Our mission at River’s Edge Resort is to provide a satisfying and memorable Fairbanks experience for guests as they utilize our outstanding facilities and customer services. Furthermore, we want to create value for our guests and associates. 

A third-generation Fairbanks family developed River’s Edge Resort in 1989 as a 80-site RV Park, but that was only its first phase. Facilities and amenities were added each year, and the final construction phase was completed in 1999. River’s Edge Resort consists of a 167-site RV Park, 86 private cottages, a full-service restaurant and deck overlooking the Chena River, and a 10,000 sq. ft. lodge housing eight hotel executive suites, a 2,000 sq. ft. banquet and meeting hall, lobby, and gift shop. The result is a distinctive 15-acre landscaped riverfront property that is unique not only to Fairbanks but to Alaska.

The Employee Experience

River’s Edge is located just two hours from Denali National Park, where activities such as camping, hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing, river rafting, and horseback riding are available. The more adventurous person will enjoy road trips to the Arctic Circle or boating trips on the many river systems in the region.
