    This is a stop about 66 miles up the Taylor highway just before it goes gravel northbound. It has a couple of 30 amp sites, but most are 20 amp. The sites are okay, but basically a gravel parking lot. Most sites are pull through. You can pan for gold for free there and there is a dredge you can see too. They have a dump station and water fill too, plus gas and diesel. I would not do more than an overnighter here though.

    Sort of a place in the road - with a big metal chicken (or three, actually) - and folks do pan for gold (we even saw a nugget)

    PLEASE NOTE: The last two pictures are of the NEIGHBORING CG. That's where the dredge and giant chicken are. I stayed at the City of Chicken one since they seemed to have better power.

    Yup! They were afraid nobody would be able to spell ptarmigan, so they settled on Chicken.

    In Idaho there is a street names chicken dinner road,
    CALDWELL, Idaho – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is asking the Mayor Garret L. Nancolas of Caldwell to rename Chicken Dinner Road on behalf of the namesake poultry, The Mayor says no way.
