How to reach:
To reach the tidal bench marks from Anchorage, proceed by boat north for about 19 km (12 mi) to Goose Bay and Goose Creek on the west side of Knik Arm. The bench marks can also be reached by road from Anchorage by going around Knik Arm for about 103 km (64 mi). The bench marks are along the west shoreline of Knik Arm about 2.4 km (1.5 mi) north of Goose Creek. In the area there is a row of old pier pilings, a gravel road leading up from the beach to a gravel airstrip, and a large excavated gravel pit. The tide gage and staff were on the row of old pier pilings.
