The preferred campground in Fairbanks with beautiful views of Chena River. Set up camp at one of our large and easy access pull-through full-hookup sites and take some time to relax or explore the Interior of Alaska or recover from having conquered the ALCAN Highway. We also have a few sites for monthly or seasonal stays.
What to do and visit?
Our RV park between Fairbanks and North Pole is only 2 hours from Denali Nat'l. Park and the base for a trip to the Arctic Circle. Lots to explore in the Fairbanks area, such as taking a narrated Riverboat cruise on the Chena River, finding out more about gold mining at Gold Dredge8, visiting the Alaska Pipeline viewpoint, soaking in warm Chena Hot Springs, visiting Pioneer Park with a mouth-watering Salmon Bake dinner and show, learning more at the Museum of the North in Fairbanks, or visiting Santa Claus House in the North Pole. Take a trip to the Arctic Circle, only 200 miles Northwest from us. If Dalton Highway up to Prudhoe Bay and tipping your toes in the Arctic Ocean is on your bucket list, we can help you with parking your RV at our overflow parking area while you tackle that adventure with your truck or SUV.
Need some rest and enjoy the campground?
Plan for a lazy day at the campground - sit and relax at the patio by the river, play some outdoor games, such as horseshoes, corn hole, giant Jenga and 4-in-a-row, let your pets run in our 2'400 sq ft dog park, or enjoy one of our propane fire pits while watching beautiful sunsets - but be advised - you may need to stay up late for that.
Staying a month or for the season?
If you plan on staying at least 30 days, inquire for our extended stay and monthly or seasonal rates. We have limited space available - book early. Check here for more information.
Can they be seen at our campground? As we are relying on nature, there is no guarantee that you will be able to see the Northern Lights during your trip in Alaska. Between May 21st and August 21st there is too much light at night, so this natural beauty can't be seen. But if you are staying in our area before or after these dates, you have a chance - with some patience and long nights.
