  • Drove to Chena from Fairbanks and spent a day visiting the resort. It was a lot of fun and beautiful property. Hiked the Ridge Trail to Angel Rocks trail, which was very steep and climbed quickly in....  more »
  • If I could give them zero, I would. 1- There is no parking dedicated to the lodge resident, so you have to park your car far away from the room. 2. The reception was not knowledgeable, and I had to...  more »

  • 3.5 stars. Not bad for hot springs, however it was smaller than I thought and to be honest, a bit touristy. In all fairness, I have been to the hot springs in Hokkaido, Japan, so it is tough for Chena to follow. Also I went to the Chena hot springs in the afternoon, so I imagine it would've been a way cooler experience at nighttime. Temperature of the springs was hot, which is great. Lots of beautiful scenery around as well.
  • Great place to relax and rejuvenate. The rock pool is really awesome when it is cold out. The hot areas of the pool compliment the cold. A very great place and a must when visiting the Fairbanks area.
  • Chena Hot Springs Resort is an excellent place to go, to unwind, to hike, to just plain experience. You will not be disappointed. Go visit, and maybe plan a several days' stay. There is so much to experience at the Resort. There is a restaurant/gift shop. The food is top notch. Warning: The big bowl of clam chowder is gigantic, you may just want the bowl, rather than the big bowl. It was super-delicious, but way too big to get half-way through. There is an "ice castle", the hot springs, that you can soak in, hiking trails, a duck and moose pond, and most likely much more that I missed. Go check it out, you won't be disappointed. Well worth the time and effort to visit.
  • You can tell from my posted pictures this place was AMAZING. We camped here for 2 nights in our travel trailer. There is a charge for the hot springs of $15 per person per day but that is a day pass. The hot springs can be very crowded but kids under age 15 (If I recall the correct age) are not allowed in the hot springs. There is a separate pool area that is enclosed for the kiddos. We were able to experience the Northern Lights the night we were there. It was an amazing experience. The road/drive to the resort is a bit rough so take you time driving. There is nothing within MILES of the location & unless you plan to eat every meal at the location restaurant you will want to bring snacks for simple meals for yourself. If you forget something.. there is NO OPTION to "run out & pick it up". Beautiful place we will for sure be back.
  • Came here as part of an excursion on our cruise tour (land portion). It was great. So amazing. My fiance and I want to come back during Aurora season to see it while relaxing in the hot spring.
