  • We camped overnight at this resort. We pulled in and looked around for a campsite, we found a nice one right on the river. The sound of the river was so peace full. It was very relaxing just setting u...  more »

  • I only drove to Chena Hot Springs for the hot spring and the ice museum. Both were pretty cool. The hot spring was very clean and nice. The people running it were fine, and the guests were okay. There's also a warm pool and three hot tubs (one outside) for those with kids under 18. The ice museum was fantastic. All the impressive work that goes into that place is beyond words. The tour got a little awkward at the end for those who don't order drinks because then you're just sitting at the ice bar, but even that is cool. I'd recommend this place to people who love nature and like the very community driven vacation spots.
  • Stayed in one of the fox rooms, very comfortable. Decided to do a guided atv tour, which was to tons of fun and our guide was super nice! Had dinner at their restaurant which was yummy! They grow their own food that use in the restaurant and you can tell. They also give tours showing how they are working on being self-sufficient, this includes energy, food, and recycling. The hot springs are of course fantastic, and extremely relaxing. Service was great, all the employees are super nice. I would definitely come back, but recommend bringing a cooler if you don't want to rely on the food they have here.
  • Beautiful place and nice staff. However, the place can use a face lift. The parking is scarce specially on a weekend. Also went to the pool/hot springs. Didn't like the idea of having to use quarters for the lockers. Management could have easily included that cost on top of the admission price. The locker room could also use a little renovation. The pool is also dated. The hot springs area is good. Liked the big rocks surrounding the area. The ice museum was nice. Unique experience. Definitely recommend checking it out.
  • This was the first time I had ever been to a hot spring. I thought it was a crazy idea to go into a body of water when it was below zero and snowy, but this was a magnificent experience. I've visited 3 times and loved it every single time. While driving back to Fairbanks late at night, I witnessed the most beautiful lights in the sky. I hold this memory dearly in my heart.
  • I'll start by saying I did not stay over night or do all of the activities. But it really isn't what I would call a 'resort'. It is more like a camp or fair. You can horseback ride, go on some tours, and there is a playground, and obviously the hot spring itself. But that's about it. And the hot spring looked pretty dirty. Lots of people in it all the time. Supposedly there is a place to stay but I would be disappointed had I paid for this place. It's probably more suited for kids than anyone else.
