McGrath, Alaska - Iron Dog Checkpoint Cam

This camera is looking downiver of the Kuskowim River, pointed northwest from the Inoko Lodge in McGrath, Alaska. This is an excellent vantage point to watch iconic Alaskan events, as well as the changing seasons of the Upper Kuskokwim River.

In February, you will glimpse the Iron Dog, the worlds longest, toughest snowmobile (snowmachine) race and catch the racers speeding down the frozen Kuskokwim river. The Inoko Lodge is the front and center where many racers pull off the river.

In March, this camera catches the activity of the world famous Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, as teams come towards the McGrath checkpoint.

Witness "break-up" when the ice goes out in May. Second tree from left has the “Ice Clock Box” mounted to it, an annual tradition where if you guess the right time the ice goes out , your ticket could be the big winner!

Enjoy seeing some of the beauty and fun that McGrath has to offer! Come visit McGrath!
