Lake Louise State Recreation Area
Lake Louise State Recreational Area is located near Glennallen in the Copper Valley. Lake Louise is a favorite playground for Alaskans year-round. Area activities include camping, fishing, boating, bird watching, hiking, biking, berry picking, snow machining, skiing, skating, hunting, and Northern Lights viewing. Lake Louise offers great year round fishing and sports four species of fish: lake trout, whitefish, burbot and arctic grayling. The lake trout run from 8 to 12 pounds, but 20 pounders are not uncommon.
Lake Louise and the surrounding area are home to a great variety of wildlife and birds. It is the only known recorded freshwater nesting site for cormorants. This nesting site, known as Bird Island is also a rare inland nesting site for gulls. The Lake Louise area is the summer home to trumpeter swans, loons and many other water fowl. Wildlife viewing opportunities include moose, wolf, bear, fox, sheep, lynx and the annual migration of the Nelchina caribou herd each October through November.
