      Frank and EJ Putnam Last time we were up there was 2014 so this may be out of date. Along the Chena River between Fairbanks and Chena Hot Springs there are several spots, Walmart in Fairbanks, in Anchorage at Cabella's and the abandoned Walmart in Kenai. I'm sure other's can add more. Hide 1 Reply

        Troutfisher Funny, I’m doing just the opposite, Dempster then the Dalton if I have time....  :)
    • Antonia-Jane & Edouard Duroux
      Antonia-Jane & Edouard Duroux Good for us though as you can tell us what they are like. Only dates we have booked are 3-5 July Denali so Dawson will be sometime after that & then Dempster. What are you traveling in? We are in a Lance Truck Camper.

    Anyone driving to Alaska from the US should look at this website for information on what not to bring into Canada.
