Lonely Planet review

At the far edge of town, and just a short walk to Golden Sands Beach, the Aurora offers generic-style comfort in simple motel-style rooms, some with full kitchenettes.

You can camp for free on Golden Sands Beach, but do so a bit down the beach as the street sweepers dump debris here daily. Showers are available at the Nome Recreation Center . You can reach the center by heading up Steadman St and turning right on E 6th Ave. Further from town it’s unofficially permissible to camp just about anywhere: simply hike away from the road corridor, avoid private property and active mining claims, and clean up after yourself. About 40 miles north of town, on Kougarok Rd, there is also the lovely, free Salmon Lake Campground, run by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Our independent authors have visited Aurora Inn and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Nome.
