Welcome to Alaskan Trails RV and Camper Park, a touring site located only 48miles from Anchorage and under an hour drive to Talkeetna. The site is also located within a short distance to Hatchers Pass and Independence Mine.

The area is filled with attractions and many activities including dog sledding, fishing, golfing and horse-riding are available.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The site is conveniently located for many activities and attractions including the famous mines. If you wish to go to gold mines or to even prospect for gold there are 3 that are handy: the Crow Creek Mine which is located in Girdwood, the Petersville Mine is in Petersville near Trapper Creek or the Independence Mine which is up in Hatchers Pass.
In Hatchers Pass, besides the beautiful view (the view alone is worth the trip) there are horseback rides with Alaska Riding Adventures, a petting zoo and ATV rentals.
If you want to spot other animals, you could go to the Reindeer Farm in Palmer, which is about 15 miles from the campsite, or to the Muskox Farm which gives tours and has an interpretive museum, gift shop, and picnic area. Palmer also has an open-air market every Friday from May to August.
For the real adventurer, there is the Alaska Toy Rentals and Outfitting – they rent all kinds of play toys for big boys and give guided tours.
For a little calmer type of activities about 10 miles away is the Happy Trails Kennels of Martin Buser. They give kennel tours, demonstrate the fine art of mushing sled dogs, and you get to meet and pet the puppies!
About 7 miles from the park in the other direction you will find the Iditarod Museum and Headquarters. A few miles beyond them is the Knik Museum. Alternatively, you can turn around and go into the heart of Wasilla where you can visit the Dorothy Page Museum. Only 1 mile from the property is the Transportation Museum which also gives rides on a miniature train on weekends throughout the summer months.
For the avid fisherman, we are 7 miles from the Little Su River where you can cast your line out and fish for Kings or Silvers depending on which variety are running at the time.
And there are 3 different golf courses locally - one in Palmer, one in Settlers Bay (on Knik Goose Bay Rd) and Sleepy Hollow in Wasilla for those of you who golf.
