A beautiful little campground lies tucked beside a crystal clear river that offers great fishing opportunities and a peaceful place to spend the day. Many visitors enjoy this recreation site for its well kept campsites and for the picnic area. Others enjoy this site for the river access provided by the boat launch. The clear waters of the Delta Clearwater River provide excellent fishing opportunities for Arctic Grayling, whitefish, and salmon.
The Delta Clearwater River provides access to the Tanana and Goodpaster Rivers. Many people enjoy the opportunity to float the Delta Clearwater River.
For those who enjoy walks and a chance to view animal life and plant life close-up, there is a boardwalk located along the river behind the campsites. At the end of the walk you can fish for grayling, whitefish, or salmon. If you are traveling in the spring or fall, Clearwater State Recreation Site is an excellent place to see sand hill cranes, swans, geese and other migratory birds.
