World Class Fishing


Big Lake, Rocky, Matanuska, Canoe, Irene and Long Lakes offer some of the best fishing opportunities in Southcentral Alaska. Try your hand at catching Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, Arctic Char, Northern Pike or Burbot in the lakes, or take a short drive up the Susitna Valley to the Little Su for King, Silver and Red Salmon fishing.

Wildlife & Bird Viewing


Southcentral Alaska was once covered by glaciers. As the ice receded it left behind depressions in the ground that filled with water, making the area Lakes we see today. The lakes and bogs attract a wide variety of Wildlife and make it a natural bird nesting site and stop over for migrating birds.

Watercraft Rentals


Full Day and half day Canoe and Paddleboat rentals are available at Matanuska Lakes! Call for details or visit the Campground Host to make a reservation.
