Situated on 20,000 acres approximately two miles south of North Pole, this is a
project managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.
The dam was constructed to prevent Chena River flooding and offers numerous
recreational and educational possibilities
The area is open to non-motorized recreation such as horseback riding, biking,
hiking, picknicking and wildlife watching. You will need to tell the gate attendant that
you are visiting the flood control project rather than the lake and river park, in order
to avoid the entrance fee.
Tours are available in the summertime for groups of 10 or less. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Call (907) 488-6359.
In early July, the Corps spend about three weeks hosting the Moose Creek Dam
Salmon Watch. Visitors will have a chance to observe chum and king salmon migrating
