Introducing Lake Louise

Lake Louise, known as Sasnuu' Bene' in Ahtna, is found in a far eastern corner of the Matanuska Susitna Borough between four mountain ranges: the Wrangell, Talkeetna, Chugach, and Alaska ranges. The area is roughly 100 square miles, with just under half of that area being made up of water. Lake Louise and the adjoining Susitna Lake make up the largest lake system in Alaska with road access. Lake Louise is about 138 miles from Wasilla, 127 miles from Palmer, and 40 miles from Glennallen in the Copper Valley. It has few permanent residents and land here is purchased primarily for recreational purposes. Lake Louise property is either semi-remote or truely remote and cannot be reached by car.

The 90-acre Lake Louise State Recreation Area is the main draw in the area and offers campsites, cabins, and picnic areas for public use. Lake Louise provides excellent fishing throughout the year, and is filled with burbot, lake trout, and arctic graylings. The surrounding area is also home to various types of wildlife. Bird watching is popular here, and Lake Louise is home to Bird Island, a rare inland nesting ground for gulls. Two waterfront lodges are also nearby, with a couple of restaurants and bars. During the winter, Lake Louise is a checkpoint for the Copper Basin 300 Dog Sled Race, an annual race held in January. Other wintertime activities in Lake Louise include viewing northern lights, ice fishing, and cross country skiing.
