The Matanuska River Valley is a part of The Matanuska Susitna Borough. However, for this website I am choosing to separate it from the Susitna Valley. The Matanuska River Valley runs parallel to the Glenn Highway and in front of the Chugach Mountain Range from east to west along the Matanuska River to the Cook Inlet about 10 miles beyond Palmer. For the purposes of this website I will include Lake Louise, Eureka and all the towns along the Glenn Highway from Eureka to Palmer and Wasilla.
The Matanuska River Valley has a rich pioneer and farming history. It is also a popular recreational area with many places to go for fun. In addition, it's beauty is unsurpassed. Keep your eye on this tab for stories and photos from this spectacular area of Alaska.
