    January 31When is the best time to make plans for a trip to Alaska? Do we need to make reservations a year in advance like in Florida or are they easier to get? We will probably be leaving from Kansas.

      Dick & Nung January 31 All depends on what kind of traveler you are, what you want to do and where you like to stay.  My wife and I made a three month trip from Montana through Canada/Alaska a couple of years ago and never made one reservation.  We like to stay in sta...  more

      JL Peek January 31 We did not make any reservation on our trip to Alaska. If I did it again I would take cruise with a land package. Montana was the prettiest part of our drive.

      Jim -&karen collins January 31 Take you time and plan your routes, try to go only about 300 miles each day, that way you can check out all the places to stay and if you want to make reservations for parks or just wing it

      Ruth & Roger January 31 We left Pa on Memorial weekend to go to Alaska and we’re back by Labor Day. Never booked a campground except in busy areas. The hot springs on the Al Can, we stopped at lunch to get a spot. Just stop earlier than normal. You can park by the side of the ro...  more

      Hank & Shirleen January 31 Been the twice, never made any reservations easy in advance. That being said in busy area we would call and make reservations 1-3 days in advance while up there. Now Denali is a different story. If you are up there in early June you can probably get reser...  more

      Dick Kashdin January 31 That is a loaded question like when is the best time to retire or the best time to go full time.  But there are some things that should be taken into account.  (1) How much time is involved.  Our round trip to Alaska and back took about 3 m...  more

      xctraveler January 31 We spent 11 months running down the East coast to FL then across the South to LA then up the left coast into Canada and on up through Whitehorse to Dawson City and over the TOTW (Top of the World) Highway (nice name for 150 miles of dirt).Then every mmile...  more

      Birdie February 1 I would say if you want to stay at the top campground within Denali NP you should make your reservation as far ahead as you can. Many people enjoy staying there and it is mostly full. Check out the camping amenities so you go in ready. We only stayed 3 ni...  more

        xctraveler February 3 As I remember, the furthest in campground in Denali is on a lottery and once you get in to the campground you are required to not move your vehicles at all for the 3 day stay. The shuttle stops there and you get passes good for the duration of your stay o...  more

        Hank & Shirleen February 3 It wasn’t on a lottery in 2016 and we have heard no changes.  The Campground is Teklanika and is about 30 miles in. They stop you at about 15 miles in unless you have the campground reservations.  The only lottery we have heard about Is to be ab...  more

      Birdie February 3 It wasn’t on lottery when I went. It was reservation only. But if someone cancelled or was a no show you might get that spot. The shuttle was the best way to travel and see stuff. There were lots of hikers in most of the park. As the stupid folks did stup...  more

      Larnold0000 February 26 You can boondock a lot of places in Alaska.  We did so on the many pull outs - if there are 5 or more cars behind you, you have to pull out.  We also rented an RV close to the airport - nice units and great customer service.  It is hard to ...  more

        Birdie February 26 We found many of the dry camping spots closed during June and July. That is the most busy time of the year. After the first week in August all those closed areas were opened up. Traffic had changed from very busy to very casual. Campgrounds were really gl...  more
