    We are in fair banks right now we want to head north to the artic circle and upto atigun pass then come back to marion creek campground to camp. We plan on getting fuel at yukon camp and cold foot up and then the same on the way back down BUT we want to head to manley hot springs and we are trying to find out if any one knows for sure if manley has fuel.

    Thanks.

    Always had fuel when we went there. The post office, general store and gas station (and electric generation too) are all one operation and if the fish are biting you may need to wait awhile to get fuel. The folks at the roadhouse can help notify the people who run the fuel point. Just don’t get in a hurry and you’ll get your fuel in due time.

    What's your fuel range? It's about 275 miles to go from the Yukon to Manley and make it back the the Hilltop station north of Fox. The pump in Manley is usually available this time of year though.

    Consider using msr 10l water bladders if you need extra fuel.
