Truck load of Bikes headed to Fairbanks, What to see?

Wife and I are going to drive through and in no hurry with a couple dual sports in the trunk. Truck, bikes and humans are all pretty rugged, wheres the best places to camp? Sites to see? Where to see wildlife? Great fishing? Great food? Best rides? Off road? Single track? Forest roads? Scenic rides? Driving from Washington State.
Thanks for any input. Happy trails.
Sean

Are you going straight from Tok to Fairbanks then north?

Stop, park truck, eat in Glenallen, ride bikes south toward Valdez, side trip (east) to Chitna, McCarthy if you have enough fuel.

We camped a couple of nights about 15 miles south of Glenallen in Copper Center. OK campground right on a river. Very scenic and pretty cheap if I remember. And as someone mentioned, get a copy of The Milepost. If you're goin' to Alaska, it's a must.

Denali area is outstanding! Cool riding out of Healy, off of Denali Hwy. Your only limit is your offroad skill.

Peace
