    Fort Wainwright, Alaska

    The perfect campground in Fairbanks with large and easy access pull-through full-hookup sites to set up your base to explore the Interior of Alaska. Only 2 hours from Denali Natl. Park and the base for a trip to the Arctic Circle. Lots to explore in the 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. Until May 21st and after August 21st, there may be a chance to see the Northern Lights. Need some rest? Plan for a lazy day at the campground - sit and relax at the patio by the river, play some outdoor games, or enjoy one of our propane fire pits while watching beautiful sunsets - but be advised - you may need to stay up late for that. Welcome to the Interior of Alaska!
