  • This place is amazing no matter what time of year you choose to see it!
  • Eklutna Lake is a great place to kayak. Make sure you dress for rain and wear layers. Remember Eklutna Lake is glacier water, so the water temperature is about 38f. There are kayak and bike rentals at the Lifetime Adventures Eklutna Visitor Center. If this review was helpful please click the Like button.
