LAKE LOUISE - LAKE SUSITNA - LAKE TYONE
Winter 2015 News Letter. Please take a minute to read this news letter.
TO REPORT A FIRE OR OTHER EMERGENCY DIAL 911
Calling 911 will connect you with Alaska State Trooper Dispatch. Trooper Dispatch will then transfer you to Palmer Police Dispatch (9G Base) as they have the responsibility for emergency dispatch in the Louise/Susitna/Tyone vicinity. Clearly state the nature of the emergency, your name, your exact location and a call back number. You should be able to provide the GPS coordinates of your location.
Or, CALL 748-4811
Calling 748-4811 will get you directly to Palmer Police Dispatch (9G Base) and will bypass the Trooper Dispatch and the transfer. This merely eliminates one step in reporting your emergency.
Or, IF YOUR EMERGENCY IS A FIRE CALL 259-3488
Calling 259-3488 will get you the Louise/Susitna/Tyone Volunteer Fire Department (LST VFD). You can also make an emergency or a mayday call on the VHF Radio Channel 11.

John Hicks, Chief – 907-259-4884
Mike Fassler, Deputy Chief Louise – 907-227-9235
Bob Rolley, Deputy Chief Susitna – 907-575-5758

Lake Louise Lodge – 907-822-3311 or 907-830-2410

Lake Louise and the surrounding area are home to a great variety of wildlife and birds. It is the only known recorded freshwater nesting site for cormorants. Lake Louise is the farthest north where the cormorant is found. The nesting site is accessible by boat from all of the lodges. Bird Island is also a rare inland nesting site for gulls. The Lake Louise area is the summer home to thousands of trumpeter swans and other water fowl. Caribou often spend the winter in the area and moose are a common sight around the lake and on the Lake Louise Road.
Lake Louise is fed by small streams and run off from snow and rain. It drains into Lake Susitna, which in turn drains into Lake Tyone. Lake Tyone drains into the Tyone River which flows into the Susitna River and finally into Cook Inlet. The Susitna River travels through Devils Canyon and although a few rafts have made it through, it is extremely dangerous. The water runs so fast through the canyon that salmon cannot traverse the route. Consequently, there are no salmon in the Lake Louise basin.
Today, Lake Louise is home to several businesses, most of which are open year round. Many people now reside in the area as well as many other people have recreational and weekend homes in the area. Lake Louise, Lake Susitna and Lake Tyone have great fishing, boating, bird watching, hiking, biking, snowmachining, skiing, skating, hunting, Northern Lights viewing and is a great spot to relax and unwind. Come join us and experience real Alaska at Lake Louise’s summer and winter playground.
