Great location if you are hiking the Chilkoot trail. It is located very close to the trailhead. Its quiet and the owners are very knowledgeable about the Dyea area. We didn't spend much time here but it was a very convenient location. The breakfast was good and offered large portions before a big hike. They offer an optional dinner, which...

You won’t find better hosts Kathy and her husband, owners of the Chilkoot Trail Outpost. Our “girls’ trip” was absolutely wonderful thanks to the beautiful and inviting scenery and cabins at the lodge. Dinners and breakfast were delicious. The cabins are beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. I heartily recommend the ChikootTrail Outpost for anyone looking for comfort, good food, a...

We stayed with Kathy and Fred for a total of five nights during our August 2016 visit to Alaska. Our family of five spent two nights at the Outpost psyching ourselves up before hiking the Chilkoot Trail, and then three nights following recuperating from our exertions. The cabins are cozy, clean and comfortable. Kathy and Fred are incredible hosts. They...

Great cabins. Clean and comfy. Kathy was super helpful. This is a beautiful tranquil spot, just be aware that's it's a 9 mile mainly dirt road out of Skagway, so Kathys dinner was welcome! The Dyea valley is beautiful, allow some time to visit .
