Chicken Gold Camp & Outpost

1/4 mile Airport Rd Chicken, AK
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. You don’t have to camp out to experience the magic of Chicken. Enjoy a peaceful night’s rest after a full day of activities or travel. The Chicken Gold Camp offers cabins or rooms with a common kitchenette. Your cabin or room location will provide a great vista of the Chicken Creek valley and surrounding mountains. If your visit is during the summer, you might awaken to a midnight moose visitor. If you visit in late summer or fall, you can expect to view the Northern Lights dancing overhead.
