Salcha River State Recreational Site is 40 miles southeast of Fairbanks at Mile 323.3 of the Richardson Highway and next to the Salcha River. Salcha River State Recreation Site offers campsites, boat launch and a public use cabin. Winter activities include cross country skiing and snow machining up or down the river (when frozen). Its location makes it a great get away from Fairbanks. The river has an excellent grayling fishery and a good Salmon run in July.
