Willow is an unincorporated community in Matanuska-Susitna Valley.


Get in[edit]

Willow is easily accessible by car, being an approximately two-hour drive from the nearest international airport. It is also possible to fly a private plane to the local airport, or hire an air taxi.

Get around[edit]

It is easiest to get around Willow by car or bicycle, but there are many lakes in the area and a crafty few travel by boat.


  • The lakes. Willow is home to many lakes and small ponds, and these are very popular among boaters, primarily wp:Nancy Lake and wp:Willow Lake. The latter is also the location of the seaplane base, owned by the airport across the street.
  • The rivers. Willow is known for Willow Creek State Recreation Area. The point where Willow Creek feeds into the Susitna River is popular as a fishing hole.


  • Fish. This is a common sport among the locals as well as tourists.


Willow is not known as a tourist trap, but souvenirs can be bought at many shops in the area.




The nearest inn is a Best Western in Wasilla. A motel used to exist at the Capitol Speedway in north-central Willow, but it was shut down after a guest manufactured meth in one of its rooms.
