Chicken Gold Camp and Outpost - Chicken, Alaska
Welcome to
      Chicken, Alaska

    The small town of Chicken is 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 is just south of the Taylor Highway on Airport Road in the center of Chicken, Alaska. It's built on the site of a placer gold camp established in the 1930s by the industrious Fairbanks Exploration Company for mining Chicken Creek with the Pedro Dredge, now a National Historic Site.

    At the "Chicken Gold Camp", you can explore the history of this early Alaska gold rush community, tour the gold dredge and mining museum, view an actual working gold mine, experience the thrill of panning or mining your own gold or recreational mining on our claims, and enjoy a latte in the Outpost while you browse the many handmade gifts: jewelry, clothing, carvings, paintings and much more .

    Enjoy wood-fired pizza and an Alaskan micro-brew on the deck with other guests, stay the night in the campground or rent a room or cabin and the next day enjoy a kayak trip on the river or some recreational gold mining or panning after breakfast with fresh baked scones and a espresso 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 several facebook pages: Chicken Gold Camp, Pedro Dredge and Chickenstock Music Festival

    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! Our friendly staff can provide community history, direct you to more tourist information and provide answers to FAQ.
