All of Beach Lake Road now paved
Beach Lake Road was recently paved from Birchwood Loop to the existing pavement starting near the Chugiak Dog Mushers Association parking lot. The 2-mile municipal road is now paved from Birchwood Loop to the Beach Lake Lodge at the end of the road.
The road provides access to Beach Lake, where there’s a public fishing/viewing dock, public access, a parking area and the lodge, which is available for rental.
Beach Lake is stocked with rainbow trout by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The 90-acre lake is also home to Arctic grayling and landlocked Chinook salmon. According to the department, the lake is best fished from a canoe or inflatable boat, although on a recent day fish could be seen jumping near shore.
For more information on the park, call 343-1500 or visit the Eagle River/Chugiak Parks and Recreation Department online at muni.org/departments/erparks.
