About Willow Creek State Rec Area

140 sites.

The broad Susitna river Valley, including what is now the recreation area, was scoured by massive glaciers, which once covered it. When the ice retreated some 9,000 years ago, it left a rolling landscape of elongated glacial deposits, called drumlins, dotted with hundreds of lakes and ponds.

The recreation area an ideal habitat for many mammals and birds. Perhaps most noticeable to the summer visitor are water dwellers, especially beaver and waterfowl. These animals are vital to maintaining crucial water levels in the ecosystem; their dams and lodges must not be disturbed.

3 Reviews of Willow Creek State Rec Area
Underwhelmed

Mainly just a parking lot, good access to deshka landing for fishing, camp host, dry camping, $15 FCFCS. The fire here a few years ago have left the drive into the campground sad and burnt out, but new life is now growing on some.

Calm Waters

Willow creek is a nice family friendly location. Willow is a nice central location for travelers from all around. Floating in your kayak provides such a relaxing day, don’t forget the bug spray though!

First to Review
Great campground, easy get away

Willow creek campground is a nice campground with paved parking and picnic tables, easily accesible camp spots. Gets busy some weekends due to fishing at Willow Creek and on the Susitna River. Well maintained facilities. You can get forgotten supplies at gas station a few miles away and possibilities to float down Willow Creek exist too depending on if you have the means and some knowledge of floating as there are some log jams and sweepers depending on when you float it.
