Been there twice now. What you don't know before you get there is they have a petting zoo, sled dog puppies, and sled dog rides. It is a mushers camp as well. The food is ok, not great. But it is a cute little stop...More

If you are driving between Skagway and Whitehorse, this place works for a bathroom stop. Everything else seemed a little commercialized and lacked a sense of authenticity (for me). I prefer the stop at Carcross which includes a visit to the Alaska Railroad Station and...More

We stopped in here for lunch on our Yukon Discovery tour. Lunch was good. Drinks were cold and the donuts were free. Cool little place to eat in a covered wagon. We also were able to pet a couple of puppy sled dogs.
