The Delta Junction Area
Viewing Information

The lands around Delta Junction offer a range of wildlife viewing opportunities, including the unusual opportunity to see wild buffalo. The area is a patchwork of state, federal, and private lands and much of it is accessible by road.

The town of Delta Junction, about two hours south of Fairbanks, has played many roles over the last century from gold town to military outpost to farming community. It is also the official end of the Alaska Highway where the 1422 mile road joins the Richardson Highway to complete the route to Fairbanks.
