Fort Greely Housing Information

Fort Greely (Ft.) Housing and Information:


Fort Greely is considered a remote tour of duty as it is 100 miles away from the nearest town, Fairbanks. It is 350 miles north of Anchorage. There is very little shopping or entertainment in the area, most people travel to Fairbanks for that. Fort Greely is situated between two beautiful mountain ranges with breathtaking scenery. In summer months the sun does not go below the horizon, in mid winter the shortest day is about 4 hours of light.

Delta Junction, known as the end of the Alaska Highway, is the nearest town about 5 miles north of Fort Greely. The name "Big Delta", as it is currently used, refers to the residential and farming community located near where the Delta River joins the Tanana River, about nine miles north of Delta Junction. Delta Junction, once called Buffalo Center, is the city itself. Its city limits encompass about an eight mile radius and a population of about a thousand people.
