The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Alaska are often tougher than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great attractions for lots of people. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from
    the river if you want to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. There's camping available near Alpacka Rafts. The beautiful scenery of Anchorage Borough and the cool fresh
water have people coming here. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you'll find lots of paddling spots.
