Alaska's rivers, streams, and ocean
waterways have long been important travel corridors, and remain so today in the

Delta River near Delta Junction.
For now, we are offering two important
resources, the Alaska River Logs and the Alaska Boating Forums.
- The Alaska River Logs were originally
compiled by teams from the now defunct Bureau of Outdoor Recreation, then part
of the US Department of Interior. The Alaska Public Lands Information
Center had this to say about them: "These river logs consist primarily of trip
reports filed by the now-defunct Bureau of Outdoor Recreation, which surveyed
Alaska's rivers for possible inclusion in the National Wild and Scenic River
system in the early 1970's.
In some cases, the logs are supplemented by
information from the
Bureau of Land Management, the Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service, and
the National Park Service.
