Explorenorth - could you note any large gas stations on your travels for my website please? (see my profile).

What's a "large gas station"? And what difference does the size make?

Edit - I checked your site so see what you're after, but I can't think of a station that I wouldn't pull my MCI into.

I was thinking if you noticed any Gas Stations that were both large enough and were accessible for say 40 foot MH's. Just if you noticed them. There are 2 reasons 1. To populate my website. 2. I'd like to travel in that area and like to know what's available. Cheers Ray

I can't think of any that I wouldn't pull my 42-foot MCI into. There used to be a couple but they closed many, many years ago.

Offhand, are there any problems with height at any of these fuel stops? Particularly for those of us with diesel Class A or large Class C's. I don't know if this kind of info is in the Milepost, but I have one coming very shortly.

Wildblu, I can't think of any of the stations where you would have a problem getting any RV in for fuel due to height. Most of the road house pumps are set parallel to the buildings, not perpendicular so they are easy in and out for the most part. Very few have canopies over the pumps and if they do, they are narrow and only cover the pumps, not the vehicle. The others with large canopies have plenty of clearance as 18 wheelers and passenger buses use the same pumps as RVs in many areas.

Here is an example of a Shell station in Charlie Lake area.


Here is one where I am refueling at Coal River Lodge. Nothing over the pump, which is somewhat common.


Here is one at Watson Lake that the pumps on the right are uncovered as well. I have used this place several times for quality mechanical service at a resonable price.

I don't think Watson Lake Motors has fuel anymore, though. Pretty sure the pumps were closed in August 2010. But there are other places in town with fuel.

We also used them for vehicle service in 2007 - the U-Haul car dolly had a tire that was starting to shred and they replaced it for us.

I'll add to Joe's collection of Alaska Highway gas stations ...
this is our fifth wheel at the diesel pump at Contact Creek:

In Beaver Creek, Yukon

the 1202 Motor Inn:


the Westmark RV Park:


That is the shower house on the left. The diesel pump on the far right. If you fill with fuel, you can dump for free at the RV dump station here.

Joe may recognize the old Beaver Creek customs building, which was moved across the street to become the RV park office after the new customs building opened north of Beaver Creek near the Stalberg Airfield.

Just a couple more stations.
Here is the Yukon Motel RV Park, café and gas station. It is at the north end of the Teslin Bridge at the south end of the lake. The owner is the son of the folks that did own/run Mukluk Annie's. He also has a very nice wildlife museum and the food served is good.


And the Talbot Arm Motel, café, RV Park and station. Located in Destruction Bay, YT.
A diesel pump is on the outside but they have plenty of roof clearance for any motorhome or 5th wheel, I do believe. The low clearance sign appears to show 17.5 and I am guessing feet(?) Watch this one if you are over 12.5.



This is the Rancheria Lodge at Historic mile 710. It has one of the small canopies I mentioned but nothing overhead. Their campground is by the flags. It was at one time a territorial campground but now belongs to the lodge. Another good place to eat.
