Welcome to Trapper Creek
Trapper Creek is a region on the northern edge of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough of Alaska. This small town is situated between the city of Wasilla and the Denali National Park and dates back to 1906 when prospectors discovered gold along Cache Creek. Trapper Creek is one of the trails people took in their search for fortune, and eventually the Alaska Road Commission transformed the trail into a wagon road that stretches from Talkeetna to Cache Creek. The trail, now renamed Petersville Road, became the spot at which Trapper Creek became a town.
The place is a popular destination for snow machining, and offers a spectacular view of Denali while traversing the 39-mile winding path of Petersville Road. Twenty miles from the Parks Highway you can find Forks Roadhouse. This humble tavern previously served the miners that were searching for gold in Cache Creek, and now it stands as both a historic site and an active eatery for visitors who love the atmosphere of the olden days. Peters Creek is also a nearby rustic camping ground for anglers who want to spend the entire day catching the creek's trout and salmon.
Trapper Creek has a very small population of residents and few services aside from a post office, gas station, and elementary school, though there are more services available in the tourist town of Talkeetna, about a half hour away, and the remaining services would require a trip to Wasilla or Anchorage.
