The area around Tangle Lakes Campground is about as scenic as it gets with the
Alaska Range looming just to the north and the sub-arctic tundra extending out as far as one
can see. Wildlife such as moose, brown and black bear, caribou, beaver, eagles, loons and
swans are often seen all through the area. Fishing, especially for arctic grayling, can be excellent
in the lakes as well as in the river.
