This is a great campground for dry camping. Plenty of pull through sites and the price is right, especially with a Senior National Park Pass, $4/night.

The girl approached us and we chatted for a bit while we waited on the pilot car to return. We told here that we saw a Griz the night before and she said that she had worked up here for 10 years and still has yet to see one in Prudhoe. I was very glad to see a tractor trailer pull up ...
... colder every mile north we went. This was about the time doubt began to creep into my mind as to why we were making this trip as the value seemed to reduce with every mile of slick, tractor trailer laden, wet, dirt road that I knew we would have to return home on.
We finally made it to Coldfoot, AK which is about the half way point between Prudhoe Bay and Fairbanks (the last semblance of civilization). We pulled into the shack which is supposed to ...
