also very accessible for do-it-yourself anglers looking to wet a line. The creek crosses the Parks Highway, but for the best fishing, head to Willow Creek State Recreation Area, off Willow Parkway Road. A large public campground gives anglers access to the confluence of Willow Creek and the Susitna River. Watch for bears!
Dog mushing is an integral part of the Willow community, as many Iditarod mushers call the area home. Several mushers off Iditarod tours, even in the summer months, when you can visit their kennels and even take a cart ride pulled by a team of eager huskies.
