Twin Bears Camp is a state park facility located at milepost 30 on Chena Hot Springs Road, about 35 miles east of Fairbanks. It is on a small secluded lake in a rustic, woodland setting within the Chena River State Recreation Area.

With more than 250,000 acres of state recreation area surrounding the camp, recreation activities abound.

There is also a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, basketball hoop, ball field, and group fire ring. A five kilometer cross country ski trail is intermittently groomed when snow cover is adequate and the temperature is reasonable. Snow machines have easy access to the nearby Chena Hot Springs Winter Trail.

The camp borders a four acre lake which is used for many activities depending on the season: fishing, swimming, canoeing, ice skating or wild life observations (beaver, moose, and waterfowl).

The camp is run by park concessionaire Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival. https://www.fsaf.org/
