Point Mackenzie Is A Happening Place

Real Estate Agent with Valley Market Real Estate


A deep water port, a new prison, Burma Landing for fishing, a new ferry system in the future as well as a possible railroad extension are just some of the attractions in the area. This area is about 16 miles from downtown Wasilla on a paved road so it's easy to access.

Port Mackenzie is a growing deep water port. I just found out today that the dock will double in size next summer so that much larger ships will be able to dock there. When the planned rail way spur goes in this area will explode with commercial activity.

Point Mackenzie General Store has a cafe, cabin rentals, and essential convenience store items for local residents and visitors.

It is only a hop across the inlet from Anchorage but without the ferry service or bridge it still feels like it's miles away. Point Mackenzie is a fantastic place for snowmachining, boating, fishing, or finding a piece of land for your get-away cabin.

Drop me a line if you would like to find out more about Point Mackenzie.

Sounds like lots of great development happening there. How long is the ferry ride going to be?

Hi Rich,  It's only about a 3 mile ferry ride across to Anchorage, it's about 80 miles to drive around. 

But that 3 miles is across upper Cook Inlet with 30 foot tides and ice.  They are building a special Ferry for it and have to make a special dock somewhere in Anchorage.  This isn't there yet and I don't think it will be for a few years.

Thanks for stopping by...
