Discover Moon Lake State Recreation Site

Venture further afield and you can discover nearby state recreation sites like Eagle Trail and Tok River, or take to the skies on a scenic floatplane ride.

Planning a getaway to Alaska? While Moon Lake is popular with local day-trippers, staying the night is the best way to rest, relax, and reconnect with nature.

A three-hour drive north, Fairbanks is a gateway to the mighty Denali National Park and Preserve and offers a good selection of rental RVs. Moon Lake is also a day's drive from the Canadian border, so why not browse rental RVs in cities like Whitehorse?

Getting Outdoors

Four picnic sites dot the lakeshore and are great for enjoying lunch with a view. There's a boat ramp for small crafts which makes Moon Lake popular with water skiers. Alternatively, launch a kayak or canoe and enjoy a relaxing paddle along the shoreline.

Birders will be in their element with the chance to spot migrating sandhill cranes and resident trumpeter swans, as well as an array of other waterfowl species. Moon Lake is also a habitat for wild moose, who like to graze around the shoreline. For the best chance of spotting moose, head out at sunrise or sunset.

In the summer months, Moon Lake is a popular landing site for local floatplane pilots. This gives the park a distinct Alaskan flavor and is guaranteed to add a dash of excitement to your day. Anglers will jump at the chance to reel in freshwater fish – with a little butter and garlic, you'll be all set for a fish fry back at your RV rental.
