ABSTRACT
The article provides information on Campbell Creek in Alaska. A free-flowing stream in the heart of Alaska's largest city, the creek is a resource to treasure and protect. Many Anchorage paddlers use the creek for early season paddling practice; others enjoy the quiet paddling amidst a protected greenbelt in the city. Campbell Creek begins in the wetlands of Campbell Tract, the last large undeveloped tract of land within the city. A small stream with a width of 7 to 12 feet, Campbell Creek is normally only 7 to 12 inches deep. Early in the season, swollen with snowmelt, the creek may be up to 3 feet deep, exceeding its banks and making sweepers even more hazardous than later in the summer.
