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, now a National Historic Site.
An outpost in the wilderness with a handful of hearty souls savoring the raw Alaska ... dog sledding... gold
mining... ghosts of last century's Alaska gold rush, including Anne Purdy who wrote the acclaimed book "Tisha"... the Fortymile
caribou herd... a float trip on a very historic Wild & Scenic River... Arctic grayling fishing... fields of
brilliant fireweed... wolves... the Northern Lights or Midnight Sun... take your pick, it's all
here. And more!
The Chicken Gold Camp & Outpost
At the "Chicken Gold Camp", you can explore the history of this early mining community,
tour the gold dredge and mining museum, view an actual working gold mine, experience the thrill of panning your
own gold or recreational mining on our claims, and enjoy a cappuccino in the Outpost while you browse the many handmade gifts.
Enjoy dinner and entertainment on the deck, stay the
night in the campground or rent a cabin and the next day enjoy a kayak trip on the river or some gold panning after breakfast in the cafe. Chicken is completely "off the grid", so you can expect a rustic but comfortable adventure.
We invite you to explore our Web site to see the facilities, the beauty of the area and the many ways to enjoy it. A slide show can be viewed and dozens of large photographs
have been posted to allow you to see the details.
To see what we're up to on a daily basis year-round, we also have a blog,
and a page at Facebook.
If you have any questions, you'll find that we're easy to get in touch with, and easy to talk to - we'd love to be part of your Alaska adventure!
