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.
