What to See and Do in Delta Junction
Delta offers much for the visitor to see and do. Of course, there is the never-ending view of the magnificent Alaska Range. Free ranging and fenced herds of buffalo, fenced herds of reindeer, elk, cattle and even Tibetan Yaks share the bounty of the land with moose, caribou and homesteaders in the area. Great fishing can be enjoyed in the numerous lakes and rivers. Fly-in fishing and hunting trips are available locally. You might try a flight-seeing trip around the area in a "bush" plane or take an evening wildlife tour in a bus, a canoe or a riverboat.
A wonderful view of the Alaska Pipeline as you cross the Tanana River bridge eight miles north of town, will be sure to bring the cameras out. You can also tour an operating pipeline pump station just 6 miles south of town.

The Delta Junction area is the home of two state campgrounds, Clearwater Recreational Site and Delta Recreational Site and two state parks, Quartz Lake State Park and Big Delta State Historical Park.
We also have a wonderful visitor's center and Sullivan Roadhouse, the oldest roadhouse in Interior Alaska. Built in 1905, it is now the only restored roadhouse and historical museum in the Interior of Alaska.
Or you can tour an operating homestead and experience what life was like in the early days of Delta. Tours of farms including dairy, beef, and hog operations are available. Delta is home to a meat processing plant and one of only 2 dairy processing facilities in Alaska. Check out the spectacular gardens, both commercial and private. With the long daylight hours, Alaskan's grow some huge produce!
