Northern Nights

North America's last great highway

The Haul Road is known in some circles as the North America's Last Great Highway. This 417-mile mostly gravel road runs from Fairbanks to Deadhorse, located on the shores of the Arctic Ocean and one of the farthest north communities in the United States. While this highway is traveled mostly by oil workers and pipeline supply truckers, vacationers also delight in the remote drive with its scenery and wildlife. Near the end of their northern trek, visitors can find a new type of accommodations called Deadhorse Camp, located just two miles south of Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay.

These rustic accommodations mirror pipeline exploration and construction-era lodging typically found in the area and throughout remote Alaska. Choose from the Base Camp Building, Drill Camp Wing or the Seismic Explorer Wing. Individual rooms offer twin beds. Shower and bathroom facilities are separate. For those who don't want to face the Dalton Highway alone, Northern Alaska Tour Company operates a multi-day Arctic Ocean Adventure drive with a stay at Deadhorse Camp.
