The small town of Trapper Creek is located along the Parks Highway between Wasilla and Denali National Park and Preserve and offers plenty of adventure and fantastic stunning views of Mount McKinley.
Trappers Creek offers excellent, year-round outdoor recreational opportunities. In the summer, the options are endless, from fishing for salmon and trout, hiking the trails, camping, hunting and even panning for gold. The snowfall in the winter season creates a winter wonderland full of activities. Enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and dog mushing.
The area has been a working service station since the 1900’s when gold miners flocked to the area. You will find a number of quaint grocery stores and restaurants, ideal for highway travellers headed north or south on the Parks Highway, which runs straight through the centre of town.
