Description

The Campbell Tract is a 730-acre natural area used mostly by urban recreationists seeking a piece of Alaska wilderness in the heart of the Anchorage. The tract is a BLM administrative site with a restricted-use airstrip surrounded by Alaskan boreal forest containing twelve miles of non-motorized multi-use trails. The tract is bordered on three sides by city parklands creating an unbroken connection to the Chugach Mountains to the east. Depending on the season, visitors to the tract may encounter moose, fox, coyote, lynx, black bear and brown bear. Campbell Creek meanders through the northern part of the tract and provides spawning habitat for rainbow trout, Dolly Varden, silver and king salmon. The tract is also home to the Campbell Creek Science Center, which provides outdoor education programs for people of all ages.
