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.

Ok folks, I have had a couple requests for a update. It is snowing and the rivers are not safe for travel. The Mule Creek Earthquake has kept everyone busy cleaning up and it has been a pretty stressful two weeks for everyone. We will be opening to the public 9am Friday, December 21, 2018 for day pass access. Winter Season, Annual pass and Members access is via your swipe cards. The most recent conditions are that there are many areas of open water and white out conditions, fresh snow with overflow. THERE MAY NOT be ice under overflow this time of year and the earthquake shook up the ice pretty good. Daylight is at its lowest so do not risk your life, Alaska will bite. Temperatures are expected to be cold enough to harden the snow and ice over the next week. There have been several professional level snowmachiners out scouting trail and they have been able to take back trails to access the lower Yentna River. Take some time, be safe and please check on our friends and families that have been out there during the summer to winter transition. ... See MoreSee Less

I’m thinking about just coming up and getting my sled and trailer off of the air strip? Have access to that?

We hope everyone is safe and recovering from the Mule Creek Earthquake and aftershocks. Some photos of the walk path down the hill. A significant part of the hill has slumped off and partially blocked the slough. No impact to the launch area but we will need to do some analysis going forward. Check on your friends, neighborsmand family, times like this are when America is at its best. ... See MoreSee Less
