Real Arctic camping. This is a hostel-style accommodation in the Arctic Tent consisting of 4 bunks at the back of Alaskan Stoves Campground. You can rent the entire arctic tent for yourself or for yourself and 3 friends. There is parking beside the Arctic tent, a pic nic table and BBQ unit right outside the door. This is not an instant book--so send a request for the night you want and we'll check to make sure no one has reserved a single bunk. (If you want a single bunk, check the listing entitled: Arctic Tent: Dormitory Style Bunk)
Each bunk has a camp mattress. Most campers have their own sleeping bags so there is no bedding or linen. A pillow and sleeping bag can be rented for $5 each (one time fee for entire stay) from the host. Let us know ahead of time if you need bedrolls. You can pay when you arrive. A single bunk (which is a seperate listing) is $12 but to rent the whole tent for 4 people is only $45 (with 4 bed roles-$65).
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.
