Continuance:Bed & Breakfasts and Lodges Across Alaska
Salcha River Guest Camp
The Salcha River Guest Camp is reached after a breathtaking 30-mile trip up the Salcha
River, located about 40 miles north of Fairbanks. The Camp is situated on Horseshoe Slough,
which over the years, has evolved into a series of beaver dams and ponds. There are several
families of beaver that maintain the beaver dams and keep the ponds alive. The ponds are a
natural attraction for moose and waterfowl. Many of the camp’s activities are centered
around these beaver ponds. Nature trails wind around the camp and wildflowers are abundant
and vary from week to week. A distinct feature of this lodge is the art studio. You can
try your hand at landscape painting, aromatherapy, nature crafts, and floral art. Collect a
few items from your nature walk, and make a beautiful keepsake from your trip.
