VOTED #1 HIPCAMP IN ALASKA 2019! 

We are a full-service lodge in the middle of nowhere! Come check us out.

We have a grassy campground where you can pitch your tent and look at Clearwater Mountain. You will have the comforts of campground bathrooms with showers. If you need a place to do your laundry during your trip, we offer those services too. You can cook on your own on the campground grills or eat at our bar.

You can do our C&B package (that is, "Camp and Breakfast"—tent camp in the campground and enjoy breakfast in our main lodge in the morning). Additional $15 per person to add breakfast, let the Sluice Bar staff know you'd like C&B, breakfast is at 8:30 in the main lodge. 

Many options here. If you prefer lodging, look for our lodge rooms or cabin-style rooms listings. You might see moose walking through the camp, helicopters taking loads out to the gold mine or copper mine nearby, check out the original trapper cabin, Denali Road crew cabin (where workers lived while building the Denali Highway), meat cache, blueberry picking in the summer, bird watching, or book a 4-wheeler tour to go deeper into the back country.

RV camping - you can do that here! Bring your generator for power if you need it. You must be self-contained, no dumping available here. We do have a fantastic campground you can park in and enjoy the natural beauty.

Internet is not available in the campground, it can be purchased and you will be directed where to get the best signal.

Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We did dinner in the lodge 1 night, which was excellent. But $15 for a hot dog? Really?

This camp is so great!! Breathtaking views and interesting history. I would 100% recommend the stay if you’re coming through the area. Make sure to stop in the sluice box bar! Saw multiple moose and moose calves

Had a great night sitting at the Sluice Box bar, woke to a fresh coating of snow on the peaks across from us.
Nice folks, huge beer selection, always appreciated.

Good place on the Denali Highway. The tent sites are nestled in behind some of the lodge buildings. Views of the southern face of the Alaska Range were stunning on a clear day. The Sluice Box Bar was a nice frontier bar experience, and the meal we had at the lodge one night of our stay was the best meal we had on our whole trip.
Know what you are getting into regarding the Denali Highway. If fifty miles of dirt road is not something you are willing to deal with, then this is not the spot for you, but if you have a vehicle that a dirt road is no trouble for, then this place is awesome.

Really fun stay in a unique location. The place really gives you that Alaska vibe and the people are extremely kind. We had a lot of fun there and the Sluice Bar was an awesome place to sit and chill. Definitely would recommend
