Visiting Denali National Park today was awesome. They opened up an additional 15 mile stretch of road to the public since the busses were not running, but the road was clear. Saw three moose and an eagle!!
Spending the night in a snowy Riley campground without any services, but it’s free. [emoticon]

Are you saying it was worth it?

Was it worth it? Heck yes! I am staying tomorrow to do some hiking with snowshoes. I can see where this place may get crowded in season, but in this “shoulder season “ there are relatively few visitors. For example, in the Riley campground there are 100+ campsites and only two campers (me and one other group). No bugs and moose wandering around.
Looking forward to visiting the Kenai Peninsula.

At Homer, on the Kenai Penn, there is a free campground right at the shore side of the spit. Great view of the big tides. When we were there some Baluga whales right off camp sites.

I know I am off topic on this, but I will give it a try.
I am trying to make plans to drop this rental RV in Anchorage in two weeks. I will be coming from Soldotna and heading north to Anchorage. Is there an open RV campground or legal parking spot about an hour south of Anchorage? Most of the public campgrounds were still closed on my way to Seward.

You can stay at the Turnagain snowmobile park at the top of the pass. It is a large paved park with two restrooms and is free.

I think that I stopped at this place on the way to Seward. Might be my best option.

The Hotel Aleyska complex offers (paid) overnight RV parking, I assume year round since it's primarily a ski area. Particularly if you have a clear day the 7 Glaciers restaurant is highly recommended (but bring plenty of money).
