Shirleyville is a remote manned camp facility located approximately 15 miles
southwest of the Native Village of Tyonek on the west side of Cook Inlet.
The facility provides lodging and meals to workers, primarily in "oil
patch" related work.
The facility originated as a fish camp and converted to an oil field support
camp during the boom days of drilling activity. The facility ultimately
became a bar and restaurant until the owners retired. Aurora, in partnership
with the Native Village of Tyonek, purchased the facility in 2001 and re-established
it as a manned camp to support renewed drilling and development activities
in the area. Subject to capacity, it is open for business to anyone in need
of lodging on the West Side of Cook Inlet.
