During our summer months enjoy a lake view with access to fishing, canoeing, kayaking and more!
Area Information
Wasilla, Alaska is home to the Iditarod Sled Dog Race Headquarters. In the past few years, Wasilla has also hosted the re-start of the Iditarod Race, because Anchorage didn’t have enough snow. The Iditarod Sled Dog Race is over one thousand miles of snow, ice, cold and dark between Anchorage and Nome. Billed as the “Last Great Race,” the Iditarod truly is a phenomenal feat both for the dogs and the mushers. The Iditarod takes place the first Saturday in March and continues for a week or more.

The Iditarod visitors’ center is open daily in the summer season, and weekdays during the winter season. Historical displays on the Iditarod, summer cart rides with an Iditarod musher and dog team, and souvenirs can be found here.

With the Iditarod in mind, take a tour of an Iditarod sled dog kennel. Several Iditarod racers along the Parks Highway give tours of their kennels and some offer rides with their dogs. It’s quite an experience!

The Knik Museum and sled dog Musher Hall of Fame is open during the summer season for those of you who just can’t get enough of the Iditarod and mushing.

Yes, fishing and hunting are big in Wasilla—it’s an Alaskan thing. Everywhere you go in Alaska, there are rivers, streams, and lakes, and all of them are full of fish just waiting for you to drop a line. Wasilla offers local fishing guides, river charters, and lakes stocked with Rainbow Trout, landlocked Salmon, Aractic Grayling, Lake Trout, and Arctic Char. King Salmon start the swim up stream in early June. The highest catch rates usually can be found in Alexander Creek, Deshka River and the Little Susitna River.

For a little site seeing, stop in the Town Square Art gallery, or the Dorothy Page Museum and Historical Townsite. The 1917 Alaska Railroad Depot is an interesting stop—it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry has displays of farm machinery, mining and military equipment, snowmachines, boats, planes, trains, timber and petroleum industry, and telecommunications equipment. It is open during the summer season.
