About Us

Klondike Doughboy has been providing Skagway with amazing souvenirs and fry-bread since 2014. Our goal is to provide both a superior customer experience and tremendous value for our customers.

Rocky and Lillian Outcalt are passionate about exceeding your expectations.

During the Klondike Gold Rush, Canada worried the miners would come unprepared to survive in the harsh conditions of the gold fields.  To ensure miners had a supply of basic commodities of food, Canada required miners to have 2,000 pounds of food in order to be admitted into Canada and make the trek to the gold fields. Miners could mix some of these commodities together and make a dough.  Using this dough, they could wrap it around a stick and cook it over a fire or fry it in hooligan oil or bear fat.  The story is told that the miners would carry a sourdough start for their bread. To activate the sourdough start they placed it on their chest so their body heat could warm it up.  If the season was right, miners could pour birch sap on their frybread for a tasty treat.

Rocky learned to make doughboys as a fundraiser for his church. Lil learned to make frybread from her Native American in laws.

They now make frybread commemorating those brave Klondike miners of 1898.

Come and enjoy a miners treat!
