Rika's Roadhouse & Landing, Alaska - Management's Own Description

* Distances listed are direct linear distances, actual travel distance may be different.

  Welcome to Rika's Roadhouse & Landing at Big Delta State Historical Park; still serving Alaskan travelers as it has since 1904. The roadhouse was restored in the late 1970's by the state of Alaska and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Rebuilt with original timbers on a new foundation, it is still a welcome retreat from the dusty road!

From the vantage point of the riverbank trails, the park offers a magnificent view of the Alyeska Pipeline suspension bridge where it crosses the Tanana River.

You will enter Big Delta State Historical Park from a different point than the 1920's motorists, who drove the original Valdez-to-Fairbanks trail. Turning off the Richardson Highway at Milepost 275, you will see a gravel access road and parking area to your left. As you begin your adventure at the park, take a moment to pick up a walking tour brochure.

The Packhouse Pavilion Restaurant serves travelers delicous homemade meals from our breakfast and lunch menus. There is a bakery on site that sells whole pies, loaves of bread, and many other delicious items for those who have their own cooking facilities in an RV or a camper. According to an article in the Seattle Intelligencer, we serve ''The best food in all 1400 miles of the Alaska Highway.'' After a walking tour, you'll appreciate the refreshments as well as the wonderful view in our sunny atmosphere.
