Outdoor Recreation

Fort Wainwright is managed for a number of different types of public recreational use. All areas that are determined open for recreational use may be closed temporarily during periods of military use. Recreational areas are areas that are open to all types of recreation, including off-road vehicles (ORV's). Modified recreational use areas are areas that are open to hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking, skiing, and berry picking, but are not open to any type of ORV, except in the winter. Limited recreational use areas are restricted to all types of recreational use year round except hiking, skiing, bird watching, berry picking and other low impact recreation activities. Off-limits areas are restricted to public access and use year round.

Outdoor Recreation Regulation Supplement-contains information on recreation access to army training lands and required permits, off-limits/closed areas, hunting, fishing, trapping, firearm restrictions, ORV and motorized watercraft use, prohibited activities, and related maps.
