Alaska Dogstead Yurts

5055 Fish Creek Rd   Big Lake, Alaska

Exterior Summer Yurts

Welcome to our Alaskan dogstead. We endeavor to make your stay comfortable in our 20ft. diameter yurts, and adventurous evening sled dog tours.

The site is brand new, with a soft opening this year in Summer 2021. Please be aware some areas of landscaping have not been completed, and the yurts are still in the process of refinement. Also note, the Goose Bay yurt will be available later this summer. Goose Bay yurt, when it comes online, will feature a single king size bed.

Exterior Summer Yurts


Denali, Willow, Eureka and Copper Basin are all 20 foot diameter yurts. They all feature a custom built bunkbed, twin over full, with a spiral staircase. The first three also have a queen bed and sleep 5. Copper Basin has an additional twin rollaway and can sleep 4. This ADA compliant yurt has an entrance ramp added to the doorway. All four of these yurts have electricity and running water. There is a half-bath with a deep sink, no shower. For now, showers are available in Big Lake at the laundromat (coin-op).

The yurts feature:

  • Kitchenette with a mini fridge
  • Hot Plate
  • Microwave
  • Coffee maker
  • Pots, pans, and dishes.
  • All yurts are heated with a wood stove.

The facility is no pets, and no smoking. Thank you!

Evening Sled Dog Tour

A 7pm sled dog tour is offered to the yurt customers for $150pp / $100child age 2-12.

Nic would like everyone to know that there are other tours at different times of the day, and although it might be tempting to walk over to the kennel to see the dogs, please only come over at the time scheduled for your tour.
