McSkunk Junction is a railroad switch on the Roaring Camp & Big Trees Narrow Gauge Railroad. It is in Roaring Camp near the millpond. The conductor has to get off the train and throw the switch to set the tracks so the train can go to the depot (and water tank) or to the playing field.

According to legend the name was chosen to mark an event between conductor "Mac" McJunkins and a skunk.
