When you stay at the Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park, you’re just a few blocks from the heart of downtown Anchorage, but you also get to hang out right where the locals fish. The famed Ship Creek offers plenty of action for anglers, birders and spectators.
Skagway Mountain View RV Park is within walking distance to a variety of entertainment, historical sites and eateries. “Mountain View” is the perfect name for this wooded setting at the base of White Pass, so you may want to just kick back and enjoy the view while you surf the park’s wi-fi, catch up on laundry and enjoy the clean shower/restroom facilities.
Set on 80 acres of Alaskan wilderness overlooking the Kenai River estuary, this RV park offers sites for every size rig (including pull-through and super-size), and all come with water, sewer, and 50-amp electric hookups. You also get free use of the park’s amenities: bath and shower house, Wi-Fi, fire rings, fish-cleaning stations, basketball courts, horseshoe pits, viewing deck, and trails.
This is now called the Kendesnii Campground. This is now a developed campground with 10 sites, with picnic tables, fire rings, trails, and restrooms. Kendesnii Campground is a great place to fish and view wildlife. A hie of about a half mile to the south and over the ridge will take you to Jack Lake and more beautiful views of the Wrangell Mountains.
This area was once the site of the Lassen airstrip. In the 1930s and ‘40s, air service flew supplies into the area. Before this, the only way to get fuel and other supplies to the mining camps was by sledding them up-river during the winter.

If you're not heading right back to Anchorage, here's another great side trip. A scenic 19-mile drive north takes you into the park. Lake Louise is known for its trout and grayling fishing, views of Tazlina Glacier and Lake, and berry picking—harvest wild strawberries and blueberries in July and August, or cranberries come September.
