Campsites and RV Parks in Alaska

Alaska can be described in one syllable--huge. The state covers more than a half a million square miles, and south to north the airline distance is the same from Ketchikan to Barrow as from El Paso, Texas, to the Canadian border.

The southeast coast, rainy but mild, is a maze of wilderness islands and channels with seemingly endless forests, topped by spectacular glaciered ranges. Except for Haines, Hyder, and Skagway, no towns are connected by highway to any place else, so sightseeing by ship or air is common. Short cruises on small ships are offered in some communities. The towns also are connected by the Alaska State Ferry System, known as the Marine Highway.

The Chicken Gold Camp & Outpost is just south of the Taylor Highway on Airport Road in the center of Chicken, Alaska. It's built on the site of a camp established in the 1930s by the industrious Fairbanks Exploration Company for mining Chicken Creek with the Pedro Dredge. At the "Gold Camp," you'll explore the history of this early mining community, tour the gold dredge, view an actual working gold mine, experience the thrill of panning your own gold and enjoy a cappuccino in the Outpost while you browse the many unique gifts. Stay the night in the campground or rent a cabin and the next day enjoy a kayak trip on the river or some fishing after breakfast in the café.
