Discover Wasilla, AK

Near the shores of Knik Arm in southern Alaska, the city of Wasilla is just an hour’s drive north of the city of Anchorage. Wasilla first began as a mining and fur-trapping village but as the southern city of Anchorage grew, so did Wasilla. Today, Wasilla is considered part of the Anchorage metropolitan area. In fact, until 2007, Wasilla even had the honor of serving as the restart location for the Iditarod Race whenever Anchorage didn’t receive enough snowfall. Though it may be a small town in America’s last frontier, choosing to rent an RV in Wasilla will open up another side of this great, wild state.

Driving your Wasilla RV rental around south-central Alaska should be no problem at all. However, if you don’t feel like driving, you can catch a ride on the Mat-Su Community Transit, also known as MASCOT. There are several fixed routes in the area, but you can also request a ride to a less populated region.

When you book an RV in Wasilla, you’ll have a great opportunity to explore the forests, the many lakes and coasts, and the thriving towns of the Last Frontier State.

The Great Outdoors

If you’re looking for a great half-day trip with your Wasilla motorhome rental, just about 20 miles northwest of town is Nancy Lake State Recreation Area. Nancy Lake is the ideal spot for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. In fact, just like hiking trails, Nancy Lake SRA even has canoe trails, the most popular Lynx Lake Canoe Trail stretching eight miles through a chain of lakes. To make sure everyone can enjoy this natural phenomenon, there are places just inside and outside the park where you can rent canoes.

Just about an hour’s drive south of Wasilla is the expansive Chugach State Park. With lush valleys, striking peaks, and powerful waterfalls, you can hike through the almost half a million acres and never be bored. You can hike through the picturesque birch forests and get to the powerful 200-foot Thunderbird Falls or instead set up camp along the Eklutna Lake and enjoy walking the miles and miles of shoreline. With more than 280 miles of hiking trails, some of which make up the famed Iditarod Trail, there is so much to explore.

If you want to head a little bit farther with your Wasilla RV rental by owner, traverse the great frontier about 200 miles to the north to Denali National Park and Preserve. If you’re traveling in the summer, you can take a leisurely wilderness tour from the comfort of a tour bus. If you want a little more adventure, you can explore the trails or even join a guided tour that may take you off of the beaten path. If you decide that there’s just too much to see in Denali, there are several campsites where you can hook up your Wasilla camper rental and enjoy the colorful wildflowers, dramatic mountain peaks, and crystal-clear glacial waters for as long as you want. If you’re a real adventure seeker, and only if you’re a trained mountaineer, you can climb Denali (also known as Mount McKinley), the highest peak in North America, and one of the famed Seven Summits.

RV Parks

After your days of mountain climbing and canoeing, you’re going to need a place to park your RV rental near Wasilla. Luckily, there are several places in and around town with wonderful amenities more than ready to be your home away from home.

Just to the west of town is Riverside Camper Park. On the Little Susitna River, believed to be one of the best salmon fishing rivers in Alaska, you might just find the true Alaskan camping experience. The park has full hookup sites, showers, laundry facilities, and even an on-site convenience store to make your trip a breeze. Be sure to bring your fishing rod and tackle; you may even catch a pink salmon.

Just to the east of town along the Matanuska River is the Matanuska River Park. Here you’ll find electrical hookups, access to bathrooms and showers, and a volleyball court and playground. You’ll be able to enjoy the picturesque Matanuska River and enjoy some of the trails already laid out in the area.

Explore the City

After you explore the natural wonders of this great state, be sure to explore some of the city attractions too.

If you’ve had an interest in anything with a motor, then the Museum of Alaska Transportation & Industry is the perfect place to spend a day. You can see automobiles from the 1930s, train cars from World War II, and planes from the 1950s plus so much more.

One of the most famous events to take place in Alaska, the Iditarod Race, is a multi-day-long dog sled race that journeys through some of America’s toughest terrain in some of the toughest conditions. For years, the race started in Anchorage. However, recently Anchorage has seen lower snowfall volumes, and so the race has also been started in Wasilla when necessary. The Iditarod Headquarters is still in Wasilla, and here you can learn about past winners, the year’s upcoming race, and even take a dog sled ride with some Iditarod racers.

After your adventurous days in the Alaskan wilderness, be sure to treat yourself to some locally caught salmon, fresh from the streams around Wasilla.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership.
