Favorite thing: Eagle River has a Walmart, along with the usual fast food and gas stations. Small boutiques offer bits of daily life available to pack away and take home. You can go camping in town, a lovely campground situated on the river and there is a nature center with hiking trails.
Favorite thing: Eagle River has many great parks open to summer time activities. Notice the long shadow in this picture? It was taken at almost 10:00 at night. The long Alaskan "midnight sun" makes anything possible!
