Community Visitor Center
The Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber operates a year-round visitor and community information center. All of the regional guides throughout the road system in Alaska are carried at the center and available for pickup. Visitor and community information on many smaller vendors operating everything from flight seeing to fly fishing, rafting to charter operations is also on hand. Business members are encouraged to provide the office with their contact information and brochures where appropriate.
The Chamber also serves the community through responding to resident inquiries, new arrivals to our community, as well as providing referrals to our our local business members and appropriate government and nonprofit agencies.
We are happy to help you! Stop by our offices located in the Eagle River Town Center, across the hall from the Chugiak-Eagle River library at 12001 Business Blvd. Suite 108.
