    Default Memorial Weekend Camping?

    Just found out my parents are coming up for Memorial Day weekend...

    Any ideas for camping ideas (cabin preferred) where it won't be super packed?

    Ya thats a bit far...my parents are definitely ok with road tripping a fair ways out of Anchorage but it seems all of the decent lodging & public use cabins are booked. I am thinking of trying for McCarthy or taking the ferry out to Kodiak for the weekend.

    Parents have already been up a few times and done most of the touristy stuff, just looking for someplace with some amazing scenery to hang out with them.

    You will not find a place that isn't super packed on Memorial Day weekend. Hell, up here every wide spot on a back road seems to have someone camped at it. You can check the state pulic use cabins, but I bet they are reserved already

    Default If you have the time and money.

    I'd rent an R.V. and drive toward Denali. I've never gone that far over Memorial weekend, but the rest of the summer, the further you go, the fewer people you'll see and the scenery is always fantastic. We stayed at a campground about 30 miles this side of Cantwell in early August, and had the place nearly to ourselves! It's several hours of driving, but worth it for the solitude if you ask me.

    Exit Glacier Campground near Seward. It's a no vehicle campground. You park in the parking lot then walk about a 100 yds to a campsite. I have had no problem getting a campsite here, even on 4th of July weekend with no reservation.

    If you want a public use cabin I would try to reserve one now.
