        Great Place to stay on the way - not the Hilton thankfully

        Great place to stay on the Dalton Highway. Last place for a cold beer. Rooms have ensuite and are clean. Like everything on the Dalton, its expensive for what you get, but thats the way it is.

        Also stayed at Deadhorse Camp, run by the same people, better rooms no ensuites though.

        Food at Aurora Hotel in Prudhoe hard to beat, and overall deal at Prudhoe Hotel probably the best as dinner and breakfast included in the room rate.

        If you want a camp site for your RV with hookups here, be persistent. This camp is about midway between Fairbanks and Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay. Obviously staffed with under-trained but pleasant people and managed very loosely. My husband went in and asked how to get a camping spot with hookups for the RV and where to pay. The female at the counter told him they did not have hookups for RVs but we could drive around to the left and find a spot out of everyone's way to just park. When he came back to the RV with this info, I was shocked since all the reading literature and the guide at the Yukon River Camp had told us Coldfoot Camp was the only place on the Dalton Highway with RV hookups on the way to Deadhorse, and I had called ahead before we left Fairbanks and was told they did have RV sites with hookups.

        We drove around to the left as she'd instructed only to find the drive looped back around to the main road, no safe place to park. Decided to drive back to the other entrance and ask again. This time a young man finally came to the desk (desk was often unattended with several minutes wait time whether paying for a meal, buying propane, checking in, etc.). He did know they had RV hookups and sent us looking for a site up the hill "over there somewhere." Indeed, they have a handful of pull-through RV sites with water and 15 amp electric. No sewer, no dump station.

        Despite the staff snafus and waits, the meals were decent and all you can eat and the gift shop had a good supply of tshirts, sweatshirts, etc. Basic, no frills place. You pay for unreliable Wifi which is slow at best, and randomly shuts down completely, but was the most expensive WiFi we've found so far. However, it is a small slice of civilization in the middle of wilderness.�� We will stop here again on the way back to Fairbanks.

        No mosquito's in the room. Good food. Very kind and helpful personnel. Lots of awesome people there. Small rooms but warm. Tent camping during summer is more practical.

        July 10, 2016 - Day 2 on the Dalton Highway.

        Apparently yesterday was very tiring for both Deb and Jerry. They slept almost 12 hours with minimal interruptions. Jerry awoke about 2:00 am and took some amazing Sunrise pictures while Deb awoke thirsty and spent an hours or so drinking water and reading afterward both back to bed. About 11:00 …

        This morning we got up around 7:30 and grabbed a stack of quarters (It cost 1 quarter per min for showers at Svens) and showered and got packed up (including some fresh strawberries we had purchased yesterday). Sven offered for us to keep our "extra gear" there until we got back from Prudhoe Bay, but we explained we didn't have any "extra gear". …

        ... the security gates and drive you the last few miles to the arctic ocean. We opted out of this since we were not planning on staying in Prudhoe but rather our thoughts were on getting back through the nasty construction zones and over Atigun pass before foul weather and snow decided to make us a more permanent resident of the arctic landscape. We made a few phone calls and found out that there was a truck/hardware store called Brooks Range ...

        ... because of the permafrost. In the early years people came to Coldfoot in search of gold, now it is a service area and tourist landing strip. The was a snow grader on the edge of the airstrip. Lots of people come in the winter to view the 'Northern Lights'. They are said to be spectacular from here. We saw a group of hunters loading gear into a plane that would drop them upstream on the river and they would come back on a rubber raft. ...
