Welcome To Chicken Gold Camp & Outpost
Also known as Chicken RV Park and campground, is just south of the Taylor Highway on Airport Road in the middle 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 and prospecting Chicken Creek with the Pedro Dredge, a bucket line gold dredge that is now a National Historic Site. Some of the historic gold camp and many of the gold mining relics are preserved in an outdoor museum and open to the public. At the "Chicken Gold Camp & Outpost", you can explore the history of this early Alaska gold rush community, tour the gold dredge and mining museum, view an actual working Alaska gold mine, experience the thrill of panning or mining your own gold or recreational mining and prospecting for gold nuggets on our claims, and enjoy an espresso in the Outpost while you browse the many handmade gifts: jewelry, clothing, carvings, paintings, pottery and other Alaska made gifts. Enjoy wood-fired pizza and an Alaskan micro-brew on the deck with other guests and perhaps some live, local music; stay the night in the RV park/campground or rent a room or log cabin and the next day enjoy a kayak trip on the 40Mile river or some recreational gold mining, suction dredging or gold panning after an egg and sausage souffle breakfast and tasty fresh baked scones with a mocha or latte in the cafe. Chicken is completely "off the grid", so you can expect a somewhat rustic but comfortable wilderness adventure. In keeping with the quirky, fun-loving character of the community, the folks at Chicken Gold Camp put on a music festival every June, usually the 2nd weekend.

Nearby Activities

Chickenstock Music Festival started as a one night, one band local get-together in 2007, but now is one of Alaska's better known summer weekend music gatherings with 15+ bands entertaining nearly 1000 guests. We have added an aerial "chicken peep" drop for the kids, contests for kids of all ages (2 to 92), food & drinks, camping and of coarse the chicken dance led by our own 'chickaneers'. Chickenstock 2015 was recorded live; the CD will be available starting at Chickenstock 2016, the 10th annual event which will be held June 10th and 11th. We invite you to explore our Web site to see the RV park and facilities, the beauty of the area and the many ways to enjoy it. A slide show can be viewed; dozens of large photographs have been posted to allow you to see what Chicken, Alaska and the area are all about. 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.
