“The Premier Launching Spot to Outdoor Fun!”

Company Overview

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.

Daily Updates on our Facebook Page also seen here.

Unfortunately rain remains in the forecast for the next couple days. Lots of wet areas showing in the launch so there is likely lots of new overflow out there. Any riding on the rivers should be done with extreme caution this early part of the season and with the warm weather expected into the rest of the week. The office is closed until Friday. Have a safe and festive Thanksgiving. ...
