We are an Alaskan family owned and operated RV Park & Cabins. We pride ourselves in our clean facilities and friendly service. Our high ratings with Good Sam, reflect our dedication to serving our customers with the best possible service.

When driving the Alaska Highway, the first Alaskan RV park you encounter is the Tok RV Village & Cabins (Mile 1313.4), built and run by the Jernigans, a longtime Alaska family. The campground opened in 1986, with 50 sites, and was developed previous year while Jerry Jernigan worked on the Alaska pipeline. Over the following six summers, Jerry, Rose and Michael commuted from Anchorage to Tok each weekend, as they oversaw the management of the park, added amenities, increased the number of sites, now over 150, and improved services.

Tok Junction was chosen for the park for its location as a jumping-off point for all highway traffic entering and departing Alaska. It’s roughly a day’s drive from several major cities (Whitehorse is 400 miles to the east and Fairbanks is 212 miles away) and serves as an excellent place for a rest break, restocking supplies, and reviewing travel plans. The Jernigans are always eager to answer travel questions and assist with plans for visiting the “Last Frontier.”

Make us your base camp and take advantage of all that Tok has to offer,

  • Nature trails and paved walking/bike paths
  • Bird watching
  • Tetlin Wildlife Refuge Headquarters and Alaska Public Lands Information Center
  • Visit mini-museums in Alaska: Pioneer life, Gold mining and Alaska Wildlife.
  • Fish in our nearby streams and lakes
  • Pan for Gold.
