State Recreation Area - Alaska
Nancy Lake State Recreation Area is a lake-studded landscape in Alaska preserved for recreation purposes. Clear waters are surrounded by unspoiled forests, providing tranquil settings for recreational activities such as canoeing, fishing, hiking and camping during the summer. During winter it is an ideal place for cross-country skiing, dog mushing and snow machining. Nancy Lake State Recreation Area is located just 90 minutes drive north of Anchorage along the Parks Highway. Nearby towns are Wasilla, Houston and Willow. The broad Susitna River Valley, including what is now the recreation area, was scoured by massive glaciers, which once covered it. Through the years, most of the Nancy Lake area has remained wild and natural. There are 13 rustic cabins that are available for rent on a nightly basis throughout the Nancy Lake State Recreation Area. Cabins are located on Red Shirt, Lynx, Nancy, James, and Bald lakes.
