Gulkana National Wild and Scenic River

Description:

The Gulkana is one of the 5 most used rivers in Alaska, primarily because of its easy access at the put-in and take-out points. The river is known for its recreational values, including excellent sport fishing, particularly for chinook (king) salmon during late June and early July. The Gulkana also contains sockeye salmon, grayling, and rainbow trout, as well as the northernmost population of steelhead trout in North America.

Directions:

From Glennallen, drive northeast about 15 miles on State Highway 1 (Glenn Highway) to State Highway 4 (Richardson Highway). Travel about 20 miles north on Highway 4 to Sourdough Campground. Continue north for an additional 25 miles to the put-in at Paxson Lake Campground.
