Had an amazing experience here. There is so much to do for families with little ones. We have a 5, 1, and 4 month old and there was plenty to keep them busy.

“Quiet fishing spot not too far from Fairbanks”

Not far from Fairbanks is North Pole, a little town with all the amenities required (laundromat, grocery store, restaurants and fishing/tackle shops, of course!). On the outskirts of North Pole is Chena Lake Recreation Area, a quiet lake perfect for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, SUP, or just enjoying the scenery.

There are two different camping areas: Lake Park and River Park. We stayed in the Lake Park area because the cell signal was much stronger there. When you first enter the Lake Park area, there is a tent area to the right and RV (or just larger sites) area straight ahead. We also visited the River Park area, and it looked nice. Both areas are wooded without views of the water, but within a quick drive. Beware the roads in are gravel and very dusty, so take it slow.

There are no hookups, and you may hear that there is potable water there, but when you arrive, the pumps say that the water should be boiled or treated before it is consumed. We didn't want to put this in our fresh tanks, so we filled up before we arrived. There is a dump station on the way out of the park.

One tip: if you plan on camping more than 5 nights during the course of the year, get an annual camping pass for $100. That's the price of 5 nights, but anything beyond that is free.
