and fishing. Cruise the coast with a rental motorcycle, kayak the streams, or ride a horse along lush trails and rugged ridges.
Chugach State Park has more than 280 miles of trails, many of which lead to the 200-foot Thunderbird Falls. Hike on a portion of the historic Iditarod Trail. If you have mountaineering experience, you can traverse the Flattop Mountain Trail and head up the most climbed mountain in Alaska. To the south, the park connects to the Eastern Kenai Peninsula portion of the Chugach National Forest. Sockeye salmon fishing is popular on the Russian River, and hikers of all skill levels can find a path to follow here. Head to Portage Lake, and hop on a boat tour to check out Portage Glacier. During the ride to the massive slice of ice, you'll hear about its past and geological makeup. Gaze into the distance, and you might be able to catch glimpses of other glaciers. If you want to extend your explorations, park the Anchorage campervan rental at one of the Eastern Kenai RV campgrounds.
Take advantage of your rental rig's mobility and venture north to Denali National Park and Preserve. If you’re traveling in the summer, you can take a wilderness tour from the comfort of a tour bus. Get active and explore the trails or jump on a guided tour that may lead off the beaten path. There are several RV campsites near Denali National Park; once you're here, you can settle in to appreciate the surreal scenery of bright wildflowers, stark mountain peaks, and crystal glacial melt-waters.
Set up a home base at one of the RV parks in Anchorage. One popular place to consider is the Golden Nugget RV Park. Open year-round and located near downtown Anchorage, you can enjoy electrical hookups, WiFi, BBQ pits, and an on-site laundromat. Another option is Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park. Enjoy relaxing views of Ship Creek and access to amenities like full hookups, laundry facilities, and showers.
The Creekwood Inn RV Park is conveniently located just off Highway 1. On-site amenities include showers, WiFi, BBQ areas, and cable TV. There are several other RV campgrounds near Anchorage; pick the best location for your explorations.
The RV campsites in Chugach State Park offer an escape from the city, planting Anchorage campers amid some gorgeous Alaskan terrain. The settings are semi-rustic, though some modern comforts like restrooms, water, and picnic tables are offered.
Check out the city life in Anchorage while you're here. If you’re looking for something unique to the area, don't miss a whale-watching outing. Humpbacks, orcas, belugas, and bowhead whales aren't the only creatures to see. Coastal critters residing here include puffins, otters, and seals. These tours also offer the perfect vantage point to see many of the region's picturesque glaciers and fjords.
If you are intrigued by the animals of Alaska and want to get up close to a few, the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is the place to go. The center rehabilitates its residents with the intent to release them back into the vast Alaskan wilderness. You can see bison, bears, foxes, elk, wolves, and so much more. Take a guided, behind-the-scenes tour of the facility or meander through the different viewing platforms overlooking various animal enclosures.
About 45 minutes' drive northeast of Anchorage, in Palmer, there’s usually something going on at the Alaska State Fairgrounds. Home of the Alaska State Fair, held at the end of August every year, the fairgrounds also features various concerts, sporting events, shows, and celebrations year-round.
Anchorage hosts its share of events, too. Grab an RV rental for the Kenai Peninsula Fair and experience an authentic Alaskan festival. Secure a seat at the rodeo, watch the parade, and hit the carnival for some family-friendly entertainment. For a different kind of fair fun, plan your Anchorage RV camping trip around the Three Barons Renaissance Fair. Leave modern-day details behind during this fantastic festival. Tap into the feats, flavors, and fashions of centuries past, and round out the experience at the Shakespearean Tomato Show.
Book an RV in Anchorage, and you'll be on the path to adventure. Start with the city sights, sample some local seafood, and fuel up the rig for an epic escape into the Last Frontier.
