Come to Fairbanks!! There are plenty of ways to make your trip to Fairbanks
Accommodations: Fairbanks offers many campgrounds both in and around town. Most campgrounds charge a nominal fee and offer areas for cooking, dining as well as restrooms. Many campgrounds are not open year-round so be sure to check with the
Alaska Department of Natural Resources,
FNSB Parks and Recreation, or the
Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau. We also have two year-round youth hostels—perfect places to meet other travelers and compare notes!
But if you would rather stay someplace where you can feel more at home,
a hotel or a bed and breakfast can accommodate you and your party. The
rates for hotel rooms are often 50% less in the off season (mid
September through mid May) than during summer months. If you would like
to explore more options the
Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Borough
has more information.
