Description

Good to spend a night. Quite a lot of places to stay. DO NOT park-up on the airfield, it is regularly used by aircraft.

Stopped here and met two other expedition trucks… very cool. After watching two aircraft approach the field and land I can confirm that the strip is operational!

the construction camp is gone, so again a quiet place to stay

Report Check-In

This is a nice spot. The work camp is gone. Easy access off highway. Some highway noise but nothing bad and out of view from it. Tons of flat places to choose. Walking the airstrip is pleasant. There is a trail to the river.

Currently being used as a camp for construction crews, but still lots of room so we just parked out of the way for the night. Do NOT park on the airstrip.

Report Check-In

Lots of room, no facilities. Good for a night but not scenic.

Report Check-In

As stated before. Good boondocking, fairly quiet. No bugs at this time of the year

Report Check-In

Nice spot for a free overnight. lots of bugs. But quiet and peaceful. No service but level sites just a little way off the highway.

Report Check-In

As described, nice area with plenty of room. Nearby airfield still seems in operation with mowed grass and fuel tanks for planes. Quad tracks lead down toward river for a nice hike. Several other travels there and they were friendly. Felt safe. We found that the campsite is also listed in the Milepost book.

Cool old overgrown campground with lots of flat space. Go in past the airstrip and there are many sites with old campfire pits. Quiet place with lots of mosquitoes

Report Check-In

Used to be a Provincial Park of some kind but has kind of been taken over by the locals. Lots of space. No services.

Report Check-In

Nice flat area next to a grass strip airfield. lots of room, wide spaces between fire pits. We camped, but never got out of our van due to the large number of bees. The airfield itself and the camping area are covered in clover. other than the bees, this is a very nice place to stop.

Report Check-In

abandoned campground without facilities but got fireplaces and should be a quiet and very good boondock. When we came in the Prophet River Indigenous Community was holding a meeting there and they shared many stories and good food with us. Lovely people and a good night in the Alaskan bush (came with Aurora Borealis)
