Lot of floatplanes there, you can take floatplane ride from there to various tourist attractions or just half an hour city ride

Very interesting..... watching sea planes taking off and landing. A different way of life than the lower 48 states.

One could sit for hours and watch the float planes come and go. Very good walk around the lake. Well worth a visit.

We only knew a little about the local air services, however through the trolley tour got to see both Lake Spenard and Lake Hood. The range of float planes and flights taking off or retuning was amazing.

I've been around private airplanes since my teens but have never seen any airfield even approaching the size of the one at Lake Spaniard, nor one that has areas for both planes with wheels and those with floats. I've always known that there were a larger number of private aircraft per capita than in any of the lower 48. Nonetheless, I was in awe of the sheer numbers of small aircraft in the immediate area of Lake Sopenard. This is a Must See for anyone interested in small aircraft and the important role they play in the daily lives of residents of our northernmost state.
