Lake Camera

Auke Lake Camera

We feel that the UAS campus has one of the best views of any college campus. The REC Center has recently installed an HD camera near the dock on Auke Lake. While this serves the purpose of keeping an eye on our watercraft in the summer, it is also a great way for former students to get their "Auke Lake Fix".

Auke Lake is a gateway to kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, and fishing in the summer with x-country skiing and ice skating in the winter. The Auke Lake Trail offers a great break between classes with a trail that allows you to leave campus and return via. a loop trail with lots of scenic outlooks along the way.


Auke Lake is the start of the Ironman Alaska triathlon on August 7, 2022. The University of Alaska Southeast campus (UAS) will be the location of all transitions and the finish line. UAS is happy to welcome Ironman to Alaska!
