Nancy Lake, Willow Creek state recreation areas and Denali State Park open to snowmobiles


(Palmer, AK) – The Alaska State Parks Mat-Su Area Office has opened the Nancy Lake and Willow Creek State Recreation Areas and Denali State Park to the use of snowmobiles as of Wednesday, January 18.  Park staff determined that sufficient snow cover now exists to protect underlying vegetation in the parks.


Caution is advised in all areas as lake ice is variable.  Thin ice and open water exists in streams and river ice is unstable or flowing.  More details on current park conditions are available at http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/asp/curevnts.htm.


Remember that all snowmobiles must be registered with the Division of Motor Vehicles to legally operate on public land.
