Fielding Lake is nestled among tundra covered hills within the Alaska Range in the Interior. This large lake has excellent fishing. Other summer activities include wildlife viewing and hiking. Winter activities include ice fishing and all kinds of snow activities. Access to the park is at Mile 200.5 of the Richardson Highway. Facilities include a small campground, latrine, and boat launch. Please respect the private property adjacent to the park.

The Fielding Lake area is subject to high winds and blizzard conditions in the winter, so use caution and be weather aware. The elevation of the park unit is 2,973 feet, so be prepared for chilly nights, particularly in the winter. Winter ice on the lake often remains until July.

Cabin furnishings include plywood sleeping platforms, a kitchen counter, shelves, table and benches, wood stove, fire extinguisher, and an outdoor latrine. Firewood is not provided and can be hard to find at this cabin. For water, renters must bring their own, or purify lake water or snow.

Please help keep it neat and attractive for those who will use it after your visit.
