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.

Deshka Landing

Little before and after pics. We received about six inches of fresh snow this morning. Some trail groomers have been out.

There have been reports, again, of trail stakes being moved and/or run over/knocked down. All the work that is done marking and grooming is done by volunteers. Their hard work and dedication is done to help trail users be safe, so please respect what they do for the river community. Thank you.

With the Iditarod fast approaching, Sunday, March 4th 2018, make your plans now to head out to Deshka Landing! We are the last spot on the road system to see the mushers on the trail. The race restart is scheduled for 2pm and the teams normally start to arrive about an hour later. Get away from the crowd and enjoy a short, easy walk to the Iditarod trail where you get to be up-close to the action cheering on the musher’s and their teams as they head to Nome! We have plenty of parking that is only yards away from the trail. Bring the family out so the kids can see what the teams look like on the trail and not in a crowd! Or bring your snowmachines and head out on the river to have a bonfire or visit the cabins of family and friends! We have plenty of parking and amenities to make your Iditarod experience memorable! ... See MoreSee Less
