ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the Kroto Creek, Moose Creek, and the Deshka River in Southcentral Alaska. Originating at Kroto Lake, Kroto Creek flows south through forested hills, flats, and wetlands to meet Moose Creek, forming the Deshka River. Kroto Creek meanders and twists freely across the Susitna Valley, roughly paralleling the Susitna River, which provides paddlers an opportunity to explore a stream free of powerboats. Moose Creek begins at a small unnamed lake several miles east of Kroto Creek and flows roughly parallel to that creek for about 40 miles before the two join to become the Deshka.
