Alaska River Guide (9780882404974);1993, p48
The article gives a couple of tips for selecting campsites during a river trip in Alaska. Choose campsites that put the least stress on the environment. Camping on gravel bars is the least destructive to plants. Along rivers, clearwater tributaries are inviting for campsites, but these areas are also among the most productive in terms of fish and wildlife resources, which a camp would disturb. Do not camp in one location for more than a few days unless it is already an established campsite. Pitch tents in sand or gravel or under the forest canopy rather than on wildflower meadows or tundra.
