Backroads America: Chena Lakes

A Day at the Lake

Chena Lake is a man-made lake created in the 1970s when gravel was removed for the massive Chena River flood control dam/dike. The earthen filled dam is 7.1 miles long.

Chena Lake Recreation Area is a 2000 acre park with picnicking, camping boating, and swimming. My sister and her family love to kayak. I love to watch. 😎😎😎
