Its been a few years since I last visited Chicken and Dawson and I wasn't expecting anything too different, but when we stopped in Tok, someone suggested we check out the "new place", the Chicken Gold Camp. Turns out it isn't too new, they have been around for 5 or 6 years, but its quite a change since the last visit. Chicken has grown, but it definitely is good growth. Just don't let it go to your head and invite Walmart in!
The owners of the Chicken Gold Camp have been working in Chicken for a long time, mostly mining. They have built a nice place and have kind of a museum of old mining stuff by the dredge that they moved from up the creek. There are pictures of the move on the front of the Outpost, their store and cafe. I remember reading about the move in the Fairbanks newspaper. Pretty amazing story.
We had a great time in Chicken...panned some gold, kayaked the river, had a beer in the saloon, took the dredge tour and more. Ate good, slept good and made some good friends. What more could you ask for...certainly not Walmart...Rock on little Chicken!
- Pros:It was all good...very good.
- Cons:Had to leave too soon!
- In a nutshell:Chicken was a "clucking" good time!
