Lake Hood Seaplane Base - Review

This is where the Aerials doors off Anchorage and Alaska around this region usually take off from. Receiving nearly 200 flights every day this is the world's biggest and busiest seaplane base. It is owned and operated by the state government. There are 3 water landing areas for see planes and one gravel runway for land landings. The base even works during the winter, when the water has frozen over, for planes equipped with ski landing gear. The only real activity for you to do here is to walk around the Lake Hood and Lake Spenard area while watching planes come in. It's quite a nice way to relax. And you get a lot of photographs.

Lake Hood Seaplane Base, Anchorage Reviews

  • A great place to walk and watch the planes.

  • Neat place to get a closeup of seaplanes

  • Parking/Entrance is in the 'back' facing the lake. Staff is friendly and accommodating. If you go on a weekday in winter you'll more or less have the whole place to yourself.

  • Cool place to see seaplanes

  • Came in the early AM to catch the sunrise. Unfortunately it was too cloudy. Very peaceful.
