Recreational activities are permitted on Fort Wainwright training areas providing those activities do not conflict with training activities. The Fort Wainwright U. S. Army Recreation Tracking System (USARTRAK) has been established to facilitate public recreational access to the Fort Wainwright training lands. USARTRAK is designed to keep you informed of training area closures, and to help you check in to open training areas. Please review important USARTRAK information and rules to be found at www.usartrak.com. It allows users with a Fort Wainwright Recreational Access Permit to check in through the web site or through an automated telephone system.
You must check-in to USARTRAK every time you go into the training lands
You can obtain a Recreational Access Permit online from the USARTRAK web site (www.usartrak.com), or in person at the Fort Wainwright Natural Resource Office (Bldg 3023), Fort Wainwright Visitor Center, The Fort Greely Visitor Center or the Donnelly Training Area Natural Resource Office in the hangar at Allen Army Airfield on Fort Greely.
You may check-in through the web site (www.usartrak.com) or by calling the automated USARTRAK phone system (Toll Free 877-705-8725, Fairbanks: 907-353-3181, Delta Junction: 907-873-3181, Palmer 907-373-4637). When checking in with USARTRAK, please remember that you must have a valid RAP, and that you will not be allowed to check in to areas which have been closed due to Army training activities.
If you have trouble getting a RAP or checking in, please call the Fort Wainwright Environmental Office at 907-361-9686.
We hope that you find this system easy to use. It is designed to make the registration and check-in process as simple as possible for you, the recreational user. Please have a safe and enjoyable visit on Fort Wainwright lands!”
The RAP must be carried on your person while recreating on Fort Wainwright lands.
Persons 16 years or older wishing to hunt, fish, trap, camp, ORV, or participate in other recreational activities must first get a Recreation Access Permit (RAP) before entering US Army Training Lands.
The RAP is free. The Recreation Access Permit is valid for two years from the date of issue.
The RAP number is required in order to use the Army’s automated access system (USARTRAK). The RAP is good for use on Fort Wainwright’s Main Post, Yukon Training Area, Tanana Flats Training Area, Donnelly Training Area and Gerstle River Training Area.
When you call the USARTRAK phone line you will be given a series of prompts that will allow you to select the area you want, activity you will be engaged in, and provide you with information about training area availability. Your RAP number and one of the phone numbers is all you need to access this phone system.
