Outdoor Fun

Wildlife Viewing There are a lot of wildlife viewing opportunities near Eielson Air Force Base, and the ADFG site has guidelines on wildlife spotting for non-hunters. A few areas require permits, mainly in reserves and sanctuaries. Remember to be careful around wild animals and give them plenty of space; they don't know you're just watching.

Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge includes 2000 acres of waterfowl safe land, and an educational facility for visitors. There are many species also protected here, and the refuge has youth camp education programs, as well as year-round events.

Fairbanks North Star Borough Parks and Recreation has several parks and facilities for local use. Only some of these are listed here. Check their website for more information.

Birch Hill Recreation Area: This borough park features a Nordic / cross-country skiing center and disc golf course (in season).

Georgeson Botanical Garden: This University of Alaska Fairbanks facility is a research center, but welcomes visitors interested in native, wild, and cultivated plants. Alaska grows them big; especially cabbages and dandelions, and you can see them for yourself here. This is the northernmost botanical garden in North America, and mainly exists to help develop the horticulture of Alaska. Some areas are available to rent for events. They are looking for volunteers. Check their website for details.

Fairbanks' Pioneer Park: This is a borough park with a historic theme and several museums. It is a public park, with no general admission fee, but several of the museums on site do have entrance fees. Visitors may be interested in the Alaska native Museum, the Pioneer Museum, the Pioneer Air Museum, one of the on-site restaurants or shops, arts galleries, or attractions.

The Salcha River State Recreation Site is only about a half hour south of Eielson on Alaska 2/Richardson Highway. It has camping sites, a boat launch, and a public use cabin.

The Harding Lake State Recreation Area: is a little over half an hour south of Eielson on Alaska 2/Richardson Highway. The recreation area has boating and fishing, hiking trails, many campsites, picnic sites, and athletic facilities.
