“Immaculate Campground with very clean Outhouses!”
Reviewed July 21, 2009

My husband and I recently drove the Dalton Hwy (Haul Rd) from Fairbanks to Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay. We chose Marion Creek Campground to spend the night both coming and going.

There is a campground host at Marion Creek, and they do a great job of keeping the outhouses and grounds very clean. I'm not a big fan of outhouses, so for me to praise the ones at Marion Creek is a big deal!

The camping fee was $8/night. Each site is spacious with a gravel base, fire ring, and picnic table. Firewood is available (FREE!) in an enclosed "shed" near the front entrance. There is an abundance of trees and foliage between sites, for some degree of privacy. There is also potable water available.

The only downside to camping is the mosquitoes - but you'll find that up and down the Dalton in the summertime. It's just the way it is. I've never worn a head net in 6 years of living in AK, but was happy to have one on this trip.

Many folks will tow a campground up the Dalton to this point, and then drop it here and continue the drive to Prudhoe without it. The road gets increasingly rough past Coldfoot, so this is a good idea.

I would highly recommend Marion Creek Campground to anyone traveling the Dalton Hwy! It's close enough to Coldfoot Camp if you want to grab a bite to eat and fill up the gas tank too.
