Have enjoyed a spring fishing trip there over the past several years. Savage River area has unique tundra foliage and fairly secluded fishing opportunities for that time of year.

Simple pleasures. Read about its origins! Nice lake, and staying in the rangers cabin was cool. In the winter with good snow, the cross county skiing is fabulous.
