Local attractions

There's plenty to do and see in the Copper River Valley including some of Alaska's native villages such as Mentasta, Chistochina, Gakona, Gulkana, Tazlina, Kluti-Kaah or Copper Center, and Chitina. The Copper Center Museum and the Ahtna Native Heritage Center are also worth a visit.

The region is also known for the far-ranging mountain views, the glaciers and rivers and extensive wildlife. Fishing, hiking, canoeing and kayaking are some of Alaskans' favourite activities.

Watersports are available in the five major rivers, all accessible by car. These rivers are the Gulkana, Klutina, Tazlina, Tonsina and Copper Rivers. The campsite is conveniently located near Tolsona Lake.

Hiking is best in the Copper River Valley, thanks to its dense tree forest, and on the Matanuska trail to the glacier.
