The White Mountains....Remarkably Remote, Surprisingly Close!

Located just an hour's drive from Fairbanks, Alaska, the one-million-acre White Mountains National Recreation Area offers stunning scenery, peaceful solitude, and outstanding opportunities for year-round recreation. 

Summer visitors to the White Mountains pan for gold, fish, hike and camp under Alaska's 'midnight sun.' The Nome Creek Road provides access to two campgrounds, trails, a gold-panning area and a departure point for float trips on Beaver Creek National Wild River. In winter, visitors travel by ski, snowshoe, dog team and snowmobile to enjoy the 12 public-use cabins and 250 miles of groomed trails that make the White Mountains one of Interior Alaska's premier winter destinations.

This site provides information on recreational opportunities in the White Mountains as well as practical information for planning your next trip. If you have further questions, please contact us or stop by our office in Fairbanks.

What's New

July 30, 2014

This summer the BLM replaced the Moose Creek Cabin built in 1986. The aging structure had a few issues that were too expensive and/or difficult to repair. The new cabin is less than a mile from the old cabin and has a nice view to the south. Photos to come!
