    Default chena pump road

    Was wondering if there is a boat launch on the Chena Pump road, or were do you launch to get on the Tanana from fairbanks, also I see a road called Bonanza creek road that goes down to the Tanana is here a launch there. Thanks Steve

    Default yes

    Take Chena Pump a couple of miles past that growing little mall area (Justa Burger, etc), past The Pump House, past The Boat Shop, and when you are bending right and it looks like you are about to start climbing, slow down and take a little road to the left. There is a little "picnic area" there. As soon as you take a left off of C Pump, go a hundred feet or so and take a right. You'll go right into the Tanana. You'll see where everyone launches. DO NOT leave a vehicle there unless you need to. There are a lot of punks that vandalize down there. Good luck. j

    You can also launch at Pikes Landing, Pike's restaurant on Airport Rd, or At the University Ave Campground, both a short hop to the Tanana and perhaps a better place to leave your rig.

    Be careful on the left side near the grass mound. There is a rock or something in the water that has a tendency to swallow trailers. I have heard of two coming out with bent axles and one with no axle at all.
