There is so much beautiful scenery and wildlife around every corner, I spent entire days just driving up and down the Alaska Highway. Lots of unique sights and places to pull over for photos and sightseeing.
At least we can say we drove the Alaskan highway although it was just from Delta Junction to TOK. Pretty much a straight shot but still some good scenery in very good condition. I had wanted to go down to Haines but the mileage was...More
The road is improved over the last decade. It must be difficult to keep repairs going during the short season of weather in which road crews can work. Weather wrecks havoc with roads. We had no problem navigating the road and the scenery and wildlife...More
I drove from Glennallen to Fairbanks and saw some spectacular country, the big Alaska pipeline, and hardly any people. The scenery was varied and we saw a host of animals wandering about. The drive itself is enjoyable to the point that my 11 year old...More
Our journey was 44 days and 11292 miles of pure delight. Having the Milepost with us made It even more enjoyable. It is full of so much useful information. Landmarks, mountain and river names, forest fire history, historical sites, gas stations, restaurants, and on and...More
Unfortunately most of the mystique is gone as are many of historic markers sites. Only a few of the traditional lodges (gas, restaurant and motel) remain. The views can be good. The road can be rough and windshield damage likely. The provincial parks in Canada...More
Unlike other years, we have very few delays for road repairs this July! The small creeks along the Nabesna Road were shallow enough for us to drive all of the way to the end at Nabesna gold mine (it is closed to the public).
We drove the section from Tetlin Junction to Haines Junction. The highway is an impressive feat of engineering, though there is not much to show for it along the way. The best section is further to the south of that stretch as there are amazing...More
Just completed. Expect broken windshields due to gravel spread on ice and snow areas. Lots of commercial traffic, particularly logging trucks. Road surfaces are improved from last trip 18 months ago. Fuel availability was not an issue. Visibility and changing weather along with speed faster...More
We drove the Alaska Highway so can only speak to the beauty of that. However we were told that if given the chance we should do the Cassiar. I thought the Yukon was the most beautiful part of the Alaska Highway, but in all... More
We drove the Alaska Highway so can only speak to the beauty of that. However we were told that if given the chance we should do the Cassiar. I thought the Yukon was the most beautiful part of the Alaska Highway, but in all honesty we were in constant awe for the whole ride!!!

I have not stayed in a campground with a reservation and have made the drive twice in an RV. perhaps in some of the bigger city areas it would reduce stress to know where you would spend the night, and if they take reservations at Lliard hot springs that would be worth the effort to guarantee a stop at that wonderful little park. Part of the fun and adventure of the drive is knowing you are self-contained and you might really benefit and enjoy keeping your schedule flexible, staying longer at the locations that really appeal vs compelling yourself to move on to meet an itinerary.
