Evansville attractions:

Most of Evansville residents are Eskimos and Athabascans. Nearby Bettles is mostly non-native. The Hickel Trail, a 30 miles winter road, gives area residents access to the Dalton Highway and then on to Fairbanks. The Koyukuk River is used extensively during th esummer months. A airport is also nearby in Bettles. Due to the access to the main road, Evansville receives goods at lower prices than many other villages in the area. This helps local residents live a little better lifestyle and encourages visitors. Many hunters drive up the Dalton Highway in search of local game. Because residents also utilize this same game for subsistence, hunters are not always encouraged.
