“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.

Water levels are still really high but starting to come down a bit for now, More rain expected tomorrow and Saturday that probably will bring the rivers right back up. There is alot of junk flowing down the river still.. If you are heading out please be safe and ready for any thing out there...
Don't forget the parking lot must be cleared out by the 15th of October to prepare for the Winter season.
