    Been quite a few years but we got a moderately loaded 206 out of there no problem. Of course one mans cub strip is another mans 206 strip, and I don't remember the overall dimensions but it should be plenty big for a 180 with a moderate load in skilled hands.

    Wood River in Healy?

    It's been years (about 14 to be exact) since I've flown, but by my best estimate I would say somewhere in the neighborhood of 750-1000 feet long and plenty wide enough for a cessna. It is a gravel strip so obviously you have to be more careful with tricycle gear. But I would say you are fine. The only other thing I would add is that the Kansas Creek strip is at a pretty high elevation (I think somewhere about 2500 feet but that is just a guess) so you will lose a little bit of performance from your engine.
