From Chelatna Lake in the foothills of the Alaska Range, Lake Creek flows southeast 54 miles to its confluence with the Yentna River. Seven-mile-long Che1atna Lake is the largest lake in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. A beautiful clearwater run, Lake Creek varies in width from 20 feet to 200 feet and falls an average of 25 feet in elevation per mile. A popular fishing stream, Lake Creek offers outstanding views of Mount McKinley, Mount Foraker, and the Alaska Range. After the first couple miles of placid water, Lake Creek becomes swift, rocky and wild.
