Airpark, The Alaskan Pilot's Second Home."
Airpark Lots, Cabin Plans, Runway, and Lake Frontage Still Available.
Imagine a crisp, quiet night,
where the moonlight sets the snow aglow and your bonfire casts sparks
into a clear starry night where the northern lights dance
above you. Beyond the fire, teams of Huskies strain north toward
Nome in the ultimate test of stamina, determination, and the will to
stay alive. You're standing on the frozen Yentna River witnessing
the Last Great Race, the Iditarod.
And all you did was step out your
Bentalit Village Airpark, set
amongst the scenic Fish Lakes of Southcentral Alaska, is crowned
with a 2300' runway -- a rare find in the Alaska wilderness. With
direct access to the Yentna River, this peaceful sanctuary is
accessible by boat, floatplane, and snowmachine as well as by
airplane. The Airpark is a pilot's paradise-- and a sportsman's
dream. Here, world-class fishing is just a cast away. Huge
silver, red, pink, chum, and king salmon, and trophy rainbow trout,
grayling, and burbot teem in the Yentna's many tributaries, including
the famous Lake Creek, conveniently located just a couple minutes
downriver. The Fish Lakes themselves abound with feisty northern pike
and salmon. Hunting is also very popular in the area. You
will not have to go far to find half-ton grizzlies and massive bull
moose. Hiking, four-wheeling, boating, canoeing, and water-skiing
are standard entertainment in summer, and snowmobiling, skiing,
sledding, icefishing, and dogsledding are popular in winter.
The Last Frontier offers pilots
spectacular flightseeing opportunities such as Denali National
Park. Mt. McKinley, "The Great One" dominates the horizon to the
northeast. In summer in the land of the midnight sun, sunset
occurs as late as 1am and sunrise as early as 4am. That gives you
21 daylight hours to explore and
enjoy a juicy steak, shopping, and theater in Alaska's largest
metropolis. Anchorage with its Merrill Field and Lake Hood is
just 30 minutes flight Southwest across the Cook Inlet; Birchwood,
Palmer, Wasilla, and Willow airports are just as accessible. If
you're not in the mood for flying for your dinner, there's always
Bentalit Lodge. Located within the airpark, Bentalit Lodge serves
gourmet meals, offers a regulation-size racquetball court, billiards,
ping-pong, and can house you or your guests in sumptuous style.
It sure beats fighting traffic.
There are a wide range of lots
available, one to five acres in size, both waterfront and mountain view
properties. Please visit the Lots Available page for more
information. We also have photos of the area, covenant
information, and listings of services available.
Thank you for visiting our
website. We hope to see you in future.
