Welcome to Chena Lake Recreation Area
Chena Lake Recreation Area is not what you might expect in Alaska's Interior.  It's near Fairbanks and next to North Pole, yet remote enough to give you the feeling of wilderness. 2,100 acres to explore and enjoy! The park has two distinct personalities; the Lake Park, with a 260 acre lake and the River Park meandering along 4 miles of the Chena River. The Lake Park hosts three volleyball courts, one horseshoe pit, a playground, multiple day use picnic sites with tables and fire rings, two covered pavilions, two changing room/warm up buildings, two designated swimming areas with sandy beaches, a boat rental facility, two fishing docks (one handicap accessible), a lake boat launch, potable water stations, restrooms, and during winter ice fishing and miles of trials. The River Park is stretched along 4 miles of the south bank of the Chena River and hosts one volleyball court, one horseshoe pit, one covered pavilion, one changing room/warm up building, a 4.5 kilometer self guided nature trail, river boat launch, potable water stations, restrooms, and multiple day use picnic sites with tables and fire rings. Chena Lake Recreation area has two campgrounds, one at the Lake Park and one at the River Park.
