RV Parks & Cabins

Tok RV Village & Cabins – It’s all in the Family

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 (the reason he and his family moved from Portland, in 1975) and his wife, Rose, and son, Michael, were employed by a construction company in Anchorage.

Over the following six summers, Jerry, Rose, and Michael commuted from Anchorage to Tok each weekend, as the oversaw management of the park, added amenities, increased the number of sites (now 162), and improved services. Their hard work paid off, in July 2007 when the Good Sam RV Club gave Tok RV Village & Cabins its highest rating of any park in Alaska: 9.5 out of 10.

The Jernigans retired in 1991 and now live in Tok full-time. Jerry, Rose and Michael run the park with the help of Michael’s son, Chad, and daughter, Ashley (both born and raised in the RV park). Rose is responsible for guest registrations, reservations, and operations of the gift store, while Jerry and Michael handle ongoing maintenance and improvements.

The Jernigans pride themselves on the cleanliness of the RV park. “Clean is an understatement,” Jerry says.
The park is big-rig friendly, with over 100 pull-throughs, and has tents sites, and ample space and greenery.
When asked what he appreciates most about the park, Michael says, “Everything works. You want 50amps? You get it. The breakers aren’t popping off, lots of hot water, washers and dryers work, and the Wi-Fi Internet and cable TV are always up and running.”

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.”

“We really enjoy meeting all the people,” says Jerry, with a smile. “That’s what makes this such a nice business.”
