Great little air park
If looking for a getaway air park where you can boat, fish and hunt try here.
Crop dusting strip
Land with permission only
Bobby Gene was caretaker 2014
Caught some "attitude" here from more than a few people. Wasn't as friendly as I would have liked.
Woo hoo! Three forks saved the day!
Traveling due West I ran head on it to worsening weather. spun around and tried to get back in the clear but the sky opened up and the worst rain I've ever encountered began to fall. Flash flood stuff. immediately headed toward the closest airport (Three Forks). Landed with plenty of thunder and lightening. Moral of the story. You can watch the weather very closely (I DID) and still get bushwhacked! Thank you Garmin!
Nice area, nice general aviation airport.
Great airport / FBO. A bit spendy but hey, worth it.
Stopped here by chance
What a great "quiet" little place. Stayed the night on a long cross country. Two courtesy cars. Stayed at the Lazy B Motel. Clean, cheap and safe. Afton is what I'd like to see more of in America. Less corporations and more unique mom and pop businesses. Good food at the Elkhorn Cafe. The local talk will be kids, cows and horses. Check out the photo of Jesus holding a shotgun. Only in Afton! :) I will return!
I flew in via Canada. Northway didn't wish to send anyone down late so I flew direct here from TOK (precleared for a technical stop) and Canada. Customs is around by gate 6 at the main terminal.
Fuel and a store
Fuel and a small grocery store. A dump!
This place sucks for tie downs! Had to chip away at concrete to free up old concreted over tie downs. Not a friendly transient airport, long was from town and lodging. Only one taxi.
Good for Northbound customs. Call first
Pilot lounge and courtesy car
Great little pilot lounge and old cop car available.
There is an old Lincoln Town car available here.
The day I landed here I got a great workout with a 25 mph direct cross wind. So windy when I needed to leave, I decided to use a farmers field not the airstrip. Small crop duster strip. Decent pilot lounge.
Great example of our bloated wasteful government. Over staffed by government workers for "TWO" airline passengers? Really!? Small wonder we're broke.
Nice little strip
Courtesy car, food nearby. Remote and peaceful.
Hot high great camping strip! Look forward to going back!
Nice little airport.
Stopped for fuel, before tank was topped off the fuel person had gotten me a car and a reservation at the Pioneer motel in town.
Not as scary as you might think.
Great place to rent a car (or borrow) to drive to Fisherman's Wharf.
Very neat and tidy
Nice, tidy small city airport. Courtesy car, pilot lounge etc.
Massive blimp hanger here. Small museum located inside the hanger.
Don't go swimming
If heading North, Depart over the lake, turn east and head for Reno. Once across the ridge, turn north and parallel the ridge . More emergency landing options this way. Better than going swimming. This lake is deep and cold!
Whoa baby! Pay attention!
Real sinkers here, Be careful! Landing to the west is downhill.
Great little airport
Great little airport. Restaurant right across the street.
I found the place to be quiet and peaceful.
I landed and camped here July 2012. I never heard a peep from the campers across the fence and there were no unwanted people on the airstrip. I did have a few kids stop by to oogle my 172 but I enjoyed the curious company. plenty of Picnic tables along the west fence, restrooms through the gate at mid field and absolute solitude. View of the lake is awesome! One water faucet down near the lake and one through the east gate mid field. Look left to see the lone faucet.
Landed here to look at a Cessna 150. Nice clean airport. No courtesy car, not much for dining. Frequent skydiving. Great pilot lounge.
Landed at OLM
Stayed the night. Used Jensen's courtesy car. Great FBO!
Great little airpark
Just a quick stop to say I landed here.
Not much to report
I was here! That's about all there is to say. :)
Don't screw up!
Don't screw up! The Cemetery is right up against 07. :)
I actually landed here!
A bit rough but not a problem. If the wind is up, pretty choppy around the trees.
My home base
Great out of the way overbuilt airport. Hardly ever used but first class home port.
Great little town
