I am planning on driving to and exploring Alaska by car next summer. I'll be taking my OC1 and am looking for any recommendations for road accessible class II-III. Even back road accessible as I am driving a capable 4x4. Also where are good whitewater hangouts, festivals, races, etc. I am towing a small RV and am also looking for good dispersed camping spots, preferably close to rivers and outdoor activities. I realize it is a huge state and there is tons of whitewater, but road accessible must narrow the field a little? It would be great to hook up with some locals or any boaters that are heading up from the lower 48. Any guide book recommendations? Might have room for another boat if someone needs a delivery. Thank you up front for any help.

Cool. We are heading North in early June and have to be home the end of August. No itinerary what so ever. We will treat every day as a new adventure. Is there camping and other other exploring we could do in the area? We may just show up and hang out for a bit if that's OK.

There is tons of camping and exploring here in the Yukon. Water is high in June so lots of good paddling. Most of the land is free range, explore and camp where you want which means lots of gems to find.

i guess I should include the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon, and Northwest Territories since I could pass through them on the way up and back.

The Manitoba Whitewater Shindigg Festival weekend is 22-24 June this year.

Camping on site.

Whitewater paddling—canoe, kayak, odd SUP.
