Alaska Highway construction crews working from opposite directions connected the highway at Beaver Creek in October 1942, thus making it possible for the first time for vehicles to travel the entire length of the highway.

Open year-round, 24/7, the Canadian Customs station is located about 2 miles north of town and the U.S. Customs station (and U.S./Canada border) is about 20 miles north of town. Travelers stop only at the station for the country they are entering, not leaving.

Lodging (cabins and RV/tenting), gifts and dining available year-round at Buckshot Betty’s phone 867-862-7111 or email; and lodging, gift shop and gas/diesel and RV and tenting at Beaver Creek RV Park & Motel. Beaver Creek has gas/diesel, a post office and ATMs.
