ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Jan. 23, 2018 — The Alaska Campground Owners Association (ACOA) has published its 2018 RV & Camping Guide, which is being distributed at RV shows across North America.

“We’re very pleased with redesign of our camping guide,” said Shannon Miller, ACOA’s executive director, adding that the association has initially printed 20,000 copies of the guide.

The guide is printed as a 4 by 9 inch rack card on durable paper, but folds out to 24 by 36 inches, like a map. It features listings of 40 campgrounds and RV parks in nine different regions of Alaska, including Anchorage; the Northern Region, which includes North Pole, a city near Fairbanks; the Denali Region, the Matanuska (Susitna) Valley; the Tok Cutoff - Taylor Highway Region; the South Richardson Highway Region; the Kenai / Soldotna Peninsula Region; and the Southeast Region, which includes Haines and Juneau.

The ACOA guide also includes maps of several regions of Alaska and Canada’s Yukon Territory as well as advertisements for several campground resorts and companies that provide halibut and salmon fishing tours as well as jeep tours on the scenic Denali Highway.

The guide was produced as a collaborative effort with Crowley, Texas-based Texas Advertising and printed by a local company in Alaska by ACOA. It can be ordered through www.alaskacampgrounds.net. It will be distributed at sports and outdoorsmen shows in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Wasilla as well as RV shows across North America.
