“Chicken Gold Camp & Outpost.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2009

We spent two nights here. On our way to Dawson City and on our return.

Everything was extremely clean including the restrooms.

The park is kid friendly, the owners, Mike and Lou Busby, are wonderful hosts.

Our four boys thought this was one of the best places they have ever been.

If your in to beautiful scenery, wonderful people, and gold, this is the perfect place. There are a few quirks around the town of Chicken such as the cannon firing of at closing time of the local saloon(they use the volunteered panties of the ladies that are there at that time for wadding). The campgrounds are perfect, either for RV,Tent, or trailer. The Outpost people are outstanding. They even show you where to dig to find the yellow stuff. Or you can pan there dirt they bring down fron their mining claim. I've always found a few flakes in every pan.
ALL in all they make it a wonderful experience, and I recommend it if your visiting Alaska.
