Beaver Lake is stocked by the Alaska Fish and Game for the enjoyment of our guests and the community. A fishing licenses and fishing gear can be purchased locally for those who would like to try their hand at fishing. If you really want some fun try fishing after the lake freezes hard. Drill a hole in the water and go ice fishing.

We have a nature trail around a portion of the lake. The nature trail is great way to walk to keep in shape or just enjoy some wild life when they fly in or walk into the site. Be careful not to get close to the moose. It has been years since we had a bear on site. Across the highway is Beaver Springs Nature Trail. It meanders from City Hall in North Pole to the Fifth Avenue Park. There are interpretive signs, benches, foot-bridges, and a memorial garden along the trail.

Nearby Chena Lakes offers camping, hiking, boating, swimming and excellent fishing.

Take a walk at Creamer’s Field. The wetlands and woods that surround this old dairy attract thousands of migrating geese and sand hill cranes in the spring and the fall. Many trails in the area make for a relaxing walk in the middle of Fairbanks.

Hike to Angel Rocks. This three mile round trip hike will yield spectacular views of the Chena Hills area. The rocks and caves are great fun and it is especially beautiful during the first couple of weeks of September.

Finally, the Northern Lights in Alaska are truly spectacular! Read about the Aurora here. Or photos here.
