I was bordering on average to above average on this one. Entrance to the park was FREE which is hard to beat. We had read and heard good things about the Salmon Bake that starts at 5:00pm. I would say the park was average and the Bake was above average. The park - You can take your time walking through... More

A pleasant mile and a half walk along the Chena River from downtown where you can enter for free and just walk around. They have a lot of re-located pioneer cabins featuring period furnishings and folks to tell you about the history. The old railroad takes visitors around the park so you can get a look at all there is... More

They have old homes from years past that they took down and moved them to this park. They have food and an old airplane building also.

I don't know how I missed Alaskaland on previous trips, but was invited on a Segway ride and we visited the park; can't wait to bring my grandskids here when they are old enough! There are lovely little buildings with various offerings and I see great imagination went into this place and continues to build it.

I went to this park in the shoulder season with my brother's family. It was a short walk from my brother's house and my first stop on my Alaskan adventure. A collection of log cabins and attractions along winding roads interspersed with lovely trees and bushes. Most of the "attractions" were closed when we visited, but it was still a... More

This place is a pleasure to walk thru--had my first job here ever scooping ice cream thirty years ago and the place is still there today. Always better to visit on a sunny day. Lots of local vendors.

Went to the Salmon Bake - had an awesome time. Went back to look at displays on a different day; weather had turned bad and mostly we were wet and miserable as we tried to make our way from one little house to another. Make sure the weather is good before you go. There is no way to stay dry... More

This was a nice spot to kill some time. It is definitely oriented towards families and the tour busses. A great place to people watch, but not much else for the wandering Fairbanks visitor. Some displays are a bit tacky. But the paddle wheel boat museum is worth the stop.
