This is a hostel-style accommodation in the Arctic Tent consisting of 4 bunks at the back of Alaskan Stoves Campground. Each bunk is $12 per night and has a camp mattress. There is no bedding or linen but a pillow and sleeping bag can be rented for $5 (one time fee for entire stay) from the host. Let us know ahead of time if you need this. Sometimes campers want the tent to themselves and rent all four beds which gives a slight reduction in price. Check the listing "Genuine Arctic Tent: Sleeps 4) There is parking beside the Arctic tent, a pic nic table and BBQ unit right outside the door.
Beside 40 Mile Air, you will love seeing the planes (no--not a lot of air traffic) and the genuine bush pilots of rural Alaska. Fast Eddy's restaurant is located across the Highway. The grocery is a mile to the west and can be a brisk walk using the pathway that runs adjacent to the Alaskan Highway. There are walking paths up and down the highway throughout town and leading to gift shops, gold shops, and the Visitor's Center, which is a wealth of information.

Fantastic place! As described, the covered cooking area was perfect and attention to detail made things so easy and convenient! The hot showers and clean facilities were perfect! Have already recommended through our travels that others stay here as well.
