Chena Marina RV Park - Fairbanks, Alaska

We're having breakfast and we notice a lot of cars in the Pioneer Park parking lot. After I finish my cereal I walk over to see what's going on at the park and realize there's a charity run today. It's starting in 30 minutes and cars are quickly filling up the parking lot! If we don't leave very soon, we will be parked in til after the run. So I hurry back to the RV and we pack up the RV faster than we ever have! We're quickly getting parked in and we leave the parking lot with no time to spare. That was a little crazy.

We get some prescriptions refilled at Wal-Mart and then head out to the Chena Marina RV Park. We have reservations for six nights at this highly recommended RV park. It's a small RV park on the edge of a float plane pond. The staff is extremely friendly and we like our campsite across the pond from several float planes. A float plane takes off soon after we arrive -- they are very loud! We start wondering how early they start taking off in the morning.

After we're done setting up and checking out the park we take off to downtown Fairbanks to check out the visitors center. We look at the fountain, read some of the info boards, and pick up some flyers about the area.

Then back to the RV park for dinner and to relax watching a video about RVing in Alaska. The RV park has a large video library with free rentals.
