Can we travel to Alaska at the end of June?

We had a 2 week vacation planned and air tickets booked. Plan was to visit national parks. We are a family of four. 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 6 and 9). We haven't booked accommodations or planned any itinerary...since we booked air tickets in January and situation changed so much so quickly after that.

Thoughts? Advice? If flights are not cancelled ..I am inclined to go..and be very careful about precautions etc.

Alaska still requires anyone arriving from out of state to self quarantine for 14 days. When that restriction will be lifted still hasn't been determined so it's anyone's guess if they will be lifted by the end of June. You should go to the official state government COVID 19 website (Phased-Reopen-Doc.pdf) to track the latest info and then act accordingly. You should also go to the US National Parks website to find out when they will reopen the ones in Alaska you want to visit.

I would not want to be traveling that soon. I saw SeaTac (international airport Seattle) is now requiring masks, among quite a few others mentioned. Even if you could pull it off, for me it would be too stressful. To spend the money on a big vacation with all the uncertainty hanging over it, just not worth it to me. Personal opinion only..

While you can still fly to Alaska, there is still the problem of the 14 day quarantine to deal with.

You can also read the Alaska Daily News for coverage. (adn.com)
