Upper Chatanika State Recreation Site and campground has reopened
(Fairbanks, AK) – The Upper Chatanika State Recreation Site at Mile 39 of the Steese Highway has been reopened, effective Tuesday, June 24, 2014, now that construction is substantially complete. The recreation site closed in May to enable the rerouting of the campground road and addition of four new campsites. The building contractor is awaiting arrival of picnic tables and fire pits to finish the project, with an expectation that they will arrive later this week. The remaining 20 campsites are open.
