DLOA LLC was formed in 1998 to insure that there is continued access to the Lower Susitna Drainage. The drainage includes the Susitna River, Deshka River, Yentna River, and the Alexander Creek and all their tributaries. We provide year-round access to the river system via a boat launch ramp. We encompass approximately 41 acres, of which about 20 acres is use for the main parking lot to include parking, storage, a small store, indoor restrooms, and fuel.

We have had a small dusting of snow and cooler temperatures are climbing back just not as cold, single digits above and below zero are expected this weekend, mild for January actually. Most trails are in great shape, Rolly Creek remains the better trail heading to the west and north to Deshka and Yentna River areas. Some riders are going out the launch, be carful where the two Su’s meet below Corral Hill. It has not fully frozen over in the area and it is still healing up from the Mule Creek Earthquake, big land slide on the bluff there. Be safe and it should be a great weekend to hit the trails, ice scrappers are a good idea as well. ... See MoreSee Less

Looks like very cold temps will continue thru the week. Please be careful if you head out and be prepared. There will be pockets of -30/-40 outthere and it will freeze exposed skin before you can feel it, also on exposed handle bars. Have a safety bag just in case you have a break down.Here's a look at the minimum temperatures expected across the Central and Eastern Interior over the next few days.

Yesterday's minimum temperature of -34°F at Fairbanks was the coldest temperature since March 2017. The cold temperatures across the Central and Eastern Interior are expected to continue throughout the week. Temperatures will generally range from 15 below to colder than 40 below during the week.
