Big Lake

Venture off the beaten track to the lesser known Big Lake, where you'll enjoy the amazing views of South Central Alaska.

Big Lake Vacation Packages

The popular city of Anchorage stands 20 miles to the south of Big Lake.

A mere 15 miles journey east from Big Lake is Wasilla. Here, you can visit the Iditarod Trail Headquarters.

You and your family might like to watch an exciting game at Sullivan Arena, where the University of Alaska Anchorage and Alaska Aces can be seen. It's a sports fan ritual to delay going home by heading to a nearby bar. Whether it's to bask in the glory or curse your luck, look for somewhere decked out in the team colors and have a debrief on the game.

For tourists who think they've experienced all of Big Lake, Eagle River is a great choice for something a little bit different. Only 18 miles southeast, it's where you'll find St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church and Eagle and Symphony Lakes Trail.

Palmer, a regional hub, is another popular place. It is approximately 25 miles from Big Lake and boasts a lot of worthwhile visitor attractions, such as Pioneer Peak, Bodenburg Butte and the Palmer Research Center and Matanuska Experiment Farm. The Independence Mine State Historical Park and the Arkose Brewery are other attractions here that are worth visiting.

A fantastic way to discover this region's great outdoors is to go mountain biking or hiking.

The area provides visitors with a wide range of leisurely pursuits, including cycling and bird watching.

This destination has a number of great places to enjoy rafting, so make sure that you leave room in your schedule to fit it in. Sea kayaking is another popular activity here.

The Big Lake region is the perfect place to get out and enjoy winter activities. When the temperature falls, grab your snow gear and try snowboarding or skiing.

It's inevitable that all getaways eventually end. However, after exploring a place blessed with such beauty, you'll go home with many memories which will occupy a piece of your heart for years to come.

The closest airport, Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, is 25 miles to the south of Big Lake.
