“A wide, dirt track trail connecting the private Kepler Park with the Long Lake Loop.”— Dot Helm
Note that Victor Lake is sometimes called Triangle Lake, esp. on USGS maps, but local maps, like ADF&G (Fish and Game) use Victor Lake for stocking data. On interactive maps, you may see the name change, depending on level of zooming.
If you don't want to use the Kepler Park facilities, please park along the gravel road leading to the bridge between Kepler and Bradley Lakes. Their outhouses and trash services are for their clients. Please respect that. This park is more visible from the highway than the Matanuska Lakes SRA is so they've had a lot of issues over the years with their facilities being used by general public rather than their clients. Please respect their adjacent private property.
You can, however, pay to use their facilities and enjoy picknicking, paddleboating, and other neat activities. It's a great place to be on hot summer days. For more information, click here.
