there are rent a camp spots near the crossing. theres free spots along the road. I camp on the Copper river gravel bar... tons of spots after you cross the Copper. its about 60 miles in from there, and the road is really good, you can usually blast it in under an hour if you want. there will be plenty of daylight .... as in, it won't really get dark, so there is time to goof off on the way. camping on the sand bar has the advantage of having a bit of wind that keeps the mosquitoes down (by a lot). camping in the woods is buggy, July is pretty much peak mozzy time.
