Fairbanks Off The Beaten Path: 42 reviews and 45 photos

To the southeast of town (near Eielson Air Force Base) there's a huge watershed along with an information center. The watershed was created to protect Fairbanks from the Chena River after a devastating flood. Not many tourists go there, but it's an interesting site and a vital safeguard for the city of Fairbanks.
