ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the Lake Creek in Southcentral Alaska. Lake Creek flows southeast 54 miles to its confluence with the Yentna River and varies in width from 150 to 250 feet and falls an average of 25 feet in elevation per mile. Lake Creek is considered as a popular fishing stream and offers outstanding views of Mount McKinley, Mount Foraker, and the Alaska Range. Good camping sites are available along Lake Creek except at its mouth, which can be congested and noisy with floatplanes and powerboats during peak fishing season.
