Big Delta State Historical Park
Honestly, I knew nothing of the place until reviewing the Traveler’s Guide to Alaskan Camping which outright stated, “even if you are not going to camp here, this is a place you must stop”. So, with that endorsement it made the list for a stop at the least. Once we did make the stop, the calm quiet of “no-where Alaska” bribed us into staying two nights before moving onto Fairbanks.
Although the camping consisted of only a space in a gravel parking lot, camping so close to the old farm had it’s benefits. Waking to the roster ka-kaw’ing and hear the sheep do their thing from time to time was nice, but simply having a well groomed area to walk among each morning and evening made it a stop not easily forgotten.
